This Adirondack lakefront lodge with wraparound porches and waterside views was lovingly designed to allow the owners to age in place. The main home and an adjacent guest and caretaker quarters are connected by large, elevated porches with covered walkways.
Functionally tailored as a fusion of design that melds classic Adirondack Mountain retreat exteriors with turn-of-the-century Craftsman interior styling, the design is careful to keep expansive lake views and privacy in mind.
The main raised deck outside the master bedroom gives what is probably one of the most spectacular views on the entire lake down to the other islands and the state-owned land beyond that will always remain undeveloped. It also faces West, which was important to the clients so that they could see the setting sun over the lake.
