Lake Kora

Lake Kora is spectacular lakefront property located on a thousand-acreas and features charming lodges. Lake Kora was once a private playground for the Vanderbilts but is now available for exclusive hire July, August, September and the first half of October – the perfect retreat for families or a group of friends.

There are twenty exquisite guest rooms which are spread among eight log cottages near the lake’s edge. Each is a realm of quiet and comfort, with original furnishings and fixtures made by Lake Kora craftsmen a century ago. Soft white linens and featherbeds, stone hearths laid with fire, elegant wood-walled bathrooms with vintage soaking tubs encourage long, dreamy repose.

Island House – The first building constructed on the property, this hideaway is on a small island in the lake, a short boat ride away

  • Typically not used, these are considered extra accommodation rooms.
  • Three upstairs bedrooms: one with a king bed, one with two twin beds, and one tiny room with one twin bed

Although in a quiet and secluded location, there is plenty of activities on offer to keep you entertained. The camp’s heritage bowling alley, tennis and squash courts, vintage board games, billiard, outdoor roller rink, lake activities, boats and balsam trails are only the beginning. Lake Kora’s three pristine lakes are at their most magical in the early mornings, just after the mist has risen, and the perfect time to glide your canoe through the still waters. Throughout the day, the lakes remain the centerpiece of the property. An array of watersports equipment – antique canoes, kayaks, one- and two-person sailboats, and windsurfing equipment – is available, and fishing equipment (including starter rods for younger guests) allows for further enjoyment of the lakes.

The rates include all your meals and non-alcoholic beverages. The chef provides fresh, delicious Adirondack fare aplenty: a picnic lunch on a sunny mountaintop, a lakeside barbecue, a multi-course dinner by the great fireplace.
