Introducing Wenonah Lodge, an illustrious Adirondack Great Camp meticulously crafted by financier Julius Bache in 1897. Poised gracefully along the shores of Upper Saranac Lake, this architectural marvel exudes a harmonious blend of Victorian opulence and subtle Japanese influences, setting it apart as a singular masterpiece amidst the panorama of turn-of-the-century lakefront properties. Nestled within its own private sanctuary, the Main camp presents a compelling offering, boasting 9 exquisitely appointed bedrooms, accompanied by 6 baths and a remarkable ensemble of 10 fireplaces that infuse every corner with warmth and grandeur. Rustic interior finishes exemplify Adirondack charm with birch bark walls, peeled-log beams, and decorative hardware. The property’s allure extends beyond its walls, featuring an expansive 235 feet of shoreline with unparalleled vistas of the lake and mountains. Additionally, the property offers a children’s playhouse, tea house, 2-slip boathouse, and an inviting sandy beach. Notably, the Wenonah Main Lodge shares its idyllic domain with two equally esteemed properties, bestowing the owners with a harmonious sense of community, cherished by all fortunate enough to call this haven home. You’ll be captivated by the impeccable preservation of the lodge, a true testament to its enduring charm. Immerse yourself in a seamless turn-key experience, where many of the original furnishings, carefully curated by Mr. Bache himself, still grace the spaces, preserving the legacy and authenticity of a bygone era. Wenonah Lodge stands as an embodiment of timeless elegance, where history and nature converge to craft an extraordinary narrative. A truly unparalleled opportunity!
