|"Mountainlake Camp" was conceived in December 1996 as a peaceful, recreational, year-round getaway in the Adirondack Mountains for two couples or a small family. The area around the town of Loon Lake was chosen for its secluded beauty and rich history.|
|The Camp buildings were designed to have little impact on the land and to blend naturally with the surrounding forest and mountains. The buildings also attempt to reflect the heritage of Loon Lake in the use of materials, proportions and details which were "borrowed" from historic structures there.|
|The Camp itself is a study in building on a compact "footprint": environmental impact was minimized by limited site disturbance and use of materials. Also, very important to the design, it was possible to complete the project within one year of conception using the ownersą own labor to finish a builders 'shell'.
Throughout the design process, much thought was devoted to layout, dimensions, proportions and the use and placement of materials to create a compact building with the feel and facilities of a larger home.
The conception, design and building process was a rewarding experience. In 2003 we acquired our own direct access to Loon Lake. "Mountainlake Lookout" is located a short drive from the camp. There you will find a screened Gazebo and our own docks. At the Lookout you can enjoy beautiful Adirondack views including a classic Boathouse. Use the Lookout for a picnic lunch or swim and canoe from the docks.
We hope that you will enjoy "Mountainlake Camp" along with the immense and diverse natural beauty which will surround you.
