Your vacation home
... in the Adirondacks is a
contemporary log cabin chalet
on the edge of one of the most private bodies of water in the southeast
Your key to the locked gate admits you to a
private nature preserve
fronting on Thurman Pond, which in size is actually a 3/4 miles clean
Here you will see more beaver, osprey and loons
than you will people.
In fact there are only seven camps on this lake Most of the lake is a
nature preserve exclusively used by residents and noted for its
wildflowers, birds, and game. There is good berry picking in season too.
Because the lake is not available to the public, the fish are said to
be exceptional, especially for bass and pike. The one resident who
loves to fish, puts all his back, so the big lunkers are waiting for
you. He has had smallmouth up to 21 inches and pike up to 40 inches.
A dock and float gives you easy access to the water for swimming and
use of the camp canoe and row boat. Most of the time you will be the
only boat on this tranquil no-motorboat water.
Looking out across the lake from the camp you have a wide panorama of
mountains to the west for perfect sunset evenings on the deck. Later
you can gather around the outdoor campfire next to the shore and
barbecue a dinner.
Camp - Running Deer Lodge
chalet cabin is built of cedar logs on three levels, affording full
lake and mountain views A wall of glass windows and doors opens the
cathedral ceiling living area to the lake. An open hearth stove warms
the cabin and hearts on cool nights.
fully equipped kitchen shares this view. Off the hall is a full bath
and two bedrooms. Upstairs is a balcony sitting area overlooking the
lake and behind this is a bedroom and full bath. All the rooms are
completely lined with cedar.
Throughout, the furnishings have been chosen to be comfortable yet
compatible with the traditions of Adirondack Great Camps. Furnishings
and artifacts have been collected or specially made to suit this camp.
Rustic furniture - bentwood hickory furniture (rockers, kitchen chairs,
tables, stands, and even beds) - have been custom made by traditional
craftsmen. Artifacts of early Adirondack days decorate the walls and
tables: snow shoes, pack baskets, rustic bark framed prints and maps,
game and fish mounts, and much more. Before the hearth are
soft comfortable couches.
