Lake Kora Luxury Lodges, Lake Kora, Adirondacks, New York Vacation Rental

 

The ultimate private escape, Lake Kora is an historic lakefront property set on one thousand secluded acres deep in the pine forests of the Adirondacks. One of the original “Great Camps” built over a century ago and until recently enjoyed only by its owners and their fortunate guests, this magnificent estate is now available for exclusive use. Lake Kora is an ideal place for gathering together loved ones, whether an extended family or a group of dear friends. Lake Kora comprises numerous buildings and several grand lodges crafted of timber, stone and iron hewn on-site with majestic picture windows for panoramic views of its exquisite setting. Up to 24 guests (inclusive of children) may enjoy Lake Kora in 16 guest rooms spread across six buildings for the base rate. Up to 35 guests can be accommodated an additional cost for a per person/per night fee. Additionally, the Island Cabin (accessible by boat only) can be rented for $3,000 per night; two bedrooms, sleeps 4, 1,390 sq ft. Total max capacity is 39 guests for approximately $31,480.

Gathering spaces abound throughout, and include a gaming room in the main lodge and the Playhouse with a squash court, a media room and a candlepin bowling alley. Other pastimes include tennis, boating on the property’s three pristine lakes, fishing, walking on the trail that encircles the lake or relaxing in the spa building’s whirlpool or sauna. Our resident chef will customize all meals in advance of arrival and serves farm-to-table menus to take advantage of local farmers markets, neighboring farms, etc. Meals are prepared by a gourmet chef and culinary team using locally sourced ingredients whenever possible. Meals are totally customized to your desire and various dining options. With togetherness as one of the most beloved advantages of a visit to Lake Kora, meals are served family style, most often at the long table in the main dining room. A number of different locations are available, however, the deck of the boathouse is a favorite spot for lunch; you might have cocktails on the lawn or a casual dinner in the Playhouse or in the island cottage. For an additional fee, wine, beer and spirits can be selected from our curated list or we can order from our local vendor. Guests also have the luxury of providing their own libations, wherein a corkage charge would be applied. Should the evening turn chilly, a bonfire – along with all of the fixings to make old-fashioned s’mores – may await you at the lean-to’s down by the lake.

Exquisite guest rooms are spread among 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.

Lake Kora is available during specific times of year and is closed during winter.

Lake Kora was built in 1898 as Kamp Kill Kare, a magnificent log-and-stone compound on a vast forest preserve, with its own 500-acre lake. It was an exclusive retreat, but soon the site of many grand affairs. Yale and Harvard teams practiced on the softball diamond and the eminent families of the Gilded Age came to dance on the Boathouse docks. No expense was spared on luxury and mountain charm: birch bark writing paper, a Venetian gondola, a floating lantern-lit bridge, and even a dancing black bear. The camp’s heritage bowling alley, tennis and squash courts, vintage board games, billiard, outdoor roller rink, lake activities (swimming, canoeing, kayaking, sailing, paddle boarding, motor boating, electric boating, & fishing), boats and balsam trails are only the beginning. Still in private hands today, the camp has remained astonishingly intact for more than a century.

Located in the pristine Adirondack Blue Lake Mountains of Upstate New York, the estate is 1.5 hours from Adirondack Regional Airport in Lake Saranac, 2.5 hours from Albany or Syracuse, 5.5 hours from Boston or New York City. Guests may also chose to arrive directly on property by seaplane or helicopter.
