With endless outdoor adventure from the door and a long list of facilities from tennis and squash courts to bowling, spa and watersports, fully-staffed Lake Kora is a lovely place to reconnect with family and friends.


Originally built in 1898 as one of the Adirondack Mountains' Great Camps, Lake Kora has been a family playground for over a century and even seen great battles played out on the softball court between Yale and Harvard. Nowadays, Kora is available for private bookings enabling modern-day families to enjoy the same lake-side romance that the Vanderbilts once did. With several buildings located on the banks of the lake, surrounded by pine forests, it is a magical setting for adventures by boat and on foot as well as hiking and fishing; and a large choice of facilities indoors means plenty to do whatever the weather.

The estate comprises 11 log cabins crafted over a century ago. Accommodation for 22 people is spread across eight buildings including the Main Lodge - which also houses the grand communal dining area; the unique, beautifully designed Tree House; the private Gardener's Cottage - a light and airy space with kitchen, living room and dining room; and The Boathouses - smart, one bedroom accommodations above the docks. The eldest of the buildings, the Island Cabin, is located on a small island in the middle of one of the lakes and accessed only by boat, with downstairs living area that opens out to a wraparound deck.
