About Prospect Point Cottages
What's Old is New Again...There's a lot to be said for being forced to scale back one's life. Travel far enough north in New York State and you will run out of: cell phone service, shopping malls, crowds, and valet service. On the other hand, you will gain far more than is lost. Plunk yourself dead center in six million acres and watch the possibilities expand.
Sturdy folks (with sturdy incomes) flocked to the Adirondack Mountains in the hey-day of the Great Camps and hotels. Undeterred by mud tracks, they boarded trains, steamboats, and carriages to reach their heart's desire -- the posh, yet sentimentally rustic, havens perched alongside (in our case) Blue Mountain Lake.
The Prospect House, with its 300 rooms, electricity, barber shop, bowling alley, telegraph office, orchestra, and elegant cuisine, was designed to allow its guests the finest amenities while enjoying a (nearly) unspoiled wilderness. Many old photos feature lavishly clothed men and women picnicking atop clear-cut mountain tops, the ladies' feathers jauntily saluting the distant views.
19th century vacationers took full advantage of the hunting guides, boating on the lake, and swimming in what must have been heavy and uncomfortable bathing suits.
For the 21st century visitor, the social expectations have shifted, but the mountain remains unchanged and the lake pristine. It's fun to visualize the old hotel and its famous residents, to wonder over the graffiti written on the walls down at the old generator building (now a shining example of the very best Adirondack style of both architecture and living). It's inspiring to stand on the rock where Verplanck Colvin left his marker during his historic mapping of the Adirondacks. And it's (as they say) priceless to witness the reunions of families who have spent untold summers at Prospect Point, returning with children and then grandchildren.
