This is Canada Lake, only an hour from where we live, near the Great Sacandaga Lake in the Adirondacks in New York State. Here are the grandchildren enjoying the view across the small, intimate lake.
The kids swam and swam and then skimmed over the water in kayaks or a canoe. They even took lake scrub baths with mild Ivory soap.
Look at the crystal clear mountain water. The concrete dock is the only one on the lake and a great place from which to swim or fish, early in the morning or in the early evening. The adults spent much time just sunning, and visiting while the kids swam!
This is the path , step entrance from the road. A visitor was struck by how Under the Hemlocks resembles a Steven King setting !
It was a boys camp years ago when the father of the current owner, owned and ran it.
The wide, comfortable porch along with the dock were my two favorite places. Sun shone directly only in the morning and was the place where I read two book during the week. The near building is the boathouse which also slept 4 people.
