When summer in Manhattan turned humid and steamy, the city’s elite escaped to the Adirondacks. And their lavish ‘Great Camps’ – sprawling timbered mansions, complete with wait staffs and private chefs. For the Vanderbilts, that place was Lake Kora. And today, families can experience the same tranquility and genteel grandeur. Here, towering pines meet pristine lake dotted with antique canoes and kayaks; rooms come with claw foot tubs and stone fireplaces. Meals are chef-prepared. And days are spent on the lake, adventuring, exploring the wilderness; nights, around the campfire toasting s’mores.
