I actually was a cook at the Adirondack League Club (promoted from scullion after the "real" cook quit) during the summer of 1962.Quite the place. I remember absolutely clear water, a couple off Adirondack guide canoes or guideboats, I think they called them. Wide at the gunwales, swiftly swooping in an S-curve down to a narrow (maybe 9 inches?) flat bottom. Made of thin cedar, thin-necked oars that bent in the water if you pulled hard, and then snapped straight for a little boost of speed.And the Ballantine (of brewing notoriety) "cabin." Three stories. Tile shower stalls. Four bays on the water. Two for seaplanes, two for Chris-Craft speed boats. A generator shed back in the woods.Some "cabin."As I recall, a Bea and Alex Kilb were the season caretakers of the lake and the lodge. I uncertainly remember that they lived in Dolgeville.There were just a couple of grandmothers who lived near the lodge (their families no longer came to the lake, but they liked it). I cooked their meals, and the meals for about 13 staff members. Six meals a day. Bread, rolls, steaks, stews, soups, pies, cakes. Thank god for "Joy of Cooking" and all its "chemistry of cooking" chapters.
