Stealth Camp

Some of our friends who have Adirondack homes like to remove trees and brush to open their view of the lake. We take a different approach, trying to blend the home with the woods and taking out as few trees as possible. Of course, some trees die as a result of the trauma of construction, but here you can see how well the house blends with, becomes a part of, the woods around it. From the water, you can see only a bit of the evergreen shingling and yet we have great light and views of the lake. Being a steward of the Adirondack Park means being a good stewart of your own land, keeping it healthy and treading lightly. We think a stealth camp is much better than a camp that shouts for attention.
