The Adirondack's...We Had A Wonderful Time At The Dartbrook Lodge

Thank you Susan from A Southern Daydreamer for hosting another fun Outdoor Wednesday. 

I would like to share with you an earlier post.  I posted this in June...before I had the pleasure of participating in Outdoor Wednesday's. 
Please schroll down and read about one of our visit's to Keene, NY and our stay at the Dartbrook Lodge. 

On the babbling brook in Keene, NY is the Dartbrook Lodge...

Hello! I hope your last week was lovely! We had a great trip up in the North Country. The Dartbrook Lodge in Keene, NY is where we spent the bulk of our nights. I can't get enough of this lodge. It's rustic. The staff is gracious and the grounds and decor are beautiful with wild flowers amongst the pine and birch trees. From the property you can see the Adirondack high peaks and hear a babbling brook. Yes...there really is a brook at Dartbrook Lodge! Please enjoy the pictures below of the main lodge and its porch. I hope you can see through the pictures how special this property is. It's like stepping back in time except with all of the amenities of today.  Craftsmanship at its best.  Tomorrow I'll show you pictures of the inside of the cottage we stayed in and some of the other cottage's that they let me peak inside. I hope you enjoy a warm and sunny summer day! ~amy

An outside view of the main lodge.

Notice the bark siding.

Plenty of places to sit, relax, read a book and just take it all in.

Pretty lamp on the reception desk in the main lodge.

The front of the reception desk. Look at all of those twigs.

Bench in the reception area.

These stars hanging from the porch ceiling light up at night. They were so pretty!

Checkers anyone?

Some more rustic furniture on the porch. These were big rocking chairs.

If you're interested in seeing the inside of the cottages I posted earlier of the Dartbrook lodge...please follow these links...

Wow, Amy, I loved seeing these! I clicked on the posts to see the inside of the cabins - it is all so very charming! Actually, these kitchens look larger than mine - love the open shelving and little red check curtains.
Have a Happy Wed!

Hi Amy,
I just read through your blog. I laughed when I read about you saving things for the cottage, I saved things for our cabin months before it was built too! We still don't have a kitchen there but I have the curtains I was drooling over up! i guess that is what building your dream is all about. Good luck with building the cottage- I just became a follower.
