thanks for this. I felt a sense of place where people gathered to enjoy the area and each other. I am forever grateful that I lived most of my life before cell phones and the digital onslaught. I wonder, while it may be possible to renovate the lodge with a feeling and aesthetic of the original, will it ever be possible to “renovate life” to a sense of community and connection before the digital age?

A joy to read, and to see. Decades ago, I read a piece on New England that said that it felt like "the mortgage was paid" on the land and the people. Rural NYS has much the same feel. I trust you have read Richard Russo. And I do hope they keep the stone firepit.

Lovely place indeed, thanks for the photos which manage to convey the quaint dreamy quality of the place. I hope the renovation will do it justice.

This is a very special place. Thank you for capturing it. Less is more and the best things in life are simple places where people gather to enjoy life together. Thanks Eric.

The person who has completely invaded my privacy in every possible way, including taken over my computer, "liked" this post before I saw it just now at 10.30pm PDT. Had she not "liked" it on my computer already, I'd have "liked" it myself. Often when I log on to my computer, there's an icon which tells me "This location is already in use." That's never a surprise to me. I do in fact like this post. I don't know what time she "liked" it on my computer. I'm doing so at 10:40 p.m. PDT.
