Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: During the early 1960's Norris and Mary Dolly bought the lodge. He and his wife had six children, many grandchildren and great grandchildren. I am one of those fortunate six children.
Why the Owner Chose Elizabethtown, NY, USA:
In 1904 and 1905 Seth Sprague Terry, a NYC Attorney, came to the Adirondacks and had this "cottage" built for his family's summer vacationing. Mr. Terry owned the camp for 25 years and the lodge was then known as "Terry Cottage". During the 1930's E.E. Towne, a counsel for the Humble Oil Company, of Texas bought the "Terry Cottage". Later in the 1940's the world renown violinist and teacher, Louis Persinger purchased the property. He gave concerts in Town and taught students at the lodge. By the 1950's the lodge was sold to Herbert Thomas, whom owned most of the lodges on Cobble Hill during that time and the camps were known as "The Balsams". Herbert Thomas later sold this camp to my parents.
The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
It's not until you are driving up Cobble Hill and the lodge stands before you with the grand porch stretched out all along the front of the place welcoming you into its arms, do you realize that you can spend your day right here without ever feeling the need to venture out.
