Notes The original Loon Lake House built ca. 1880 was made of hewn logs and two stories high. Either two stories were added or a new hotel built prior to 1886. The 1886 "Adirondack Illustrated" describes the hotel on page 92. It had rooms for 300 guests. It was still there in 1914. Stoddard first travelled to this area in 1873. He took several more trips from 1876- 1910. This is an unmounted and unsigned print.
**Not to be confused with the Loon Lake in Warren County, New York.
