VICTORIAN COTTAGES & HOMES ~Round Lake, NY



Came across this link ( below) ...thought you would all enjoy them.

Round Lake, NY. Round Lake was established in 1867 as a camp for Methodist laymen and ministers. Inticed by the dense Pine woods, natural spring waters, and convenient train service, the campgrounds grew into a permanent town. Like other Methodist camps, small cottages were eventually erected, mostly in an ornate Carpenter Gothic manner. The village today boasts many intact examples of Victorian architecture, ranging from small cottages, to large ornate examples complete with turrets, sleeping porches, and stained glass.

Oh my goodness Rose. I know that house. I have friends that live in the village of Round Lake. It is just so quaint. A lot of the cottages from the old Methodist camp have been converted into year round homes. The house you are showing can be seen from Route 9.
