If the headline above sounds good, then The Waldheim is for you. It's been in the same family for 5 generations I believe and it's a series of 17 cabins situated on Big Moose Lake in the Adirondacks. It's everything an Adirondack vacation should be. Our cabin was a two minute walk from a beachfront area of the lake (where... More

It is impossible to describe how beautiful this camp is. Every cabin is quaint and cozy. The views are amazing, the sounds of loons and owls haunting and soothing at once. This is an all inclusive camp, which is something we don't usually do, but it was worth every cent. One of the amazing staff members walks through the camp... More

My parents and grandparents and I began staying at the Waldheim in 1957 when I was 5. My father chose Longview cottage because it is situated on North Bay, a very quiet and peaceful bit of heaven on Big Moose Lake. Gradually, we began booking Cedar Lodge because it had a very long, private dock and a little bit of... More

The Waldheim cabins in the wood are run by the fourth generation Martin family and likely will be for a fifth generation. They have been providing a tranquil respite for families since 1903. Lodgers who have come to know and love the Waldheim almost don't want others to discover it's beauty. No TV, phones, or, heavens forbid cell coverage. However,... More

We stayed at the Waldheim in late September 2014; when the fall foliage tends to peak. In fact, most of September is a very good time to experience the Adirondack's fall foliage ... the Waldheim closes for the season around Columbus Day, when the foliage is almost all down. We find some of the area restaurants close, or limit their... More

In today's over-hyped vacation market, the Waldheim is one of those increasingly rare destinations that have refused to go along with the crowd. I suspect that staying at the venerable Waldheim today is little different from it was in the early 1900's..... rustic Adirondack wood cottages that have not changed in decades (except for electricity). Heated by stone fireplaces, creaking... More

This was our first visit to The Waldheim. Interactions while making the reservations were prompt and pleasant. Information was provided about cabins that were available to assist in the decision making and the website is user friendly and informative. I was worried about the food quality and portions but quickly discovered there was not cause for concern. The dinner menu... More

We've taken family vacations at The Waldheim for ten years. This year, my husband and I went as a couple to celebrate our anniversary. It never ceases to amaze me that this place stays the same year after year. That's something to celebrate. From the wood fireplace being lit for you every morning to the excellent food and service --... More

We just returned from our first visit to The Waldheim. We had to cut our stay short due to a family emergency and are already reminiscing about it. The Whipsaw cabin sits right on the lake and has the most magnificent view. Get up early and see the sunrise - it's unbelievable. The staff members were like family - Sarah... More
