Get a taste of the Gilded Age version of “roughing it” at the great Adirondack wilderness estate once owned by the Vanderbilts. Built in 1897 and called “the most architecturally sophisticated and influential of Adirondack camps,” Sagamore’s 27 historic buildings nestle among trees on pristine Sagamore Lake. With its magnificent stone and timber architecture, this treasure has earned a National Historic Landmark designation, and is today managed by a non-profit as a public trust. Sagamore’s remote deep woods setting invites Road Scholars to go “off the grid” for learning, relaxation and camaraderie.
