The Sagamore – Over 100 Years of Luxury on Lake George

The Sagamore Resort’s illustrious history began over one hundred years ago when hotel operator Myron O. Brown was inspired to build an exclusive resort community in the Adirondacks with luxurious Lake George accommodations. The Sagamore opened its doors in 1883 with luxurious Lake George accommodations that attracted a select, international clientele, and quickly became the social epicenter for residents of Green Island. Twice damaged by fire in 1893 and 1914, The Sagamore was fully reconstructed in 1930.

In 1983, one hundred years after the opening of the first Sagamore, builder and real estate developer Norman Wolgin, of Philadelphia, purchased the hotel with the desire to restore its former grandeur. Wolgin formed a partnership under the name Green Island Associates with Kennington Ltd., Inc. of Los Angeles, to oversee the hotel’s splendid restoration and secure The Sagamore’s inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places.

Today, The Sagamore continues the legacy first envisioned by Myron O. Brown, inviting guests to experience the unmatched beauty of the Adirondacks with luxurious Lake George accommodations, extraordinary dining, an award-winning spa and endless opportunities to enjoy our magnificent surroundings.

The area surrounding The Sagamore is rich in history. As early as 1642 the land was explored by the French who named the lake "Lac Du Saint Sacrement" in honor of the Catholic sacrament of the Eucharist. Fighting among the French, British and native population occurred in the lake region during the French and Indian War, and is recorded by James Fennimore Cooper in The Last of The Mohicans. After the final British victory the lake was renamed for King George II. Lake George and Bolton Landing are within the borders of the six million acre New York Adirondack State Park, created in 1892.
