The Skinny: We considered this Adirondack Great Camp for Friday's lake house round-up, until we noticed that the only body of fresh water on the premises is a brackish pond that looks more like a bog than a water way. Still, The Uplands deserves attention for its adherence to a bygone lifestyle. The compound, built in 1909, consists of several wood-frame buildings connected by porches. Only one of the houses, the 1922 "South House," has been winterized, while the originals have the rustic look of uninsulated plank walls. The owner, who has been visiting the property for 69 years, is asking $1.95M for the rustic, remote escape, located almost five hours from NYC.
