Originally Mr. Rockefeller's study, Algonquin, set along a private corridor off the Great Hall, is a warm, handsome room paneled with butterscotch walls and lined with floor-to-ceiling in bookshelves filled with a collection of antique books. Rockefeller's specially commissioned map of Upper Saranac Lake hangs above the wood-burning stone fireplace, revealing the curves and secret hiding places on the lake.
A queen-size bed is flanked by brass reading lamps. A bank of leaded windows, and an elegant desk stocked with letterhead and pens encourages guests to put thoughts to paper.
In the bathroom, a clawfoot tub stands beside a remarkable shower that thunders down like a rainstorm.
A private door leads outside to the front terrace or down the wooded slope to the lake.
