Adirondak Loj is a historic lodge near Lake Placid in the Adirondack Mountains of New York State. The Loj, built in 1927, is currently owned and operated by the Adirondack Mountain Club. Located on the shore of Heart Lake, it is at the trailhead of the most popular trails to Mount Marcy and Algonquin Peak, the two highest peaks in the Adirondacks (and the state as well). Accommodations are in the form of private rooms and bunkrooms, and meals are available as well. There are also campsites at the Loj, as well as Lean-to's and very large canvas tents.
The original Adirondack Loj was designed by Henry Van Hoevenberg for whom Mount Van Hoevenberg is named; it opened in 1890, but was consumed in a catastrophic fire that swept Essex County on June 3, 1903. It was replaced by the present structure, designed by Saranac Lake architect William G. Distin, in 1927.
