Adirondack chairs grew on me slowly starting as a youth of five or six years old at summer camp in upstate New York. I was from a family that did not use them. They seemed strange to me. even looked less than comfortable. Well my camping experience was great and I returned to that small private lake 20 miles distant from Lake George for the next 10 years.
I first sat in one at the canteen closed to picnic tables, park benches and playground equipment where we queued up to buy our treat of the week. Then I came to use these great New England Classics at the "Nature Shack" where kindly knowledgeable Counselor Sholee let me into some of the mysteries of animal life and human life too!
By the time I was an adult, I knew that any place and time I needed a rest, It was best accomplished in an Adirondack! And now-a-days the choices of materials and variety of subtle different styles and types is amazing. My family and friends agree, Adirondack Chairs are GREAT.
