Potter’s had the best location around – right at the intersection of Routes 28 and 30. Family members always made a point to stop there for a home-cooked meal. In fact, in 1959 this is where my parents first heard that St. Hubert’s Isle had been put on the market by the Episcopal Diocese of Albany.

When a new Blue Mountain Lake House building burned down in 1904, just the night before the season’s opening, it was not rebuilt. Elmer Potter opened an emergency restaurant on the nearby lakefront site and converted some rough cabins for the displaced guests. For 100 years this operated as Potter’s Cottages.

Potter’s is now a private camp.
