A Basin Harbor History Moment: In 1909 Pennie and Bob’s grandfather, Allen Penfield Beach, designed Basin Harbor’s Adirondack chairs. The first slatback Adirondack Chair was developed in 1885 in Westport, New York (just across the lake) and no doubt served as an inspiration. We hope you will relax in your favorite Adirondack chair in your own special place. Or make a configuration of a few chairs or many, for family and friends and newfound acquaintances to contemplate the view. You can even ship one home, or find a smaller version in the Breezeway Store to tuck in your bags.
