Located in the heart of the High Peaks area of the Adirondacks, on the northern end of beautiful Schroon Lake, the Terra Alta Cottage Colony has been a summer vacation destination for families from New York, Montreal and beyond for over 75 years. Time at Terra Alta brings back memories of summers spent with family as part of a real community. Owned and managed by three generations of the Starfield family (with a fourth on the way), Terra Alta, while offering all modern conveniences and amenities, is a throwback to a simpler and friendlier kind of summer vacation.

The Lake at Dawn


Guests at Terra Alta take advantage of our wonderful and varied onsite facilities and activities. We are located just outside the historic and picturesque village of Schroon Lake; the town provides visitors with many other activities and services. We are also just a short distance away from the heart of the High Peaks and Lake Placid, as well as from the family fun of the Lake George area and the excitement of Saratoga. Terra Alta has it all!
