The most camp-like of the Saranac summer homes is Calumet, which is owned by George W. Seligman and Mrs. Theodore Helman, his sister. It consists of a group of shingle cottages with rustic verandas against the foot of which the lake ripples. An enormous rock juts into the lake at this point and furnishes the front yard of the camp. It is the fashion at Calumet to line the living rooms of the camp with balsam boughs, and guests there feel that they really are in the woods.
