Introducing Scoop Neck Tees and Unisex Tanks — FIND OUT MORE

“One who not merely beholds the outward shows of things, but catches a glimpse of the soul that looks out of them, whose garment and revelation they are-if he be such, I say, he will stand, for more than a moment, speechless with something akin to that which made the morning stars sing together.”
~George MacDonald

Original photograph of small cottage on an island in the midst of a remote lake taken in Glen Spey, New York, USA, circa late 1800’s.
This cottage and lake are a part of the old George MacKenzie estate, long time president of the Singer Sewing Machine Corporation. It resides across from the historical markers of the estate which is now a restaurant, along with the mansion just down the road.
FYI…the property and mansion have more than once called in Ghost Hunters, due to numerous reports that the dwellings were other worldly haunted. Public tours are available through the estate, known as the Burn Brae Manor, Glen Spey, NY, USA

    This is such a lovely capture, romantic and intriguing! Very interesting information also! You have made me want to visit this spot! It certainly looks like a place that could be haunted.

  • I called to go there on a tour…very restrictive and the prices are very high for what one gets! I will go back though and try to snoop from the surrounding woodlands! LOL!
