  • Our Cabin is next door to this wonderful place. We love to hear the church bells ring on the hour. An Adirondack Treasure.  more »
  • A multipurpose historic building. The Covey structure is a must see. Tours, services and lectures all take place during the summer. A pie and craft sale is a big attraction. Parking across Big Moose....  more »
  • If you're in the Central Adirondack Park, Sunday morning at Big Moose Community Chapel is about as rich an ADK experience one could have. This historic stone chapel on Big Moose Rd/Big Moose Lake, is a haven of harmony, hospitality, fellowship and communing with God and nature.
  • My bride and I had our wedding ceremony here! The location and the chapel are both beautiful and we couldn't have asked for better support from the chapel staff for our big day.
