Perhaps a renovation is in order but as judge by the photos this is better off torn down. I do not know if a make over is possible? If it is then this will be work!!! A lot of work!!! Loading... Reply What happened to this place? most of the things can still be renovated. Is the owner still alive or is this place totally abandoned? Loading... Reply I really thought this place wouldn’t be worth renovating. Even in one of the pictures, the ceiling of the house has created an unpleasant sight for me. Loading... Reply Beautiful view, too bad that the place is in very bad conditions and can’t be restored. Loading... Reply The house looks so unkept and abandoned. But am pretty sure if given a renovations touches will come to be a modern house. Loading... Reply Definitely a lodge in shambles. I love how the art of disarray catches your eye. Loading... Reply I will never get enough of your urban exploration photos. Seeing the world through your lens is delightful. Loading... Reply Yet another abandoned lodge. I wonder what ill fate befell this one. Loading... Reply This lodge is worth restoring. It’s a monumental part of history. Loading... Reply It’s a surprise that the lodge is still standing. It was definitely very sturdily built. Loading... Reply God forbid a fire catches this old lodge. It would be razed to the ground. Loading... Reply I can tell from the photos that the Aiden Lair Lodge has a rich history. Thank you so much for documenting this. Loading... Reply It will be a lot of work to fix it. The atmosphere around the house seemed very uncomfortable to live in. Loading... Reply This abandoned lodge would make a great set for a horror movie. The eerie nature is perfect for that. Loading... Reply I think I have heard of Aiden Lair before. It was such a long time ago though. Loading... Reply You should compile of the photos of run down buildings you have taken before. That would be awesome! Loading... Reply This is the perfect show of what entropy does. Nature does like disorder. Loading... Reply Through your work I am able to visit places I never thought I could see. This is very much appreciated. Loading... Reply Looks old and over used as usual. When once wear and tear sets in. A once nice place must look damaged. Loading... Reply Any of the oldtimer’s in Minerva and Olmsteadville, can furnish information about Aiden Lair. It is an historic building. My family and I have visited many times while vacationing nearby. During the 60’s and 70’s although starting to become run down, there was furniture and magazines that could be seen glancing through the windows. the architecture of the building is wonderful. Over the years much of the building has been vandalized. Some people have no pride or conscience, that is sad. During the 90’s I visited the owner who lived on Balfour Lake. He may still be alive, can not remember his name. There was a bronze plack describing Teddy Roosevelt’s stop over at Aiden Lodge on his way to Northcreek. President McKinley had been assassinated and Roosevelt became President. Loading... Reply Thank you for your comment, Richard. For the record, I visit and photograph histrionic properties for the purposes of preservation. I don’t touch anything, and I never vandalize or steal anything. My sole purpose there is documentation. Loading... Reply Tom, my post was only to pass on information about Aiden Lair. I never intended for you to assume I was pointing to you committing vandalism. I admire all sorts of architecture. Since I have seen Aiden Lair when it was still intact during my first visit during the 1960’s, it’s very sad to see it now. Loading... Reply Agree, I would love to have seen this and many other historic locations preserved. Unfortunately, abandonment has become a very common approach in recent decades. Although I am not a vandal, many of the locations I have come across have been relatively saved from vandals simply by keeping their locations private. Unfortunately, Aiden Lair Lodge is on a main road and has fallen victim to vandals on an ongoing basis. Loading... Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
