This simple cabin is the only Bartok residence in the United States that is open to the public. His son has said that Bartok loved the cabin because it reminded him of the simple abodes of Hungarian peasants. The cabin is managed by Historic Saranac Lake and can be visited by appointment -- -----. Bartok rented the cabin in the summer of 1945, just before his death in that year. Despite his ill health, he composed his Third Piano Concerto and the Viola Concerto here in the little corner beside the fireplace. For further information, see www.historicsaranaclake.org.
