Beach Gallery and Beach Lodge are designed to resemble an Adirondack camp. Named for William and Marie Beach, longtime hunting companions of Electra and J. Watson Webb, the log buildings were constructed on-site using timber from Nehasane, the Webb's 50,000-acre northern New York preserve.

Today, Beach Lodge exhibits hunting trophies, woodcarvings, and Adirondack-inspired furniture.
