Did You Know Shania Twain Has Ties to Upstate, New York?

Did You Know Shania Twain Has Ties to Upstate, New York?

The Wolf - Hudson Valley's New Country | November 30, 2022

Upstate New York is the perfect escape for celebrities. They can easily hide out in the cabin in the woods or throw on a hat and sunglasses and become a local in no time.

We're used to it here in the Hudson Valley, but in the early 90s, it was probably less common. Speaking of which, apparently a country music superstar called the Adirondack's home for a short time.

Country Music Superstar in Upstate New York

Shania Twain announced that she'll be performing at Bethel Woods this summer and all week long we've been giving away tickets to the show. During one of our giveaways, a listener named Melissa called in and said she had a "fun fact" about Shania.

Melissa went on to tell us that Shania Twain actually live in Upstate, New York back in the 90s.

So we did some research and found that Shania apparently lived in the Santa Clara area of New York in Franklin County, near Saranac Lake. So yes, that is definitely considered Upstate New argument there.

Demolishing at Dexter Lake Camp?

According to the Historic Saranac Lake Wiki, Shania and, her husband at the time, Robert "Mutt" Lange moved into a 3,000-acre-foot-four-story mansion in 1994 called Dexter Lake Camp. The Wiki page explains further:

In 1994 the Dexter house was in pristine condition, having been recently restored by the firm of Crawford and Stearns for the previous owners, when it was purchased and demolished the Dexter Lake Camp sales brochure, c. 1994. Courtesy of Mary Hotaling.same year by singer Shania Twain and her husband, Robert "Mutt" Lange, who built a huge, modern house and recording studio on the property. A few years after the new building was constructed, Twain put it on the market.

The Associated Press reported that while Twain and Lange lived in NY they "fought with the Adirondack Park Agency regarding the construction of buildings, including a studio, on the property."

The Future of Shania Twain in New York State

While things might have ended on a sour note with Shania and New York State, the future is positive and bright! Shania will hit the Bethel Woods stage with the Queen of Me Tour on July 3rd, 2023. Tickets go on sale for the general public on Friday, December 2nd at 10 am.
