Default Where did you get your Adirondack Chairs?

Mine have bit the dust and need to be replaced. Where did you get yours and what material would you recommend? I do NOT want molded plastic

If I could afford them, I'd buy the Trex ones without a question.

I recommend the composite material. I purchased mine from the hearth store next to HK in Laconia

There are a few places in the Lakes Region that sell the composite ones which I would also recommend. Two places on 104 between 93 and Meredith. I have seen some wooden ones on Union Ave coming from Belmont into Laconia. We bought ours from the stove place near HK Power Sports.

Default chairs

I have six of the trex like material from Country Cottage on 104 in Meredith. We've had them about 5 years now. Heavy duty, large, heavy and I power wash them every year and they look like new. I have all white chairs but one of my friends bought dark gray. They get a bit warm on a sunny summer day.

Funny! The OP specified that he did not want the molded plastic chairs and all the posts are about how good they are.

I agree! My next set when I get tired of refinishing the wood ones will be the molded plastic. Costco has some nice ones. Two for $279.99.

From his post I thought he was referring to the cheap bendable PVC type which are molded. I. D.o.n.t consider the composite molded because they are screwed together

Exactly. To compare, we find the wrought iron swivel rockers more comfortable. Years old, but I think they came from Lowe's. $175? We also have resin Adirondacks from Lowe's. $25? Comfortable enough, but not long lasting.

We have two that we got there a few years ago and plan to get some more. Very sturdy and comfortable. They are near the shore on the windward side of Welch and are heavy enough to never get blown over.

Default Make 'em yourself?

Over the past winter I have enjoyed making them myself, from red cedar. Two with natural finish, two painted white.

Default LL Bean a good choice

We got our chairs from LL Bean after being dissatisfied with how the ones from Plow and Hearth aged poorly. So far, the LL Bean chairs (made partially out of recycled plastic milk bottles) have held up very well (three years). They run about $225 unless you get them on sale (watch for their occasional 20% off sale). They are way better than the cheap $25 chairs and far more comfortable.

Walmart has some very comfy Adirondack style, sit back chairs, made from resin that can be left outdoors forever, in blue, gray, or black for about $12.94.

Perfect for attaching to two oldie moldy water skis and creating a water skiing, Adirondack chair that automatically gets you to sit back when the boat starts to pull you up.

oh well ..... you usually get what you pay for ...... for some real nice Adirondack chairs, made with better materials and design ..... you probably don't go to Walmart ..... it's your money and your choice ...... it usually pays to shop around ..... best,

We bought a set of folding Adirondack chairs, ottomans, and tables last year from an outfit in Iowa - Amish Made Poly. Simple minimal assembly, great quality, and you can custom-order color combinations. This year they have an Adirondack chair with a slide-out ottoman.

I buy the cheap $20 ones for down at the waterfront and just stack them when we leave on Sundays. My kids bought me 4 wooden ones for the around the fire pit at the house. I think they were $100 each. I'm not sure what kind of wood it is but it's not pine. I had some teak oil left from an old boat that had teak wood and gave them a once over.

Thumbs up

Was at Costco's last night and saw white PVC Adirondack chairs for $129.00, great deal! I think the same ones on line at Costco's are $179.00.
