My husband and I and my cousin and his wife added Camp Bearberry recently planned a trip to Cooperstown and decided to add some time in the mountains of New York to our itinerary. What a great decision! Camp Bearberry was the perfect spot to kick back for a few days and enjoy the view of the lake, playing checkers by the roaring fire, and watching the leaves turn splendid colors. We had a day of rainy, cold weather, and what could have been more perfect than watching the fog slip across the lake and the sun rise the next morning explains the words "Mirror Lake." The house is great, especially if you like traditional Adirondack furnishings. The owners obviously love the house, and it is filled with special collections and original art. The house from the lakefront (shown in the photo) is charming, and well kept. It is not hard to imagine "campers" running up and down the stairs and playing on the lawn that stretches down to the water. The kitchen worked well for us, the dining room is one of my favorite rooms (BEYOND charming!), and in spite of the cold outside the house was very comfortable. Location is extremely convenient to pop in and out of Lake Placid, which is FULL of great restaurants and cute shops. There are other houses around the property (it isn't set off all by itself) but the Camp has plenty of "private space." The drive up to Whiteface Mountain was gorgeous with the Fall leaves. The owner was particularly helpful in recommending places to eat and things to do (we loved lunch at The Cottage and dinner at the nearby Pub at Lake Placid Lodge). We loved seeing the rink where "Miracle on Ice" occurred! We would love to go back in the summer when we really enjoy the lake itself, perhaps starting in Montreal and driving down; however, flying out of Albany was a breeze, and the drive from Lake Placid down was just over 2 hours and a great foliage tour. Many thanks to Kathie S for all of her assistance! Camp Bearberry will always be special for all of us!
