SPECTACULAR CONTEMPORARY ADIRONDACK LAKEFRONT CAMP

Paradox Lake Estate Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Loft + Office, Sleeps 12

Camp Pair-o'Docks is a private family retreat located on Paradox Lake in the heart of the Adirondacks.

Built in the tradition of the Adirondack Great Camps, but with a modern interpretation, the house sits at the end of a two mile road on 320 acres of private land. Camp Pair-o'Docks offers complete privacy, comfort, natural and architectural beauty, and a wide variety of outdoor activities year-round.

The Home:

The 4800 square foot home, designed by the owner along with award winning architect Kurt Lavenson AIA, offers a contemporary interpretation of traditional Adirondack architectural style. Large windows throughout the house make the home bright and allow all rooms to take advantage of the spectacular views.

The heart of the home is a large central pavilion that contains the living, dining and kitchen spaces. It is supported by a massive stone column with a fire place at its base and exposed trusses that extend diagonally out to its corners.

Introduction: Camp Pair-o’Docks is a private family retreat located on Paradox Lake in the heart of the Adirondacks.

Built in the tradition of the Adirondack Great Camps, but with a modern interpretation, the house sits at the end of a two mile road on 320 acres of private land. Camp Pair-o’ Docks offers complete privacy, comfort, natural and architectural beauty, and a wide variety of outdoor activities year-round.

The property boasts over half a mile of lake frontage including a large sandy beach, a 'pair of docks' spaced 50 meters apart with a lane line for swimmers, and a large boat dock that can accommodate several boats.

The property has several miles of trails through the woods for hiking and cross country skiing.

The House: The 4800 square foot home, designed by the owner and award winning architect Kurt Lavenson AIA, offers a contemporary interpretation of traditional Adirondack architectural style. Large windows throughout the house make the home bright and allow all rooms to take advantage of the spectacular views.

The heart of the home is a large central pavilion that contains the living, dining and kitchen spaces. It is supported by a massive stone column with a fire place at its base and exposed trusses that extend diagonally out to its corners. All rooms feature large picture windows with views of the lake, private beach and property. The kitchen is fully outfitted for a chef, with granite countertops, All-Clad cookware, DCS gas range, Bosch dishwasher, and a La Cimbale commercial espresso machine. A large screen porch provides ample room for entertaining and includes a ping-pong table.

Paradox Lake: Paradox Lake is one of the jewels of the Adirondacks, known for its clean water, natural beauty and wildlife and great fishing. The 3.5 mile long lake is large enough to allow for all forms of water activities but also small enough to offer peace and tranquility.

The Adirondacks:

The Adirondack Park is the largest state park in the country, comprising some 6.1 million acres, including 2.3 million acres of forever wild Forest Preserve and wilderness. The majestic Adirondack Mountains are contained within the park, along with thousands of pristine lakes, streams, farms, and towns. Celebrated by mountaineers, skiers, tourists, artists and poets alike, the Adirondacks offers something for everyone throughout the seasons

Camp Pair-o?Docks is ideally located and easily accessible throughout the year and is in close proximity to the high peaks, Lake Placid, Whiteface Mountain, Lake George, Gore Mountain, and Vermont.

A PERFECT WINTER FAMILY RETREAT!

  • 5 of 5
I'll start by saying that our family has stayed at Camp Pair-o'Docks three times now. Two years in a row over the Christmas holidays and once just this past February. We have been a bit selfish in not writing a review because we kind of want to keep it our little secret. However we feel that we should really share it with others since it is such a beautiful spot. Since we have only experienced this cottage in the winter my review will be based on winter occupancy.
I'm going to keep it pretty simple, this place is terrific! The location on Lake Paradox is lovely. The chalet is very impressive. We had 12 people staying at the house over the Christmas holidays and it has more than enough room to host a large group. It is immaculately kept, everything seems brand new including sheets, towels and kitchen items. There is no "roughing it" here, you definitely feel like you are at a Five Star resort. Because it was during the winter we enjoyed the large fireplace ( with unlimited wood available for use), the radiant floors that heat the house and the large picture windows that overlook the beautiful lake. We were lucky enough to skate on the lake since it had frozen over, a real treat for the grown-ups and the kids. The property is large and surrounded by a forested area which is great for walks. It's about a 10 minute drive to the small town of Schroon Lake where you find conveniences like the grocery store and liquor store. We also made the 45 minute drive to Lake Placid to enjoy the speed skating oval and lovely restaurants.
As far as communications with the owner, it has only been a pleasure. He has been so accommodating to our requests-the most recent being when we called him only 2 days before we wanted to rent. He was able to prepare the house for us at the last minute, without sacrificing the high standards that we have been used to the past times we have visited.
Overall we would love to come back year after year and enjoy it with our family. We would also like to experience it during the summer months and hope we can arrange that soon. We look forward to our next visit!
