In a word - Amazing

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here two years in a row and it was like paradise. Words cannot describe how incredibly this camp is. Need a break from every day stress, this place is it. You just never want to leave and no other place on earth is quite like this property. It is so clean and has everything you could ever need.
From the second you drive down the driveway and catch a glimpse of Lake Placid in your backyard, you know you have arrived.
The porch is one of the biggest I have ever seen and the view is breath taking, you just have take pictures constantly and still feel like you haven't done it justice.
The house is massive and fully equipped with everything.
The common rooms are spectacular and jaw dropping, the bedrooms are beyond charming. Just when think you have seen everything, walk from your back porch onto the park like grounds down to the boat house and be prepared to be blown away.
I truly love this place and hope to be back again real soon.
