Why Lisa Lawyer chose Lake Placid

The location is perfect (That's where the name Camp Awesome came from:). We like to swim, fish and kayak. You can do all of this right off the dock. The house is on Mirror Lake right in downtown Lake Placid and while quiet and private it is only steps from all the restaurants and shopping on Main Street. The home provides the opportunity to be as active or relaxed as you want if you just enjoy the lake and the view.

What makes this house unique

The view and the location are most unique. From inside the living room or on the large deck you can enjoy the view of Mirror Lake and views of Whiteface Mountain. You can start your day with coffee and the sunrise and finish with a glass of wine on the dock.

Team Natty's 2017

  • 5 of 5

Not the best weekend for pond hockey, but Camp Awesome once again lived up to its name. Great location, more than comfortable atmosphere for father and son teams of 6 to have a great time between hockey games. One of the most repeated things all week was this &$#@ing door. Door to deck very tough to close again. Looking to book as early as possible for next year!

Perfect Location

  • 4 of 5

This house is very LOUD. From any room you stay in (with the exception of the mother-in-law apartment) you can hear EVERYTHING that's happening on the main floor. So if you are traveling with some elderly guests or a baby, I would recommend a different house. Also, the basement was very uncomfortable for the guests that had to stay down there- no door separating where that area begins and the open laundry area. Shower and bathroom are separate in the basement, which was also unfavorable...

The kayaks were awesome, having a wet bar and outdoor seating was a huge plus. Internet was fast and unfussy. Clean. Relatively quiet location even though we were right on Main St. Would definitely stay here again with a smaller group- i.e. no one having to stay in the basement (and without the baby and whiny old folks!).

PS- Do not park overnight in the municipal lot across the street on Sunday nights. Although it is not posted it is a $25 ticket!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. We hope that you had a wonderful wedding in our home. You are the 5th couple to be married at Camp Awesome. We love the opportunity to share our home for special occasions and appreciate that you chose our house for yours. So sorry to hear that it seemed noisy in the house, that is the first time that we have heard that. We wish you both all the best in the future!

Best of both worlds!

  • 5 of 5

Camp Awesome is true to it's name and was an amazing location for a weekend getaway with the guys. Easy access to the water & plenty of kayaks for everyone. Also right in the middle of downtown for easy walking to restaurants, bars & shopping. Lastly, less than 10 minute drive to a variety of great hiking, you really can't beat it. Next time I'll bring the family!

Great house

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Camp Awesome! The house is well appointed and in a great location. Even though the house is right in town, we barely left - everything we needed was there. Our son loved swimming in the water right off the dock and the adults definitely took advantage of the kayaks and sauna. Having a bedroom on the first floor was absolutely great- we put the baby and toddler in there for naps and could still hear them. The house is reasonably toddler/baby proof, so I would definitely recommend it for young families. We also had two seniors with us, who loved the location and amenities- so great for them too!

Terrific Family Venue!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year renting this property and we love the lay-out for our family. Enough bedrooms and bathrooms without being in eachother's space. The location and view cannot be better. You can enjoy the view of Mirror Lake and Whiteface from the deck and then be in the center of town with a quick walk up the driveway. We are renting again next summer!
