About Bobbie Clopine

We have been coming to Lake Placid for years and owned a condo just outside of town. A few years ago the perfect house became available and we jumped at the chance to buy a house in town on the lake. We love outdoor activities and think Lake Placid offers the best opportunity on the East Coast to enjoy it year round. In summer Lake Placid offers hiking, swimming, kayaking, golf, cycling and just about anything else you can think of. The fall brings leaf season with brilliant colors. Winter has all the winter activities you can imagine. We come to Lake Placid every chance we get and the opportunity to get away from hustle and bustle and enjoy the Adirondacks as a family is one we are lucky to have.

Bobbie Clopine purchased this house in 2012

Why Bobbie Clopine 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.

My husband and I and 4 other couples rented this place and thoroughly enjoyed it. The property is great and the location is perfect. Don't worry about the fact that the place is in the center of a busy town and next door to a hotel; neither is a problem. When you're on the back deck looking out over the lake, it seems you are in a very private place. The water is clear and beautiful. The views are great. Convenience to shopping and restaurants is fantastic. One word of caution. If you're coming here to fish, get your license in advance as it proved very difficult to get in town.

First off, thanks to the Clopine Family for allowing us to stay at their beautiful home. From the moment we walked in we knew we picked the right spot. We went up for a bachelor party for the weekend and it was literally the perfect place. We had so much space, so many bathrooms, the house was immaculate, the view was fantastic, somehow still private even being on the popular Mirror Lake. All the fun lake toys like SUP, kayaks, tandems, etc. We came first week in June and we still were able to go jumping in the lake off the dock, little chilly but nice and refreshing! As we were on a bachelor party the proximity to town and all the bars and restaurants was icing on the cake. Lake Placid is definitely a hike from NYC but this trip was well worth the haul. Thanks again!

Great family friendly location to enjoy all of Lake Placid

  • 5 of 5

This is the best location to access all of Lake Placid region. Earns it's name "Camp Awesome" Ice skating and hockey on Mirror Lake is just out the back door. Whiteface Mountain skiing was great with the additional benefit of the shuttle to the mountain just up the block which allowed for individual scheduling . The fireplace area was perfect for family games after a day of fun. Downtown was just out the door with great shops and restaurants but you always felt like you were staying in a very private setting.

Plenty of baths and beds for a family group. An unqualified recommendation!

Perfect Location, Ideal for all ages, Ammenities Galore

  • 5 of 5

This prpoerty was immaculate. It came stocked with everything we needed from kitchen utensils to a high chair for my grandson and a Christmas tree with lights!

Very roomy, we were 9 adults and one toddler, with all the ammenities you need for a relaxing holiday vacation. Sauna was a bonus.

The location was perfect, walking distance to town and we took many walks around Mirror Lake.

No snow for skiing, but we took the kyacks out on Christmas, and it was fabulous.

I would recommend this property and hope to be repeat renters in the future. Everything was great!

Thank you Camp Awesome!
