Why Lisa Lawyer chose Mirror Lake

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.

Perfect Ironman rental

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for Ironman 70.3 weekend. There were 10 adults in the house and we never felt crowded. The location is perfect for racers and spectators. You can walk to check in, transition, and most importantly, swim start. If we ever do this race again I won't hesitate to book this property.

1st class location in Lake Placid. A lot to offer

  • 4 of 5

My impression is favorable. In terms of recommendations I would recommend a new stove and a new refrigerator would add an awful lot to this rental property. We have spent two years there with four families and have enjoyed it immensely.

Amazing Location!

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a place to watch the sun rise across Mirror Lake, jump in for a swim in the calm cool water, spend time with your family, grill and enjoy the large deck , sunset kayak with Whiteface Mountain in front of you, then this is the home for you! Camp Awesome was the perfect location for our group of 4 adults and 6 kids (ages 6-15) for all of this and more. This home is very convenient to everything yet private for your group. We enjoyed walks into town to explore, shop, get ice cream, rent SUP's, or go for a wine tasting. The large updated family room/dining area has floor to ceiling views of the lake and opens up to a beautiful big deck with awning and an oversized table to fit your whole group. We found the deck and family room to be perfect for enjoying a cup of coffee, reading a book, relaxing and playing games with the family, or even watching a summer storm roll in and marveling at the rainbow chasing it away.

There are 3 large bedrooms upstairs with a lot of closet space where the family could spread out. The in-law suite was a nice size with a futon in the sitting room and conveniently had a kitchenette. Passer-bys could sometimes be heard right outside of this room due to the hotel located next door, but all in all, the home is in a quiet location (although the upstairs and stairs are quite squeaky). The kitchen is small but functional with everything you need for a big group with plenty of flatware, cutlery (knives were very dull), pots and pans, etc...Our teens enjoyed the bedroom and space in the basement to have their own hang out and to use the 3 kayaks and sauna whenever they wanted. If we had any recommendations, it would be for a little TLC to make Camp Awesome even more wonderful! We really enjoyed the location and peacefulness of this home and would definitely recommend it!

Camp Awesome Spring Golf

  • 4 of 5

Our group of 12 had a great stay at Camp Awesome! So convenient to downtown and the golf courses. Would have been a 5 star rating except for one thing. At that price point, it would be a nice addition to have an outdoor hot tub. There is plenty of space at ground level off the back door.
