Everything as expected!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Camp Owl's nest. House was clean and well appointed. It handled our large crowd (10 adults) with no problems. Andrew was super accommodating. Views from the living room were lovely when it wasn't snowing. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone who wants to spend some time in Lake Placid with a large group. Thank you Andrew for sharing your lovely home with us!!!!

The pictures do not do this home justice. Stunning place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there for a week in July 2017 with five adults and 2 children. Plenty of room for everybody. The screened in porch with fireplace was our gathering spot most mornings and nights. It has every amenity that you could ask for. You seriously just need to bring your toothbrush. We will be back.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 14 stayed at Camp Owl's Nest for a week in July, 2016. This beautiful home was equipped with everything we needed. We were pleasantly surprised to find cleaning supplies and basic food items, i.e., salt/pepper, spices, oils, and even coffee were on hand when we arrived. The outside deck and screened in porch with fireplace were our favorite spots and we really appreciated that firewood for the fireplace was supplied. The place was spotless. With two complete kitchens, towels, soaps, etc., all we really needed to bring was our food and clothing! We made use of the Whiteface Resort membership and played golf almost everyday. That was a huge perk. The course is fabulous and beautiful and we never had a problem booking a tee time. Thanks to Andrew and Bonnie for providing us with a fabulous stay! We hope to book again.
