Camp Owl's Nest at Whiteface Club and Resort on Lake Placid

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.

Nothing beats this property in Lake Placid. It's an adirondack dream come true. The house is professionally decorated and it has every amenity. It is also peaceful and has an incredible view. Town is a few minutes away. Loved it!!

getaway in the woods

  • 5 of 5

Plenty of room in this home, everyone loved the rustic style blended with 2 great kitchens and 3 bathrooms. Lots of privacy at this location, but still just a few minutes from groceries & town.

This is a beautiful home,we had 8 adults staying there for my daughter's destination wedding at the lodge.The home is equipped with everything you need. The dual kitchens made entertaining family and friends a breeze. Not only is it equipped with everything that you need, but it also offers a unique Adirondak touch. Each room of this home has been tastefully decorated to perfectly fit the region. We really enjoyed the screened in porch area on the deck. It is the perfect place for coffee and conversation with loved ones. The sleeping accomodations are ideal for a larger group/family, there is plenty of room for everyone. Although the Lake Placid area has that "tourist" feel to it, this home provided a great escape for those looking for some tranquility and a break from the hustle and bustle of the daily grind.

This house was perfectly kept and provided amazing access to town. Lake Placid Lodge was also amazing place, its right around the corner from the house. We had 5 couples which can be often hard to accommodate when each couple would like privacy. This house was perfect, everyone had their own room, we utilized the loft as the 5th bedroom and it worked out very well. The loft also had a second bed that could be used for guest as well as the one of the bedrooms in the basement, 2 queens I believed. We spent most of our time upstairs and only utilized the main fireplace but that was all we need but the second full kitchen and family room would be perfect for families with teens. Can't go wrong with this place! Only drawback no hot tub, but we knew that going in so it was no issue just something that would be nice to have after a day of riding at Whiteface which was only a twenty minute drive from the house.

Perfect house in every way

  • 5 of 5

Every detail of this amazing house is Adirondack perfection. We had two families and it was perfect. Two indoor fireplaces and one outside with cozy chairs in the screened porch. Kids can hang downstairs or up in the loft. Close to town. Amazing views of Lake Placid.
