About the Property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Welcome to Camp Kreil!

Reserve now for summer of 2017. Available dates go fast on this Lakeside residence!. Enjoy the convenience of being in the Village coupled with the privacy of being right on Mirror Lake! Early winter this year, great snow and the Lake is freezing! Step right outside the door, hope on your cross country skis and enjoy skiing around the Lake or take a tour and enjoy skiing on the golf courses located on the other side of the Lake!


Nestled within a grove of birch, beech and maple trees sits a rare vacation home in Lake Placid. An extra special treat for Ironman competitors and their family as it is situated in the middle of the swimming race course on the Village side of the Lake.

On the shores of beautiful Mirror Lake and located in the middle of the Olympic Village of Lake Placid, this 3 bedroom home provides it all... swim beach, pristine mountain lake, views of the high peaks including Whiteface Mt., sailboats and kayaks for summer play, 2 docks as well as creature comforts including Hot Tub, TV's, 3 Complete bedrooms, Jacuzzi tub in Master Bath, Wireless Internet, stereo with CD or plug in your IPod, dining room, living room and patio table with umbrella!

Fully furnished with all linen, towels and even spices and condiments stocked ahead to start you out!

In the winter, step outside your door and slip on some cross country skis and take a tour around Mirror Lake stopping by the renowned 'Cottage' at the Mirror Lake Inn. Cross Country skis are available on site as well as some boots. While you're located only steps away from all of Lake Placid's shops and restaurants you'll enjoy the privacy and quiet that this unique setting offers. You feel as though you're in the middle of the woods or your own private island! SORRY, WINTER 2014 IS ALREADY BOOKED OUT.

This home is part of a historic building that is also owned by the condo owner containing 8 other condo's and apartments although they are all situated on other levels and are not connected in any way to this owner's condo and do not have access to the private waterfront.

Enjoy the Bavarian knick-knacks that are complimented with scenes of skiing and golf. Owned by Ed Kreil, the Director of Whiteface Mt.'s Adult Ski School for many years as well as being a certified PGA Golf Teaching Pro, this home will feel like your home with its comfort and setting.

Your well behaved, trained dog is welcomed at Camp Kreil. We're sorry but we can't allow cats due to potential allergy problems.

Plan to reserve ahead of time as the best dates will go fast on this vacation condo!

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1999

About: I've been Ski School Director for Whiteface Mt. for many years as well as PGA Teaching Pro. For many years, my wife and I ran Goldberries Restaurant on Main Street in Lake Placid. In addition to skiing, I love kite boarding, roller blading, traveling and enjoyable times with friends and family! Lake Placid is a fantastic town for everything you might like to do....recreating in the outdoors, great dining, name it, we've got it!

Why Mirror Lake (Lake Placid, NY, USA):
Great town as it's a destination resort community having served as an Olympic site twice in its history. Lake Placid is still an Olympic training center and is host to a wide variety of sporting events.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
I like to be able to walk out of my bedroom, into the hot tub and then another 15 yards or so to my beach and the Lake. A great way to start the morning with a nice swim and again at night! My beach and docks are private to this vacation property only. I always keep a sailboat tied up for my renters to use as they like as well as having a couple of kayaks all set to go as well. Every Wed and Thursday in the summer you can take a kayak about 5 minutes down the Lake and enjoy a concert going on from the bandshell on the shores of Mirror Lake. It's a great way to enjoy and recreate without having to get in a car and drive!
