About the Property

House, 7 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 14-18)

I have owned this wonderful property since 1985. It is a work in progress. At one time it was owned by the New York Central Railroad then it was operated as a music camp from 1940 to 1963. The original property had about 14 buildings. Some of the best fishing in New York State can be had off of our 20 by 20 dock as well as sunbathing and relaxing. The large veranda has rocking chairs and hammocks as well as the best views on Lake Placid, bar none. On the second floor there is a balcony which is great for morning coffee or stargazing. There is a 24 by 16 screened in rear porch has a second kitchen with major burners for large cooking and a additional dining area. The great room consists of four large picture windows living room with wood stove, den and dining room. This property is BOAT ACCESS ONLY as most properties on Lake Placid are. We provide an outboard motor boat with the rental. The property is on the West Shore of Lake Placid and is about a five to ten minute boat ride from the marina or you can choose to walk the lake trail about 2.5 miles.
The house is fully equipped all you need is fresh food and a desire to relax. In 1995 I moved some log cabins to the property and reassembled them into a 1500 square foot guest
cabin which is available if you feel you may need it. It will sleep 6 to 8. There is a bocci ball court on the property and we have croquette and many other games and activities available. There are many marked trails in the area and guide services are available.
You can call for additional pictures and information call 212 924 6899 or 917 501 4711.
I could go on for a hour about the ammenities of this place but in closing I can say I cannot remember how many times I have been told that this Camp is the most relaxing place that they have ever been to.


~ a very special place ~

If you are planning a family reunion, or a vacation getaway with a group of friends, Camp Undercliff on the West Shore of Lake Placid is the perfect location for you.

Camp Undercliff was originally built in 1879 in the classic Adirondack Great Camp style. This very special house is situated on a point with 240 degree unobstructed views of the Lake, Whiteface Mountain and the high peaks of the Adirondacks. You can also enjoy the views from a second floor balcony.

The house has undergone extensive renovation and upgrading over the years, and now has all the modern conveniences you would expect. Access is by boat only, and a gas-powered boat is included with any rental. The boat will take you back and forth to the town, or just enjoy cruising and fishing on the Lake

The house has seven bedrooms and three full baths. Two of the bedrooms have queen size beds, two have king size beds (that can be s

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1985

About the owner: My wife and myself live in NYC and spend as much time as we can in Lake PLacid

Why the Owner Chose Lake Placid, NY, USA:
After spending most of my youth in the adirondacks I spent time visiting some friends on Lake Placid and knew this was the only place within five hour of NYC that seemed like being in a different universe. The clean drinkable water and prestine forests are amongst the only place on earth like this.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
RELAXATION, special vistas, contentment as well a being close to nature in a rustic comfortable place with all the modern convienances slipped in. This area is also the training center of the USA Olympic Teams.
