Why Lisa Lawyer chose Lake Placid

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.

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.

Team Natty's 2017

  • 5 of 5

Not the best weekend for pond hockey, but Camp Awesome once again lived up to its name. Great location, more than comfortable atmosphere for father and son teams of 6 to have a great time between hockey games. One of the most repeated things all week was this &$#@ing door. Door to deck very tough to close again. Looking to book as early as possible for next year!

Perfect Location

  • 4 of 5

This house is very LOUD. From any room you stay in (with the exception of the mother-in-law apartment) you can hear EVERYTHING that's happening on the main floor. So if you are traveling with some elderly guests or a baby, I would recommend a different house. Also, the basement was very uncomfortable for the guests that had to stay down there- no door separating where that area begins and the open laundry area. Shower and bathroom are separate in the basement, which was also unfavorable...

The kayaks were awesome, having a wet bar and outdoor seating was a huge plus. Internet was fast and unfussy. Clean. Relatively quiet location even though we were right on Main St. Would definitely stay here again with a smaller group- i.e. no one having to stay in the basement (and without the baby and whiny old folks!).

PS- Do not park overnight in the municipal lot across the street on Sunday nights. Although it is not posted it is a $25 ticket!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. We hope that you had a wonderful wedding in our home. You are the 5th couple to be married at Camp Awesome. We love the opportunity to share our home for special occasions and appreciate that you chose our house for yours. So sorry to hear that it seemed noisy in the house, that is the first time that we have heard that. We wish you both all the best in the future!

Our home is located on Main Street in downtown Lake Placid. It is lakefront with a private dock and amazing lake and mountain views. Location is private but still just steps from all the amenities of downtown. The house is in a perfect location close to all the attractions of the Adirondacks. 4 kayaks (1 of them seats 2 people) are included for guests to use during their stay.
