About Dave Webb

The Holderied family purchased Camp Sunnycove in 1996 and fell so in love with the property they built a house not far away. The family owns the Golden Arrow Lakeside Resort right in town, so they know about hospitality and how to plan the perfect vacation.

Why Dave Webb chose Adirondack Mountains

Being at Camp Sunnycove makes you feel like you are the only people on the peninsula, that the woods, the lake, the dream belongs to only you.

What makes this house unique

You can enjoy the benefits of the Village of Lake Placid but have a place to call all your own.

A Great Lakehouse

  • 5 of 5

I typically do not take the time to write reviews but after having just stayed at camp Sunny Cove I feel compelled to. This is everything you could want in a lake house at Lake Placid. Clean, well appointed and plenty of room, not to mention the beautiful boathouse deck and all the lake 'toys' like multiple paddle boards, kayak's, canoes, etc. Its amazing that you are only 2 miles from mainstreet with all the great restaurants and shopping yet when you are at Sunnycove it is quiet and peaceful with unbelievable views of the lake and the surrounding mountains. This rental will not disappoint.

Perfect Lake Lodge

  • 5 of 5

Sunny Cove is the perfect Lake Placid vacation lodge. Bring your own boat to explore the lake and go fishing or do some wake boarding. Nested in a little cove with wonder full sunset views. The Boathouse is the perfect place to enjoy the views. The house is spacious and well appointed. Kitchen has all you need to cook your family dinners. Can't wait to book it again for next season.

We had the perfect experience at Camp Sunnycove. The camp is situated in a quiet spot on the lake, but easily accessible to everything in town. Our group of 14 had a wonderful week celebrating an important wedding anniversary, and we are glad we chose Camp Sunnycove. From the boating to the sun deck to the amazing firepit, it was the ultimate Adirondack experience. The owners are extremely responsive, and very eager to make the vacation enjoyable for everyone.

Loved Camp Sunnycove!

  • 5 of 5

We will definitely come again next year. Great location and great space with comfy bedrooms and wonderful,kitchen and sun deck! Protected cove minimized the wind and we enjoyed all the wAter toys and bonfire pit.

Only suggestions for improvement would be more flatware as house did not come with enough for the # people we had. Also a 2nd refrigerator for keeping beverages cool would be a great addition.

Owner's Response: Glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Camp Sunny Cove. We will pick up some more flatware this week and get it out there for future guests. Also, a second refrigerator is a great suggestion for enjoying a cold beverage on the boathouse rooftop deck. I don't know why we didn't think of that... We will look for a spot in the house that can accommodate a second refrigerator and look to make that happen in the near future. Thanks again and enjoy the rest of the summer.

Wonderful family vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Camp Sunny Cove was clean, well equipped and in a beautiful location. It comfortably accommodated 10 adults and 6 teens, with ages ranging from 14 to 91. The owners were pleasant and very responsive to our inquiries. There was large lawn for games and the fire pit was a great place to gather after dinner. We rented a motorboat for rides and tubing, kayaked and paddle boarded with the equipment provided, hiked the nearby trails and spent time reading, catching up and enjoying both the sunshine and the view on the dock and boathouse deck. Camp Sunny Cove was a great place for our family vacation!

Camp Sunny Cove is a great Adirondack camp directly on the shores of Lake Placid Lake. It is location at the very tip of Brewster Peninsula provides incredible privacy and stillness, yet the amenities of Lake Placid are only 3 miles away. Escape with your family & friends to a rustic hide-away where you can camp out, roast marshmallows, swim in pristine waters and just relax. For the active vacationer there are miles of great trails for walking or running right from the camp. SunnyCove is a great base camp if you want to bag a few 46ers while you are in the Adirondacks. It also has a great boat house with an amazing sun deck and a private boat slip for your use, swimming dock and much more for your family to enjoy.
