Property description

Camp Bequantas Is A True Adirondack Gem That Our Family Is Excited To Share With The Public For The First Time. Constructed 95 Years Ago In The Traditional Adirondack Great Camp Style, There Are Two Large Common Areas- The Kitchen And Dining Cottage, And The Main Lodge. These Are Surrounded By Several Private Cottages. This Allows For Large Groups To Be Together, But Affords Privacy As Well.
There Is A Large Main Lodge, 'old Crow', Which Sleeps Six In Two Private Bedrooms. It Includes A Large Living Room, Gorgeous Field Stone Fire Place (handcrafted From Stones Gathered On The Property), And Spacious Screened Porch In Porch With Phenomenal Mountain Views. The Cabin Has A Full Bath With Outdoor Shower And Antique Fixtures. A Washer And Dryer Come In Handy For Extended Stays.
'crow Feast' Is The Spacious Kitchen And Dining Cabin. A Swiss Chalet Inspired Design, This Cabin Features 2 Large Dining Tables, A Full Kitchen, Huge Stone Fireplace, And Indoor Charcoal Barbecue. The Dining Room Has Large Picture Windows That Allow Breathtaking Views Of The Cascade Range. The Windows Themselves Were Saved From The Original Lake Placid Club Building. Another Dining Option Is To Move The Tables Outside To The Spacious Stone Patio And Enjoy The Fresh Air.
'crow Deluxe', Also Known As The Honeymoon Suite, Is A Charming Private Cottage That Sleeps Two. It Features A Double Bed, Private Bath With Antique Fixtures, A Sitting Area, Field Stone Fireplace, And Private Porch With Views Of The Great Range.
'little Crow' Is The 'newest' Cabin On The Property. It Was Lovingly Re-purposed From Two 95 Year Old Cabins By The Owner And A Local Artist. Your Guests Are Sure To Squabble Over Who Stays Here.- The Cabin Is Absolutely Charming And Features A Queen Sized Bed, A Child's Pullout Bed, Sitting Area, Private Porch, And Private Full Bath With Antique Fixtures.
'sister Crow' Is A Cute Little Bunkhouse Style Cabin In The Center Of The Compound That Sleeps Three. It Features A Twin Bed And Set Of Bunk Beds. This Has Traditionally Been A Favorite Of Children In Our Family, As They Feel Special To 'camp Out In Their Own Cabin', But Safe In The Knowledge That Mom And Dad Are Only A Few Feet Away.
For The Adventurous Members Of Your Party There Is A Lean-to (an Adirondack Tradition, A Three Sided Building For Camping In). This Sleeps 4 But Bring Your Sleeping Bags.
The Camp Is Located In The Heart Of The Adirondack High Peaks Region And Is Perfect For The Outdoor Adventurer. Hiking, Fishing, And Boating Are All Within Minutes Of The Camp. Whether You’re In Search Of Action And Adventure, Or Just A Quiet Place To Read And Reflect, Bequantas Is Your Spot! The Local Hamlets Of Keene And Keene Valley Offer Fabulous Shopping And Dining Options. Just Up The Road Is The Village Of Lake Placid- A World Class Vacation Destination. Home To The 1932 And 1980 Winter Olympics, The Village And Surrounding Area Offer A Wide Variety Of Activities, Shopping, And Dining.
Your Hosts Are Able To Provide Advice On All Aspects Of Your Vacation. We Can Recommend Guide Services And Offer Private Chef Service And Catering For Special Events By Simply Gourmet Of Lake Placid. Simply Gourmet Has Been Featured In Magazines Like “new York Times”, “adirondack Life”, And “gourmet Magazine”. The Property Is Well Suited For Weddings, Corporate Retreats, And Family Reunions.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1944

About: My Grandfather and Grandmother purchased the property as a summer home. Our friends and family have cherished it ever since. Jake and Erica Burns act as your hosts on behalf of our entire family. Our family is committed to stewardship of the land and is vested in the community. Originally from Syracuse, my mother and sister relocated here full time 10 years ago. Mom rekindled a childhood romance formed here on the mountain in the 60's and she, my stepfather, and sister founded three successful restaurant businesses in Lake Placid- Simply Gourmet, Big Mountain Deli and Creperie, and the 'dack Shack. A short time later my brother joined the team, and last year Erica and I came on board. It gives us all great pleasure to contribute to the local economy providing jobs and fresh, delicious food to our customers.

Why Keene, NY, USA:
Camp Bequantas is our families 'Tara' (pardon the Gone With The Wind reference, but I couldnt help it). It is a treasured member of our family that words can't quite describe. It has been a place to celebrate, share with friends, and occasionally circle the wagons. We are excited for others to share this special place, and have priced it aggressively. There is no comparable property on VRBO and at $35 per person per night, no better value.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
I'm fairly certain we've said it all. Give us a call we'd love to have you!!
