White Tail Run is a year round residence ideally located on the shores of Oseetah Lake, just minutes from downtown Lake Placid or the Village of Saranac Lake. The Lake is surrounded by mountains and offers some of the best fishing and boating in the Adirondacks.
The camp is a new 3-story year round home, with 4 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths, laundry facilities, gourmet kitchen, large dining area, and a great room with cathedral ceilings. A large stone, gas-fired fireplace adorns the great room. The large deck, which is attached to the front of the house facing the lake, is a favorite spot for late afternoon gatherings. The home also features an enclosed porch with beautiful lake and mountain views. Access to the property is by private road which is maintained on a year round basis. Travel by automobile to the Village of Saranac Lake or Lake Placid is about 15 minutes either way.ESPN choose Oseetah Lake as one of the fishing site during the Great Outdoor Games. The lake is also home to a wide variety of bird life including Loons, Great Blue Herons and Bald Eagles. The summer issue of Life Magazine stated that Oseetah Lake is the best vantage point for viewing eagles in the Adirondacks. The lake is connected to four other lakes in the Saranac Chain all of which are accessible by boat, canoe or Kayak. These lakes include Middle & Lower Saranac, Kiwassa and Lake Flower. A boat launch is available just down the road from the camp. During the summer a private swimming area is also available nearby.
Summer months offer hikers and climbers of all levels some of the most challenging and beautiful terrain in North America. Golf enthusiasts will find some of the finest championship caliber golf course in and around the area. The area is a virtual paradise for all to enjoy the great outdoors. In the winter time, the frozen lake is ideal for cross country skiing and snowmobiling. Whiteface Mountain, site of the 1980 Olympics, and ranked Number 1 in the East by Ski Magazine is a 25 minutes drive.

About Sue Lounsbury
My husband and I just purchased this beautiful home from a lovely couple who built it as their dream home. This is not your typical vacation rental but a home away from home. The gourmet kitchen and attention to detail is what you would expect of a private home
Sue Lounsbury purchased this House in 2014
Why Sue Lounsbury chose Saranac Lake
We have been coming to the Adirondacks and the Lake Placid Region for 10 plus years
What makes this House unique
Every morning we awake to the most beauitful views of the wetlands , Oseetah Lake and Mountains. Our 2 mile private dirt road offers the best of both worlds, peace and quiet, yet minutes away from the village of Lake Placid and Saranac Lake.

Warm, welcoming and wonderful home for a family ski vacation.
From the moment you walk in, this large home makes you feel at home. From the privacy, view, Adirondack furniture and architectural details this home is a great getaway, even for an extended family of 12! Lots of room for all. All that plus proximity to great skiing and the charming towns of Saranac Lake and Lake Placid make White Tail Run a great place for a family ski vacation. And after skiing the home is very well supplied with a large array of board and table games to occupy kids of all ages. The gourmet kitchen allows you to comfortably feed everyone, or there are great restaurants and shopping located only a few minutes drive away in town. The Owners make you feel most welcome and take care of the details. A great place for a family vacation. Would love to see it in the summer as I’m sure it would be just as wonderful.
Thanks so much John,
We certainly hope you consider returning in the summer!

Beautiful Adirondack home on scenic Oseetah Lake
We loved this home! It was beautifully decorated in our favorite Adirondack style, very spacious, well equipped, super comfortable, had nice views and is situated in a scenic, woodsy neighborhood surrounding Oseetah Lake. It is "5 stars" hands down!! We were thrilled to happen on this rental and thoroughly enjoyed our time there!! Thanks so very much for sharing your home, Sue and Bruce!

Debbie and Bill,
Thanks so much for the very kind review. I hope you were able to find the ice cleats under the bench to help out with the icy conditions!
Please keep us in mind for the future,
Sue and Bruce
We stayed for 3 nights over New Year's, and had a wonderful stay at Whitetail Run! I have stayed in many Adirondack houses, and this was probably my favorite of all of them. The layout is perfect, and the design is everything you look for in an upscale ADK home. High quality, rustic-style Adirondack furniture, beautiful mountain/lake views, a great kitchen, open floor plans, beautiful bathrooms and high end bedding were all on point. There are so many amenities available (Wii, crokinole, shuffleboard, foosball and more board games than you can count) that I couldnt believe it. Do yourself a favor and book this home, just not for the weekend that I am considering :) !!!
We are so glad you have a wonderful new years despite the very cold weather. We certainly look forward to your return

Absolutely stunning. An unforgettable family holiday
Our second time celebrating Christmas at White Tail Run and what a truly spectacular winter wonderland we were treated to! Sue and Bruce, your home is like living within an image of a beautiful postcard; tranquil, quite and mesmerising. Your home is complete with everything you could need and more. The decor, right down to the dinner set reminds you of just how beautiful the Adirondack mountains are. A perfect home to relax and warm up in after a full days skiing. We can’t wait to come back and explore the region more and stay at your home again.
