About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Camp Kidura is a great destination for families or friends looking for a beautiful escape to relax and explore. With four bedrooms, two lofts and three full baths, this new, luxurious and comfortable Adirondack style home comfortably sleeps 10. Built for entertainment purposes, Camp Kidura has an open, custom-built kitchen (commercially equipped) that opens to the great room where it is hard to miss the spectacular/dramatic views of the lake and mountains through a wall of windows. The kitchen is fully equipped and has granite counters with custom, Douglas fir cabinets.

Two wood burning stoves and radiant floor heat - in addition to the large stone fireplace - are very inviting after a day’s activities. A large wrap around deck on the first level and a second story deck expand the already large living spaces. Immediately adjacent to the water is a stone patio that offers a more natural feel next to a boulder peninsula.


• Panther Mountain hike – a scenic 1.6 mile round trip hike with spectacular views.
• The new 'Wild Center', the Natural History Museum of the Adirondacks is just minutes away.
• A leisurely canoe ride can take you to local destinations on Upper Saranac Lake such as the Wawbeek Hotel and Restaurant and Chapel Island.
• Olympic Village of Lake Placid and Whiteface Mountain are about 30-40 minutes away.
• Historic town of Saranac Lake is a short, 10 - 15 minute drive.
• The Visitor Interpretation Center at Paul Smith’s College is also a short drive.
• The Adirondack Museum is about 45 minutes to an hour away providing a rich and interactive way to learn about the rugged and therapeutic history of this vast state park.

Camp Kidura includes wireless, high-speed internet access (for those that want it), a laundry area with washer and dryer, cable television, linens and housekeeping at the end of your stay provided. It is with great excitement and anticipation that we began our memorable times in the Adirondacks . We have built it for years of family fun and memories in mind. We share our home in hopes of other families creating and sharing memories, like ours, for years to come. Camp Kidura was named after two brothers who, on a slow afternoon at work one day, decided to finally realize their dream Adirondack home after a childhood of only visiting. Welcome and enjoy.

Located on the southern end of majestic Upper Saranac Lake in the Adirondacks State Park, Camp Kidura is part of one of the historic Great Camps of the Adirondacks. It is a new, custom timber frame home.

It is located just feet from the water with a private swimming area, dock, and signature boulder over the water. Camp Kidura also has rights to a communal beach/picnic area, fire pit and boat launch. Nearby activities are endless… fishing, world-famous fly-fishing, canoeing, kayaking, white water rafting, boating, sailing, and swimming right off the docks. Shopping boutiques and novelty shops in Saranac Lake and Lake Placid can offer a break from the outdoors for those who wish.

Other Activities: So many things to do year round?

Summer/Fall: boating, swimming, paddle on one of our canoes or kayaks, rent a motor boat, hike one of the many trails, or even tackle on of the 46ers (46 high peak mountains in the Adirondacks).

Winter: Skiing, Cross-Country Skiing, Snowboarding, Snowshoeing, Ice Skating.

Golf: A The nearest golf is only 15 minutes away at Saranac Inn Country Club on the northern end of Upper Saranac Lake offers golfing nearby. It offers 18 hole course, rentals and a driving range. It 'has a reputation as one of the most carefully maintained and challenging resort courses in the northeast.' Length: 6,631 yards | Par: 72 | Rating: 71.5 | Slope: 128

There are also some options in Lake Placid.

Ski: Home to two Winter Olympics, the famous Whiteface Mountain near Lake Placid is about 35 miles away - great for novice to expert skiers. There is also skiing on Big Tupper (10 miles in nearby Tupper Lake) or Mt. Pisgah (15 miles away in nearby Saranac Lake). In addition to downhill skiing, there are numerous other winter activities such as cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, horseback riding, ice skating, luge, bobsled, etc.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: My husband and his brother have wonderful childhood memories of spending their summers on a lake with family. We wanted to create similar memories for our children. Already, our young children tell us - 'Camp Kidura is the best place in the whole wide world!'. They look forward to our visits with great enthusiasm. We enjoy the peaceful setting with lots of outdoor activities. It's great for our family - and we invite you to create your own family memories here too.

Why the Owner Chose Tupper Lake, New York, United States of America:
We selected the Adirondacks and specifically Upper Saranac Lake because it is a beautiful lake that is large enough to sail, paddle or motor boat - but not crowded or overdeveloped like many other lakes its size. The Adirondacks is a huge park with much to offer. Our location provides a nice mix of activities and scenery without being too remote (grocery store and restaurants are a short drive away).
