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.

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.

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 owner chose Tupper Lake
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).
Local Services & Businesses
Sports & Adventure Activities
Camp Kidura is absolutely beyond wonderful! I brought some friends up to the ADKs to introduce them to the area for the weekend and we had a a lovely time. We came with all sort of plans for weekend activities but the house was so inviting that we somehow managed to not leave it for our entire stay! It's cozy, clean, and very well laid out. I highly highly recommend and am so glad we have an excuse to come back!
Beautiful Home with Amazing Views of the Lake!
Just returned home from a great stay over President’s Day weekend at Camp Kidura. Great home with plenty of room for the whole group. Great views of the frozen lake. Kids had lots of fun playing on the lake. Hoping to return in the Summer to enjoy all the House has to offer during that season.
Tranquility on the lake
Camp Kidura is fantastic! The home itself is beautifully built. Inside is nicely and comfortably furnished. The kitchen has every gadget you could possibly need. The camp is right on the water and I highly recommend spending time on the boat house deck. Easy trips to Lake Placid and Whiteface Mountain. In the evening the call of the loons is an Adirondack lullaby. If you're looking for a place to sit back and unwind this camp should be at the top of your list.
Overall very nice!
We had a lovely time staying at this home with our family. The water and the view were beautiful. The kitchen was well stocked and the house was very clean upon arrival! The large boathouse/deck was great for hanging out by the water with our large family and for docking the boat we rented for the week. Allison was great to work with, as were all the caretakers of the home we met throughout the week! Our only complaints were the beds/linens were not very comfortable, the close proximity to the neighbors, and the outside furniture was not very comfortable and some of it was falling apart. Some loungers and newer chairs would have been great to sit out and enjoy the water. Also, there was no large tv in the main house for everyone to sit around at night and watch. Overall we had a wonderful time with our family enjoying beautiful Upper Saranac Lake!
Everything you could ask for: from helpful caretaker, responsive owner to perfect location and exceptional stocked kitchen.
We did not have the best weather. But we did not mind it at all. The home and people are wonderful.
The home was everything the owner portrayed. Allison was easy to work with.
We had a great time. We were greeted with pastries on our arrival. The views were amazing!! Lots of room for us to gather or spread out. Everything worked well and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Homeowner was very helpful with lots of information to make our stay more enjoyable. I would recommend the house.
