Enjoy a luxurious Adirondack waterfront vacation at Camp Balsam, regally perched along the shoreline of magnificent Lake Placid!  This home offers visitors the ultimate private get-away with unmatched elegance and style, complete with every comfort and amenity you can imagine including an indoor pool, elevator, nature boardwalk, boathouse with massive deck, radiant in-floor heat for chillier months and rarely offered air conditioning for the warmer summer months!

Enter this sprawling property with plenty of parking space and a lovely stone patio welcoming you into a grande foyer. Multiple living rooms are complete with comfortable seating and the gourmet chef's eat-in kitchen has all the appliances and dishware you need to “dine at home”. If you prefer to dine more formally, there is a large table in the spacious dining room and there is both a den and a comfortable bar area that beckons those seeking a little down time. The 4 large bedrooms are all en-suite to offer maximum privacy and comfort all with their own deck access. This lovely home has plenty of space for everyone to gather or to spread out and find a quiet nook to relax.

The pool room with 20 x 40 foot heated indoor pool, hot-tub, changing rooms, lounge chairs and bar area or the fully equipped gym present the perfect workout opportunities and indoor amenities and the sauna is great for a relaxing steam bath. Step outside to an enormous deck off the main living area with multiple seating arrangements, propane firepit, gorgeous lake and mountain views with several porch covered areas from multiple upper floor balconies that offer outdoor comfort in any weather! Head down to the lake on a newly built nature boardwalk and boathouse with massive rooftop deck for enjoing the waterfront and beautiful lake views. Spend time basking in the sun, dining outdoors or indulging in some fun yard games on the sweeping lawn while gazing on the beauty of the lake and mesmerizing evening sunsets. You are sure to want to spend time enjoying all of the many comforts this great retreat offers, but you will also be situated just a few minutes drive away from the center of the Olympic Village with restaurants, public Skating Oval, Arenas, Ski Jumps, Horse Show grounds, restaurants, shopping galore and the Whiteface Mountain Ski Center is only about a 15-20 minute drive away. There are hiking trails and a dam accessed from the Peninsula Road that sit within a short walking distance away from the front door of Camp Balsam along with several more sporting opportunities in the areas surrounding you.

Plan your next vacation in Lake Placid at Camp Balsam nestled in the heart of the Adirondacks among the High Peaks for the vacation of a lifetime!

The house is so large and spread out an elevator is a must. We loved the house and it provided a wonderful setting for our family to gather after experiencing the loss of my husbands father in October. The accommodations were stunning and the owners made it so special with a beautiful tree and decorations!
