We are a family that lives in Westchester County, New York. We are multi-generation Adirondackers who know the area well, have a deep devotion and love for the communities and nature in the Park. We take a very personal interest in helping our guests enjoy the Adirondacks as we do.
Dan Papes purchased this House in 2012
This property is a classic Adirondack home. We have built it with pride and quality, from the mattresses you sleep on to the equipment in the kitchen to the technology throughout the house.
The house is very privately located, and is an easy 1/2 mile drive from the main road on a flat and maintained access road. While very private, it is also an easy drive to 3 different towns, including the wonderful village of Lake Placid.
The Wild Center
The Wild Center, formerly known as the Natural History Museum of the Adirondacks, is a natural history center in Tupper Lake, New York, near the center of New York state's Adirondack Park.
In 1850 the Pomeroy Lumber Company began a logging operation in the area. A clearing left by clear-cutting the forest by Raquette Pond became the site of the village of Tupper Lake.
The Adirondack Sky Center
The Hirsch Observatory is an astronomical observatory at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) in Troy, New York. It is located on the roof of the Jonsson-Rowland Science Center
Mount Arab, sometimes known as Arab Mountain, is a mountain located in the town of Piercefield, New York, in the northern part of the Adirondack Mountain Range.
Little Wolf Pond
Wolf Pond is located north of Stillwater, New York. Fish species present in the lake are brook trout, brown bullhead, and sunfish.
Camp Eagle Island
>Camp Eagle Island, also known as Eagle Island Camp or simply EIC, was a resident summer camp located on Eagle Island in Upper Saranac Lake in New York’s Adirondack region.
You can easily tell the owners made a lot of effort to ensure an unforgettable experience. This is not just a rental, it has an unique style with superb amenities.
Stayed for 4 nights during negative overnight temperatures and the heated floors along with solid insulation made a real difference.
We decided to choose a well stocked, well furnished property to relax after a whole day at a Whiteface, despite slightly longer driving time from Lake Placid. Rather be an extra 25 min on a scenic road and have a great evening time with our group, than choose an average property nearby Whiteface.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful house with our large group!
We have stayed here 2x now over the past few years. The house is clean, organized and up to date with everything we need and extremely private for hosting our family. Each year we have been more pleased with the property and the ongoing enhancements, such as the pontoon boat available to rent which we took advantage of this year. What we love most is the ability for the home to accommodate our large family, and the location with the beautiful convenience of the lake being right there. We are looking forward to making more memories with our family again next year!
We take a family vacation each year -- three generations, with ages from 5 to 72. We like to go to parts of the country we have never visited before, so Camp Eastwood and the Adirondacks were a first for us. The deck provides a breath taking view of the lake and is a great place to relax with a good book. We enjoyed all the outside activities available on site -- canoeing, kayaking, swimming, fishing, hiking. Games and movies occupied us inside on the two rainy days. We took day trips to Lake Placid and the Olympic sites and to the Wild Center in Tupper Lake for a spectacular view of the Adirondacks. Miniature golf outside Lake Placid was also a big hit with the kids.
The house was fantastic; the 15 of us never felt crowded and we were able to have dinner together at the large dining room table. It had all the amenities to make our stay comfortable and memorable. The owners and the caretaker, Eric, were great to work with. We hated to leave.
Highly recommend Camp Eastwood!
Our family decided to get together for a week this summer in honor of our parents. All of their 4 children, all of their grandchildren, and great grandchildren stayed at some point during the week. What a beautiful home and surroundings! We enjoyed nightly camp fires, huge meals together, hikes, kayaking-no one was bored! My brother brought his boat so the kids loved the lake! Some of us climbed a mountain! We could not have asked for better accommodations and the owners were great! Thank you for sharing your home!
Beautiful and spacious home with everything we could ask for, beautiful area, very little boat traffic, and all ages enjoyed their time at Camp Eastwood for our week's visit. This is our 3rd Summer in a row at this great home and we are booked again for next Summer as well : )
