Dating to 1907, the incredible White Pine Camp was originally developed as summer homes for the wealthy — known as “camps” in the Adirondacks region — overlooking Osgood Pond. It passed through many hands, including President Coolidge; White Pine Camp even served as the summer White House for the President and his family. (Rumor has it that the President spent more time fishing than his executive duties during his time here!)
These days, White Pine Camp is a nod to the past, with perfectly rustic and impossibly cozy lodging overlooking Osgood Pond. 13 distinctive cabins and cottages feature soaring roof lines, hand-built Adirondack style furniture, stone fireplaces or wood stoves, and breathtaking views. Trails through the property are perfect for leisurely strolls, while swimming, fishing, and boating on Osgood Pond lets guests take in the serenity of the Adirondacks just steps from their cabin’s door.
All guests have unlimited access to shared facilities at White Pine Camp: including a Great Room, equipped with WiFi; a Japanese Tea House on a tiny island accessed by a 300-foot wooden bridge; hand-set bowling alley and pool room; a boat house with kayaks, canoes and rowboats for guest use; and many outdoor decks and patios.
This authentic Adirondack experience is also one of the few affordable ones in the area. Rooms range from $165-435 nightly, or make a week of it with their discounted weekly rates. Part of our forthcoming guide to the Saranac Lake Region of the Adirondacks.
