Want to paddle around the pond in a canoe at six in the morning? Go ahead. There's no sign-in sheet, and there are plenty of canoes. How about midnight bowling? Sure, but someone will have to be the pinsetter. Feeling cold from a walk in the woods? Well light a fire in the great room, then, and have some hot...

Exceptional! We are a group of five 65+ year old women kayakers and book authors (Women on Water) who spend a few days each September in the Adirondacks. White Pine Camp - what a find!! How could one not want to stay in Calvin Coolidge's summer White House? The various cottages are clean with all the necessary amenities. You can...

What a place! We stayed in the President's Cottage and slept in the same bed that Calvin Coolidge slept in. Where else can you do that? Late October and there was decent weather and leaf change. Tim Moody, the manager is very accommodating and helpful. The fireplace with endless supply of wood was fantastic. Don't miss this tranquil gem.

My husband and I were in critical need of unplugging and unwinding and so booked 2 nights at the White Pine Camp. From the moment we arrived we were transported--back in time, to a time before cell phones and televisions and the endless pace that is our current life. For two days we explored the grounds (and nearby Saranac Lake),...

White Pine Camp was a great choice for a fall Adirondack getaway. I hope to make this a yearly tradition. Steve and Tim were so kind and helpful from the moment I called to book my stay. We stayed in the Osgood Cottage which is their smallest option. It was perfect especially given all of the choices of historic buildings...

Our stay at WPC was nothing but excellent. We stayed in the Kirkwood cabin during the beginning of September for my dad's 60th birthday. He, and the rest of us, couldn't be more pleased with our stay. WPC is off the beaten path in the northern part of the Adirondacks in the village of Paul Smiths. Expect a very rustic...

We stayed in Cabin II for five nights with our two children (6 and 10). The cabin is nicely appointed and very functional. We used one of the two fireplaces on chilly mornings. The kitchen is small but has all the basics, including a coffee pot (and filters) , toaster, microwave, etc. The only negatives were the lack of water...

From my first conversation with the Innkeeper Tim to the wonderful gentleman (Steve) whom checked us in, it was a great stay. The cabins are done very adirondack style. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The views from the dock, teahouse and boathouses were amazing. The stars in the sky at night surrounding the teahouse were magical. The property...

Excellent tour by a retired Paul Smith's counselor who instilled love of the camp tradition in my friends. My third visit, this tour was by far the best with his rich knowledge of the camp's Owners and guests. A marvelous experience for HighPeaks guests who don't wish to drive farther to Sagamore.

It is hard to describe this place because it will not do justice to how beautiful and private this location actually is. Each cabin is so beautifully renovated and private with spectacular access to Osgood Pond, history, charm, beauty. It is everything you read about in books about cabins in the woods come to life. SO much to do in...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located on beautiful, secluded Osgood Pond, White Pine Camp is one of a small handful of remaining historic Adirondack Great Camps open to the public. Built in 1907 for Archibald White, a New York City banker and industrialist and his wife Olive Moore White, an opera star, the property, which hosted many dignitaries and celebrities over the years, is most noted for having served as the Summer White House for President Calvin Coolidge. White Pine Camp is open year around and in the winter offers incredible cross country skiing and snowshoe opportunities. ... more   less
