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...

My first time in upstate New York and it was worthwhile! While the only internet was in the main cabin (and on the fritz) the scenery and activities more than made up for being isolated! There are canoes, kayaks, and a swimming area when it is warm. The bowling alley is fun (however, do not take a toddler! Group games...

Our stay at White Pine Camp was wonderful! We stayed here for 2 nights in the middle of an 11 day trip through the Finger Lakes, the Adirondacks, and then into Canada and this was by far our favorite place! Our cabin - Mrs. Otis - was beautifully decorated and comfortable. The grounds of this great camp include a boat...

If you want to visit a "great camp" in the Adirondacks, this is one of the classics. It has a lake, lots of black flies and other bugs, nice cabins, and old time diversions such as a 2 lane bowling alley, pool table, table tennis, tennis courts, etc. Be prepared to either prepare your own food or leave the property...

New York is so much more than the "city". If you want to get away, the Adirondacks are a great place. White Pine camp has so much to offer, yet so simple. We stayed in Longfellow plus Osgood and it was perfect for 2 couples. The cabin was well stocked with everything you need, unless you want lots of people...

We stayed in Mrs. Coolidges cabin, it was warm and inviting, the perfect Adirondack decor. I would highly recommend it. We went with friends and the cabin was perfect for 4. There is no tv or phone, but it did have spotty cell service and wifi in the lodge area. Our cabin had plenty of games, two fireplaces and the...

Our daughter goes to Paul Smith's College and passed the sign several times. Never thought anything about it until I stumbled upon the link through a Saranac Lake site. Boy am I glad I did. Our cabin was for 7 people and there was more than enough room. It was rustic but had most of the comforts of home, it...

Beautiful property with wonderful staff. Our cabin was comfortable and well equipped. Loved everything about it! Visit Paul Smiths college while you are there. Plenty of places to hike and enjoy wildlife.

I'd been told about this place by a friend but she didn't do it justice. It's everything you would hope for in a rustic getaway. We stayed in the President's cabin. Crazy to think we stayed where President Coolidge stayed. This cabin was a wee bit noisy as it adjoins Mrs Coolidge's. I'm glad we stayed here as it's nice...

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
