Whiteface Club: GOLF & TENNIS (within short walking distance)

Ranked #6 in New York State by Golf Weekly — March, 2005

Experience the beauty and challenge of one of this Country’s oldest golf courses, steeped in over 100 years of rich history. Originally built in 1898, the course was redesigned by noted architect, John Van Kleek, who benefited from the consultation of World Champion Walter Hagen.

With the Adirondack Mountains and pristine Lake Placid as its backdrop, the artistically designed course offers novices and pros alike a rewarding day. Its trademark clover leaf designed greens and bunkers illustrate the meticulous attention to details the architect provided.

The Whiteface Club & Resort golf house and pro shop offer a wide variety of quality golfing products. Join us on the covered deck overlooking the putting green and first hole for a casual lunch or beverage, or one of a variety of golf tournaments.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Another wonderful experience at Camp Bearberry. All the amenities of home plus scenic Lake Placid as our backdrop. The porch was the family focal point and everyone commented on the cosiness of the beds. For a few of us, this was our second enjoyable trip. Thanks again, Camp Bearberry.

A very special place to unwind

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I and my cousin and his wife added Camp Bearberry recently planned a trip to Cooperstown and decided to add some time in the mountains of New York to our itinerary. What a great decision! Camp Bearberry was the perfect spot to kick back for a few days and enjoy the view of the lake, playing checkers by the roaring fire, and watching the leaves turn splendid colors. We had a day of rainy, cold weather, and what could have been more perfect than watching the fog slip across the lake and the sun rise the next morning explains the words "Mirror Lake." The house is great, especially if you like traditional Adirondack furnishings. The owners obviously love the house, and it is filled with special collections and original art. The house from the lakefront (shown in the photo) is charming, and well kept. It is not hard to imagine "campers" running up and down the stairs and playing on the lawn that stretches down to the water. The kitchen worked well for us, the dining room is one of my favorite rooms (BEYOND charming!), and in spite of the cold outside the house was very comfortable. Location is extremely convenient to pop in and out of Lake Placid, which is FULL of great restaurants and cute shops. There are other houses around the property (it isn't set off all by itself) but the Camp has plenty of "private space." The drive up to Whiteface Mountain was gorgeous with the Fall leaves. The owner was particularly helpful in recommending places to eat and things to do (we loved lunch at The Cottage and dinner at the nearby Pub at Lake Placid Lodge). We loved seeing the rink where "Miracle on Ice" occurred! We would love to go back in the summer when we really enjoy the lake itself, perhaps starting in Montreal and driving down; however, flying out of Albany was a breeze, and the drive from Lake Placid down was just over 2 hours and a great foliage tour. Many thanks to Kathie S for all of her assistance! Camp Bearberry will always be special for all of us!

Perfect Rental for a Whiteface Club Wedding

  • 5 of 5
My family rented Camp Bearberry for a week before and during our daughter's wedding at the Whiteface Club and Resort. The house, its location and accommodations could not have been more perfect for the occasion. The house is located on the shore of Lake Placid. We loved swimming off the dock; the wedding party photos on the lawn were gorgeous; the groomsmen walked from the house to the wedding garden; and the parents walked home after the wedding at the Whiteface Club. The house provides ample space for group gatherings in the living room, dining room, and lovely screened porch, and a nicely-appointed bathroom for every bedroom (critical for a wedding!). The house is beautifully furnished with interesting Adirondack antiques, and is well-furnished for cooking and entertaining. Owners Kathie and Gary Smith were wonderfully welcoming, and so helpful. We totally loved our stay at Camp Bearberry!
