|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
Camp Kidura is a great destination for families or friends looking for a beautiful escape to relax and explore. With four bedrooms, two lofts and three full baths, this new, luxurious and comfortable Adirondack style home comfortably sleeps 10. Built for entertainment purposes, Camp Kidura has an open, custom-built kitchen (commercially equipped) that opens to the great room where it is hard to miss the spectacular/dramatic views of the lake and mountains through a wall of windows. The kitchen is fully equipped and has granite counters with custom, Douglas fir cabinets.
Two wood burning stoves and radiant floor heat - in addition to the large stone fireplace - are very inviting after a day’s activities. A large wrap around deck on the first level and a second story deck expand the already large living spaces. Immediately adjacent to the water is a stone patio that offers a more natural feel next to a boulder peninsula.

Camp Kidura includes wireless, high-speed internet access (for those that want it), a laundry area with washer and dryer, cable television, linens and housekeeping at the end of your stay provided. It is with great excitement and anticipation that we began our memorable times in the Adirondacks . We have built it for years of family fun and memories in mind. We share our home in hopes of other families creating and sharing memories, like ours, for years to come. Camp Kidura was named after two brothers who, on a slow afternoon at work one day, decided to finally realize their dream Adirondack home after a childhood of only visiting. Welcome and enjoy.

My husband and his brother have wonderful childhood memories of spending their summers on a lake with family. We wanted to create similar memories for our children. Already, our young children tell us - 'Camp Kidura is the best place in the whole wide world!'. They look forward to our visits with great enthusiasm. We enjoy the peaceful setting with lots of outdoor activities. It's great for our family - and we invite you to create your own family memories here too.

We selected the Adirondacks and specifically Upper Saranac Lake because it is a beautiful lake that is large enough to sail, paddle or motor boat - but not crowded or overdeveloped like many other lakes its size. The Adirondacks is a huge park with much to offer. Our location provides a nice mix of activities and scenery without being too remote (grocery store and restaurants are a short drive away).
What a georgeous place. We've been wanting to come for a while and finally made the trip. Thank you for making it work. You made our travel plans easy. We enjoyed the views, the hikes, the surroundings, The Wild Center. The kitchen was easy to use. The rooms were comfortable and beautiful. Nicely decorated. We look forward to coming again other times in the year as well.
Where do we begin! We were a party of 10( 3 families 6 adults and 4 grown children) attending a family wedding at the Wild Center and lucked upon finding Camp Kidura to call home for a long weekend. Home is exactly what it felt like! The moment we walked in the door we were simply in awe! The house is impeccable!! Looks brand new! Stunning views of the Lake! Rooms so inviting and cozy! So many great spaces to hang out for such a large group! Boat house and the deck on top were one of our favorite spots to just hang out! The kitchen is well stocked with all you would need. Bedrooms and bathrooms are so tastefully decorated and comfortable! Love the heated floors!! Such a private location too.... never saw anyone else around us! We can't say enough about Camp Kidura, it was sad to leave but hope to return someday!! Thank you, to the owner Allison as well, your communication throughout booking process and the stay was superb!!
We had such a wonderful week at Camp Kidura! The house was more than we expected, it was absolutely beautiful... The house came with everything we needed. The kitchen is well equipped, sitting areas are comfortable (and plentiful) and the kids were thrilled with the large assortment of games, puzzles and water sports. My husband loved the collection of Adirondack books and maps. The location on the lake is one of the nicest. The boathouse is very nice and we enjoyed the kayaks and canoes. The owners good taste and attention to details is obvious - they have made Camp Kidura a very special place. We are so pleased and lucky to have found this perfect escape! I hope we can come back next year. We highly recommend this lake house.
Lovely house, right on the lake. Great kitchen and dining area as well as comfortable living room and den. Several porches to view the sunrise (or sunset). Nicely decorated. Immaculately clean. High end appliances and well equipped.
Only 2 of the beds were really comfortable. 1 was unusable for an adult. Loft may have been nice but it was too warm up there.
It would be nice to have shades on the windows facing the lake as the sun is intense in the early morning (and wakes you up). Sometimes you just want to sleep in...
Could use better lighting in the smaller bedrooms.
On the whole, one of the nicest rental homes we have stayed in.
We had a great time! The kitchen was very well equipped and the kids (and adults) enjoyed the fishing and kayaking right outside the front door. The location of the property was great. We were close by to great hiking areas, visited the Wild Center (just up the street), explored downtown Lake Saranac and took a day trip to Lake Placid (just a short drive). The only suggestions we had were to have a TV in the downstairs living area and maybe some shades for the front bedroom windows. The views from those windows are spectacular but it would have been nice to have shades for those mornings you didn't want to get up at sunrise. Great trip, beautiful house, would definitely recommend it to anyone!
My husband and I talked about renting a lake house for years, but just never seemed to get around to doing it. This year, we finally got it together and rented Camp Kidura for our family of five for a week in July. It was everything we could have imagined, and more! The home is beautiful and has everything you could possibly need to cook, entertain or just relax. The view is beyond amazing - absolutely stunning and tranquil. Complete serenity. We hiked, canoed, kayaked, fished, swam, played shuffle board and every other board game imaginable with our kids. It was the perfect family vacation and we can't wait to go back!
Our family of 9 had a wonderful time. Someone woke up at 5AM everyday to snap pictures of the sunrise. The camp is as beautiful as the pictures. We enjoyed the swimming and boating and relaxing atmosphere. Everything we needed was there. Would recommend this to anyone.
