Welcome to Camp Kreil!

Reserve now for spring and summer of 2018. Available dates go fast on this Lakeside residence!. Enjoy the convenience of being in the Village coupled with the privacy of being right on Mirror Lake! Early winter this year, great snow and the Lake is freezing! Step right outside the door, hope on your cross country skis and enjoy skiing around the Lake or take a tour and enjoy skiing on the golf courses located on the other side of the Lake!

Nestled within a grove of birch, beech and maple trees sits a rare vacation home in Lake Placid. An extra special treat for Ironman competitors and their family as it is situated in the middle of the swimming race course on the Village side of the Lake.

On the shores of beautiful Mirror Lake and located in the middle of the Olympic Village of Lake Placid, this 3 bedroom home provides it all... swim beach, pristine mountain lake, views of the high peaks including Whiteface Mt., sailboats and kayaks for summer play, 2 docks as well as creature comforts including Hot Tub, TV's, 3 Complete bedrooms, Jacuzzi tub in Master Bath, Wireless Internet, stereo with CD or plug in your IPod, dining room, living room and patio table with umbrella!

Fully furnished with all linen, towels and even spices and condiments stocked ahead to start you out!

In the winter, step outside your door and slip on some cross country skis and take a tour around Mirror Lake stopping by the renowned 'Cottage' at the Mirror Lake Inn. Cross Country skis are available on site as well as some boots. While you're located only steps away from all of Lake Placid's shops and restaurants you'll enjoy the privacy and quiet that this unique setting offers. You feel as though you're in the middle of the woods or your own private island! SORRY, WINTER 2014 IS ALREADY BOOKED OUT.

This home is part of a historic building that is also owned by the condo owner containing 8 other condo's and apartments although they are all situated on other levels and are not connected in any way to this owner's condo and do not have access to the private waterfront.

Enjoy the Bavarian knick-knacks that are complimented with scenes of skiing and golf. Owned by Ed Kreil, the Director of Whiteface Mt.'s Adult Ski School for many years as well as being a certified PGA Golf Teaching Pro, this home will feel like your home with its comfort and setting.

Your well behaved, trained dog is welcomed at Camp Kreil. We're sorry but we can't allow cats due to potential allergy problems.

About Mark Sperling

I've been Ski School Director for Whiteface Mt. for many years as well as PGA Teaching Golf Pro. For many years, my wife and I ran Goldberries Restaurant on Main Street in Lake Placid.

In addition to skiing, I love kite boarding, roller blading, traveling and enjoyable times with friends and family! Lake Placid is a fantastic town for everything you might like to do....recreating in the outdoors, great dining, name it, we've got it!

Mark Sperling purchased this condo in 1999

Why Mark Sperling chose Mirror Lake

Great town as it's a destination resort community having served as an Olympic site twice in its history. Lake Placid is still an Olympic training center and is host to a wide variety of sporting events.

What makes this condo unique

I like to be able to walk out of my bedroom, into the hot tub and then another 15 yards or so to my beach and the Lake. A great way to start the morning with a nice swim and again at night!

My beach and docks are private to this vacation property only. I always keep a sailboat tied up for my renters to use as they like as well as having a couple of kayaks all set to go as well. Every Wed and Thursday in the summer you can take a kayak about 5 minutes down the Lake and enjoy a concert going on from the bandshell on the shores of Mirror Lake. It's a great way to enjoy and recreate without having to get in a car and drive!

Our families happy place!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been coming to Lake Placid for over 10 years and this was the most amazing vacation our family has had... our kids played in the lake all day long; kayaking paddle boarding and then jumped into the hot tub to relax. We made a lot of good memories here ... The view is amazing the location is spectacular the home is beautiful and has everything you need and Ed was so friendly and gracious upon our arrival ... he even left a bottle of wine and some bread and fruit for us as a welcome. We can’t say enough good things about this place and Ed ... it truly is a magical place!

A gem in the heart of Lake Placid

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful home right in the heart of town yet very private. The house is fully stocked with everything we needed. Plenty of kayaks, SUP, and peddle boat And wonderful views of the lake. Eddie, the owner, could not have been more welcoming , greeting us upon arrival to tell us everything we needed to know about the property. Best location in Lake Placid! Cozy and comfortable. We would definitely stay here again!

Visiting this property is heaven and if I could give 100 stars I would!

The back yard is located on quiet Mirror Lake with kyacks, a sup, a paddle boat, a motor boat and a jacuzzi to entertain you and your family. Walk out the front and you are in the middle of Lake Placid dining and shopping. Park your car and never leave!

The property is clean, beautiful and we felt so much at home. And we could bring furry family member! Thank you Ed, we hope to visit your wonderful home again!

Everything you could wish for!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with a friend, our 2 dogs, and her dog. This is a simply wonderful place. It is very private with it's own large yard, beach area and kayaks! There is also a lovely deck with a table for eating and a fabulous outdoor jacuzzi. The kitchen is very well equipped. We ended up eating at home most nights as the view of the lake is the best in Lake Placid! It's also in a perfect location. Though it's very quiet and secluded, the second you climb the stairs to the sidewalk, you are in the middle of bustling downtown Lake Placid. Edi is also incredibly kind and helpful. Truly an idyllic experience. We hope to come back soon!

Fun and relaxation

  • 5 of 5

With all the boats to play with we had trouble getting the kids out of the water. I swear they were in the lake for two days straight. With 3 kayaks and a paddle board everyone had something to do. The views are breath taking and having your morning coffee by the water was fabulous. To rent the boats alone would be over $200 a day so the price is more than worth it. The flowers and landscaping in July are just beautiful. Humming birds visit them while sitting on the dock.

Do take time to see the bigger Lake Placid.

Loved our time there.

Owner's Response: We're so happy you were pleased with your stay. We just added the stand up paddle board to the "fleet" to make sure there were enough toys for everyone! Please join us again next year! We have many repeat guests each season but book early!

Incredible Place!!!

  • 5 of 5

There simply can't be a better place to stay in Lake Placid. This lovely home sits right on Mirror Lake and feels completely secluded from downtown, and yet all you have to do is climb a couple of flights of stairs and you find yourself in the middle of town.

We visited in August 2012 with our two daughters (8 and 5) and everyone had a blast. Between the lake, the hot tub and the easy proximity to everything in town, it really is the perfect combination of features. And, like every review says, Ed is a fabulous guy, eager to have his guests enjoy themselves and feel comfortable.

If you're looking to stay in Lake Placid, look no further. Camp Kreil is the place to go!
