About Martha Erbland

We have spent many years camping, skiing, snowmobiling and paddling in the Saranac Lake area. We were finally able to purchase a vacation home last year. We are excited to be able to share our love of this area with you! Our home is in Rochester, NY. We are about 3 miles from Lake Ontario. We spend our time between our two homes.

Martha Erbland purchased this house in 2014

Why Martha Erbland chose Saranac Lake

The Erbland family has camped at Fishcreek Ponds State campground for the last 70+ years. We have grown to love this area and all that it has to offer. We have spent the last 30 years traveling here 3 or 4 times a year to spend time with our children and extended family.

What makes this house unique

The best thing about Whispering Pines is the view! From our back porch you have a beautiful view of the pond as it changes from season to season. The peacefulness of the pond is therapeutic. But, you are only 30 minutes from villages and towns that have spas, 5 star restaurants, and activities. From the Iron Man in Lake Placid, to the Tin Man in Tupper Lake. There is something for everyone!

Perfect family vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week at Camp Whispering Pines. The house was exactly as advertised--spacious, comfortable, convenient to town but still "away from it all." We loved paddling on Church Pond, building a fire in the fire pit and making s'mores, and just relaxing on the porch reading. My husband and 10-year-old daughter brought their bikes and I used one of the loaners at the house, and we went on some great rides in the area. The house has all the amenities you'd want. We never ran out of things to do and we are already thinking about our next visit!

Winter Wonderland!!

  • 4 of 5

The house is a lot bigger than the pictures shown, there is a large dinning table ( 8 pp) in the kitchen which was perfect for family dinners. We can only imagine how great it must be in the summer!!! Martha is very professional and a pleasure to deal with!!

spacious, clean property with boats on a big pond

  • 5 of 5

This newer house has all the amenities- lots of living space both inside and out: a screened-in deck and an open deck- lots of adirondack chairs, a pier with seating too. We used the boats, the decks, the finished basement with all the game systems, the living room overlooking the pond. We called the owner to learn how to use the gas fireplace and she responded immediately. The house is stocked with books and brochures about the area which we used. Two books of hikes were particularly useful. Two of our teenage nephews came to visit and loved the place. One asked where we found it because he wants to come back and so do we. I highly recommend this for a delightful vacation enjoying the Adirondacks with all the comforts.

My 2 sisters, myself, and our 6 kids (ages 4-11) stayed for a week in August. The house was large enough to accommodate a few floating guests that popped in for a few days. The location is perfect for a family get together. There is a lot of fun outdoor activities to do in the area but the pond was so wonderful we ended up spending most of the time at the house. The rental included a lot of nice extras like fishing poles and boats. The house was well supplied with all the comforts of home. The swimming was perfect for the kids. We hear loons every night as we went to bed.

Car: necessary

We are located 30 minutes from the village of Saranac Lake and 45 minutes from Lake Placid. We are about 1 hour from Whiteface Mountain and 1 hour from Titus Mountain. We are on Corridor 8 trail for snowmobiles. We are 5 minutes from the public boat launch for Upper Saranac Lake and 20 minutes from the public launch at Lower Saranac Lake. We are on the Saranac Inn Golf Course. There are the 46 peaks to climb, hundreds of ponds to paddle and fish, the Wild Center and the VIC at Paul Smith's College. You can be as busy or relaxed as you want. There are many restaurants in both Saranac Lake and Lake Placid. You can also visit the AuSable River and hike, swim or tube. We are located close enough to Lake Placid for the Iron Man and the 70.3 events. This is the perfect place for a summer, fall or winter get away!
