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 Adirondacks

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!

Great location, great situation

  • 5 of 5

The camp was immaculate upon arrival and had everything we needed. My family is very familiar to Upper Saranac Lake and found Church Pond a quiet and peaceful surprise and one, with which we had not been familiar previously.

The numerous TV's and video games were wasted on us as we use our time in the Adirondacks as back to nature time. Lots of hiking, mountain climbing,swimming, reading etc. This camp had it all.

Whispering Pines - A jewel in the Adirondacks.

  • 5 of 5

Camp Whispering Pines is a perfect location for an active or restful vacation. Upon arrival, we realized that the house was perfect for our family of five with different vacation expectations. The house is located on Church Pond, a quiet lake offering swimming, boating, and fishing opportunities. Oh, I forgot to mention the many hiking trails in the area, the local golf course and the lovely towns of Saranac Lake, Lake Placid and Tupper Lake (all in reasonable driving distance). I can't think of any amenity that the house did not have available and we found the location spotless upon arrival. This is simply an excellent getaway venue! We hope to return in the future.

Perfect Adirondack vacation cabin!

  • 5 of 5

If you want the perfect place to vacation in the Adirondacks, Whispering Pines is the place. We spent a week here with our family of 6, including 4 teenage to young adult children. The cabin was immaculate and every detail had been thought of by the owners. There was nothing we were missing. The entire cabin is perfectly designed...bedrooms, bathrooms, living area and a wonderful kitchen. Our favorite place to hang out was the back porch and deck, and of course the campfire and dock and lake. The cabin is gorgeous, beautifully crafted with attention to anything a family could want or need. The owners have thought of everything! It could not have been a more perfect vacation. Felt like our own personal getaway in the middle of peace and quiet with easy access to Lake Placid and Saranac. Also hiked Ampersand, and enjoyed the loons on the lake in the morning and at night. We cannot wait to come back!!!! Thanks for an amazing vacation!!!!

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!
