About the property

3BD 2 Full Bath Home - Pontoon Boat Included-Waterfront Camp Lake Placid NY

Come to Camp Happy Hours a boat access only Classic Adirondack Camp that sits on the west shore of Lake Placid. This 3BR 2BA house can accommodate up to 10 guests and pets are considered (with a fee). Enjoy lake front living and dazzling sunsets in this classic Adirondack style camp steps away from the water's edge; a location well suited away from the hustle and bustle, yet close enough to Main Street for shopping, dining, music in the park or ice cream. Please contact me at 508-237-9669 to discuss renting the property.

At Camp Happy Hours you can unplug from everyday stress and get back to what really matters in life; nature-family-friends while making memories that will last a lifetime. Our guests can enjoy sunbathing, swimming, fishing, kayaking, paddle boarding and even jumping off our floating dock. Or just sit back and take in the amazing views and fresh air! You can watch boats go by from the Adirondack Chairs on the dock or on the covered front porch. Catch a sunset from the dock or during a cruise around the lake on the pontoon boat. Then enjoy s'mores by the fire pit at night with the family. The more adventurous can enjoy water skiing, wake boarding, and other water sports on one of the cleanest lakes in America. There are also many hiking trails right from the property to hike the old SOA trail or summit Whiteface from our doorstep.

There are only 200 houses on the lake and Camp Happy Hours has all the amenities one could ask for: a brand new Ipe dock that can accommodate multiple boats (one boat is included with rental- a 2016 Pontoon Boat), nice sandy beach for wading or smaller children to comfortably play in the water, a yard area for games like washers or horseshoes. We also have an original lean-to on the property that offers a fun place to play games, read or even "camp" if you are adventurous.

Access to the camp is boat access only but a pontoon boat and parking space is provided with your stay at the Lake Placid Marina. It is a five minute boat ride to the camp which offers you a majestic and serene vacation for all! You will never want to leave behind the magic of Camp Happy Hours and the beautiful sounds of the Loons!

About Stacia Takach

We are the Takachs; Stacia & Mike {parents to Isaac & Louie our adorable yet rambunctious 4 legged children!} We are small business owners who currently live on Cape Cod. Michael is a stone mason and Stacia runs three small businesses as well as our vacation rentals. We welcome you to Camp Happy Hours and hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Lake Placid is a magical place for us. On our second date we visited to take in the splendor and beauty of the Adirondacks amidst the peak of Fall Foliage! Lake Placid is where we fell in love, got engaged and eventually married on the shore of Lake Placid six years to the day of our first trip! For years we had searched for a property that not only we could love but we could share with others that feel the same way we do about the Adirondack Park! In 2013 we bought a small year round cabin that we named The Bear Den ( When we pulled into the driveway we knew it was home. We have shared this property with families, couples, friends and fur babies over the last 3.5 years. During this time we realized that our passion for the Adirondacks/Lake Placid coupled with our joy in renting traditional Adirondack cabins to our guests is where we belong!

Stacia Takach purchased this house in 2016

Why Stacia Takach chose Lake Placid

In 2015 we stayed at Camp Happy Hours with our friends, their children and our pup! We had the same feeling of home when we pulled up to the dock. As the stars aligned we were able to purchase the property in 2016. We cannot wait for our friends, family, guests and fur babies get to enjoy C.H.H. for many years to come. In a world where everything is fast paced, impersonal, and technology focused a trip to Happy Hours will reset you back to what matters in life and that is to be with your loved ones...Talk....Tell Stories.....Play Games....Make Smores....Hike....Swim.....Boat....Get out into put down the IPADS, Computers, and TV's! One of my most favorite memories so far is that our friends son Liam learned to swim at Happy Hours two years ago and this summer he was a fish! He loved racing to the swim dock jumping/diving/laughing/and swimming the whole way! I can't wait to see what we discover next summer.

We hope that you find as much joy as we do when staying at Camp Happy Hours. Weather you are on a family vacation, romantic getaway, honeymoon or just a quick trip with family or friends to get back to the beauty of the Adirondacks we know you will make memories that last forever! WELCOME WELCOME WELCOME and we hope to see you very soon!

What makes this house unique

There are very few properties that have all of the amenities Camp Happy Hours offers to our guests. We have a sandy beach, a large dock with gorgeous views of Whiteface, access to hiking trails from our backdoor, a covered porch, a yard, a lien to and so much more. I guarantee you will have the vacation of a lifetime if you come and stay at Camp Happy Hours; it is simply magic!

Great stay at Camp Happy Hours!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has rented many vacation homes over the years - at the beach, skiing, lake houses etc. I can honestly say this was the best experience we have ever had with a vacation rental. The owners of Camp Happy Hours are awesome. They were a pleasure to work with and were really helpful. They met us at the dock, took us to the house and spent time to show us around and give us lots of recommendations and activities, places to eat etc. The house is fantastic and has everything you will need - high quality sheets and towels, a kitchen stocked with everything you need - nice knives and flatware, pots, pans etc. There is even a stockpile of split wood for the fire pit. Nothing beats the beauty and tranquility of this place. Sitting on the porch in the morning and evenings was heavenly! Our teenage boys had a great time tubing, kayaking, fishing and just swimming off of the dock. We also enjoyed experiencing the various Olympic venues, particularly the ski jumping. I highly recommend this house!

Peaceful Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

My family (including my 7 year old son) had an amazing vacation. The house was big enough to spend time together eating and playing cards inside or outside. The bedrooms were comfortable and big enough for everyone to have their own space. Most of our time was spent on the porch and dock. The fireplace inside and fire pit outside made sure we always had a place to roast smores! We were able to kayak and spend time on the boat. Being right on the lake was an amazing experience and we cannot wait for another family vacation there!

Perfect Adirondack retreat.

  • 5 of 5

This place was great. It had lots of rustic charm and Adirondack character. The bedrooms were spacious and nicely decorated. We found ourselves particularly enjoying the living room fireplace, the backyard fire pit, and the large front porch overlooking the lake. It was a very relaxing getaway. Highly recommend.
