Welcome to White Tail Run

Your new favourite getaway in the heart of the Adirondacks.


White Tail Run is a year round residence ideally located on the shores of Oseetah Lake, just minutes from downtown Lake Placid or the Village of Saranac Lake. The Lake is surrounded by mountains and offers some of the best fishing and boating in the Adirondacks.

The camp is a 3-story year round home (built in 2005), with 4 bedrooms, a large loft that converts to a sleep area, 3 1/2 baths, laundry facilities, gourmet kitchen, large dining area, and a great room with cathedral ceilings. A large stone, gas-fired fireplace adorns the great room. The large deck, which is attached to the front of the house facing the lake, is a favorite spot for late afternoon gatherings. The home also features an enclosed porch with beautiful lake and mountain views. Access to the property is by private road which is maintained on a year round basis. Travel by automobile to the Village of Saranac Lake, 10 minutes away, or Lake Placid which is about 15 minutes away. The lake is connected to four other lakes in the Saranac Chain all of which are accessible by boat, canoe or Kayak. These lakes include Middle & Lower Saranac, Kiwassa and Lake Flower. A boat launch is available just down the road from the camp.

Summer months offer hikers and climbers of all levels some of the most challenging and beautiful terrain in North America. Golf enthusiasts will find some of the finest championship caliber golf course in and around the area. The area is a virtual paradise for all to enjoy the great outdoors. In the winter time, the frozen lake is ideal for cross country skiing and snowmobiling. Whiteface Mountain, site of the 1980 Olympics, and ranked Number 1 in the East by Ski Magazine is a 25 minutes drive.

Serene location and wonderful house!

Our stay exceeded our expectations! The pictures do not live up to the actual experience. The view is spectacular, the house is amazing, the area is gorgeous, and the owner is wonderful! We will definitely be traveling here again!

Particularly liked that the house was stocked with games and a fantastic sound system! COMFORTABLY sleeps 9 adults. Loved that the owners wrote a “manual” for both the house and the area, giving reviews on local places. Loved that the house had the typical “staples” that are annoying to buy and can be costly (napkins, spices, coffee and even beer!)

If you are looking for a beautiful house in a beautiful location with a beautiful view THIS is the house for you!

Do not look any further – this house will exceed your expectations!

The house is beautiful, and the landscape breathtaking. The house was well prepared when we arrived and we felt at home very quickly. Very family friendly with lots of activities for the kids in the basement. So many spots to read a book, and relax from a hike in the immediate area. We would have liked to stay longer!

Best kept secret in Lake Placid!

That was our second time staying at this house. This place is truly amazing and we enjoyed every day spent there. The house is located only 10-15 minutes away form Lake Placid village. It is very clean, warm, spacious and extremely well equipped. It has everything that you might need during your stay. Thank you Sue! You are a great host!

We can’t say enough good things about this amazing Log Home. It is extremely clean and had everything we needed and more. The views are stunning, the property is spacious and conveniently located only minutes from downtown. The Kids had an amazing time playing in the play room as well as sledding and playing outside on the small hill next to the house. The owners more than helpful answering any of our questions and making sure that we are all set. We would highly recommend this property to anyone that is looking to visit the Lake Placid area.

Our First Stay

This cabin had everything that we believe the perfect cabin should have. Beautiful views, open spacious rooms and beautifully decorated. The forest around the home filled with quiet and peaceful. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you so much Bruce and Sue! We will be back another time.
