About the neighbourhood
Built in 1910 by my great-grandparents, Bird Camp is lovingly restored, cozy, clean and charming with incredible mountain views and wildflower meadows. So much to do nearby - swimming, rafting, skiing, hiking, the town of North Creek ... or just relax and enjoy the beauty of the gorgeous Adirondack mountains.

Bird Camp is an historic camp with charming authentic Adirondack architecture. It offers a beautiful glassed porch, two cozy bedrooms, a country kitchen, wide pine floors, a stone fireplace and insanely beautiful mountain views. The setting is quiet, private and wonderfully natural.

Pick herbs, tomatoes and flowers from our garden. Take a cool dip in the spring-fed pond, and a long walk down through the wildflowers. We have two mules we can saddle up for you, or you can just e...
