Camp Kidura is a great destination for families or friends looking for a beautiful escape to relax and explore. With four bedrooms, two lofts and three full baths, this new, luxurious and comfortable Adirondack style home comfortably sleeps 10. Built for entertainment purposes, Camp Kidura has an open, custom-built kitchen (commercially equipped) that opens to the great room where it is hard to miss the spectacular/dramatic views of the lake and mountains through a wall of windows. The kitchen is fully equipped and has granite counters with custom, Douglas fir cabinets. Two wood burning stoves and radiant floor heat - in addition to the large stone fireplace - are very inviting after a day's activities. A large wrap around deck on the first level and a second story deck expand the already large living spaces. Immediately adjacent to the water is a stone patio that offers a more natural feel next to a boulder peninsula.

Camp Kidura includes wireless, high-speed internet access (for those that want it), a laundry area with washer and dryer, cable television, linens and housekeeping at the end of your stay provided. It is with great excitement and anticipation that we began our memorable times in the Adirondacks . We have built it for years of family fun and memories in mind. We share our home in hopes of other families creating and sharing memories, like ours, for years to come. Camp Kidura was named after two brothers who, on a slow afternoon at work one day, decided to finally realize their dream Adirondack home after a childhood of only visiting. Welcome and enjoy.

Happy GuestsHi Allison! Hands down- the most beautiful, well kept home we've stayed in. Thanks for the lifetime of memories! Re: the boat- my husband and I were so impressed that you made such an effort to secure a boat before our arrival. We even totally enjoyed the couple of inclement days there- my california boys braved the wind, rain, and white caps in the little skiff- cruising around the lake.. At the time, I thought "well- we are making the most of some rainy weather." Funny thing- in retrospect-both boys say those days were the most memorable there- they loved that- go figure- these LA boys never get to see "weather." . (: we are already plotting our return- that is so kind of you to offer a return discount- frankly- having now been around up there- Camp Kidura is the ONLY place we'd stay! Thank you again so very much.

What a wonderful, well constructed home with gorgeous views! It was so peaceful and relaxing – I do believe we were the only people in the entire camp. We really enjoyed the pheasants. The fireplace kept us toasty during these cold days. Thanks again for opening up your beautiful home to us.
