Serendipity is a large, lakefront cabin on Fern Lake with a stunning view of Whiteface Mountain and the High Peaks region of the Adirondacks. Just steps away from Fern Lake, this large camp has everything you need for a relaxing and fun-filled summer vacation. The camp has been in the same family since 1953 and is filled with nostalgia reminiscent of On Golden Pond. Enjoy a dive off the dock, a BBQ in the fire-pit, puzzles on the screened porch, or a cocktail on the sun deck, take the canoes for a paddle, or walk down to the white Sandy Beach for a warm, clear swim with a spectacular view. Come to Serendipity and play horseshoes, darts, or fish off the dock, because by the lake, we forget to count the days. The camp has five bedrooms; One (1) queen bedroom, two (2) full bedrooms, one (1) bedroom with two twins, and one (1) bunkroom and one (1) twin pull-out bed on the screened in porch. The kitchen is well appointed with electric stove, microwave, new fridge, plenty of pantry storage and a large assortment of pots, pans, plates, mugs, glasses, and stemware. (There is no dishwasher but you won't mind drying dishes in front of the best view in NY State!) There are two TVs, each with DVD/VCRs including a large movie collection. There is also a washing machine and drying lines on the property. There is a fresh water pump on the property for drinking water or feel free to bring your own 5 gallon jug for the water bubbler.

About Us: See more about Camp Serendipity and the owners at

Why our property is special: Serendipity is a jewel in the crown of the best kept secret in the Adirondack Park. Fern Lake is a clean little lake with the best view in New York State. Just steps from the lake's edge, this camp was lovingly built, decorated, and enjoyed by its owners since 1953. A fourth generation of family members are being raised on the lake with tales of summers past. We have had renters who are also now bringing a second or third generation to the lake. Rent from us and join the family!
