Eagle Nest is a unique gem of a Great Camp nestled in a private, pristine lakefront Adirondack setting. The property extends over 2000 acres encompassing 3 lakes, connected through two channels where beaver, blue heron, eagles and otters are often spotted.
The Main lodge and guest cottage and cabin include 22 guest rooms for a maximum total of 40 guests almost all with their own bathroom, and most with their own fireplace and walk-in closets.

The Main lodge features a warm, cozy but spacious Classic Great room with huge fireplace, innumerable Adirondack details,custom made furniture, card tables and reading nooks. The birch-bark wrapped dining room has an expandable main dining table to sit 10 to 30 people, as well as a beautiful, covered octagonal porch overlooking the lake, with comfortable sofas for outdoor dining or relaxing. The professional kitchen features a walk-in fridge chamber, industrial twin range, with separate grill top, 2 dishwashers.
Other fun gathering areas include the library study and downstairs, a real 1930s Speakeasy bar room with pool table and table tennis room.

The property is perfect for exploring the outdoors. Whether on the lakes fishing or boating, or swimming or in the woods where miles of marked trails for mountain biking or hiking, or across the fairways of this former 9-hole golf course, guests have the chance to experience life in the Adirondacks in the luxurious exclusivity of their own private estate. There are only four other boat-houses in the four miles Utowana and Eagle Lakes, and these spring-fed lakes boast some of the cleanest, purest water in the Adirondack park.
