Why We  love  Lake Placid?

Lake Placid is a magical place for us.  On our second date we visited to take in the splendor and beauty of the Adirondacks amidst the peak of Fall Foliage!  Lake Placid is where we fell in love, got engaged and eventually married on the shore of Lake Placid six years to the day of our first trip!  For years we had searched for a property that not only we could love but we could share with others that feel the same way we do about the Adirondack Park!  In 2013 we bought a small year round cabin that we named The Bear Den (www.thebearden.net). When we pulled into the driveway we knew it was home.  We have shared this property with families, couples, friends and fur babies over the last 3.5 years. During this time we realized that our passion for the Adirondacks/Lake Placid coupled with our joy in renting traditional adirondack cabins to our guests is where we belong!


In 2015 we stayed at Camp Happy Hours with our friends, their children and our pup! We had the same feeling of home when we pulled up to the dock. As the stars aligned we were able to purchase the property in 2016. We cannot wait for our friends, family, guests and fur babies get to enjoy C.H.H. for many years to come. In a world where everything is fast paced, impersonal, and technology focused a trip to Happy Hours will reset you back to what matters in life and that is to be with your loved ones...Talk....Tell Stories.....Play Games....Make Smores....Hike....Swim.....Boat....Get out into Nature.....Laugh.....and put down the IPADS, Computers, and TV's!  One of my most favorite memories so far is that our friends son Liam learned to swim at Happy Hours two years ago and this summer he was a fish! He loved racing to the swim dock jumping/diving/laughing/and swimming the whole way! I can't wait to see what we discover next summer.

We hope that you find as much joy as we do when staying at Camp Happy Hours.  Weather you are on a family vacation, romantic getaway, honeymoon or just a quick trip with family or friends to get back to the beauty of the Adirondacks we know you will make memories that last forever!  WELCOME WELCOME WELCOME and we hope to see you very soon!
