Large 4 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom All Season Camp On Church Pond
About Martha Erbland
We have spent many years camping, skiing, snowmobiling and paddling in the Saranac Lake area. We were finally able to purchase a vacation home last year. We are excited to be able to share our love of this area with you! Our home is in Rochester, NY. We are about 3 miles from Lake Ontario. We spend our time between our two homes.
Martha Erbland purchased this House in 2014
Why Martha Erbland chose Saranac Lake
The Erbland family has camped at Fishcreek Ponds State campground for the last 70+ years. We have grown to love this area and all that it has to offer. We have spent the last 30 years traveling here 3 or 4 times a year to spend time with our children and extended family.
What makes this House unique
The best thing about Whispering Pines is the view! From our back porch you have a beautiful view of the pond as it changes from season to season. The peacefulness of the pond is therapeutic. But, you are only 30 minutes from villages and towns that have spas, 5 star restaurants, and activities. From the Iron Man in Lake Placid, to the Tin Man in Tupper Lake. There is something for everyone!

Camp Whispering Pines is a hidden gem on Church Pond. Private, quiet and still- perfect for the kids who want their independence and the folks who want to keep an eye on them. The home is beautifully decorated with handmade Adirondack style furniture and details, and quite comfortable for our group of six. The home is well stocked with all the "little things" offered and provided. The owners were a pleasure to deal with. Camp Whispering Pines is your next perfect choice!
Wonderful home, everything set up just right.
Great fun on the lake and in the woods. Hiking, swimming, paddling,rowing,roasting,and cycling. The pond is really clean and clear. Coming back next year.
Thank you!! We love to hear about our guests experiences!! We’re glad to welcome you back next year!!
The house is a lot bigger than the pictures shown, there is a large dinning table ( 8 pp) in the kitchen which was perfect for family dinners. We can only imagine how great it must be in the summer!!! Martha is very professional and a pleasure to deal with!!
My 2 sisters, myself, and our 6 kids (ages 4-11) stayed for a week in August. The house was large enough to accommodate a few floating guests that popped in for a few days. The location is perfect for a family get together. There is a lot of fun outdoor activities to do in the area but the pond was so wonderful we ended up spending most of the time at the house. The rental included a lot of nice extras like fishing poles and boats. The house was well supplied with all the comforts of home. The swimming was perfect for the kids. We hear loons every night as we went to bed.
Beautiful and relaxing! Many wonderful memories made!
Martha and Scott have a little slice of heaven here on Church Pond. Our Family had a wonderful vacation here!
Thank you!! We love sharing our idea of paradise with others!! So glad you enjoyed your time there!!
spacious, clean property with boats on a big pond
This newer house has all the amenities- lots of living space both inside and out: a screened-in deck and an open deck- lots of adirondack chairs, a pier with seating too. We used the boats, the decks, the finished basement with all the game systems, the living room overlooking the pond. We called the owner to learn how to use the gas fireplace and she responded immediately. The house is stocked with books and brochures about the area which we used. Two books of hikes were particularly useful. Two of our teenage nephews came to visit and loved the place. One asked where we found it because he wants to come back and so do we. I highly recommend this for a delightful vacation enjoying the Adirondacks with all the comforts.
Thank you for your kind words. We love our camp and we love to hear that others enjoy it too!! Come back any time!!
Scott and Martha
We are located 30 minutes from the village of Saranac Lake and 45 minutes from Lake Placid. We are about 1 hour from Whiteface Mountain and 1 hour from Titus Mountain. We are on Corridor 8 trail for snowmobiles. We are 5 minutes from the public boat launch for Upper Saranac Lake and 20 minutes from the public launch at Lower Saranac Lake. We are on the Saranac Inn Golf Course. There are the 46 peaks to climb, hundreds of ponds to paddle and fish, the Wild Center and the VIC at Paul Smith's College. You can be as busy or relaxed as you want. There are many restaurants in both Saranac Lake and Lake Placid. You can also visit the AuSable River and hike, swim or tube. We are located close enough to Lake Placid for the Iron Man and the 70.3 events. This is the perfect place for a summer, fall or winter get away!
