Property Description

This relaxing retreat was built to view the sun, the moon and the trees. Nestled in a mature pine forest, the wind whispers through, caressing your ears in the summer, and the snow hangs elegantly on the trees in the winter. Part of a 50 acre tree farm and maple sugar bush, this well cared for property boasts abundant wildlife and a network of walking and skiing trails which take you past wetlands, cliffs and a variety of forest types.

Camp Hatteras has three bedrooms and sleeps up to 8 people. Two of the bedrooms have two twin beds each and a third bedroom has a full. An open loft has a futon, which can be folded open for another person or two. Two bathrooms with showers make sure that no one is waiting. There is a complete laundry room for those making longer stays. There are toys for younger children to discover, and a high chair and "potty" for toddlers.

A wrap-around deck has a propane grill and picnic table in a screened porch. Bring some water jugs with you, as this 500' deep well delivers the freshest, tastiest mountain water that you could ever want. You'll want to take some home. There is a nice campfire spot for summertime marshmallow roasts or quiet fire gazing. The glass front wood stove sheds a warming glow across the great-room's hardwood floors in the winter.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a microwave, electric oven and range, a dishwasher, and all of the things that make cooking healthy, hearty meals possible.

Firewood is supplied for our winter guest's heating comfort, and a reasonable amount of campfire wood is available in the summer as well. The driveway travels about 200 yards in from the main road and is well plowed with plenty of parking. If you'd rather not heat with a wood stove, the electric baseboard heat is always there to keep you warm.

Location Description

Private and secluded, yet centrally located, Camp Hatteras is located seven miles north of Paul Smiths College on Rt. 30. You will be in one of the most varied wilderness areas of the park. We are located in the middle of some of the Adirondack's most dependable snow for cross-country skiing, with abundant groomed and back country trails nearby.

The Adirondack Park Visitors Interpretive Center is five miles away and is open year round with wonderful hiking, XC skiing, snowshoe trails and educational programs for the whole family.

You will be 25 minutes to Titus Mountain Ski Center, Saranac Lake or Malone; 35 minutes to Lake Placid and its Olympic venues; 50 minutes to Whiteface Mountain. The Natural History Museum of the Adirondacks (the Wild Center) is 40 minutes away in Tupper Lake.

In the warmer months, there are nearby trails which are excellent for mountain biking with both back country roads and single-track. Designated horseback riding trail heads are less than a mile away. A Wild and Scenic Study River, the Osgood, flows nearby with put-in and take-outs within a couple of miles of your driveway. Drop-off and pick-up arrangements can be made. This is a must paddle for those interested in wildlife and scenery. Many have spotted the Bald Eagle who has a nest at the rivers edge. We are surrounded by many great fishing spots.

Your hosts, Bob and Sheila, are a former professional wilderness guide, and a life-long resident of the Paul Smiths area. Between the two of them, good advice connecting you to great experiences and unique destinations is as close to a sure thing as you can get. The temporary use of their brains is complimentary!

Great ADK Getaway

Great for a family vacation in the woods with all the amenities. Big upgrade from the lean-to's we normally stay at! Large enough for 2 families. Property was updated and very well maintained. Sheila and Bob were great hosts, thanks for making us feel right at home! The week flew by as our days were filled with fishing, hiking, canoeing and swimmin... Read More

Would Come Back In A Heart Beat!

I'd come back in a heart beat- not because of what the surroundings offer- other houses in the area have that too. But for the human touch: the house feels like a home. It's clean, comfortable and inviting. Sheila went out of her way to attend to every little detail to make our stay enjoyable. If she could control the weather, she would. Thanks!

What You See Is What You Get!!

This was our first time renting a vacation home. I have to say, I was very skeptical about the whole ordeal. But my sister-in-law was insistent that we get together somewhere snowy for Christmas. We could not have had any better first experience renting a home than this. Sheila is very prompt and thorough in replying to any questions you may have b... Read More

Great Gift Idea

Believe the reviews, Folks! This place is a gem! It is so lovely and so well cared for. I tend to be a bit fanatical when it comes to the cleanliness of accomodations. No worries here! Everything was spotless! The kitchen was such a pleasure to work in. It was wonderfully supplied, including full sets of dishes, wine glasses, various spices, even a... Read More
