Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday chalet in Paul Smiths - Camp Hatteras

Rates drop to $150/nt after 2nd nt, sleeps up to 8.

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.

Private and secluded, yet centrally located, Camp Hatteras is located near Paul Smiths College. You’ll be in one of the most varied wilderness areas of the park. We’re located in the middle of some of the Adirondack’s most dependable snow for cross-country skiing, with abundant groomed and backcountry trails nearby. You’ll be 20 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 is 40 minutes away.

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 queen. 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 summer/winter time marshmallow roasts or quiet fire gazing. The glass front woodstove 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 woodstove, the electric baseboard heat is always there to keep you warm.

In the warmer months, there are nearby trails which are excellent for mountain biking with both backcountry roads and single-track. Designated horseback riding trailheads 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 river’s 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 Smith’s 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!

Another relaxing vacation at Camp Hatteras

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd stay at the Camp. Very private. We really love the quaint, comfortable, relaxing atmosphere of the chalet. You feel right at home from the minute you walk in the door with the Adirondack music playing in the background. Although there was only two of us, there’s plenty of room and accommodations for much larger groups. There are many wonderful features to the Camp, but our favorite is the awesome fire pit. There’s also a screened in porch for use in the warmer weather and a wraparound upper deck to view the property when having your morning coffee. The fire pit is the largest and nicest one that we’ve seen with ample comfortable seating and plenty of firewood. There’s also a large new propane grill on site. The many trails on the property and wildlife make the Camp an adventure in itself.

The location of the Camp is ideal for hiking around the grounds, at Paul Smith’s VIC, nearby mountains, or other trails nearby. The areas numerous ponds are ideal for a paddle, whether it’s in a canoe or kayak. Sheila, the owner, is a lifelong resident and is more than happy to share her knowledge of the area and give suggestions for a mountain climb, hike or a paddle. It’s close proximity to Saranac Lake and Lake Placid is also a plus.

We always enjoy our stay at the Camp and look forward to returning soon.

Camp Hatteras

  • 5 of 5

Camp Hatteras is a gorgeous camp in Paul Smith's New York! We arrived with everything we thought we would need for our 4 day get away, we brought too much! The camp had everything except our food and clothes! The privateness was exactly what we were looking for and the wood stove topped it off. We enjoyed exploring, sledding, a bon fire outside, hiking and skiing! We would recommend this camp to everyone looking to experience the Adirondacks and nature at it's finest? Thank you very much Sheila we felt welcomed and at home!!!!

Beautiful home hidden in the ADK woods

  • 5 of 5

Sheila and her family were incredibly accommodating and helpful! It is clear that she has a passion for connecting people with the beauty of the Adirondacks and had a lot of insight to offer about skiing/hiking. She also was kind enough to provide our group with a large bottle of maple syrup tapped on her family's property! The only let down was the firm line around only 8 guests being allowed. The home is very big and we were disappointed to hear that only 8 could join so just know that going in. All in all a truly great weekend!

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted to find such a wonderful place that felt like we were hours from civilization, yet 25 minutes from so much! Sheila was great to work with when securing the rental, and once we arrived the Eckerts were the best hosts. Bob was available for anything we needed and a delight to talk to.

The screened porch housed many dinners & the fire pit was great in the evenings. The house was well maintained and clean. The house was perfect for our family of four, and even spacious enough to have a few friends join us for a few days. We ate and shopped in Lake Placid, as well as spent a day at Ausable Chasm. Can't wait to go back.

Another Amazing Vacation at Camp Hatteras

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed another amazing week at Camp Hatteras. We have rented many rental homes over the years, but have never returned to a home we had rented before as we enjoy seeing and exploring new places. Camp Hatteras broke this tradition and we are so happy we returned for another winter adventure (we were here the same week in 2012). Sheila and Bob continue to be wonderful hosts and always have terrific suggestions on what to see and do. This year we didn’t have as much snow, but their suggestions for walks and a museum (The Wild Museum) were perfect for our family and children (ages: 17, 13, 8). The house is always spotless, warm, plenty of wood available if you want to heat by wood, and the kitchen is well-stocked. Trips to The VIC, Mt. Titus for skiing, Saranac Lake, the trails on the property, and the sledding hill on the property made for plenty of outdoor adventure and memories. The only drawback for us is that it is a 9 hour drive away or we would likely rent it more often. We can’t say enough positives about Camp Hatteras and give it our highest recommendation for the house, area, owners, and sites to experience in the Adirondacks!
