Secluded Luxurious Rustic Log Camp in the Heart of the Adirondacks: Camp Ankabos

Bedrooms 4
Space 3,000 sq ft
Property type lodge
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

4 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, sleeps 16

Hunters are welcome, although there is no hunting permitted on the property or adjacent properties, there are many acres of State lands within 15 to 30 mins.

Prom groups are welcome at $90 per head per night. Adult supervision will be nearby. Security deposit of $2,000 required.

Camp Ankabos is located at the end of a 1/2 mile private road at the foot of Crane Mountain. The pristine Garnet Lake is a 5 minute drive and Gore Mountain downhill skiing is a 15 minute drive.

The Camp overlooks a mountain pond with a picnic area that is part of the 45 acres owned by the Buckskin Valley Homeowners' Association. The pond is very cold as it is spring fed, so it isn't really a swimming pond. The private lane is maintained by the Association. The seven homes in the Association are all second homes and there are rarely many people around. There are hiking and snowshoe/ski trails on the 45 acres.

The popular hiking trail to Crane Mountain is nearby and in the summer the kayaking and swimming at Garnet Lake is just superb.

Decorated in true Adirondack camp style with leather couches and a collection of antique taxidermy.

Large Jacuzzi tub in Master Bathroom suite.

Snowshoe/Cross Country Ski Trails Camp Ankabos is part of the Buckskin Valley Association which owns 45 acres of common land. Several landowners in the area have given each other access to their property for snowshoeing and cross country skiing. NO SNOWMOBILING is allowed on the trails. When the snow is good, one of the property owners grooms the trails for cross country skiing. Groomed or not, they are still fine for snowshoes (and dogs). You can rent snowshoes and skis at Beaverbrook – mentioned below. If you decide to use these trails, it is strictly AT YOUR OWN RISK. They are not part of my property or part of the rental. There is a trail map on the kitchen counter at the Camp. The closest trailhead is a sharp right turn into the woods at the top of the Camp driveway.

If your looking for a quiet vacation to enjoy your family and the outdoors this is the place for you. The cabin is very cozy and plenty of room for a large family! We loved the country decor, the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed, the back deck was so amazing! Thank you, Marilyn for sharing this beautiful cabin with us, we look forward to rent from you again!!

Charming cabin!

  • 5 of 5

My family (2 adults & 3 kids), my brother's family ( 2 adults & 2 kids) & our parents stayed in this charming cabin for a week. We had a wonderful time, there was plenty of space for everyone. The kids loved the bunk room & the other three bedrooms were lovely, everyone had their own place to relax and get away if they needed.

The cabin is decorated so well, there isn't a detail missed. You have everything you could want in a mountain retreat. The kids loved roasting marshmellows on the fire outside at night and exploring the woods behind the cabin during the day.

We took day trips to Saratoga Springs, Lake George & other nearby hiking trails. If you want a place to get away from it all, relax and enjoy the outdoors this is the place to be. Thank you for sharing this gem in the mountains with us. We are already planning our trip for next summer.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great vacation experience! Spent a lot of time at Garnet lake which is 2 minutes away. Found out you can put motor boats in the lake. No dock however. Would not put in a large boat. We saw 2 bear cubs playing in the back yard. My family had a great time!

Animals allowed

I am considering renting your home in July 2014. My daughter is allergic to animals and I noticed a dog in one of your pictures. Do you allow pets into your home?

The area around the Gore Mountain Ski Resort is classic Adirondack country. Gore Mountain is a 15 minute drive away. In addition to the winter activities at Gore Mountain, there is kayaking and hiking very close by. In the winter, there are snow shoeing and cross country ski trails right out the back door of the property and many more in the vicinity. The property sits at the base of Crane Mountain (a popular mountain to hike), near the beautiful, largely undeveloped, Garnet Lake.

It is a very peaceful and secluded setting. Perfect for letting the children and pets run free.
