|Private and secluded, yet centrally located, Camp Hatteras is located seven miles north of Paul Smith's College. You'll be in one of the most varied wilderness areas of the Adirondack Park. 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. We're located in the middle of some of the Adirondacks most dependable snow for cross-country skiing, with abundant groomed and backcountry trails nearby. The Adirondack Visitor's Interpretive Center is five miles away and is open year round with wonderful trails and educational programs for the whole family. You'll 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 is 40 minutes away in Tupper Lake.
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-rooms 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. If you'd rather not heat with a woodstove, the electric baseboard heat is always there to keep you warm. Plenty of parking during all seasons.
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 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!
