ADIRONDACK MTN. CHALET NESTLED IN A PRIVATE, SECLUDED 33 ACRE FOREST.

Paul Smiths Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Rates drop to $150/nt after 2nd nt, sleeps up to 8, call for 2 person discount.

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!

Bob, Hannah, Luke & Sheila enjoy traveling, but they love the Adirondacks and can't imagine living anywhere else. This property was built by family & friends for Bob's parents and is now rented out as it truly is a gift to be shared.

LOVELY TIME AT CAMP HATTERAS

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four from Connecticut thoroughly enjoyed our week-long stay at Camp Hatteras. It had all the comforts of home. It was neat, clean and well-stocked with everything we needed for our home-cooked meals and grilling. We ate out on the screened porch almost every night. The convenient location was perfect for our paddling adventures, trips to the Adirondack Museum, Whiteface Mountain, The Wild, and nearby hiking. It was a delight to relax either on the deck, curled up in the loft reading a good book, or while enjoying an evening campfire. Sheila was most accommodating, suggesting paddles and a hike, which suited us well. Glad we chose Camp Hatteras—highly recommended.

CAMP HATTERAS WAS PERFECT FOR OUR STAY!

  • 5 of 5
This comfortable, cozy cabin-style home was perfect for our family (7 total)! It is comfortable and has all the conveniences to make your own meals, etc. Very quiet wooded acreage with lots of privacy. Downstairs bedroom and bath are great for folks who need ground level accommodations.
Would we stay again? In a heartbeat!

SNOWY WEEKEND AT CAMP HATTERAS

  • 5 of 5
We arrived late Friday to a very welcoming Camp Hatteras. The entire home was well heated, spotless, and charming music playing on the stereo.

The home is perfect for a family getaway, with all the perks of a modern home, but the seclusion and nature filled atmosphere of tent camping. The rent is very reasonable, and easily the best investment I have ever made for a vacation.

The homeowners were very welcoming to us, as well as kind enough to show us their very impressive syrup production just a short drive down the road.

I plan on going back to Camp Hatteras in the near future, there is still a lot I want to explore in the area.

TRUE ADK ATMOSPHERE & EXPERIENCE

True ADK Atmosphere & Experience
  • 5 of 5
Our family absolutely enjoyed Thanksgiving week at Camp Hatteras. We arrived after dark with the snow still falling. After our long drive to the Camp, it was especially welcoming to enter the cabin to soothing music and the scent of a balsam candle. It didn't take us long to settle in, light the wood stove and make ourselves right at home.

We agree with all the previous reviews of this property, clean, equipped, comfortable and located in the midst of nature. We did venture into the Town of Malone and further north to the casino one night. But, all in all, we were happy to leave “city” behind for a few days.

We had much enjoyed family time. The fellows took advantage of canoeing, tracking, hiking and hunting. Extra sledding for Mom and little grandson and plenty of slow cooked feasts.

Our stay was everything we expected and more ….. topped with outstanding maple syrup produced by hosts, Sheila & Bob. Delicious!

We would definitely stay there again and would recommend Camp Hatteras to others.

RELAXING RETREAT IN THE WOODS

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we walked into the house, we instantly felt at home in the beautiful surroundings. There was soft soothing Adirondack music playing and the smell of a balsam fir candle in the air. The house was spotless and decorated very tastefully and felt very welcoming after a long day of traveling. There was even a bottle of maple syrup that was produced on the owners adjacent property. Every window had a view of the woods and the beautiful fall colors. The 2nd story deck, with a cup of coffee in the morning, was a perfect place to breathe in the fresh smell of the white pines. Even though we had very cool nights in the 30’s, the house was very comfortable in the morning, extremely well constructed. We only needed to use the electric baseboard heat, although there is a wood stove with more hardwood than you would ever need to burn on those very cold Adirondack mornings in the cold winter months.
The campfire area, which was one of our favorite places at the camp, is very large with enough wood provided for at least a week and a great place to end your day. We had planned on staying only 4 nights, but since we were enjoying our stay so much and had beautiful fall weather, we ended up renting the entire week. It has all the amenities you would need and more! The proximity of the camp to Paul Smith’s Interpretive Center ( VIC), less than ten minutes away, was an added bonus. We were able to get in many nice walks almost every evening on the many trails at the VIC. Speaking of trails, the 33 acres of the camp, offers a “maze” of trails which is an adventure in itself. We came across a large flock of turkeys on our hike through the woods near the rock wall. It’s proximity to Saranac Lake, Lake Placid, and the high peaks is an added feature.
The owners, Sheila and Bob, are extremely nice people and great hosts who have a wealth of information to offer those looking for things to do or places to go in the area. Sheila, who is a ADK 46er, can suggest many peaks to climb, depending on your level of experience or fitness. She recommended Mt. Azure, which offered a spectacular view once we reached the summit All in all, it was more than we anticipated and would definitely return to Camp Hatteras the next time we visit the Adirondacks. We would highly recommend this camp for anyone looking to get away from their busy schedule and who want the solitude of being in the woods yet having all the amenities you have at home.

A QUIET/SECLUDED, WELL KEPT CABIN

  • 5 of 5
Within 20-30 minutes of Saranac Lake/Lake Placid, this beautiful and well kept house really gave us some much needed rest from hustle/bustle of city life. The serenity of this place gave us the opportunity to meditate, explore scenery of the Adirondacks, and enjoy spending time together as a family. The property, nestled on 33 acres of woods, provided plenty of opportunity for the kids to explore and my wife and I some time alone. The owner Sheila, was our tour guide and gave us much needed suggestions of things to do and places to go, including the best restaurants in Saranac Lake/Lake Placid. She's also a "46er"-one who's climbed the 46 tallest mountains in the Adirondacks! We highly recommend this place to anyone who want to get away from city life and explore the outdoors.
