The intersection of land and water is usually a very magical place. Our shore thing is just such a place. Our home is a Peaceful, Private, Scenic Lakefront Home on Augur Lake in upstate New York.
The house is a few miles from the Northway (Interstate 87) in Keeseville, NY.
Our lakeside cottage sits on approximately 3 acres of forested land that winds its way to over 490 feet of Augur Lake shoreline. The lake itself is approximately 400 acres in size and Our shore thing is a new home built in 2007 that offers tranquility, beauty and a chance to get away from it all. Our quaint cottage is perfect for couples or small families looking to combine lakeside living with the conveniences of a new house.
Whether you choose to sip your coffee on the wrap around porch, read a book in the screened in lakefront gazebo, or just breathe in the fresh air while wandering the property, guests here at Our shore thing will not see another home in sight, except for those homes located on the other side of the lake. Beautiful Augur lake contains no public access and no public boat ramps. In short, this body of water is used by only a handful of lucky Augur Lake property owners. The lake’s water quality is good and is stocked with smallmouth bass, yellow perch, walleye, northern pike, pumpkin seed and black crappie. Our lake shore also is habitat to a family of beavers, we enjoy watching them swim back and forth nearly every evening! The swimming directly on our shoreline is not ideal, there is milfoil we have tried unsuccessfully to groom our lake front the best we could. It is not swampy though And is certainly a nice spot to dip your feet from the dock or hop into one of many of our watercrafts and go out for an adventure, you can find plenty of places to further enjoy the water on this quiet adirondack lake.
If you are looking for rowdy parties, the bar scene and tee shirt shops, this is not the lake for you.
Our shore thing offers new appliances such as a full size oven and microwave oven as well as a washer and dryer. The kitchen is equipped with newer refrigerator, a coffee maker, toaster and all the utensils that you have in your own home. A queen size bed and walk in closet awaits guests in the master bedroom. Upstairs in the loft area, the kids will sleep soundly in two twin beds. A new queen size pull out couch in the Main living room as well as a new full size pull out sofa with inflateable air over spring mattress in the lower living space offers the opportunity for additional guests to enjoy the comforts of this house.
The (2) bathrooms offer a shower, toilet and sink. The cottage is equipped with a charcoal barbecue grill for those summer time cookouts. Guests are invited to use our dock that extends into Augur Lake and to make use of our kayak, canoe, row boat and paddle boat to explore the lake and catch some of the many types of fish that populate this body of water.
One of our favorite amenities Our shore thing has to offer is a 6 person Hot tub just out the back door of the home, a great way to unwind after a fun filled day of adirondack living!
Our shore thing is situated on a county maintained paved road and is less than ten minutes away from both a grocery store, hardware store and convenience stores.
Speaking of short distances, a fifteen minute drive from Our shore thing will bring guests to the either the Harmony Golf Club or the Adirondack Golf and Country Club. Fifteen minutes will also take you to the Ausable Chasm where guests can ride horses or tube down the Ausable River. In that same time frame, guests can drive to Lake Champlain and board the Port Kent Ferry which will transport guests and their vehicles to Burlington, Vermont, home of the University of Vermont and Burlington International Airport (BTV). From Burlington, numerous highways connect to the rest of historic New England.
A twenty minute drive from Our shore thing will take guests to Plattsburgh, NY, home to a regional mall, a large campus of Plattsburgh State University of New York and the Plattsburgh International Airport (PLB).
A thirty mile drive from the cottage will take guests to the majestic alpine village of Lake Placid, New York, home of the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympics. Whiteface Mountain provides winter sports enthusiasts with world class skiing and snowboarding.
A mere 80 miles to the North of Our shore thing lies the captivating European inspired city of Montreal, Quebec (bring your passports). Eighty miles to the South lies the summer tourist Mecca of Lake George, NY.
We invite you to enjoy Our shore thing for some well deserved relaxation. Use the cottage to recharge your batteries in a truly peaceful setting or use it as a centrally located base for exciting day-trips to New England, Canada or the Adirondack State Park. Either way, we think you will love this house, this lake and this region as much as we do. We could think of any number of great reasons for people to come and enjoy the Adirondacks at any time of the year we have four full beautiful seasons in upstate New York to explore and enjoy.
When we first saw this home we had to have it! Now we would love to share the beauty and peacefulness of the adirondacks with others.
Janette Meppen purchased this house in 2013
with 490 feet of lakefront a canoe, kayak, row boat and paddle boat
We absolutely loved our stay at this home. We spent so much time outside enjoying the views and the fresh air. We took a day trip to Montreal, which was a pretty easy drive, and the rest of the time we took advantage of the kayaks and the outdoor space. We will definitely come back again.
The property was clean, comfortable and decorated just like a cabin should be.
We had a great time! the property is as clean and updated as all the photos. The lake was amazing with great fall scenery it felt like our own private part of the wilderness. We also enjoyed nearby ( about 45 minutes ) Lake Placid shops , restaurants , breweries and Wineries Id recommend a whole day trip there. Also the " liquor locker " in the small town down the road was worth a stop if anybody is into craft and microbrews . I would recommend packing in groceries like we did though we didn't see any supermarkets close by. Our dog Jax absolutely loved the stay as well, very well suited for pets . We had plenty of space indoors for 2 adults and the pup thank god because we did get a lot of rain but we managed to still make the best of it . The home only has 1 true bedroom and then a open loft with twin beds plus the 2 sofa beds for those traveling with multiple guests . Tons of deck space and outdoor relaxing areas . Hopefully not our last trip to the Adirondacks and we would defiantly stay here again .
We had a wonderful time. The fishing was great. Caught Bass, large mouth and small mouth and a good number of Northern Pike. The house was very nice. We really enjoyed the Hot tube. Very beautiful area. Thanks.
Our family greatly enjoyed the week at the lake house - everything was as described and in apple pie order. The lake front was a delight, even better than expected. The woods are teeming with wildlife (saw a beaver twice) and it is a great place for nature lovers. The landlord is very responsible and easy to work with. I hope we get to rent this house again.
everything was top notch, I enjoyed the stay it was peaceful, and quiet with a lot to do with in a short distance.
This is the cleanest house we have ever rented. Accommodations are very comfortable, and everything in the listing is accurate. The hot tub is excellent. The pullout bed on the lower level has an incredible air mattress. We enjoyed boating and fishing and relaxing.
