About the property

Miles of beautiful hiking/mt biking/xc skiing trails right out your front door!

This relaxing retreat was built to view the sun, the moon, wildlife, and the trees. Nestled in a mature, private pine forest, 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!

Had a great time at Camp Hatteras!

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I had a great time at Camp Hatteras. We enjoyed camp fires most nights of the week, and enjoyed exploring the property. We had many nights of stargazing, and even got up early on Saturday to enjoy the sunrise over the bog where we saw a dozen Canada geese take flight at the crack of dawn. We ventured to the Wild Center in Tupper Lake and hiked Mount Azure which was a quick half hour drive from Camp Hatteras. We had a blast on the go karts down Hobart road, and took our time getting lost in a corn maze after that.

Make sure to take time to check out The Shamrock, an unassuming but awesome bar and restaurant only about 20 minutes away.

The cabin was well equipped and clean upon our arrival. There are plenty of board games to enjoy up in the loft on a rainy day, and a tv although we never bothered to turn it on. Although the cabin is set back in the woods away from the road, there is still quite a bit of "road noise" from traffic going by on route 30. To me, that is the ONLY "minus" to this place.

Sheila was very personable over the phone and by e-mail and was quick to answer any questions we had. We would recommend Camp Hatteras to anyone and hope to stay here again!

Wonderful family vacation location

  • 5 of 5

Our family very much enjoyed our vacation here. The house came filled with all your necessary items, except food, which we shopped locally to stock the fridge. They even had kid friendly food bowls, children books, and lots of toys! We all enjoyed sledding and snowshoeing which was all provided for renters to use. Snowmobile trails are close by and my husband took advantage of the fresh snow! Sheila was so accommodating and made sure we had everything we needed. Wonderful family vacation in the beautiful Adirondacks!

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!
