About The Delarm Eckert Family
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.
Why The Delarm Eckert Family chose Paul Smiths
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!

We loved our stay! The cabin was super clean and its location wonderfully private. It is conveniently located near Lake Placid and all the hiking, fishing, and myriad attractions in that area. Sheila is very knowledgeable about all the great places to hike and fish that you may not find in any guide books. The owners were also extremely kind in spending time locating a very important valuable we left behind! Thank you all so much- God bless!
Camp Hatteras was an excellent choice for our family. The location was as expected, the house was clean and the property was just outstanding. Sheila was a great host, very friendly and made our family right at home. We walked the property, saw all the buildings and were very impressed with the lean-to. We would definitely stay there again.
Thanks Cory. It was great meeting your wonderful family! So fun to see you out exploring our 50 acre property and many of our hiking/biking trails. Would love to have you back some time at Camp Hatteras, or perhaps next time at the Overlook Lean-to for some great moon & star gazing. And, oh so many more mountains to climb and fire towers to explore :)
Our best to all of you!
Sheila & Bob
Camp Hatteras was beautiful and stunning!
We stayed here for five nights over Christmas Break and it was amazing! Me, my wife, our two kids, and my parents picked the Adirondack park for our vacation this year and while I was searching for places to stay this cabin caught my attention. I wish we could have spent more time at Camp Hatteras. The property is beautiful and the owners were extremely accommodating. They were helpful, approachable, and attentive to our needs. We will definitely be staying at this cabin the next time we visit the Adirondack park. I was very impressed with how well this property could fit into anyone's vision for a vacation. Either by just staying in the cabin to relax, exploring the property and all it has to offer, or visiting local attractions. It was secluded just enough to have a feeling of privacy, but not so much as to make it a hassle to get out and see what all the park has to offer.
Fall Foliage Magic
Sheila is the sweetest host ever! When arriving to the cabin we were blown away by the beauty of not only the house but the property. The trails on the property are gorgeous. Something that was extremely neat was the fire pit that had a tarp over the wood, a lighter, and a paper with lighting instructions for guests who dont know how to start a fire! The homemade syrup was delicious! This place really felt like home. Sheila provides so many magazines about what there is to do in the adirondacks. She also made a binder of her favorite places to go whether it be hikes or restaurants... this was so helpful. It is close driving to so many activities. We drove 50 minutes to the high falls gorge, 10 minutes to The Vic which has some awesome hikes. 30 minutes to Azure another beautiful hike. The town of saranac lake is very cute and very close as well. I cant wait to come back!!
Genuine Adirondack Experience
Congratulations on finding this amazing cabin. If its free on your dates, book now. There is nothing more Adirondack then staying amongst the pines on 30 acres at a place that has its own sugar shack(meaning they make maple syrup). Not only that the family is well versed in the area, and can easily help point you in the right direction... This is a genuine Adirondack treasure, dont pass this one up!
Love our time spent at Camp Hatteras
This was our 4th year staying at Camp Hatteras and look forward to our next visit. The cabin is always spotless and very neat and comfortable. It’s well stocked with pots, pans, dishes, spices, soaps, etc. All that is needed is for you to just bring some food and beverages.
The owners, Shelia and Bob, are very friendly and easy to work with and are close by if anything is needed. They’re extremely knowledgeable of the area and offer great suggestions whether it’s paddling, mountain climbing, a casual hike, or just about anything you need to know about the Adirondacks! We climbed a couple of mountains in the area during our stay.
They’ve developed a nice map of their 33 acres that includes many marked hiking trails and even a mtn bike loop if you want to stay close to camp and do some exploring. The campfire area, where we’ve enjoyed many fires, is very large with plenty of comfortable Adirondack chairs for seating. There’s also a good supply of firewood available for your campfires.
The camp is a short scenic drive less than 20 minutes from Saranac Lake’s many restaurants and shops. Lake Placid is only slightly further. One of our favorite places to go for a leisurely hike is at Paul Smiths College’s VIC five minutes from Camp Hatteras. It offers some great peaceful hiking trails through woods and around ponds and bogs. It also offers some of the best cross country and snowshoe trails in the Adirondacks.
We always enjoy and look forward to our next visit to Camp Hatteras. Highly recommended!
