Peru House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Camp with 100 ft. Private Sand Beach

Pine Beach Camp in the Adirondack Park of New York sits on one of the most exclusive sand beaches in the Champlain Valley. The quarter mile beach is bounded by the mouth of the Ausable River to the North and a cliff to the South and is only accessible by a private gravel road. The lake bottom is sandy and most residents walk around and enter the water with bare feet. Boats can be moored offshore within walking distance or pulled up on the beach. There is plenty to see and do from this location. Float a kayak, paddle board or row boat out on the lake or up the lazy Ausable River, go swimming, fishing or just relax on the patio or beach. At night, sit around a campfire on the beach and roast marshmallows. The location is also a perfect base from which to explore the ruggedly beautiful Adirondack Mountains. Lake Placid, site of the 1980 Olympic Games and in the heart of the Adirondacks is 39 miles away. Downtown Burlington, VT is a 1 hour ferry ride from Port Kent, NY (ferry accepts cars). From Burlington, the most scenic vistas Vermont has to offer are only a short drive away. The Amtrack Train station in Port Kent also provides access to and from Penn Station in NY as well as Montreal. Three public golf courses are located with in 8 miles with the nearest course within 3 miles. Ausable Chasm, a popular tourist attraction is only 3 miles distance.

The camp is well equipped and includes a washer and dryer.

Great place to unwind.

  • 4 of 5

My family and I had a great time, from enjoying camp fires on the beach, throwing the ball to our dog on the sand, and brewery hopping. Ausable Brewery is close by and had some great beers and nice chill vibe. The camp had what we needed for cooking and plenty of games for entertainment. Some parts of the camp building were a little beat up, but overall we were happy with our stay and the beach property.

Very Comfortable and functional Rental

  • 4 of 5

My friends and I rented Pine Beach Camp over Memorial Day weekend and we had a wonderful and comfortable stay in the rental. I have to first commend the owners of this rental, Karen & Jo - they are very responsive, clear with instructions and are lovely people.

The house is well equipped with all utensils, linens etc.and also comes with a washer and dryer. The grill and water-sporting equipment were in good shape. Keep your fingers crossed for good weather so you can maximize the cool equipment they have in their garage. The view of the lake from the house is lovely and the beach is very clean and well maintained.

FYI, the rental is a little outdated but overall very comfortable and functional. This was not a major concern for us as we had great weather 2/3 days and were out relaxing on the beach for most of the day, grilling and exploring the Ausable Chasm area.

Overall, Beautiful views and nice place. Will rent again if the opportunity arises.

We love everything about the place. It doesn't get any better than being right on the (private) beach. There is plenty of room in the house and you feel right at home. The neighbors are friendly and inviting. We all loved enjoying the privacy and amenities (kayaks, a canoe, a surf board, bikes, gas grill, etc.). The kids loved toasting S'mores by the fire on the beach and sitting around recalling family moments. The moonlight reflecting on the water and the countless stars are an awesome sight. The peace and tranquility is priceless.

Karol is a great owner. She is very friendly, accommodating and helpful. This is our second time renting and we absolutely love it. It's already a familiar place where we feel instantly at home. We love creating family memories in "our" little rental house on Lake Champlain!

2 weeks with family heals the soul

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time at White Pine Camp. The beach is huge and soft. The house is very nice and comfortable although I did not spend much time inside. There is a great place for evening bonfires. The water is shallow and sandy so the swimming is great. Spending time with the family was the best! We will be back!
