Private and secluded, yet centrally located, Camp Hatteras is located seven miles north of Paul Smiths College on Rt. 30. 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 back country trails nearby. The Adirondack Park Visitors Interpretive Center is five miles away and is open year round with wonderful hiking, XC skiing, snowshoe trails and educational programs for the whole family. You’ll be 25 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 (the Wild Center) is 40 minutes away in Tupper Lake. 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 wood stove 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 wood stove, 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 back country roads and single-track. Designated horseback riding trail heads 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!Guest Access
You'll have 33 acres to explore and if you've forgotten any equipment for Adirondack adventures, just let your hosts know and chances are, they'll have some you can borrow.Interaction with Guests
Your hosts will be available 24/7 if you need anything. We live nearby.The Neighborhood
It's quiet, private, you won't see/hear anyone unless you want to...except for the deer that bed down for the night on the hill next to the cabin, the turkeys that wander through, or the local moose that the neighborhood sees except your hosts!Getting Around
You'll need your own car. If you'll be flying in, you can fly into SLK, rent a car, and Camp Hatteras is 15 minutes away. Plenty of parking, year round.Other Things to Note
Our rates drop after the first two nights, but no way to indicate that on this website. $600 for first two nights, $150/nt after that, or our weekly rate, whatever is least expensive for you. We do not allow cancellations for the summer/holidays, any other time, 90 days less fees. We rent Sat. to Sat. in the summer, check in 4pm/out 10am, the rest of the year we are pretty flexible. We do not charge a cleaning fee, we just ask that you clean up after yourselves. Everything that you'll need is here. All you have to do is bring your groceries, your family/friends and your adventurous spirit.
