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!

Had a great time at Camp Hatteras!

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

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


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

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

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!
