Wildflower meadows to wander, firepit for star gazing. Close to Gore Mountain and Garnet Hill Lodge for cross country skiing. Enjoy a hot tub experience in our Japanese spa!

The space
This adorable cabin offers beautiful mountains views, privacy and a unique space.

LAYOUT: The living room is charming with antique beam ceiling, leaded glass windows and whimsical décor. The full kitchen offers everything you need to cook and dine in style with a bank of windows soaking in the south facing views of Gore Mountain. There is a nice bathroom with shower, a queen bed in the loft and a single bed in an alcove off the living room. Outside are tables by the firepit where you will find dry firewood and kindling, a grill and a wildflower meadow.

AMENITIES:
Enjoy a hot tub experience! Built within a beautiful Japanese temple-like structure on one of the most beautiful spots of our land, our all natural no-chemical hot tub is a delightful way to start your morning, relax after hiking or winding down after dinner. Available for a private experience for $25 for an hour of wonderful relaxation. Let us know if you would like to book.

We have a happy lab dog Sammy who enjoys spending time with our guests. We have free ranging chickens and sweet waddling ducks.

Summers are wonderful with cool mountain breezes, swimming in the nearby 13th Lake, whitewater rafting in the Hudson River at the bottom of our hill and wildflower meadows to wander in. Fall is glorious with all the trees turning color.

LOCATION:
We are nearby the popular Revolution Rail for rail biking, and there are numerous whitewater rafting companies right at the bottom of our hill. We are an easy scenic drive up 87 from NYC. We’re five miles from the charming little town of North Creek, a half hour from Lake George and an hour and a half northwest of Albany.
Surrounded by meadows and gardens, located on family compound of historic cottages and four glamping tents, this beautiful property offers privacy, comfort and 40 acres of gorgeous land with walking trails.

If this listing is booked, take a look at Camp HudsonView, Bird Camp or Camp TwoSome … each unique in its own way and spectacular views. We also have four glamping tents: Glamp Richard, Glamp Suzanne, Glamp Thomas and Glamp Bernice.

Through lucky circumstances and financial help from my family, I own a precious 40 acres atop a mountain in the Adirondacks with a small cluster of buildings including my great-grandparents’ century-old Bird Camp, four glamping tents and several cabins I have built in the last few years. From early spring until the leaves change color in the fall, I have the honor to host vacationing guests who come to the Adirondack Mountains from all over the world, and who leave with generous notes of thanks and lovely reviews for having had the opportunity to live as I do with my children now, and as my grandparents and great-parents once did here. We treasure our farm-like setting reminiscent of an 1800’s farm with pleasant meadows, beautiful mountain views and brilliant star-filled nights, and I am grateful to my family for helping us preserve this special place. As a child, our family came here to this property for summer vacations just like the previous generations had. But owning property with multiple family members took its toll and the two camps (Bird Camp and Mullon Camp where we live) deteriorated --- no one wanted to share the costs of upkeep, taxes and improvement and soon it was only me who visited or tried to maintain things. It took 20 years but eventually I was able to buy out (or barter with ) all the other owners. Shortly thereafter, my husband and I got divorced, and I sought emotional and physical healing in the Adirondacks. Seven years ago, I moved from western Massachusetts to the mountains, put my daughters in the local school and got to work with my tools to make all the restorations and improvements. I tried a number of ways to earn a living up here (builder, real estate broker, etc), none of which panned out, but luckily I realized how many wonderful people long to visit the Adirondacks and stay in a cozy cabin. My father in the last year of his life financed construction of our four glamping tents, the Lodge and the Bath House. Then with financial help from my brother Thomas, I bought 40 acres of beautiful land abutting the original property. Gorgeous mountain views and open meadows were reclaimed by clearing trees, and the historic Shields Road which accesses this portion of the land has been rebuilt. Originally I intended to build single family homes for sale, but the evolved to retaining all the land the building, as finances permit, sweet rental cabins (Camp HudsonView and Camp TwoSome), walking trails and this year, a fabulous Japanese temple with a cedar hot tub. I am grateful that I’ve had fascinating professional and personal experiences. I’ve had the chance to build beautiful projects. I am lucky to live in an insanely beautiful wild place, and I have a small business offers interesting challenges and rewards. I spend the winter building rustic furniture for my rentals, plowing snow with my four wheeler and working as weather permits on the properties. And through the warm months, I have the opportunity to meet lovely people from all over the world who treasure what we have here. Our guests bring life, laughter, children and love to our quiet mountain retreat. Forward! Leslie Clement
