Spring! Dizzying views of the Hudson River! Sweet cabin modest in scale, simple and pure to not detract from the richness of the views, offering a fresh, invigorating sense of just what is needed, nothing more. The rugged primitive siding was harvested from on-site cedar trees; the knotty pine interior was locally sourced. Friends gifted a claw foot tub and historic farm house sink. Enjoy a hot tub experience in our new Japanese spa. Wood fired pizza offered most nights.

The space
The living room offers incredible views of the Hudson River and the meadow below. There are leaded glass windows in the bay window, a large comfortable vintage sofa and simple decorations. The bedroom offers a queen bed with duvet covers and beautiful east facing views of the Hudson River. There is an antique vanity with vessel sink, antique oriental rugs and Asian artwork. The bathroom has a claw foot tub with shower hoop and glass vessel sink. There is plenty of hot water, towels and soap. The kitchen is fully stocked with stove, fridge, microwave and sink. There are beautiful copper pans to cook with, plates, glasses and silverware.

This beautiful cabin is located hundreds of feet above the Hudson River and offers dizzying views and great privacy. The cabin is not set a top the highest point of the land, where it would be fully exposed, but partway down, allowing the woods behind to form privacy and to shelter the house. Gaze out at the wildness of the site from a sheltered spot. Enjoy spectacular views of the Hudson River, a cedar forest and wildflower meadow.

There is a fire pit with Adirondack chairs. We provide dry firewood and kindling for our guests. Stargazing at night is amazing as there is no light pollution.

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.

Join us for wood-fired pizza! On the upper portion of our land off Cemetery Road, we have a wood fired pizza oven. Here’s how it works. We make and provide the dough, and guests bring their own toppings. We fire up the wood-fired pizza in the late afternoon. By the time the wood fire has died down, the oven is about 800 degrees. From six-thirty to seven-thirty, guests come to the pizza pavilion with their toppings and we help them cook their pizzas. Because the oven is so hot, the pizzas cook in about three minutes. Lots of fun! Requested of donation of $8 for firewood, dough and maintenance, please. Let us know if you plan to join us. We also have toppings if you don't wish to bring your own.

Summers are wonderful with cool mountain breezes, nearby lakes and the Hudson River to swim, bathe or fish in. Fall is glorious with all the trees turning color.
As for things to do in the area, there is white water rafting in the beautiful clean Hudson River right at the bottom of our hill offered by various kayaking companies, hiking spots galore, a nearby gorgeous completely undeveloped lake called 13th Lake, dining in North Creek or nearby Garnet Hill Lodge and great daytrips to nearby Lake George, Blue Mountain Lake, Lake Placid and such.

A great deal of thought and energy went into planning this cabin. Like a tree grabbing a roothold in the slope, reaching down for water and minerals and arching up toward the available sunlight, a house must begin and grow from its site. When the design of a house has grown out of the uniqueness of the site, it will seem as natural and as integral a part of the whole as trees are a part of the forest. When the house becomes a part of the land, the site can be fully inhabited.

This property is located at the end of a quiet country road and abuts forty acres of land owned by your host where we offer glamping tents and two other cabins. Please take a look at these listings and reviews to get a better sense of what we offer. The property is an easy scenic drive up 87 from NYC.

Stretched over the 40 acres we own, we have four glamping tents (Glamp Richard, Glamp Suzanne, Glamp Thomas and Glamp Bernice) and five cabins (Bird Camp, Farmstand, Camp HudsonView, Camp TwoSome and our new Camp Lillian). All are listed on this site.

If you arrive late, the house will be unlocked and lights on for you.



MORE HISTORY: Since 1910, my family has owned 8 acres of land on the upper part of the land. When my great-grandparents built the original camp (Bird Camp), there were gorgeous views looking all the way down to the Hudson River. Then when people stopped owning grazing animals, and as it then became expensive to keep the meadows mowed, the trees grew up and the views were all lost. When 32 acres of land below us became available several years ago, with financial help from my brother, I purchased the land and over several winters, I had the property strategically logged to open up again the beautiful south and east facing views of Gore Mountain, Moxon Mountain and the Hudson River below.

Originally I intended to return to my former business life I'd led downstate and to build vacation homes for sale. As things have worked out, my plan now is to build simple beautiful rental cabins and retain the property for retirement income, and so that I might leave an income producing estate to my daughters.

I had an amazing winter of 2016 and 2017 building this camp. By December, the framers had completed the structure, the windows were in and I was able to keep warm with temporary heat all winter as I spent months happily finishing the inside of the "camp."

Guest access
Camp HudsonView is a private cabin with one bedroom and one bathroom.

If you'd care to wander up the road and see the upper part of the property, you may enjoy seeing our free ranging chickens and ducks, gardens, orchards and meadows.

Other things to note
Our cleaning check list includes: Windows left open between bookings, wearing disposable gloves while cleaning, cleaning and vacuuming then disinfecting frequently touched surfaces (doorknobs, faucets, etc) with diluted household bleach and disposable cloths and leaving plenty of paper towels, disinfectant wipes, and other disposable cleaning supplies for our guests.

If Camp HudsonView is rented for the dates you have in mind, please take a look at our newly built and just listed Camp TwoSome which is quite similar.

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
