Augur Lake cabin description

Nestled in a private community, hidden in the forest with views of
the Mountains and the Lake, Pocomoonshine, once discovered
becomes a cherished sanctuary, many times for many generations.
Hark back to a former time, a simpler time, far away yet close to everything.

Our year round camp entices everyone with it’s rustic charm, multilingual library, large country kitchen, screened porch and garden with Adirondack chairs. Carefully restored and refurbished, keeping the antiquarian charm yet
offering modern comforts. There is a wood stove to take the chill out of the cool nights and a Hot Tub to warm up your spirit. Plentiful windows frame a landscape wherein you feel in concert with and cradled by Mother Nature.
Our camp is located about 80' from the shore, accessible by foot path. Enjoy your morning coffee, fish or watch the sunset from our private dock.
You never want to leave and always await your return.


Great Room - Library: The Queen Size Futon is located in the Living Room / Library. Here one (or two or three) sleep in this great, open room with high ceilings, twin paddle fans overhead, wood stove with a blazing fire, and a dream catcher to protect your sleep. The atmosphere is of so many adventures in hundreds of books waiting on the shelves, antique lamps providing the light, animal masks adorning the wall. Share scary stories or listen to gentle lullabies of Chopin played on the LP record player. Where will you choose to go in your dreams tonight?

Kitchen: The heart of the house is the good ole’ country kitchen. It is warm and inviting for gathering together or sitting in solitude on the window seat and taking in the beauty of nature while indulging in the aroma of the herb garden just beyond.
The butcher block with pots hanging above calls to the chef to create that memorable meal. He(She) will find no tools lacking for that task. The antique cherry dinner table is a perfect place for the romantic dinner for two or for a whole family to have an evening of talks and games.

Porch: Fresh breezes blow in from the adjacent enclosed, screened porch - A perfect place to greet the morning, or soak in the rays of the setting sun. The colorful radiance of the room hugs you with joy and happiness. The Mexican tile table, wrought iron cushioned couch and chairs, and swinging chair create the atmosphere to inspire the artist within you.
Songs about children have been written on this porch.

Special accents include bamboo shades, red velvet curtains draping the closet, plenty of pillows and candles create an alluring atmosphere that stimulates all the senses. The cheerful resplendence of the Second Bedroom heralds the child within each of us. The red wall creates a perfect background for the log bed covered with a patchwork quilt and cacophony of pillows. One can’t wait to hug the Rag Doll or play with the wood carved horse. The hand woven carpet placed on the rustic hardwood floor offers a perfect spot for such play....moreless

              Car: Necessary

              Augur Lake is sequestered betwixt two miracles of nature,

              Poke-O-Moonshine Mountain, with 1100 Million year-old walls, resembling a Gothic Cathedral and Ausable Chasm, with its intense energy from the whitewater coursing rapidly through the deep gorge.

              We are in the heart of the Bread Basket of the Adirondacks, where valley farms offer organic eggs, dairy and produce biodynamically grown. There are apple orchards too!

              High Peaks form the backdrop for these vistas, inviting hikes and explorations of Swimming Holes, Many Falls, High Falls Gorge, Natural Springs, Caves, Lakes and Rivers.

              On Lake Champlain, only a few miles away, there is a private beach and boat launch for our community, as well as a ferry to Burlington, Vermont.

              Thirty minutes to Whiteface Mountain.

              Forty minutes to the Olympic Village of Lake Placid.

              Ninety Minutes to Montreal, the second largest French City (after Paris) in the World-with all its sophistication, arts and culinary delights.

              Other Activities: Canoeing, Kayaking, Rock Climbing, Horseback Riding, Wildlife Viewing, Cross Country Skiing, Ice Skating, Snowmobiling, Museums,

              Year Purchased: 2007

              About the owner: Nature, Adventure, Tranquility, Beauty and Comfort. Inspired by my own travels and world explorations, with a desire to share some of my favorite and special places with others, I created OurSecretGetaways. It is with pleasure that I offer you the opportunity to create your own experiences and adventures within our getaways. Being traveler myself, I know what I appreciate when I stay at different destinations. My goal is to use my traveler's intuition to provide the best atmosphere for our guests. I strive to create in each of our retreats a unique experience, reflecting the ambiance of the area, the cultural character and natural environment. My joy springs from feeling the soul of each area and property and infusing that spirit artfully throughout the home, the landscaping and amenities provided. A confluence of nature's beauty with interior design is communicated through color harmony, original art, music collections, and the intimate warmth of a loved home. Whichever secret getaway that you may choose be assured that you will find a home where you can fully relax, be comfortable and bask in the sensual pleasures of the unique esthetic aspects of both the interior décor and the charming gardens, while drawing strength and energy from the breathtaking beauty of the surrounding habitat.
