Augur Lake cabin description

Nestled just off the shores of Augur Lake in the Adirondack Park, this cabin provides a warm relaxed environment for the vacationer looking to unwind from their usual hectic pace of life. Augur Lake offers an excellent fishery including a healthy population of pike, large mouth bass, small mouth bass, perch and crappie. Personal watercraft are banned from use on this lake allowing a quiet, laid-back atmosphere for those who enjoy paddling the days away. A Canoe, paddles, life vests and some fishing tackle are provided at the camp. There is a spacious 16' x 4' dock for sunning or swimming and boarding the canoe. If you have your own boat, there is a place to launch with advance notice and it can be docked at the camp for the duration of your stay with advance notice and a small additional fee. The main water source for showering and cleaning is lake water, however there is a kitchen tap that provides a well-water source for cooking and drinking. The master bedroom offers a queen size bed and the spare room offers a set of bunk beds plus a futon for an extra guest. Parking is limited to only two cars at this property due to limited space between the camp and the lake. Enjoy your days in the area by exploring near-by attractions such as AuSable Chasm, Poko-Moonshine, The Crux, Kayaking on the AuSable River from the Kayak Shack, and more. For those rainy days, board games are provided for extra family fun. A Welcome Guide is provided at the camp that includes information on local restaurant options, tourist attractions and shopping locations. Linens are provided for your stay and local phone service in case your cell does not work while on the property. This is a cabin designed for relaxing your days away. The decor is distinctly Adirondack in style and intended to add to the atmosphere that mother nature has supplied for us. I encourage you to come and experience our Augur Lake Escape and return to your usual pace of life refreshed and rejuvenated.

                  Augur Lake is situated just a short 90 minutes north of Albany in the midst of the Adirondack Park and just miles from Lake Champlain. The Adirondacks offer endless day-trip activities for those who enjoy exploring the outdoors. Lake Placid is a short 45 minute drive and offers all the excitement of exploring the Olympic venues, fining dining, shopping, and much more. With access to thousands of acres of state-owned land right outside your door the Adk. mountains are an excellent opportunity for hiking and paddling at no additional expense to traveler. Just 5 minutes from the house, guests can enjoy the wonder of the AuSable Chasm. The Chasm offers hiking, rafting, tubing and new last year, rappelling tours deep into the chasm walls. 20 minutes to the north is Plattsburgh if rainy days give you cabin fever. For live summer theater, options include the Essex Community theater, as well as the Westport Depot Theater. Plattsburgh offers larger box stores, movie theaters, bowling, skate parks and much more. There are so many ways to spend your time in the immediate area, however if you want to explore further, the ferry across Lake Champlain is only 5 minutes away to bring to Vermont. Once in Vermont, you can explore endless Vermont attractions including Stowe, Vermont Teddy Bear Factory, Shelburne Farms, Shelburne Museum, ECHO Science Center and much much more.

                  As one can see, we are centrally located to a vast array of activities that will allow your vacation to be all you want it to be....whether that means just sitting by the water and fishing the day away or exploring the wonders of the Adirondack Park and beyond.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: As owners we are two couples who have been best friends for years. One of us is a local couple and the other resides full-time in the Boston community. This camp is our personal little spot to escape. Our children (seven total) reunite at this spot to canoe, fish and sun on the beautiful island within view of the dock. Watching as they leap from the rocks into the water over and over again gives us as parents the hope that they will, one day, bring their own children to this lake to enjoy the Adirondacks. Both of our families have a history of law enforcement involvement and that is part of our bond of friendship. Our hope is that our visitors will enjoy and respect the camp as an opportunity to 'un-plug' from the world for just a little while and enjoy the simple pleasures of outdoors as we have. From nights around the camp fire, to days swimming, paddling, reading and fishing we trust you will thoroughly enjoy your privacy and time away.

                  Why the Owner Chose Augur Lake:
                  Augur Lake is a hidden Adirondack gem. Because there is no public access to the lake, the waters are accessible only to those who own property along the water's edge. This means that the lake is never 'busy' with boat traffic. The wildlife viewing includes beaver, eagles, porcupine, deer, turtles, water fowl, turkey and more. Augur Lake is the perfect example of heaven on Earth: 'where the water meets the mountains and the mountains meet the sky'. This property is unique from some rentals in that it provides the maximum in amenities at a very reasonable rental rate. Because we recognize that we only offer 10' of frontage(enough room for the dock and swimming) we have adjusted our rental rate to reflect that. We also strive, however to provide an atmosphere that reflects the nature of the setting and comforts of any hotel in the area. This camp is the perfect option for the vacationer looking for an Adirondack experience at a reasonable value.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  Our rental includes access to the lake via canoes and other small water craft, not just the chance to 'look' at the water. The camp furnishings are new and the kitchen /baths are completely updated. Our location is central to all the Adirondacks have to offer and within 5 minutes of the ferry to Vermont for additional exploring.
