About Chris Simmons
Hi. We grew up blue collar camping in a tent with my cousin Matt who passed tragically 2 years ago. Together we grew to appreciate the great outdoors and fell in love with the Adirondacks. Matt saw the excavator clear the property but never saw the house built. We like to think his spirit is amongst us in the Adirondacks so we rightfully named the property "Camp Matty," in honor of him. We built this house brand new in 2014 for our family to enjoy the beautiful Adirondack Mountains. I drew the prints and did a great deal of the work myself including all the heating and plumbing. We liked the secluded wooded property with the mountains in the background yet the close proximity of being able to walk to town. The snowmobile trail is 1000 feet from the house so we can easily access the trails. We want to share the magic of Camp Matty with you so we can help keep our dream alive.
Chris Simmons purchased this House in 2014

We had a week long, four generation family getaway at Camp Matty. The spacious deck and wooded location were perfect. Listening to the birds and frogs and seeing the stars at night was enjoyed by all. The beds were very comfortable and the steam shower was amazing! Chris was very helpful and checked in to make sure everything was going well. Any issues or questions we brought to his attention were dealt with promptly. Nice relaxing feel within the house itself. The kids enjoyed the yard and surrounding woods.
Wow thank you so much Jessica! The photo of the 4 generations of your family on the staircase was beautiful! These are memories we love to see family have at Camp Matty! Thank you for staying with us and please come again!
Beautiful house awesome location !
This place was perfect great for skiing and snowmobiling . With a wonderful little town . Camp Maddie was a pleasure to come back to after a long day .
A Fantastic and private getaway~
We loved the place, easy wifi connect, and netflix was an unexpected surprise. It rained the whole time we were there but we didn't mind. There is a wood stove but we didn't need it at all. Chris was easy to work with as well. We can hardly wait until our next girls trip.... we're definitely planning on Camp Matty.
We love the Adirondacks and this cabin is located in a great spot to enjoy everything they have to offer. The amenities in the cabin were amazing and the owners were easy to work with. This doesn't even compare to our normal camping trips into the adirondacks, I'm sure we will be back in the future.
Thank you for staying with us Alex. Please come again.
Love the area. Very relaxing, enjoyed the Wild Life. Owner easy to contact
