About the Property

4 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, sleeps 16

Hunters are welcome, although there is no hunting permitted on the property or adjacent properties, there are many acres of State lands within 15 to 30 mins.

Prom groups are welcome at $90 per head per night. Adult supervision will be nearby. Security deposit of $2,000 required.

Camp Ankabos is located at the end of a 1/2 mile private road at the foot of Crane Mountain. The pristine Garnet Lake is a 5 minute drive and Gore Mountain downhill skiing is a 15 minute drive.

The Camp overlooks a mountain pond with a picnic area that is part of the 45 acres owned by the Buckskin Valley Homeowners' Association. The pond is very cold as it is spring fed, so it isn't really a swimming pond. The private lane is maintained by the Association. The seven homes in the Association are all second homes and there are rarely many people around. There are hiking and snowshoe/ski trails on the 45 acres.

The popular hiking trail to Crane Mountain is nearby and in the summer the kayaking and swimming at Garnet Lake is just superb.

Decorated in true Adirondack camp style with leather couches and a collection of antique taxidermy.

Large Jacuzzi tub in Master Bathroom suite.

Other Amenities

  • Snowshoe/Cross Country Ski Trails Camp Ankabos is part of the Buckskin Valley Association which owns 45 acres of common land. Several landowners in the area have given each other access to their property for snowshoeing and cross country skiing. NO SNOWMOBILING is allowed on the trails. When the snow is good, one of the property owners grooms the trails for cross country skiing. Groomed or not, they are still fine for snowshoes (and dogs). You can rent snowshoes and skis at Beaverbrook – mentioned below. If you decide to use these trails, it is strictly AT YOUR OWN RISK. They are not part of my property or part of the rental. There is a trail map on the kitchen counter at the Camp. The closest trailhead is a sharp right turn into the woods at the top of the Camp driveway. ...moreless

The area around the Gore Mountain Ski Resort is classic Adirondack country. Gore Mountain is a 15 minute drive away. In addition to the winter activities at Gore Mountain, there is kayaking and hiking very close by. In the winter, there are snow shoeing and cross country ski trails right out the back door of the property and many more in the vicinity. The property sits at the base of Crane Mountain (a popular mountain to hike), near the beautiful, largely undeveloped, Garnet Lake.

It is a very peaceful and secluded setting. Perfect for letting the children and pets run free.
