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. You are welcome to bring your own kayaks or canoes, but we cannot no longer allow launching of boats that require a launch as there is no public launch at the lake the private party who used to allow launching at their property moved away. The main water source for showering and cleaning is lake water, however there is a bottled tap that provides spring water for 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.

About Sue Ann Carter
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 Sue Ann Carter chose Keeseville
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.
What makes this Cabin unique
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.

Cozy. A perfect staycation.
First, communication with Sue was awesome. This cottage was clean and comfortable and the kitchen had all you need. The lake was beautiful and peaceful. Close to Ausable Chasm which was the reason for our stay. There was a great heater in here which helped for the cold nights. Paddle boat and dock were awesome. We would stay here again if ever back in the area.
Once again it was a great week.The cabin is clean and comfortable! Easy place to rent and enjoy. I will be back next summer.
Clean, fully equip, & great!
The cottage had a lot to offer on the property. Having usage of the kayaks was a lovely addition! We found no trouble w/ our visit!
We are always happy to hear guests enjoyed their stay with us. The kayaks were a new addition this year and they seem to be a BIG hit. Glad to know that fun was had by all! Would love to host you again if you get the itch to return to the Adirondacks for another visit.
Had a great time on Augur Lake with our family
House was neat and clean. Directions were succinct and clear, and accomodations were comfortable for us. In Adk camps you expect mismatched flatwear, but there were no soup spoons and could have used more than 3 table knives. Fish were more than accomodating, and enthusiastically hit at almost every cast, thrilling both young granddaughters. Lake was uncrowded and we made numerous bird sightings. Never did figure out how to turn on light over dining table, though. Great time had by all anyway.
So happy that you were able to unplug and enjoy a week on the lake. That dining room light fixture switch is really well camouflaged behind the curtain/fridge. We will double check that all is fine with that switch yet today.
One of the reasons we initially purchased on Augur Lake was for the fishing and the privacy. The lake is never "busy" and it is great for families looking to spend quality time making memories. Thanks for the notes, we will be sure to replace those items that have "walked away" over the season of rentals. Again, so glad that you could join us this summer on Augur Lake!
Typical Adirondack Setting! Loons Included.
My wife & I enjoyed the beautiful Adirondack setting. Lake Auger was peaceful & quiet and we enjoyed listening to the Loons in the late afternoon and evenings as we sat out on the dock enjoying snacks and beverages. And kayaking around the lake was a treat seeing the beavers and their activities along with the Loons. Having the options of kayaks, canoe, paddle boat or floats was nice. The location was very convenient to spend two days at Ausable Chasm which is awesome, and just a 10 minute drive away. We thoroughly enjoyed that as well. The local brewery was also a treat, they had a nice sampling of their "home brew" and a great Taco truck there too and that was only 10 minutes away. Lake Champlain is a scenic 25 minute drive away and we spent one afternoon there, watching all the sail & speed boats out on the water as we chilled out sitting along the shore. As is typical out in the Adirondacks or any secluded woodsy setting there are critters and bugs but nothing that was a game stopper or irritating, You just have to understand they are there, you're in the woods. The cabin was nice. It had all the typical camp/ woodsy/ animal decorations inside and fit the environment perfectly. They have a nice little fire pit out front which we enjoyed sitting around one of the cooler evenings. We never used the BBQ grill but it is there. There was also a deck with table, chairs & umbrella but we never used that either preferring to sit down by the lake on the dock. It was a nice getaway.
Cozy, Clean, Secluded
My family and i had a great time here
We had to leave early due to a family emergency and the first thing we said was lets go back one day.
If you're looking to get away from technology and spend quality time with loved ones I'd highly reccomend it.
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.
