Nestled in the beauty of the Adirondack Mountains, our camp is centrally located giving easy access to Plattsburgh, Lake Placid, Burlington, Vermont and Montreal.

Locally, recreational opportunities abound. There is something for everyone!

Discover Ausable Chasm - a canyon of rock formed over 500 million years. Get wet as you snake through the cavern by raft or tube or explore the wonders down under at dusk by lantern...

Take a one hour ferry ride from Port Kent across Lake Champlain to beautiful Burlington. Spend the day shopping tax free or visit the Echo Lake Aquarium and Science Center and learn about the fish, amphibians, invertebrates and reptiles that call Lake Champlain their home.

How about a hike? From the beginner to the expert, the possibilities are endless. We are closest to Pocomoonshine, which boasts views of Vermont, Canada and the Adirondack High Peaks from its summit.

In less than an hour, be at the place where 'miracles are made,' Lake Placid, the site of the 1980 Winter Olympics and home of the Ironman Triathlon.

History buffs can explore the North Star Underground Museum in Keeseville to learn the history of fugitive slaves as they made their way through the Champlain Valley to Quebec or travel to Plattsburgh, where American Master Commandant Macdonough stopped the British Offense in its tracks during the War of 1812.

Year Purchased: 2006

About: We are the Lockwood Family from Queensbury, New York. We have travelled throughout our gorgeous nation but would be hard pressed to find a location more beautiful than the Adirondack Mountains.

Why Keeseville, NY, USA:
Mere words cannot begin to describe what Augur Lake means to us. It can be better expressed through the emotions that it evokes. Joy, solitude, peace, laughter, excitement, gratitude. To us, The Rustic Retreat on Augur Lake is a piece of heaven on Earth that we are blessed to own. We feel great joy that we are able to share our home with others. We hope that you too will be overwhelmed by the blessings of this place and experience the restfulness, calm and joy that it bestows upon us.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Augur Lake provides some of the best Bass fishing in the Adirondack Park. Because it is a private lake with no public access, only lake owners can enjoy the pristine waters of this Adirondack jewel. Boat traffic is light and no personal watercraft is allowed.
