Pocomoonshine Camp – Rustic Jewel on the Lake
Nestled in a private community, hidden in the forest with views of the Mountains and the Lake, Pocomoonshine, once discovered becomes a cherished sanctuary. Once inside, you’ll feel that it’s OK to let go, and just let your Soul be cradled by Mother Nature. Hark back to a former time, a simpler time, far away yet close to everything. Our year round camp entices everyone with its rustic charm, multilingual library, large country kitchen, screened porch and yard with Adirondack chairs. Carefully restored and refurbished, keeping the antiquarian charm yet offering modern comforts. There is a wood stove to take the chill out of the cool nights and a Hot Tub to warm up your spirit. Enjoy your morning coffee, fish or watch the sunset from our private dock. You never want to leave and always await your return.
Augur Lake is sequestered betwixt two miracles of nature, Poke-O-Moonshine Mountain, with 1100 Millions old walls, resembling a Gothic cathedral and Ausable Chasm, with its intense energy from the whitewater coursing rapidly through the deep gorge. We are in the heart of the Bread Basket of Adirondacks, where valley farms offer organic eggs, dairy and produce bio-dynamically grown. There are apple orchards too! High Peaks form the backdrop for these vistas, inviting hikes and explorations of Swimming Holes, Many Falls, High Falls Gorge, Natural Springs, Caves, Lakes and Rivers. On Lake Champlain, only a few miles away, there is a private beach and boat launch for our community, as well as a ferry to Burlington, Vermont.
Thirty minutes to Whiteface Mountain. Forty minutes to the Olympic Village of Lake Placid. Ninety Minutes to Montreal, the second largest French City (after Paris) in the World-with all its sophistication, arts and culinary delights. Ninety minutes to World Famous Saratoga Springs Thoroughbred Racing and Performing Arts Center.
The heart of the house is the good ole' country kitchen. It is warm and inviting for gathering together or sitting in solitude on the window seat and taking in the beauty of nature. The butcher block with pots hanging above calls to the chef to create that memorable meal. He(She) will find no tools lacking for that task.
The antique cherry dinner table is a perfect place for the romantic dinner for two or for a whole family to have an evening of talks and games.
Fresh breezes blow in from the adjacent enclosed, porch -
A perfect place to greet the morning, or soak in the rays of the setting sun. The colorful radiance of the room hugs you with joy and happiness. The Mexican tile table, wrought iron cushioned couch and chairs, and swinging chair create the atmosphere to inspire the artist within you. Songs about children have been written on this porch.
Both Bedrooms feature Queen Size Beds fitted with brand new orthopedic mattresses. All bedding and linens are chosen for their high quality and esthetic appeal. Creating a pleasing and comfortable nest was our goal.
The Master Bedroom whispers of an enchanted nest. A synergy of Nature, Native American art, bamboo shades, red velvet curtains draping the closet, plenty of pillows and dimmed light create an alluring atmosphere.
The cheerful resplendence of the Second Bedroom heralds the child within each of us. The log bed covered with a patchwork quilt and cacophony of pillows. One can't wait to hug the Rag Doll or play with the wood carved horse. The hand woven carpet placed on the rustic hardwood floor offers a perfect spot for such play.
The Queen Size Futon is located in the Living Room / Library. Here one (or two or three) sleep in this great, open room with high ceilings, twin paddle fans overhead, wood stove with a blazing fire, and a dream-catcher to protect your sleep. The atmosphere is of so many adventures in hundreds of books waiting on the shelves, antique lamps providing the light, animal masks adorning the wall. Share scary stories or listen to gentle lullabies of Chopin. Where will you choose to go in your dreams tonight?
There is a full tub with a shower in the bathroom.
