About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Full Bath, Sleeps Six

Nestled in a private community, hidden in the forest with views of

the Mountains and the Lake, Pocomoonshine, once discovered

becomes a cherished sanctuary, many times for many generations.

Hark back to a former time, a simpler time, far away yet close to everything.

Our year round camp entices everyone with it’s rustic charm, multilingual library, large country kitchen, screened porch and great outdoors 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. Boulders, woods and nature surround the house. You can gaze at the lake from the kitchen, living room and the porch. The bedrooms are located in the back of the house with views of trees. There is definitely something very special about Pocomoonshine Camp, wherein you feel in concert with and cradled by Mother Nature. I always feel like I'm entering another dimension when I'm there, as if I'm going back in time. It is very remote and quiet, yet quite close to many attractions including the Ausable Chasm and Lake Champlain. There is plenty of space for pets to be free and roam in the wild.

We are in a micro-neighborhood of several camps, on a dead-end dirt road. Our camp is located about 80' from the shore.

To access our private dock you have to cross the dirt road and follow the foot path along the side of the fence on the left. There you will find our rowboat, canoe and the bench, (4 kayaks are in the garage).

You can swim right of the dock, we must tell you, though, that our favorite spot for swimming is off the small island, which is just a paddle away. You might also enjoy the sandy, guarded community beach in Port Douglas, on Lake Champlain.

The few neighbors that you might encounter are very friendly and respectful of privacy, if you choose to remain remote. However, in the past, some of our guests have become very close friends with neighbors, enjoying entertaining each other.

Auger Lake is a private-access Lake only and excellent for fishing or exploring in the kayak or canoe. In the west it connects to Mud Pond, an incredibly secluded place where you can spy on birds, turtles and beavers. Bald eagles and loons were spotted here last Summer.

Yes, our Hot Tub is usable year round. It is nestled in the woods at the back of the property, so you can fully immerse yourself in the magic of the environment.

You never want to leave and always await your return.

Great Room - Library: 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 played on the LP record player. Where will you choose to go in your dreams tonight?

Kitchen: 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.

Porch: Fresh breezes blow in from the adjacent enclosed, screened 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.

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.

***A note to very tall people; Please be aware that, as the camp is an original, the roof in the back of the house is sloping creating sloping ceilings in both bedrooms. For some that is cozy and charming for some it can be challenging.

Guestbook comments from the manager


Our third time at Pocomoonshine, what a special place. Our hectic ‘life’ goes away as we are secluded and cozy here. We spent most of Sunday on snowshoes enjoying the winter wonderland. We found Cub Mnt. Trail on the other wise of the lake. The views are spectacular in this area.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful camp.

Better than we hoped for

  • 5 of 5

Pocomoonshine was inviting from the moment we entered...clean, charming and organized. Friendly little touches were everywhere and made us feel both at home and also far, far away. We'll be back! Kathy

This was a perfect getaway for the weekend with our four-legged kiddos. 🐾❤️

  • 4 of 5

Camp Pocomoonshine was a great place to unplug and let loose. Renata was very respondsive to messages. We spent time by the fire, but we would have loved to have a couple big, cut pieces so we didn’t have to feed the fire so often. The grill was so nice for our venison and pork chops. The butchery is a small, self-serve freezer with very yummy cuts to choose from. We didn’t get a chance to check out the brewery (which is also dog friendly!) because they were at a Brew and Chew. Pocomoonshine was a great climb with amazing views and so was the Flume Knob climb! We did an entire 500-piece puzzle (missing a couple pieces) which may seem minute, but something I haven’t taken the time to enjoy in a very long time. We only go places our dogs are welcome as they are our kids, and the camp was perfect for them. We even had a doggie friend come visit. ADVICE: bring bug spray! They’re fiesty. Renata’s camp is very well stocked and even saved us on a couple things we forgot. Overall, this camp was great with lots of character! Thank you, Renata.

Truly a unique eclectic space in a beautiful natural setting

  • 5 of 5

This special little cabin nestled on the heart of the Adirondaks is nothing short of a piece of art. Renata is an artist and the cabin is the palate. Everything is perfect and I'm sure every person who stays there fits right in and feels as if it were decorated for them. We did at least. Great location from which to plan day trips to see the surrounding attractions. Can't wait to get back there!

Perfect Adirondack Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We are Adirondack frequenters and usually tent camp, but this time we decided to luve it up and rent this wonderful cottage to stay in. It was perfect! All of the ammenities are provided from towels and robes to walk out to the hot tub to fiahing gear and boats to head out on the lake. They really thought of everything. Before even leavong we talked about the people we want to bring here in tue future. Only wish we could have stayed longer. We will definitely rent this place again!

very charming cabin.

  • 5 of 5

It was a very charming place to stay. We rented this cabin as a mommy's getaway and it was perfect, cozy and relaxing. We went on the off season weekend so there was no one else really around so we were really able to relax and enjoy the beautiful view of the lake and the tranquility of the cabin.

Car: necessary

Augur Lake is sequestered betwixt two miracles of nature,

Poke-O-Moonshine Mountain, with 1100 Million year-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 the Adirondacks, where valley farms offer organic eggs, dairy and produce biodynamically 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.

Other Activities: Canoeing, Kayaking, Rock Climbing, Horseback Riding, Wildlife Viewing, Cross Country Skiing, Ice Skating, Snowmobiling, Museums,
