Camp TwoSome: Privacy, A Babbling Brook & Views of Gore
Delightful little newly built cabin with beautiful mountain views offers privacy and sounds of the brook below. Camp TwoSome was built for just two (or maybe three) ... cozy, sweet and lovely.
Enjoy gorgeous mountains views of the Gore Mountain range in this brookside newly built cabin.
Camp TwoSome is a sweet “new old” cabin is modest in scale, simply furnished so to not detract from the richness of the views. A fresh, invigorating sense of “just what is needed, nothing more.” The cabin was designed and hand crafted by its owner Leslie and her small team of tradesmen during the winter of 2018. The rugged primitive siding was harvested from on-site cedar trees, and the knotty pine interior trim was locally sourced.
The cabin offers lovely views of the Gore Mountain range and the meadow below. There is a cozy bay window where one could read, or sleep. The bay window overlooks a brook far below with a beautiful canopy of trees above.
There is a queen bed with duvet covers and beautiful east facing views of the mountains. Vintage oriental rugs, beautiful drapes and antique lamps to enjoy …
The bathroom has a nice shower and vanity. There is plenty of hot water, towels, soap, shampoo and conditioner for your use.
The kitchen is fully stocked with a stove, an undercounter fridge, toaster, coffee making things and of course a sink. There are good pans to cook with, plates, glasses and silverware.
Enjoy a hot tub experience! Built within a beautiful Japanese temple-like structure on one of the most beautiful spots of our land, our all natural no-chemical hot tub is a delightful way to start your morning, relax after hiking or winding down after dinner. Available for a private experience for $25 per person for an hour of wonderful relaxation
SUMMER ONLY: Join us for wood-fired pizza! On the upper portion of our land off Cemetery Road, we have a wood fired pizza oven. Here’s how it works. We make and provide the dough, and guests bring their own toppings. We fire up the wood-fired pizza in the late afternoon. By six, the wood fire has died down and the oven is about 800 degrees. From six to seven-thirty, guests come to the pizza pavilion with their toppings and we help them cook their pizzas. Because the oven is so hot, the pizzas cook in about three minutes. Lots of fun! Requested of donation of $8 ($5 for children) for firewood, dough and maintenance, please. Let us know if you plan to join us.
A great deal of thought and energy went into planning this cabin. Like a tree grabbing a roothold in the slope, reaching down for water and minerals and arching up toward the available sunlight, a house must begin and grow from its site. When the design of a house has grown out of the uniqueness of the site, it will seem as natural and as integral a part of the whole as trees are a part of the forest. When the house becomes a part of the land, the site can be fully inhabited.
This beautiful cabin offers dizzying views and privacy. The cabin is not set a top the highest point of the land, where it would be fully exposed, but partway down, allowing the woods behind to form privacy and to shelter the house. Gaze out at the wildness of the site from a sheltered spot. Enjoy spectacular mountain views of the Hudson River and wildflower meadow. The cabin abuts a delightful brook on one side which roars in the spring and trickles all summer.
There is a fire pit with Adirondack chairs. We provide dry firewood and kindling for our guests. Stargazing at night is amazing as there is no light pollution.
Summers are wonderful with cool mo
untain breezes, nearby lakes and the Hudson River to swim, bathe or fish in. Fall is glorious with all the trees turning color.
As for things to do in the area, there is white water rafting in the beautiful clean Hudson River right at the bottom of our hill offered by various kayaking companies, hiking spots galore, a nearby gorgeous completely undeveloped lake called 13th Lake, dining in North Creek or nearby Garnet Hill Lodge and great daytrips to nearby Lake George, Blue Mountain Lake, Lake Placid and such.
This property is located at the end of a quiet country road and abuts forty acres of land owned by your host where we offer glamping tents and two other cabins. Please take a look at these listings and reviews to get a better sense of what we offer.
The property is an easy scenic drive up 87 from NYC. If you arrive late, the house will be unlocked and lights on for you.
Since 1910, my family has owned 8 acres of land on the upper part of the land. When my great-grandparents built the original camp (Bird Camp), there were gorgeous views looking all the way down to the Hudson River. Then when people stopped owning grazing animals, and as it then became expensive to keep the meadows mowed, the trees grew up and the views were all lost. When 32 acres of land below us became available several years ago, with financial help from my brother, I purchased the land and over several winters, I had the property strategically logged to open up again the beautiful south and east facing views of Gore Mountain, Moxon Mountain and the Hudson River below.
Originally I intended to return to my former business life I'd led downstate and to build vacation homes for sale. As things have worked out, my plan now is to build simple beautiful rental cabins and retain the property for retirement income, and so that I might leave an income producing estate to my daughters.
I had a wonderful winter of 2018 working with my small crew to build this camp. By December, the framers had completed the structure, the windows were in and I was able to keep warm with temporary heat all winter as we spent months happily finishing the inside of the "camp."
Leslie's place was awesome! The setting is gorgeous, and the cabin is perfect for relaxing. We will definitely be back!
Our stay here was short but pleasant. The views from the cabin are beautiful and we had everything we needed. Town was only an 8 minute drive away with several nice shops and eateries. Nearby hikes and we did the railroad cycling that was also nearby. A very nice mini getaway with a gorgeous view!
Starry nights. Wine by the campfire. Breath taking views. These are all the things you get from Camp Twosome. It is a charming cabin with big windows facing a view you will never forget. You will eat dinner on a beautiful blue and white enamel table with comfortable chairs. There is a window seat area for reading or placing your luggage. The kitchen with a small refrigerator, full stovetop and oven, toaster and coffee maker, make it easy to prepare a meal... Or you can use the charcoal grill outside. If you need a weekend getaway that is close to things like kayaking, hiking, or the Revolution Rail bike experience then this is a great cabin choice for you!
This place is a gem. Sweet, romantic cottage with charming details, completely off the grid, perfect for a getaway in the Adirondacks. Leslie gave excellent directions and answered questions quickly. We hope to be back soon!
My husband and I, and our two dogs, had a wonderful weekend at Leslie's place. She was a great hostess, and provided all amenities we needed to feel comfortable. We especially loved joining all of the other guests in Leslie's rentals for delicious brick oven pizza after a long day of hiking.
An incredible stay. Perfect little cottage - private, cozy, the right touches in the right places. Will definitely be back!
Leslie does a phenomenal job caring for her properties and the guests who get to enjoy them. She’s quick to reply and very accommodating. Twosome was perfect for our little “baby moon” get away. Tranquil and super quiet yet not far from river creek (10-15mins drive)
Had a great time in the cabin. Loved the view from the bay windows of the field and mountains beyond. Near a pristine, undeveloped lake with no motor boats. It doesn't get better than that.
What a view. What a view. So many amazing touches in this small place. Loved just staring at the mountains with my soul mate.
Leslie was a great host. The cabin is cute, spotless, and the view is lovely. We enjoyed the area; there is a lot of outdoors activities to do. And being able to make s'mores in the campfire was a nice touch!
This place is amazing. We needed this vacation very much and I'm so glad we found this little cabin. It has a great location and so many amenities. To wake up each morning to the view of the mountains was wonderful. We feel asleep to the quiet chatter of the woods and woke up to bird songs. The charm if this cabin is easy to see as soon as you drive up to it. The main goal of this trip was hiking and relaxation; both were accomplished. Our host was responsive and easy to communicate with. We would definitely go back.
The cottage was even sweeter in person than pictures can show. It was decorated beautifully and there were so many little touches that made us feel at home. Leslie left little bags of rose bud out for us to take, and there was wood provided and smores sticks. Everything was brand new and very clean. There was a map of their property in the house along with information about the area. It was the perfect end to our trip!
