As a vacation destination, the Great Camp of Bearhurst is anything but ordinary. It is a remarkable bit of history that lives on to provide our guests with a true Adirondack experience.Bearhurst Sign

All of the outbuildings at Bearhurst-originally the boathouse, the icehouse and horse stalls, and estate kitchens-have been renovated into charming cottages that provide modern comforts while retaining their turn-of-the-century appeal. Each of the immaculately maintained cottages are distinctively furnished, has a well-equipped kitchen, wireless internet, television, and a DVD player.

While the inside of the cottages are charming and comfortable, the world outside is nothing short of spectacular! Here, we see nature at its finest–beautiful sunsets over the lake against a backdrop of ascending mountains. With 1200 feet of lake front property, Bearhurst gives our guests both privacy and wonderful access to lakeside activities. A spacious dock invites swimming, kayaking, canoeing, sailing, fishing, water-skiing, or just sitting in the sun with a good book.  We even have canoes and kayaks available for guest use.

Of course, the beauty of our immediate surroundings is only the beginning. The adventurous guest will find this section of the Adirondack Park generous in its bounty with vast tracts of wilderness that offer opportunities for hiking, canoeing, hunting, and other outdoor pursuits. And after exploring nature, our guests love to investigate the nearby towns. Speculator has a choice of good restaurants, Saratoga Springs is a lovely 75-minute trip, and antiquing is never far away.  We are also just up the road from Camp of the Woods.

Bearhurst is not just another vacation spot. It’s a change of pace. A chance to truly get away.
