Rates, Availability and FAQ's
Camp Not A Care is an extremely remote off grid cabin with 3 bedrooms and 1 bath on 20 acres, it is nestled between 4 ponds totaling around 100 acres to explore in the provided boats, there are 2 canoes, 2 kayaks and a flat bottom boat with an electric trolling motor. The largest of the 4 ponds is mud pond which runs into the north branch of the Saranac river. The property was once a rail road so is long and narrow, once you hit the driveway, it's a mile before you get to the cabin and the property continues for close to another mile. There are no public access points so you will most likely have the ponds to yourself. I say most likely because there is one spot across mud pond where people occasionally launch a canoe or kayak (without permission from the land owner) but this is very rare. About 5 or 6 miles away, you will also have access to Loon Lake, there is a canoe there for you to use. Camp Not A Care is available year round and is a perfect spot for snowmobiling and other outdoor winter activities.
When I say off grid, I am just talking about being off the electric grid. Electricity is provided by solar and a back up generator. Be prepared for some off grid living, you will not find things like a toaster oven (you'll need to use the oven), microwave, drip coffee maker (we have a stove top percolator), blender and any other small appliance that runs on electricity. Imagine having to "rough it" for a week, not such a bad thing. There is satellite internet and a smart tv so you can watch Netflix and other online streaming services. We can turn this off if you'd like. There is even cell service on the property. With that said, Camp Not A Care is a really special remote location which is best enjoyed by unplugging and becoming one with nature. If you've made it this far and want to continue reading then maybe Camp Not A Care is the place for you. Not only is the property surrounded by private ponds, it.s also surrounded by mountains making for some amazing views in all directions. The cabin is nicely decorated with Adirondack touches throughout. There are plenty of places to take walks right from the front door and a couple nice hikes 5-6 miles away, Crusher mountain is a very easy 30-40 minute hike to the top with a fantastic view of Loon Lake and Loon Lake Mountain is for the more adventurous hikers, it's about a 6 mile round trip with views that cannot be beat and an old out of commission fire tower (the lower steps have been removed so you cannot climb the fire tower.)
