Sheila & Bob are nothing short of perfect hosts. The site was beautiful and I truly felt so welcomed & at home. So much so that I am booking another stay in the coming weeks...and another after that! Soak up all the information Bob & Sheila have to share with you.

Sheila and Bobs place was so amazing! The property was beautiful, very well maintained, and filled with trails and hidden little spots that they’ve built up over the years. The location was right in the heart of the high peak wilderness, and near lots of incredible lakes and mountains. Sheila and Bob has great recommendations for us as well. Next time we’re in the Adirondacks we’ll be sure to stay here again!

This is one of the most unique places to stay in the Adirondacks! Situated on 50 acres of diverse northern Adirondack land in Paul Smiths, the base is close to all of the great outdoor adventures the Adirondacks has to offer. The property itself is comprised of private campsites and purpose-built structures amongst its varying landscape while boasting a claimed 163.2 things to keep yourself, your friends, and your family occupied. I'd argue the number of things to do on the property is a lot more! A wonderfully illustrated map of the property is provided upon check-in; use it and make sure to take the time to explore - the whole place is a wonder.

My wife and I tent-camped for more than a week, opting to extend our stay longer than intended because we were enjoying our time so much, even though we had to endure frigid September nights. The hosts, Bob and Sheila, are simply the best. They're personable, knowledgeable, and innovative. We appreciated every minute of conversation with them. They checked in with us daily, often making excellent suggestions of where to hike, canoe, and track for moose.

We walked away from our stay rejuvenated and inspired by everything we experienced, while simultaneously planning when we could return next (which will be soon!). This base is truly a special place.

*Additionally, Bob's maple syrup is an absolute must-try. Having grown up around a bountiful amount of maple syrup in rural New England, I have never tasted anything quite as real as what is produced right on the property through traditional methods.

It was a great private site due to only booking one site during COVID. Sheila and Bob were very friendly and super knowledgeable about the area. A little road noise but stopped a bit later in the night.

Bob and Sheila are awesome, and have such a special thing going on at Adirondack Vacation Base. The campsite was beautiful and secluded, with an outhouse and running water nearby. The site is very large, with plenty of options for arranging our campsite how we wanted with multiple fire pit areas to choose from. We were greeted warmly and received so many great recommendations for nearby activities. Will definitely be coming back!

The campground at Adirondack Vacation Base was amazing. Very private, with plenty of space to explore. The hosts have done an amazing job with accommodations and details. The outhouse is super clean and nice, the trail system is well marked and fun to explore, and the campsite was well appointed. Would definitely return!

By far this was my favorite camp site of my life. I've only been seriously going outdoors for about 5 years, but I've been in different sites across America, and everything was top notch. There was a delicate balance achieved between privacy, ammenaties, and preservation of nature. The host was a very kind and thoughtful person, and left you alone to enjoy the woods. Thank you.
