    Martin's backcountry home, Camp Barn is at the trailhead to The Lookout and Wolf's Nest. It's on the road past New Camp and The Cabin, well screened by intervening woods. Built in the early 70's, for years it was for just tractors, bushhogs and forestry tools. Unexpectedly homeless in 2001, and after building Thoreau House, a romantic home idea that didn't work (but that's another story), Martin began converting the barn for living.  (CLICK HERE for 6 photos of Camp Barn exterior, Pine Grove and trailhead.) (For location see Fourpeaks Trail Map.  Look for "Barn" by the trailhead to The Lookout.)

    Oak Stove at The Hideout. CLICK HERE for 23 photos.First effort was The Hideout, carved out of what was an auto shop for parts and repair. Limited light from outside, as the windows open into covered sheds. We did the best with high windows, but it remained dark after all. Very safe. And fun in the Winter with a fire in the old Olive Oak stove. Comfortable armchairs, and bookcases all around. Oriental rugs. Big Spanish library table from my NYC office in the 70's. An 8x10 fully equipped Chef Kitchen. Later a cozy office with fireplace and two banks of batteries for computer power. (CLICK HERE for The Hideout, Chef Kitchen and Office, 23 photos.)

    parlor stove at Guest Room. CLICK HERE for 22 photos. The sunny Guest Room got the best exposure and the finest furniture, flotsam from the destroyed Stone House home at the bottom of the hill. Antique linen press and hunting sideboard, major oriental rug. Large and friendly. A parlor stove with old fashion platform rockers. A door lets out to the view deck with picnic table and charcoal grill, by a 2-acre cool pine grove with hammock and lady slippers in the Spring. (CLICK HERE for the Guest Room.)

    Camp Barn. About Privacy at Camp Barn. Unlike all other Fourpeaks rentals, a stay at the Guest Room involves a shared use of the Camp Barn structure with The Hideout and work sheds. The Hideout is Home Sweet Home for Your Adirondack Guide and George, the Fourpeaks Resident Canine. Also, the three large storage sheds at Camp Barn are in year round use for Fourpeaks tractor and jeep storage, plus tools and maintenance equipment and supplies. The sheds adjoin but do not communicate with the guest living spaces. And, of course, both the Guest Room and The Hideout have separate private entrances. Every effort is made to afford Camp Barn guests the highest possible degree of privacy.

    Fourpeaks is a smoke-free vacation place. No smoking is permitted in any of the Fourpeaks accommodations. See Safety First! & Fourpeaks Rental Terms. CLICK HERE for more about limited water supply at our backcountry camps. Limited water supply at our backcountry camps. There's no city water at Fourpeaks backcountry camps. And no electricity to operate pumps to get water from our wells. Water for washing must be pumped by hand and hauled to where it's to be used just like years ago. In winter, water is especially limited, as pitcher pumps are not operable and stand pumps at the wells may freeze in prolonged cold weather. Living with a limited supply of water is part of the backcountry experience. It's educational and fun to learn how they did it years ago.
    NOTE: Camp water is not tested and therefore not potable. Guests at the backcountry camps must supply their own drinking water! Bottled Spring Water available for sale at Camp Barn ($3 per 2-1/2 gallon container.)
