VACATION RENTAL - CAMP RUSH - UPPER ST. REGIS LAKE
An Adirondack “Gilded Age” Great Camp on Upper St. Regis Lake
Built in 1890 as a vacation home for a New York family, the camp has remained in the same family to the present day. This is the first time in its history that it has been offered for rent.
The camp, with 2,000 feet of shoreline on its own point, has one of the premier locations on Upper St. Regis Lake with outstanding views of the entire lake, and gorgeous sunsets over St. Regis Mountain and sunrises to the east. Camp Rush sleeps 14 people.
The Camp has a main kitchen/dining/living cabin, 5 sleeping cabins, 2 boathouses and assorted outbuildings.
The 2,000 square foot main cabin has a living room, dining room, pantry, kitchen, laundry, bathroom and 1 bedroom.
The living room features a cathedral ceiling and original wood paneling, and a fabulous massive stone hearth. The architectural high point of the room is the ½ round front of the room facing the lake designed by renowned Adirondack Great Camp architect William Coulter.
The dining room has beautiful diamond pane windows looking out over the lake to the north to Mt. Lyon.
The pantry and kitchen have modern appliances and original cabinetry. The counters and kitchen sink are soapstone as used in the 1890’s.
The sleeping cabins have sitting rooms, dressing rooms and full baths.
The City Cabin has 3 bedrooms, sitting room and large bathroom. The intricate wood paneling and red brick fireplace were designed to mimic at New York City apartment of the 1890’ so camp guests of that period would feel at home.
Ruth’s cabin has large 500 square foot bedroom, dressing room and bathroom. The beautiful cathedral ceiling paneling of the 1890’s does not have a single knot in it. A beautiful golden color.

The Hill Cabin is set off by itself on its own hill. It has 1 large back bedroom and 1 small side bedroom, sitting room and 2 bathrooms.
The Lake Cabin is always a favorite cabin. Perched right on the lake shore, it’s porch hangs over the water. There are 2 stone fireplaces, 1 bedroom, 1 dressing room and large bathroom. This cabin has its own outdoor shower. There is a beautiful ½ round window seat right at the water’s edge perfect for a rainy afternoon read.
The front boathouse and dock is another beautiful architectural feature of the camp and amazing place to sit.
The front dock, located adjacent to the front boathouse, is huge and always sunny, large enough for dining table, chaise lounges, chairs, boats and swimming.
The front boathouse has 2 floors. Built in the 1990’s it is a copy of the original boathouse built in the 1890’s. It has the original cedar railing work, shingle work and intricate roof design.
The first floor, with its interior paneling and diamond pane windows, has 2 slips, 1 wet and 1 dry. The dry slip is a floating ramp like they had in the 1890’s for launching guide boats, canoes and other watercraft.
The second floor of the boathouse is where one spends the most time. The open air 1200-square foot cedar wood and mahogany structure is perched over the lake with a 180-degree view of Upper St. Regis lake.
