Spruce Camp is one of five camps on the Grey Shingles Camps property. It features front and rear doors with decks, a master bedroom with a queen bed, a living room with a queen memory foam sofa bed, and a loft with two twin beds. It also has a full bath with a tub, and a small kitchen. There is an outdoor table and chairs with a charcoal grill out back. It has a mid-century modern theme, and includes some fun items from the original camps!
The Grey Shingles Camps property has been a cottage colony since the 1940's. We have recently completed extensive renovations, and our guests are enjoying this beautiful old property now with a modern sensibility. In addition to renting camps individually, we are able to rent the property to a group of up to 26 for celebrations, events and weddings!
The property consists of five acres of open lawn, woodland, an orchard, and a private waterfront with beach on pristine Rust Pond. Magnificent old sugar maples, red maples, Norway spruce, and white pine will greet you as you enter the property through the fieldstone pillars. Massive stone walls line the property boundaries on both sides
At the top of the drive is our pickleball and basketball courts. The Grey Shingles Camps Rec Hall will be in view, with it's old 'Welcome to Grey Shingles' sign. Built in the 1920's for the girls' camp 'Ehawee', the Rec hall provides a spacious gathering place for our guests as well as our Reception desk. Amenities include a living room with a large screen TV with cable, ping pong, foosball, and other games. There is a new full kitchen, dining area, screen porch, and a sun deck overlooking the lawn and orchard. Our rates include the use of all Rec hall facilities!
Behind the Rec hall are the five fully renovated Grey Shingles Camps in the shade of the towering Norway spruce trees. The camps look out onto the grand lawn which features volleyball, bocce, horseshoes, corn hole, and other games. There is a swingset as well. A stone fire pit accommodates our guests for frequent campfires with s'mores. Apples in the orchard during late summer and autumn are numerous, delicious, and shared by all. From the orchard, through the opening in the stone wall, is a gently sloping woodland path which leads to our Rust Pond waterfront. There you will find a beach and docks, kayaks, SUP's, a canoe, and sunfish for your use. The fishing is terrific so bring your tackle!
