WHAT IS THE BRAMPTON?
The Brampton is a home - our home. But in one sentence it's an all year round hosted camp for up to 24 people focusing on private parties, corporate team-building days and curated weekend events.
The Brampton is a secluded lodge situated on the Hudson River amongst 15 acres of woodland tucked away in the foothills of the Adirondack mountains; it's just 20mins from Lake George and 15 mins from the largest ski resort in NY, Gore Mountain.
The properties (currently the main lodge, a glamping tent and a converted van) are available for hire exclusively (click here) or please come and join as part of a group to enjoy the activities we provide. They include: skiing (Nov - April), cross country skiing, kayaking, tubing, hiking, golf, fitness weekends, yoga, doing nothing except drinking beer round the fire, rafting, fishing or, frankly, just breathing in some fresh air nowhere near Canal Street or Penn Station.
The Brampton does not provide a food service but we gladly hire a 3rd party chef on your behalf.
The lodge is over 3000 square feet and can sleep 12+ guests. There are 6 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, 2 living rooms, a dining room and kitchen. Other features include: 2 fireplaces, wifi, hot tub, outdoor fire pit, one television (for emergencies only), ping pong, pool, corn hole, darts, outdoor grill and a speedboat moored on Lake George to take small groups out water-skiing or on an island safari. The lake boasts 165 islands, most of which you can camp on.
We recently purchased the property next door to give us river front land, plus 2 further cabins which is where we (jeff and jamie) sleep. As you can see, we are building another cabin which will sleep up to 8 but this is work in progress.
we have an outdoor yoga deck and a 1000 sq foot barn event space for working, resting or playing.

Story of Us
This is a story about two different people from two different worlds, but frankly it's too long and boring to explain. The fact is we met in New York City with strong beliefs in a similar idea and have been great mates ever since.
Jeff comes from very humble beginnings in Seoul, South Korea, so humble in fact that he was sent to America to seek fame and fortune. Sadly he only found Jamie. Jeff was working in real estate in NYC before a chance introduction to Jamie lead to the realization that they both had the same idea to buy a lodge upstate and turn it into an outdoor experience. Jeff believes tie pins are stylish, adores 1980's music (the two go hand in hand) and is inexplicably scared of squirrels.
Jamie started life in Denmark to British parents before moving to England for school, but then he upped sticks to NYC 8 years ago to continue his job as a hedge fund manager on Wall Street; in 2014, he left the world of Finance completely in search of start up projects to get involved in. Jamie also moonlights as a radio and TV presenter in the feint belief that perhaps one day he might even become talented at one of them. Jamie lives in Manhattan, is strangely impressive at Backgammon and is the worst cook in the entire world.
