Property description

Built in 1926 and recently renovated, this classic log cabin is rich with Adirondack character.

Nestled in a stand of mature pines, the cabin's very private and secluded setting offers the gamut of outdoor activities but is also conveniently located less than 10 Miles from Whiteface Mountain, and less than 20 Miles from Lake Placid. The cabin is surrounded by hundreds of acres of forest which is accessible for hiking and hunting via a large network of private trails.

A fly fisherman's haven, the cabin sits a mere 50 yards from the AuSable River's 'Dream Mile', which was featured in the fly Fishing portion of ESPN's Outdoor Games (2001) and Outdoor Life's East Coast Fly Fishing Competition (2001, 2002). Fishing access by special reservation so please inquire.

A massive stone fireplace serves as the centerpiece of the great room and will take the chill out of any Adirondack night. With its master bedroom and two cozy bunk rooms, the cabin sleeps 8 people, with day beds in living room for napping. The cabin also features a full bath, with hot and cold running water, an outfitted kitchen, and a beautiful screened-in porch for meals or relaxation.

The cabin comes furnished with bed linens, kitchenware, and all the comforts of home. A Grocery service is also available.

The cabin is located at the end of a long gravel/natural driveway. 2WD vehicles are usually sufficient in the summer and fall, but 4WD is recommended, particularly in the winter and spring.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: The cabin is owned by my self and my father. I am a young architect interested in historic preservation, restoration, and land management.

Why the Owner Chose Jay:
The property is a real gem with beautiful forests, great river access, and charming Adirondack architecture. When we purchased it, the cabin had been left to deteriorate, so we put in quite of bit of work to restore it to it's original condition (except where would could improve the amenities without compromising the character). We had used it as a family camp for a number of years. Because we were only there a couple times a year, though, we felt that it was under enjoyed. So we opened it to the public so that more people could experience its unique charm.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
River access, peaceful seclusion, wonderful fly fishing.
