Property description

Swim, fish, hike, enjoy lawn games, or just relax reading and communing with nature on a private 22 acre preserve with ponds, island, docks, boat, canoe, adirondack chairs and waterfront cabins, including a waterside screened porch. Three log cabins, each with private decks, two with full kitchens and 3/4 baths, provide comfort and a peaceful setting for that quiet, away from it all, vacation. There is a telephone and computer hookup.

Wildlife abounds provoking a natural interest amongst all ages.

Enjoy a campfire after supper with chairs surrounding the firepit, away from the camps but adjacent to the water. The western vista provides clear and colorful sunsets which precede the galaxy of stars that brilliantly light the evening and night sky.

Within 30 minutes guests may enjoy two 18 hole golf courses, a country club open to the public, shops, grocery stores, the Almanzo Wilder Homestead which provides tours and seasonal activates, a NYS Visitor Interpretive Center with tours, lectures and exhibits; and just a few miles further, the resort of Lake Placid with its many activities and events throughout the year.

Enjoy a soir francais or dejuner a mere two hours away in beautiful and vibrant Montreal where continuous visitor activities, shows, festivals and sightseeing abound. A day trip to the largest, French-speaking city in the Western hemisphere will provide many memories and experiences.

Informed, friendly caretakers eagerly share their knowledge of local lore and special fishing streams and current activates with guests. Shangri-La in the Adirondacks is the ideal setting for family reunions and gatherings. It provides a natural setting for activities for the entire family, from parent-planned treasure hunts for the children, to swimming, hiking and bicycling for those keeping fit and trim, to fishing, reading, croquet, horseshoes, walking and just communing with nature or with each other, for all.

Guests have left with tears in their eyes as their vacation at Shangri-La has come to an end and they leave the mountains and the water to return home. We invite you to come and enjoy the serenity of Shangri-La in the Adirondacks. You will love it!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1963

About the owner: As a native New Yorker, and now a long-time Californian, I cherish my roots and memories of the Adirondacks, returning frequently to enjoy nature's wonderful gifts as so abundantly evidenced at Shangri-La.

Why the Owner Chose Malone, NY, USA:
Our family attachment to this area extends from early 1920's and includes, weddings, honeymoons, holidays, reunions, birthdays and anniversarys.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Nature, in all its silence and beauty is just outside the doors, windows and walls of Shangri-La. Animal life abounds and genrations of animals return to the forest and ponds at Shangri-La. They provide much company and round out our gatherings. On a clear night, a walk around the main pond brings the stars seemingly within touch. Shangri-La, away from city light and highway noise, allows a focus on the wonderment of nature with all its attributes.
