Owner info

Year Purchased: 1988

About the owner: My wife and I have owned the property for about 25 years. Our family has certainly enjoyed our summers of boating, swimming and hiking and entertaining. Come make your own memories.

Why the Owner Chose Owls Head, NY, USA:
Indian Lake, Mountain View (Franklin County, near Malone) is a hidden jewel in the Northern Adirondacks. This lake is a quiet sanctuary with many camps scattered around the perimeter of the lake but not a lot of outside boat traffic. You are 1 hour from Lake Placid, 2 hours from Burlington VT and Montreal , If you are a golf enthusiast the famed 36 hole Malone Golf Club is just 15 minutes away. In additional there are many hiking trails, including hiking up Owls Head Mountain or into High Fall, which is a 3/4 mile hike on a marked trail that leads to a number of waterfalls as the Salmon River cascades it's way through the mountains. You can be as active as you want or just chill on the deck located directly on the water above the boat house or the all seasons porch. Either way you will find relaxation and enjoyment with your family. Come and make your own memories.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
This camp is located on a private access road with only two other properties. You are located 50 feet from the water and have a 75' lake front. At night there is a fire pit for making smores. If you enjoy fishing, a metal row boat and fishing equipment is all here. If you own your own motor boat bring it and dock it right next to the boathouse. Enjoy, hiking, boating, biking and relaxing. You will find the camp to be tastefully decorated in an Adirondack decor and all the comforts of home.
