Property description

This spacious, elegant, lakefront log home sits tucked away on a secluded 52-acre mountain retreat, surrounded by hundreds of acres of publicly-owned forest and rolling hills. The house looks out onto a beautiful, private 7-acre lake where you can swim, boat and fish. After grilling up your dinner on the oversized deck, take a swing in the hammock and then relax in an Adirondack chair and watch the stars come out in total silence. Situated midway between Woodstock and Cooperstown, Spruce Lake Farm is 5 minutes from quaint Bovina Center, 10 minutes from a premier 18-hole golf course, and 15 minutes from supermarkets, antique shops, fine dining and boutique shopping in Andes and Delhi. Children will love the tree house, play set and beach, as well as the two rowboats and numerous forest trails. Wireless internet and satellite TV are free. Spruce Lake Farm also makes a wonderful gathering place for weddings, reunions and company retreats.

Also on the main level are the kitchen and dining area, a log-walled bedroom with adjacent full bathroom, a TV room with HDTV and DirecTV satellite service, and an airy sunroom and library area as you enter the house.
Upper and lower levels: The upper level of the house has three bedrooms, one of which includes a loft for extra sleeping space, and two full bathrooms.
