About the neighbourhood
This is a very private and quiet 'neighborhood '. While you can almost see another house through the woods....you are more likely to see deer or wild turkey roaming around. Across the street is state forest. A field surrounds the home - you can walk across the back yard and explore the many connecting trails from the property to different state trail locations like Pine Orchard or Murphy, Middle, and Bennett Lakes. There is a no-motor boat Lake .6 miles up the road. It is a small lake with a launch for kayaks or canoes. The crisp air in winter and the smell of the pines in summer will invite you out to adventure either on the property or the adjoining areas.
Getting around
Just a short drive to rafting trips with professional rafting companies, scenic train rides, Blue Mountain Lake Museum, Saratoga race track, S.P.A.C Cafe Lena's, shopping in historic downtown, Glens falls - amusement parks and The Great Escape, Lake George - entertainment, outlet stores, Cooperstown - Baseball Hall of Fame, Glimmer glass Opera House, Ommegang Belgium Brewery, Howe Caverns and much more. Pets are welcome with an additional fee
