This 16 acres would make a great property for a self sustaining Adirondack homestead. Old stone walls are evidence of a farm of many years ago that has since grown into a stand of mixed pine and hardwood forest. The pine is plentiful and large enough to be cut and sawed into lumber for a cabin and barn. There is a beautiful open meadow in the front that transitions into the mixed forest and then into an impressive stand of mature sugar maples that slopes up a hill to state land. The sugar maples provide a wonderful opportunity for a maple syrup sugaring bush. The meadow in the front of the Adirondack acreage would be ideal for gardening or horses.
The property is located near Loon Lake in an absolutely gorgeous region of the Adirondacks, only a 20 minute drive north of Saranac Lake and 30 minutes from Lake Placid. Only minutes from the land is Kushaqua Lake, a beautiful body of water that is the start of a 20-mile canoe trip into the St. Regis Canoe Area. Whether you are looking for a place to sink your roots or a part-time mountain cabin, this is prime Adirondack acreage.
