What we love about this property.
We love the quiet solitude and the feeling of peace that comes with it. Whether we’re sitting by the campfire, grilling on the covered porch, staring at the night sky as more and more stars come into view, taking a hot shower outdoors, watching the rain from our perch on the side porch, or exploring the creek looking for unique rocks, there is a peace that is unrivaled. Although the lane is “seasonal” we have visited over the winter. The woodstove is more than adequate and also serves as our stove to heat water for bathing as well a leftovers for dinner. Reading a good book or drinking wine and playing cards by the fire is so relaxing on a cold winter night.
Nestled amongst a cluster of NY State forests, there are plenty of outdoor activities nearby. Otselic River and fishing is less than a mile away. Dorchester Park (20 minutes) provides a wealth of water activities—boating, kayaking, swimming, fishing, etc. No need to leave the property to hunt deer as there is a lot of deer activity on the property.
