We have been unsuccessfully trying to sell our Property for about 5 years! Now, we're determined to offer our unique camp to the highest bidder (or best offer).
Initially we flew and stayed at a wonderful inn so as to view several properties and to see what this part of the world had to offer. While we were long experienced with this part of the world (having owned a log cabin on Schroon River)
Later, we would drive across country from Tucson to Warrensburg and Lake George to enjoy our exploits and adventures.

Once Upon A Time
Over 100 years ago, our 256 acres (1 square mile) was a timber mill. Then, in the mid 90's, the timber mill ceased to exist and was torn down. A retired fireman from Queens, NY and his family setup a tiny home. Some 30 years after that their son bought a 2nd home which was laid at the end of the dirt road.
In 2015, we bought the camp. Much of the hoarding which had to be cleared .. i.e., old tractors, tubs, and garbage. Since we had bought this wonderful property sight unseen. Mind you, a youth camp tried to purchase the camp to expand and extend their world, but the sale didn't go thru as the 100 buyers failed to close?
