Turn-key Retreat, diverse wildlife, ponds, borders NYS Lands

Amazing opportunity awaits to own a turn-key furnished off-grid private retreat with a 24x38' Lodge, 24x18' Cabin, 30'x40' Pavilion with outdoor kitchen, 30'x40' two-story shop as well as multiple storage sheds. The main lodge was lovingly built by its original owner/artist (see commemoration plaque in pictures) and features a one-room living area with a really cool antique, cast iron wood burning kitchen stove and gorgeous huge laid stone fireplace - all in working order ready to heat and feed the crew. A gorgeous newly built second log cabin sleeps 8 comfortably. There is a really nice, solidly built 24'x40' Pavilion with a food prep area/stage and concrete floor which could be for parties, picnics, group gatherings or just a sheltered place for the family to gather, among any number of different uses. In addition, there is a gambrel roofed, two story shop with its own living quarters that has a wood stove for heat and sleeps 6. The other side of the shop offers a large area for equipment as well as stairs (not a ladder) to its second floor which could be used for additional storage or sleeping/play area. The property has two other nice sized storage buildings and two outhouses. Electricity is provided by a like new, gas powered generator which is included with this turn key operation, located in the shop with lines buried underground to the lodge to minimize noise, and there are multiple propane tanks as additional fuel source. Water is provided from a drilled well serviced by a working antique hand pump. This remote property is the pinnacle of privacy as it is located on the dead-end of a seasonal use public road which cuts through NYS State Land to get to it (i.e. no neighbors). Main access is provided to the interior where the buildings are located by a large, well-built gravel driveway, with ample parking. The trail system around the property is excellent, large enough for ATVs throughout and in many cases where trucks could travel them as well. This property is a wildlife haven, with diverse habitat provided by woods, brush, open fields and water areas as well as agricultural fields on one border. There is a mix of hardwoods and soft, consisting mostly of oak, ash, cherry and maple, with some hemlock and pines. There are two man-made ponds with food plots next to them, one with a viewing blind and one natural beaver pond. Wild apple trees are scattered throughout and oak mast combined provide great feed to draw wildlife in, particularly deer and wild turkey, in addition to the food plots planted with clover and some brassicas. There was ample deer sign, turkey, grouse, small game and all manner of birds and waterfowl have been noted here. This property borders on two sides with the 661 acre Triangle State Forest, which offers hunting, hiking, camping, fishing and a snowmobile trail running through it. Water recreation and fishing is available within 10 minutes from Dorchester Park on the Whitney Point Reservoir, a 1200 acre lake renowned for walleye, bass and panfish among many other species and offers a public beach and public boat launch. Whitney Point Multiple Use Area is located there as well with an additional 4546 acres of NYS Land to enjoy. This very secluded location is still only minutes away from Whitney Point and many outstanding amenities in the Binghamton, Cortland, Oneonta, and surrounding areas, highlights include multiple state parks, lakes with public beaches and boat launches, shopping, baseball venues, museums, cultural and performing arts and many different culinary delights with everything from high-end restaurants to micro-breweries to family-style eateries. NYC/George Washington Bridge is only 3.5 hours away. This beautiful property is turn-key and could be your own private compound or hunting camp surrounded by acres of woods and wildlife to escape to or use it as a unique business opportunity as a destination venue, retreat or campground - so many possibilities.
