This quiet property is bordered on the south side by a small, pretty stream which is accessible by a short trail through the forest. For gardeners there are several raised beds and the beginnings of a vineyard-which needs some attention.There are four structures on the property. One rustic large (mostly finished) passive solar 1200 square foot post and beam straw/bale home built in 2005,a small 310 square foot cordwood masonry workshop/guest house, a tiny 200 square foot straw bale/post and beam art studio, a shed for storage and firewood, and lastly there is even a cordwood masonry dog house.

There is telephone service that runs to the camp and electricity is available at roadside if desired. For now it can be powered by a small generator.The camp sits well off the road (500 feet or so) and is private. Be aware that the building has no electricity to it. We removed the solar power system (which is seen in one picture) to another location. There is a 120 foot drilled well and plumbing to main camp. No septic, composting toilet can be installed.There is a beautiful shower and on demand hot water heater. The main camp is heated by a soap stone wood stove. All other buildings are unheated but can be heated with a simple small stove or propane heater. This camp was my residence until last summer (when photos were taken) but moved for a job. 

Minutes from Canada and Quebec's orchards, Chateaugay Lake and The 6 million acre Adirondack Park.The High Peaks as well as Lake Placid/Whiteface Mountain ski area and mountain bike center are about 1.5 hours away, the fantastic city of Montreal is about 1 hour away for those seeking a unique urban experience, and lastly the fishing mecca of Lake Champlain and Plattsburgh are an easy 40 minute drive.

This is a unique camp or possible home for someone who does not mind doing some work on the place or living a rustic life. It can be improved as you see fit but it is a basic, peaceful and quiet spot where relaxing is pretty easy.
