Built in 1928, the five-bedroom, one-bathroom, 1,200-square-foot seasonal cottage on a private island in Adirondack Park’s Sixth Lake is accessible only by boat or seaplane.
Made to last, the petite island is surrounded by a full retaining break to prevent erosion. The property also includes a boat house, dock slip, and parking on the mainland.
While the home has been updated over the decades, it has the feel of a bygone era. Ideal for outdoor and boating enthusiasts or anyone hoping to retreat from our mad, mad modern world, this is a place of pure solitude.
Set among exquisite natural beauty, the property would also make a perfect getaway for pilots in search of a place to fly in for vacations and long weekends, according to listing agent Keir Weimer.
Hiking, biking, canoeing, and kayaking are easily accessible from the island. The nearby village of Inlet provides plenty of creature comforts, including dining and shopping options.
While the home is currently outfitted as a seasonal retreat, Weimer says upgrades to the structure’s insulation and infrastructure could make it livable in the winter months. But getting home would be a different story—an owner would need a snowmobile or snowshoes to get over the lake after it freezes over in the winter.
“It’s a really cool property with an Old World feel,” says Weimer. “It’s like a mini version of a grand Adirondack camp.”
A vacation getaway just hours from several major Northeastern cities, this idyllic property floats in the middle of a crystal-blue lake waiting for its next owner ready to start a romantic, rustic new adventure.
