Descente Lodge

An historic property comprised of 14.80 acres of game filled, hardwood forest lands located in Lake Placid, NY with 1,100 feet on the West Branch of the world-famous Ausable River and surrounded on three sides by State land. This Adirondack style home has 3 beautiful native stone fireplaces with one each located in the great room, dining room and master bedroom. The large kitchen has a new professional gas range and the original log cottage pump house alongside the main house could be converted into an artist studio. This is a well maintained, traditional Adirondack Camp with plenty of room for a family compound. There is a newly paved cul-de-sac driveway and large parking area that provides ample space for large family gatherings or vacation rentals. This home would be perfect for a full time family or for use as a getaway part-time home. There is an excellent vacation rental history. The Descente ski apparel company used this home for the 1980 Olympic Winter Games because of the close proximity of the 5 minute drive to both the center of the Olympic Village of Lake Placid and Whiteface Mountain. The river frontage for this property is in the Trophy Section of the Ausable River. Enjoy the great outdoors and all it has to offer on this large real estate parcel by hiking, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling and fishing in your own backyard!
