Situated minutes from the Connecticut River and the vibrant village of Lancaster, the forest offers long-range views of several North Country peaks from a private site at the end of an internal roadway.
Set within Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom and the Connecticut River Valley, Fellows Road Forest offers scenic views of the valley and the rugged peaks of northern New Hampshire. Despite the private ridgetop locale, the forest is conveniently located 2.6 miles from the village of Lancaster, NH, a vibrant community (population 3,360), offering a full suite of amenities with an established downtown.
The property contains roughly 300’ of road frontage along Fellows Road, a gravel, town-maintained road with electric and telephone services. This road services only a few residential properties beyond to the north and therefore is seldom traveled. An established driveway midway along the frontage (1/2 mile from Route 102) is the starting point for an internal road that proceeds uphill into the property for a distance of 1,450’, ending in a large area of level terrain.
Much of the land sits at a fairly constant elevation near 1,100’, resulting in mostly level terrain with some small hilly areas. The exception to the mostly level terrain is the modest to steep rise in elevation, starting at the town road and proceeding southwesterly uphill into the forest for roughly 900’. The incline along the access road provides for outstanding views that unfold to the northeast. The ground levels out near the end of the road to offer several potential house sites.
The balance of the forest supports a diverse mix of young and middle aged stands of good quality and vigor. Of particular interest is the 50 acres of northern hardwoods found at the property’s center which is primarily well stocked and scenically attractive. The remaining stands provide a mix of age classes and species creating habitat for the vibrant bird and large mammal game that frequent the property.
