Site Description

The 3,190-acre Little River Lake property is a unique blended timberland asset located in New York's northern Adirondack Mountains. This balanced investment opportunity benefits from an exclusively-owned 215-acre lake which drives long-term value and is supported by a favorable northern hardwood component and significant recreational leasing opportunities.
Little River Lake lies centrally within the property's expansive canvass, creating a private and exclusive water feature that is rarely available on the market. Its maximum depth is reported to be near 30', while average depth is 10'. The lake boasts over 5½ miles of undeveloped hardwood-covered shoreline with several potential building sites overlooking the water, offering excellent recreational access and good aesthetics. The lake frontage enjoys a scenic mixture of deciduous and conifer tree species, creating a beautiful backdrop for future cabin sites overlooking the water. Popular fish species including largemouth bass and brown bullhead.


A timber inventory conducted by Fountains Forestry in July 2012 indicates that total sawlog volume is 4,620 million board feet (1.77 MBF/commercial acre) and 20,350 pulpwood cords (7.8 cords/commercial acre).
