Site Description


Fountains Land is pleased to introduce our newest listing, the 295 acre Flagstaff Mountain Forest in the northeast Adirondacks. This versatile property is situated within the Ausable River Valley just off exit 34 of the Adirondack Northway, and lies within easy reach of Montreal, Plattsburgh and Burlington. Highlights include long paved road frontage, nice building site potential, meadows, stream frontage, tranquil beaver ponds, timber, and lots of wildlife sign. Flagstaff is a classic multiple use property that can be enjoyed on weekends with your friends and family while also being a smart long term woodlot investment.


The property is located in New York’s northern Adirondack region, which is one of the eastern United States’ greatest wilderness destinations. It’s located within an easy 10-minute drive of Interstate 87 Exit 34 just outside the village of Keeseville. The surrounding neighborhood offers a mix of rural residences, seasonal cottages and classic Adirondack pine and hardwood-covered forests which carpet the rolling foothills that overlook Lake Champlain.


Access is gained via 1,350 feet of paved, four-season road frontage along Auger Lake Road. The terrain along the road frontage is well drained, gently sloping and suitable for future home site or weekend cabin development opportunities. Electric and phone services are available roadside. A second point of access consists of a gated right-of-way reaching into the northeastern corner of the property. This private seasonal jeep trail is gated and runs approximately 2,000 feet to a level meadow in the heart of the land along Mud Brook.

Site Description

If you’re seeking Adirondack acreage for timber investment, homesteading, hunting, snowmobiling, ATV riding, wildlife management or weekend getaways, then Flagstaff Mountain Forest should be on your radar screen. This versatile property has a diverse suite of amenities that are sought out by many recreational land buyers, including a nice stream, a scenic beaver pond, wild apple trees and meadows that can be brush hogged back into actively managed wildlife and view shed clearings.


Flagstaff Mountain’s forest component is a versatile, long-term resource which can be managed for wildlife, recreation, open space and forest management. It’s perfectly suited for a long-term buyer who’s thinking runs to acquiring a nice recreational property & smart land investment that will steadily appreciate in value over time and can be eventually passed down to their heirs. Species composition is made up of red and white oak, white pine, the birches, hemlock, aspen, beech and ash. Most of the acreage was thinned between 2010 and 2012 and the timber resource is now in a growth mode for the next decade. It’s perfectly suited for a multiple use landowner who is seeking a low maintenance, ‘ready to enjoy’ timberland investment.
