"THE RETREAT" Live The Dream - SOLD

The Scenic Splendor of John Brannon Road Retreat

Two goals competed in the conception of the John Brannon Road Retreat: rustic comfort and practicality. This all-season home is less than a year old and is surrounded by breath-taking mountain views and forest scenery. Electric cables, phone lines and water mains are buried to endure the rigors of extreme climatic variations without interfering with the rustic charm of the location.

This home has 3 bedrooms, 3-1/2 bathrooms, a walkout basement and a passive wine cellar as part of its offering. This home is climate controlled with three independent baseboard zones or can be kept toasty with the state-of-the-art woodstove. This is a very low maintenance dwelling with an integrated monitoring system connected to the local supplier of heating oil—saving you the worry and expense of unwanted energy disasters.  

The Retreat also includes a metal garage/shed with 750 square feet of storage space near the entrance of the property to store whatever possessions you might have. This garage is equipped with: phone lines, electrical power and running water.

Privacy. Tranquility. Freedom. Are only part of what the John Brannon Road Retreat in the quaint hamlet of Olmstedville has to offer.  If you are an outdoor enthusiast you could not be better situated. Imagine! During the winter months: snowmobiling, Alpine skiing at Gore Mountain, ice-fishing, snow shoeing and skating on your own pond. During the warmer months: swimming, golfing, boating, white-water rafting, hiking or climbing. Surrounded by endless expanses of Adirondack wilderness, bird and animal watching is a year-round delight.

The Retreat also offers its own trail system that can be used for cross-country skiing, jogging or accessing Minerva stream. The current owner keeps several canoes at various put-ins for spontaneous fishing expeditions or to regale his guests with a rustic Adirondack outing.

Discover what the Adirondacks has to offer. The breath taking views on this property beckon those with the imagination and desire to own a piece of a national treasure.  Forty acres of prime and private Adirondack land, contiguous on one side with the canoeable Minerva Stream, on the other side with state land designated as forever wild. Remote and yet accessible: less than 13 miles from: Gore Mountain Ski Resort, exit 26 of I-87, and Schroon Lake Village.
