80 acres Hunting Land and Timberland in Catlin NY 199 Backer Road


80 acres established Hunting and Recreational property near Horseheads NY, Chemung County.

Located on Backer Road just 10 minutes north of Horseheads sits this fantastic hunting property.  There is an established driveway that leads to a small open field overlooking the property.  This would make a great location to build a year-round home or a weekend getaway.  Private location which offers some nice valley views.

As you enter the property from the front field the topography gently slopes down from the road into established open hardwoods and then down into a valley where there is a creek and an old hunting cabin.  There is a small pond just up the hill from the cabin with some mature apple trees to attract wildlife.  Overlooking the pond and the small cleared area is a tower blind with a true stair case.  On the east side of the creek the topography gently slopes uphill into open hardwoods with some thick areas that offer bedding for whitetail deer.  When walking the property it would be hard not to notice the dozens of Buck rubs and scrapes throughout.  There are several maintained old logging roads and a separate driveway with a right of way across a neighbor’s property that makes accessing the property a breeze.  The woods offer a nice mix of hardwoods and pine containing species of Oak, Hard Maple, Ash, Birch, and Hemlock with some mature timber.  Power is available at the road.

No value is assigned to the cabin because it is in need of repairs and not usable in its current condition and is being sold as-is.  The cabin does have a laid up stone foundation and a stone fireplace.

Nearby destinations:  Corning NY 17 minutes, Waverly NY/PA Border 37 minutes, Ithaca NY and Cayuga Lake 47 minutes, and Watkins Glen and Seneca Lake 16 minutes.

Don’t miss out on this truly unique property!  There is no gas lease and all the oil, gas and mineral rights transfer.  Shown by appointment only.
