Private stick-built, rustic cabin on 8 acres surrounded on 4 sides by Sugar Hill State Forest.

Unique, one-of-a-kind property!  Perfect spot for a weekend escape or hunting basecamp.  Located in the heart of the Finger Lakes Region between Seneca Lake and Keuka Lake and is only 15 minutes from downtown Watkins Glen!

This camp has been in the same family for over 60 years.  It offers 3 bedrooms, living room, kitchen with a dining area, and a kitchen sink with a hand pump.  This is an off-grid camp on a seasonal dirt road with no power available but there is good cell reception and a phone service available.  There are a couple of level spots around the camp large enough to park a camper or RV.  There is a wood stove for heat and an outhouse.  There is a drilled water well on the property that is plumbed into the cabin to the kitchen sink hand pump.  The cabin is in need of some repairs.
