Description: Tolkien Forest Wonderland on the Vernooy Kill in Napanoch. Access can be from Lundy Rd or from Upper Jenny Brook Rd. This Adirondack style lodge with hints of Japanese architecture is a simple but elegant gentleman's get-away camp set in a mature forest nestled within a bed of moss, ferns and giant rhododendron surrounded by an historic trout hatchery with a dozen pools. Enter this remarkable estate through a primordial forest curated as an artisanal wilderness retreat. The eventual buyer will know immediately and fall in love with this unique property. The hand built custom lodge with a Japanese motif roof-line is highlighted by a massive stone fireplace with two hearths. One of the fireplaces charms the indoors and the other dominates the large screened summer living room. The cathedral ceiling home has wrought iron bars reinforcing the structure, selected barnwood is used for the interior walls and floors give an ambiance of warmth and comfort for peace filled time when on retreat within the massive centenarian forest. Architectural details include blacksmith door and structural hardware, clear cedar trim around windows, lead plate caps on deck posts, copper flashing around the chimney, thick cedar shake shingles, Adirondack style thick slab-wood siding, heavy insulation and it is all surrounded by 30" to 48" diameter OLD TREES -- think of an enchanted friendly forest. A craftsman built utility garage houses the tools and equipment used to maintain the grounds of the estate. There is no interference from electronic media in this off-the-grid escape as you will be surrounded only by the pristine sounds of the streams and wind through the branches. A half mile of the renowned Vernooy Kill, a world class trout river, runs through the property and adjoins additional miles of the stream within thousands of acres of NY State Forever Wild Forest around three sides. Meander along the paths among the arboreal grandeur of the uncut forest and along the river and streams that feed the ponds and pools. The estate is a portion of the historic, but now gone, Yama Farms Resort Hotel. It was frequented by the rich and famous during the early 1900's with familiar names such as Roosevelt, Ford, Firestone, Cody, Burroughs, Te Ata Fisher, and Chase. As a portion of the Yama Farms, this stream filled wonderland once produced thousands of brook trout for restaurants around the northeast. The pure water of its streams was recently considered as a primary source for a renowned water bottling company. See the aerial video at this link: Less than two hours from NY City, but make no mistake as this location is isolated. Plan on coming here to relax in rustic comfort with the simplest though elegant accommodations and meditate among giant rhododendrons and a cathedral of forest.
Entry to the property may be from Lundy Rd with several acres between the stream and the road. A bridge could be built across the stream for either pedestrian access or for a vehicle. This is an elegant though simple, well built and insulated cabin, heated with a woodstove. There is no kitchen or sink and the bathroom is a separate structure with a composting toilet. Bathing is open air at the spring or usually a camp style solar warmed shower bag. There is room for a septic system and the water supply is an abundant spring. Electric can be brought in with 4 poles from the line nearby. Three deeded parcels are included in this listing all under SBL#75.3-2-7.121 with over 107 acres. There is road frontage along Cutler Rd on the north and west sides, by Lundy Rd on the east side, and by Upper Jenny Brook Rd on the south side. The separately deeded 35+ northern portion along Phillips Rd can be easily subdivided off with no impact on the main camp area. There was a recent purchase for the State Forest of large neighboring parcels on the east and south sides.
