Whitetails & Wildlife: Cabin, Woods, Stream, Open Area, View

Description

Located in the heart of the Leatherstocking Region of James Fenimore Cooper fame, this sweet hunting and/or outdoor recreational retreat features a very comfortable 4 bedroom, 1.5 bath spacious cabin, with electric, septic and well.   Old stone walls provide a lovely touch of nostalgia, while the property is situated in an area of great natural beauty with views of wooded hills. There is a nice driveway off the paved and year round maintained county road, leading to the cabin, with a park-like setting surrounding the buildings. Easy to access ATV trails lead to the inner sections of the property, which is heavily wooded and also features Brier Creek, which runs through the middle section. This area of Otsego County is renowned for its robust whitetail deer population, wild turkey, grouse and overall thriving wildlife population.  There was abundant deer sign, with many heavily pounded trails traversing the property,  scrapes and some serious rubs were noted. Heavily wooded but also offered several small open meadow areas as well as areas of brushy undergrowth providing perfect habitat for grouse and small furbearers as well as a safe bedding retreat for whitetail.  While this is a secluded location, Oneonta is closeby with a host of amenities and Cooperstown is approx. 45 minutes away, including the National Baseball Hall of Fame, Cooperstown Dreams Park as well as shopping, hospital, gas and cultural attractions like the Fenimore Art Museum, Farmers Museum, Brewery Ommegang, and Glimmerglass Theatre. Outstanding fishing awaits nearby on Otsego Lake, 4046 acres of pristine water, with lake trout, walleye and perch among many other species, the Glimmerglass State Park, with its public beach and picnic grounds, as well as fantastic water recreational activities. The property is approx. 3 hours from the George Washington Bridge/NYC and offers so many opportunities: it could be your home, camp, retreat, small farm, hunting and outdoor recreation. This exceptional outdoor recreational property is in a private location, yet close to world class amenities.
