Many options are available to the new owner of this beautiful Otsego County property: build your new home, hunting cabin, or vacation getaway less than 2 miles from the pristine Canadarago Lake public boat launch. In addition to the many attractions of New York’s famous Leatherstocking Region, you can hunt, fish, boat, and enjoy all manner of outdoor recreation from this easily accessed location. Or create your own small farm, own horses, or raise livestock, with plenty of room for pastures and cropland. There are ~11.5 acres of active agricultural land and 5.5 acres of mixed woods, and the balance is brushy pasture - ideal cover and browse for whitetail, wild turkey, and other area wildlife. Bordered by farms on three sides, the whitetail are attracted to this area and can be seen moving through the property. The woods on the back end provide several good options for strategically placed stands, while the brushy pasture areas offer good cover and forage. Several buck rubs were noted when last walked (see photos). There is electricity on the property, and pretty views of the valley below can be seen along the gentle grade rising from the road frontage. Less than 2 miles down the road is the public boat launch for Canadarago Lake, which offers over 2000 acres of pristine water sports, fishing, and recreation. Travel another 20 minutes, and you can enjoy more of the best lakes in the Leatherstocking area on Otsego Lake, covering 4046 acres, both with lake trout, walleye, and perch, among many others, while fishing and boating. The Exeter Trial Blazer’s snowmobile trail crosses a portion of this property for winter sports enthusiasts, providing easy access to miles of groomed and maintained trails.
