River Ranch is one of our finest and most prestigious properties located along the Adirondack Loj Road in Lake Placid with the High Peaks Range as a photographic backdrop. A 300-acre treasure, it offers both a perfect blend of rustic style and modern comforts - the ideal gathering place for family get-togethers or a vacation escape.
Built in the 1930's, the magnificent main house was constructed using the weathered wood and hand-hewn beams from eight local barns. The stones for its two large fireplaces were hand-picked from the adjoining Ausable River. The house is a charming combination of early Adirondack decor, elegant antiques, and oriental rugs.
The prominent great room is vaulted with massive timber beams, wide-plank flooring, a grand piano, and giant picture window with westerly views of the setting sun over Ampersand Mountain.
There is also a formal dining room, cozy bar, screened porch, and large playroom with ping pong and game tables. There are two separate bedroom wings having a total of six bedrooms that comfortably sleep 12. There are views from each bedroom.
The ideal property for any outdoor occasion, there is a 10-mile network of groomed trails for skiing, snowshoeing, jogging, horseback riding, hunting or fishing access to the Ausable River. The property is 3 miles from Lake Placid, 10 miles from Whiteface Mountain and minutes from several golf courses.
River Ranch . . . gracious, spellbinding, and unforgettable!
