Overview

Offered for the first time in 100 years, Forestmere is a classic 660 acre preserve located five miles north of Paul Smiths College. Mile-long Chain Lake is the centerpiece of this sportman’s/family retreat together with 3 PRIVATE LAKES and 4.5 MILES OF WATERFRONT including Chain and Clear Lakes, Spring Pond, several small trout ponds and frontage on the Osgood River. A fisherman’s paradise offering trophy bass and pike. The main lodge with 9 bedrooms and 5 full baths was constructed in the early 1920’s and overlooks Chain Lake to the south. Spacious living and dining rooms – each with a cut-stone fireplace lend an aura of Great Camp style. A three slip boathouse affords storage for boats and fishing gear and an elevated screen pavilion overlooks Clear Lake. Additional buildings from the original camp circa 1890 provide storage and await re-use. Conveniently located just 15 miles from the Village of Saranac Lake and the Adirondack Regional Airport.
