If you have ever dreamed of owning an Adirondack Mountain, this is the property for you!

Bassett Mountain was once the home of the former Paleface Mountain Ski Area which was in operation from 1961 to the early 1980's. Operated as an all-inclusive Adirondack Resort, this historic Adirondacks property once was home to a bar, restaurant, indoor pool, and ski trails. This grand estate has been carefully planned and refitted into a world-class, private residential retreat complete with a 4-story mountaintop estate home, a separate base lodge with numerous bedrooms, office space, indoor pool, and miles of hiking and ski trails in the very heart of the Adirondack High Peaks.

This 1,140-acre mountain estate boasts two mountain peaks with spectacular 360-degree views of Whiteface Mountain and the surrounding Adirondack high peaks, well-kept pristine forests, alpine trails, and trails suitable for hiking, trail running, XC skiing, 4-wheeling, and snowmobiling. The property is very private and secluded, yet is in close proximity to Lake Placid, Whiteface Mountain and the Olympic venues, world-class fly fishing in the Ausable River, and hiking in the Adirondack Mountains. 

Opportunities to buy an Adirondack Mountain and historic ski resort don't come up every day. Don't miss this chance to own a piece of historic real estate!
