Watch Rock Point is the Perfect Family Compound, Offering Subdivision Potential While Still Maintaining the Privacy and Integrity of this Classic Camp

Idyllically situated on the western shore of Long Lake in the Central Adirondacks, Watch Rock Point is an exceptional circa 1890's family compound that boasts 90 sub-dividable acres of sprawling grounds and 2,800 feet of coveted waterfront.

As one of the area’s few remaining significant tracts of shoreline property that has not been subdivided since its origins in 1898, this presents a rare opportunity for the unique buyer seeking the ultimate in a private, scenic mountain retreat.

Surrounded by Beauty. Peaceful, picture-perfect environs that make you feel in a world all your own. From any vantage point, one can’t help but be captivated by the most exquisite vistas of tranquil water and mountainous grandeur, with views that encompass thousands of acres of state land and stretch all the way to the Adirondack High Peaks. Pristine lake views meld with blueness of the sky, and are in company with nature’s other spectacular images such as a sandy beach that rises to granite cliffs, giant erratics, magical forest and pastoral greenery at every turn.

Welcomed Seclusion, with Generous Guest Accommodations. To access this breathtaking property, you are guided down a private gated road that is shared by only eight other estate properties along six miles of shoreline. Housed separately on the serene grounds is a wonderful Main Lodge, Guide House and Guest Cabin that provide plentiful, comfortable accommodations for family and friends.

Built in 1898 by Judge George Terry, the main house, guest house and cottage have 9 bedrooms, 6 full baths and 2 half baths, perched by the water. All have been lovingly maintained by the current owners of 30 years. The interior exudes a gracious ambiance blending rustic charm with Victorian elegance for relaxing and entertaining. Arched windows, five brick and stone fireplaces, rich wood floors, tasteful built-ins and fabulous woodwork are among the distinctive highlights throughout that add substantial character.

The inviting living room offers wonderful views across the lake all the way to the High Peaks, as does the cozy windowed sitting area that also gazes out at the mountains to the east and west of the lake. Awe-inspiring scenery is further showcased in the main level’s reading nook, the dining room, kitchen and corner windowed breakfast area, as well as upstairs on the master bedroom balcony overlooking the lake and mountains.

Additional Structures and Offerings. The Guide House is quaint, beautiful, and as meticulously cared for, with 4 bedrooms, 3 full baths, a full kitchen, covered front porch that faces the lake and mountains, and a lovely lily pond right nearby.

The property also has a Guest Cabin with 2 bedrooms and one bath, a brick wine cellar, covered boat slips, boat house, workshop with space for a tractor or lawnmowers, covered boat slips and docks, original outhouse, wood shed, icehouse, 3 lean-tos at the water’s edge, party/exercise building, plus a sandy beach, tennis court. Select original furnishings and boats are also included in this major offering including a restored 1927 triple cockpit Chris Craft.

This property is a haven for boaters, and is also connected to a snow mobile trail system. A 20kw generator and battery system delivers power to all buildings.

A Prized Location. Long Lake in Adirondack Park is the geographic center of the Adirondacks, and the start of the Roosevelt-March Trail. Watch Rock Point is located four miles north of town, on the west side of Long Lake. On the east side of the lake is Forest Preserve-State Land, which can also be viewed from the property.

Within its borders, Watch Rock Point is a haven for its inhabitants, and the ultimate family gathering spot where all can enjoy nature’s splendor, an abundance of sports and recreational activities, priceless together time, and years of lasting memories.
