Located on the grounds of a former Boy Scout camp, this entire property has that ‘up north’ feel. With over 100 acres of common property, on private all-sports Washington Lake, it is a serene retreat, nature preserve, and a family recreational area all combined into one. Several miles of groomed trails are ideal for quiet walks, hiking, mountain biking, cross country skiing or horseback riding. For horse owners, there’s a horse stable and four pastures. The abundant wildlife on the property includes deer, turkey, fox and Sandhill Cranes. A private bow-hunting area is ideal for deer and turkey hunters. And at several locations around the property are natural wood carvings and statuary harking back to the days of the Boy Scout camp.
Water features include several ponds and Washington Lake. The common grounds include a concrete boat launch and sandy beach area. Because the lake has no public access, owners can enjoy all water sports, including the privacy for canoeing and kayaking. And the fishing is excellent, year round, for bass, Northern pike and other varieties.
There are numerous family gathering spots on the grounds, ideal for camping, storytelling and relaxing. A nature lookout is ideal for watching wildlife on the pond and star gazing. And the property includes a guest cabin, with kitchen, bathroom and fireplace. And if that’s not enough, the property includes a private landing strip, a private cemetery with a gazebo, and a chapel, with stained glass windows.
Perhaps best yet is the fact that all of the common grounds are maintained by a long-term caretaker, for a modest monthly fee per property owner.
For those who seek it all, this property has it. Family and friends, children and grandchildren, can all gather to enjoy fishing, water sports, hunting, hiking, horses, cross-country skiing, and relaxing, all year round, in a private, serene setting, surrounded by nature, outstanding scenery, groomed trails and natural carved statuary.
