River Ranch is an elegant home with a unique combination of Rustic Ranch and Adirondack Decor that sleeps 12 with 6 bedrooms & 4.5 baths. Two separate bedroom wings make the house ideal for two families. The property is situated on 300 acres, and the Ranch is highlighted with fine antique furniture, and two majestic stone fireplaces.
What sets River Ranch apart is its privacy, stunning views of the Adirondack Mountains, proximity to all of the Lake Placid Olympic Venues, and exclusivity of this beautiful estate. The enjoyment and serenity of 'The Plains of Abraham', one of the most photographed scenes in the Adirondacks, can be viewed from all over the property. The majesty of the 4,000 foot tall Adirondack High Peaks is unparalleled. If you're seeking luxury and adventure this is the property for you.
A quarter mile driveway adds to the privacy of the 300 acres of open fields, forests, and the Ausable River. There is a 10 mile network of groomed / marked trails on the property, perfect for cross country skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, running, biking, hunting, fishing, and horseback riding. Sleigh rides or dogsled rides may be arranged. The trails provide private access to the Ausable River, world famous for its fishing.
The property is minutes from main street Lake Placid. Only 8 miles from Whiteface (the world famous Olympic Mt), home of the highest vertical drop in the East & top snowmaking. Skiing for all levels of ability. Five championship golf courses are minutes away. River Ranch is located just 2 miles from both the Lake Placid Horse Show grounds and the Lake Placid Airport, for private planes, including small jets.
Many of the fields are mowed and provide one of the most scenic locations for weddings or private events in Lake Placid. The Great Room is accentuated by beautiful, hand hewn wood beams, wagon wheel chandeliers, and an incredible floor to ceiling stone fireplace with Elk head. This is the perfect venue for family reunions, weddings or corporate events. A second large gathering room on the lower level could serve many purposes, outfitted with a bar, a second large fireplace, flat screen tv, ping pong, and card tables. This room is a great “playroom”, corporate conference room, or secondary gathering space.
River Ranch offers an unrivaled vacation experience in the midst of the Lake Placid Olympic Park, “The Heart of the Adirondacks”.
