New York land with seasonal cottage on Lake Desolation for sale. The Lake Desolation Fishing Cottage is a rustic retreat with lake access and picturesque views, located on 68-acre Lake Desolation in northern Saratoga County, at the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains. Constructed in 1950 and under the care of the current family since 1978, this property offers the opportunity to attain an affordable lakefront retreat only 20 minutes from downtown Saratoga Springs. This property is a 3-season cottage, rustic in appearance and minimal in amenities. Electric service is wired into the cottage, but there is currently no water or septic. This property offers the opportunity to modernize the existing cottage to enhance comfort and longer-term use. Alternatively, the buyer may decide to remove the cottage completely and rebuild--a modern camp, cottage, or year-round home. The Cottage has expansive views of Lake Desolation, which is a private lake reserved for those with access and frontage. The Lake provides a wide range of recreational activities, including canoeing, kayaking, fishing, ice skating, and snowmobiling. The Lake Desolation Fishing Cottage is within a very short drive to thousands of acres of state-owned and conservation easement lands allowing for multiple use with public access. Tinny's Tavern, the local eatery and watering hole for 70-years, is within easy walking distance. All items currently on the property and within the cottage transfer with the sale.
