Property description

“Camp Wildacres”, privately situated at the northern end of the “Crater Club”, located on the western shores of Lake Champlain, was built c.1928, reflecting the rustic simplicity of the Adirondack Great Camps. With its 4600 sq ft, it is the largest camp constructed in the Club. Unique details include a large stone fireplace with a 38ft high chimney in the “Great Room” that flows to an expansive screened porch with views of Lake Champlain. A library with full bath, a formal dining room that connects to a large country kitchen through a butler’s pantry, and a master bedroom with fireplace and updated full bathroom complete the 1stfloor. Large windows throughout the house allow light in from all angles. 2ndfloor bedrooms include one with a fireplace, two with private full baths and 2 that share a full bath. The home is furnished with many rustic pieces built by renowned local Adirondack craftsmen. While maintaining the many historically important features, the camp has undergone many improvements including updated electric, septic, roof and structural foundation. Step back in time and enjoy the simpler life walking the private dirt roads that connect the club to its many amenities including a large beach with stone dock, large clubhouse, tennis courts and adult and children’s activities. All 5 minutes from the Hamlet of Essex with a year round ferry to Vermont, 45 minutes to Lake Placid, 11 miles to NY State Northway and 90 miles to Montreal.
