Searching for an Adirondack lake
We've been looking for a lake in the Adirondacks to either purchase a camp or land to put a camp/cabin on some day. Ideally it would be on the smaller size.... lake George way too big and busy.... we love to SUP and kayak. Love the feel of the Goodnow Flow in Newcomb but the pieces of land we were looking at there were sold. Budget is $100,000 or under for land. Obviously more for a camp/cabin.... but hoping not to go over $200,000 if that's even possible.....

I've looked at realtor websites but thought I would check other places as well as you never know someone who knows someone who wants to sell land/property/etc.....

Looking specifically in Warren, Essex, Hamilton or Herkimer counties. Any leads would be great.....

I'm not a realtor, but did grow up in the foothills of the Adirondacks. Are you familiar with Horseshoe Lake or Moose Lake near Tupper Lake? Blue Mountain Lake, farther east is beautiful, somewhat discovered.

Thank you so much, meggies! I will definitely check into those lakes!

Thurman Pond. I rented a house there one summer and it was bliss. At that time there were no motor craft allowed. Please let us know what you find.
