135 acres of prime recreational land with a 30 acre pond in the Town of Mooers
Located on ~135 of the original 395 acres, in the Northwest corner of the Town of Mooers, NY is The Churubusco Lodge – Beaver Pond Forest. The centerpiece of the property is a huge pond with several excellent private and secluded cabin settings offering beautiful views. Several year round brooks traverse the property, all empty into Beaver & Lodge Ponds. On the northern border, and almost 2000 acres in size, lies “The Gulf” Unique Area owned by NYS, so named for the gorge running through the land, several hundred feet deep. From the northern border a 10 minute walk places you at the edge of the gorge. Not far from the gorge lie the remains of Sam Smith’s cabin. More on the ‘Hermit of the Gulf’ may be found in the owner’s narrative included in this listing. Another interesting feature found on this parcel is Charle’s spring, a source of cool, clear water enjoyed by generations of this areas inhabitants. Well established roads and trails on the property allow biking, hiking, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, snowmobiling, and ATVing. Access to the property is at the terminus of Drown Road, through an imposing 8 foot gate. Drown Road is a hardtop road to within 1.25 miles of the C. Lodge property. Beyond the hardtop is a seasonal road, not maintained in winter. That portion could be plowed if winter entry is desired. The present Lodge owners have frequently accessed the property in the winter. Cellular communication is limited at present, however 4G service should be energized in the near future. Power ends at the hardtop. The hardwood forests in this section of the property once supported a maple sugar bush operation with over 10,500 taps. It was carefully logged in 2006, by a veteran logger, overseen by a professional forester. The residual stands are made up of sugar and red maple, white, gray and yellow birch, beech, ash, aspen and many other species, including hemlock, spruce & fir. The emerging growth is a favorite forage of deer and provides both food and cover for other wildlife, especially ruffed grouse. Hunters and wildlife enthusiasts will enjoy the exciting opportunities to hunt, view and photograph whitetails, black bear, coyote, partridge, Canada geese, ducks, snowshoe hare, woodcock and squirrel.
