189.1 acres with frontage on the Oswegatchie River in the Town of DePeyster
What a wonderful part of NYS this is! A resurrection of the traditional dairy farm has occurred in this region of upstate NY as Amish families find this area suits their peaceful nature and conservative way of life.
The jewel of this property is the ~2,600′ of frontage on the Oswegatchie River. The shoreline is easily accessible and one can launch a row boat, canoe or kayak without much difficulty. Throw in your clubs along with your fishing pole to enjoy the best of both sports, as Deerfield Golf Course is on the opposite shore! During the spring of the year red-winged black birds help identify the roughly 70 acres of wetland and beaver meadows. Approximately 40 acres of hay fields on the property, combined with the neighbors corn, attract all the north country favorites, including deer, turkey, grouse and geese. I saw all four during my initial visit. About 80 acres is dominated by hardwood forest where sapling to medium sawtimber oak, maple, hickory, basswood and aspen thrive in the rich bottom-land soils.
The famous Black Lake is accessible by boat from this property. Just head north and take a left at the ‘y’ in the river to enter the outlet of the Lake. I grew up not far from here and spent a good share of my summers fishing the Oswegatchie and winters fishing on the ice of Black Lake. Often referred to as “Nature’s Fish Hatchery”, it is the largest and most diverse of the many Indian River lakes. The lakes most dominant game fish are the small and large mouth bass, northern pike, perch, crappie, and walleye. And if you desire bigger water or woods head 20 minutes north to the St. Lawrence River, or 40 minutes south to the Adirondacks. So much to see and do near the end of Spile Bridge Road, once you’re here, you won’t want to leave!
