Only minutes from Northville and the Great Sacandaga Lake, with plenty of public boating access, Rice Road Retreat property offers abundant game signs, showing good potential for a favorable hunt.  This secluded woodlot also provides an opportunity to site a private cabin or a home. 
The 64 acres have been surveyed by the current owner, establishing with certainty the actual acreage, property corners, and boundaries.  Because the property has not been timbered in nearly 20 years, forest is mature and stately in appearance.  The diverse mix of softwood and hardwood species includes hemlock, white pine, red spruce, white ash, red maple, and yellow birch. 
An unnamed creek, originating from a pond on Rice Road and joining East Stony Creek, passes through this property for a short distance, offering an aesthetic feature to be enjoyed by the new owner.  In addition to this creek, there is a small seasonal stream on the property that serves as a watering hole for transient wildlife.

The property has 228-feet of road frontage on a year-round town maintained road.  Electric is at the roadside.  Rice Road is a dead-end road, with very little traffic other than the adjacent residents. 
The Rice Road Retreat property would be an excellent rifle or bow hunting parcel.  Water is available via seeps and streams and food plots could be strategically located.  There is an 800’ powerline right-of-way passing through the NE corner that would be a great location for a food plot; there is no need for cutting or stumping the ground, so the hard work has already been done.  Wildlife signs were observed for whitetail deer, turkey, fisher, and coyote.  The region is also noted for bear and moose sightings.   
This property is within minutes of over 500,000 continuous acres of State Forest Preserve, publicly-accessible for recreational pursuits including backcountry camping, fishing, hiking, and hunting.  East Stony Creek and the Sacandaga River offer world-class rafting, kayaking, and fishing.  The property is only 7 miles from the Great Sacandaga Lake, with public launches at Northville, as well as marinas and boat-accessible lakefront restaurants.  Gore Mountain is less than an hour from the property, so the ski slopes are also within reach.     
The Rice Road Retreat is 7 miles from Northville, for easy access to amenities, including groceries, gas, hardware, and dining.  It is less than an hour off Exit 27 of the NYS Thruway, under an hour from Saratoga Springs, 2.5 hours from Syracuse, and 4 hours from NYC.  There are several small airports in the region that could shorten your commute to this fantastic Adirondack property.
