    Property Details

    Tolkien Forest Wonderland on the Vernooy Kill in Napanoch. Access can be from Lundy Rd or from Upper Jenny Brook Rd. This Adirondack style lodge with hints of Japanese architecture is a simple but elegant gentleman's get-away camp set in a mature forest nestled within a bed of moss, ferns and giant rhododendron surrounded by an historic trout hatchery with a dozen pools. Enter this remarkable estate through a primordial forest curated as an artisanal wilderness retreat. The eventual buyer will know immediately and fall in love with this unique property. The hand built custom lodge with a Japanese motif roof-line is highlighted by a massive stone fireplace with two hearths. One of the fireplaces charms the indoors and the other dominates the large screened summer living room. The cathedral ceiling home has wrought iron bars reinforcing the structure, selected barnwood is used for the interior walls and floors give an ambiance of warmth and comfort for peace filled time when on retreat within the massive centenarian forest. Architectural details include blacksmith door and structural hardware, clear cedar trim around windows, lead plate caps on deck posts, copper flashing around the chimney, thick cedar shake shingles, Adirondack style thick slab-wood siding, heavy insulation and it is all surrounded by 30 to 48 diameter OLD TREES -- think of an enchanted friendly forest. A craftsman built utility garage houses the tools and equipment used to maintain the grounds of the estate. There is no interference from electronic media in this off-the-grid escape as you will be surrounded only by the pristine sounds of the streams and wind through the branches. A half mile of the renowned Vernooy Kill, a world class trout river, runs through the property and adjoins additional miles of the stream within thousands of acres of NY State Forever Wild Forest around three sides. Meander along the paths among the arboreal grandeur of the uncut forest and along the river and streams that feed the ponds and pools. The estate is a portion of the historic, but now gone, Yama Farms Resort Hotel. It was frequented by the rich and famous during the early 1900's with familiar names such as Roosevelt, Ford, Firestone, Cody, Burroughs, Te Ata Fisher, and Chase. As a portion of the Yama Farms, this stream filled wonderland once produced thousands of brook trout for restaurants around the northeast. The pure water of its streams was recently considered as a primary source for a renowned water bottling company. See the aerial video at this link: Less than two hours from NY City, but make no mistake as this location is isolated. Plan on coming here to relax in rustic comfort with the simplest though elegant accommodations and meditate among giant rhododendrons and a cathedral of forest.
