Itchin’ for a place to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life? Check out this seven-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bath listing in upstate New York. Located in the Adirondacks on the southeasterly shore of Upper Saranac Lake, the property is known as Camp Dancing Waters.
It was constructed from 1898-1903, once owned by Alix Stanley of Stanley Tools, and sits on 24.5 acres of land with 1,200 feet of shoreline on a peninsula. The main house features a double-decker wraparound porch, covered below and screened-in above, with four fireplaces and an enclosed glass sunroom for reading.
But the most striking building on the property is the boathouse. Designed with a distinctive drive-thru passageway for two large boats, the boathouse also features an upstairs game room and an eyebrow roof dormer. A matching gazebo perches on a nearby rocky point, and taken together, the property is the definition of lakefront relaxation.
