Here's a chance to own a piece of history, The Lodge,The Cottage and 3 outbuildings (Ice House, Studio and Work Shop Garage) were part of the original J. Ogden Armour Estate an American Meat Packing Magnate from Chicago. (The original land managers home (The Lodge) and chauffeurs home (Ernie's Cabin) were converted in 1962 to serve as the mess hall/infirmary for the Timbers Girl Scout Camp). The setting is incredibly extraordinary, with stone lined walkways amidst towering trees. Adjacent to the Timbers Recreational Area a 279 acre nature area with 1800' of Long Lake frontage and also encompasses all of Paige and Fern Lake. This 6 acre estate includes 2 homes, a 5 BR Lodge and 3 BR Cottage, each completely remodeled from stem to stern in 2015. Other highlights include a true 'Chefs Kitchen' ideal for family get togethers or entertaining. The main floor master suite has stunning 270 degree views of old growth forests that surround you. This is "A One of a Kind Property" with a truly intrinsic "Up North Feel". You are only steps away to the sandy beaches of Long Lake.
