Camp Vivian on Rainbow Lake

'Vivian Cottage' is a designer restored, turn of the century, four bedroom Victorian Cottage on Hogback Island in beautiful, unspoiled Rainbow Lake, [a lake with primarily protected shores, near Upper St. Regis Lake, Lake Placid, and Saranac Lake], in the Adirondack Mountains of New York. It has 200’ of waterfront, with docks on both east and west shores, as well as on the mainland.

It has a beautiful Rustic boathouse on island, (two slips and a dry slip), with a romantic apartment for two above. Both buildings have screen porches toward (or over) the water, and are full of antiques and artwork. There are twelve miles of boating through Rainbow Lake, Rainbow Narrows, and Lake Kushaqua -- and there is great fishing. A restored, classic 1949 mahogany Chris Craft Special Runabout is available and negotiable, to be possibly included.

The cottage has a parlor, kitchen, dining porch, new bath room with shower, four bedrooms, and a playroom. Boat house over water has bedroom, anti room, tiny kitchen and toilet. Many cottage and boathouse furnishings are available to be included.

Vivian has parking and a signature Rustic 'bark-on stickwork' covered slip on the mainland. There is another motorboat there for transportation. On the island (it is 100ft. wide by 4 miles long, by the way), there are docks with Adirondack chairs, on both east and west sides, allowing for incredible sunrises (we never see them) and sunsets. Vivian has great swimming -- a small beach and sandy bottom, with crystal clean water. There is a hiking trail down the middle of the island. Biking in the area is unparalleled, with incredible beauty, perfect bike paths, and almost no cars. Island is ~500’ from mainland.

Beautiful Vivian Cottage is like nowhere else, and we are looking for folks sensitive to a fragile island environment, respectful of the neighbors, and loving a very special antique. $333,000
