The Landon Hill B&B $375,000


Welcome to the historic Landon Hill Inn in one of the Adirondacks oldest towns. Once
known better as the Sunset Camp boarding house, this home is also formerly
recognized as one of the original properties in Chestertown that has resided along the
infamous route rum runners travelled from NYC to Canada during the prohibition era..
This authentic circa 1860 classic Queen Anne style Victorian is loaded with character
and charm. The property neighbors Dynamite Hill, a local ski hill, and abuts the Caroline
Fish Memorial Park, consisting of 7 miles of beautifully maintained cross country ski
trails, including lighting for night skiing! This will remain forever protected, as will the
investment one makes in the Inn, buffered from Route 8, yet a cornerstone location for
business, and less than 1.5 miles to I-87 (ADK Northway) to access Bolton Landing,
Lake George, Lake Placid, Saratoga Springs, Glens Falls, Queensbury, and even
Canada!
Currently, the home is arranged as a B&B with proprietor’s quarters with an independent
kitchen, living area, bedroom and bathroom. The 5 guest bedrooms are all equally
spacious, illuminated with natural light, hardwood floors, and all have high ceilings and
updated or refurbished bathrooms. Among them is a 1st floor master suite with a private
bathroom. The remaining four guest bedrooms are on the second floor, with an ornate
spiral Austenian staircase showcasing the assent.
Upon entering the home one is immediately greeted by well cared for caramel oak floors,
and a decorative wood burning cast iron stove. The formal dining room beckons for an
overflow of guests or intimate holiday gatherings. Handsome beam work and elegant
archways accent each room. The kitchen, while modest, is purely functional with all
major appliances and has a quaint breakfast nook overlooking the expansive south
facing yard.
In the late spring and early summer, the 2.64 acre lot is decorated with perennial
gardens including explosive lilies and peonies, and enveloped by soft fluffy and festive
snow in the winter. The grounds can be admired and enjoyed from a rocking chair
covered porch or a spacious screened in side porch. The Gore Mountain ski center is a
mere 20 minute scenic drive. Numerous restaurants and boutiques, typical of a ski
resort environment are on every ½ mile stretch of road. This property is less than a 1/4
mile walk from downtown Chestertown’s several restaurants, café’s, boutiques, and
other shopping and services facilities.
This property is not just ideal for winter enthusiasts. It is a full, four season destination
location, just 7 minutes to the Loon or Brant lakes’ public launches and beaches, the
Schroon and Hudson Rivers, as well as just a 15 minute drive to Lake George! Even
accessing Saratoga Springs during track season is a cinch. Just jump on I-87 and 45
minutes later, you’re there!
The property lends itself to numerous possibilities. The Landon Hill Inn or Landon house
is perfectly fit for a ski or vacation compound, private single family home, or even
temporary housing for people relocating to the area for specific employment. It has been
featured in several local writers’ works and is truly a landmark location and has been
embraced by its owners for nearly 20 years.
