Known as the “Mays Pond tract” and offered for sale on the open market through real estate broker LandVest, the property includes a rustic cabin and will continue to be used as a private wilderness retreat, just as it has for more than 70 years.
The conservation easement, which limits development and prohibits subdivision, is designed to protect the tract’s significant forest, wildlife and aquatic habitats, including 3,300 feet of undeveloped shoreline on 30-acre Mays Pond, 40 acres of wetlands, and a stretch of Constable Brook, a free-flowing tributary of Big Moose Lake.
“We’re delighted to have found a conservation-minded buyer for Mays Pond and to be opening a new chapter of cooperative stewardship,” said Michael Carr, Executive Director of the Adirondack Land Trust. “The buyer comes from a family with multi-generational ties to the Inlet area and tells us she ‘feels blessed to be the owner of such a beautiful piece of the Adirondacks.’”
“This is an excellent conservation outcome for a very special property,” added Carr.
