Camp Limberlost, a luxury compound with 5 living structures and 913 feet of lake frontage along the elite Upper St. Regis Lake in New York, will be sold at auction without reserve by Platinum Luxury Auctions on August 14th, 2021. Previously listed at $10.2 million, this Great Camp is located on upstate NY’s most prestigious lake where iconic American families like the Rockefellers, the Vanderbilts, the Pratts, and the Whitneys have called home.
Members of some of America’s most famous families, like Marjorie Merriweather Post (daughter of C. W. Post, founder of General Foods), built camps at the lake in the early 1900’s. These influential residents welcomed to the lake nearly every sitting U.S. President since the 1950’s. Upper St. Regis has also hosted U.S. Supreme Court justices and Secretaries of State, foreign dignitaries such as Tony Blair and Mikhail Gorbachev, and famous artists such as Winslow Homer.
Camp Limberlost includes 5 total living structures, with a total of 17 bedrooms, 11 full and 4 half-baths – all suitable for year-round living. A two-story boathouse and adjacent residence are located directly along the property’s 900 feet of lake frontage.
There is a boathouse that includes four covered boat slips, a rolling launch and dry storage for multiple guide boats, and a separate canoe house with a covered slip and dry storage, in addition to a large, u-shaped dock able to accommodate several small-to-medium boats.
A waterfront great room features 20-ft ceilings, exposed wood beams, and a hand-laid stone fireplace, in addition to a private elevator, multiple offices, prep, and commercial-grade kitchens, and an indoor “lap pool.” Grounds include a private boardwalk that winds through the property’s forested areas.
Camp Limberlost is less than 10 minutes from the Adirondack Regional Airport (able to accommodate large jets) and within 30 mins of Lake Placid and Saranac Lake. It is directly accessible via roadway.
Platinum was retained by the property owner to handle the sale in cooperation with listing brokerage Engel & Völkers Lake Placid Real Estate, led by listing agent Colleen Holmes.
