Bassett Mountain, the home of the former Paleface Mountain Ski Area, has been carefully planned and refitted into a world class, private retreat property complete with a 4-story mountaintop estate home, a separate lodge with commercial kitchen, numerous bedrooms, office and conference space, indoor pool, and miles of trails in the very heart of the Adirondack High Peaks. This 1,140-acre estate boasts two mountain tops with spectacular 360-degree views to Whiteface Mountain and the surrounding high peaks, well-kept pristine forests, alpine trails, and trails suitable for hiking, trail running, XC skiing, 4-wheeling and snowmobiling. The property is very private and secluded, yet is in close proximity to Lake Placid, Whiteface Mountain and the Olympic venues, world class fly fishing in the Ausable River and hiking in the Adirondack Mountains. If you have ever dreamt of your own mountaintop kingdom, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity.
