on 2 acres with a pond,
in front of an early 1800s cemetery, on
the south side of 276 acres of NYS DEC White Pond Multiple Use Area, giving us the feel of 280 acres of heaven on the edge of a one-mile fresh water spring fed pond that is
open to the public as a carry in-carry out recreation area in use summer and winter.
