Nope, this is not elf housing at the North Pole toy factory. It’s a vintage log cabin in Schoharie County, NY, just east of the Gilboa Dam…
This week on Upstater, we’ve been searching for real estate in the Winter Wonderlands of the Catskill Mountains. Here’s a property that fits right in with the Winter Wonderland that surrounds it, like it’s made of gingerbread and marshmallow fluff.
Whimsy aside, this cabin is no seasonal clapboard bungalow. It’s a well-constructed, year-round, 1960s cottage with stone walls, updated features like a new well, septic with 1,200-gallon tank, metal roof, and windows also included. The living room wood stove provides plenty of warmth for the 976-square-foot space.
The eat-in kitchen is small but functional, and two bedrooms make it possible to bring the kids or friends along for lake-side excursions any time of the year.
Hubbard Lake is a private, non-motorized lake in Gilboa, Schoharie County, about 40 minutes north of Hunter Mountain. The lake community fees are around $75 per year, according to the listing, which grants you access to the lake for kayaking and canoeing.
Your little slice of Hubbard Lake paradise is just under an acre in size and comes with two storage sheds, an outhouse, and a row boat for paddles around the lake. There’s also an old in-ground pool, which you’d have to fill in…or replace with another pool, perhaps?
