Yogi's post about building a mall on his wonderful Turkey Mountain made me think about the area.
We attended their open house in 2013.
It's on old farm land, wisely replanted with pines many years ago, and there are many critters here. The main house is a beautiful old stone building. It must have been a thriving farm in its day. The land has been divided up into 27 parcels (their map is here) of 2 - 5 acres, with a border of protected wetland.
They've scoured trails out of the woods, and the deer are happy to use these for their benefit.
|There is a new road in.|
Not on the map yet.
It's off of Elm Grove Rd.,
scraped out of forest.
They bashed through rock for months,
using noisy hammers.
|Otty Lake - Max depth 60'!|
Otty Woods - just above "60" above.
|The region was scoured by glaciers.|
Many shallow lakes, now infested with Zebra mussels.
|The shoreline is at maximum capacity.|
The old farmhouse is to the left of the word 'Otty'
