Sowbird Lake is a pristine sanctuary in the foothills of the Adirondack Mts in NYS.It is a manmade lake fed by Little Woodhull Creek.
We have an abundance of wildlife. We are especially protective of our Loon couple.
There is a lake association with a covenant that states the 5 acre lots can be divided only once so it is very private.This allows ample parking on your own lot It is a newer development so all the homes are well maintained.
It is very quiet as there are kayaks & canoes only to paddle the 2 mi lake.
The lake is stocked with trout so the fishing is good. It is 1/2 hr to Old Forge orUtica..
There are numerous hikes in the area. There is a snowmobile club 2 mi away with trails outside the lake properties.
It is outside the Adirondack park so the codes aren't as strict and it is much more affordable.
