This property offers afforadility with unique amentities not typically found with individual proerpty rentals. The 40 acre campus provides a true Adirondacl experience
We are very pleased to be able to go back to where we spent many weeks at this campus: teaching Elderhostle courses with other SUNY Potsdam faculty was a blast. We were sad when the college sold this property over a decade ago. The only down side (for us) was the wi-fi. Why spend time staring at a lap top when beautiful Star Lake beacons with canoeing, swimming, hiking, cool nights, etc. etc?
