Location: Long Lake, N.Y.
Price: $6.495 million
The Skinny: The brokers behind the listing of this Adirondack "great camp" are quick to point out that the night photography has not been "Photoshopped." Why? Because the long-exposure photos reveal some breathtaking views of the stars, not obscured by light pollution. That prime stargazing is at least partly due to the remote location of this lakefront compound, some five hours’ drive from New York City, but the listing has several solutions to that problem as well — it has a grassy helipad and a seaplane dock. The historic 13-building compound was founded in 1903 and features an original, summer-only lodge, a newer, insulated lodge, and 42 gated acres. Power is supplied by solar panels, while a wood-fired furnace provides heat, to the $6.5 million estate.
