Rare Island Property on Beautiful Nicatous Lake
8-acre private Butterfield Island on the 5000-acre Nicatous Lake! With 21,000 acres and 34 miles of shoreline in conservation easement in the area, much of Nicatous Lake is not developed with the beauty protected and ''forever wild''. A legacy property, it is a perfect setting for a family compound, retreat/event center, short-term rental, or summer camp.
The property begins on the deeded lot on the mainland with boat house, parking and private dock for the boats. The large, fully furnished, self-sufficient compound features 2 main lodges and 3 sleep cabins to accommodate a large group. Additional structures include a tool shed, generator shed, 2 docks, woodshed, and outhouse.
The Great Lodge (c.2004) is open-concept with a modern kitchen, dining area, living area, sunporch bedroom and loft bedroom. Modern amenities include propane powered kitchen stove, refrigerator and water heater. The oversized deck encourages outdoor living and is a favorite for sunsets. The historic Butterfield Lodge (c. 1926), provides a multipurpose living area with a fieldstone fireplace, kitchenette, and bathing room (clawfoot tub, sink, and shower). Guests can snuggle in for the night in the loft.
The large covered porch has timeless views of the common area and lake. The 3 sleeping cabins (c. 1930's) feature wood stoves, newer beds, and privacy. Arranged in a semicircle, the buildings open onto the common area for gathering at the 8 picnic tables, oversized firepit and 30-foot event tent.
On the practical side of island living, power is supplied by a newer diesel generator for all buildings' lights, electrical outlets, and smaller kitchen appliances. Ready to install are a new battery system and solar panels with inverter ($15,000+ value). Propane tanks power the large kitchen appliances and hot water. Turn-key, the sale includes 4 motorboats, 3 docks, a Honda ATV with trailer, Bobcat E10 excavator, and 3 gas powered generators.
