Ragged Mountain Camp, built just above the Blue Ridge Road, is a lovely and historic camp which borders state land and the newly acquired Boreas Ponds Wilderness. The owners did an extensive renovation/restoration in 2005, adding insulation, Anderson windows, new plumbing, wiring and a 2nd floor master bedroom suite which resulted in a modernized solar powered camp, set up for year round use and enjoyment. Other features include a new septic, 400′ drilled well, 48 volt solar power system/Outback inverter, a 20kw generator and walking/ski trails through the almost 32 acres. It is truly a magical and charming little “Great Camp”! For more information, check out the the homeowner’s website.
Steven Engelhart, Executive Director of Adirondack Architectural Heritage wrote this about Ragged Mountain Camp: “While Great Camps like Santanoni, Sagamore, Pine Knot and White Pine Camp get the lion’s share of public attention because they premier examples of regional rustic architecture, the Adirondacks also has hundreds of small rustic camps that embody many of the same qualities-magnificent settings and the widespread use of native rustic materials, all to create lovely intimate spaces for recreation and gathering. Ragged Mountain Camp is among the best of these smaller rustic camps in the region”.
