Well, your chance has arrived. Presenting the former "River View Inn," also affectionately known as Ferdon's Hillside Summer House. This remarkable property sprawls over 75 acres of scenic beauty, offering a plethora of opportunities for those with a vision.

The inn itself boasts two 2-bedroom apartments, 9 guest rooms with 2 shared full baths, and a private 2-bedroom home discreetly nestled above the inn and its picturesque gardens. But that's just the beginning of what this property has to offer.

What makes this property even more captivating is its frontage on the Beaverkill River, situated just above Junction Pool. For those who appreciate the allure of water and its potential, this feature alone is a gem waiting to be polished.

Intriguingly, back in 1989, the previous owners had laid the groundwork for a potential sub-division with the help of consulting engineers. This opportunity remains untapped, patiently waiting for the next visionary entrepreneur or developer to seize it. By creating much-needed buildable lots in Roscoe, you could be instrumental in transforming this area.

The location couldn't be more enticing – less than a mile from downtown Roscoe, approximately 3000 feet from the banks of Junction Pool, and within walking distance to Ferdun's pool. Minutes away, you'll discover Barnhart and Hendrickson pools, along with numerous historic and still highly regarded fishing spots.

For those who cherish the great outdoors, the property boasts extensive gardens and trails on the premises, adding a touch of natural splendor and providing countless opportunities for outdoor enjoyment.
