Beautiful lakefront and lakeview property
Thousand Acres, the most prominent terrain in the southern part of the Lake, is roughly 1.5 miles square and includes over eight miles of lake shoreline. The property is surrounded on three sides by water. It is dominated on its north side by the mile-long ridge of Little Snaggy Mountain, which rises just under 400 feet above the water. A saddle across Little Snaggy opens onto Sawmill Hollow, where one of the county’s major sawmills was located in the late 1800’s. The southern portion of the property includes gently sloping meadows and woodlands, along with the springs and glades of several old family farms. Nestled between the north and south are the rolling hollows and spring-fed streams of Poland Run. The entire area was one of the favorite hunting and fishing grounds of Meshach Browning, whose autobiography, "Forty-Four Years in the Life of a Hunter", is the most famous description of life in Garrett County in the 19th century.
