It's 1,518 sf consists of; 4 bedrooms (with lots of beds), one bathroom with shower, a kitchen, living and dining rooms. Interior wall and ceiling finishes include; paneling and tongue and groove knotty pine lumber. The exterior siding is wood clapboards. The new, painted steel roof quickly sheds snow on a warm winter day. The main source of heat is a wood stove insert in the living room fireplace.

Both open and screened-in porches are other attributes of this comfortable camp in the pines. The adjacent, vacant ¼ acre lot to the west of the cottage is included and could be built upon or just mowed for recreational use.
The cottage was originally built in the early 1800's in conjunction with the famous Fenton House Hotel. Number Four was a popular destination for sportsmen and those who loved the woods. Fishing and hunting in this area was, and still is considered excellent. It has been the current residents summer retreat since 1991. A short walk down the road and across a deeded access brings you to the shore of Beaver Lake. More than likely it is here that you will spend much of your summer, enjoying every aspect of this wonderful Adirondack lake.
As full time 'residents' of Number Four, my wife and I enjoy crisp, clean air, vast green forests, numerous and unexpected wildlife sightings, spectacular starlit nights and water in every form you can imagine. If you like to; hike, canoe, kayak, swim, snowshoe, ice fish, hunt, trap, fish, ride atv's or snow-sleds, or just enjoy the solitude, sights, sounds and fragrance of the great outdoors, you'll find it here in Number Four. The Smith Road, a mile and a half to the west, is the local gateway to the 76,000 acre Independence River State Forest. The trail to Panther Pond, and the river itself begin at the parking lot at the end of the road. Several access trails to the Pepperbox Wilderness Wild Forest are found to the east along the Stillwater Road. At the roads end is Stillwater Reservoir, a popular destination for anglers and water sport enthusiasts. Both the Stillwater and Number Four roads connect to snowmobile corridor trail C8. A seemingly endless bucket list of recreational opportunities. Even those of us that have lived here for decades haven't done them all!
From Lowville travel east on the Number Four Road (also County Route 26) ~4 miles then turn left at the Corner Coral and continue on the Number Four Road ~14 miles to 8741 Buck Point Road on your left.
