Thanks Anthony!!! I hope more City people come up as well. It really is a GEM ad a beautiful place to wake up in the morning. I am grateful to be on the "Mountain". I'm sure that given time, people will want to do more cleaning up. After all, we are still slowly emerging from a financial crisis. People are getting back on thier feet. Time can fix anything. As you said, the potential is huge. Have you dealt with the Caesars? Anthony was incredibly nice and so fair. I will be calling on him again for sure. I think it's great to give work to the local people who really know the Mountain and it's quirks. Agin, he was so fair and so incredibly nice. Great people up there!!!

I am in the process of renting a wonderful place on Oakwood Trail. Will I be able to get up and down in the winter? I absolutely love the house and after seeing several, there are definitely certain areas that seem a bit nicer than others. Any insight would be appreciated.

MLP aka White Trash Mountain. Glad I got the hell out of there when I did and am never looking back. I can see where it was a nice area years ago. But now it's mostly rentals to section 8 housing. I bought my house up there hoping what I saw on the surface was legit. Boy was I wrong.
If you're seriously considering buying there, re-think it and find someplace else. You'll just be throwing your money down a hole.

I love MLP and I won 3 homes but John Ceaser is scum, he made his riches but stealing people's homes and is a slum lord , he is the one that rents to drug addicts and section 8. He is the reason for MLP failing apart. I have caught him stealing my wood, knocking down my fence and destroying my property. He comes with his construction machines and does what he wants. The town lets him get away with everything because he pays a lot of taxes. He plays the system very well. Don't give him a penny to work on anything you have. Just mention his name around town and watch the reaction if you don't believe me. I know John for 30 years and he is no where near a good man.

Bravo Kristine! After 2 years now our little cottage looking better and better, and we've met more of our neighbors, everybody is real nice. Honestly , our cottage is just a weekend place for us from the city, so it sits empty ALOT, and we never have any problems. Oh, and FYI a grand total of 3 sex offender live in Mountain Lodge (NYS offender registry) Over 33 live in midtown Manhatten, where the apartments are all over $1 million....Just sayin....

Hi Ken, Yeah go figure. I actually looked into that and the numbers are staggering. The neighbors are great and I'm sure things will get better. I enjoy it a great deal. The homes are a bargain right now because of the economy so I do hope that more of those great people are able to snap them up and begin sprucing it up. Whether it's for an investment or to live in. The place will become much nicer still given time. I just closed on my 2nd home and will make it look just as nice as my first. The local kids are nice too and always a blessing when it's time to rake the leaves. They have helped me and of course got paid but they are really good kids. I have yet to meet Anthony Caesar's father but have since heard more bad things about him. I guess after you hear it from more than one it does begin to ring true. All I know is Anthony was really nice and great to deal with, apparently nothing like his father. I'm happy and I really enjoy the Mountain and all it has to offer. After all it is what you make it.

My husband and I purchased a home in MT Lodge Park at 87 Brookside Trail...it was a weekend home and when we relocated our primary home we sold our weekend home in the 80s. We recently returned and found 87 Brookside Trail but no home...does anyone know what happened to the home...it was a GREAT 3 bedroom cottage.

Loved MLP as our summer home on Arcadia Trail in the early 60's. Wonderful people all over the mountain and great neighbors that flanked "Casa Siesta." Think our address may have been 37 Arcadia Trail with a nice brook running through the property. Great house, fun pool filled with mountain water by the general store. would love to get back there one day.

We lived at 87 Brookside Trail and visited a last summer and found that our home was gone! We were there from the late 70s to the mid 80s and left as the neighborhood changed. There were drugs by the mid 80s and I found it unsafe whereas prior to that we enjoyed the mountain and the isolation,

How much is the water fee per month for seasonal homes? Also, what are the "turn on" and "turn off" dates? It is supposedly from sometime in April to sometime in October but we cannot find solid information. Thanks!

Hi Jim. The "Seasonal" water is delivered May thru October. Last time I had to pay for it, the cost was around $800. Don't quote me on that. What I did hear is that it comes from a rusty reservoir that they have on top of the Mountain. My gues is that it is really collected rainwater. That would be all well and good with the exception of it coming out of the faucets and hoses BRIGHT rusty red. You can let it run all day long and it's still the same so it's not necessarily in the lines that run to the house. Calling the water company to complain does no good at all either. If you are looking to buy a place to live there, you shoud try and find a house with a well AND a filtration system. The well water there has TONS of minerals, perhaps iron so it has a very sulfer smell to it. With a good filtration system it's perfectly fine. I enjoy being there on weekends as I live in NYC. It's a great place that is undergoing a facelift here and there by new homeowners. Great fixer-uppers are avaiable too if you're handy. Over all it's very nice and getting nicer and cleaned up little by little. The Winters are rough though. I hope this helps!!! Enjoy!!!

Hi Kristine, I'm thinking about purchaching a cottage at MLP was wondering what trail your on? Just been doing online research for now, do certain areas have wells and others not? Thanks for all your imput, as I'm a single other of two.

Well / no well is more based on the proximity of the septic tanks from your/other houses. Our small 1 bedroom cottage sits on a really tiny piece of land, but is bordered on one side by a triple empty lot, and on the other by a home whose septic happens to be on the far side, away from us. So even though our land is tiny, we have a well, that has been there a long time.
The further uphill (past the fire dept) you tend to go, you seem to get into areas where things get quieter, however you can tell where there are pockets of caring people by better kept homes and lots.
Also, if you head far uphill, you m,ay want to consider an AWD or 4 WD car, it is tough up here in winter....LOTS o SNOW this year...pretty, but jeez!!
Keep fixing everybody! and tell your friends down in the big apple, where else can you get a forest shaded weekend or fuller time place for $40-$80K that just needs a little sweat and love to be chariming again!
