This solid Beaver Mountain Builders log home exhibits the superior quality associated with these homes, including beautiful hardwood floors, gorgeous exposed beams, attractive stone work and wood framed Andersen windows. Top-quality appliances, laundry, central vacuum (3 flrs), and a combination of baseboard and radiant heating systems throughout the home complete the package. 25-foot cathedral ceilings with a huge wall of glass overlooking the valley from Binghamton to Oneonta, provide views literally for miles. A large deck with access from the backyard and living room, make valley viewing a joy. Each day the scene is different, but always beautiful. The elegantly designed kitchen and dining area offers a well-laid-out traffic pattern, ideal for groups, but intimate enough to feel family oriented. The main house's open floor plan allows a central wood-burning (Vermont Castings) stove to keep things toasty in the cold. Superior insulation (12+ inches) keeps it warm in winter and cool in summer. The property operated as the destination B&B Keepers of the Flag'' for years. Guests came from around the world to stay at the site of the 30' x 60' American flag waving majestically atop its 130-ft pole on a mountain outside Sidney, NY. The owners hosted large reunions, and major celebrations of civic pride and military honor. With 4 guest rooms, several with their own sinks, and 2 wings with separate access to the home, guesting is easy and secure. The main master bedroom suite is removed from the guest areas, making living private and safe for the owners and guests. The suite has its own private deck, ensuite bath, large cedar closet and 2 sitting areas. The 1st-floor guest wing has 2 bedrooms and a private kitchenette. The downstairs guest area has a large activity room (now housing an official-size ping pong table), and secure access to the utilities. Additionally, the downstairs has what amounts to a separate 2-bedroom apartment with full bath, small kitchenette and large great-room. Sliding doors open onto a large patio with views of the valley, and even a driveway for guests to park their cars. You can effectively have 2 separate groups or families stay here and never bump into one another! The outbuildings include a 4+ car heated Morton Building garage with full bath and kitchen (the owners lived here while the main house was being built) and a 6-bay 3-sided shed, great for toys and tools, or hosting sheltered large gatherings. With over 49 acres of woods, grass and hills, the property is loaded with wildlife. Just minutes from the Sidney airport and I-88, you won't find a more perfectly located luxury living space. Make this your own private family retreat, or extend the history of the B&B and share in the glory and write your own chapter of the great American flag guest house.
