North Fork Lodge, a 7,150-acre hunting retreat in Pennsylvania, is the only place in the Northeast where one can hunt white elk. Otherwise a trip out west to hunt this prized game could cost anywhere from $1,000 up to $15,000 per day. The elk’s snow-white coloring is what makes them highly coveted and extremely rare.
Currently owned by Kip Fulks, a co-founder of sportswear maker Under Armour, North Fork Lodge has at least a 90-year history as a gathering place for generations of nature lovers and hunters. Between all the buildings, the Lodge sleeps 32 family and friends who can enjoy both summer and winter sports along with the much anticipated hunting season. Guests will enjoy a ski-and-sledding hill, fishing and boating, hiking, hunting, trap and skeet shooting. Much of the land is planted in valuable hardwoods such as black cherry, maple, oak, and ash trees that are on a 15-to-20-year maturation cycle, making it a good timber investment property. Fire access roads weave throughout, giving easy access to all the acreage for hiking, camping and horseback riding deep into unspoiled land that is adjacent to the Allegheny National Forest. Developed in 1920, the stone main lodge has a commercial kitchen, meeting room, and dining room along with a massive stone fireplace, lots of wood, beamed ceilings and all the ambiance needed to be warm and cozy when the snow flies.
Historic North Fork Lodge encompassing over 7,000 acres in central Pennsylvania near St. Mary's is for sale asking $13.6 million.
