Escape from NYC

Recalling the rustic elegance of the Adirondack Great Camps, The Chapin Estate is a private, four-season, gated residential preserve that has become one of the most sought-after retreats from the hustle and bustle of city life.

On approximately 2,500 acres, The Chapin Estate is nestled amidst the tranquil beauty of a pair of freshwater lakes, surrounded by pristine forest lands, and adjoining 14,000 more acres owned by New York State and kept as a “forever wild” expanse.
Those who acquire a Chapin home, on a minimum lot size of five acres, will experience the antithesis of urban: an unspoiled landscape of trees, coves, cliffs and trails—all bathed in a kind of otherworldly natural light of which the Catskills are famous.

Nature Above All

Chester Chapin’s love of nature mirrored that of none other than Teddy Roosevelt who, more than anyone else, awakened America to the need for conservation of its natural resources.

Ninety minutes away

Chapin is far from the relentless pursuit, yet surprisingly easy to reach. Ninety scenic minutes by car from midtown Manhattan brings you right to the private gates.
