We are interesting in buying acreage in the Adirondacks. The property has over 1600 ft of river frontage on one side and creek frontage on another side. (27 acres total) What would you say are the advantages/disadvantage to buying acreage with wetlands? We would have to build 100 ft from any wetland area. The property has two elevated building sites and plenty of wooded areas. We had some family check the place out for us but they are city folk. They told us the land was "wet". (of course it was, it rained for two weeks) and they complained about brambles. They are used to walking on concrete. Anyway, we would like the opinions of more seasoned homesteaders. Thanks in advanced. .
