    The Story. The Story.  Putting the Pieces Together.
    1967. No sooner had I closed the deal with Jim Melvin's on his 90 acres, Dan let me know the adjoining 75-acre Prime lot was up for sale as well. And next year the big 300-acre Hurley lot across the road at $65 per. Then the 120-acre Smith woodlot and sugarbush right by camp. Dan researched the ownership of the 18-acre frontage lot (the Boughton field) and found the old man's son in Georgia. The last piece was the seven acre Beauregard camp (the old Perkins Farm) that had been cut out of the Smith lot years ago before Smith bought it. The people had a mobile home on it--an eyesore. The guy held out and we ended up paying $10,000 for. But what a relief!
    By 1970, with Dan's help, I had put together six parcels of land--a 700-acre private getaway. In those days we called it just "camp."
    When we decided to start a vacation rental business, first tentatively in 1988 with just a few rentals from a one-time New York Times ad, and then later in 1997 with a one-page website, we had to find a name. "Fourpeaks" first came to mind--and it stuck.

A fire on Basset Mountain in the early 60's left a network of fire roads as well. Salvage harvesting after the great Ice Storm in January '98 improved access to the higher elevations. Fourpeaks 4 mountains (Bassett, Wainwright, Rattlesnake and Ebenezer) are friendly 2,000-foot peaks which can provide hours and days of pleasant discovery for both the seasoned hiker and everyday walker--afoot, or on snowshoes or skis! Trails lead to summits and ridges with river, valley and mountain views, and to beauty spots worth visiting. For a private experience you don't have to drive to--away from the crowds on overused public trails.
