NEW YORK, Aug. 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- A historic Great Camp located in the heart of the picturesque Adirondack Mountains will sell at auction to the highest bidder on September 9th, Concierge Auctions has announced. Originally scheduled for August 5th, the new date will allow the currently-registered bidders additional time to evaluate the potential purchase and will also enable new prospective bidders to become involved. Originally listed for $6,495,000, the sale of Camp Kwenogamac will take place in cooperation with Select Sotheby's International Realty.

Great Camp Kwenogamac is a historic woodland retreat in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains in New York State and offers the rarest of experiences: communion with nature in a secluded, utterly private traditional Adirondack estate that provides comfort, amenities and a true playground for outdoor and nature enthusiasts. Nestled behind a gate on a private road among a 42-acre matured forest, the property is a fully-sustainable showpiece in any season and features unrivaled panoramic mountain views in three directions, more than 1,200 feet of Long Lake frontage with a natural sand beach, Adirondack architecture and history all perfectly blended with the finest of modern amenities and green innovation. Thirteen completely self-sufficient structures enhance the property, including a significant c.1903 three-story, seven-bedroom summer lodge, original kitchen building, a guesthouse and a boathouse -- each exquisite in both form and function while together offering nearly 13,000 square feet of living space.

The auction of Camp Kwenogamac will be held live, on-site, on September 9th. Attendance will be limited to registered bidders and their representatives. Bidders may participate in person or by proxy via telephone or Internet. The property is available for preview daily by appointment. For more information call 866-822-0865 or visit
