Savannah Dhu in Wayne County listed for sale at $65M

If you’re looking for a nice getaway and have a little extra money in the bank, there’s a place in rural Wayne County that may be just right for you.

Savannah Dhu, a conference center, hunting lodge and nature preserve covering 3,929 acres, is for sale for $65 million.

The compound is owned by mall developer Robert Congel and family. The property is listed on Select Sotheby’s International Realty, represented by listing agent Lou Izzo.

Buck Lainhart, co-owner of Kee Kee Run Cafe in Clyde, along with his wife, Mary, knows a little bit about the place. He helped Congel, founder of Pyramid Companies, the developer of Syracuse mega-mall Destiny USA, build the place some three decades ago.

“I was part of it right from the ground up,” Lainhart said. “We kept buying land and expanding.”

Lainhart also did work for Congel at Destiny.

He met wife Mary, who also worked at Savannah Dhu at the time.
