About the House

100_1395

We purchased this fabulous home in 2002 and soon thereafter began a much-needed rehabilitation from many prior owners’ alterations to this old working farmhouse. After years of our gradual work we’ve created what we feel is a beautiful open, airy, and bright living space allowing more of the outside in, and preserving a feel of refined country living. We have used reclaimed and natural elements to pay homage to the many area resources that make this region unique.

Our grassed and partially wooded 35-acre property is situated on, and divided by East Stony Creek in the Southern Adirondack Park. We border an Adirondack Wilderness area, which is designated as “Forever Wild”. This is pristine forest. We have creek access, for wading, swimming, fishing, or kayaking, two fire pits, outdoor living furniture, horseshoe pits, and plenty of yard games space. There is a barn on this property that is available for event rental. We are located on CR7, a one way in, one way out valley road, which loosely follows East Stony Creek towards its origination point. The creek is a tributary to the Great Sacandaga Lake, and both are large recreational attractions for boating, fishing, swimming, paddle boarding, etc. depending on the season. Two miles past our home is a trailhead to various hikes, runs or bike rides, and a popular waterfall. Numerous other trailheads and recreational opportunities are in the immediate area.

This stay is great for small mixed groups and families to get away from the stresses of the world and to relax. We have wireless internet access though we do not have a television, allowing you to get only the information that you desire. We have books for you to read and enjoy for your stay but ask that you please leave them when you depart. There are board games, card games, poker chips, drawing boards, and a baby grand piano. We have the Adirondack Park at our doorstep.

There is a locally owned and operated greenhouse a short distance down our road that offers seasonal produce. During the summer months you will find various farm to table markets in the area. This region is not only the jumping on point to the Adirondack Wilderness, it is interlaced with artisans, craftsmen, builders, and antique collectors as well as historic interests. Assortments of dining and entertainment options are regionally accessible.

We spend our time here enjoying the surrounding Wilderness, biking, hiking, boating, fishing, swimming, and entertaining friends and family. This is a great place for making music, art, and food and reconnecting. We welcome writers, musicians, performers, artists, artisans, recreationalists and adventurers of all kinds that will respect this space and leave no trace.
