                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About the owner: I reside in Western Suffolk Long Island, NY. I work for North Shore University Hospital. Enjoy traveling, snowmobiling, skiing, and sailing to name a few. Old Forge is my favorite destination of all time. I am glad to be able to share my home with many great family's who enjoy all the Adirondacks have to offer... no matter what season.

                      Why the Owner Chose Old Forge:
                      The people are great, the local food is excellent, and the views in every season are quite spectacular. Old Forge is a truly affordable vacation spot. There is so much to do in the area its impossible to bore yourself. We built the house from 2004-2005. We chose the neighborhood cause it was quiet, close to town, and close to the lake. Old Forge has something for everyone. I am big into snowmobiling and we have direct trail access to hundreds of miles of beautiful Adirondack Seclusion.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
                      I like that the house was designed the way we wanted it. Every room in the house carries its own theme, and knowing we designed the layout gives us peace of mind. We enjoy the snowfall in the winter, the great foliage in the fall, Whitewater rafting in the spring, and summers bring some of the best day and night weather in all of New York.
