Owner info

About the owner: This house was built by my grandparents in the 60's to retire in the peace and serenity of the Adirondacks. My grandfather loved to fish and hunt. My grandmother loved how the mountains looked different every time she looked out the window. The house was passed down to my parents and now to me. I named the 2 maple trees out front Grandma and Grandpa! We are dedicated to making this house a comfortable and affordable gettaway.

Why the Owner Chose Jay:
We have lots of windows to enjoy the 180 degree views of the mountains, including Jay Mountain wilderness and Whiteface Mountain. There are no visible neighbors. Quiet gettaway. Enjoy the 4 large Maple trees in the fall. Enjoy the trails all year around. Clean and well-maintained home. Rustic decor.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Seclusion!
