Starting out as a small barn, this structure evolved into an adorable cottage just steps away from an amazing vegetable garden. The kitchen has a bank of windows soaking in the south facing views of Gore Mountain, a treasured collection of copper pots and pans and an antique milkshake machine. There are reused antique beams, leaded glass reproduction windows from a wrecking yard, a rebuilt Vermont Castings woodstove, art work and Asian artifacts shipped to us when my parents recently downsized. Somehow, it all came together -- the Farmstand seems to have an instantaneous lore, an essential characteristic of camp life. Upstairs is a loft bedroom with queen bed; downstairs is a twin bed off an alcove; and a sofa to snooze on.
We have a lively happy lab dog that greets people and free-ranging old pony. Enjoy watching our chickens and ducks as they wander the property, leaving fresh eggs for your enjoyment in the coop. Summers are wonderful with cool mountain breezes, nearby lakes and the Hudson River to swim, bathe or fish in. Fall is glorious with all the trees turning color. Winter is spectacular with wild winds, deep snow and a cozy woodstove (yes, a regular furnace as well!) to snuggle by.
Dogs are welcome! but they must stay on leash to project our chickens and ducks.
Surrounded by meadows and gardens, located on family compound of historic cottages, the cottage offers privacy, comfort, warmth and country décor. Newly renovated! Private, unique and comfortable, close to the Hudson River and pristine nearby 13th Lake as well as North Creek for dining and shopping. The cottage is graced with Asian artwork, warm woodworking touches and beautiful decorations.
If you need a babysitter or someone to take care of your dog while you're rafting or out to dinner, we have teenagers at your disposal.
In summer, we also have a studio over our barn where your children can to do some arts and crafts, play a board game, do some puzzles or watch a movie. Our over-the-barn-studio also offers a ballet bar and dance, pilates and yoga CD's. How about learning how to mat and frame a picture? Bring some photos or art work and your hostess Leslie will mat and frame them up with you; you'll take something pretty home as well as learning a new skill... Learn some country skills – join us for a canning workshop! Pick your own berries or tomatoes and then learn how to can them; take home something wonderful to eat this winter while remembering your summer and fall vacation in the Adirondacks!
This private cottage is located on 40 acres of gorgeous land. It is a family compound with other cottages located about 300 feet apart. Owner lives on site and is available for whatever you need. Otherwise, enjoy a private getaway!
North River is such a beautiful, wonderful place! Picturesque, romantic, Adirondacks at its best ... People are always amazed at how beautiful our family property is ... I am very blessed to own this place, and enjoy sharing it with others.
PS We have just added some "glamping" tents if you'd prefer a more outdoor experience! Beautiful canvas tent on a deck fully furnished with lovely bed, lights, your own grill and use of the nearby bathroom and kitchen in our renovated barn.

The Adirondacks are one of the most beautiful places in the world!
Year Purchased: 1910
About the owner: The property has been in my family since 1910 when my great-grandparents used to make the long trip up from New York City every summer to the Adirondacks where they had a small authentic “camp”. Life was leisurely and visitors were treasured … which is just like our lifestyle today!
I moved to the “camps” several years ago fulltime and returned to my roots as a carpenter, restoring the original camp and building a guest cottage, a barn and a chicken coop. We now rent out the “camp” which still retains many original details and decorations from 1910 as well as our new guest house. Beyond bringing in much needed revenue today, the rental income is a means for my daughters, and future generations, to pay the taxes and upkeep so that the camps continue to stay in the family.
Why the Owner Chose North River: The Adirondack Mountains are truly beautiful and special ...
