About the owner: Hi, my name is Ralph I am a graduate of the NYS Ranger School, I love the Adirondack Mountains, Forest, and waters.There is somthing magical about the woods, the aroma of pines, the fresh air, the sound of the wind through the forest, the sound of a mountain river. I own and operate Mountain River Properties, and build, sell or lease Cabins in the woods, and sell land also. Come on up and enjoy the pristine setting that the Independence River Cabin offers. I am also a singer/ songwriter/guitar player and have an album and 2 singles released (on I-tunes and other sites), mostly christian contemporary music. My favorite place to play guitar is with friends around a camp fire.

Why the Owner Chose Glenfield:
This property is so special to us, with the River, Forest and private site ,with tons of Hiking ,cross country ski trails and horsetrails almost bordering this property, and the 76,000 thousand acres of Independence River Wild Forest State Land makes this a special place.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Enjoy quiet time and have a relaxing cup of coffee on the rustic porch, overlooking the River, read a book and have friends stop by and enjoy the peace.Enjoy scenic walks along the River, and many trails in area.
