Owner info

Year Purchased: 1977

About the owner: Hello, Let us begin with telling you a little bit about ourselves. John is Canadian, a naturalized citizen of the U.S., I was born and raised in MA. We ended up in NY when John took a logging job in Hunter. He started logging in Canada at 15 and has impressed many with his ability to land a tree within inches of it's mark. I'm retired from the Postal Service and was Postmaster of our small town Post Office for many years. John is also retired and became quite the carpenter after putting his logging days behind him. We now live between NY & MA.

Why the Owner Chose Lanesville, NY, USA:
We bought this house because of it's location and the beautiful mountains. It's close to Hunter, Tannersville, Phoenicia, Woodstock, so many activities close by but still country. We made friends, joined several clubs, had, and went, to many great parties. There's always something going on in the area.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home was small when we purchased it but once John took up carpentry it grew and grew. We love parties, so John built a large addition, cathedral ceiling, large windows, pool table, full bar, shuffleboard, such a fun room. Then he added a large living room, gas fireplace, sliding doors leading to the swimming pool, more windows, a lovely, relaxing room. Of course we needed another bedroom upstairs and he added a balcony off that. There's a cozy florida room off the living room. Decks around 3/4 of the house, two decks out back, a fenced yard, privacy, we love it. Instead of selling after retirement we decided to try a new venture with our home, vacation rental.
