Manager info

Year Purchased: 2002

About: My brother Jim and his son purchased this property because they loved the Adirondacks and everything it had to offer in all seasons. He loved having people come to the home to visit and stay. He decorated the house with an eye towards the Adirondack look and to make it homey and comfortable.

Why Old Forge, NY, USA:
They love snowmobiling in the winter. Relaxing, hiking and kayaking in the summer. Jim and Casey like the convenience of the grocery store, restaurants, ice cream and mini golf all within an easy walk.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Snowmobile directly from the property. Mini golf and ice cream next door. River practically in backyard. Sitting on the porch and relaxing. Having a fire in the backyard.
