About Joanna

Hi I'm Joanna,

I was born and raised in Long Island, New York. As a child growing up my parents would bring us to the Adirondacks every chance they had to enjoy 'the country'. Over the years my father developed land in the Jay area and built several homes. Heartsong was one of our family homes that was passed down to me.

Now we are the proud owners of Heartsong Retreat. With the help of my husband Peter, and our children Anthony and Maria, we have created the perfect vacation rental.

We invite you to stay at Heartsong and create your own wonderful memories in the Adirondacks.

Joanna purchased this house in 2011

Why Joanna chose Whiteface Mountain

Heartsong sits high on a hill and has views of the magnificent Jay range. With an east/west exposure, we enjoy beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Our location is perfect for the traveler who wants to enjoy the country and be minutes away from all the region has to offer.

What makes this house unique

Our home is Adirondack style with large, gourmet kitchens, hand crafted furniture and plush cozy decor. Most of the decorations are antique and have a story about them.

Guestbook comments from the owner


This home was wonderful and we enjoyed every inch of the spaciousness. The kitchens were great, the decor beautiful, and your hospitality was warm and helpful.

Can't wait to return,

Love... and thanks,

Linda and Dan

Great Experience Great location close to Lake Placid

  • 5 of 5

This Rental is gorgeous. We were a group of 12/3 families . We rented both houses and had 3 kitchens, with 5 t bedrooms total. The house is within 5-20 mins from everything. Whiteface mountain, Santa's Workshop, Swimming Gorges, Biking and hiking trails are all within 5 miles away. The town of Wilmington which is 3 miles away has 5 Star restaurants and a grocery store.

The houses were perfectly decorated and super clean with all the comforts of home. The Adirondack furniture and décor made us feel like we were in one of the finest lodges. Each house was very well situated to give everyone privacy. The largest kitchen had room to seat everyone for group dinners and entertainment.

We especially enjoyed the outdoor fire pits in the evening and the skiing at Whiteface Mountain during the day. We loved the quaint town of Lake Placid with all of the shops and restaurants.

The owner was just a phone call away if we needed anything and she was very helpful in suggesting places of interest.

We will definitely be back.

Surprise 80th Birthday Party @ HEARTSONG

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived until we left the owners were absolutely amazing. Heartsong is everything it is advertised to be. There were 14 of us to celebrate my husbands 80th birthday. Joanna (the owner) made the most delicious homemade birthday cake. She gave us fresh herbs from her garden. The younger crowd stayed up late playing music around the fire pit and the owners did not complain at all. I can't say enough good about this place and the owners. Every one of our group are still raving about the perfect vacation rental. I highly recommend Heartsong.
