About Claire

Retired couple from Connecticut. We love Old Forge and have been coming here for 20 years. It is our second home and we look forward to sharing our Adirondack experience with you and your family!

Claire purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Claire chose Old Forge

Best possible location, one block walk to town, and directly on the Moose River with serene river views and private dock for Kayaking or canoeing, easy river access!

What makes this cabin unique

Have the feeling of being in a remote area with all of nature around you but you are still within walking distance of all the conviences of town.

Extend the bathroom 12" and it's a 5 Star!!

  • 4 of 5

We loved the cabin - but the down side was the bathroom. I am 6' tall and it was a challenge.

Other than that we loved the location in town!

Perfect Cabin for a Long Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect getaway cabin for 2 for an extended weekend. Pleasing rustic interior, quiet neighborhood, right on Moose River. 10 minute walk to main part of town. When we arrived, a deer walked right by us with no fear; AWESOME! Cabin had everything we needed & more. Spotless! Thermostatic gas stove was more than enough heat & provided cozy, country atmosphere. Highly recommend this property to friends & relatives. Owner of the cabin was very accommodating & everything was exactly as advertised. Can't say enough about the

overall enjoyable weekend my wife & I just completed in Old Forge. Would do it again & stay at same cabin.

Quaint little cabin on the Moose!

  • 4 of 5

Nice, cozy cabin for 2 on the Moose River. Property was as advertised - clean and well-appointed. Within easy walk of Old Forge town center. Caught a 3-foot Northern Pike off the dock within 15 minutes of arrival. We would rent this property again without hesitation.

Beautiful and quiet property

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed in the cabin for a weekend and it was the perfect getaway. Being right on the river made it so relaxing to sit outside by the firepit or on the dock. We brought kayaks and took a nice trip up the river. It is also closely located to town near all the restaurants and shops. The space was perfect for 2 people and we even cooked dinner for ourselves one night. It was supplied with everything we needed. We also enjoyed eating dinner out on the back covered porch during a storm. I would highly recommend this cabin for anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing time! We will definitely be back!
