About Ruth or Fred Allen (tex Ruth @732 266 5236) E-MAILS RETURNS ARE NOT GOING THR

I was able to get this from my family. Our family spend many vacations there, Our friends all love it and go there when they can.

Ruth or Fred Allen (tex Ruth @732 266 5236) E-MAILS RETURNS ARE NOT GOING THR purchased this cottage in 1993

Why Ruth or Fred Allen (tex Ruth @732 266 5236) E-MAILS RETURNS ARE NOT GOING THR chose Gore Mountain

It has a peace about it. My grandmother and my mom went there to school. I started first grade there --then the oneroom school house was closed. We then had to go to JCS in North Creek.

What makes this cottage unique

Sitting on the front deck watching the leaves fall or looking out the back gliders watching the snow pile up.

Excellent weekend away.

  • 5 of 5

Our 2nd year renting here. We just love it. Its an old converted school house that has a school house theme. We enjoyed our stay both times. It has everything we needed. We actually stayed in and cooked one night. The wood stove was a great joy to take the chill off. We stayed with a small group, but plan on getting in a nice romantic weekend with the wife in the near future. Owner are dynamite to deal with.

Very cute little place with everything I needed

  • 4 of 5

Overall, the place was great. Provided everything I needed. It had a nice fireplace that we literally spent the weekend watching the logs flame up and crackle away. We had some snow come down saturday night, and by the time we left on sunday morning, a plow had come through and cleaned up the driveway for us (my little car probably wouldn't have made it if he hadn't).

The only negatives abut the place is that the bedroom is pretty small, but after a day of hard riding on Gore Mountain, I hardly noticed on saturday night. Also, the site says it's 5 miles away from gore...that may be that actual distance on a map, but the drive itself is more like 8 or so miles, and took about 15 minutes....Still, all in all, the place is great, it had all of the amenities I needed, and for the value you just can't beat it. Will definitely come back...hopefully later this season.

Thanks Fred.
