About the Property
3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom With River Views
Located in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains in Croghan NY this Adirondack Vacation Rental destination is sure to please anyone!
The historic school house offers 3 relaxing bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, a full kitchen, reading alcove, wood-stove, pillow-top beds and many guest amenities. With cherry hard-wood finishes and a spiral stair case highlighting the cathedral-ceilinged living room, this is not your average vacation cottage.
Care was taken to preserve the history of this building which at one time served as a church and later as a schoolhouse for Belfort. With a nod toward the history of the building, decorative glass windows were selected by the architect and the original flooring was restored to a new shine. In addition modern comforts like radiant in-floor heating and solar thermal domestic hot-water were implemented to meld the old and new in a complimentary way.
Just 1.5 hours north of Utica and 2 hours from Syracuse the Old Belfort Schoolhouse offers a quiet respite from the modern world. For those seeking a get-away that is something different than the crowds of Old Forge, this accessible Adirondack vacation rental offers wonderful access to the best of the Adirondacks with the comforts of a beautiful home to stay in.

Why the Owner Chose Croghan, NY, USA:
This property is historically significant as it served as both a Church and later as a Schoolhouse in Belfort. During the renovations we focused on preserving the architecturally significant elements using decorative glass windows and preserving the pulpit area while adding in energy efficient modern features like radiant in-floor and solar-thermal heating.
