Property description

In the hills of Thurman, 20 minutes from Lake George and Gore Mountain this is a quaint newly renovated cottage. Nestled against a mountain side and overlooking a rustic poultry farm, Whitefield's Farm Cottage is a great place to bring children and get in touch with where your food comes from. Imagine waking in the morning to farm fresh eggs, farm raised sausage and bacon or fresh picked veggies. Mountain Road is quiet, yet we are only 15 minutes from Warrensburg, where there are great restaurants and stores. Head up Mountain Road and you are in North Creek, where the White Water Rafting is great and their downtown also has wonderful shops and dining options!
The cottage has 3 bedrooms: 1 down (queen), two up (queen in master and 2 full in dormer room), one full bath with claw foot tub and separate shower and a 1/2 bath in the master bedroom, full eat in kitchen, plus an all season porch with large windows overlooking our beautiful stone barn. There is a propane woodstove for cooler Adirondack evenings and electric heat for kitchen and downstairs bath. There is a small deck off the kitchen with a propane grill. There is no land line but most can get cell service here. There are two TV's (1 in living room and a small one in the dormer room) Dish network package is available for the TV in the living room and a DVD player in the upstairs dormer room. We will also provide board and card games for the more restful evenings. The best thing to do, however, would be to turn off and get out, there are several trails available right near the house for long walks and lots of nearby lakes and rivers for kayak and canoes. The Six Flags amusement park is only 30 min away. Saratoga Springs with horse racing, music and Saratoga Performing Arts center is only a short 45-50 min drive on the Northway. Linens for beds and bath will be provided, you will need to bring your own beach towels.
Other amenities,
all new mattresses and box springs
coffee maker, toaster and microwave ovens, air conditioners (both upstairs.)
Dogs will be considered on an individual basis (extra fee)
The Cottage is also for sale. Contact me through this site if interested.

Owner info

About the owner: Don and I are farmers, (well he's a farmer and I'm a nurse) but farming takes two full time people. We moved out of 110 a few years ago, to live in the farmhouse across the road. We have lived in this area for over 30 years. I was a country girl from the start raised in Hadley NY just down the road. Don was born and raised in Paramus NJ, but moved to the country as soon as he could. We both enjoy outdoors stuff, gardening, hunting, fishing camping. By the way, the little person is my granddaughter Katie. She's now 8 and loves coming to Farmer Grandma's and Pappy's

Why the Owner Chose Athol, NY, USA:
We owned this house for over 30 years and it has seen a lot of love. Now it's time for some new memories to be made. Don and I hope that the 'farm cottage' becomes a special place for you too.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The farm cottage was actually part of a piece of property that used to be a dude ranch in the 1950's. There are some interesting articles framed in our farm store to explain some of the history of what used to be The Sun Canyon Dude Ranch. As far as unique opportunity, how about getting real farm fresh eggs, cage free chickens and all natural veggies at your doorstep. Bring your children down to see the chicks, geese, and turkeys, reconnect to where your food comes from. We are all natural and our poultry is cage free. The cottage gets it's water from a deep mountain spring fed well. It is always crystal clear and cold. You can drink the water here.
