Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We retired from our jobs in the medical profession in 2008 to move to the Adirondack Mountains where we took a retirement job as live in inn keepers at a historic Great Camp. We found that we loved the Adirondacks and purchased a home and retired from our retirement job.

Why the Owner Chose Bloomingdale, NY, USA:
Having traveled to the Adirondacks many times over the past 20 years we came to appreciate and enjoy the Mountain lifestyle. We fell in love with this property from the moment we first saw it. The view is stunning and we feel so fortunate to be able to live in these beautiful mountains.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The Adirondack style of our home and it's location on a beautiful lake with gorgeous scenery, being surrounded by forever wild forest and an abundance of wildlife as well as great access to canoeing, hiking, fishing and winter sports all contributed to our love of this property.
