Year Purchased: 1988
About the owner: I grew up and currently still live in Eastern Connecticut. I adore the Adirondacks and have been extremely fortunate to acquire this beautiful property from my very generous parents. They fell in love with the region decades ago and instilled that love and respect in me. I in turn have shared this wonderful property with my own son and many friends and family members. I hope through these vacation rentals to share it with many more and provide others the opportunity to fall in love as I did. Because I am still employed full time, I am unable to visit as often as I'd like. By offering it for rent, I hope others can enjoy it as I and my family have and continue to create the memories that last a lifetime.
Why the Owner Chose Malone, NY, USA:
The property was purchased by my folks in 1988 as a summer retreat. At the time, it had a little 2 room hunter's cabin on it. The cabin remained until 15 years ago when it was replaced with the main house that exists today. The cottage was built by my Dad while the little cabin was still in existence. The property has been a huge part of my family for the better part of my adulthood and for my son'e entire life. He spent most summers with his grandparents there - swimming, fishing, and working side by side with his Pop-Pop. It is my desire to keep the property in the family and one day pass it on to my son. Until that time, my occasional visits still serve to renew and refresh me. There's nothing like a solitary paddle from pond to flow, surrounded by nothing but peaceful solitude and the beauty of the Adirondack wild.
