About Paul Choma

We are Paul and Jill Choma. We are small business owners who have built a beautiful log home to share with people who love the outdoors but who love the creature comforts of home.

Paul & Jill along with their son Nicholas and daughter Christie welcome you to share in this beautiful and peaceful Adirondack experience.

Paul Choma purchased this house in 2005

Why Paul Choma chose New York

Moon Over Moose is a luxurious custom built log home, privately located on the meandering Moose River.

The view of the Moose River will entice you to explore the great outdoors. Head on down to the dock to launch the canoe or rowboat. The river is home to otters, loons, beavers, herons and moose. If you are lucky you may see them during your stay! Hiking trails are easily accessible and within walking distance of the house. The local bike trail is just steps away and will lead you on a scenic trip into town and beyond!

The town of Old Forge features a historic movie theater, a community beach and playground, access to the Fulton Chain of Lakes and NYs largest water theme park. Dining and shopping can keep you busy all day. Don't forget to look into whitewater rafting and kayaking while visiting the Adirondack Mountains. You will see some of the most spectacular scenery our country has to offer.

The Central Adirondack Region offers much for the vacationer during all seasons. In the summer all kinds of activities abound including; boating, golf, water skiing, fishing, canoeing, hiking, swimming and mountain biking.

Spring and Fall are very special times in the Adirondacks. With the snow gone and the trees blooming, you can interact with the environment on a calmer level – appreciating the forest for the trees, following the cool mountain streams, and watching for wildlife. It is a great time to hike, golf, canoe, kayak and bike. There are miles of marked hiking trails throughout the majestic woodlands of the Adirondack Mountains!

What makes this house unique

Hand crafted in Quebec, each of the logs was sculpted by hand, not milled in a factory. This home was lovingly designed over a 3 year span involving 2 architects and the owners. Take some time to appreciate the great use of natural light.

​Covered porch with barbeque grills, gas burning fireplace, hardwood floors, wifi internet, master bedroom suite with jetted soaking tub and pool table game room are just a few of the wonderful features that Moon Over Moose offers to it's guests.

You’ll be sure to enjoy many adventures each time you visit and keep memories for a lifetime!​​​

Amazing Family vacation

We had the very best time in this gorgeous and comfortable home. The wildlife filled a couple of bucket lists for our family. Yogi showed up several times for some photo ops. Paul and Jill it shows you put a lot of thought into building and design of this incredible home. We are looking forward to next year and enjoying all the comforts of a beautiful home with a scenic view...

The most Tranquil, magnificent houe!!

  • 5 of 5

Moon over moose is by far my favorite place for relaxation and family time!. My family visited from Ireland this summer (2016), so I decided to rent this wonderful home as I had been there previously!.my family were ecstatic and had the BEST vacation, we spent time playing chess, cards watching movies, rowing Paul's row boat/canoe out onto moose river, we cooked outside everyday, told stories or listened to old Irish traditional music by night. We had visitors daily between numerous families of ducks, to deer to foxes, squirrels (we saw a black squirrel and found out that they come from the northeastern grey squirrel) and chipmunks!, over all this home is magnificent and has such beauty, even the fragrance as you walk in the door from the wood is such a joy. We will definitely be back to this wonderful abode!

Thank You

Paul and Family for allowing us this experience as a family also!

More than expected

  • 5 of 5

My extended family and I just returned from our 1st visit. All I can say is that the photo's (although beautiful) does not do it justice! We we're all blown away with the beauty of the home. Well taken care of. The location is perfect and tranquil. The home was again well taken care of and with the cleaning supply well stocked it was easy to maintain. Very pleased and plan to book again! Well worth it!

Excellent Choice

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd vacation trip to Moon Over Moose. We are already planning to return. The house is beautiful, comfortable, clean and well supplied. The location is convenient and the setting is gorgeous and peaceful. The view of the Moose River is awesome. The layout of the house makes it easy to dine and gather for games or spread out if you want individual time to read, surf the internet or watch TV. The owners take excellent care of the property as well as their guests.
