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.

Why Paul Choma chose Thendara

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!​​​

A Perfect Getaway in a Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family recently stayed at Moon Over Moose for a long weekend and thoroughly enjoyed the home, its amenities, and the location. Communication with Paul was quick and easy – he was very attentive to emails, even while traveling himself.

The home was in great shape, well-maintained, and very comfortable for our 6 guests – the layout lending itself well to an even larger group who could be spread out doing their own thing. The neighborhood is very quiet and the location along the river is beautiful. With an easy walk nearby, you can link up with the TOBIE trail, crossing over the Moose River, and then on toward town.

Because we visited somewhat out of season our experiences in the area may differ from others, but the home & location were top notch and we were able to enjoy just the kind of relaxing trip together that we were looking for.

Thanks!

Outstanding Property with a Gracious Owner

  • 5 of 5

The house is immaculate, supplied as well as my own home and is located on a pretty river inlet very close to Old Forge. Paul, the owner, takes the time to tell you noteworthy local restaurants and activities and even welcomes you with a phone call when you arrive to make sure all is well. This is an A+++ property and experience.

Clean, welcoming, and beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

The house was close to town and immaculate. Being right on the water was a lot of fun, too. We loved seeing deer, squirrels, and ducks on the property every day. Exactly what you would want a gorgeous Adirondacks experience to be!!!

Magnificent vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for the ultimate vacation rental in the Old Forge area - this is it. As beautiful as the home looks in the photos - they don't capture how magnificent it really is! It has everything needed for a fun and relaxing family vacation- from spacious beautifully decorated rooms and a gorgeous kitchen to - a game room, fire pit, scenic views from each window, speakers throughout home and comfy beds! The owners are very kind and communicative. Phenomenal vacation because of the home! Thanks for opening it up for others to experience!
