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!​​​

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

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!

Stunning cabin!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the pleasure of staying at Moon over Moose for a few days. Absolutely beautiful cabin with all the amenities of home. From the moment we pulled into the driveway you could see that this wasn't your ordinary run of the mill ADK cabin. The wood work was amazing, the windows in the family room allowed us to take in the views in the mornings while the basement provided us and the kids a place to play. PLENTY of space for the family. Being on the river was great! We took the canoe out on several occasions and as the evenings approached, the covered patio and fire pit area were a nice way to end our days.

We are finicky renters, so we usually do a walk through when we arrive and we were impressed with the cleanliness of the cabin. It was also great working with Paul. We had questions prior to arriving and he was very prompt on answering emails, text and calls. He also checked in with while we were there to make sure everything was as expected.

All in all, this is the best cabin we have stayed at in the Adirondacks! Beautiful cabin, great to be on the river and the proximity to Old Forge is so convenient. Pretty sure we have found our home away from home when we visit the ADK's!

Magnificent house, tons of space

  • 5 of 5

This house was everything that we could have wished for a vacation rental in the Adirondack area. This was by far the nicest place in the whole neighborhood. Plenty of space inside and out, that you are not stepping on each others toes. The kitchen was big enough for us to have everyone hanging out there.

The owners are great and very easy to work with. You can see that they have put a ton of time, energy and money into this house to make it really feel like a home. Our group would love to do this trip again next year.

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...
