About Carolyn

My brother Jim and his son purchased this property because they loved the Adirondacks and everything it had to offer in all seasons. He loved having people come to the home to visit and stay. He decorated the house with an eye towards the Adirondack look and to make it homey and comfortable.

Carolyn purchased this house in 2002

Why Carolyn chose Old Forge

They love snowmobiling in the winter. Relaxing, hiking and kayaking in the summer. Jim and Casey like the convenience of the grocery store, restaurants, ice cream and mini golf all within an easy walk.

What makes this house unique

Snowmobile directly from the property. Mini golf and ice cream next door. River practically in backyard. Sitting on the porch and relaxing. Having a fire in the backyard.

Boy weekend at Jim's

Boy weekend at Jim's

My Uncles, cousins, brother and sons get together for one weekend a year to connect with each other. This year we stayed at Jim's Adirondack home in Old Forge. I have nothing but great things to say about this home. It was exceptionally clean and big enough for the 12 of us. The area was great for bike riding, canoeing, fishing or just walking around town. We booked the home again for next years get together.

It was a beautiful house with all the amenities. Even had dog lines, leashes, dishes, picnic chairs and so much more. I would go there again for sure. Centrally located to get to many things.

Perfect for families

  • 5 of 5
This place was perfect. Within walking distance to everything and also a very comfortable house to just hang out in on a rainy day. My kids were already asking if we could stay in the same house next time. I would highly recommend Jim's Adirondack home to anyone looking to experience Old Forge.

Weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5
Our trip was absolutely perfect. We were able to easily explore old forge as we could walk to all shops and restaurants. We had a lovely breakfast at Keyes and shopped the Farmers Market. We loved being able to cook and relax in our beautiful little house. Coffee on the front porch was lovely. We were able to hike two mountains with our dog (bald and black bear) both fun hikes and an easy drive. The house is so pretty and comfortable. We cannot wait to go back!!

vaca with grandkids

Had a great stay at the house. Beds are comfy as is the living room and dining room. There is plenty of room for three kids and two adults. Great to be able to do laundy with kids and pack less! Having the grocery store across the street is great, buy as you go and don't overspend. The water park is great, kids loved it and we had a 4 yr old and 2 16 yr olds. Do the Loomis Train ride if you can, it's FUN!
Agent was wonderful to work with, very helpful and nice. Oh, and you can walk to about everything in town too!
