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

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.

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.

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

  • 5 of 5
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!

We had a great time here. The house was very clean and provided everything you would need. It's in a great location right across from the grocery store. It's a short walk into town.

HEIDI

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay in your charming home. My daughter loved seeing deer in the yard every morning. Having our pets with us made our stay so much more enjoyable. We have been coming to Old Forge for many years now and absolutely love the town. The golf course next door was a hit with the kids. I would love to come again and stay in your beautiful home. Thank you for shaing it with us and for allowing our furry family members to have a vacation as well.

Owner's Response: We love hearing from our guests and sometimes we forget to thank them for taking care of Jim's Adirondack home so well. I would like to say to all our guests thank you very much for helping to make it so easy for us when you leave. It is so wonderful when guests leave the property not only as they found it, but make it better. So not only to Heidi and her family thank you for leaving the house sparkling but to all our guests who have made it possible for guests to bring their "furry friends"by keeping the house clean.

CHARMING HOME, CHARMING TOWN

  • 5 of 5
Our stay in Old Forge, although cut short due to illness, was lovely. The home is well equipped, with everything we could have possibly needed. Beds were comfy too. There was plenty of space for everyone in our family (2 adults, 15 year old, 11 year old, 4 year old and a 2 year old). We enjoyed a rousing game of Old Forgeopoly (a monopoly like game that we found onsite). The deer coming right up to our kids was a highlight as was the waterpark, the lake, the "hardware" store and the ice-cream right next door. We had a fantastic meal at Frankies, one tiny town over. The street noise was sometimes a bit loud but the fans, provided in the home, muffled the sound at night. All in all a wonderful time was had by all, we only wish we could have stayed for the entire time we intended.

Owner's Response: We are sad that due to illness our guests had to leave. However, we are happy that your family was able to enjoy your limited stay.

My brother Jim had stocked lots of interesting games for families to enjoy. Our grandson loves a circuit building toy that is there and we try some different configurations each time we visit. Our granddaughter loves to check out a different game each time--she loves variety.

We hope our guests will return for future vacations to enjoy all that Old Forge offers.
