About Ralph Kimbrell

Hi, my name is Ralph I am a graduate of the NYS Ranger School, I love the Adirondack Mountains, Forest, and waters.There is somthing magical about the woods, the aroma of pines, the fresh air, the sound of the wind through the forest, the sound of a mountain river. I own and operate Mountain River Properties, and build, sell or lease Cabins in the woods, and sell land also. Come on up and enjoy the pristine setting that the Independence River Cabin offers.

I am also a singer/ songwriter/guitar player and have an album and 2 singles released (on I-tunes and other sites), mostly christian contemporary music. My favorite place to play guitar is with friends around a camp fire.

Ralph Kimbrell purchased this cabin in 2011

Relaxing, beautiful location, great cabin

  • 5 of 5

This location was wonderful. We arrived to a river covered in a blanket of ice and snow and had the privilege of watching it thaw. I sent the owner Ralph a video of it to post on the rental site. It was an incredible sound when blocks of ice fell in the river and were quickly whisked away. It made us run to the river every time. We had the fluctuation in weather you get in early spring, one day it was 57 degrees followed by 27 and three inches of snow the next day.

The cabin is well constructed, clean and very warm when you get a good fire going. Although heated, it is not necessary to use. The kitchen is nicely stocked, the shower works great and the bed is comfortable. The dish TV works great and it is a cozy room with the wood stove and TV together. The cabin is above the river but at the bottom of a hill. Very nice location, quiet and secluded. Ralph is very nice and accommodating. I will rent this property again.

Ralph's log cabin.

  • 5 of 5

It was the most well kept place I have ever stayed in, clean, and had all of the necessary items such as blankets, kitchen items, and chopped wood for the wood stove. The wood stove was super fun- it was nice to have heat and it was nice to have zero to little service. It was also awesome to be right next to a stream of water and to hear the water rushing. Recommend it 100% and would definitely go back!

It doesn't get any better than this

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a quite peaceful get-away, this is the place. The cabin is beautiful, comfortable, and fully equipped. This plot of land on the river is magnificent. This is the perfect place to kick back, read a book, while listening to the babbling river.

My wife, daughter, dog, and I spent the week here hiking and relaxing. We opted not to do a lot of sightseeing except for a visit to Tughill Vineyards, which we recommend. Also on the way to Lowville, is Miller's Meat Market. A great place to get smoked pork loin on Monday and ribs on Thursday.

If you decide to hike to Gleasmens Falls, be prepared to encounter many low wet muddy areas. Good waterproof hiking boots are in order.

This is a great place and we have booked for next year.

Serenity on the River

  • 5 of 5

My two brothers, father, and I stayed for four nights on this wonderful hunk of the Independence River and if we didn't leave the cabin, we would have never seen another soul. The cabin is well appointed and just the right amount of space for us four. I would think this would be a very good cabin for a couple with children. We appointed cabin with a nice gas grill and welcoming fire pit that we used nightly. If you are coming to the cabin to fish for Brook Trout, there are fish in the river but the fishing is challenging and often frustrating. But if you are in the area to explore the beautiful river and woods, you couldn't find a better base camp.
