Old Adirondacks Charm

Aunt Dora's house is rustic in the way of a mountain cabin, yet spacious enough for a family reunion. It has loads of character... an antique organ, a lovely old photo of Aunt Dora as a girl, a superb collection of books, and a simplicity that seems just right for time spent in the Adirondacks. I fell in love with the screened porch from the moment I arrived. There was a gentle rain falling, and it was so peaceful sitting in there with my daughter and my niece and a glass of wine. The large deck in front of the house was also a great place for stories and conversation, and the huge living room hosted several rounds of our old campfire songs to the accompaniment of three guitars. In the morning there was usually a gathering in the kitchen as people drifted in for coffee. Dinner time found us setting up a buffet on the kitchen table, and some took their plates out to the screened porch while others gravitated to the dining room table. At all times there was plenty of room to sit and read a book by oneself or to join in whatever was going on at the moment. It just never felt crowded. The entire family enjoyed the week at Aunt Dora's, and I personally would go back in a heartbeat!

Owner's Response: This guest and his family seem to have hit on the features that my family and I have been enjoying for more than a century. We hope they'll return next year!
