Retired farmhouse set in the rural foothills of the Adirondacks. Very serene and picturesque countryside with beautiful sunsets. House has two bedrooms, master with king bed and other bed with one queen and one queen blowup and one queen sofa bed that are very comfortable. Rooms are large and spacious. House is a multi pet,indoor/outdoor household when I'm here so please note in case you have allergies. Back deck and large separate patio for parties and bonfires. Also large above ground pool for those hot days. Large lily pond with a boat for fun and a fully set up campsite for those with an adventurous soul. House is located centrally for many interesting day trips. Less than an hour to Cooperstown, Old Forge and maybe 1.5 hours away from Lake George. An 1.25 to either Albany or Syracuse. Great for day trips to come back to a relaxing and peaceful setting. Herkimer diamond mines is 12 miles away and Speculator 30 miles away for a great brunch at Melody Lodge. Winter is also great here as there is a snowmobile trail that runs thru property. Snow shoeing, cross country skiing and hunting are all activities that can be taken advantage of during winter months.

About Bianka C Rico
Hi, I am a commercial designer and I work in NYC and I have a home office up here in the foothills of the adirondacks. I travel for work frequently and am often in a hi paced environment but I love to come here to just chill. Love sitting on the back deck or the pool deck with a glass of wine and watching the sun set..
Bianka C Rico purchased this House in 2003
Why Bianka C Rico chose Cold Brook
I bought this place more than a decade ago while I was living downstate in Jersey City, NJ. I found this place by accident and fell in love with the sunsets! I sold my house downstate in 2007 and made this my permanent residence and never looked back. It is so beautiful and serene and I love falling asleep listening to the peepers at night. I made this my permanent residence however I still travel downstate for work. This is a place of relaxation and ease and nothing too fancy. I love to entertain and share this place with my friends and I have friends that visit here from all over the country and they always love it.

This home reflects the ideas of grace, fun , solitude, attitude, and latitude!
We were a set group of friends who were looking for a relaxing home away from home. We left our families behind, children and fur babies, for an oasis. This home gave us everything we were looking for and so much more. We received quiet calm. We received the ability to just belong. We had more fun than we could manage. This host has a home that can give you everything you are looking for. Just pack your clothing.... you will need nothing more!
What a beautiful review Jessica.. it was a complete pleasure meeting you all and having you guys stay. And I absolutely love the personalizations in my book! ❤️ Thank you!
