About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Ready for a very unique experience? Imagine spending time in this modern home, with a rustic dé-cor, located on a quiet, serene and heavily wooded half acre in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains in Central New York State. While “living in the trees”, this location also offers 100 feet of river front on the Historic Moose River. Also unique is the fact that, at the same time, you will have the convenience of public utilities and walking distance to all of the great amenities that the very quaint and Historic Village of Old forge has to offer! “Yup”, just one block away you’ll be right in the middle of all the shopping, dining, movies and other village activities that you can handle!

The house is an open plan with lots of natural light, vaulted pine covered ceilings, a lofted bedroom and numerous views of the River. The Master with a large shower has its own balcony as part of the rear wrap around deck. EACH bedroom has a relatively new, memory foam Queen bed. Two wood fire places will keep the “chill” away on some of those cool evenings. With direct access to the river, canoe and kayak rentals are right next door.

Another unique feature is our rate structure. You’ll find it very competitive for the amenities offered partly due to our “Clean and Save” feature. When you leave the house as clean as you found it (linens, towels, dishes etc.) there will be no charge for cleaning. A quote for the cleaning process can be provided.

Since completion and for allergenic reasons, the “Four Seasons” has never been smoked in nor housed pets. Please help us retain this integrity by leaving the pets at home and limiting smoking to the outdoors. Thanks.

Why John & Marge Nickel chose Adirondacks

We have been visiting Old Forge since 1956 when we were attending college @ SUNY Cortland. We came up weekends to ski at the village slope Maple Ridge. Now the village maintains a much larger facility on McCauley Mountain. Our family purchased the half acre back in 1960 and placed a small mobile home on it. Over the years a large room and fireplace were added with one large roof over the unit. As our family grew ( now 11 Grandchildren) and needing more space we built this home in 2000. Coming back to Old forge is like coming home. All of our children learned to ski here and now the Grand kids are doing the same. What we love most about Old Forge is that, over all this time, the village and it’s residents still maintain that warm , friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Try it once and you will return.

What makes this house unique

The adults enjoy the quiet solitude of this location in the woods. When they feel the need for activity most appealing is the fine dining, first run movies, first rate live, on stage plays, hiking, access to the river for canoeing and the fantastic views from atop McCauley Mountain. A must see is the recently completed Art Center called the 'View'. Most of the above is a convenient walk from the house, Of course the youngsters could spend all their time @ the Water Park and be happy ! They also love swimming at the beach, horseback riding, the river access and boating on te Fulton Chain of Lakes

Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd year renting for a family get together and it is a perfect place for this. The house is fully stocked with appliances and everything you need but food! The home is within walking distance to town, grocery store, library (for wi-fi use), drug store, movies and Water Safari. In the back yard there is a dock on the Moose river which is great for kayaks and canoes. Although we never use it, there is also a great spot for campfires at night. The neighbors are all very friendly and the neighborhood is quiet and you will be guaranteed to see deer roaming in the yard and throughout the area. Nicks lake and theMcCauley mountain chairlift are a 5 minute drive and worth the trip. We are looking forward to our next family vacation there!

Four Seasons Home Old Forge, NY

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, clean, well maintained home with everything you need to stay a week. Grocery store is two blocks away! The three full bathrooms and bedrooms were perfect for three couples. Our goal of just relaxing with family was met! We enjoyed Old Forge on foot , didn't need to drive. Working with John throughout the entire rental process was friendly and proficient. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Four Seasons and recommended staying here.

A weekend with family

  • 5 of 5

This home is a beautiful place to get away and it has everything. The Four Seasons allowed four generations of our family a place to spend time together when visiting the area for a wedding. It is charming and cozy. We enjoyed just sitting on the deck taking in the scenery. The kids loved that the deer come so close to the property. You feel like you are in the wilderness but you are literally one block away from the main street so you can walk to everything. We are hoping to go back when we can spend more time.

Four Seasons in the Adirondacks - A Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Four Seasons in the Adirondacks ---Absolutely Gorgeous! Between the 6 adults on vacation here, we’ve been on multiple Cruises, been to the Eastern & Western Caribbean, Sandals Resorts 2X and went to Gatlinburg last year. We all agreed that this beautiful Old Forge Home has everything you need! Beautiful weather, crisp clean air and Mother Nature right out the door. We all did the kayaking and the Adirondack Boat Tour on Fulton Chain of Lakes and souvenir shopping in Old Forge. But for me, the best part was sitting on the back deck drinking coffee and watching the deer in the morning. John (the owner) and Cindy (caretaker) were always available if needed and made us feel so welcome. Everyone now considers this our Home away from Home! A week is not long enough…Highly Recommended!!!

We hope your future vacation plans will include our "little hideaway". John

Best vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 stayed at the Four Seasons for the past week. It exceeded our expectations. Owner John was great to deal with, he made the whole process easy. You will not be disappointed, the pictures on the site are accurate and actually don't do it justice. Way roomier than we thought, and they thought of everything you could possibly need! We enjoyed renting kayaks from Tickners which was within walking distance. Everything you would want in town is an easy walk, kids enjoyed walking to get ice cream. On our one rainy day we took the kids to the Strand to see the Minion movie. We had a family of 4 deer visit the backyard daily, the kids loved seeing them. We also found Nicks Lake beach to be great, and we kayaked there too. The beach in town is clean and has an awesome ship for the kids to play on with slides, steering, port holes and more. Fishing off the dock on the property was a favorite daily activity for my son. Thanks John for sharing your home with us, we will always have fond memories of our time there. We hope to visit again.
