About Carolyn

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

Why Carolyn chose Adirondacks

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Once again our stay at this lovely home was truly enjoyed. The home is clean and fully equipped with just about everything you can ask for. Pretty much bring your food, clothes and an attitude to sit back and enjoy Old Forge. We are planning on making this trip again next year.

Awesome home..

  • 5 of 5

We stayed this past July and had the best three days touring Old Forge. The nine of us were more than comfortable in this centrally located home. The house was very clean and had everything we could need. We like it so much we are booking again in July 2016.

Boy weekend at Jim's

  • 5 of 5

My Uncles, cousins, brother and sons get together for one weekend a year to connect with each other. This year we stayed at Jim's Adirondack home in Old Forge. I have nothing but great things to say about this home. It was exceptionally clean and big enough for the 12 of us. The area was great for bike riding, canoeing, fishing or just walking around town. We booked the home again for next years get together.

It was a beautiful house with all the amenities. Even had dog lines, leashes, dishes, picnic chairs and so much more. I would go there again for sure. Centrally located to get to many things.

Perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect. Within walking distance to everything and also a very comfortable house to just hang out in on a rainy day. My kids were already asking if we could stay in the same house next time. I would highly recommend Jim's Adirondack home to anyone looking to experience Old Forge.
