Why Terri Jamison chose Warrensburg

We could not resist this property for we owned 200 acres adjoining it, and patiently watched as Scott Thomas, master woodworker with origins in Princeton, New Jersey, meticulously renovated it over the course of a decade. One step inside this house reminded us of our home in Buck County, around New Hope, Pennsylvania. The rich wood and stone work and primitive styles mixed with colonial classic was a familiar and comforting memory of our past lives before moving to the Adirondacks in 1994. Having lived on this bend on the Schroon River, at the base of the "Three Sisters" mountain range, for ten years, and growing to appreciate the evolving nature of the River across the way, the view of river that the Schoolhouse afforded was irresistible. Perched high on the hill, overlooking the entire bend in the river, the house was the gatekeeper of the mountains that stretch along the Hudson and Schroon Rivers, and an essential piece of the puzzle that we call "Good Earthy Park".

This place was fantastic, such a wonderful place for a family.

  • 5 of 5

We never booked a vacation rental before, we wanted to bring our adult children and their spouses along with 4 young children for the week. This house made the vacation possible and we had a great time.

The house was great for families, it was so well equipped for entertaining, relaxing, and exceptionally clean. The kitchen is wonderful with many large pots and pans, bowls, and cooking utensils. Off the kitchen is a great screened porch with views of the river.

All the beds are new and very comfortable in well appointed bedrooms. There is a large upper bedroom that would be great for one family or used as a kids room.

The main area of the house is great for lots of people and the sun room area affords a great view of the backyard and access to the large patio. Each evening, all ten of us dined on the large picnic table outside. WE enjoyed the firepit and the gas grill is new and works great.

There's a ton of games, puzzles, fishing poles, and toys for all ages. A great entertainment system is found in the living room.

The laundry area is modern and bright. Our family had fun in the backyard roaming the many trails and the tree house. The pond is a bit longer hike but one can drive there if they wish.

We had several activities planned for the Lake George area and it is a quick 10 minute drive to the Lake George village. For swimming we visited wonderful Echo Lake, 5 minutes away.

This property made our trip fun and successful. I would highly recommend this property.
