About Joanna

Hi I'm Joanna,

I was born and raised in Long Island, New York. As a child growing up my parents would bring us to the Adirondacks every chance they had to enjoy 'the country'. Over the years my father developed land in the Jay area and built several homes. Heartsong was one of our family homes that was passed down to me.

Now we are the proud owners of Heartsong Retreat. With the help of my husband Peter, and our children Anthony and Maria, we have created the perfect vacation rental.

We invite you to stay at Heartsong and create your own wonderful memories in the Adirondacks.

Joanna purchased this house in 2011

Why Joanna chose Whiteface Mountain

Heartsong sits high on a hill and has views of the magnificent Jay range. With an east/west exposure, we enjoy beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Our location is perfect for the traveler who wants to enjoy the country and be minutes away from all the region has to offer.

What makes this house unique

Our home is Adirondack style with large, gourmet kitchens, hand crafted furniture and plush cozy decor. Most of the decorations are antique and have a story about them.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A BIG THANK YOU!!!!

This home was wonderful and we enjoyed every inch of the spaciousness. The kitchens were great, the decor beautiful, and your hospitality was warm and helpful.

Can't wait to return,

Love... and thanks,

Linda and Dan

Beautiful and pristine property...perfect access to the high peaks

  • 5 of 5

This is a true Adirondack experience and wonderful home with everything we needed to make our stay super comfortable. The rental spaces were immaculately clean, and very comfortable. We truly felt like we were at home away from home. The surrounding area is breathtaking with mountain views, tranquil forests and the cleanest air. The owners are very accommodating and even gave us fresh organic eggs. The property has acres and acres of gorgeous forests and trails to explore. I would highly recommend this property to families or anyone who wants to explore the area.

Perfect Ski Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 14 people and two dogs stayed at Heart-song and truly enjoyed our vacation to the fullest! We couldn't believe how close in proximity to the Olympic ski Mountain this property is for such a great price! Wow! The spaces are absolutely beautiful, very clean, and comfortable...We look forward to a second visit this summer for a hiking adventure!

Thank you to our wonderful kind hosts for giving us a true Adirondack Home away from Home experience!

Cheers, Jack and Judy and company

Thanks for a wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 14 people and two dogs had such an awesome trip staying at Heartsong. This is the ideal place for a special Adirondack vacation. It was also only ten minutes drive to the Olympic Skiing Venue, Whiteface mountain! We couldn't believe how close by it was for this price! Wow! Amazing accommodations! Super cozy, incredibly clean and the staff was very friendly and gracious. This property is highly recommended by us! Six stars!

Thanks Joanna! We love Heartsong and will see you again this summer for a hiking adventure!

Cheers, from Jack and Judy and company.

Wow! Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

This trip was our first time visiting the Adirondacks for an extended stay and it was simply magical! This was made especially possible by our stay at Heartsong, a truly one of a kind experience. My husband and children and I stayed in the first floor lower cottage and it was very comfortable and extremely clean. The kitchen is gorgeous and open and has all amenities. The owner even brought us fresh organic eggs. We loved the accommodations. My parents and family stayed in the guesthouse which is equally beautiful and has a modern cabin feel. Simply gorgeous. Every morning we snowshoes and cross country skied as a family on the property trails and just loved playing with our dogs in the spacious yards. I would highly recommend this rental property to any family and will definitely be booking a longer trip next year. This was such a great value!! Thank you Joanna for a special time at Heartsong! We will see you again next year!

The property is beautiful and very clean however the pictures leave the wrong impression

  • 3 of 5

We are a family of 15 and spent three days over the Presidents Day weekend at this property. While there is ample room , well equipped , and very clean, the pictures create the impression that you will be renting the entire house . In reality you are in a basement apartment with a separate garage converted to guest house, with the owners living in the main house above.

A big problem we encountered with this set up was the owners have large dogs living upstairs (and obviously the basement apartment when not rented). My 14 year old Grandson has severe asthma and is extremely allergic to dogs. Within one hour of our arrival he had an asthma attack . He could not be in the basement apartment at all the entire three days.

This let us with either all squeezing into the very small garage apartment for meals , games and just being together, or leaving him alone in the garage apartment.

The other really big issue was the property is Covered in dog Poop . The kids playing in the snow building a snow man came in covered in dog poop. Just getting into the cars meant the kids would be dragging it into our cars on their feet.

The pictures also show a laundry room. On arrival the owners daughter told us because we would only be there 3 days we shouldn't need it but if we did let her know and they would unlock it.

Even with the issues we encountered it is a beautiful property. I just wish we were more prepared up front & could have made a better decision for our family.

Owner's Response: I am very sorry that this family did not read the details in our description of our property. It clearly states that we rent the lower level of the main house and the entire guest house which offers a one car garage. In total this rental is 5 bedrooms/3 baths with 3 kitchens. We also state that we are pet friendly which anyone considering a family member with allergies should know not to choose. Our own dogs do not occupy our downstairs, but we rent to several people with pets. Our rentals are immaculate inside. I am very sorry for the complaint of dog poop. We had two large snow storms and we were unable to see the poop to clean it up. This was unfortunate and we apologize.
