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

Great ski vacation stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Heartsong. The apartments were very comfortable and had everything we needed. The surrounding property is beautiful and private. Parking was convenient and we were able to park the cars right outside our apartments. The driveway was always plowed. The owners were super helpful with getting firewood for the fire pit and recommending places to eat and visit during our stay.

Mountain Riding at its Finest

  • 5 of 5

Heartsong was a perfect place to be with my whole family during a summer family reunion. An amazing experience! We had the basement and the apartments over the garage. Each room was prettier and more unique than the next and all 14 of us were happy.

The personal touches of this property make it stand out. Every morning we were treated to something from the garden, and the fresh country eggs were like nothing we had ever tasted before. Nights around the fire pit were perfect for watching fireflies and watching the stars.

We were so impressed by the location, the rooms, the amenities, the graciousness of our hostess, and the bucolic ease of this oasis in the Adirondacks. The motorcycle riding was amazing in this part of NY, and we can't wait to come back for the winter fun.

This is absolutely the best rental I have ever stayed in. Now if I could just bring Joanna back home with me to decorate my house.....

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!
