About Claire

Retired couple from Connecticut. We love Old Forge and have been coming here for 20 years. It is our second home and we look forward to sharing our Adirondack experience with you and your family!

Claire purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Claire chose Adirondacks

Best possible location, one block walk to town, and directly on the Moose River with serene river views and private dock for Kayaking or canoeing, easy river access!

What makes this cabin unique

Have the feeling of being in a remote area with all of nature around you but you are still within walking distance of all the conviences of town.

Quaint little cabin on the Moose!

  • 4 of 5

Nice, cozy cabin for 2 on the Moose River. Property was as advertised - clean and well-appointed. Within easy walk of Old Forge town center. Caught a 3-foot Northern Pike off the dock within 15 minutes of arrival. We would rent this property again without hesitation.

Beautiful and quiet property

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed in the cabin for a weekend and it was the perfect getaway. Being right on the river made it so relaxing to sit outside by the firepit or on the dock. We brought kayaks and took a nice trip up the river. It is also closely located to town near all the restaurants and shops. The space was perfect for 2 people and we even cooked dinner for ourselves one night. It was supplied with everything we needed. We also enjoyed eating dinner out on the back covered porch during a storm. I would highly recommend this cabin for anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing time! We will definitely be back!

Very cozy cabin for two.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a short get away. The only downside for a couple is there are only twin beds. This cabin is adorable and well furnished. Total mountain rustic decor right down to the dishes and silverware! Well equipped...the owner has thought of everything you could need. The only thing we needed to bring is sheets and towels (and bed pillows.....we like to sleep on our pillows). They even provide dry wood to enjoy a fire in the fire pit! Short walking distance to shops and restaurants in downtown Old Forge. We had deer come right up to us at our door. Overall an enjoyable stay.

Above and Beyond!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this charming cabin on the Moose River. When we arrived, the cabin was spotless and cozy, as other reviewers have noted. Loved the owner's artwork and all the wonderful touches that made it so warm and inviting. Also loved the screened porch looking out on the river. Unfortunately, there was a problem with the cable, due to a new digital box that had recently been installed. Within minutes of calling the caretaker, his tech-savvy college student grandson arrived, and spent two hours working with the cable company in an effort to install a new box. In the meantime, our gracious host invited us to stay in the chalet, which did have cable, and was just a few steps away. When it appeared the cable company was not going to be able to connect us for a few days, we moved to the chalet. This is a much bigger home with three beautiful bedrooms and a gorgeous deck. Since it was not being rented during our stay, the owners kindly let us use the larger house with no additional fee! My first thought was how fun it would be to rent both houses for a family gathering. Both are lovely, in a quiet and peaceful setting on the water, with a boat rental company just down the road. Also in walking distance is the charming town of Old Forge and Thendara. So you really have the best of everything--a peaceful riverfront retreat and restaurants, shops, and walking trails. Both houses are also very well equipped. Most important, the owners went well above and beyond their obligations to make our stay comfortable and to make sure we had cable! We would love to return!
