About Ralph Kimbrell

Hi, my name is Ralph I am a graduate of the NYS Ranger School, I love the Adirondack Mountains, Forest, and waters.There is somthing magical about the woods, the aroma of pines, the fresh air, the sound of the wind through the forest, the sound of a mountain river. I own and operate Mountain River Properties, and build, sell or lease Cabins in the woods, and sell land also. Come on up and enjoy the pristine setting that the Independence River Cabin offers.

I am also a singer/ songwriter/guitar player and have an album and 2 singles released (on I-tunes and other sites), mostly christian contemporary music. My favorite place to play guitar is with friends around a camp fire.

Ralph Kimbrell purchased this cabin in 2011

Perfect destination. Visited in April and loved it, so we came back this Labor Day weekend! Can't wait to return, great hiking and fishing. Nestled at the bottom of a hill next to the Independence River, just beautiful and peaceful. Btw: No neighbors!

absolutely breathtaking in every way

  • 5 of 5

Spent the most wonderful week at independence river cabin. the cabin and river are mesmerizing and by the end of the week we felt so relaxed and stress free. We explored the area and there are plenty of things to do, or if you just want to sit on the swing that overlooks the river and enjoy the best that nature has to offer. The cabin itself is beautiful and well laid out. Everything has been thought of for your comfort. The owner takes great pride in his cabin and its reflected in the condition of the cabin itself. Our main goal on this vacation was to "get away" from the 8 million people crammed onto long island, and just enjoy the peace and quite and nature at its best. So you are aware, the driveway down to the cabin itself is quite steep but our 4 wheel drive truck managed it just fine. For those of you with cars ,there is a large parking area at top of driveway. If you are looking for awesome meat and choices for the BBQ, look no further than Millers Market in Lowville . Theirs a Walmart in Lowville that has everything you will need in case you forgot anything. Eating out, Gary's in Lowville does a nice job of breakfast. Dinner at Jebs (Lowville) is also not to be missed. Absolutely everyone is so friendly and has a story so sit back , relax, and enjoy all that Independence River Cabin has to offer. I guarantee you will walk away not the same person you were when you arrived.

Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

Everything the other reviews have said is true!

This cabin and setting is just beautiful! Every time we left the cabin, I was itching to get back. A private natural playland for all of us. We sat for hours in the middle of the water, jumping from rock to rock, wading upstream, and swimming. The old forest is magical with so much to explore. You can tell Ralph takes pride in his homes and property, and created a lasting memory for our family. Already planning our next trip to this special place!

Breath Taking

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was fantastic. It is so wonderful that Ralph allowed my dogs to come. The had a ball running around & playing in the water. Just sitting outside listening to the river is wonderful you really don't need a television for entertainment. If you want a relaxing riverside cabin this is the place. We will be going there again. My only complaint is I wish the furniture inside was more comfortable. Anyone who goes there will have a relaxing wonderful time. I promise!!!

The "Adirondacks"

The Adirondack Park covers some 6.1 million acres, a land area roughly the size of Vermont and greater than the National Parks of Yellowstone, Grand Canyon, Glacier and Great Smoky Mountains combined. The Adirondack Park is a publicly protected area encompassing much of the northeastern portion of Upstate New York. It is the largest state protected area in the contiguous United States, and the largest National Historic Landmark.

Located on the Otter Creek horse trail system ,includes 65 miles of horse trails located on Independence River and Otter Creek State Forest. Located within the Adirondack park.These trails on the state forest are also great hiking trails and cross country ski trails. Trails wind through wooded areas along Adirondack ponds, gently flowing waters like otter, little otter, beaver meadow, chase and crooked creeks, and the independence river and Gleasmans Falls.The Otter Creek State Forest horse stables are 2.5 mies away, and close to many private horse back riding stables.
