Located on a quiet road with open fields and mountain views, this recently renovated cottage is clean, beautifully built, warm and comfortable. All new kitchen with new appliances and zinc countertop, new bath with hand-tiled tub and shower. All wood walls and floors, fine craftsmanship with rustic touches. Downstairs bedroom with queen bed and upstairs bunkroom with queen and two singles will sleep two couples, or small family comfortably. Also perfect for one or two people who want privacy and peace. We do not cater to large groups. Gas furnace heats the house well, plus electric heat in the bathroom makes showers warm and comfy. A wood stove in the living room with large glass viewing door is perfect for evening relaxation with a glass of wine in cool weather.

A wood stove in the living room with large glass viewing door is perfect for evening relaxation with a glass of wine in cool weather. House is situated on 100 private acres you can roam at will on foot, cross country skis or snowshoes. Trails lead to your own beautiful waterfall behind the house, to a high bank above Minerva stream with private access for canoe or kayak, or through the woods nearby where we allow the New York State to maintain a trail to ponds with a public lean-to if you want to experience Adirondack camping. Once you arrive, you will be 2 miles from the small hamlet of Olmstedville with its gas station and general store and a delightful local restaurant (Li'l Nonny's) with wonderful home style breakfast and lunch until Columbus Day: 8 miles from North Creek with stores, restaurants and bars (we recommend Bar Vino for delicious food and a good wine list), and a slow train to Saratoga Springs. Rafting trips down the Hudson can be arranged in summer months, there's the exciting White Water Derby the first weekend in May each year, and nearby Gore Mountain has great skiing during the winter season with biking and gondola trips in warm weather. You are an hour and a half from the Governor's mansion in Albany; two hours from a lovely French restaurant in Montreal; or four hours from NYC for nearly everything else in the world. At home in your cozy cottage you may see a deer across the street or an eagle cruising the sky, or hear coyotes or owls howling after dark in late Summer and through Autumn. The night sky shows you the brilliance and beauty of the Milky Way and if you are lucky, the Northern Lights will shine. You are in the middle of a beautiful natural area, yet right on a paved road. We do the snow-shoveling in winter and mow the lawn in the summer. Natural Stone Bridge and Caves is 10 miles east in Pottersville - great for both kids and adults - you can swim there and see some natural Adirondack caves without special clothing or equipment. The High Peaks and lots of comfortable climbs are within striking distance in all directions - Crane Mountain in nearby Johnsburg, with great views for a relatively short climb, is our favorite. You can also climb Snider, located behind our caretaker's home, which is walking distance from the house.More
