The SpaceThis adorable cabin offers beautiful mountains views and an easy scenic drive up 87 from NYC. The kitchen has a bank of windows soaking in the south facing views of Gore Mountain, a treasured collection of copper pots and pans and an antique milkshake machine. There are reused antique beams, leaded glass reproduction windows from a wrecking yard, a rebuilt Vermont Castings woodstove, art work and Asian artifacts shipped to us when my parents recently downsized. Somehow, it all came together -- the cottage has the true characteristic of Adirondack life as so our other on-site cottages. We have a happy lab dog that greets people and free-ranging old pony.

For another $63 each way, we’ll get your group back and forth to the local train station. Our car fits four people plus the driver (me!) And while you’re here, feel free to borrow our little Oldsmobile car to get to town, the lake, out to eat and such! No charge … And if you don’t drive, we’re happy to do some grocery shopping for you, drop you off rafting or at the lake, and such….

The SpaceLovingly restored by the great-granddaughter of the original owners, this unique historic cottage still retains many original details and decorations - visitors say they feel like they’re stepping back in time. There are lovely leaded glass windows, a handsome rustic stone fireplace (retrofit with a Vermont Castings woodstove insert), richly stained wood walls, beautifully faded oriental rugs and original china. There is a tidy new country kitchen with reclaimed porcelain sink, new gas stove, fridge, microwave, dishes and utensils. There is a new gas furnace and the cottage has been fully insulated. The wind makes the snowflakes dance wildly through the deep snowy meadows, but inside is cozy and warm. Upstairs are two bedrooms each with a double bed (new mattresses and linens), wide pine floors, and country décor. And at last --- after 100 years of our relatives using an outside “privy” back when this was just a summer “camp”, we have a bathroom -- clawfoot tub with shower hoop and beautiful vessel sink on original ladies wash vanity. Towels and soaps provided. The bathroom window offers the best view of the mountains. There are treasured family hand-me-downs as well as odds and ends which nobody felt comfortable throwing away. Like all family camps, there are bits and pieces of everyone who came before; wooden floors record the scuffs and scratches of generations. There are many photographs showing life at “camp” since the turn of the century. All this gives this Adirondack cottage its own special personality, a unique sense of space --- a treasury of feelings, sensations and memories of family and friends. The house sleeps four to six comfortably: there are two bedrooms each with double beds, and downstairs are two comfortable couches. For larger gatherings, we have two other rental cabins on our property. The land is truly spectacular. In summer, wildflower meadows spill down the hill, flanked by beautiful forests --- and in winter with snow on the ground, these hills are fantastic for sledding for both children and grownups. Bring your own sled, and borrow one of ours! We welcome your well-behaved dog. Previous visitors have taken great pleasure in being able to let their dog off leash to run and play with our sweet goofy lab dog Sammy, romping, running and being free dogs. We have a free-ranging pony who wanders the property, enjoying a handout of apples or bananas (he likes them peeled, please). In the summer, we keep chickens and children (and adults!) love to go to the chicken coop to get fresh eggs; we also have gardens where you are welcome to pick peas, tomatoes and lettuce. The Hudson River is at the bottom of our little mountain. In the spring, summer and fall, there is white water rafting for reasonable rates. You can also rent a tube and float down river (the nearby rafting company can rent you the tubes, then pick you up and then bring you back). Of course, the river offers fishing, bathing or just a great place to sit by and think. So make time to get away! It’s an easy scenic drive from NYC --- just go north right up Route 87, get off just past Lake George and then a beautiful 30 miles through the mountains to our place. WE WILL PICK YOU UP! Many of our guests come from NYC and struggle with the whole car rental thing and the hassle of driving. So here’s a way to make it easier for you to get here … (and to build up our business): Take the Amtrak train from Penn Station on Friday morning at 8:15 and arrive at 12:30 in Fort Edward/Glens Falls where we will pick you up in a Lincoln Continental (okay, it’s 15 years old but low mileage and a wonderful gift from my father) and within an hour, you’ll be here!

Guest AccessIf you need a babysitter or someone to take care of your dog while you're skiing, rafting or out to dinner, we have teenagers at your disposal. In summer, we also have a studio over our barn where your children can to do some arts and crafts, play a board game, do some puzzles or watch a movie. Our over-the-barn-studio also (email hidden) and dance, pilates and yoga CD's. How about learning how to mat and frame a picture? Bring some photos or art work and your hostess Leslie will mat and frame them up with you; you'll take something pretty home as well as learning a new skill... Learn some country skills – join us for a canning workshop! Pick your own berries or tomatoes and then learn how to can them; take home something wonderful to eat this winter while remembering your summer and fall vacation in the Adirondacks! Interaction with GuestsWe live on the property so we're here if you need anything, otherwise we leave our guests alone to enjoy their privacy. We have a young lab named Sammy who greets everyone with enthusiasm; if it's okay with you, Sammy will have a sleepover. We have an old pony who free ranges around the property, and likes to graze near our cottages. The NeighborhoodWe have about 40 acres of land, much of cleared with amazing views, also pristine woods, a spring fed pond. There are several cottages on our property for rent and we can accommodate larger groups. We call ourselves the North River Hobby Farm. The area is very safe ... no bears, no weird neighbors and no ghosts in the historic cemetery next door. Getting AroundYou will need a car. Other Things to NoteA trip to the Adirondacks should be memorable and authentic. If that's what you're looking for, we'd love to have you!

The SpaceEnjoy cool breezes and comfortable mountain temperatures! Commanding beautiful mountain views and located on the edge of a forest in a wildflower meadow, this lovely new canvas cabin ... a marvelous “glamping” tent ... is built on a deck and fully furnished. Enjoy a comfortable bed with hand-made feather quilts and pretty antique furniture. In the tent, there are lights, oriental rugs, a sofa and decorations. There is a front deck with Adirondack chairs, and off the back is a private porch with beautiful flowers. We have four glamping tents, Glamp Richard, Glamp Suzanne, Glamp Bernice and Glamp Thomas which are spaciously set apart for privacy yet an easy walk to the Bath House and our renovated barn where there is a common kitchen. Elsewhere on the property we have two cabins, Authentic Adirondack Bird Camp which has two bedrooms, and Delightful Hobby Farm Guest House which has one bedroom. The tents have a “fly” over them so they stay remarkably cool during the day and completely waterproof. At night, zip up the canvas windows and doors, and stay cozy under handmade feather quilts. In September and October, we add an electric heater for extra warmth. The new Bath House has a women’s side with two toilets, a shower and double vanity with glass vessel sinks; ditto for the men’s side. In the nearby barn/lodge, there is also a lovely new bathroom with an old-fashion claw foot tub where you can enjoy a deep bath with lavender salts. We provide nice towels and soap. There is a clothesline outside where we hang the sheets to dry so they get a fresh mountain smell (I’m in love with my clothesline and enjoy hanging the linens out to dry in the wind). In the barn, there is a large country kitchen with individual refrigerators for each tent as well as several sinks, a stove, microwave, toaster, utensils, cutting boards, glasses and the basics for putting together a nice meal. Outside are several charcoal grills and a gas grill. There are jars of granola, cereal, coffee, tea, sugar and such. There are boxes of chocolate, graham crackers, marshmallows and sticks for “smores” making. At dusk, we get the bonfire going so guests can relax in hand-built Adirondack chairs to watch the fire and the stars. There is no “light pollution” so it is an amazing experience to see thousands of stars, night clouds, moonscapes. We have a flock of free ranging chickens that are very sweet and enjoy handouts of leftover salad, bread and such. They can be picked up easily and are very friendly. Also there are eight shy sweet ducks that waddle around the property; the ducks greatly enjoy it when there is fresh water run into their little swimming pool they are so joyous when they’re in water. The ducks are sweet but shy away from people (oh no! humans!). Unlike the chickens that wander all day and come back together only to sleep, the ducks are co-dependent and stick together all the time; if one duck is separated, they all quack until they get back together. So yes, country life can be noisy with the chickens cackling and the ducks quacking! We have a gentle old Pony (aptly named PonyBoy) who wanders around the property. He sleeps a lot, flat out in a bed of straw by the chicken coop, or in the grass by the driveway. He also likes to stand right next to our kitchen door outside the window so he can hear the sound of our family and know what’s going on. He likes to bang the screen door open with his nose, or stick his head through the dog door. Sometimes it’s cute; other times it’s just annoying so we shoo him away with a kitchen towel. PonyBoy enjoys carrots, apples, fruit and such; best to toss the food on the ground instead of trying to feed him since he can’t tell the difference between your fingers and a carrot. And of course there is Sammy Dog, a lab/shepherd mix, who bounds around the property, visiting all our guests, laying down on the porch and steps waiting for people to come home. Be careful coming down the driveway because he sometimes leaps unexpectedly in front of cars all goofy and happy. He can come in and even sleep over if you want (just send us a text message so we know where he is). Our two cabins are best set up for visiting dogs, but it’s more difficult to host dogs because it’s easier for them to slip out. Visiting dogs have to be kept on leash unless we can see clearly that your dog has no interest in chasing our chickens or ducks; some dogs could care less about eating the birds and would rather run around with our dog Sammy. We find that small dogs in particular are chicken/duck chasers. It’s not a bad thing, it’s just in their nature! The lake is three miles down the winding road …13th Lake it is called and it is just beautiful. Totally natural and quiet with no sign of civilization on its shores. The Hudson River is at the bottom of our mountain; clear beautiful water; you go tubing or rafting with the various rafting companies located right nearby. The town of North Creek is five miles away off the main Route 28 road but it’s easy to miss so look for the 3 or 4 signs that mark the entrance to “town”. North Creek is a scenic little town with some great restaurants, a grocery store, liquor store, some shopping places and a scenic train called the Saratoga/North Creek Railroad which takes folks in antique train cars along the Hudson River. Gore Mountain Ski Center is off Route 28 in North Creek. Frequently they run the gondola so for about $18 a person, you can take the gondola to the top of the mountain …. Incredible views, beautiful fresh air, a lovely experience. All kinds of hiking at Gore Mountain. Another great experience is nearby Garnet Hill Lodge, an historic lodge offering lunches and dinners … beautiful property, amazing views, great food. It’s located right up the road in North River. They rent mountain bikes and have all kinds of walking trails. So .... Enjoy amazing mountain day views and glorious stargazing by night ... this might be the most special vacation you’ve ever had! Quiet and tranquil … safely and privately located at the edge of our Hobby Farm where you can enjoy a beautiful tent, ducks and chickens, a sweet lab dog and a gentle pony.. If you're looking for additional space, we have other cottages on the property as well ... Guest AccessThe four glamping tents share a beautiful new Bath House which has a women’s bath and a men’s bath, each with showers. Our renovated barn which we call the Lodge has a common country kitchen with individual refrigerators, dishes, utensils, stove and sinks. We have two kayaks which we can deliver to the nearby lake for you for a modest fee. Guests are invited to pick from our garden. We like to spend a few minutes with guests to show them what’s in season and how to harvest. Usually there is salad mixes, herbs, peas until it gets too hot for them and later in the summer, finally, tomatoes! There is a chicken coop where guests can get their own eggs. The ducks lay eggs in various spots under the bushes here and there. We have 40 acres of rolling beautiful property with varying mountain vistas, several ponds, open glorious wildflower meadows, apple orchards, streams and woods. So when folks ask where to go hiking, we suggest they start right here on the property first! Interaction with GuestsWe live on the property so we're around to make recommendations for swimming, rafting and dining. We get the nightly bonfire going, and keep the common kitchen and bathroom clean, but otherwise leave guests to enjoy themselves on their own. During the day, we’re pretty busy with the mowing, firewood, painting projects and laundry, but it is pleasant to spend some time with our guests to hear about life outside the Adirondacks! The NeighborhoodWe own 40 acres of land so it’s very private and quiet, and safe! We have open meadows to walk, woods to explore and even the road we’re on is wonderful for walking; you’ll pass by some wonderful old cemeteries and farmhouses. Getting AroundYou will need a car. Other Things to NoteWe have two other rental cottages on our property and have great reviews from previous guests. If you look at my Profile, you'll be able to see our other listings as well as our reviews. We love hosting folks!!!! WHAT IS GLAMPING? “Glamping” --- a combination of glamorous and camping --- has recently become popular with vacation travelers and outdoor enthusiasts who want to be outside in a beautiful natural environment without the hassle of pitching a tent or sleeping on the ground. The idea of roughing it during a camping trip might sound appealing to many vacationers if it weren't for having to consider, gather, purchase, pack and then carry in everything you need to go camping. That is where “glamping” comes in --- it’s an already set-up tent with a beautiful bed, a nearby hot shower and fairy lights. The trend is growing in popularity --- starting in Europe --- now here in the United State: glamorous camping, otherwise known as glamping. When “glamping”, there’s no tent to pitch and no sleeping bag to unroll. Instead, visitors arrive to find a beautiful canvas tent set up on a wooden platform, a bed made up with nice linens, a nice bathroom nearby and a blazing fire with Adirondack lawn chairs around it. Add gorgeous views of Gore Mountain, a scenic Hobby Farm with its scenic gardens and a few gentle farm animals set amoungst acres of Adirondack wildflowers, and it’s a slice of heaven. HISTORY OF CAMPING 'Camping out' is becoming merely a name for moving out of one’s permanent habitation and dwelling for a few weeks in a well-built lodge, smaller than one’s home, but as comfortable and almost as convenient; with tables, chairs and crockery, carpets and curtains, beds with sheets and blankets on real bedsteads, a stove and its full outfit of cooking utensils, wherefrom meals are served in the regular ways of civilization… This misnamed camping out has become a fashion which seems likely to last till the shores are as thronged as the towns, and the woods are spoiled for real campers…." ~ Rowland Evans Robinson, In New England Fields and Woods, 1896 "From my experience and observation, I am thoroughly convinced that camp-life in dry places, and at a reasonable altitude above the water, especially in a pine grove, has a wonderful effect in benefitting and restoring weak lungs." ~ The Adirondacks as a Health Resort, 1886

    Starting out as a small barn, this structure evolved into an adorable cottage just steps away from an amazing vegetable garden (yes, please go pick some peas!) The kitchen has a bank of windows soaking in the south facing views of Gore Mountain, a treasured collection of copper pots and pans and an antique milkshake machine. There are reused antique beams, leaded glass reproduction windows from a wrecking yard, a rebuilt Vermont Castings woodstove, art work and Asian artifacts shipped to us when my parents recently downsized. Somehow, it all came together -- the Farmstand seems to have an instantaneous lore, an essential characteristic of camp life. Upstairs is a loft bedroom with queen bed; downstairs is a twin bed off an alcove; and a sofa to snooze on. We have a lively happy lab dog that greets people and free-ranging old pony. Summers are wonderful with cool mountain breezes, nearby lakes and the Hudson River to swim, bathe or fish in.

      Enjoy cool breezes and comfortable mountain temperatures! Commanding beautiful mountain views and located on the edge of a forest in a wildflower meadow, this lovely new canvas cabin ... a marvelous “glamping” tent ... is built on a deck and fully furnished. Enjoy a comfortable bed with hand-made feather quilts and pretty antique furniture. In the tent, there are lights, oriental rugs, a sofa and decorations. There is a front deck with Adirondack chairs, and off the back is a private porch with beautiful flowers. We have two glamping tents, Glamp Richard and Glamp Suzanne, which are set about fifty feet apart. Glamp Richard has a king sized water bed, and Glamp Suzanne has two queen beds (very comfortable double high air mattresses). Elsewhere on the property we have two cabins, Authentic Adirondack Bird Camp which has two bedrooms, and Delightful Hobby Farm Guest House which has one bedroom. Nearby is our renovated barn where there is a lovely new bathroom with an old-fashion claw foot tub --- it has a shower but we encourage folks to enjoy a deep bath with lavender salts. We provide nice towels, soap and such; there is a clothesline outside where we hang the sheets to dry so they get a fresh mountain smell (I’m in love with my clothesline … I wash all the linens in town, then enjoy hanging them out to dry). Also in the barn is a kitchenette with sink, microwave, toaster, utensils, cutting boards, glasses and the basics for putting together a simple breakfast, making sandwiches or for grilling over the two charcoal grills just outside the door. We have jars of granola and cereal, coffee, tea, sugar and such. There is a small fridge for each of our two tents where we leave butter, cream, ketchup and yogurt for folks. There is a bonfire with Adirondack chairs around it. We get the fire going at dusk. In the barn are jars of chocolate, graham crackers, marshmellows and sticks so you can make smores. We have a flock of free ranging chickens that are very sweet and enjoy handouts of leftover salad, bread and such. They can be picked up easily and are very friendly. Also there are four nice ducks that waddle around the property. Outside the barn is a toddler’s swimming pool which we fill up with fresh water a couple times a day so that the ducks can bathe and drink; they are so joyous when they’re in water. The ducks are sweet but shy away from people (oh no! humans!). Unlike the chickens that wander all day and come back together only to sleep, the ducks are co-dependent and stick together all the time; if one duck is separated, they all quack until they get back together. So yes, country life can be noisy with the chickens cackling and the ducks quacking! We have a gentle old Pony (aptly named PonyBoy) who wanders around the property. He sleeps a lot, flat out in a bed of straw by the chicken coop, or in the grass by the driveway. He also likes to stand right next to our kitchen door outside the window so he can hear the sound of our family and know what’s going on. He likes to bang the screen door open with his nose, or stick his head through the dog door. Sometimes it’s cute; other times it’s just annoying so we shoo him away with a kitchen towel. PonyBoy enjoys carrots, apples, fruit and such; best to toss the food on the ground instead of trying to feed him since he can’t tell the difference between your fingers and a carrot. And of course there is Sammy Dog, a lab/shepherd mix, who bounds around the property, visiting all our guests, laying down on the porch waiting for people to come home. Be careful coming down the driveway because he sometimes leaps unexpectedly in front of cars all goofy and happy. We have two cabins, and two glamping tents. The cabins are best set up for visiting dogs, but it’s more difficult to host dogs because it’s easier for them to slip out. Visiting dogs have to be kept on leash unless we can see clearly that your dog has no interest in chasing our chickens or ducks; some dogs could care less about eating the birds and would rather run around with our dog Sammy. We find that small dogs in particular are chicken/duck chasers. It’s not a bad thing, it’s just in their nature! In the early evening, we get the central bonfire going for people and then leave folks to enjoy. There’s a stack of dry firewood nearby. If you need help, we can get the charcoal grill started for people as well. There is no “light pollution” so the stargazing is incredible up here. The tents have a “fly” over them so they stay remarkably cool during the day. At night, zip up the canvas windows and doors, and stay cozy under handmade feather quilts. In September and October, we add an electric heater for extra warmth. And yes, the tents are completely waterproof even in a heavy downpour. The lake is three miles down the winding road …13th Lake it is called and it is just beautiful. Totally natural and quiet with no sign of civilization on its shores. The Hudson River is at the bottom of our mountain; clear beautiful water; you go tubing or rafting with the various rafting companies located right nearby. The town of North Creek is five miles away off the main Route 28 road but it’s easy to miss so look for the 3 or 4 signs that mark the entrance to “town”. North Creek is a scenic little town with some great restaurants, a grocery store, liquor store, some shopping places and a scenic train called the Saratoga/North Creek Railroad which takes folks in antique train cars along the Hudson River. Gore Mountain Ski Center is off Route 28 in North Creek. Frequently they run the gondola so for about $18 a person, you can take the gondola to the top of the mountain …. Incredible views, beautiful fresh air, a lovely experience. All kinds of hiking at Gore Mountain. Another great experience is nearby Garnet Hill Lodge, an historic lodge offering lunches and dinners … beautiful property, amazing views, great food. It’s located right up the road in North River. They rent mountain bikes and have all kinds of walking trails. So … Enjoy amazing mountain day views and glorious stargazing by night ... this might be the most special vacation you’ve ever had! Quiet and tranquil … safely and privately located at the edge of our Hobby Farm where you can enjoy a beautiful tent, ducks and chickens, a sweet lab dog and a gentle pony.. If you're looking for additional space, we have other cottages on the property as well ... INTERACTION WITH GUESTS: We live on the property so we're around to make recommendations for swimming, rafting and dining. We get the nightly bonfire going, and keep the common kitchen and bathroom clean, but otherwise leave guests to enjoy themselves on their own. During the day, we’re pretty busy with the mowing, firewood, painting projects and laundry, but it is pleasant to spend some time with our guests to hear about life outside the Adirondacks! OTHER THINGS TO NOTE We have two other rental cottage on our property and have great reviews from previous guests. If you look at my Profile, you'll be able to see our other listings as well as our reviews. We love hosting folks!!!! HISTORY OF CAMPING 'Camping out' is becoming merely a name for moving out of one’s permanent habitation and dwelling for a few weeks in a well-built lodge, smaller than one’s home, but as comfortable and almost as convenient; with tables, chairs and crockery, carpets and curtains, beds with sheets and blankets on real bedsteads, a stove and its full outfit of cooking utensils, wherefrom meals are served in the regular ways of civilization… This misnamed camping out has become a fashion which seems likely to last till the shores are as thronged as the towns, and the woods are spoiled for real campers…." ~ Rowland Evans Robinson, In New England Fields and Woods, 1896 "From my experience and observation, I am thoroughly convinced that camp-life in dry places, and at a reasonable altitude above the water, especially in a pine grove, has a wonderful effect in benefitting and restoring weak lungs." ~ The Adirondacks as a Health Resort, 1886 HOUSE RULES Our guests come here to relax and be quiet; please go along with this. OTHER THINGS TO NOTE: Things to bring: bug dope, something warm for chilly nights, some stories about what's happening elsewhere (we're kinda buried in the country up here!) and some newspapers for starting fires (we're always short). Things NOT to bring: water bottles. Our well is 800 feet deep and has clear wonderful water to drink. WHAT IS GLAMPING? “Glamping” --- a combination of glamorous and camping --- has recently become popular with vacation travelers and outdoor enthusiasts who want to be outside in a beautiful natural environment without the hassle of pitching a tent or sleeping on the ground. The idea of roughing it during a camping trip might sound appealing to many vacationers if it weren't for having to consider, gather, purchase, pack and then carry in everything you need to go camping. That is where “glamping” comes in --- it’s an already set-up tent with a beautiful bed, a nearby hot shower and fairy lights. The trend is growing in popularity --- starting in Europe --- now here in the United State: glamorous camping, otherwise known as glamping. When “glamping”, there’s no tent to pitch and no sleeping bag to unroll. Instead, visitors arrive to find a beautiful canvas tent set up on a wooden platform, a bed made up with nice linens, a beautiful nearby bathroom nearby and a blazing fire with Adirondack lawn chairs around it. Add gorgeous views of Gore Mountain, a scenic Hobby Farm with its scenic gardens and a few gentle farm animals set amoungst acres of Adirondack wildflowers, and it’s a slice of heaven. THE NEIGHBORHOOD We own 50 acres of land so it’s very private and quiet, and safe! We have open meadows to walk, woods to explore and even the road we’re on is wonderful for walking; you’ll pass by some wonderful old cemeteries and farmhouses. GETTTING AROUND Many of our guests come from NYC and struggle with the whole car rental thing and the hassle of driving. So here’s a way to make it easier for you to get here … (and to build up our glamping business): Take the Amtrak train from Penn Station on Friday morning at 8:15 and arrive at 12:30 in Fort Edward/Glens Falls where we will pick you up in a Lincoln Continental (okay, it’s 15 years old but low mileage and a wonderful gift from my father) and within an hour, you’ll be glamping! On Sunday, we’ll bring you back to catch a 5:45 train, getting you all relaxed and back in the city by 9:45. Round trip train tickets are $63 per person. For another $63 each way, we’ll get your group back and forth to the local train station. Our car fits four people plus the driver (me!) And while you’re here, feel free to borrow our little Oldsmobile car to get to town, the lake, out to eat and such! No charge … And if you don’t drive, we’re happy to do some grocery shopping for you, drop you off rafting or at the lake, and such…. So get out of that hot city and come enjoy the cool mountain breezes! Note: We use the Friday train as an example but are happy to help you with your schedule.

A caretaker is available minutes down the road to take care of any last minute issues, and his contact information is clearly posted in the house. OTHER THINGS TO NOTE: ---------------------------------------------- Parts of the house are a 100-year-old converted schoolhouse for the miners at then Hooper Mine (Garnet Hill mines are down the road). The house across the road is where the supervisor used to live. Garnets can still be found among the boulders in the surrounding area hikes.

There are signs in the house with relevant information on rules for the area. Please no pets and smoking (allergies!). Leave the house "broom clean." Although we will make every effort to make sure that items such as dishwashing liquid, sponges, paper towels & napkins, garbage bags, toilet paper, coffee filters, etc. will be enough when you arrive, we cannot guarantee the presence of every item in sufficient quantities for your stay. If you have forgotten to bring linens, we can provide them for an additional charge of $50, due to the cost of doing laundry in a remote area. Please call or email and we will make arrangements. Please do not use items in the closet marked "Private." THE NEIGHBORHOOD ------------------------------------------------------ Why I think you will enjoy staying in Garnet Hill: The house is right at the trailhead for both the Garnet Hill Mountain Biking trails and the DEC Siamese Wilderness Ponds hiking trails.

In the nearby barn/lodge, there is also a lovely new bathroom with an old-fashion claw foot tub where you can enjoy a deep bath with lavender salts. We provide nice towels and soap. There is a clothesline outside where we hang the sheets to dry so they get a fresh mountain smell (I’m in love with my clothesline and enjoy hanging the linens out to dry in the wind). In the barn, there is a large country kitchen with individual refrigerators for each tent as well as several sinks, a stove, microwave, toaster, utensils, cutting boards, glasses and the basics for putting together a nice meal. Outside are several charcoal grills and a gas grill. There are jars of granola, cereal, coffee, tea, sugar and such. There are boxes of chocolate, graham crackers, marshmallows and sticks for “smores” making. At dusk, we get the bonfire going so guests can relax in hand-built Adirondack chairs to watch the fire and the stars. There is no “light pollution” so it is an amazing experience to see thousands of stars, night clouds, moonscapes. We have a flock of free ranging chickens that are very sweet and enjoy handouts of leftover salad, bread and such. They can be picked up easily and are very friendly.

We have two kayaks which we can deliver to the nearby lake for you for a modest fee. Guests are invited to pick from our garden. We like to spen d a few minutes with guests to show them what’s in season and how to harvest. Usually there is salad mixes, herbs, peas until it gets too hot for them and later in the summer, finally, tomatoes! There is a chicken coop where guests can get their own eggs. The ducks lay eggs in various spots under the bushes here and there. We have 40 acres of rolling beautiful property with varying mountain vistas, several ponds, open glorious wildflower meadows, apple orchards, streams and woods. So when folks ask where to go hiking, we suggest they start right here on the property first!

        The SpaceThis cabin is off the grid and so quiet. We never want to leave. Its a unique and alternative experience for those who appreciate the simple and the Sweet. It's comfortable and has everything you will need for a peaceful connection to nature. It does have an outhouse that is fresh, odorless and old world luxurious. There is no toilet in the house but it does have a bathtub with a large window next to it and a proper sink within the cabin. Guest AccessI don't mind sharing the fresh bounty of our organic garden when possible. You can use our 1947 canoe if you are tender upon it. Another old world item. Interaction with GuestsWe will welcome you upon arrival and head back to Vermont. The NeighborhoodI love the quiet neighborhood with Garnet Hill Lodge trails bordering the propriety. Our few neighbors are far enough away to not know they are there. Getting AroundTHE TRAIN FROM NEW YORK CITY COMES TO NORTH CREEK ABOUT FIVE MILES FROM CAMP. IMAGINE LEAVING THE CITY AND ENDING UP IN THE ADK BY TRAIN. Other Things to NoteWe hike and paddle all the time and can give you my best recommendations and there is also plenty of white water for the thrill seekers. OH. there is no cell service at the cabin and no internet. you can access it close by but why bother.

        The SpaceEnjoy fall foliage and stay cozy in this lovely tent! Electric fireplace, heated king water bed, beautiful mountain views and located on the edge of a forest in a wildflower meadow ... this lovely new canvas cabin ... a marvelous “glamping” tent ... is built on a deck and fully furnished. Enjoy a comfortable bed with hand-made feather quilts and pretty antique furniture. In the tent, there are lights, oriental rugs, a sofa and decorations. There is a front deck with Adirondack chairs, and off the back is a private porch with beautiful flowers. We have four glamping tents, Glamp Richard, Glamp Suzanne, Glamp Bernice and Glamp Thomas which are spaciously set apart for privacy yet an easy walk to the Bath House and our renovated barn where there is a common kitchen. Elsewhere on the property we have two cabins, Authentic Adirondack Bird Camp which has two bedrooms, and Delightful Hobby Farm Guest House which has one bedroom. The tents have a “fly” over them so they stay remarkably cool during the day and completely waterproof. At night, zip up the canvas windows and doors, and stay cozy under handmade feather quilts. In September and October, we add an electric heater for extra warmth. The new Bath House has a women’s side with two toilets, a shower and double vanity with glass vessel sinks; ditto for the men’s side. In the nearby barn/lodge, there is also a lovely new bathroom with an old-fashion claw foot tub where you can enjoy a deep bath with lavender salts. We provide nice towels and soap. There is a clothesline outside where we hang the sheets to dry so they get a fresh mountain smell (I’m in love with my clothesline … I wash all the linens in town, then enjoy hanging them out to dry). In the barn, there is a large country kitchen with individual refrigerators for each tent as well as several sinks, a stove, microwave, toaster, utensils, cutting boards, glasses and the basics for putting together a nice meal. Outside are several charcoal grills and a gas grill. There are jars of granola, cereal, coffee, tea, sugar and such. There are boxes of chocolate, graham crackers, marshmallows and sticks for “smores” making. At dusk, we get the bonfire going so guests can relax in hand-built Adirondack chairs to watch the fire and the stars. There is no “light pollution” so it is an amazing experience to see thousands of stars, night clouds, moonscapes. We have a flock of free ranging chickens that are very sweet and enjoy handouts of leftover salad, bread and such. They can be picked up easily and are very friendly. Also there are eight shy sweet ducks that waddle around the property; the ducks greatly enjoy it when there is fresh water run into their little swimming pool they are so joyous when they’re in water. The ducks are sweet but shy away from people (oh no! humans!). Unlike the chickens that wander all day and come back together only to sleep, the ducks are co-dependent and stick together all the time; if one duck is separated, they all quack until they get back together. So yes, country life can be noisy with the chickens cackling and the ducks quacking! We have a gentle old Pony (aptly named PonyBoy) who wanders around the property. He sleeps a lot, flat out in a bed of straw by the chicken coop, or in the grass by the driveway. He also likes to stand right next to our kitchen door outside the window so he can hear the sound of our family and know what’s going on. He likes to bang the screen door open with his nose, or stick his head through the dog door. Sometimes it’s cute; other times it’s just annoying so we shoo him away with a kitchen towel. PonyBoy enjoys carrots, apples, fruit and such; best to toss the food on the ground instead of trying to feed him since he can’t tell the difference between your fingers and a carrot. And of course there is Sammy Dog, a lab/shepherd mix, who bounds around the property, visiting all our guests, laying down on the porch and steps waiting for people to come home. Be careful coming down the driveway because he sometimes leaps unexpectedly in front of cars all goofy and happy. He can come in and even sleep over if you want (just send us a text message so we know where he is). Our two cabins are best set up for visiting dogs, but it’s more difficult to host dogs because it’s easier for them to slip out. Visiting dogs have to be kept on leash unless we can see clearly that your dog has no interest in chasing our chickens or ducks; some dogs could care less about eating the birds and would rather run around with our dog Sammy. We find that small dogs in particular are chicken/duck chasers. It’s not a bad thing, it’s just in their nature! The lake is three miles down the winding road …13th Lake it is called and it is just beautiful. Totally natural and quiet with no sign of civilization on its shores. The Hudson River is at the bottom of our mountain; clear beautiful water; you go tubing or rafting with the various rafting companies located right nearby. The town of North Creek is five miles away off the main Route 28 road but it’s easy to miss so look for the 3 or 4 signs that mark the entrance to “town”. North Creek is a scenic little town with some great restaurants, a grocery store, liquor store, some shopping places and a scenic train called the Saratoga/North Creek Railroad which takes folks in antique train cars along the Hudson River. Gore Mountain Ski Center is off Route 28 in North Creek. Frequently they run the gondola so for about $18 a person, you can take the gondola to the top of the mountain …. Incredible views, beautiful fresh air, a lovely experience. All kinds of hiking at Gore Mountain. Another great experience is nearby Garnet Hill Lodge, an historic lodge offering lunches and dinners … beautiful property, amazing views, great food. It’s located right up the road in North River. They rent mountain bikes and have all kinds of walking trails. So .... Enjoy amazing mountain day views and glorious stargazing by night ... this might be the most special vacation you’ve ever had! Quiet and tranquil … safely and privately located at the edge of our Hobby Farm where you can enjoy a beautiful tent, ducks and chickens, a sweet lab dog and a gentle pony.. If you're looking for additional space, we have other cottages on the property as well ... Guest AccessThe four glamping tents share a beautiful new Bath House which has a women’s bath and a men’s bath, each with showers. Our renovated barn which we call the Lodge has a common country kitchen with individual refrigerators, dishes, utensils, stove and sinks. We have two kayaks which we can deliver to the nearby lake for you for a modest fee. Guests are invited to pick from our garden. We like to spend a few minutes with guests to show them what’s in season and how to harvest. Usually there is salad mixes, herbs, peas until it gets too hot for them and later in the summer, finally, tomatoes! There is a chicken coop where guests can get their own eggs. The ducks lay eggs in various spots under the bushes here and there. We have 40 acres of rolling beautiful property with varying mountain vistas, several ponds, open glorious wildflower meadows, apple orchards, streams and woods. So when folks ask where to go hiking, we suggest they start right here on the property first! Interaction with GuestsWe live on the property so we're around to make recommendations for swimming, rafting and dining. We get the nightly bonfire going, and keep the common kitchen and bathroom clean, but otherwise leave guests to enjoy themselves on their own. During the day, we’re pretty busy with the mowing, firewood, painting projects and laundry, but it is pleasant to spend some time with our guests to hear about life outside the Adirondacks! The NeighborhoodWe own 40 acres of land so it’s very private and quiet, and safe! We have open meadows to walk, woods to explore and even the road we’re on is wonderful for walking; you’ll pass by some wonderful old cemeteries and farmhouses. Getting AroundYou will need a car ... Other Things to NoteWHAT IS GLAMPING? “Glamping” --- a combination of glamorous and camping --- has recently become popular with vacation travelers and outdoor enthusiasts who want to be outside in a beautiful natural environment without the hassle of pitching a tent or sleeping on the ground. The idea of roughing it during a camping trip might sound appealing to many vacationers if it weren't for having to consider, gather, purchase, pack and then carry in everything you need to go camping. That is where “glamping” comes in --- it’s an already set-up tent with a beautiful bed, a nearby hot shower and fairy lights. The trend is growing in popularity --- starting in Europe --- now here in the United State: glamorous camping, otherwise known as glamping. When “glamping”, there’s no tent to pitch and no sleeping bag to unroll. Instead, visitors arrive to find a beautiful canvas tent set up on a wooden platform, a bed made up with nice linens, a nice bathroom nearby and a blazing fire with Adirondack lawn chairs around it. Add gorgeous views of Gore Mountain, a scenic Hobby Farm with its scenic gardens and a few gentle farm animals set amoungst acres of Adirondack wildflowers, and it’s a slice of heaven.

We have open meadows to walk, woods to explore and even the road we're on is wonderful for walking; you'll pass by some wonderful old cemeteries and farmhouses. Getting AroundYou will need a car ... Other Things to NoteWHAT IS GLAMPING? “Glamping" --- a combination of glamorous and camping --- has recently become popular with vacation travelers and outdoor enthusiasts who want to be outside in a beautiful natural environment without the hassle of pitching a tent or sleeping on the ground. The idea of roughing it during a camping trip might sound appealing to many vacationers if it weren't for having to consider, gather, purchase, pack and then carry in everything you need to go camping. That is where “glamping" comes in --- it's an already set-up tent with a beautiful bed, a nearby hot shower and fairy lights. The trend is growing in popularity --- starting in Europe --- now here in the United State: glamorous camping, otherwise known as glamping. When “glamping", there's no tent to pitch and no sleeping bag to unroll. Instead, visitors arrive to find a beautiful canvas tent set up on a wooden platform, a bed made up with nice linens, a nice bathroom nearby and a blazing fire with Adirondack lawn chairs around it. Add gorgeous views of Gore Mountain, a scenic Hobby Farm with its scenic gardens and a few gentle farm animals set amoungst acres of Adirondack wildflowers, and it's a slice of heaven. HISTORY OF CAMPING 'Camping out' is becoming merely a name for moving out of one's permanent habitation and dwelling for a few weeks in a well-built lodge, smaller than one's home, but as comfortable and almost as convenient; with tables, chairs and crockery, carpets and curtains, beds with sheets and blankets on real bedsteads, a stove and its full outfit of cooking utensils, wherefrom meals are served in the regular ways of civilization… This misnamed camping out has become a fashion which seems likely to last till the shores are as thronged as the towns, and the woods are spoiled for real campers…." ~ Rowland Evans Robinson, In New England Fields and Woods, 1896 "From my experience and observation, I am thoroughly convinced that camp-life in dry places, and at a reasonable altitude above the water, especially in a pine grove, has a wonderful effect in benefitting and restoring weak lungs." ~ The Adirondacks as a Health Resort, 1886

              The SpaceThere is a carport that accommodates two compact or one larger vehicle and a mudroom entrance (back door, preferred entry). There is wireless internet and a flat screen TV (no cable) for watching movies (we have a DVD player and a bunch of DVDs at the house). Note that I prefer families and the house is very kid-friendly, complete with toy chest, toddler chairs and outlet covers. I do not accept groups of 7 adults, but 2 small families or two couples would work well. It has worked especially well for a family with parents/grandparents. The house was built in 1903 and functioned as a schoolhouse until around 1944. It fell into disrepair until I purchased it in 1989 and converted it into a residence. It was my full time residence from (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) and is my part time vacation house now. All the main floors are original wood as are nearly all the walls and 13-ft high ceiling. I am an avid gardner so the house is surrounded by perennial beds. There a ceiling fan in each bedroom and two in the living room. Guest AccessThe entire house is available except for a small walk-in closet in the back bedroom and my fiber studio on the second floor. Doors are locked to those two areas. There is a large side yard for playing sports and a screened-in porch for watching. (Be sure to check for deer ticks after spending time outside, especially if you wear sandals and shorts.) Interaction with GuestsI live in VT full time but spend time at the schoolhouse as I have a lot of family in the North River area. I'm available by phone or, if urgent, I have a cousin up the road and a house caretaker in North Creek. The NeighborhoodThe house is on a very walkable dirt road, quiet except for the brook across the road. It is approx 3 miles from 13th Lake and the very hikeable Siamese Pond Wilderness Area. The Hudson River is just down the road, with lots of white river rafting companies in North River. North Creek, 5 miles to the south, offers a historic train station, many restaurants, a grocery store, drug store and other shops. Gore Mountain ski area is also nearby in North Creek. Heading north is Indian Lake and Blue Mountain Lake (and the Adirondack Museum). There is a Weber charcoal grill guests are welcome to use outdoors. Getting AroundThe house is in a very rural area with little public transportation, but there is a train that ends at North Creek and has scenic trips to Saratoga and points south. Other Things to NoteThere are important instructions for using the wood stove, which guests must follow. Because of the inefficiency of the fireplace, its used only decoratively.

              The SpaceGorgeous home with fabulous Adirondack architecture. Homes are spaciously set apart for privacy in a wooded setting. This lovely home is completely private with a wrap around porch and deck overlooking the woods and a running brook. Stroll through the woods to a large lean-to facing the brook or take a short walk to pristine 13th Lake via wooded trails. The large dining room and attached kitchen are perfect for entertaining. Plenty of comfy couches and chairs make it easy to relax in front of the wood burning stove or head to the basement playroom for a game of ping pong. The town of North Creek is 5 miles away. It's a scenic little town with some wonderful restaurants, a grocery store, liquor store and some unique shopping. If you want an adventure, hop on the Saratoga/North Creek Railroad for a scenic ride along the Hudson River. Gore Mountain Ski Center is also off Route 28. The gondola runs during the summer so for about $18 a person you can ride to the top of the mountain for the incredible views and the fresh air. There are many hiking trails around the mountain. Another relaxing treat is at nearby Garnet Hill Lodge, an historic lodge offering delicious lunches and dinners. This beautiful property has amazing views . In the summer, they rent mountain bikes and have many walking trails. Enjoy a day trip to nearby Lake George which is south of us, take exit 20 for the outlet malls. To the north is Blue Mountain Lake - check out the Adirondack Museum - and Long Lake, or a little further to Tupper Lake for the Wilderness Center, a great museum for children and adults as well. Interaction with GuestsWe have a local caretaker who will come and take care of whatever you need. Otherwise, enjoy a completely private getaway. The NeighborhoodGarnet Hill is a 4-season vacation community near Gore Mountain Ski Area. Homes are spaciously set apart for privacy in a wooded setting. Getting Around15 minutes to North Creek for shopping and dining. Other Things to Note13th Lake is a short walk or a drive to the beach. You will need a car to take a trip into town. The Adirondack Mountains are a spectacular range in upstate New York that showcases the breathtaking beauty of nature. People come from all over the world to hike these spectacular mountains and yet we are just a short 4 hour trip right up Interstate Route 87 to NYC!

                Enjoy cool breezes and comfortable mountain temperatures! Commanding beautiful mountain views and located on the edge of a forest in a wildflower meadow, this lovely new canvas cabin ... a marvelous “glamping” tent ... is built on a deck and fully furnished. Enjoy a comfortable bed with hand-made feather quilts and pretty antique furniture. In the tent, there are lights, oriental rugs, a sofa and decorations. There is a front deck with Adirondack chairs, and off the back is a private porch with beautiful flowers. We have two glamping tents, Glamp Richard and Glamp Suzanne, which are set about fifty feet apart. Glamp Richard has a king sized water bed, and Glamp Suzanne has two queen beds (very comfortable double high air mattresses). Elsewhere on the property we have two cabins, Authentic Adirondack Bird Camp which has two bedrooms, and Delightful Hobby Farm Guest House which has one bedroom. Nearby is our renovated barn where there is a lovely new bathroom with an old-fashion claw foot tub --- it has a shower but we encourage folks to enjoy a deep bath with lavender salts. We provide nice towels, soap and such; there is a clothesline outside where we hang the sheets to dry so they get a fresh mountain smell (I’m in love with my clothesline … I wash all the linens in town, then enjoy hanging them out to dry). Also in the barn is a kitchenette with sink, microwave, toaster, utensils, cutting boards, glasses and the basics for putting together a simple breakfast, making sandwiches or for grilling over the two charcoal grills just outside the door. We have jars of granola and cereal, coffee, tea, sugar and such. There is a small fridge for each of our two tents where we leave butter, cream, ketchup and yogurt for folks. There is a bonfire with Adirondack chairs around it. We get the fire going at dusk. In the barn are jars of chocolate, graham crackers, marshmellows and sticks so you can make smores. We have a flock of free ranging chickens that are very sweet and enjoy handouts of leftover salad, bread and such. They can be picked up easily and are very friendly. Also there are four nice ducks that waddle around the property. Outside the barn is a toddler’s swimming pool which we fill up with fresh water a couple times a day so that the ducks can bathe and drink; they are so joyous when they’re in water. The ducks are sweet but shy away from people (oh no! humans!). Unlike the chickens that wander all day and come back together only to sleep, the ducks are co-dependent and stick together all the time; if one duck is separated, they all quack until they get back together. So yes, country life can be noisy with the chickens cackling and the ducks quacking! We have a gentle old Pony (aptly named PonyBoy) who wanders around the property. He sleeps a lot, flat out in a bed of straw by the chicken coop, or in the grass by the driveway. He also likes to stand right next to our kitchen door outside the window so he can hear the sound of our family and know what’s going on. He likes to bang the screen door open with his nose, or stick his head through the dog door. Sometimes it’s cute; other times it’s just annoying so we shoo him away with a kitchen towel. PonyBoy enjoys carrots, apples, fruit and such; best to toss the food on the ground instead of trying to feed him since he can’t tell the difference between your fingers and a carrot. And of course there is Sammy Dog, a lab/shepherd mix, who bounds around the property, visiting all our guests, laying down on the porch waiting for people to come home. Be careful coming down the driveway because he sometimes leaps unexpectedly in front of cars all goofy and happy. We have two cabins, and two glamping tents. The cabins are best set up for visiting dogs, but it’s more difficult to host dogs because it’s easier for them to slip out. Visiting dogs have to be kept on leash unless we can see clearly that your dog has no interest in chasing our chickens or ducks; some dogs could care less about eating the birds and would rather run around with our dog Sammy. We find that small dogs in particular are chicken/duck chasers. It’s not a bad thing, it’s just in their nature! In the early evening, we get the central bonfire going for people and then leave folks to enjoy. There’s a stack of dry firewood nearby. If you need help, we can get the charcoal grill started for people as well. There is no “light pollution” so the stargazing is incredible up here. The tents have a “fly” over them so they stay remarkably cool during the day. At night, zip up the canvas windows and doors, and stay cozy under handmade feather quilts. In September and October, we add an electric heater for extra warmth. And yes, the tents are completely waterproof even in a heavy downpour. The lake is three miles down the winding road …13th Lake it is called and it is just beautiful. Totally natural and quiet with no sign of civilization on its shores. The Hudson River is at the bottom of our mountain; clear beautiful water; you go tubing or rafting with the various rafting companies located right nearby. The town of North Creek is five miles away off the main Route 28 road but it’s easy to miss so look for the 3 or 4 signs that mark the entrance to “town”. North Creek is a scenic little town with some great restaurants, a grocery store, liquor store, some shopping places and a scenic train called the Saratoga/North Creek Railroad which takes folks in antique train cars along the Hudson River. Gore Mountain Ski Center is off Route 28 in North Creek. Frequently they run the gondola so for about $18 a person, you can take the gondola to the top of the mountain ….

Quiet and tranquil … safely and privately located at the edge of our Hobby Farm where you can enjoy a beautiful tent, ducks and chickens, a sweet lab dog and a gentle pony.. If you're looking for additional space, we have other cottages on the property as well ... INTERACTION WITH GUESTS: We live on the property so we're around to make recommendations for swimming, rafting and dining.

WHAT IS GLAMPING? “Glamping” --- a combination of glamorous and camping --- has recently become popular with vacation travelers and outdoor enthusiasts who want to be outside in a beautiful natural environment without the hassle of pitching a tent or sleeping on the ground. The idea of roughing it during a camping trip might sound appealing to many vacationers if it weren't for having to consider, gather, purchase, pack and then carry in everything you need to go camping. That is where “glamping” comes in --- it’s an already set-up tent with a beautiful bed, a nearby hot shower and fairy lights. The trend is growing in popularity --- starting in Europe --- now here in the United State: glamorous camping, otherwise known as glamping.

We have open meadows to walk, woods to explore and even the road we’re on is wonderful for walking; you’ll pass by some wonderful old cemeteries and farmhouses. GETTTING AROUND Many of our guests come from NYC and struggle with the whole car rental thing and the hassle of driving. So here’s a way to make it easier for you to get here … (and to build up our glamping business): Take the Amtrak train from Penn Station on Friday morning at 8:15 and arrive at 12:30 in Fort Edward/Glens Falls where we will pick you up in a Lincoln Continental (okay, it’s 15 years old but low mileage and a wonderful gift from my father) and within an hour, you’ll be glamping! On Sunday, we’ll bring you back to catch a 5:45 train, getting you all relaxed and back in the city by 9:45. Round trip train tickets are $63 per person. For another $63 each way, we’ll get your group back and forth to the local train station. Our car fits four people plus the driver (me!) And while you’re here, feel free to borrow our little Oldsmobile car to get to town, the lake, out to eat and such! No charge … And if you don’t drive, we’re happy to do some grocery shopping for you, drop you off rafting or at the lake, and such…. So get out of that hot city and come enjoy the cool mountain breezes! Note: We use the Friday train as an example but are happy to help you with your schedule. Located in the southern Adirondacks near the town of North Creek and a half hour northwest of Lake George ... 47 acres of private beautiful land with views, trails, meadows and woods .. we have three cottages (we live in one and rent the other two) and this year added two glamping tents. There is an historic cemetery next door, a quiet country road for more walking. It is a very safe, quiet country neighborhood with historic farmhouses, open land and nice woods. For dining and shopping, enjoy North Creek which is five miles down the road. Day trips through the Adirondacks take you through amazing scenery, by beautiful lakes, through small country towns. Right in our little town there are 5 rafting companies, a zip line, a garnet jewelry studio, an abandoned garnet mine to tour and a beautiful historic lodge. 13th Lake is just down the road .. pristine, quiet, scenic.

                Starting out as a small barn, this structure evolved into an adorable cottage just steps away from an amazing vegetable garden (yes, please go pick some peas!) The kitchen has a bank of windows soaking in the south facing views of Gore Mountain, a treasured collection of copper pots and pans and an antique milkshake machine. There are reused antique beams, leaded glass reproduction windows from a wrecking yard, a rebuilt Vermont Castings woodstove, art work and Asian artifacts shipped to us when my parents recently downsized. Somehow, it all came together -- the Farmstand seems to have an instantaneous lore, an essential characteristic of camp life. Upstairs is a loft bedroom with queen bed; downstairs is a twin bed off an alcove; and a sofa to snooze on. We have a lively happy lab dog that greets people and free-ranging old pony. Summers are wonderful with cool mountain breezes, nearby lakes and the Hudson River to swim, bathe or fish in.

WHAT IS GLAMPING? “Glamping” --- a combination of glamorous and camping --- has recently become popular with vacation travelers and outdoor enthusiasts who want to be outside in a beautiful natural environment without the hassle of pitching a tent or sleeping on the ground. The idea of roughing it during a camping trip might sound appealing to many vacationers if it weren't for having to consider, gather, purchase, pack and then carry in everything you need to go camping. That is where “glamping” comes in --- it’s an already set-up tent with a beautiful bed, a nearby hot shower and fairy lights. The trend is growing in popularity --- starting in Europe --- now here in the United State: glamorous camping, otherwise known as glamping. When “glamping”, there’s no tent to pitch and no sleeping bag to unroll. Instead, visitors arrive to find a beautiful canvas tent set up on a wooden platform, a bed made up with nice linens, a beautiful nearby bathroom nearby and a blazing fire with Adirondack lawn chairs around it. Add gorgeous views of Gore Mountain, a scenic Hobby Farm with its scenic gardens and a few gentle farm animals set amoungst acres of Adirondack wildflowers, and it’s a slice of heaven. THE NEIGHBORHOOD We own 50 acres of land so it’s very private and quiet, and safe! We have open meadows to walk, woods to explore and even the road we’re on is wonderful for walking; you’ll pass by some wonderful old cemeteries and farmhouses. GETTTING AROUND Many of our guests come from NYC and struggle with the whole car rental thing and the hassle of driving. So here’s a way to make it easier for you to get here … (and to build up our glamping business): Take the Amtrak train from Penn Station on Friday morning at 8:15 and arrive at 12:30 in Fort Edward/Glens Falls where we will pick you up in a Lincoln Continental (okay, it’s 15 years old but low mileage and a wonderful gift from my father) and within an hour, you’ll be glamping! On Sunday, we’ll bring you back to catch a 5:45 train, getting you all relaxed and back in the city by 9:45. Round trip train tickets are $63 per person. For another $63 each way, we’ll get your group back and forth to the local train station. Our car fits four people plus the driver (me!) And while you’re here, feel free to borrow our little Oldsmobile car to get to town, the lake, out to eat and such! No charge … And if you don’t drive, we’re happy to do some grocery shopping for you, drop you off rafting or at the lake, and such…. So get out of that hot city and come enjoy the cool mountain breezes! Note: We use the Friday train as an example but are happy to help you with your schedule.

                Enjoy cool breezes and comfortable mountain temperatures! Commanding beautiful mountain views and located on the edge of a forest in a wildflower meadow, this lovely new canvas cabin ... a marvelous “glamping” tent ... is built on a deck and fully furnished. Enjoy a comfortable bed with hand-made feather quilts and pretty antique furniture. In the tent, there are lights, oriental rugs, a sofa and decorations. There is a front deck with Adirondack chairs, and off the back is a private porch with beautiful flowers. We have two glamping tents, Glamp Richard and Glamp Suzanne, which are set about fifty feet apart. Glamp Richard has a king sized water bed, and Glamp Suzanne has two queen beds (very comfortable double high air mattresses). Elsewhere on the property we have two cabins, Authentic Adirondack Bird Camp which has two bedrooms, and Delightful Hobby Farm Guest House which has one bedroom. Nearby is our renovated barn where there is a lovely new bathroom with an old-fashion claw foot tub --- it has a shower but we encourage folks to enjoy a deep bath with lavender salts. We provide nice towels, soap and such; there is a clothesline outside where we hang the sheets to dry so they get a fresh mountain smell (I’m in love with my clothesline … I wash all the linens in town, then enjoy hanging them out to dry). Also in the barn is a kitchenette with sink, microwave, toaster, utensils, cutting boards, glasses and the basics for putting together a simple breakfast, making sandwiches or for grilling over the two charcoal grills just outside the door. We have jars of granola and cereal, coffee, tea, sugar and such. There is a small fridge for each of our two tents where we leave butter, cream, ketchup and yogurt for folks. There is a bonfire with Adirondack chairs around it. We get the fire going at dusk. In the barn are jars of chocolate, graham crackers, marshmellows and sticks so you can make smores. We have a flock of free ranging chickens that are very sweet and enjoy handouts of leftover salad, bread and such. They can be picked up easily and are very friendly. Also there are four nice ducks that waddle around the property. Outside the barn is a toddler’s swimming pool which we fill up with fresh water a couple times a day so that the ducks can bathe and drink; they are so joyous when they’re in water. The ducks are sweet but shy away from people (oh no! humans!). Unlike the chickens that wander all day and come back together only to sleep, the ducks are co-dependent and stick together all the time; if one duck is separated, they all quack until they get back together. So yes, country life can be noisy with the chickens cackling and the ducks quacking! We have a gentle old Pony (aptly named PonyBoy) who wanders around the property. He sleeps a lot, flat out in a bed of straw by the chicken coop, or in the grass by the driveway. He also likes to stand right next to our kitchen door outside the window so he can hear the sound of our family and know what’s going on. He likes to bang the screen door open with his nose, or stick his head through the dog door. Sometimes it’s cute; other times it’s just annoying so we shoo him away with a kitchen towel. PonyBoy enjoys carrots, apples, fruit and such; best to toss the food on the ground instead of trying to feed him since he can’t tell the difference between your fingers and a carrot. And of course there is Sammy Dog, a lab/shepherd mix, who bounds around the property, visiting all our guests, laying down on the porch waiting for people to come home. Be careful coming down the driveway because he sometimes leaps unexpectedly in front of cars all goofy and happy. We have two cabins, and two glamping tents. The cabins are best set up for visiting dogs, but it’s more difficult to host dogs because it’s easier for them to slip out. Visiting dogs have to be kept on leash unless we can see clearly that your dog has no interest in chasing our chickens or ducks; some dogs could care less about eating the birds and would rather run around with our dog Sammy. We find that small dogs in particular are chicken/duck chasers. It’s not a bad thing, it’s just in their nature! In the early evening, we get the central bonfire going for people and then leave folks to enjoy. There’s a stack of dry firewood nearby. If you need help, we can get the charcoal grill started for people as well. There is no “light pollution” so the stargazing is incredible up here. The tents have a “fly” over them so they stay remarkably cool during the day. At night, zip up the canvas windows and doors, and stay cozy under handmade feather quilts. In September and October, we add an electric heater for extra warmth. And yes, the tents are completely waterproof even in a heavy downpour. The lake is three miles down the winding road …13th Lake it is called and it is just beautiful. Totally natural and quiet with no sign of civilization on its shores. The Hudson River is at the bottom of our mountain; clear beautiful water; you go tubing or rafting with the various rafting companies located right nearby. The town of North Creek is five miles away off the main Route 28 road but it’s easy to miss so look for the 3 or 4 signs that mark the entrance to “town”. North Creek is a scenic little town with some great restaurants, a grocery store, liquor store, some shopping places and a scenic train called the Saratoga/North Creek Railroad which takes folks in antique train cars along the Hudson River. Gore Mountain Ski Center is off Route 28 in North Creek. Frequently they run the gondola so for about $18 a person, you can take the gondola to the top of the mountain …. Incredible views, beautiful fresh air, a lovely experience. All kinds of hiking at Gore Mountain. Another great experience is nearby Garnet Hill Lodge, an historic lodge offering lunches and dinners … beautiful property, amazing views, great food. It’s located right up the road in North River. They rent mountain bikes and have all kinds of walking trails. So … Enjoy amazing mountain day views and glorious stargazing by night ... this might be the most special vacation you’ve ever had! Quiet and tranquil … safely and privately located at the edge of our Hobby Farm where you can enjoy a beautiful tent, ducks and chickens, a sweet lab dog and a gentle pony.. If you're looking for additional space, we have other cottages on the property as well ... INTERACTION WITH GUESTS: We live on the property so we're around to make recommendations for swimming, rafting and dining. We get the nightly bonfire going, and keep the common kitchen and bathroom clean, but otherwise leave guests to enjoy themselves on their own. During the day, we’re pretty busy with the mowing, firewood, painting projects and laundry, but it is pleasant to spend some time with our guests to hear about life outside the Adirondacks! OTHER THINGS TO NOTE We have two other rental cottage on our property and have great reviews from previous guests. If you look at my Profile, you'll be able to see our other listings as well as our reviews. We love hosting folks!!!! HISTORY OF CAMPING 'Camping out' is becoming merely a name for moving out of one’s permanent habitation and dwelling for a few weeks in a well-built lodge, smaller than one’s home, but as comfortable and almost as convenient; with tables, chairs and crockery, carpets and curtains, beds with sheets and blankets on real bedsteads, a stove and its full outfit of cooking utensils, wherefrom meals are served in the regular ways of civilization… This misnamed camping out has become a fashion which seems likely to last till the shores are as thronged as the towns, and the woods are spoiled for real campers…." ~ Rowland Evans Robinson, In New England Fields and Woods, 1896 "From my experience and observation, I am thoroughly convinced that camp-life in dry places, and at a reasonable altitude above the water, especially in a pine grove, has a wonderful effect in benefitting and restoring weak lungs." ~ The Adirondacks as a Health Resort, 1886 HOUSE RULES Our guests come here to relax and be quiet; please go along with this. OTHER THINGS TO NOTE: Things to bring: bug dope, something warm for chilly nights, some stories about what's happening elsewhere (we're kinda buried in the country up here!) and some newspapers for starting fires (we're always short).

This may mean you may have to wait as much as several hours for an issue to be resolved, as there is no one personally on hand. A caretaker is available minutes down the road to take care of any last minute issues, and his contact information is clearly posted in the house. OTHER THINGS TO NOTE: ---------------------------------------------- Parts of the house are a 100-year-old converted schoolhouse for the miners at then Hooper Mine (Garnet Hill mines are down the road). The house across the road is where the supervisor used to live. Garnets can still be found among the boulders in the surrounding area hikes. NOT INCLUDED IN THE RENTAL PRICE: ------------------------------------------------------------ * Linens (Sheets, towels, kitchen towels) * Canoe: $60 for the length of your stay, and includes the paddles and lifejackets. An attendant at the beach will help you lakeside. Arrangements are made through me. The Garnet Lodge will only rent canoes and kayaks to their own guests. * Computer: There is WIFI; you must bring your own device. ------------------------------------------------------------ NOTE: The house is in the country. You may, on occasion, run into the following pests: mice, chipmunks, black flies, houseflies and spiders in and around the house. HOUSE RULES ------------------------------------------------------------ Noise travels far in the mountains, and the area is a small community of homeowners that have vacationed there for generations. There are signs in the house with relevant information on rules for the area. Please no pets and smoking (allergies!). Leave the house "broom clean." Although we will make every effort to make sure that items such as dishwashing liquid, sponges, paper towels & napkins, garbage bags, toilet paper, coffee filters, etc. will be enough when you arrive, we cannot guarantee the presence of every item in sufficient quantities for your stay. If you have forgotten to bring linens, we can provide them for an additional charge of $50, due to the cost of doing laundry in a remote area. Please call or email and we will make arrangements. Please do not use items in the closet marked "Private." THE NEIGHBORHOOD ------------------------------------------------------ Why I think you will enjoy staying in Garnet Hill: The house is right at the trailhead for both the Garnet Hill Mountain Biking trails and the DEC Siamese Wilderness Ponds hiking trails. The house is surrounded by woods, yet a 5 minute walk, 1 minute drive to pristine 13th Lake with access to the private beach and boat launch. You could also hike or drive the same distance to the Garnet Hill Lodge and have dinner and drinks overlooking the mountain view. GETTING HERE ---------------------------------------------------- It is possible to take a train as far as North Creek. Greyhound bus service will take you as far as Warrensburg. From there, however, you would need a car.
