Located in the southern Adirondacks 5 miles from Gore Mountain and a half hour from Lake George, our small romantic vacation cabins and glamping tents are scattered over 40 gorgeous acres of wildflowers and woods, each with gorgeous mountain views.
Stay the Night in One of Our Vacation Cabins
The cabin interiors offer graceful old-style detailing such as bay windows, beadboard walls and log beam ceilings, and they are decorated with antique Oriental rugs, handcrafted and restored furniture, and beautiful new beds and linens. Privately sited and surrounded by woods with adjoining wildflower meadows and lawns, each cabin has a fire pit with chairs. The dark skies offer wonderful star gazing while sitting around the fire.
Each of our seven cabins is cozy warm in the winter and cool in the summer with mountain breezes, paddle fans, and cross ventilation. The cabins have fully stocked kitchenettes, clean new bathrooms, and wifi. We are pet friendly.
We also have four lovely glamping tents, fully furnished with beds, lights, and decks. There is a lovely Bath House with men's and women’s sides. Each tent has an individual kitchenette in our Lodge.
Guests rave about our mountaintop Japanese cedar hot tub located on one of the most beautiful spots on our land and a short walk from the cabins. Most nights in the summer at the main compound, we offer wood fired pizza topped with ingredients from our garden, or guests may bring their own toppings.
We have large-cut flower and herb gardens to wander and enjoy. Our flowers and herbs are sold at the local farmers market. We have chickens and ducks which are enjoyable to watch, and a good-natured lab dog Sammy who loves to greet and visit our guests. And this year, we have a sweet new puppy named Bella.

Learn More About Your Hostess, Leslie Clement
The property is family owned since 1910 when my then teenaged great-aunt came to the Adirondacks to recover from tuberculosis. After she recovered, my great-grandparents built Bird Camp which is now restored and one of our seven vacation rental cabins. There are still apple trees in the meadows which were planted 100+ years ago by my great-grandfather.
I moved full time to our property about ten years ago and began to design and build vacation rental cabins. My style is to build “new old” structures which pay homage to the original Japanese/Adirondack architectural detailing of the 19th century. As a carpenter, I frequently work with my tools along with the craftsmen who help me build these unique cabins and outbuildings.
I have the honor to host vacationing guests who come to the Adirondack Mountains from all over the world, and who leave with generous notes of thanks and lovely reviews for having had the opportunity to live as I do with my children now, and as my great-grandparents once did here. We treasure our farm-like setting reminiscent of an 1800's farm with pleasant meadows, beautiful mountain views, and brilliant star-filled nights, and I am grateful to my family for helping us preserve this special place.
