The North River Hobby Farm offers a unique collection of Adirondack vacation cabins and glamping tents – each with gorgeous mountain views, privacy and hand crafted architecture detailing.
We are a small family-owned hobby farm with free ranging chickens, sweet ducklings, herb gardens and apple trees which were planted one hundred years ago by my great-grandfather. We have a good-natured lab dog Sammy who loves to greet guests. There are wild turkeys in the fields and flocks of deer.
Our land stretches over forty acres across and down the mountain --- there are panoramic mountain views, open wildflower meadows blowing in the breeze, beautiful old dark forests with streams and a spring fed pond.
Many local adventures await you --- white water rafting in the Hudson River below, a pristine nearby lake known as 13th Lake, many amazing hiking trails both on and nearby our property. The town of North Creek is five miles away where you’ll find excellent restaurants and shopping, and Lake George is just half hour south. Or perhaps you’d just like to sit by the fire and relax.
Most nights we offer wood fired pizza gatherings. Guests bring toppings and we help them cook their own pizza in our super hot stone veneered oven.
This year we have a wonderful new amenity to offer our guests --- an all natural cedar hot tub built on one of the most beautiful spots on our land in a Japanese post and beam temple. Peaceful and quiet with beautiful mountain views… and hot bubbling water to soothe your muscles …
So make some time to come and stay with us at the North River Hobby Farm!
Through lucky circumstances and financial help from my family, I own a precious 40 acres atop a mountain in the Adirondacks with a small cluster of buildings including my great-grandparents’ century-old Bird Camp, four glamping tents and three new cabins I have built in the last few years.
From early spring until the leaves change color in the fall, 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 grandparents and great-parents 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.
As a carpenter/designer/builder, I have had great joy over my lifespan to restore the original cabins, and then to be able to go on to build unique new cabins, outbuildings and a lodge. I’ve had the joy of furnishing the spaces and greatly enjoy maintaining them. I would not have been able to get this far without a wonderful father and brother, and I am very grateful for their support and love.
