Located on our most private lot, Camp Finale offers breathtaking mountain views and a beautiful wildflower meadow which spills below to the woods. Accessed off a long driveway at the end of our little country road, the cabin offers privacy and tranquility. Queen bed, sweet new bathroom with shower, kitchen with range and compact fridge and a private firepit.

Eignin
Our all natural cedar hot tub is available for private booking experience for $25. It is located a five minute walk from the cabin in a Japanese style temple on top of a hill overlooking the mountains. It is only used by our guests, not the general public.

The cabin is located on a 40 acre family compound where we have four glamping tents and seven cabins with plenty of privacy between each.

There is a queen bed with duvet covers and beautiful south facing views of the mountains. Vintage oriental rugs, beautiful drapes and antique lamps. There is a cozy bay window where one could read, or sleep. The bay window which overlooks a canopy of trees behind the cabin and has a single bed mattress for comfortable sleeping.

The bathroom has a nice shower and vanity. There is plenty of hot water, towels, soap, shampoo and conditioner for your use.

The kitchen is fully stocked with a stove, an undercounter fridge, toaster, coffee making things and of course a sink. There are good pans to cook with, plates, glasses and silverware.

There is a fire pit with chairs. Stargazing at night is amazing as there is no light pollution.


We welcome your well-behaved dog as long as he or she stays OFF the furniture and isn't left alone in the cabin while you are out unless crated.

Summers are wonderful with cool mountain breezes, nearby lakes and the Hudson River to swim, bathe or fish in. Fall is glorious with all the trees turning color.

Enjoy a hot tub experience! Built within a beautiful Japanese temple-like structure on one of the most beautiful spots of our land (a very short walk from this cabin), our all natural no-chemical hot tub is a delightful way to start your morning, relax after hiking or winding down after dinner. Available for a private experience for $25 for an hour of wonderful relaxation. Let us know if you would like to book!

As for things to do in the area, nearby Garnet Hill Lodge has cross country ski trails and rentals. Gore Mountain is also close, and if you can't get tickets, consider smaller ski places within an hour's drive like West Mountain, Williard Mountain or Oak Mountain.

Enjoy gorgeous scenery and take a day trip to nearby Lake George, Blue Mountain Lake and Lake Placid.

The property is an easy scenic drive up 87 from NYC. If you arrive late, the house will be unlocked and lights on for you.

Two: Absolutely no dogs on our nice furniture and beds.

ARCHITECTURAL NOTES: The cabin was designed and hand crafted by its hostess/owner Leslie. A small crew framed the house in November and Leslie had a lovely winter doing all the inside carpentry and painting during the winter.

A great deal of thought and energy went into planning this cabin. Like a tree grabbing a roothold in the slope, reaching down for water and minerals and arching up toward the available sunlight, a house must begin and grow from its site. When the design of a house has grown out of the uniqueness of the site, it will seem as natural and as integral a part of the whole as trees are a part of the forest. When the house becomes a part of the land, the site can be fully inhabited. The cabin is not set a top the highest point of the land, where it would be fully exposed, but partway down, allowing the woods behind to form privacy and to shelter the house. Gaze out at the wildness of the site from a sheltered spot.

MORE ABOUT THE PROPERTY: Since 1910, my family has owned 8 acres of land on the upper part of the land. When my great-grandparents built the original camp (Bird Camp), there were gorgeous views looking all the way down to the Hudson River. Then when people stopped owning grazing animals, and as it then became expensive to keep the meadows mowed, the trees grew up and the views were all lost.

When 32 acres of land below us became available several years ago, with financial help from my brother, I purchased the land and over several winters, I had the property strategically logged to open up again the beautiful south and east facing views of Gore Mountain, Moxham Mountain and the Hudson River below.

Originally I intended to return to my former business life I'd led downstate and to build vacation homes for sale. As things have worked out, my plan now is to build simple beautiful rental cabins and retain the property for retirement income, and so that I might leave an income producing estate to my daughters.

NORTH RIVER MOUNTAINTOP HOBBY FARM

Our family-owned mountaintop property in North River originated in 1910 when my great-aunt came as a teenager from Port Washington, Long Island to the Adirondacks to recover from tuberculosis. Back then, the only known cure for TB was to be outside, in cold winter months on a porch under quilts or walking the meadows in the summer. Fortunately Aunt Edie recovered from TB, and in celebration, my great-grandparents built Bird Camp which is now restored and one of our vacation rental cabins. There are still apple trees in the meadows which were planted one hundred years and ten years ago by my great-grandfather. I treasure the old black and white photos I have of this era.

Sadly, the property went into decline over the decades when the various siblings, cousins and in-laws could not agree on how to maintain the property. It took decades, but I managed to buy out the other owners. Once free with clear title, I began the hands on restoration of the original Bird Camp. Then, thinking that I might scratch out a living as a hobby farm, I built a unique “farmstand” and large gardens, but then pivoted as is sometimes necessary in business (and life) --- I converted the farmstand into a vacation rental (“The Farmstand”) and kept the large gardens where we grow cut flowers, herbs and vegetables for our guests and for sale at farmer’s market.

About 10 years ago, I bought 40 additional acres of beautiful adjoining land below ours (Shields Road) where there were once incredible views of the Hudson River and the mountains beyond. I worked with an excavator to clear the woods for six new sites, creating for each incredible views for which the land was once known.

After some intense approval hassles, I began to design and build small romantic cabins and various outbuildings in what architects call the “new old” style. The construction and design are driven by a desire to pay homage to the original Japanese/Adirondack architectural detailing of the 19th century. As a carpenter and home designer, I have taken great pleasure in this work --- frequently picking up my tools to work alongside the various craftsmen who have helped to these unique cabins and out buildings.

One year’s work was building a Japanese temple with a natural cedar hot tub overlooking Gore Mountain. Another project was a wood fired pizza oven and pavilion. Both amenities are treasured by our visiting guests.

Our land in North River is now developed as far as we wish to go. Hence, we named the last cabin “Camp Finale” to signify the end of what we will build here. Our focus is now on maintaining a restorative and relaxing experience for our guests.

NEW PROJECT --- NORTH CREEK HUDSON RIVER PROPERTY

Five miles down river from our mountainside paradise, we now have another beautiful property directly on the Hudson River in nearby North Creek.

The 14 acre parcel which I purchased in the summer of 2021 included an abandoned 1940’s cottage which not been inhabited for decades. The boarded-up cottage, overlooking the Hudson River which is directly across the country road, was ready to collapse. The rafters and outside walls were bowing, huge pine trees ready to fall on top of it and the interior was in deplorable condition.

For an entire pleasurable year, I worked alongside my group of tradespeople to restore the cottage. Tricky carpentry was involved to shore up and brace the sagging roof rafters, and to bring the outside walls back to plumb. Because of the cottage’s proximity to the Hudson River, the new septic system had to be designed carefully to meet setbacks, and the abutting flood plain elevation had to be dealt with in the permitting process. The interior was gutted and rebuilt in our “new old” style with knotty pine beadboard, antique beams, bright tile work and an antique style bathroom.

Sensing that this could be the place where I may live in retirement (close to town, flatter grades and less challenging in the winter than living atop a mountain), I admittedly went a little overboard during the renovation with extra beautiful detailing inside and out.

(I read this somewhere recently and it describes my building philosophy: “A preferable solution is to maintain all that is good. All that has served us well. Maintain the foundations of the old house and as much of the structure above as is still sound. Root out the rot and treat the wood worms. Repair and replace what is broken but keep as much as possible of what has stood the test of time, what has worked.” This is good advice for old homes and life as well.)

Although virtually everything in the cottage has been replaced (framing, siding, roofing, interior finish, mechanicals), the Hudson River cottage now appears both inside and out as a well-maintained historic cottage instead of a major renovation. This pleases me.

Our Hudson River cottage is named Riverfront Cottage on the Hudson River.


THE PLEASURE I TAKE IN HOSTING IS NOW TWOFOLD … ON THE MOUNTAINSIDE AND BY THE HUDSON RIVER … HOW LUCKY AM I?

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.

On our mountainside property In North River, our guests enjoy having the opportunity to live as I do with my children now, and as my grandparents and 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.

On our riverside property in nearby North Creek, our guests enjoy the beauty of staying right on the Hudson River on a quiet country road where they can slip into the river to bathe or fish or kayak, where they can enjoy a quick walk to the sweet downtown.

To create these amazingly beautiful places, I have invested years of my own labor, energy and design expertise, and I have willingly taken on substantial financial risk and debt. But I would not own these wonderful places if not for my brother Thomas Clement and my late father Richard Clement who made significant financial contributions and gave me great encouragement. I am most grateful for their love and help, and I consider myself a lucky woman indeed.
