The Severance House is an Adirondack masterpiece. Its close proximity to Gore Mountain Ski Area, Garnet Hill Cross Country Ski Area, Loon Lake, Lake George, and the Hudson River make it a perfect year round getaway for outdoor enthusiasts.
The open floor plan of the Severance House is unusual for a farm house. This open space connects the living room with its large stone fireplace, kitchen and dining area creating a warm and inviting atmosphere. The family room, adjacent to the kitchen, offers a second living area separate from the living room and is complete with another fireplace, bar and widescreen TV. Four bedrooms (queen bed, king bed, one twin bed and one bunk bed sleeps two people) and an oversized bathroom are located on the second floor. The second full bath is located adjacent to the family room and offers a shower and jacuzzi tub). There is a queen size leather pullout sofa with a high density memory foam mattress in the living room and a brand new queen size pull out sofa (upgraded mattress) in the family room. A favorite recent addition to the Severance house is the outdoor hot tub, a welcome respite after a long day on the slopes or hiking. Another favorite place to relax is in front of the recently re-pointed outdoor stone fireplace, perfect for star gazing!
Guests will have access to our entire home (over 1800 square feet) as well as almost 100 acres behind our house. Hiking, sledding and snow shoeing can be done by simply walking out the back door. Need something requiring less energy? Walk out the back door & build a fire in our authentic Adirondack fireplace or relax in our outdoor, but covered, 6 person hot tub.
I interact with my guests whenever necessary, I am always available by phone, text or email. I am rarely on the property when our guests arrive. We have a keyless entry on our front door. I will send the code a few days before check in.
Our house is more a home than just a rental. We have many of our personal affects throughout the house to create a warm and inviting space. We expect our guests to treat our home as if it were their own. We allow a well behaved, pre-approved dog under the condition the dog is never left alone in the house unless crated and not allow on any of the furniture. There is an additional fee when a guest requests to bring a pet. More than one dog may be an option, depending on the temperament, size, age, breed etc if the dogs. There is absolutely no smoking allowed in our home or near the doorways. There will be a charge for any guest who smokes inside our home.
We expect our guests to treat our home with respect and care. We do not allow smoking in or near our home. Tobacco products must be disposed of appropriately.
