About the property

4 bedroom, 2 baths less than 5 minutes from Gore Mountain

The Severance House is approximately two miles from the entrance to Gore Mountain Ski Area and less than 30 minutes from many of the resorts, beaches and town of Lake George. This historic Adirondack home sits on 95 acres of woodlands and open fields. The Severance House offers easy access to hiking, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing by simply stepping out the back door. Additionally, the location of the Severance House provides convenient access to endless recreational opportunities (hiking, skiing, biking, swimming, rafting, canoeing, kayaking, motor boating, etc) within the Southern Adirondacks.

There are four bedrooms in the Severance House, all of which are located on the second floor. Each bedroom has been carefully arranged to provide the comforts of home with plenty of drawer and closet space. Bedroom one has an antique iron bed that will accommodate one person. Bedroom two has a king size bed, bedroom three has a queen size bed, and bedroom four has a new set of bunk beds that the kids will surely love! The new leather queen sofa sleeper, with a new high density upgraded mattress, in the living room will provide additional sleeping accommodations. As well, we have just purchased a new queen sofa sleeper for the family room, with an upgraded mattress, that can serve as another bedroom, conveniently located next to the downstairs bathroom.

There are two full baths in the Severance, one is on the second floor and the other is on the first floor adjacent to the family room. The over sized second floor bathroom has a tub-shower, marble accents and a tile floor. The bathroom on the first floor has a tiled shower and Jacuzzi jetted whirlpool tub- ideal after a long day on the slopes!

The living room is an Adirondack masterpiece. The stone fireplace found in this room is eight feet in width and is bordered by two 24-foot beams that run the length of the living room. The room is furnished with a TV, VCR, DVD player, and a stereo system that includes an AM/FM radio, cassette recorder, and CD player. This room will surely provide a warm and cozy atmosphere on those chilly Adirondack winter evenings.

There is an open feel to this home as you walk from the living room to the dining room and on to the classic knotty pine kitchen. Guests can easily enjoy a family meal at the large oak dining room table (seats 10 comfortably) or simply pull up a stool to the island bar that sits between the dining room and kitchen. The kitchen has a gas stove top and is well stocked with many cooking pans, dishes, glassware, and utensils as well as a microwave, toaster oven, crock-pot, cappuccino machine, and coffee grinder.

Off the kitchen is the family room. This is a favorite spot for adults and kids alike. There is a brick fireplace in this room as well as an inviting bar for those apres ski evenings. The room is furnished with a 55 inch flat screen TV, DVD player and board games. The large bay window affords a beautiful view of the surrounding acreage, ideal for sledding and snowshoeing. There are sleds and snowshoes available for use by our guests. As you step out the back door from the family room, you will find an inviting brick patio complete with a gas grill, a large picnic table, and a stone fireplace that is perfect for those cool summer and fall evenings.

The Severance House is a historic home that has been recognized by the North Creek Historic Society. 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 vacation spot. This home is a welcoming retreat for all outdoor enthusiasts and serves as a perfect getaway for those who simply enjoy the quiet and solitude of the Southern Adirondacks.

Why Marta Kolman chose Johnsburg

Easy access to Gore Mountain (less than 5 minutes) and the town of North Creek. Less than 30 minutes to Lake George Village. Set in the heart of the Adirondacks which allows for countless hiking, biking, cross country skiing and snow shoeing opportunities.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Our home sits on almost 100 acres. Hike, snow shoe or ski out the back door. The hill in the back is great for sledding! The 6 person covered out door hot tub is soothing year round. The newly re-pointed stone outdoor fireplace is a favorite place to gather and is perfect for roasting marshmallow for s'mores. The star gazing is awesome due to the lack of any light pollution.

Clean, cozy, comfortable, character filled - WOW!

  • 5 of 5

We ( my husband, youngest son, dog, 2 guinea pigs, and me) spent 5 nights at the Severance House. All around, we had a very pleasant stay.

It's hard to know where to begin in summarizing our time. The house is super clean, and very comfortable...couches, chairs, beds...everything! The kitchen is well stocked, too well stocked! I brought many of my own kitchen tools, only to have to pile them on the counters as the cupboards where full of the house's kitchen tools! It seemed as though we were spending time in a family home that is shared with guests, rather than spending time in a purpose built rental. Nothing in or of the house makes you feel like you are in a feel at home.

As many other reviewers have stated, Marta was very quick to respond to questions that I had. Sometimes I bugged her several times a day! Always quick and courteous response!

We watched TV in the family room and living room, had fires in both rooms, soaked in the hot tub, used the snow shoes, and tobogganed down the hill behind the house. We spent 5 days playing in a winter wonderland and living in a very inviting house. I would recommend a stay at the Severance House to anyone who wants to immerse themselves in the beauty of the Adirondacks!

Cozy and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every room in this beautiful historic home - watching TV in the family room, warming by the large fireplace in the great room, and cooking in the well stocked kitchen. The owner was amazing and kept in touch with us throughout our stay. We are looking forward to coming back for another visit.

Family Farmhouse Treasure!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at this older-style farmhouse! The charm of the large fireplace and living room, and convenience of a kitchen with most all the necessities! (Only thing I was missing was a dish washer, but was SO pleased with everything else- hate to complain! *Bring paper plates and cups if you'd rather not wash dishes* ) ALSO Loved the hot tub after a day of skiing!! Beds very comfy, towels galore, firewood by fireplace, and lights left on for us! Wonderful!! Would def. come again! Many thanks to Marta, who addressed all concerns quickly before we came. Liked the new color of the house too, (Dark red) not yellow as pictured on VRBO. Very close to Gore Mt., which is where we skied.

Gorgeous home! Beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

Marta was an extremely gracious and kind throughout the entire process! It’s a beautiful home and made for an amazing New Years Eve weekend. Lots of space, and so many fun things to do around the area!!

Really hoping to be able to go back and rent this spot again soon. It’s not often you find a great place that is reasonably priced, extremely gorgeous, and with many amenities at the cabin!

Thank you so much!
