About Meg Luckhowec

This is a property that has been in the family for almost 150 years. The origainal building has been replaced by a completely modern house with 5 large cross-ventilated bedrooms, living room, dining room, kitchen and two baths. We have TV, VCR, DVD and internet services. The house has a thoroughbred horse farm on one side and 170 acres of woodland on the other. It is quiet and well off the highway.

Meg Luckhowec purchased this house in 1860

Why Meg Luckhowec chose Adirondacks

Our house is located on the top of a hill overlooking the thoroughbred horses and the mountains in the distance. We have sports facilities for volleyball, badmington, basketball, horseshoes, bocce, ping pong and croquet. The swimming area is a 5-10 minute drive away and has tall trees, a picnic area, a playground, a life guiard and free parking.

What makes this house unique

This is a wonderful place for a family because it is completely private, has lots of things to do right here. However, there are dozens of historical, cultural and entertaining venues within a 30-minute drive. Most of our guests return year after year.
