About owner/property manager

Paul & Cairenn Spooner. We live in Ludlow Massachusetts. Cairenn and I were married in 2008. Cairenn had lived in the Adirondacks for 26 years before moving to Massachusetts to be with me. A tough choice for her to make but one I'm glad she did. Cairenn's family goes back several generations in the Big Moose area of the Adirondacks. I fell in love with the beauty and fresh air of this wilderness park while coming up to see Cairenn on weekends and vacations.

owner/property manager purchased this cottage in 2011

Why owner/property manager chose New York

We bought this property as a project to fix and flip. We soon realized there was no fix to this flipper. In 2009 we had the original buildings tore down and removed. In 2011 we purchased a modular home for the site and went about adding the garage and other touches. It was a weekend project that keep us coming back the the Adirondacks weekly. It is a home we feel you will truly like coming to.

What makes this cottage unique

There are several things about this home I like but one one of the most unique features is the clean fresh air. I live in Massachusetts and work in Connecticut. But as soon as I get out of my car in Thurman I notice how fresh and clean the air smells and feels in my lungs. I'm not sure there is any positive effects but I think it can't hurt being out of the polluted air of New England and up here the mountain fresh air.

What a wonderful place. It was like being at home. I walked every morning and night, so peaceful. My daughter and her 5 brides maids came over at 6:30 am and did yoga in the back yard, so beautiful. Would stay there again and again. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home.😀😊

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came over Labor Day weekend with another couple, and this house was perfect. The house was nice, comfortable, and clean. The owner was always available and responsive when I contacted him with questions. The house was about a 15 min drive from lake George. Definitely recommend staying here!

Clean, Quiet and just a short drive to the Lake

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this nice property for 3 nights with my family and can't wait to go back next year! The house was very clean and comfortable. Close to all attractions (10-15 minute drive). Homeowner was very accomodating and easy to work with. We had so much fun at Lake George and wished we had more time to spend there.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review our house. Cairenn and I are so happy you found our place clean and comfortable. We try very hard to make the home exactly like we would want it if we were staying there. You were great tenants as we found the home exactly like we left it before your stay. Thank you again for your review and come back any time.
