About Ralph Kimbrell

Hi, my name is Ralph I am a graduate of the NYS Ranger School, I love the Adirondack Mountains, Forest, and waters.There is somthing magical about the woods, the aroma of pines, the fresh air, the sound of the wind through the forest, the sound of a mountain river. I own and operate Mountain River Properties, and build, sell or lease Cabins in the woods, and sell land also. Come on up and enjoy the pristine setting that the Independence River Cabin offers.

I am also a singer/ songwriter/guitar player and have an album and 2 singles released (on I-tunes and other sites), mostly christian contemporary music. My favorite place to play guitar is with friends around a camp fire.

LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION!!

  • 4 of 5

Ralph has found the perfect spot to "Get away" from it all! Beautiful cabin and property. The sound of the river is worth the long drive. Cabin was spotless and well organized. We even stayed an extra day (in the rain), because we did not want to go back home yet. The only reason I gave this cabin 4 out of 5 stars is that the upstairs beds were too noisy (you can hear when someone moves in bed) and we decided to stay in the downstairs bedroom, which the bed was more comfortable anyway. We usually do not go back to the same vacation spots, because we like to find new places to visit, but we would definitely come back here!!

Thanks Ralph for a wonderful stay!!

Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd visit this year to the cabin! It is so beautiful and peaceful. The cabin is super clean, comfortable and has everything you need. Walmart is a short drive away if you forget anything. Very private and secluded, deep in the woods. Fall asleep to the sounds of the river. Love this cabin so much! Can't wait to visit again!

The "Adirondacks"

The Adirondack Park covers some 6.1 million acres, a land area roughly the size of Vermont and greater than the National Parks of Yellowstone, Grand Canyon, Glacier and Great Smoky Mountains combined. The Adirondack Park is a publicly protected area encompassing much of the northeastern portion of Upstate New York. It is the largest state protected area in the contiguous United States, and the largest National Historic Landmark.

Located on the Otter Creek horse trail system ,includes 65 miles of horse trails located on Independence River and Otter Creek State Forest. Located within the Adirondack park.These trails on the state forest are also great hiking trails and cross country ski trails. Trails wind through wooded areas along Adirondack ponds, gently flowing waters like otter, little otter, beaver meadow, chase and crooked creeks, and the independence river and Gleasmans Falls.The Otter Creek State Forest horse stables are 2.5 mies away, and close to many private horse back riding stables.
