Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 3 Sleeps

Dizzying views of the Hudson River! This sweet cabin is modest in scale, and is kept simple and pure so to not detract from the richness of the views and offers a fresh, invigorating sense of “just what is needed, nothing more.” The cabin was designed and hand crafted by its owner during the winter of 2017.

The living room offers incredible views of the Hudson River and the meadow below. There are leaded glass windows in the bay window, a large comfortable vintage sofa and simple decorations.

The bedroom offers a queen bed with duvet covers and beautiful east facing views of the Hudson River. There is an antique vanity with vessel sink, antique oriental rugs and Asian artwork.

The bathroom has a claw foot tub with shower hoop and glass vessel sink. There is plenty of hot water, towels and soap.

The kitchen is fully stocked with stove, fridge, microwave and sink. There are beautiful copper pans to cook with, plates, glasses and silverware.

The rugged primitive siding was harvested from on-site cedar trees, and the knotty pine interior was locally sourced.

A great deal of thought and energy went into planning this cabin. Like a tree grabbing a roothold in the slope, reaching down for water and minerals and arching up toward the available sunlight, a house must begin and grow from its site. When the design of a house has grown out of the uniqueness of the site, it will seem as natural and as integral a part of the whole as trees are a part of the forest. When the house becomes a part of the land, the site can be fully inhabited.

This beautiful cabin is located hundreds of feet above the Hudson River and offers dizzying views and great privacy. The cabin is not set a top the highest point of the land, where it would be fully exposed, but partway down, allowing the woods behind to form privacy and to shelter the house. Gaze out at the wildness of the site from a sheltered spot. Enjoy spectacular views of the Hudson River, a cedar forest and wildflower meadow.

There is a fire pit with Adirondack chairs. We provide dry firewood and kindling for our guests. Stargazing at night is amazing as there is no light pollution.

Summers are wonderful with cool mountain breezes, nearby lakes and the Hudson River to swim, bathe or fish in. Fall is glorious with all the trees turning color.

As for things to do in the area, there is white water rafting in the beautiful clean Hudson River right at the bottom of our hill offered by various kayaking companies, hiking spots galore, a nearby gorgeous completely undeveloped lake called 13th Lake, dining in North Creek or nearby Garnet Hill Lodge and great daytrips to nearby Lake George, Blue Mountain Lake, Lake Placid and such.

This property is located at the end of a quiet country road and abuts forty acres of land owned by your host where we offer glamping tents and two other cabins. Please take a look at these listings and reviews to get a better sense of what we offer.

About Leslie Clement

Through lucky circumstances and financial help from my family, I own a precious 40 acres atop the Adirondack Mountains, which includes a small cluster of buildings including my great-grandparents’ century-old camp which is on the National Register of Historic Homes.

I have the honor to have vacationing guests from all over the world who come and leave with generous notes of thanks for having had the opportunity to live as I do with my children now, and as my grandparents and great-parents once did here. We treasure our farm-like setting reminiscent of an 1800’s farm with pleasant meadows, beautiful mountain views and brilliant star-filled nights, and I am grateful to my family for helping us preserve this special place.

Leslie Clement purchased this house in 2016

Why Leslie Clement chose North River

Since 1910, my family has owned 8 acres of land on the upper part of the land. When my great-grandparents built the original camp (Bird Camp), there were gorgeous views looking all the way down to the Hudson River. Then when people stopped owning grazing animals, and as it then became expensive to keep the meadows mowed, the trees grew up and the views were all lost.

When 32 acres of land below us became available several years ago, with financial help from my brother, I purchased the land and over several winters, I had the property strategically logged to open up again the beautiful south and east facing views of Gore Mountain, Moxon Mountain and the Hudson River below.

Originally I intended to return to my former business life I'd led downstate and to build vacation homes for sale. As things have worked out, my plan now is to build simple beautiful rental cabins and retain the property for retirement income, and so that I might leave an income producing estate to my daughters.

I had an amazing winter of 2016 and 2017 building this camp. By December, the framers had completed the structure, the windows were in and I was able to keep warm with temporary heat all winter as I spent months happily finishing the inside of the "camp."

Now I am approaching completion of this special little house and offering it to folks coming to vacation in the Adirondacks.

I've had more fun building this house than a human being should be allowed!

Forward!

Amazing new cabin with even better views

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was everything we were hoping for and then some! Fully stocked with all necessities. Perfect location with great views of the adks and Hudson River. The only thing we heard all weekend were the animals and water flowing in the creek below the property. Leslie was great to deal with and responds immediately with any questions you may have. They also provide a lengthy list of local things to do, eat, hike around the area. We will return next year, no doubt about it.
