Overview

About the property

Scenic, quiet, spacious, new Adirondack home.

MooseHaven Old Forge is the perfect Adirondack retreat for you and your family. Located one mile from the village of Old Forge, right across the street from the spectacular and scenic Moose River, the location and home features are ideal. Built in 2001, inside you will find 1,600 square feet of spacious, new living areas. Three bedrooms (all with log beds), two baths, full kitchen with island, dining room and large living room overlooking the Moose, and wrap around porch will provide you and your family space to enjoy each other or solitude if desired.

Outside you are minutes away from all the splendor that makes the Adirondacks a magical place. Every morning you can canoe or kayak the Moose; a beautiful, serene, quiet nature sanctuary where you can visit remote sandy beaches, look for loons, otter, woodpeckers, and blue herons. (3 kayaks are available for your use.) You can swim at the sandy beach on Old Forge Pond (w / lifeguard) in town or take a hike up to a remote beach on beautiful Nick's Lake. Walk or bike (bring your own or borrow one of ours!) 1/2 mile to 2 trailheads and hundreds of miles of hiking trails in the Adirondack Park system, leading to places like Nick's, McKeever Lock and Dam, and the famous McCauley Mountain. Or, you may choose to relax and view the scenic Moose River from the front porch while enjoying a good book or cup of coffee.

You will enjoy the cottage, but the greatest feature of MooseHaven is its proximity to everything Adirondack. Enchanted Forest / Water Safari, swimming, great shopping, food, the Arts Center and a magnificent public golf course are less than two miles away. Within 30 minutes you can whitewater raft, climb Bald Mountain, go horseback riding, or tour one of the great Adirondack estates. In an instant you can disconnect from the everyday grind and escape into mountains, the river, or simply enjoy the wonderful village of Old Forge, and beyond. MooseHaven is a quiet, idyllic setting that you will want to return to for years to come.

SPRING AND FALL SPECIALS

Although summers are popular for week long vacations. Spring and Fall are perfect for week or long weekend getaways. Many locals claim May is their favorite month, offering unique opportunities to see the signs of new life, and in September and October, there are few better places in the country to experience the brilliant display of color than in the Adirondacks.

For Golfers, there are two championship courses nearby. Whether you are looking for a relaxing afternoon with your spouse or an intense three to four day golf trip with your friends, MooseHaven is a perfect location for you. We will work with you to secure an ideal golf package.

Kayakers, hikers, and nature enthusiasts call today for special long weekend rates in the Spring and Fall

About Shawn Ritchie

We, Shawn and Donna Ritchie have been vacationing Old Forge for years, before deciding to buy MooseHaven. We love this place and truly enjoy sharing it with you and your family.

Shawn Ritchie purchased this house in 2007

Why Shawn Ritchie chose Old Forge

It is so close to everything, but still feels remote. You can grab coffee, take a quick kayak, and get back to read the paper on the front porch before the family is awake! Hiking, biking, skiing, golfing are all minutes away, but above all, relaxing away from the normal routine of life.

What makes this house unique

One mile from the village, close to trails, Nick's Lake, seconds to the Moose River. Large, comfortable, clean, new house with every amenity. Adirondack decor throughout.

A pure Moose Haven

  • 5 of 5

Very much enjoyed our stay at MooseHaven. It was like a home away from home. So much better than staying in a hotel room. Thanks for sharing your place with us. We truly enjoyed our time there.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely home full of Adirondack charm. Large living room and kitchen and bedrooms provided plenty of space. It was decorated in wonderful Adirondack accents and was clean and comfortable. The kayaks that were available provided wonderful trips up or down the river to neat swimming holes and wildlife. We liked that we were close enough to town to walk or ride a bike but far enough away from the noise. The road that the house is on is a little busier than we thought it would be but really didn't cause any disruption to our stay. The owner was prompt in replies and very friendly to deal with. Thank you again Shawn for a lovely visit!

Great get-away!

  • 5 of 5

MooseHaven is a great get-away! We really enjoyed the quiet property, proximity to the Moose River, and especially, the use of the kayaks. The owners were wonderful to work with, and we also very much enjoyed the gentleman who takes care of the lawn. We would love to return again sometime. :)

A Charming House in the Adirondacks

  • 5 of 5

We stayed three weeks in this wonderful house. My children, grandchildren and friends visited us. It is across the street from the Moose River. Shawn has kyacks, bikes, a kitchen fully stocked with everything you might need to cook, games for kids and adults and a fire pit in the big backyard for toasting marshmallows. The location is close to town that has wonderful restaurants and tennis courts. We are already planning to stay next year!
