Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday farmhouse in Johnsburg - Gore Farmhouse

Renovated 1840's Farmhouse. Minutes from base-lodge, relaxing, stress-free

The perfect location puts winter fun right outside your door. Ideal for an easy family getaway, this 1840's farmhouse has been completely modernized to make your vacation as stress-free as possible.

Gore’s lodges are minutes away. We are located 5 tenths of a mile from peaceful valley road. Another tenth of a mile and you’re at the ski bowl. Great for night skiing, tubing and one of the best spots to start your day on gore's 4 mountains. There is also a ticket center at this lodge.

If you prefer cross-country skiing cunnigham's ski barn, with their 20+k of groomed trails through adk forests is just two doors down. There are also trails for snowshoeing and skiing right out the back door.

Our’s is a kitchen you can cook in. After traveling with a family we know what its like to walk into a home that has three forks, one knife and two spoons (true story!) well equipped it includes an electric tea kettle for cocoa and tea, toaster oven, crock-pot, and both a regular and a keurig coffee maker. Plenty of dishes, silverware, pots, pans and knives makes preparing meals a snap. Ample cupboards and a large fridge offer plenty of food storage. Paper and cleaning products are provided as well.

The first floor has a large entrance area to stash your gear, a sitting room with a pull out couch, a family room/dining room and the kitchen.

The second floor has a master-suite with a king size bed and a full bath. Also on the second floor are a large bedroom with a queen size bed and a room with a twin bed and a twin-over-full bunk. These other bedrooms share a full bath. The rooms are large and would allow one or two more little people to sleep on an air mattress. Please inquire if your group is larger.

For a relaxing evening back home enjoy the warmth of the gas wood-stove as your family spends time together. With lots of board games, puzzles, blu-ray player and a 40" hdtv, everyone should be busy. Netflix, hulu+ and wi-fi are all included with your rental free of charge.

North creek: 1 mile north is the village of north creek. Quaint shops, restaurants and pubs await you. Tops supermarket is in the center of town if you've forgotten any essential ingredients , or just need some more coffee. 1/2 mile in the other direction is basil and wicks bar and restaurant and a Stewart's shop to grab some great ice cream.

About Aex Thomson

We are a skiing family of 5 that wanted to spend more time skiing a bigger mountain. We chose Gore because it's the closest big mountain to our Western New York home. We also wanted to enjoy the beauty and adventures the Adirondack Mountains have to offer in the summer as well.

Why Aex Thomson chose Adirondacks

We don't think we could have stumbled on a better property for the area. So, so, so, close to both lodges (sometimes we even come home for lunch and head back out) and the ability for a shuttle drop off at our driveway makes it perfect for our family. Miles of trails out the back door for hiking, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing is a huge bonus. When we timed the trip from Minerva lake beach to the driveway at 10 minutes we were sold. We have loved it ever since and have been delighted with the expansions and improvements at Gore.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Ski gear takes up a lot of space. Our goal is a ski place where 2 families can feel comfortable and have it stocked so all you need to pack is your gear, clothes and maybe some food. Everything else is here! Trails out the back, gas woodstove, comfy furniture, and a full and well appointed kitchen makes for a great winter getaway. If someone gets tired they can take the business shuttle back to the house. The town is just down the road for restaurants, cafes and nightlife. Great place to chill in the summer and so close to so many activities; to many to list here!



In the heart of adk mountain adventure!
