The space
The Lodge is a brand new construction on an incredible Adirondack River with unique water features. There is truly no other site like this in the Adirondacks, the Lodge sits on 2.6 acres of Old Growth White Pine bordering the Independence River. Please take a moment and view this YouTube video of the lodge and the surrounding sights for the best insights on what to expect: (Link Hidden by AirBnB) ...YouTube search "Independence Falls Lodge" (video posted by Ralph Kimbrell).

Most of our family, friends, and guests are immediately drawn to the riverfront with a nice easy walk along the river shore, enjoying the many diverse sections of the river. In and along the river, you and the entire family can enjoy several falls, natural pools, Islands, rock outcrops, swimming holes, tree bridges and panoramic views from the covered porch. Don't miss out on an opportunity to savor the sights and sounds of the river next to a campfire at our brick fire pit directly overlooking the Independence river. Also, the lodge is located on a private dead-end road providing guests with great privacy.

As you enter the lodge from the main entrance, you walk directly into the Great Room with cathedral ceilings, exposed timbers, custom trim, premium furniture, new appliances, and durable flooring throughout. Your group will enjoy a full kitchen and dining room with custom three-inch thick, natural live edge wood counters and bar tops providing an authentic Adirondack feel. After a long day outside, cozy up to the warm stone fireplace (electric) in the Great Room central to the Lodge's look and feel. Then exit through the large front sliding door to the spacious covered porch with amazing panoramic views of the river and surrounding forest. The porch has natural Hemlock posts and cedar railings from the surrounding area with ample room for the entire group to soak in the views and relax.

The lower walkout level is completely finished with a Great Room, 2 Bedrooms, 1 full Bath and small office space. The two lower-level bedrooms include a custom-built cedar log Twin over Queen bunk in one room, plus a custom-built cedar log queen bed in the other room. Then to top it off, we provide a custom-built log Queen futon in Great Room. In addition to the futon, extra twin-sized beds and/or floor mattresses can be provided in for guests sleeping in the lower level. Our design incorporates several top of the line soundproofing techniques between floors so that all guests can enjoy privacy, peace and quiet when they need it most. Also, from the lower level, you can walk out to a 320 square feet covered patio area with panoramic views. All lower level ceilings will have large exposed & rustic beams designed and finished with a natural Adirondack feel throughout.

This Property is located near the Famous Otter Creek Horse Trails (hiker-friendly). Adjacent to the western edge of the Adirondack Park to the east of Lake Ontario, south of Lowville in Lewis County are two public forest areas managed by the State Department of Environmental Conservation, (the DEC): the Independence River Wild Forest, and the Independence River and Otter Creek State Forest. There are arguably 65 wonderful miles of riding trails through these two adjacent wilderness areas. They are called the Otter Creek Horse Trails. The Otter Creek Horse Trails are a series of old sandy roads and wooded trails that traverse a beautifully diversified region, populated with wildlife. Once off the sandy roads, the trails wind their way along sand flats and through wooded areas, access picturesque glacial ponds, and have climbs that lead to fine river vistas. If you and your horse like water, the trails follow or cross the Independence River and no less than seven smaller waterways: Otter, Little Otter, Beaver Meadow, Chase, Burnt, and Crooked Creeks. All eventually flow into the Black River that continues on north into Lake Ontario. It's truly a beautiful area in any season of the year. Yes, even in winter. We supply guest with a color map of the Otter Creek Horse Trails for you hiking adventure.

This southern Lewis County gem is also near other Large NYS parcels of land. Independence Wild Forest is 76,000 acres forever wild. The Otter Creek State Forest is just 3 miles and is 1200 acres of great fishing and hiking.
