About the Owner
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.

It doesn't get any better than thisIt doesn't get any better than this
My wife, daughter, dog, and I spent the week here hiking and relaxing. We opted not to do a lot of sightseeing except for a visit to Tughill Vineyards, which we recommend. Also on the way to Lowville, is Miller's Meat Market. A great place to get smoked pork loin on Monday and ribs on Thursday.
If you decide to hike to Gleasmens Falls, be prepared to encounter many low wet muddy areas. Good waterproof hiking boots are in order.
This is a great place and we have booked for next year.
Serenity on the River
Just What We Needed!
Our old dog Jackson loved roaming around the property also. We sat on the porch and played games, enjoyed wonderful bonfires and grilled every night. What a great retreat... We only wish there was more openings for the rest of the summer to come back! ha! We can see why it books up fast :) We wanted to come home and tell everyone about what a gem it was! We didnt venture much outside of the cabin besides hiking/walks/jogging. We loved how secluded it was. the River was so loud we compared it to hearing the Niagara Falls!
Thank you for sharing your home with us!
Tip-- bring stronger than usual bug spray/repellant if you plan on taking on the deeper trails! (around the cabin was fine with just "OFF").
