Across a lupine-filled mountainside meadow rests The Warren House, a five-bedroom, 3,683 square-foot home that provides additional room for those with large families or lots of friends. Smaller in stature, but equal in luxury, Warren House, once a historic inn, is now a fully modernized haven of classic Adirondack warmth, charm, and charisma. As in the main house, the style and décor mimic the surroundings, giving the feeling of bringing the outdoors in. Dramatic views of the northern wild are abundant and accessible with wide balconies that overlook the rugged serenity of the neighboring Hoffman Wilderness and the property’s private 15-acre Warren Pond.
A century ago tourists traveled by train and stagecoach from far and wide to stay here. Originally the Baily Pond Inn, this house and surrounding property were once enjoyed by visitors seeking to get away from it all and take advantage of the hunting, fishing, hiking, grand vistas, and peaceful seclusion of the Adirondacks. Century old advertisements boast a “pond with boats 200 yards from the house,” and “five other ponds from one to two miles away.” The property offered beauty, solitude, and “pure mountain air” to visitors from all over the northeast.
Not much about the property itself has changed over the course of the last century. The Bailey Inn became The Warren Inn, and eventually The Warren House or Warren’s in the Adirondacks. The private, trout-stocked Warren Pond still sits a mere 200 yards from the historic home. The property still borders the state-owned Hoffman Wilderness Trail, and beyond it, the rest of the 6 million acre Adirondack Park remains “forever wild.” It is still a place for unadulterated private immersion in nature’s beauty.
While the surrounding wilderness remains untainted by modern hands, the house itself has been fully renovated and modernized. Careful to maintain the original character and appeal, the current owners meticulously refurbished The Warren House in the year 2000, marrying luxury and convenience with the historical and natural beauty of the original home. The great room towers over two stories and is characterized by its openness. A large, floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace churns out plenty of heat and casts a flickering glow that radiates outward to all corners of the room, keeping the large open space warm and welcoming even in the coldest of winters.
With five bedrooms, two and a half baths, dining room, sitting room, family room, and country kitchen, this historic home offers your guests all the amenities and privacy they could ever need.
