Tiny House in a Landscape

I featured Alex and Mina’s photography a few weeks ago in the Tiny House in a Landscape feature and Mina contacted me to share another location and small abode in a landscape they had discovered on their travels.

This one is called “The Old Ice House” which is located in Upper Jay, near Lake Placid, New York. Mina said they had a wonderful and restful stay at this old ice house.

Come to find out you can stay there too if you choose. This old restored ice house is on AirBnB and you can click here to get all the info.

The Icehouse is surrounded by nearly a thousand acres of privately owned land, and offers miles of completely private hiking trails leading into the forests and up into the mountains that belong to the house.

The historic 19th century property derives its name from its original purpose – it was built to store blocks of ice during the warmer months of the year that were cut in the winter from the ponds. The ice was used to cool the storage rooms of the nearby Wellscroft Lodge (and probably ended up in the odd cocktail here…).

You can see more pictures of the old ice house and follow Alex and Mina’s travels at sending postcards.

I don’t think they have ‘curbs’ there thank-goodness. The idea is to leave it as it was basically. I think it is so beautiful and imagine someone owns it and let’s people use it. Wonderful~!!

Was wondering if you had more pictures of your home such as kitchen, bathroom and other rooms you have to share.
This house looks from the outside very intriguing and has my interest as to what there is inside to make it a home for you.
If you don’t want to share or perhaps there are no more pic’s…well then.
Thanks for the little peek
