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.
