Is your chimney safe?

I love chimneys! They add old-fashioned charm and bring warmth to a home. But, somehow, they’re overlooked when buying or renovating a home.

Baby, it’s cold outside. So get out there and ski! There’s no better place than Whiteface Mountain. It’s one of the highest peaks in New York and of course our favorite in the country.

Hiking Owl’s Head Mountain is such a treat! First of all, it’s almost a straight upwards climb through boulders, rocks, and forest. And when you make it to the top, your reward is one of the most amazing views of the High Peaks. Just outstanding! I also love that the Owl’s Head Mountain hike is shorter then most.
