If you are a long time camp or home owner, or are about to become one, there are multiple responsibilities that come with this honor – thanks to the extremes of our four seasons. From winterization, to opening it up for the summer, to everything in between, there are literally dozens of details to attend to.
But there is a family owned business based in the hamlet of Adirondack, Adirondack Home Watch, that cane takes the worry out of home ownership, for both year round and seasonal folks.
The business is run by Kathy Hill, a native Adirondacker who has resided in Warren County her entire life.
Together with her husband Mike, thid dynamic duo can take care of just about any detail to do with your home or camp, from security, property and concierge services. Some recent testimonials:
“We recently bought a home on Schroon Lake which we rent out. The people at Adirondack Home Watch not only take care of the property when we aren’t there, they help our renters with any concerns there might be around the house and property. Although tenants check themselves in, it is a real comfort to know that we have someone there locally to help out if a problem comes up. At one point last winter, in checking our fuel supply, they realized that we were almost out of oil. They were able to follow through and make sure we could get a delivery, avoiding the possibility of a real mess. They can also check on the property after a tenant departs but before our cleaner can get there. I don’t know how we could rent our home in the Adirondacks without them".
“We have owned a weekend / vacation home on Schroon Lake for 25 years. The people at Adirondack Home Watch have been an incredible resource. When we need help with something and can’t be up there, they take care of it. On one visit they found the ignitors for our stove running continuously. They disconnected the appliance and arranged repairs. They have been able to bring power and prevent a freeze up during winter storms. They have identified that we were low on fuel and arranged delivery. The piece of mind of being able to call a local resource, who we can trust, to take care of things when we aren’t there is priceless.”
