There are no shared living spaces, ensuring the privacy of renters. The owner will not enter the main portion of the home used by guests, except for emergencies/safety. Please refer to the house blueprints shaded green/red (in the photos section), which depicts the house layout. The owner may be in the Adirondacks at this time of year and may be staying in the owner's/inlaw apartment section, but if he's gone then the complete property privacy should be considered an added free bonus.

The owner Johnathan Esper is very well known and regarded throughout the Adirondack region through his landscape photography of the Adirondacks, as well as community ties, and has no criminal background. When there are known periods the owner is away in international travels, the pricing structure may automatically increase by ~10% to reflect the additional absolute privacy of the home and surrounding property.

Under some circumstances, the owner's apartment section totaling about 700 sq ft with additional bedroom, kitchen, bath, living room, log spiral staircase, and balcony) may be requested to be rented and opened up to the entire home to be included in the rental, which would incur an extra nightly surcharge of $150/night, at owner's discretion.
