Spring sometimes gets a muddy reputation in the mountains, but spring is actually an awesome time to own property in the Adirondacks.
From the end of March through the end of June, the Adirondacks truly come alive. Flowering trees and greening meadows slowly take over the snowy slopes and wildlife comes out of hibernation. Truly, there’s nothing more magical than a crocus peeking through the snow on that first warm day.
We often think of buying mountain land in the Adirondacks for summer camping or fall hunting or winter skiing and snowboarding, but spring (unfairly) falls through the cracks. Spring in the Adirondacks is a season of renewal and renovations and clean up. Spring is the season when you put in the work and sit back with satisfaction as you see the results. Spring is the season when crisp mornings give way to mild days and longer evenings and you know the wait has been worth it.
Spring, therefore, is the best time of the year to buy and own Adirondack property.
One spring weekend you might be out in the backcountry glade skiing and the next you’re getting ready to till your garden and make little improvements around the house.
In spring, you still wake up in the morning to put on a sweater and stand at the window with your steaming mug of coffee to take in the stunning view of frosty mountain land. But then you spend the mild days getting ready for summer and the longer evenings around the fire pit toasting marshmallows and savoring the last sips of warm cider and wine.
Spring in the Adirondacks, in other words, is unpredictable in all the best ways. There’s no better time to enjoy your Adirondack mountain property than the season when everything becomes new again, the days get longer, and possibility is around every corner.
