Michael Edwards & Idominia Falorca purchased this Studio in 1998
Why Michael Edwards & Idominia Falorca chose Au Sable Forks
The story of Adirondack Star Ridge began back in the fall of 1998 when we were traveling through the High Peaks region of the Adirondack Mountains for a weekend getaway. A photo of a realtor's ad spoke to us and we ventured to find the location with captivating views. Little did we know at that time how following the inner small voice was the beginning of positive life changes for us and those who came to experience Star Ridge. The moment we set foot on the 30 acre property we had a tremendous sense of having arrived somewhere truly special. Each step forward along the then logging road brought about a greater sense of excitement and inner peace. When we reached the ridge and took in the majesty of the mountains before us, time stood still and we were one with our true nature. Words are inadequate to express the experience. In that instant the vision of Adirondack Star Ridge was conceived and the labor of love to share what we experienced began.
What makes this Studio unique
From land that had no power or running water and only a narrow logging trail, today what is known as Star Ridge has 4 distinct accommodations to support the varied needs of our guests. The cottage is perfect for couples, friends or a family. Little Star offers a great upscale camping experience in the comfort and convenience of one room tucked in the forrest. The octagonal Studio is versatile and aside from offering surreal mountain top lodging, it has been used for a variety of needs, such as group retreats, mediitaion hall, lecture space, Reiki Circles, Sathsang, prayer sessions with our Swamiji and our Tibetan Monk friend. The Energy is awesome A special feature available on the ridge is an unique outdoor hot water shower with great mountain views and also an upscale heated tiled outhouse with a view. The ensuite offers private space with home like comfort and convenience for a lone traveler or a couple. The multi-sensory experience of rain on the steel roof, song birds, aroma of the surrounding forest, breath taking views and mountain breezes are magically delicious. Because the ridge faces a 180 degree (SW, W & NW) view of the High Peaks and Whiteface Mountain, the majestic scene makes for a surreal experience at sunrise and sunset. Starry nights and meteor showers are common experiences around the bonfire, (conditions permitting). It's also a great opportunity to share travel and life stories with other guests and make new friends.

Get Away from it all and Relax in Nature!
The studio is immaculately clean, cozy, and beautiful on the inside, surrounded by captivating views of the majestic mountains and forest on the outside! The sunsets are spectacular, with the ever-changing colors playing on the clouds, and then when darkness falls, you're treated to yet ANOTHER show when all the stars reveal themselves with depth and clarity! So romantic! Hubby & I stayed a week and never grew tired of this place; it was the ideal base camp for our hiking, sight-seeing, & shopping excursions. Its quiet, peaceful location is a short drive to many fun activities and must-see sights the Adirondacks have to offer, as well as a short ferry ride to Vermont. The owners, Mike & Mini, are delightfully warm, gracious hosts who are quite knowledgeable about the area and just plain fun to talk to! They are there if you need them but never intrude on your space. We felt spoiled by the nice breakfasts they provided for us everyday. This was a truly fun, restorative vacation!
V & M,
Many thanks for your kind words. We miss you already! Hope to have you here again on the ridge someday. all the best to you both.
