Welcome to the site honoring our father’s/grandfather’s legacy of preserving the forest and sharing it with those who would like to benefit from its rejuvenating solitude. Our father/grandfather, ‘Ted’ McKinley Joy, cherished the forest and loved to invite folks to ‘retreat’ into its beauty and serenity. This website describes how we try to continue Ted’s legacy at the McKinley Retreat, where we’ve crafted unique eco-friendly vacation rentals of small pieces of the Adirondack forest to let you briefly refresh in the forest he called home.
