Welcome to the site honoring our father’s legacy of preserving the forest and trying to share it with those who may need it rejuvenating solitude. Our father, ‘Ted’ McKinley Joy, loved the forest and loved to invite folks to enjoy to ‘retreat’ into its beauty and serenity. This website describes this legacy and how we try to continue his legacy at the McKinley Retreat, where we’ve crafted unique eco-friendly Adirondack vacation rentals of small pieces of the forest as one-of-a-kind ‘camping-alternative’ experiences that are nestled directly into the Adirondack forest. Plus, our family will work hard to provide (i.e., personally carry in and out) a variety of amenities to temporarily transform a small piece of our forest into your personal back-to-nature hideaway - only without the normal hassles associated with getting back-to-nature! Just click here, to choose your vacation rental package - and we’ll be in touch to let you know precisely how affordable your private forest site vacation rental can be!
