Located on the border of New York, USA and Quebec, Canada, we purchased this near 100-acre farm and forest by forming a Quebecois French Corporation (Entreprises LollyGag Inc.), hired local staff, and immediately repaired, renovated, upgraded and converted to a nature reserve, animal sanctuary and retreat by us. It was additionally our primary residence, although I commuted to Manhattan and Beijing a lot (~ once a month).
As seen on TV, LollyGag’s Woop Woop was featured in a one hour TV special for DJ’s birthday…
LollyGag became a party hub, nestled between Montreal and Manhattan, hosting friends a plenty for weekend’s away. Its pool, sauna, hot tubs, barns, animals, apple orchard, forest trails, bbq’s, bedrooms, fire pits, fireplaces and cinema got extensive workouts from a large regular stream of guests.
In snowy winter times we would use the snowdrift banks (often 7 ft high) adjacent to the great room pool doors for Champagne storage. We often worked on a barter trading system in the lovely local community, many of whom remain friends to this day.
