Fantastic House

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at Claus Family Lodge. We had such a good time and made super memories. The house was warm and welcoming. The bedrooms were large, with plenty of closet space and very clean. The house is new and has very clean bathrooms and kitchen. The kitchen has beautiful granite counter tops, all new appliance.. 2 large refrigerators and heated slate floors. The front living room is so cozy. With a huge 80 in TV. The guys loved watching the games there. The gals all played cards and read books in the large living area in the front of the house which looks right at whiteface mt and Lake Placid. The kids loved the downstairs game room.. played pingpong and stayed up playing games and then had lots of fun in the upstairs bunk room. We enjoyed out time there so much. The house is close to town and we walked to dinner to a few different restaurants. I can hardly wait to come back in the Summer when we can use the pool! In the meantime, the hot tub kept many of us warm and relaxed. Thank you Mea and Ann!!

We All Loved S. Claus Lodge

  • 5 of 5

This house has so much charm and warmth. We loved it. The location is super as well. You are a hop skip and jump away from The Cottage and Mirror Lake. The house was super clean, especially the bathrooms and kitchen. The kids loved the game room and their bunk room. We can hardly wait to come back in the Summer when the pool is open! In the meantime we all enjoyed the hot tub! I would highly recommend this house to large groups. 5 bathrooms, 2 refrigerator/freezers and 2 wash and dryers. ALL GOOD!

This was an awesome house! Plenty of room. Clean

  • 5 of 5

This was a large and roomy home. Beautiful furniture that was really comfortable. Big bedrooms and a bunk room that all the kids loved. Clean bathrooms. Multiple areas in the house for everyone to spread out...despite our large group, we were anything but cramped. Great location and you could walk to town! i highly recommend this place.
