Guestbook Comment

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful house provided the perfect setting for my adult children, grandchildren and I to play together for a week in, on and around beautiful Lake Placid. The kitchen was well-eqipped and large enough for several cooks to work in. There were enough comfortable beds and bathrooms to accomodate all of us. The hot tub was used every day and was especially fun at night. And the gameroom was in constant use. In general, the chalet is beautiful, clean, well-maintained and just plain fun to stay in. We had a great time!

Excellent weekend getaway for a large family

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at this awesome house. We have 6 children ranging in age from 2 to 17 so the game room was perfect for the older kids and the hot tub was entertaining for the younger ones. The kitchen was stocked with everything you need to cook. The dining room table is huge so it was very accommodating. The owners kept us very informed regarding the home. We highly recommend the Mountain View Chalet. Way better than staying in a hotel!

Fantastic ski weekend

  • 5 of 5

The Mountain View Chalet far exceeds the online descriptions. Everyone in our party marveled at the house and its setting. The pictures really don't do it justice. The living space and kitchen are gracious, warm, and spacious. The master suite in particular is fit for royalty. The hot tub and rec room were nice touches as well. And everything was remarkably clean and well-taken care of. One of the cars in party rented an economy car and could not get up the driveway, but Steve was very helpful and we all managed to get to the house. (An AWD or larger front-wheel drive is recommend in winter!) Next time we're in the Adirondacks, we'll be sure to stay here again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. We look forward to you coming again! Studded snow tires is all that's needed for getting up the drive. That's what I have on my Prius. Glad you enjoyed your stay! Come again soon!
