Steve / Laura,

Staying at your chalet was an absolute blast - we loved it and we'll be back next year!! You have a spectacular place with such a wonderful feel to it, a superb kitchen, and enough amenities to busy a full party of 10 for a week at least. We loevd the bedrooms, the view, the hot tub outside, bubbling and waiting for us... Guys, it's simply been a blast!

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 family vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this great chalet. Accommodations are very good, amenities are excellent (especially when we had bad weather day) and proximity to Lake Placid town was just right. Thanks. Mark Z.

A great Lake Placid get a away.

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 6 kids and 2 adults for a week in the adirondacks. I have a close friend that lives on this street in Lake placid and knew ahead of time how quite and remote it is. House was beautiful, clean and we loved the hot tub. The kids loved the game room. Good communication with owners, no snags and everything was ready when we arrived. We used both the indoor fire place and had a campfire out back for smores.

I would love to visit again some day. Having lived in Jay for years, it was so great to come back to the lake placid area after having been gone for so long, and this house was perfect.

Absolutely Amazing Chalet and Wonderful Owners

  • 5 of 5

What an awesome experience! I am a frequent Homeaway traveller and this truly is above and beyond. The pics don't do the thoughtful chalet justice, awesome kitchen dinning bedrooms baths gameroom and views. Steve and Laura go out of their way to Not intrude but are fantastic and very attentive with just the right balance of seclusion with caring owners!

LOVE this property

  • 5 of 5

Aside from the location being spectacular, secluded, and convenient, the thing that stands out the most about this property is the way the owners have taken care of every detail. The amenities are amazing, especially the game room in the basement. The house is clean, well kept, and impeccably organized. We loved the gourmet kitchen and master bathroom with radiant heat floors! The owners are wonderful and responsive to any needs or questions. Can't wait to stay here again.

Perfect Rustic Vacation Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The Mountain View Chalet was everything, and more, than we expected. From the amazing kitchen to the spacious family room to the fun game/exercise room, nothing disappointed. We were happy to see the fire pit instead of the chimney. The hot tub was very relaxing after long days of hiking, fishing, or walking through the village. This is, by far, the best vacation rental in which we've ever stayed- from Florida to the Carolinas to Colorado. We are already planning a return trip next summer.
