Just Like Home; Just Like Family

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family stayed in this house for a week over the 4th of July. Our experience right from the start with Doug and Barb was exceptional. They fully accommodated our initial arrangements when we had a few changes. They welcomed us with "open arms" and a bottle of wine upon our arrival! And they were available during the week if we needed them. The house is just lovely- very well appointed and equipped. There was nothing we needed. The yard was wonderful for the kids. And we all loved the visit from the deer ever morning and afternoon. Parking was adequate for the guests we had during the week. And the location is ideal- a couple blocks from the main street that goes through Old Forge. We could get to everything without getting in the car. I fully recommend this property. We stay there again in a heart beat. If felt like home in more ways than one.

Awesome Adirondack Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Doug & Barb for sharing your beautiful home. We had an awesome week. The location was ideal for our multi-generational group. We hiked, biked, canoed, swam and shopped all the gift shops. We enjoyed a couple of meals out (Stillwater Inn has awesome chowder) and did some eating in too. The kitchen had everything we needed to make our own meals. My folks (85 & 89) thoroughly enjoyed your place - especially the daily visits from the deer. We visited the Goodsell Museum and my mom was happy to find some info about the Cohassette Hotel where her mother worked back in 1920. Being avid campers we enjoyed topping most evenings off with a campfire - thanks for having the backyard fire pit. It's a vacation we'll long remember.

Loved it so much we already booked it again!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came to Old Forge for our first time, along with our four children (ages 3-9), for a snowmobile weekend. Barb and Doug met us at the house upon arrival and my first impression of anything is that these folks are two of the kindest, most accommodating and helpful people I've ever met; the kind of people you would love to have in your own family. As for the home - I fell in love immediately. Its so beautiful and so charming, so many lovely details that you only find in a home this age. There is nothing 'modern' about the architecture or style, which is precisely the appeal. You feel like you're back in time, from the beautiful wallpaper to the gorgeous wood trim and details; the glass and brass doorknobs, the hard word flooring and beautiful wood built-ins. People who own homes like this tend to live in them, preserve them, and rarely share their beauty. Barb and Doug open their home to guests lucky enough to find the time to visit. Our children loved the home and were enamored with endless 'hide-n-seek' possibilities; none of us wanted to leave... so the day after we arrived home we booked another weekend! One last comment, and I've read several of the same - the house is SPOTLESS. I mean to say, I walked around in light blue and white socks for 4 days and there was not a hint of dirt on any of my socks - MY SOCKS!!! I don't even know how that's possible! So if you're looking for cleanliness, comfort, charm... a place where you KNOW you want to go back to as soon as you can... THIS is your place! Thank you Doug and Barb, it was a pleasure and we look forward to staying in your beautiful home again!

Perfect for our large party of 10!

  • 5 of 5

A group of 10 friends and family rented this property while attending a wedding in Old Forge. The house was very clean when we arrived. The owners were super helpful in terms of navigating the area. The location was perfect for walking to town and the house had more than enough room for all 10 people in our party. Would definitely stay here again.

Wonderful Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a girls weekend here in July and absolutely loved the place! It was within walking distance to everything (including kayak rentals). There were ten of us and we had no trouble being comfortable in the house as it is very spacious. There were girls that traveled in from all over the country and we had a lot to celebrate since we were all together (weddings, babies, new jobs, etc). Barb and Doug do a great job of providing an extremely clean house with unexpected items for our use such as soaps, paper products, etc. It was nice that we didn't need to travel with all of those extras! The yard was great and we were able to sit out and have fires and picnics. We will definitely rent from them again:) We enjoyed walking into town to all of the shops, restaurants, and coffee bistro! Fabulous trip for all!

Outstanding!!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 11 women ranging from ages 45-71 enjoyed a wonderful 4 day 3 night stay in this beautiful home in Old Forge!! We could not have asked for a more accommodating house with so much space we did not bump into one another at all! This is a perfect location just a block off of main street in Old Forge NY within walking distance to local shops, restaurants and bars and even kayaking! No need for a car at all unless you wanted to travel outside of Old Forge. The house itself had so much charm and character we just loved. In fact we loved it so much we booked for 2015 already. Doug and Barb were so very nice and informative about not just the house but the area as well. We truly appreciated them allowing us to share this gem of a house. I am sure you would not be disappointed in this beautiful home if you chose to say there. We also had the company of a deer family that visited us every day we were here with their little ones in tow which were born on the property.

Thanks so very much Doug and Barb for letting us use this great house?
