Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great week at your beautiful home. We saw a deer everyday on our in or out. The kids had a great time. There was so much to do -- we saw the ski events, toured the Olympic museum and rode the bobsled! That was definitely an experience the kids will never forget! The weather was perfect everyday. We had a nice lunch down at the river as well.

Thank you for allowing us to use your wonderful home! It is cozy, warm, inviting, and very clean.

Into the Woods

  • 4 of 5

As we drove into the community we felt we were truly going into the woods. What awaited us was a lovely oasis.

The owners were quickly accessible through e-mail with on site questions, the house was well equipped, clean and, for the most part, comfortable. For the exception of the trundle bed, the beds were very comfortable. There were plenty of linens and comforters. Plenty of kitchen supplies and staples were available. Kid friendly having a crib available, and games for all ages.

It would be helpful to have more information in the notebook, even though there is plenty of info on the HomeAway site. For example - where is the closest food market, pizza, or lake with beach.

We had a wonderful time and appreciated the opportunity to enjoy this lovely home in the woods.

Quiet, secluded, clean, spacious

  • 5 of 5

Perfect accommodations for 2 families while attending an Adirondack wedding. The home had all the amenities we needed for a busy weekend. Location was reasonably close to several sites in the area.

Another wonderful week in the chalet!

  • 5 of 5

We returned this year extending our trip by a few days and adding a few people to our group. Howard and Sandra were again, incredibly helpful and accommodating when it came to answering questions or offering help. The home was just as comfortable with as many people. We had an amazing time and the new family who joined our trip also can't wait to return again. I can't think of anything not already available for use at the chalet. We love cooking for our group and taking advantage of the fire after a day at the mountain - pots, pans, slow cooker to start off a hearty meal in the morning aregarding all available. I've even used the BBQ both years in February as its very conveniently located. Thank you Howard and Sandra for sharing your home! Great location for Lake Placid visitors and Whiteface skiers and boarders!

Beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

They aren't kidding when they say beautiful ski chalet. Everything is lovely about this place and they have everything you need there, sheets, dishes, blankets. Just be careful if it snows! The driveway and surrounding roads were a bit tough. Grit only, no salt.

Perfect chalet!!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 10 (2 families with 4 adults and 6 childrens) loved this wonderful chalet! Very clean, cozy, with all the amenities that we need and plenty of space for everyone. We loved the recreation room with the big screen tv and the games for the kids. They spent some time there while we, the adults, were eating dinner with a nice fire going on in the burning stove. The bedrooms are large and have enough place to sleep and to put out hiking stock in it. The kitchen is very well equiped and the we able to sit all the 10 of us at the kitchen table! The owners are very nice and quick responding to our questions! We will definitely look forward to rent it again next year!
