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.

Awesome Place, Super Clean and Roomy

  • 5 of 5

This was really an awesome place to stay at an incredible value and great convenience. Not sure the pictures do it justice. Very nice bathrooms. The home is on three levels so all of our guests were completely accommodated. We had four people on each level for a total of 12 adults and kids and it was great. The first day we went to Whiteface which is close by and easy to get to. It is a fantastic mountain to ski and board on. The second day we just hung around the house. The kids sledded in the driveway, played in the snow and hung out by they fire pit where we cooked hotdogs and enjoyed the serenity of this place. All of use fit around the dining room table for some big family dinners. A well stocked kitchen with ample room for cooking, socializing, and enjoying the views. Decks and outdoor access on every level and good star gazing at night. The third day we went to Olympic Village which was just further down the road from Whiteface. Here we did the dog sledding, toboggan run, lunch, ice cream, and shopping in a great village setting. For a chalet in the woods the place was super clean. The floors, bathrooms and bedrooms were all very clean, comfortable, and well maintained. The bathrooms are big and there is even a washer and dryer on the first level for your needs. The owners were also in touch and very attentive to any needs and accommodating. The area itself is full of friendly and mellow people. I would like to go back in a different season to go fishing on the Ausable River which looked awesome as we drove around the area. I would love to stay here again and highly recommend this place to you. Thank you and enjoy.

Beautiful, relaxing stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have a big family and sometimes we just need a chance to get away from the hustle and bustle of urban life. We chose this cabin because of how beautiful it looked and the great reviews and let me tell you, it was the best decision! From the start Sandra and Howard were so nice and helpful in preparing for our trip. When we got there, it was breathtaking! Their house is absolutely beautiful! It was so quiet and peaceful! We ended up having a storm the first night and had no power for the weekend (I learned to be careful what I wish for! I asked for a technology free weekend and boy did we get it!). Our children had a wonderful time exploring the woods and having family time! The neighbors around the area were so helpful and nice! It made us want to look into real estate in the area! We have found our annual family vacation and can't wait until we come back again for longer than a weekend! Thank you so much Sandra and Howard for sharing your beautiful house with us! We can't wait to come back!

Nice, cozy, quiet house

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable house for 8 people to stay, cooperative owner and responsible maintenance guy. Would be better to have a gravel driveway and parking area, it was raining heavy and even my 4 x 4 had some problems in the mud. Overall - highly recommended.

Great place to stay for a weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was a great place to stay for our group of 6 guys since we could each have our own bed which is ideal. The place had everything we needed and more and was very comfortable and warm for the temp below 0 outside. Overall we were well pleased.
