Beautiful home in a gorgeous location!

  • 5 of 5

This home is just as beautiful as it looks in the pictures with an incredible mountain view! We loved watching the wildlife that wandered into the back yard. It had everything you need to be comfortable and was a quick ride to town. Our kids loved the bunk beds and we hope we get to go back someday soon!

We had a wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

We rented to celebrate our wedding with family and friends (wedding at Mount Pisgah). We absolutely loved the house and it met our every need! This is the perfect place to create memories with your loved ones. The views are spectacular, the beds were very comfortable and the kitchen space was perfect for our celebration. Thanks again Chris and Sandy!

Spacious, clean home with outstanding view!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Chris and Sandy for allowing me to rent your home for the weekend! The house was spacious and clean, and the location was convenient for a short drive to Saranac Lake and Lake Placid. Firewood was generously provided, along with towels and linens. The yard was large enough for lawn games and the view of the mountains in the distance was serene. I would definitely consider another stay in the future!

Gorgeous House....but issues with arrival

  • 3 of 5

I am writing this review with mixed feelings. The house is gorgeous and well maintained and the views are spectacular. The house easily accommodated 2 families of 4. We liked the proximity to Lake Placid and our keeps enjoyed the tubing at Mt. Pisgah. For the most part the house was well stocked. We had asked ahead of time about basic household essentials, to which we were told that the house was stocked. I would recommend bringing your own kitchen supplies as there was no dishsoap and we couldn't find extra trashbags.

The issues that we had surrounded our arrival. As we were visiting the Lake Placid region in the middle of winter, we had inquired ahead of time about who would clear snow should it snow during our stay. We were told that there is a local caretaker that would take care of that should the need arise. We were also told that the public road to the house is well maintained and a 4 wheel drive vehicle is recommended. It had snowed prior to our arrival. I would say that in the winter months, that a 4 wheel drive vehicle is not just a recommendation, that it is a requirement or else you will not likely get up the hill. Additionally, the public road was not very well plowed when we arrived, which was challenging even in a 4 wheel drive vehicle. Upon arriving at the house, the driveway to the house was not plowed. The road was very narrow due to the snow, so there was not an option to park on the street. Additionally, after driving 4+ hours with young children, it was annoying to arrive to this. We made the decision to pull into the unplowed driveway as there was not a ton of snow and in doing suffered damage to the front end of our vehicle from an object that couldn't be seen in the snow. Upon contacting the owner, they basically laid the blame 100% on us. They said we should have called before going into the driveway and the local caretaker would have come, although we were told it would be clear. The neighbor across the street took pity on us and came over with how snow blower and snow blowed some of the driveway. Additionally, prior to our arrival we were told that the house would be unlocked by the local caretaker and the keys left on the counter. When we arrived, the door was locked. We attempted to call the owner several times prior to getting them to answer to give us the code to the lockbox. Again, this was extremely frustrating and disappointing after travelling so long with small children.

Owner's Response: Again we apologize for all the trouble you encountered with your stay. Living out of the area makes it hard for us to know what is happening at every moment. The caretaker we hired is only a couple miles away and would have been there within minutes had he known the road was recently plowed and made it hard for you to access the driveway. We do wish when you called about the door being locked that you would have informed us of the road/driveway conditions then. We are very sorry for your inconvenience.

My family of 5, including 3 small children & our friends with a one year old stayed at the beautiful camp Odonata in October.

The property was all we imagined & more. It was spotless. They views from the huge porch were amazing. They had a fire pit with fire wood ready for us. We enjoyed an outside fire as well as a fire inside. We would definitely stay there again.
