About Jaime and Sara LaBoy

Hello! Our names are Jaime and Sara. We currently live in North Georgia. We have been married for 16 years and have 3 beautiful boys. We both Grew up in the Adirondacks and started our family there.

We are a very busy Hockey family, and enjoy our times returning home to the Adirondack mountains every chance we get.

Jaime and Sara LaBoy purchased this chalet in 2007

Why Jaime and Sara LaBoy chose Whiteface Mountain

We purchased this home as our own little getaway nestled in the woods just outside of Lake Placid. Our home is easy to get to but feels like a world away.

Our home is in Wilmington,NY, which is a quiet, quaint town that is only a few miles away from Lake Placid.

The Adirondacks are known for down to earth atmosphere everywhere you go, Plus it is close to Lake Champlain, Lake Placid and Mirror Lake.

The Adirondack's are the largest park in the lower 48, The Forever Wild also referred to as the 6 million acre Park of Northern New York, so there is plenty of nature to see.

The ADK's are a wild place, but you don't have to be into hiking or the outdoors to enjoy the activities in this six million acre wilderness. Our world-renowned museums and performing arts centers are the soul of our communities, offering an incredible experience no matter the occasion or event.

Throughout each season, our Adirondack communities host Adirondack events that celebrate the region's rich history and legendary heritage. From the oldest winter carnival in the northeast, to one of the most grueling canoe races in the country (the 90-miler from Old Forge to Saranac Lake) - find Adirondack activities year-round in the mountains of Northern New York.

Plenty of Adirondack Activities for Everyone,

If you can dream it - you can do it in the Adirondacks. Offering more diversity than any other recreational area in New York State, the Adirondack Region is renowned as an outdoor playground full of family fun activities

What makes this chalet unique

The Adirondacks are the perfect place for a spring or summer vacation. Warm days, cool nights are just a few of things this region has to offer.

You will also find:

•Wild Adirondack waterways perfect for canoeing and kayaking

•Towering peaks

Planning ahead for your Winter Vacation?

From shredding the greatest vertical drop in the east, to trekking through the back country on snowshoes, there's plenty to keep you busy during winter in the Adirondacks - even if all you do is curl up next to a roaring fire and hibernate.

Whether you're indoors or out, ice-skating is an excellent family friendly activity. Create your own gold medal moment at the Olympic Oval on Main Street in Lake Placid. Skate on the same loop where five Olympic Gold Medals skated during the 1980 Winter Olympic Games, or visit the 1980 Rink where 'Miracle ' happened.Or join in an impromptu ice hockey game in the Hockey Box.

Enjoy the thrill of the Mirror Lake Toboggan Chute. Unique to Lake Placid, the chute is actually an antique ski jump that has been reincarnated - offering one of the most exhilarating rides in Lake Placid.

Recapture the joy of snow days, grab your sled and head for the nearest hills. Explore the region's vast six-million-acres on cross-country skis or simply enjoy an afternoon snowshoeing.

Stroll along scenic Main Streets decorated for the season, or enjoy an outdoor bonfire after a friendly game of broom hockey.

Whatever you do when you visit , enjoy it in true Adirondack style!

Beautiful acommodation in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We rented this for a weekend skiing at Whiteface and could not have been more pleased. The location is perfect - just minutes from the hill on a very quiet and private road with a beautiful view of Whiteface from the master bedroom and living areas. The home is extremely well maintained, clean, very spacious and thoroughly equipped. The owners provider thoughtful extras which I won't spoil by revealing. The owners are also very responsive to queries. I emailed a question and received an immediate phone call in response. You will not regret renting this property. Excellent quality for the price.

Great mountain retreat

  • 4 of 5

We enjoy the spaciousness of the cottage, the spectacular view of Whiteface and the easy access to its trails. Its was a wonderful Canadian Thanksgiving which even attracted some inquisitive wild turkeys in the backyard.

Great location, great view and comfortable accommodations

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Quaker Chalet with our college age children and were very pleased with the layout, the space and the convenient location. We spent little time at the house as we were hiking and exploring but we were thankful to have a "home base" that was clean, comfortable, centrally located and felt like "home". The pool table was a nice bonus in the evenings. There were two tv areas to spread out and watch the Olympics after a long day of hiking. Having a washer and dryer was a blessing when dealing with unexpected rain. Morning coffee on the deck with Whiteface in view was a great way to start each day. The owners clearly went the extra mile by providing incidentals and leaving informative notes and information about the area. The only item that prevents me from giving 5 stars was the kitchen supplies. We made do with what we had but we had to get creative at times. Thanks for helping make our visit to the area great! We would definitely rent here again as well as recommend it to friends.

Owner's Response: We are pleased to hear that our home was a Comfortable, relaxing home base for you and your family. Coffee on the deck, surrounded by Nature is one of my most relaxing past times, I do miss that. Sorry that you didn't have sufficient items in the kitchen, we have since sent more items to work with. Thanks again for choosing Natures Nest, we hope to speak to you for future travels.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The home had a pleasant appeal to it. The house was well equipped with all the basic amenities that made our stay comfortable and enjoyable. The notes really helped us. We had fun playing pool and the board games. The view of the mountains from the patio was breathtaking. We would love to come back.

Has everything!

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled to arrive at this well-equipped house minutes from the ski hill and a short drive to Lake Placid. Indoor and out, there were activities to entertain kids when not at the hill. We thoroughly enjoyed the wood fireplace as well as the downstairs games/entertainment room. Loved the views of the mountains from the back deck and loved the privacy. Would love to return.
