About Roger and Jean Stauffer

We have enjoyed skiing as a family for years and are so excited to make Gore our home mountain. It is an extraordinary place to ski with something for everyone!

We chose this house as a ski house, but it is so much more! There is fun to be had during every month of the year in this beautiful Adirondack town!

Roger and Jean Stauffer purchased this house in 2012

Why Roger and Jean Stauffer chose Adirondacks

The charm of this house, built in 1909, reached out to us. The location is ideal, located close to Gore mountain and within walking distance of the restaurants and shopping in town. Or walk the other direction, cross the Hudson and enjoy a peaceful walk along the river.

What makes this house unique

With 5 bedrooms, there is enough room for a crowd to find some quiet time, yet plenty of room to all get together in the living room for a game of charades or a movie night. The kitchen table is a great place for a never ending game of Pictionary (if you are as bad at drawing as we all are)!

Step back in time. Well maintained and equipped.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. Easily fit our group of 12. Plenty of space for all. Grandkids loved staying there, they are already asking when we can go again. Being able to have our 3 children, spouses and their children stay with us was great. We played tourists during the day and went "home" at night for dinner and family time. Very good experience.

Great place to stay!!

  • 4 of 5

The first day when we arrived it felt little odd as the property is like a Victorian old house :) but as we looked around , we started liking it. We had 5 kids with us and they lot of indoor games to play. With roku device it was helpful to keep them busy with Kids Netflix as well. Also, the owner is very nice as we had chits all around to help with what to use and what not to. As well Hudson flowing next to property was a great place for morning walk as well as gore ski mountain is walking. Overall very good with few things missing - There is no dishwasher, as property is old , the locks need some repair.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed the house, it is quite unique, built around 1909, originally known as the "O'Keefe House." He was the town doctor and his son has written several books about growing up in "the crik." The locks can be a little tricky, not too many houses use "skeleton" keys these days! We look forward to having you visit again!

Perfect size and location

Enjoyed our three night stay with multiple families. Plenty of rooms, beds, place settings, etc. Everything we needed and more. Also, nice to be in village and walking distance to grocery, shops etc.

Interesting place but far for being excellent for us

  • 3 of 5

To start with, host were very friendly through all our messaging and gave us a lot of useful information.

The house itself definitely has a touch of family history and spirit.

I would say that we had too much of "being a guest" feeling, as the place is filled with "do/don't" notes and instructions.

Way too much rules for the rental property.

The house is really accommodating for a big company with plenty of space to put your ski equipment and other things.

We really enjoyed the original fireplace which filled the living room with cozy warmness.

And of course the location is great, very close to the Gore Mountain and to the shops.

Another upside is the warmness of the place.

But it is accompanied with no fresh air as all the windows are tightly closed with plastic film.

That was a big downside for my family as we don't like stuffy rooms, especially at night.

Gore Mt. House

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at the house. It had everything that was needed for our stay. A short walk to Main St. - North Creek for Bars and Restaurants. Was perfect for a weekend getaway with the guys.
