Simply staying at this stunning home is a perfect vacation destination.

  • 5 of 5

Having just shared a beautiful vacation experience with my family of 8 adults and 4 children at this amazing home, we decided, though there were wonderful views and activities to do in the area, you never really needed to leave this house! Attention to details were everywhere in this spacious home...large parking areas for many vehicles. .a beautifully maintained log home with a covered wrap around wide deck with a gas grill , Adirondack chairs and a dining table with 6 cushioned chairs in the back overlooking a large open yard with a fire pit stocked with wood tucked under the pine trees provided a perfect end to our evenings ...once inside the home,.there was a welcoming entrance with numerous hand huned pegs for coats... soaring woodcrafted ceilings......large bedrooms with ceiling fans, bureaus and full closets on all floors... a well stocked granite countertop, green cabinet kitchen with numerous pots and pans, dishware, glassware, and silverware...comfortable dining chairs..overstuffed pillows and soft throws on all of the large upholstered couches and even a chair that seats 2!...a king bed master suite with a huge walk-in tiled shower, jetted tub, an abundance of thick towels, and a conveniently placed washer/dryer in its own closet...the 2nd floor had a wide open loft space with the 3 oversized bedrooms and 2 bathrooms opening onto it. A desk / office area in the loft provided a "work from home " space to several family members...then the lower level was the party area!...sauna, ping pong and game tables, Xbox, tv, bedroom, another washer dryer... AND access to huge hot tub with overhead mood

lighting ! An absolutely gorgeous house. I honestly can't think of one thing that I would change or add.

Best of all, we felt already welcomed before we even got there by the owner, Gene. He was quick to respond to our many, many questions with thorough answers, not just one liners. He wanted to make sure we were comfortable with everything before and during our stay. It is obvious that he is proud of his home and that he sincerely cares that you are happy with it, too. It was a wonderful adventure! I highly recommend this home.

Thank you, Gene.

Old Eb home

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home in a remote area of the Adirondacks. Anywhere we drove had beautiful vistas. The house was very clean and had super comfy beds.

We had several families with the teenagers and young children and the house promoted fun for all with a great kitchen to hang in. The owner Gene was a pleasure to deal with. He responds to emails and phone calls immediately. He is a very reasonable owner. Would definitely rent from him again.

Awesome property with lots of room, privacy and tremendous views.

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd visit and we have enjoyed it each time. Since our last visit, they have updated great room and bedroom furniture. Very private and peaceful and plenty of room for extended family (and enough room inside and outside to get away from said family as needed :)). Gene is super responsive and follows up on any questions that come up to ensure his guests have a great stay.

The best experience of my life.

  • 5 of 5

My entire family of 16 includes 10 Grandchildren, 3 Daughters and their Spouses. Four of my Grandchildren, two from California, one from Fla. and one from NC is testimony of the closeness of our family. Each member couldn't say enough about the house we stayed in. So spacious, room for everyone to have sleeping quarters, location was beautiful. Everything that was promised was there. You could tell the owner took pride in his properties, they where spotless and he was available with any have questions you may have, making you feel right at home. The pictures do no justice and we took a family vote and will be returning in 2019. thank you Gene for making our experience one that we will not forget.
