Our stay

Awesome location! Walking distance of stores, restaurant, entertainment. Need the car to go skiing. Most of all, the owner offered us to arrive l and leave anytime we wanted which is really nice. He also credited us the deposit back hours after we left. I highly recommend the place and the owner. Thanks again!

Beyond convenient

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on May 30th and found plenty of off street parking right off Main Street in. Not much of a yard but we weren’t there to garden! First night walked the Main Street and ate at Adirondack Steak and Seafood.

We stayed 3 nights and each morning walked to Starbucks for coffee after we had a wonderful walk around Mirror Lake. Never had to get back in our car after a quick trip to the grocery store!!!! So convenient!!! Everything was just a few minutes away. We walked to the Olympic Arena and strolled Main Street and explored shops, restaurants and our share of bars for night caps.

Next time we will come back for a week and in summer so we can walk to the beach to swim and relax.

All in all a wonderful getaway highly recommend it.
