  • 5 of 5

Our stay was awesome!! Location was great close to town close to the slopes nice private setting. Everything you could think you would need was supplied, clean Linens overall cleanliness was awesome lots of extra Sundries they had if you forgot things such as toothpaste, Band-Aids, soap ,shampoo you name it they had it. There was cable, internet which work well. We were pleased to find a Keurig coffee pot with plenty of K-cups provided.

Unfortunately we are unable to meet the owners, they were out of town but our communication over the phone was awesome. We look forward to coming back again soon.

Great place for a small family

  • 5 of 5

We cannot recommend the property or the people enough. As summertime residents of the town we can safely say that this was an undiscovered gem. We have two teenage boys who very much enjoyed the loft and the place was very clean with very nice and attentive owners. You won't regret it.

Great hosts and great location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage that we stayed in was very cozy and comfortable. Keep in mind that top level has low ceilings and better suited for kids or just for laying down/sleeping. The house had everything we needed. Location is great, about 20-25 walk to main street in Lake Placid and 15min drive to White Face. Overall great stay and I would come back.

Fantastic in every way

  • 5 of 5

This spot is a gem. Clean, quiet, cozy, private, comfortable, has every amenity you can think of. The owners are very nice and personable and accommodating. The location is great. You feel like you are away from the crowds but you are just minutes from town. We couldn't have been happier with our choice to stay here.

Idyllic cottage in an idyllic setting

  • 5 of 5

This was by far the nicest VRBO/HomeAway experience I have ever had. Brendan and Penny are gracious hosts and welcomed us warmly--even going out of their way to help us find ways to view Loons in the Adirondacks. The cottage is gorgeous and well-cared for. We felt like a family while we were there and we will definitely return!

Great place to stay in Lake Placid

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 4 adults, 2 couples. Before we even got the confirmation of the booking I got a phone call from Brendan telling me the loft area is small and may not be suitable for adults. I assured him we'll be fine. The twin beds in the loft are normal twin beds. Adults CAN sleep there. That's not a problem at all. Just don't expect to spend significant time hanging out in the loft. It's a loft.

The entire cabin is basically made of natural wood. Beautifully done and it made us wish we were staying longer.

The owners live right next door and are very nice and helpful if you have any questions about activities, restaurants, etc.

Overall very highly recommended!
