Guestbook comments from the owner

Gene's house in the Adirondacks is truly a sight to behold. It's a gorgeous, spacious and rustic multi-level home with new furnishings and appliances, sitting on a cozy piece of land. My friends and I had an amazing weekend out of the hectic city here, and Gene was very courteous and helpful with any concerns or questions I had. Don't miss this place. Hot tub is legit, you can't do a winter trip without one!!

Beautiful rental in Lake Placid area!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time staying at the Grand Meadows house. We came here with a large group for a work retreat/ski trip over a long weekend and could not have been happier with our stay. We rented three properties owned by Gene and he was so helpful in coordinating the trip and being accommodating with our needs. The houses themselves are so beautiful and clean and had everything we needed including a hot tub, sauna, and fire pit with a gorgeous view of the mountains. We definitely plan on visiting again next year!

Beautiful house and views

We came for Christmas with our family. 6 Adults and 10 children (between ages 1 to 12) most of our family came up from Florida and have never seen snow before, which made it extra special. There was a sled for the kids to use on the property. The kids loved staying downstairs in the kids room. They played X-box and the other games there.

We were delighted to see a Christmas tree already set up and turned on upon arrival. There was a crib there too. My niece was so happy for her baby boy, plus a baby gate in the house to keep the little one from falling down the stairs.

We used the fireplace everyday and the hot tub with sauna to go into afterwards was nice.

The great room lives up to it's name. The kitchen has everything you could need and more. Everyone enjoyed themselves. There are a lot of things to do in the area and if you just want to relax you couldn't possibly ask for a nicer place. The snow was beautiful, as was the house. On our last night we used the fire pit, the and the kids told ghost stories.

The views from the house are spectacular, don't forget to bring a telescope.

We reached out to Gene once during our stay and he got back to use within minutes after receiving our text, very easy to get a hold of and had quick answers to questions.

The house is spacious and clean. You cannot be bored at this house. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Outstanding Rental! Six Stars!

Eight of us stayed four nights over the first weekend in December. What a treat this property was! Everything about this place is quality......and yes, the cliche applies here: the pictures don't do it justice. The interior is very warm and inviting, the kitchen has everything, the living area is a magnet, the bathrooms were first class, and all of the bedrooms were perfectly situated. There is an excellent "flow" to the lodge. The hot tub and sauna were big hits also. We loved the fire pit and the mountain views. Thank you Gene for making the rental process quick and simple, and for checking in with me during our stay to ensure that everything was fine. It was better than fine, and we hope to be back!

Beautiful home for a Lake Placid getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely stunning. The property owner (Gene) was very easy to communicate with and everything was just as expected. The entire home was extremely cozy, and the heated jacuzzi was a wonderful touch. Will definitely plan on staying here in the future. Highly recommended.
