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!!

Amazing property, the best family get together for the holidays.

  • 5 of 5

We visited from Dec 23 -Jan. 1 we enjoined our stay for the holidays, it was like a winter wonderland, the house is very well maintained, very clean and we'll equipped, the kitchen had all the gadgets and very spacious. We were 10 adults 4 children and 1 little dog, we had plenty of space and entertainment for everyone, we even had a barbecue outside with a 0 degrees outside, plenty of boardgames for the children, we enjoyed the fireplace every night, the rooms were very specious, we had a hot tub night it was great. The house is beautiful we were very happy that we choose this propert specially Gene was very proffecional and answered all my questions from the beginning to the end and all the instructions worked out perfect. I recommend this property to everyone who is looking to stay in a very secluded place in the mountains at the Adirondack getaway. Gene thank you for everything and looking foward to probably go back in the future to enjoy the summer. Margarita Mejia

Another Great Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting homes in the park for over 20 years and once again our family had a great experience working with High Peaks Rentals. This home is beautiful and was a perfect setting to bring our family together for Thanksgiving. Communication was excellent with the owner throughout. The home is beautiful, well equipped and the location is convenient for hiking or a quick run into Lake Placid. This is not our first time renting from Gene and we will be back again soon.

The house was just as luxurious looking in person.

  • 5 of 5

Gene was amazing with everything! He was very prompt with answers to all of my questions, and was flexible with arrival and departure times that came in handy since we all came from really far.

The house was AMAZING! It was super clean and well kept. The decorations were a nice touch in making this home feel cozy. There was plenty of space for our group of 15 people. The rooms were beautiful with very comfy beds and enough storage space. There were enough bathrooms for our group which were stocked with toilet paper, and fresh clean towels. The kitchen was stocked with pots and pans which was great since we didn’t pack our own. There were also two fridges that came in handy since we packed so much food. One in the kitchen and one in the garage. The game room was packed with games that entertained everyone while the food was cooking. This house provided the best stereo system. We all brought our own speakers since previous houses did not have them, but were surprised and excited to see that the stereo system was not only provided but also worked really well and was easy to use. The windows in the dinning area made it easy to let fresh air in without the bugs. The view from the house was very calming, especially when relaxing on the hammock. When posting pictures to our own individual social media, everyone commented on how beautiful the house and landscape were. They also wanted to know where we were at and more info on the house. We all had a blast and did not want to leave. I would for sure rent from Gene again!

*side note* our drive was 6+ hours but definitely worth the drive. Everyone in my group wanted to buy this house!

Beautiful place, quick responses if you need anything. We would definitely stay again.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here the last week of October. Still a few leaves on the trees. 8 adults and 6 kids. Plenty of room. Beds are very comfortable. Used outdoor fire pit, sauna, and hot tub and all excellent. Can't wait to come back.
