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 home in a Beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

Rented this Airbnb out for an afterprom event with my friends (a full 21 of us) and there was more than enough room for everyone!

The kitchen is very well equipped with anything you'd want including spices, baking supplies, etc. The game room is awesome, although I'd recommend bringing video games from home. On top of that the yard space was virtually completely private, the hot tub and sauna were a bonus, and the patio had a beautiful view.

The list could go on but really great job to the owner and caretaker because other than a few small details such as garbages in the bathrooms, and a little damage on the closed in patio's screen, this house was perfect.

Not to mention being in one of the most scenic locations with many hiking trails, small town shops, and lake beaches just a hop step and a skip away.

Great experience, beautiful home !!

  • 5 of 5

Our first thought when arriving at this house was how beautiful it was, not only the house but it's surroundings. If you seek to enjoy nature in calmness and comfort, this is the perfect setting. The house had more than enough space for our large group. The kitchen was stocked with everything we would need to prepare our meals and enjoy dinners in the dining room or on the deck. The views were spectacular! It was easy to destress and just breathe. There was so many things we could do, from hiking to swimming and enjoying the sights of the surrounding communities. The owner Gene was a real help and was eager to help us with anything we needed. We would definitely recommend this home to anyone looking for rest or adventure!! We were able to create some great memories that will last a life time! We look forward to our next excursion and will be eager to visit again.

A memorable weekend in a beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for our daughter's wedding and had a group of family and friends stay for the weekend. The lodge is beautiful and had everything you would need for a large group to have a lovely, comfortable stay. Kitchen is fully stocked for a large group...everything from pots and pans to champagne glasses. Views are beautiful! Enjoyed outdoor fires both evenings. Ping pong table was a big hit. Nice speakers to play music. Gene was very easy to work with, was quick to respond to any questions and very accommodating. We would love to come back for a longer stay. It truly was a memorable weekend for our family.

Was well worth the wait !!!

  • 5 of 5

Last year was our first family trip up and stay to this area of the Adirondacks and this property , we were so taken back not only by the beauty of the area and activities to do... but the beauty and amenities of the house was almost overwhelming ..so it was a pretty easy decision for us to return this year...and again , it was such an experience we booked next year as we were leaving the driveway.

We have used HomeAway several places along the East Coast , in Virginia and North Carolina and as well as another property in upstate New York ... it's not just the property that makes the trip an experience but it also the owners ...attention to the details and willingness to help with whatever questions or situations we may have ... We want to say thank you to Gene for not only the experiences we've been able to have ...but the memories our family and friends will keep forever...and looking forward to many , many , many more...:)

See you in 2018 !!!!!

Beautiful views, house was spectacular, in a word Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Gene was awesome every step of the way. He was up front, honest, and incredibly helpful. Everyone in the party has not been able to stop talking about our trip. The only issue was the weather which was overcast. Some of my friends and I have already discussed a return trip. I'd recommend this place to anyone looking for an unbelievable trip to a beautiful location
