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!!

Wonderful!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a weekend to celebrate a 50th birthday for a family member. We had a wonderful time. We loved having everyone be able to stay in one location together. The house is beautiful with amazing views! Gene, the owner, was friendly and helpful and eager to make sure we enjoyed our stay. Thank you for a wonderful weekend! We are talking about coming back again. Highly recommend this house!

Beautiful, spacious property with warm, cozy feel!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I just stayed here for the second year in a row and loved it twice as much as the first time! The owner made a bunch of amazing improvements in the time we were away so everything feels new and up to date. The bedrooms are spacious and the house has a ton of natural light. Highly recommend for anyone who wants a cozy mountain get-away!

Flawless trip to this beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

This house is stunning and luxurious in every way. The property offers privacy and beatiful views on the outside, and every emenity you could need on the inside. The house is super roomy (slept 18 of us comfortably), great kitchen and great big table for group meals, awesome speakers and TVs for the basketball games, and so much more. The sauna, hot tub, and firepit were big hits on the outside, and the games in the basement were a huge hit on the inside.

Gene could not have been a more hospitable host. Very responsive leading up to and during the trip. Very organized with payments and instructions, and everything he said was exactly what we got. Kudos to Gene!

We will definitely be back to this house, and encourage others to book this great house.

Comfortable and Fun!

  • 5 of 5

This house is large and spacious. We spent the week cross country skiing at Mt. Van Hoevenberg and backcountry on nearby trails. The house is conveniently located not far from Whiteface or Lake Placid. Guitar Hero and Ping Pong were a big hit among our guests as was the sauna, hot tub and outdoor fire pit. Highly recommend this place for large groups.
