The '46er', named for those that have mastered the highest peaks in the Adirondacks, keeps with the tradition of 46ers. She is well equipped, well oriented and surrounded by beauty, leaving you never wanting to return home. Unlike just another impersonal rental property, you'll find the warmth and comfort of home with soft cushy towels, down pillows and comforters. The chalet is completely remodeled with hard wood floors, skylights, new kitchen and bathroom. The chalet is nestled on a hillside facing Whiteface and Stephenson Ranges. Whiteface Olympic Mountain, which is only two miles away and offers the ultimate in winter sports! It was voted the Best Ski Center in the North East!
Lake Placid Village with all that it has to offer is just ten beautiful miles away on the most picturesque road of the Adirondacks. Here you can enjoy shopping, dining, arts and crafts, museums, The Olympic Center, golf, horse shows, movies, festivals, nightlife ... or 'in short' - hustle and bustle of this special, lively Olympic Village.
When your spirit moves you beyond the chalet, so much awaits! First you'll encounter the large, wrap around deck which sports Adirondacks chairs and an outdoor dining area, and sometimes chickadees that will eat from your hands. You may not get much further for awhile. Many guests fall into the hammock for a snooze or fire up the grill to cook the trout they caught. The hot tub invites you for that romantic or relaxing dip after the day on the mountain. In the evening, there is the stone ring campfire for all the stories of the day.
The Master Bedroom is furnished with Queen Size Bed. It is cozy, quiet and romantic.
The Loft features two Twin Beds and has a special ambiance of a mountain home. Slanted ceilings with a skylight window , twig work railing and a comfortable oversize chair. A place where little and big kids enjoy being in.
There is a Queen Size futon in the living room for extra guest or larger families....moreless
The bathrooms has a nice glass walled corner unit shower.
The chalet is really special in that it is comfortable for a family or a group of friends, yet still intimate for a couple alone. It's a great place just 'to be'- sitting up in the loft in the comfy oversize chair, reading a good book while listening to the gentle rain on the skylight or in the living room snuggled on the couch by the fireplace warming your soul.(At the 46er your firewood is cut, stacked and ready to go.) Or perhaps you prefer sitting on the meditation pillow, listening to the transcendental music while receiving the healing energy of this magical place. There is always a soft throw or a blanket at hand to wrap yourself in and many beautiful pillows to arrange for that 'just perfect fit'. In the winter, you'll appreciate the hot water radiators for warming-up your towels or drying wet mitts and socks. The new boiler provides(truly) unlimited hot water showers. The kitchen is well equipped, making it easy to fix a simple breakfast or a Thanksgiving Feast!...moreless

About the owner: Nature, Adventure, Tranquility, Beauty and Comfort. Inspired by my own travels and world explorations, with a desire to share some of my favorite and special places with others, I created OurSecretGetaways. It is with pleasure that I offer you the opportunity to create your own experiences and adventures within our getaways. Being traveler myself, I know what I appreciate when I stay at different destinations. My goal is to use my traveler's intuition to provide the best atmosphere for our guests.
I strive to create in each of our retreats a unique experience, reflecting the ambiance of the area, the cultural character and natural environment. My joy springs from feeling the soul of each area and property and infusing that spirit artfully throughout the home, the landscaping and amenities provided. A confluence of nature's beauty with interior design is communicated through color harmony, original art, music collections, and the intimate warmth of a loved home. Whichever secret getaway that you may choose be assured that you will find a home where you can fully relax, be comfortable and bask in the sensual pleasures of the unique aesthetic aspects of both the interior décor and the charming gardens, while drawing strength and energy from the breathtaking beauty of the surrounding habitat.
