"We booked the forest cabin for a one night weekend getaway. It was just two of us and being from Manhattan, we didn't know what to expect and weren't too prepared for camping, but we had amazing stay as the Forest Cabin had everything we could possibly need. Despite no electricity or running water at the cabin, the main house is a short walk away where you could use a flushable toilet and shower. Everything was very clean and extremely organized, and the "kitchen" was well-equipped with a grill, sink, pots & pans, flatware, paper plates, etc. We had a cozy stay and awoke to only the sound of birds chirping. Karen was a great host - so sweet and accommodating. We plan on returning soon."

"What a great house. We have rented in lake placid several times and this was by far our favorite home. It had everything we need to make it feel like home. The kids had plenty of space to hangout without disturbing each other. It is clean, comfortable and close to town and whiteface. We couldn't make the fireplace work but other than that everything was perfect for our weekend."

"We stayed in the Elms cottage with 2 other couples for a long weekend. The house was spotless! It was big enough to accommodate 3 couples and then some. Everyone had their own rooms and bathrooms. The fire place kept us warm each evening. It was a quick walk across the pond into town and the Lake Placid Brewer was right at the end of the street!! I would absolutely recommend staying in the Elms to anyone looking to get away and stay in a place that feels like home! We will be back for sure!"

"What sets Healing Wood apart from other vacation rentals is the attention to detail of the furnishings, décor and setting. The house retains the charm of a bygone era, from the kitchen's cast iron stove to the porcelain wash basins. (There are fully modern appliances, so don't worry about building a fire to heat up the tea kettle!) The well stocked library will keep inquisitive minds occupied for days, all while reading in the warmth of the late afternoon sun streaming through the French doors. It's like walking back in time to your grandparent's home.
The home is located a short walk from Upper Saranac lake and within easy drive of the villages of Tupper, Saranac and Placid. Recommend the boat tour on Placid to see the grand camps, including Kate Smith's camp. The Wild Center is a gem in nearby Tupper and aviation buffs can arrange flights out of Adirondack Regional (KSLK) to see the high peaks from up on higher! Hiking the Ampersand trail to the summit provided a view that was worth every rock and foot of elevation gain along the way.
A memorable vacation in a special home, we hope to return again to Healing Wood."
