"Very nice condo above gourmet bakery in Keene, NY. Everything is new and very clean. Convenient location to Lake Placid and hiking in the Adirondacks. Was a very enjoyable stay. Even has a garage for the car."

"This was our 3rd time to Shorecrest and I wouldn't stay anywhere else - even if it were free!
Start with the location - it can't get any better. You can watch the activity of main street, or walk right down and take part in it - and continue around Mirror Lake. I'm not a huge outdoorsy person, but with this access, I am walking all the time in LP. The view from the porch is fantastic. If I couldn't leave the house, I would just plant myself here and have a great time. We enjoyed the music from the bandshell right from our porch. Parking can be a problem for Main Street, but with this house, you don't have to think about it since Main Street is a few steps away. (By the way, you can walk up the hill and get to a nice little park with a playground for kids. You can also walk up the hill to the Catholic Church, a great coffee shop, etc.)
Now, for the house itself. For our huge group of adults and kids ranging from 14 to 9 months, it is perfect. The bedrooms work out great. The bunk room is perfect for kids and the master has a side room for more kids if needed. It works great for all of us. The kitchen has everything you need. The living room and dining room fit lots of people and are very comfortable - though if it's summer, you'll want to be on the porch anyway (which has plenty of seating). Oh, and for those from the south like us, you'll enjoy the air conditioning in the bedrooms. The owners are completely accessible and ready to address any needs you have.
Honestly, I can't be more positive about this house. I look forward to our trip here every year. I can't imagine anything that would make it better."

"My husband and I came to Old Forge for our first time, along with our four children (ages 3-9), for a snowmobile weekend. Barb and Doug met us at the house upon arrival and my first impression of anything is that these folks are two of the kindest, most accommodating and helpful people I've ever met; the kind of people you would love to have in your own family. As for the home - I fell in love immediately. Its so beautiful and so charming, so many lovely details that you only find in a home this age. There is nothing 'modern' about the architecture or style, which is precisely the appeal. You feel like you're back in time, from the beautiful wallpaper to the gorgeous wood trim and details; the glass and brass doorknobs, the hard word flooring and beautiful wood built-ins. People who own homes like this tend to live in them, preserve them, and rarely share their beauty. Barb and Doug open their home to guests lucky enough to find the time to visit. Our children loved the home and were enamored with endless 'hide-n-seek' possibilities; none of us wanted to leave... so the day after we arrived home we booked another weekend! One last comment, and I've read several of the same - the house is SPOTLESS. I mean to say, I walked around in light blue and white socks for 4 days and there was not a hint of dirt on any of my socks - MY SOCKS!!! I don't even know how that's possible! So if you're looking for cleanliness, comfort, charm... a place where you KNOW you want to go back to as soon as you can... THIS is your place! Thank you Doug and Barb, it was a pleasure and we look forward to staying in your beautiful home again!"
