  • Wonderful family rental, close to village yet private

    "This house was a good fit for two families plus grandparents. The common rooms were large enough to accommodate our party of ten if we all wanted to be together, but there was plenty of room for us to spread out when we wanted time apart! The house was just as shown in the pictures. The covered patio and outdoor fire pit are really great features you won't find at other rentals. The location is fantastic if you want to be within walking distance of the village, but still have quiet and privacy. It was ~ five to seven minute walk to the village and Shephard's Park. We needed a stroller for the younger ones in our party (~ 3 years old). The Shephard's Park beach was great for the kids (age 3 - 7). There was no need to go to Million Dollar Beach. We found the beach rules to be very strict relative to what we are used to, and did not spend a lot of time there. Claire was very helpful before and during our vacation. The house felt like a home, and was nicely decorated. We would recommend this property to others. The Prospect Mountain hike (just behind the house) was very nice, but I would not recommend for small children. We really enjoyed Capri's pizza on the strip. We saw the Thursday night fireworks from Neptune's restaurant - great place for the whole family. If you are looking to get out of the village check out the Painted Pony Rodeo - also great for families."

  • A very nice location, house, accommodations & view

    "A perfect house just outside of the village and a short walk to Enchanted Forest Water Park. You have a perfect view on the back deck of the water and it's a short walk down to the dock. We rented a boat around the corner and tied up to the dock for a few days. Our girls swam, fished and took out the kayak to keep busy as we had very nice weather. The house was also very well kept and stocked with towels, sheets, laundry det, dishwasher det ect... We would not hesitate to come back and I'm not sure if we could find a better place. We also visited Red Dog Tavern in Inlet which was very good, Billy's Italian which was your typical quick, nothing fancy Italian and our favorite Sister's Bistro. Sisters is very nice and they use fresh ingredients for a very tasty meal. Also if you like ice cream I would go to Inlet at Northern Lights as they have very good Gelato.. Ciao"

  • Lovely home, but.....

    "We rented this house this summer- two families of four. The house itself is nice and well constructed. The kitchen is well equipped. The beds are ok, not particularly comfortable. The only issues I had were the proximity of this house to the neighbors- we come annually to the Adirondacks and had never been in a lake house that is so close to the one we rented in this price range. We could hear them talking, and we wanted our dogs (which we paid extra to come) to be able to swim as the Adirondacks is normally a very dog-friendly place but not these neighbors. I would recommend an alternative rental if you have dogs as they must be leashed all the time. Also, the view of the lake is of a bay. Not the open lake. If you are looking for a wide view, this home does not have one. Features like the outdoor fire ring were fun."

  • Beautiful Home and Perfect Location!

    "We spent an amazing week at the Sci Chalet! We felt right at home the minute we arrived. The home is the ideal adirondack get-away with an absolutely perfect deck and extremely comfortable authentic adirondack furniture. The house is very well appointed with everything you could possibly need and has a great layout for enjoying time with family. We enjoyed many meals cooked on the new grill! The location could not have been better as it is tucked away on a very peaceful street right on the river but is only a few blocks to the shops and restaurants. In fact, you can walk to pretty much anything (including the canoe/kayak rental place)! We were very sad to depart and hope to come back again next year! Thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home!"
