"Our kids ran in the Lake Placid Marathon on June 14th so we decided to make it a family weekend. We stayed on the 1st floor at Jack's place from June 12th to June 15th. All I can say is WOW!!! What a wonderful place to stay! Jack has done an amazing job remodeling this house! There was plenty of room for 8 of us to stay comfortably in this spacious home. The kitchen was amazing with a large table that easily seated 8 people!!! The bathrooms were beautiful and the beds were comfortable. Towels, sheets, and necessities were all provided making it so nice to leave the linens at home! We are looking forward to staying here again at some point next summer for another family vacation and will be renting the upstairs as well. We can hardly wait to bring more family with us next time so they can all experience a stay at Jack's place! Jack stopped by to make sure all was well! Rudy was the person who I corresponded with to reserve this home. He was terrific to deal with and kept me informed every step of the way making this a very easy transaction! You don't often find this kind of service! Many thanks to Jack and Rudy!!!"

"I found this little cabin after a long and extensive search. The main reason of our trip was a mini vacation for our daughter who was turning 11. Our kids absolutely loved the trip. We were amazed at how comfortable the cabin was. No cell phone service was a downer but we didn't have an issue with it since we could still use the WiFi. The caves were amazing. We didn't have the chance to explore all of them and only saw a few since our young son is only 6 we were a little afraid of him getting hurt. But the ones we did see were beautiful. And I have to say I'm not a big fan of the dark but for the first time in my life I enjoyed the darkness surrounding us. Woods surrounded us and sitting outside at night watching the stars was something I really enjoyed with my husband. I have never been at more peace than the 2 nights we were here. This is a place I definitely recommend to all who wish to get away from all the chaos of every day life. We are certainly going back for a romantic getaway and hope to do the guided tour then. Great place!!!"

"Island View is a beautiful location that offers a nice, serene getaway. We had it all… glorious setting, pristine water for swimming and kayaking, plus a fire pit for smores and warmth at night when the evening got cooler after sunset. We woke to the lake view and were even blessed with a full moon over it a couple of nights. Boat rental was within walking distance and a discount comes with the rental.
Sandy and Bruce were friendly and very responsive hosts. They made our stay as comfortable as possible. Their kitchen comes well stocked. Everything we needed for cooking was there. We really only had to bring towels, sheets and ourselves. We had a wonderful week and would recommend Island View to anyone interested in a lovely lake vacation."

"The home and property are beautiful! More important the home is comfy...lovely sofas and chairs, comfy beds with high quality linens, a large table to for your family, large decks to relax on and enjoy the view. The best thing about this property if you have small children is that the lake is shallow and clear for about 50 feet from the shore. It was perfect for our children who were 1, 3, 4, 5 and 6. They spent hours taking trips out to the rock, floating in tubes, jumping off the dock and just having a blast in the lake. The 5 and 6 year old mastered the kayaks, what a thrill. The adults enjoyed sitting on the deck in the morning and evening, hanging on the dock, playing games around the big table after the kids went to sleep and peacefully kayaking around the lake. We had a fun and relaxing vacation. A bonus was the fourth of July fireworks, they were awesome! Judie is very helpful with any question you may have, she really likes to make sure you have all that you need. The paper goods she supplied were a big help. We will be back!"
