Great Experience Great location close to Lake Placid
"This Rental is gorgeous. We were a group of 12/3 families . We rented both houses and had 3 kitchens, with 5 t bedrooms total. The house is within 5-20 mins from everything. Whiteface mountain, Santa's Workshop, Swimming Gorges, Biking and hiking trails are all within 5 miles away. The town of Wilmington which is 3 miles away has 5 Star restaurants and a grocery store.
The houses were perfectly decorated and super clean with all the comforts of home. The Adirondack furniture and décor made us feel like we were in one of the finest lodges. Each house was very well situated to give everyone privacy. The largest kitchen had room to seat everyone for group dinners and entertainment.
We especially enjoyed the outdoor fire pits in the evening and the skiing at Whiteface Mountain during the day. We loved the quaint town of Lake Placid with all of the shops and restaurants.
The owner was just a phone call away if we needed anything and she was very helpful in suggesting places of interest.
We will definitely be back."

"We spent the weekend with friends and had a wonderful time. All the comforts of home, but with plenty of privacy, a billion stars, and the beautiful sounds of nature. Only minutes from Wilmington for basic supplies, and less than 20 minutes into Lake Placid for touristy stuff. :-) We've already determined that we will return... Thank you to the owners for such a wonderful place."

"My wife and I took my parents up to Black Brook Lodge for a three-day weekend and we all loved it. The house is comfortable and low key but also features an amazing kitchen with first-rate appliances, cutlery, silverware, etc. It's a perfect combination of luxury and rustic. The house is near to excellent hikes and walks and the only sound you can hear is the nearby Saranac River, but you're also close to Lake Placid and Plattsburgh in case you want to see a film or shop or go out to eat (there's also ping pong, an excellent DVD collection, and a good library for indoor distractions). The property has extensive frontage on the Saranac River, with a number of excellent fishing spots within walking distance from the house. There are more fishing spots within a short drive, and it's 20 minutes to the Ausable River, which is one of the great trout streams in America. There's something for everyone and I can't recommend it highly enough."

"Our Father's Day fishing group arrived just as the heavens opened, and for two days we had sheets of rain keeping us housebound - but what a house. The fully stocked kitchen featured a new oven. In honor of the new deer head mounted in the great room, our first dinner was venison steaks. On our third day the rivers came down and we were able to leave the backgammon, jigsaw puzzles and poker and head out for some delightful fly fishing. But our favorite activity was gathering on the remarkable screened porch after yet another marvelous meal and recounting our fishing experiences of the day. We're already planning our "threepeat" of a Keene Valley fishing trip centered at Aunt Dora's cabin."
