Great rental!!

  • 4 of 5

The home is filled with all the little things that make a nice stay even better. There is a portable Bluetooth speaker (we are getting one!), marshmallow sticks at the fire, extra cleaning/paper items around the home...the week we stayed, it was rainy and/or cold so we had a lot of togetherness time inside-this house provided all the entertainment to keep everyone occupied.

Beautifully restored/preserved early 1900s home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Old Forge. This home had everything we needed, lots of space for everyone. We were there for a snowmobile trip. The geothermal fueled hot tub remained piping hot even in negative temperatures, a life saver for our old backs!!!

The owners were very accommodating and were available for any questions we had.

For our 30th birthday a large group of friends came up to Old Forge New York for a weekend of snow activities. The house was an older home, however is very well renovated. Each room had its own thermostat perfect for groups where some prefer it hot and others cool. There are three full bathrooms in the rental. Unfortunately we did not know that one of them has a soaking tub with only a handheld showerhead, so it was a bit difficult to use and most of us avoided it. The soaking tub also used all the hot water in the house at one point, however we had hot water again within 15 minutes. The beds were okay.

The kitchen was amazing. At breakfast I sat looking out at a panoramic view of the snow coming down. We brought our own cast iron skillets for certain meals we prepped, however the kitchen itself is very well stocked with a variety of pots, pans, and utensils. The fire from the range is rather weak compared to the one I have at home, however it did the job. The refrigerator easily held enough food for the 12 of us for 4 meals.

The plan was for one group to go snowmobiling, one group to go snow tubing and a third to go snowboarding. The weekdays before our weekend trip had dumped over a foot of snow on the area which was great for our activities, however the snowtubing hills still didn’t open. The group that was supposed to go snowboarding did not have winter tires and ended up staying at the rental as well. The group that went snowmobiling had a blast.

Things to note. The caretaker has a dog. Our friends arrived early on Friday and were sitting on a couch only to find themselves covered in dog hair they couldn’t see when they sat down. One of them needed a bunch of allergy meds to clear things up so he could sleep that night. If you do not have snow tires or at least an all wheel drive with decent tires you will not be able to climb the snow covered hill to the rental! One of our friends had to leave his car near the side of the road and walk to the rental. The hot tub, when low on water, will spray water at the electrical box next to it which is rather unsettling. Make sure the water level is high enough before you turn it on. The back door did not lock, we had someone at the rental constantly, but I can see this being unsettling for some people.
