About Jeffrey & Ellen Taylor
My wife & I grew up in the hustle & bustle of New Jersey/New York City. we rented the home once a year & when it went on the market, we jumped at the opportunity to buy. We hope you enjoy the Chalet as much as we do.
Why Jeffrey & Ellen Taylor chose Johnsburg
This Chalet is right in the middle of the action.You have all the ski areas ,Schroon lake to the north, Lake George to the south, Lake Placid one hour north, white water rafting on the Hudson, hiking trails all around, fine restaurants at Lake George. The Chalet is hidden on 10 acres of solitude. It's a home away from home
What makes this House unique
We fell in love with the chalet because there are no real neighbors.

Cozy chalet in the woods
Our family loved our experience in this chalet. We went with the intention of finding a place near to Gore mountain so we could all ski, and the cabin's location was about an 8 minute drive from driveway to driveway. There was plenty of room for the 7 adults and 2 kids, and we still had a free bedroom in the bottom floor that we didn't end up using. The cabin was cozy and super warm, especially with the wood stove going that just made the ambiance all that much better. Loved that there was a ton of firewood stacked in a shelter on the other side of the driveway. It is certainly a dog friendly home with a walled off area in the basement, some dog toys and leash available. We ended up bringing our dog's kennel to keep him in while we weren't home, just so it was consistent for him but having the option was nice. We made some great family memories here and can't thank you enough. If we come back out this way we will definitely want to stay here again.
Cozy Ski Chalet!
We spent 7 nights and skied Gore during the day. Coming back (10 minute drive) from Gore after a day of skiing was just so convenient and welcoming. We especially enjoyed the huge dining table that we all could gather round and enjoy breakfast and dinners. We fired up the wood stove but only for a little atmosphere as the heating system worked excellent. It is located close enough to North Creek (Tops Supermarket) that a short diversion from Gore on the way back from skiing was all we needed to replenish depleted beverage supplies!
Thanks for the cozy accommodations! We would definitely book a return trip!
Close to Gore mounta8n
Lovely cabin. Lots of room for my family and their friends and our puppy.
Great vacation home
We loved the home it was clean, the beds were comfortable and had everything we needed. Close to everything, skiing was great. We’ll be back again for sure.
Awesome family retreat experience
One of the best log cabin experiences ever. Thoroughly enjoyed the comfortable and cosy cabin. Campfire experience was just amazing
Perfect for us!
Great secluded spot for my wife and me and our two pooches. We found excellent hiking and Mt. Biking at nearby Gore Mt. Even though one of the day's was a rain out, we found plenty to do in the cabin with all the games and books. The kitchen had everything we needed and we loved the countertops. All in all a great stay! highly recommended.
