About Mary and Brett Bousquet

We love everything about the Adirondacks and Lake Placid - a great small town with so much to do year-round. This home is perfect for us - with it's close proximity to Main Street but yet private enough to spend a quite evening on the deck. We look forward to sharing our knowledge of the area so you can get the most out of your visit to the region. My husband is a life long resident of Lake Placid and I have lived here for over 20 years.

Mary and Brett Bousquet purchased this apartment in 1996

I know, perfect is a big word, but Peakview truly was the perfect place for our family of four to enjoy a special weekend in Lake Placid! From the start, and throughout our stay, Mary and Brett were easy to communicate with and responsive to our questions. The apartment is above their house, so we had the pleasure of meeting them too. Their warmth extends to the apartment itself -- it truly feels like a home. Walking into Peakview for the first time, we were immediately struck by two things: From the kitchen, to bathroom, to living areas, the apartment is immaculate (it is clear what the owners describe is true, everything is washed between guests including duvet covers and throws), and the wonderful view of the Adirondacks from the living room and both bedrooms made us feel that we truly had come to the mountains!

The location couldn't have been better for us; we easily walked to everything in town, but Peakview is just a block south of the start of the main street through town, so it is incredibly quite! Also, we could easily drive out of town when we were ready to head to Mt. Van Hoevenberg for a day of nordic skiing. One night we walked to a restaurant for dinner, one night we stayed in (the kitchen is fully stocked!) and after dinner walked to the speed skating oval in the center of town for the public skating. This town is a winter wonderland and Peakview is a great base from which to enjoy all Lake Placid has to offer! My only hesitation in writing a glowing review, is that I'm afraid the many positive reviews may make it progressively harder to reserve this property ... and if we are fortunate to be able to return to Lake Placid we wouldn't want to stay anywhere else!!

Cozy apartment in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this warm and cozy apartment while we were in Lake Placid skiing at Whiteface during Christmas break.

Everything is as it appears in the photos. Tastefully decorated and super clean. It was well appointed with sheets and plenty of towels. The kitchen had all of the necessities one could want.

The location on the road to Whiteface was idea for a ski getaway. It was too cold to walk into town when we were there but is was just a short distance to many restaurants and shops.

Mary the owner was terrific. She gave us tons of ideas for activities to keep us busy in the bitter cold. She went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable during our stay.

BEST place in town to stay hands down! Location was awesome could walk to everything. The apartment was very nicely appointed, very warm and inviting with all the comforts of home. Private off street parking, Mary and Brett were very easy to communicate with and they were available if we needed anything. Can't say enough how much we enjoyed our stay here and will definitely be back! :)
