This was our second stay at The Big Red House with family (brothers/spouses/cousins). We went skiing at McCauley and snowmobiling. We could walk downtown. It was great to enjoy the Olympics on cable TV too this year! Overall, a great little vacation. Hope to be back next year! Thank you!!

Just Like Home; Just Like Family

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family stayed in this house for a week over the 4th of July. Our experience right from the start with Doug and Barb was exceptional. They fully accommodated our initial arrangements when we had a few changes. They welcomed us with "open arms" and a bottle of wine upon our arrival! And they were available during the week if we needed them. The house is just lovely- very well appointed and equipped. There was nothing we needed. The yard was wonderful for the kids. And we all loved the visit from the deer ever morning and afternoon. Parking was adequate for the guests we had during the week. And the location is ideal- a couple blocks from the main street that goes through Old Forge. We could get to everything without getting in the car. I fully recommend this property. We stay there again in a heart beat. If felt like home in more ways than one.

Awesome Adirondack Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Doug & Barb for sharing your beautiful home. We had an awesome week. The location was ideal for our multi-generational group. We hiked, biked, canoed, swam and shopped all the gift shops. We enjoyed a couple of meals out (Stillwater Inn has awesome chowder) and did some eating in too. The kitchen had everything we needed to make our own meals. My folks (85 & 89) thoroughly enjoyed your place - especially the daily visits from the deer. We visited the Goodsell Museum and my mom was happy to find some info about the Cohassette Hotel where her mother worked back in 1920. Being avid campers we enjoyed topping most evenings off with a campfire - thanks for having the backyard fire pit. It's a vacation we'll long remember.
