Beautiful rental, definitely will be back.

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't ask for anything more. Love the area, plenty of space for our group of 8 adults, 6 kids and dogs. You could easily fit 30 tents in the yard if needed for more people. Nice fire pit , hot tub and wrap around porch. If I had to dig deep for any kind of complaint, just to be fair and balenced, I'd say the tv was a little screwy. I think it's a bad connection in the back. We'll be back for sure!

A perfect place for large groups

  • 5 of 5

10 of us rented this home the week of July 15th - July 22nd 2017. The place is immaculate and very well appointed. The large kitchen counter was great for meals together while the bedrooms on multiple levels gave everyone enough privacy. The location is also perfect as it is close enough to Lake Placid without having to go through the heart of town to get away. This was key for us as we did day trips every day and enjoyed the large fire pit every night!

Perfect balance of out of the way and convenient to everything!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome time for the ten of us plus two chihuahuas! The house was immaculate and the kitchen was well-equipped. The location was ideal--quick drives whether we were heading to Lake Placid or into Keene Valley to check off another high peak, and the hot tub at the end of a long day hiking was quite popular. I loved the quiet, private setting and of course, the photos do not do justice to this beautiful home. Thank you for sharing these lovely accommodations.

Wonderful house for a large family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Modern home with all conveniences with rustic charm, private setting, and good views. Nice to come home from a cold, rainy hike to choose between the hot tub, steam room or sauna.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

The Whiteface Mountain Chalet was in a perfect location for the six of us to ride our motorcycles through the Adirondacks and even into Canada. The house was very clean and we enjoyed the sauna, steam shower, hot tub and firepit outside. It was a pleasure dealing with Todd and Kim
