Well cared for and clean. The home was perfect for us -three adults and two young children.

  • 5 of 5

Kathy is a terrific host and communicates well. The house was laid out perfectly for us and it was conveniently located near the Olympic venues, Main Street, shopping and restaurants. It was an in easy drive to Saranac Lake also. I like to walk a lot and there was a lot to explore.
