Perfect for a weekend away!

  • 5 of 5

So there were 8 of us staying at Kathy's for a weekend. We had a great time! The house had everything you needed. Plenty of beds and bathrooms! The whole place was very clean as well.

On our second night there the weather took a drastic turn, from 60 to 20 degrees over night. We got half a foot of snow and the power was out for in the entire town for almost a full 24 hours. Kathy was great about it, she kept checking in with us and sent her husband (an Olympic ski jumper) over with a bunch of flashlights. We made the most of it and had a great time even without power!

All of us agreed that we would easily stay there again!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much ! You are very kind and I believe the village electric is working on this so that in the future this kind of thing does not effect the whole village !! So glad you all made the most of it and made it memorable !! Remember to mention this to me as you will get a better rate next visit for all you went through ! Kathy and Joe Lamb

This is a nice property in a classic ADK setting

  • 4 of 5

This is a good sized house that comfortably handled 6 adults and 1 teenager for a ski/hockey tournament weekend.

The beds were comfortable, plenty of linens, and a good sized kitchen with everything we needed.

Although the temperatures dropped below zero and the wind howled for a 2 nights and 1 day, the house was warm and comfortable.

Access to town is easy, it is walkable to grocery/convenience store if the weather was a little warmer.

All in all, Mossy Rocks is a great place to stay in a great location. Just watch out for the Yeti that seemed to hang around the front door...i think he was thirsty.
