Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of this house don't do it justice, it is beautiful. The decor is beautiful and very comfortable. We had 3 families staying in the house with young adults and small children. There was plenty of space for everyone, 2 game rooms, lots of becdrooms and baths, very large kitchen with everything a large group could possibly need. We really enjoyed the large front porch , the picnic style tables on back porch for dining and badminton. I highly recommend this home and hope we are lucky enough to visit Lake Placid again. Lake Placid is a great vacation destination with many activities for all ages! Donna couldn't have been nicer and very helpful with any question! Melonie

Owner's Response: Thanks Melonie! Your family was so fun to host. And Derek, our caretaker, really enjoyed interacting with such a gracious Southern family, sharing fishing & hiking tips. Kudos to you for exploring the country through annual family reunions. We hope you keep up this tradition and someday return to Lake Placid:)

This home was a perfect upscale experience for my family and friends. We are returning vacationers to this home and lake placid and are never disappointed with the amenities and upkeep on this gorgeous vacation rental. When we walk thru the door this home becomes part of our vacation get away. No expense is spared which makes for a truly enjoyable experience. There is plenty of room for all and the owners are always willing to accommodate. I highly recommend this rental property!

HighPeakHouse was amazing and beautiful beyond our wildest dreams.

  • 5 of 5

This was the best family vacation that we have experienced. We have done family cruises, beach house rentals, Family Reunions but by far this was the best. This home was filled with the most detailed amenities for both comfort and entertainment. It was so nice to have fresh snow coming down and the view was breathtaking. The owners and caretakers were wonderful and so accommodating. There was nothing that lacked in this beautiful home.

Our extended family of 15 booked the house for a combined 80th/50th birthday celebration over the October long weekend. The house is absolutely gorgeous, and ideal for a large group. It is so thoughtfully and generously appointed; I can't think of a single thing (except maybe a lemon squeezer for our boozy cocktails!!) that it is lacking... We had an incredible stay, and would not hesitate to recommend this property to other visitors. 5++++++ stars!
