Beautiful views and a great space full of amenities.

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay with a large group of 12 - plenty of room for everyone. Very clean and well equipped, especially the kitchen. Owner was very helpful and made us feel welcome. Highly recommend to anyone wanting great views and a great time in the Adirondacks.

Quiet, secluded, relaxation at it's best!

  • 5 of 5

We visited for our annual "friendsgiving" getaway with 7 adults and 4 dogs. The house was perfect for us. It is comfortable, stocked with games and entertainment, has plenty of space, and every amenity that we needed. The house is close to Lake Placid for a day trip, but it is very secluded and quiet, which was perfect for our getaway. We enjoyed seeing a clear view of the night sky with only the sound of the leaves rustling in the wind. I highly recommend this property! Definitely follow the owner's directions to the house, as your GPS likely won't be able to find it.

Unbelievable amazing property, so much fun

  • 5 of 5

This property is situated in the woods with views of the mountain. The house is so well maintained, there was Harmon bluetooth speaker that rocked the house, 3 large screen flat tv's, Xbox360 with 2- game dvd, apple tv, dozen or more board games, hot tub, sauna plus pingpong and fooz table. There was NEST thermostat plus dual pane windows that controlled the temp so well, we did not feel the 5-20F temp outside.

There was so much to do in the house that we barely went out. The kids were very busy and so were the adults. We loved the house and with 16 of us, we still had enough place in all levels. The windows in the living room by the fireplace was a favorite spot for us.

This was one of the best houses we have ever rented.

Great property and owner

  • 5 of 5

We're a group of 10 guys that travel to the Adirondack region every year and have for the past 11 years. Each year we choose a new place to say. I must say, we were so pleased with this property, the land, the area, and Gene, that we may just book again. Stay here and you won't regret it.

The Only Place To Stay In The ADK

  • 5 of 5

Our annual trip to the high peaks region was the best one yet. It’s in my opinion the best area in the adirondacks, and to cap that off with a beautiful home, that’s clean and accommodating, it doesn’t get much better. Gene is a true class act and always there when you need him. I don’t even bother looking other places because I know I won’t get the service that he provides. Looking forward to a lifelong relationship and keeping our annual vacation going for many many years to come. Thanks Gene
