Wonderful wedding weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay for wedding weekend! The house is beautiful and our stay was incredibly comfortable. Gene was super helpful throughout the entire process from helping us sort out distances to wedding events before we even booked, to being flexible with check-in times, to everything throughout our stay! At one point the hot tub got a little finicky. I texted Gene, he got back to me with minutes, and we were able to sort out the issue over text and the hot tub worked fine after that. Overall, all 14 of us that stayed there were happy and had an awesome time.

Beautiful house with large backyard and plenty of rooms/beds.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for 4 nights over Labor Day Weekend with 12 friends and had a great time. The house was very clean, spacious, and there were plenty of beds for all of us, with some to spare. The owner Gene was very helpful and always quick to respond to any questions that came up during our stay.

Our group is definitely looking forwards to staying here again in the future.

Fantastic home for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Ebs View Lodge was wonderful! The house was very nice and spacious. The layout allowed for plenty of room for our whole family. The outdoors were lovely. Morning coffee and evening appetizers on the deck were so relaxing. We really enjoyed the large fire pit in the evenings. Our kids loved the walk down to the river to play.

Gene, the owner, was very nice, extremely helpful and accessible at any time with answers to our questions.

We would certainly return on a future vacation!

Simply staying at this stunning home is a perfect vacation destination.

  • 5 of 5

Having just shared a beautiful vacation experience with my family of 8 adults and 4 children at this amazing home, we decided, though there were wonderful views and activities to do in the area, you never really needed to leave this house! Attention to details were everywhere in this spacious home...large parking areas for many vehicles. .a beautifully maintained log home with a covered wrap around wide deck with a gas grill , Adirondack chairs and a dining table with 6 cushioned chairs in the back overlooking a large open yard with a fire pit stocked with wood tucked under the pine trees provided a perfect end to our evenings ...once inside the home,.there was a welcoming entrance with numerous hand huned pegs for coats... soaring woodcrafted ceilings......large bedrooms with ceiling fans, bureaus and full closets on all floors... a well stocked granite countertop, green cabinet kitchen with numerous pots and pans, dishware, glassware, and silverware...comfortable dining chairs..overstuffed pillows and soft throws on all of the large upholstered couches and even a chair that seats 2!...a king bed master suite with a huge walk-in tiled shower, jetted tub, an abundance of thick towels, and a conveniently placed washer/dryer in its own closet...the 2nd floor had a wide open loft space with the 3 oversized bedrooms and 2 bathrooms opening onto it. A desk / office area in the loft provided a "work from home " space to several family members...then the lower level was the party area!...sauna, ping pong and game tables, Xbox, tv, bedroom, another washer dryer... AND access to huge hot tub with overhead mood

lighting ! An absolutely gorgeous house. I honestly can't think of one thing that I would change or add.

Best of all, we felt already welcomed before we even got there by the owner, Gene. He was quick to respond to our many, many questions with thorough answers, not just one liners. He wanted to make sure we were comfortable with everything before and during our stay. It is obvious that he is proud of his home and that he sincerely cares that you are happy with it, too. It was a wonderful adventure! I highly recommend this home.

Thank you, Gene.

Old Eb home

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home in a remote area of the Adirondacks. Anywhere we drove had beautiful vistas. The house was very clean and had super comfy beds.

We had several families with the teenagers and young children and the house promoted fun for all with a great kitchen to hang in. The owner Gene was a pleasure to deal with. He responds to emails and phone calls immediately. He is a very reasonable owner. Would definitely rent from him again.
