Pets are ok based on pre approval. This home has been undergoing renovations with an all new second floor. That is new bedrooms and bathrooms from top to bottom. the owner wishes to keep the ADK charm of the original cape style and keep the rates low for families to come and enjoy the ADKs with out breaking the bank. You will not find this home as a hotel or a modern sheek place to stay. The at home feel with return tenants that appreciate the style is what we are striving for. Make yourself at home while visiting the ADK's. With an all new second level, the bedroom still have room size rugs in stead of wall to wall carpeting as this has been quite the process.New siding, windows, main level flooring, decks, added bathrooms etc are just a few of the completed projects with more to come. Come and enjoy with your family at a family home. The pictures on the website are accurate.

Why Kevin Ouellette chose Johnsburg

This property was bought originally to run as a bed and breakfast. Do to changes in the family it was not possible to make this dream come true. Instead it was decided to open up the second level and do a major remodel job. The hope was to provide a family getaway home people could vacation at with comfort. It does not have the brass ans sassy of today's modern upscale rental but more the charm and history of an Adirondack family home. We want families to come and enjoy the space. we just ask that is treated with respect.

What makes this house unique

The benefits of this home is its location and set up. large enough for a large family or two or three small ones. This home is also cozy enough for that couple to get away. we are close to most major attractions, yet far enough away to escape the hustle and bustle.

Convenient and pretty much exactly as described

  • 4 of 5

Overall we had a solid experience at the rental. Kevin made everything extremely easy and we had no real problems all weekend. The house is super conveniently located and the driveway was plowed for us after the big Nor'easter. The house definitely has that down home, lived-in feel and does not have any bells and whistles. The living room furniture was a little more run-down than expected and there were some collections of dead flies in some of the bedrooms. Having spent the last 25 summers living in the 'Dacks, we know the flies just come with the territory. The individual bathrooms for each bedroom was a nice touch.

Warm and cozy

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this home. The living room furniture and kitchen is a little worn out but the house was in the middle of ongoing renovations so I am sure it will be updated eventually. It really was warm and cozy for our family of 7. The big living room table, the many bedrooms with private baths, two couches and fireplace was perfect. It was great being close to Gore Mountain and the town of North Creek. We would definitely rent this home again, winter or summer. Kevin, the Owner, was very helpful in planning our stay and was very accessible when we had questions during our stay.

Great for multi-family ski trip

  • 5 of 5

We just had a wonderful ski trip to Gore with a couple other families plus 2 dogs and this house was perfect for us. It is clean but comfortable so you can really relax there. At the top of the center hall stairs are 4 bedrooms, each with a double bed, it's own brand new bathroom, its own controllable heating vent, and it's own sliding glass door out to a deck/balcony which made each room beautiful and sunlit. Those rooms housed the adults. At the top of the back staircase there is 1 bedroom with a twin bed and off that room is another bedroom with a double bed and a double futon plus plenty of floor space for 2-3 twin aerobeds which we brought with us. Those 2 rooms share a bathroom and were a perfect hang out for the kids! It is exactly 8 miles (10 min) from the house to the base of Gore. The charming town of North Creek is between Gore and the house, with several restaurants, a Rite Aid pharmacy and a Tops grocery store. Kevin was very helpful and responded very quickly to any questions via email (good wifi in the house). There were very few rules and instructions, which made life simple. Almost everything was self-explanatory. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking. The washer and dryer worked very well. We got several pretty good tv channels (even the SyFy channel for the requisite New Year's Weekend Twilight Zone marathon!) and a DVD player. There was wood for the wood stove but we were always too wiped out to make a fire, and the electric heat was good. There were plenty of sheets and towels for everyone. There is a circular driveway which is almost completely flat, and right on Route 28. The view of the Hudson River across the street was gorgeous! In summary, this is a great ski house that comfortably holds a lot of people.

There were 8 of us that stayed from Oct 21st-24th. The house was plenty big and it had everything you need to make your stay great. The décor made you feel right at home. Kevin was very helpful through the whole process from inquiring to booking to checking out. The area was beautiful and the Hudson River was right across the street. We would highly recommend this property and would stay again in a heartbeat.
