Beautiful house in a nice quiet location. Christopher was awesome and very responsive to questions and the coffee and syrup gifts were a nice touch. Would stay there again in a heart beat.

Perfect House, Lovely Setting

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful with great attention to detail. True Adirondack charm. Well stocked. Everything we needed. Lovely, private location with a grand deck and a view of the mountains. A short, steep walk to a brook, which our kids loved exploring. A 4 minute drive to a wonderful market and easy access to all hiking and Lake Placid. Would definitely visit again!

Nice house, thoughtful owners

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this house. The house is comfortable and quiet, close to town and hikes. The owners made sure everything was working well for us. We would happily rent there again.

Luxury in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

My sister and her 2 teen age children flew up from Florida to meet us (we drove in from Buffalo) to spend 5 fun-filled days in the Lake Placid area. After a busy day exploring and hiking it was such a pleasure to return to the beauty, comfort and stillness of this property. The house is beautifully appointed with all the comforts of home, in actuality it felt like home after a day. We loved having our coffee on the porch in the morning and campfires in the evening. We only have 2 suggestions. Since it has been a hot summer even in the Adirondacks, you should bring some portable fans since they are not provided as well as folding chairs to sit around the campfire. Chris the owner was kind enough to allow us to bring the garage bench outside to use, but chairs would be helpful. We highly recommend this piece of paradise and would like to thank Chris and his wife for sharing their beautiful home.

Beautiful house. Private location. Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Great house. Lots of detail and craftsmanship. Private location. Nice big deck. Comfortable sleeping arrangements and space. Bathroom on each floor. Not having A/C is most often not an issue with cool nights, but upstairs rooms can get warm on occasionally hot evenings. I would definitely rebook and stay again. Close to Keene, close to hiking, close to Lake Placid and a really nice house to enjoy the Adirondacks.
