Perfect home base for family

  • 5 of 5

This house is exactly as pictured and described. The view is amazing from the moment you wake to the moment you close your eyes at night. The location was perfect for my family to enjoy hiking, swimming, sightseeing and rafting in Saranac Lake, Lake Placid, Keene, Ausable Forks, and Jay. The house interior is not fancy, but there is plenty of room and all needs are met. The yard is a huge plus, especially the porch, grill and fire pit. We appreciated that there was even firewood in the shed! Thank you from myself, my husband, and my children (ages 15, 13, 11, 9).

Beautiful area and plenty to keep busy.

  • 4 of 5

We are a family of 4 (boys ages 8 & 14) and spent an August week at the house. We loved the area-quite beautiful-and had a different activity each day to keep us busy. (Recommend hike up Cascade Peak, The Wild Center and challenge course at Ausable Chasm.) The house worked well for us. Boys each had their own room. Used the lovely patio for our dinners and s'mores each night. It's an easy 15 min drive to lake placid, and we fully appreciated the quiet/private setting of the house at the end of a busy day and its fabulous views. Decor of the house is moderate ( pictures accurate), kitchen easy to work in and the house was very clean. Owner also super responsive during our stay. Overall, it was a great vacation-pretty, many outdoor activities and a house that worked well for our family.

Only downside, which should be noted, if you are an ice cream loving family like ours, the nearby creamery mentioned in other reviews, no longer makes or sells ice cream:(

Wonderful mountain retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (son of college-age, daughter in high school) just spent a week at this great house and we would strongly echo the glowing reviews. Our pattern was to do an activity in the morning/afternoon then head to the excellent butcher in Lake Placid (Kreature) or the Sugar House Creamery down the road to get provisions for dinner. We would then cook in the kitchen and on the outside grill and enjoy the patio and the views, as well as the fire pit.

Highlights included hiking Giant and Cascade mountains (see Lake Placid web-site for directions/details). We found both had spectacular views and were great workouts, Giant in particular was challenging. We also enjoyed kayaking on Lake Placid.

The House is exactly as advertised. Michael responded helpfully to the few questions/requests for recommendations that my wife emailed. We had a fun and relaxing week and highly recommend the house and the area.

Absolutely beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Home is very comfortable, the view is astounding and the "grotto" area is amazing for a family picnic. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Visitors should note that there is no TV in the home, but the internet works well. We would definitely come back to stay!

Amazing views, great house and lots of privacy

  • 5 of 5

Michael's house is just as described. We had a great time here. Spacious and private house perched on the hillside with excellent mountain views. House is well laid out, clean and nicely decorated. Feels remote but is close to many attractions. Definitely made the right decision to stay here.
