About Stacy Spletzer

My husband, daughter and I are Americans (Chicagoans) living and working in Montreal, Canada. When we realized that the beautiful Adirondack Mountains were an easy 2 hour drive from Montreal, we bought our rustic cabin in the woods in 2005 and have enjoyed countless weekends of skiing, biking, hiking and pure enjoyment. We bought the Scenic Point Chalet in 2010 so that we can share the region with others. We have enjoyed meeting many like minded, interesting and active people because of the chalet which has been a fun return.

Why Stacy Spletzer chose Jay

The Scenic Point Chalet is a rustic retreat. We fell in love with its multiple levels and two living areas which allow two families to have privacy or even better, for the adults to enjoy the upstairs living area and the kids downstairs. There is also something warm and inviting about its ambiance ... especially when the fire is roaring. We are quite proud of the chalet and the reviews we have rec'd since 2010.

What makes this chalet unique

The chalet backs up to Clark Mountain which provides hours of adventure for those that want to take it. Miles and miles of x-country ski trails are within walking distance from the chalet's front door. Lake Eaton is also an easy stroll for a picnic, playground, tennis game or canoe ride. Also, one of the best benefits is that it is 'quiet' ... great if you just want to get away from the city noise and get back to nature.

cozy yet spacious place that i wish i owned

  • 5 of 5

we drove at the dead of night to come to a beautiful cottage/cabin. my friends were very impressed with the area. they wanted to stay in the cabin for all our stay but i forced them outside to enjoy the beauty of lake placid. this place was definitely a plus on our trip. fully stocked kitchen. just bring your food and ingredients. would love to stay here again.

It was a great place to stay and enjoyed our time there. Pros: layout, thermostat in each room, wood for fireplace, comfortable couch and bed. Cons: cleanliness, needs more lighting (very dark), needs a dishwasher or better dry rack for dishes

Wonderful cozy retreat!

  • 5 of 5

The Scenic Point Chalet is exactly what we were looking for - a cozy, comfortable retreat for us to relax and enjoy the Adirondack lifestyle for a few days. Stacy was wonderful in answering any questions we had and offering up meal options in the area. After a day of hiking we loved hanging out in front of the warm fire on the large couch. What a perfect place for the getaway we were looking for!

Beautiful home.

Tucked away in a very quiet part of town. The home slept the 8 of us privately and comfortably. Would highly recommend.

A taste of home in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

This place was so cozy. We stayed with our two children and two dogs. The neighborhood is quiet and lovely, perfect for morning and evening walks with the pups. We took the trail at the end of the road up the mountain one morning; what a view!

The house is very open, with lots of space to relax. The beds are very comfortable. The boys stayed in the loft, enjoying having a whole floor to themselves. Everything was clean and easy to find. I took advantage of the kitchen, cooking meals daily. There was a grocery store just minutes away for all of the little things we forgot to bring with us and goodies for smores in the fireplace.

This property is in a perfect location. We found so much to do without having to travel more than 30 minutes. We hiked at Heart Lake, trekked up Whiteface Mountain, and even enjoyed a child free evening at Ausable Brewing Company's fantastic pavilion. We found ourselves planning a return trip to the area by the second day. Would defiantly stay in this house again!
