Guestbook comments from the owner

Gene's house in the Adirondacks is truly a sight to behold. It's a gorgeous, spacious and rustic multi-level home with new furnishings and appliances, sitting on a cozy piece of land. My friends and I had an amazing weekend out of the hectic city here, and Gene was very courteous and helpful with any concerns or questions I had. Don't miss this place. Hot tub is legit, you can't do a winter trip without one!!

Once again, an outstanding week!

  • 5 of 5

Third consecutive year we have stayed. We are a group of lacrosse coaches who participate in the week long Summit lacrosse tournament in Lake Placid. This well appointed home provides everything you need to relax from the hot tub and sauna to the gourmet outfitted kitchen. Solitude and stress free living for the week. You can't go wrong here!

This place is so beautiful!! We were 15 and a baby. It was equipped beautifully and all the little extra touches were much appreciated. We kept finding more wonderful things as the week went on. The owner, Gene made us feel very welcome .

The location, views, house and Gene himself were all great.

  • 5 of 5

My family just spent a wonderful week at the house celebrating my mom's 70th birthday. The house and property were beautiful. Plenty of room for the 18 of us (including several kids). The location was also perfect with Lake Placid and multiple other attractions being only a short drive away. Finally, Gene was super responsive and made the entire process and stay simple. Would definitely stay there again.

Family vacation...

  • 5 of 5

Had all our "kids" and grandkids plus a couple of friends at this house and it was good. The house had plenty of room and there were lots of activities in the area. We will consider renting this house again next year.

Wonderful home & host.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with a bunch of HS friends and our kids. It was such a beautiful home and so well kept... and the views were amazing! We loved the open layout with plenty of room for all. Kids would play in the family room (or in the game room) while adults sat at the table and talked (wish it wasn't so rainy so we could've enjoyed the deck and yard!). Oh - kitchen was also plenty big for all five families to be preparing food at once; and there was an extra fridge in the garage so no problem storing all our food either! Gene was super responsive from the moment we booked throughout the entire trip - any questions/problems and he responded immediately. The home was very close to everything that we were interested in - Lake Placid, ADK wildlife refuge, High Falls Gorge and the High Peaks. Only minor issue we had with the house was with the AC, it was comfortable on the main floor, but HOT upstairs and FREEZING in the basement. Overall though, it was a short, rainy, yet amazing trip and we all agree we would definitely return and stay here again! Thanks so much, Gene!
