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!!

It was amazing

  • 5 of 5

We spent the weekend here for our wedding and everything was perfect! The layout of the house worked perfectly for our wedding party to all stay together and the hot tub and sauna were a hit! They made sure everything was set out for anything we needed (example: fire wood). The only trouble we had was that there were a number of bees on the porch but that’s to be expected this time of year. All around, the house and everything about it was a great experience!

The home is very clean and maintained. We had 16 people and there was plenty of room. We parked in the garage so we could load and unload our car without getting wet from the rain. The back porch has a great view. And,its super easy to find and close to the hiking trails and Lake Placid.

Great house, great location, great time!

  • 5 of 5

My group has been spending a long weekend together in Lake Placid every year for six years and this house has been perfect for us. It had the best layout inside and outside. The firepit was awesome, had great views, and there was plenty of firewood to use. The decor in the house was perfect and everyone felt at home, and we had plenty of room for gatherings as well as privacy if desired. Overall great time and Gene was amazing from the time we booked to 8 months later with our stay. Couldn't have asked for a better person to deal with.

Perfect for our wedding

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Grand Meadows Lodge for 3 nights and had our wedding reception here. It was the perfect place to bring both of our families together. The back lawn had plenty of room to set up a tent for our reception of about 50 people. The house is beautiful with plenty of room for the 20 of us. Great kitchen and open living room and the game room downstairs worked well for our children. We loved having coffee on the deck in the morning....perfect spot to listen to the birds. Gene was very easy to work worth, even contacting us for some items we left behind and arranging to get them back to us. It is a beautiful spot for anyone having a large group and looking for a relaxing home to stay in the Adirondacks.
