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!!

Another Great Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting homes in the park for over 20 years and once again our family had a great experience working with High Peaks Rentals. This home is beautiful and was a perfect setting to bring our family together for Thanksgiving. Communication was excellent with the owner throughout. The home is beautiful, well equipped and the location is convenient for hiking or a quick run into Lake Placid. This is not our first time renting from Gene and we will be back again soon.

The house was just as luxurious looking in person.

  • 5 of 5

Gene was amazing with everything! He was very prompt with answers to all of my questions, and was flexible with arrival and departure times that came in handy since we all came from really far.

The house was AMAZING! It was super clean and well kept. The decorations were a nice touch in making this home feel cozy. There was plenty of space for our group of 15 people. The rooms were beautiful with very comfy beds and enough storage space. There were enough bathrooms for our group which were stocked with toilet paper, and fresh clean towels. The kitchen was stocked with pots and pans which was great since we didn’t pack our own. There were also two fridges that came in handy since we packed so much food. One in the kitchen and one in the garage. The game room was packed with games that entertained everyone while the food was cooking. This house provided the best stereo system. We all brought our own speakers since previous houses did not have them, but were surprised and excited to see that the stereo system was not only provided but also worked really well and was easy to use. The windows in the dinning area made it easy to let fresh air in without the bugs. The view from the house was very calming, especially when relaxing on the hammock. When posting pictures to our own individual social media, everyone commented on how beautiful the house and landscape were. They also wanted to know where we were at and more info on the house. We all had a blast and did not want to leave. I would for sure rent from Gene again!

*side note* our drive was 6+ hours but definitely worth the drive. Everyone in my group wanted to buy this house!

We stayed here the last week of October. Still a few leaves on the trees. 8 adults and 6 kids. Plenty of room. Beds are very comfortable. Used outdoor fire pit, sauna, and hot tub and all excellent. Can't wait to come back.

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.
