This was the perfect place to stay for skiing at Whiteface. The open floor plan made it a pleasure to have friends over for dinner, with the dining area, kitchen and living room on the first level. The wood burning stove created so much heat, it was plenty warm without turning on the heat upstairs. The four bedrooms downstairs had comfortable beds, clean sheets and hardwood floors that ensure a good night's sleep even for those with allergies. We had dinner in Lake Placid one night, about 15 min. drive...the downtown area is adorable and charming. We would not stay anywhere else, if we return to the area. I highly recommend this rental home to anyone looking to visit the area.
