Our family had the pleasure of staying in this newly constructed, gorgeous vacation home! Our intent was to have some time to enjoy each others company for a few days. We definitely chose the perfect house and location to do just that! The house is so comfortable it makes you feel right at home the minute you settle in and it was immaculate! Each of the bedrooms is roomy, have beautiful quilts and decor on the walls, and have plenty of closet space, a TV and a fan for your sleeping comfort. It was a challenge for us choosing which room we were all taking; they all are such beautiful rooms. The master bedroom on the top floor is the gem of all gems!! The bathrooms were all spacious, beautifully designed, fresh and clean and provided us with plenty of towels. The living room and kitchen are an open layout giving it such a cozy feeling and the counter was quite lovely to gather around to chat. The chef's kitchen is an understatement as to what it offered while we prepared our meals.
Each morning before breakfast we enjoyed sitting in the hot tub on the back deck, listening to birds chirping while overlooking Whiteface and the surrounding Mountains. Wow! What a way to get our day started!
During the days we spent our time out and about taking a few short hikes. The decision was difficult on where to hike because there are so many close trails, say nothing about all the high peaks we could've hiked within close proximity. We took a ride up the Whiteface gondola, went kayaking on the AuSable River, took in the shops in Wilmington and drove to neighboring Lake Placid, Keene, Keene Valley and into Saranac Lake to shop some more, take in some of the Olympic Venues and enjoy the beautiful scenery.
In the late afternoons we headed back to the chalet to relax and unwind. We prepared some awesome meals and enjoyed them dining on the back deck among each other's company overlooking the yard and beautiful mountain range. We followed dinner by having bonfires at the massive fire pit sitting in the most comfortable Adirondack chairs. We took steam showers and saunas in the wee hours (a must if you've never taken one). What a way to end our days!
This chalet has an overall presence of relaxation and peacefulness and if that's what you're looking for in a vacation home then this is definitely the place for you. It's a true gem! The area too offers so many outdoor adventures.
Our only complaint is that it went by too fast! Ty Todd & Kimmy lovely place you do it right!!
