The photos do not do this house justice. We had a large crew and it was the perfect size for us all. We loved gathering around the kitchen island for every meal. Everything was top-notch and decorated with class. The fire pit was perfect for S'more making. And, the view of Whiteface Mountain was beautiful. While it's a little out of the way from Lake Placid, it is a great "hideaway" and you really feel secluded. The only thing we didn't quite like was the grill. It was small and in the front of the house. Not ideal for barbequeing. Otherwise, wonderful "home away from home". Thanks, Todd & Kimmy!
