The winter of 2009-2010 was relatively mild for the north country and there is a very good chance that many of the brown trout have held over from last year. I am always willing to consider special rates for fly fishing groups
Upon arrival to the ADK woodland retreat, we quite amazed at the property. It was set back in a secluded location, that scenic and quiet. The house is very open and spacious. We were there with our family and had a wonderful stay in a beautiful home and region of the Adirondacks. The ride to Whiteface for skiing was very convenient and close. There wasn't a lot of snow up there this year, we were there the year before and there was more snow, but Whiteface really did a nice job with having enough trails open for all levels of skiing. We loved the comfort and spacious spaces the house provided, with 8 people in our group it was quite comfortable for everyone and no one got in any other persons way. The furniture is beautiful in the house, with the dining room and its furniture quite pretty and well maintained. There is lots to do and see in Lake Placid, which is a twenty minute drive from the house Plus there is lots to see and do all year round even closer to the house. The homeowners, Bill and Dina were easy to communicate with and always available with answers to our questions. We will definitely look to book the house again in the future for another family get away and get together. Thanks Bill and Dina for having such a great house!!!
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.
Great house with spacious living area. It was warm, with view of the forest, fairly close to slopes (much closer than Lake Placid properties). Only downside is that supermarket is far away (in Lake Placid), but there are 3 restaurants and small store close by. Easy access to 9N and i-87. Loved the place, will be back.
