2012 Christmas Vacation (Nocito Family - Philadelphia, PA)
Submitted: February 6, 2013
Stayed: December 2012
My husband and I and our eight year old son stayed at the 46-er over the 2012 Christmas and New Year’s week (Dec 22 - Dec 29) and it was an awesome home and location (it is really only 2 miles from Whiteface Mountain!!!). We are not lodge-people; we like a private home with a great location, fireplace, and hot tub.
I don’t know where to begin complimenting this home; location, location, location, beautifully decorated, great hardwood floors, perfect size kitchen and well stocked, great fireplace with dry and conveniently located wood, big wraparound porch with a large hot tub, and responsive & accommodating local property managers (BIG thank you to the Davis family)!! We had 20 inches of snow fall in less than 24 hours and the street, deck, and driveway were plowed multiple times!
We truly loved this home and would love to come back! We have a four-year tradition in the making where we spend the week between Christmas and New Year’s away skiing, and next year we are already scheduled for the west coast, otherwise would be coming back for 2013. We will definitely be back to the 46-er in the next 3 or 4 years (if available)!!!
CLEANISNESS: house was very clean!!
BONUS: Pet friendly
GRIPES: Our one and only gripe is the coffee maker is old and does not keep your coffee hot.
NEEDS: You must have an SUV or 4-wheel drive anywhere in upstate New York (obvious!!)
SUGGESTIONS/OPINIONS: best grocery shopping is in Keene before you get into Wilmington or Lake Placid proper (9 to 11 miles past the house). Purchase fire starter bricks as there was no kindling or ax to make your own kindling (no biggie, just nice to know beforehand)
WHITEFACE MOUNTAIN: Great Skiing! Snowboard/Ski school was excellent for our son! Before Whiteface we skied and put our child in the following ski schools: Stowe, VT; Sun Valley, ID, and Big Sky, MT, and this ski school was as good and equally accommodating!!
HOME OWNER/LOCAL PROPERT MANGERS: friendly, helpful & accommodating!!
Families with Young Children,
Owner's Response: Thank YOU Jane!
You don't even know what it means for us to hear back from our guests.
We do take pride in what we do and a feedback from our guests is essential in creating the best possible experience for us all.
I'm on the mission to buy a new coffee maker, nobody mentioned it's dysfunction earlier.
This is a great example of how the feed back is important, since you only learn about it through experience,when you stay at the place.
Thank you again for being our guests, and please don't hesitate to let us know when you are ready for your next visit to any of our Vacation Homes.
All the Best,
