We stayed at this property for the annual Ironman competition that takes place in nearby Lake Placid, which is about a 25 minute drive. The property itself is beautiful, spacious, and very well decorated inside, you really feel like you are in a mountain log cabin!
Unfortunately we had some issues that i feel compelled to discuss: #1, after multiple times of requesting the key to be left at the door, and being told that the landlord would meet us there, neither happened, the key was in a lockbox that we had no idea the combination. Due to poor cell service in the area, it took a while to get ahold of the landlord, who told us the combo, but that was wrong. We finally got the number of the property manager, who gave us the correct combo.
#2: It took me over TWO Months and numerous emails and phone calls, some very scathing, to receive our deposit back. During this process of asking for the deposit back, I was asked over a month later if i noticed a lamp had been broken and the TV remote was missing, neither of which we had done/seen. After many begging phone calls, we finally received our deposit in the mail!!! It is frustrating, because I know if we hadn't been persistent, we never would have received it back.
Other than those cons, the place is beautiful and a perfect distance from Lake placid, as well as a great value for the size of home you get. Just not sure if it was worth all the headache!!
