Guestbook comments from the owner
Thank you so much for allowing us to use your wonderful chalet. The layout is amazing with a beautiful view of the stream through the trees made us dream of glade skiing all night. Not only were the beds the most comfortable VRBO mattresses we’ve had the pleasure of using the chalet, your chalet was wonderfully clean and equipped. We loved it!! I would give it a 9 out of 10. 10 = ski in and ski out.
Thank you again. We will be back!
Grandmother, homeowner, cross country skier. Love the outdoors, especially in Lake Placid!
The Birdhouse, as we affectionately term it, has been in our family for almost 20 years. In 2012, we completed a gut-renovation and are now sharing our home with vacationers and athletes from all over.
