Guestbook comments from the owner
We really enjoyed staying in your cabin; it was warm and cozy, even more so given the weather outside. We tried to take good care of it while we stayed there. A special thanks for the Christmas tree! We'll definitely keep you in mind if we return to the area at some point.



Thanks again, and may 2014 be happy and healthy for you and your family!

Jeff and I met in August of 2010. I moved from this home to help Jeff run our, what started out to be a small hobby farm, in late fall of 2010. We decided since this home had already been decorated in the Adirondack Style which I loved, that we would rent the home out for vacation rentals to people who wanted to enjoy coming to the Adirondacks and Whiteface Mountain, as much as I loved living there. We have had some wonderful guests stay at our house since starting renting it in the winter of 2010.

Cheryle Saltmarsh purchased this mobile home in 1987

This property is peaceful and quiet and I fell in love with it when I bought it when my son was only 5 years old. He grew up here, went on the be an Eagle Scout and served in the U.S. Navy from 2001-2005. I wish I had the before and after pictures today of how much work I have done to this property to make it was it is today. I use to sit on the back porch and watch all kinds of birds come to the feeders and their nests, I have seen a pair of foxes, turkeys, many deer, racoons, skunks, squirrels, bluebirds and cardinals, and even a coy dog. Yet to see the Moose tho, left the feeders out one night and had a bear visit - hence no more feeders. I planted many flowers all over the property and love to see them come back year after year.

This property is located only minutes from Whiteface, Santa's Workshop, Candy Man, Halls Falls George, the town beach, churches, stores and local restaurants, and the famous West Branch of the AuSable River for Fly Fisiing, and Lake Placid. Also within a days drive to Canada, Lake George area, Albany and Vermont. Jeff and I do all the bookings and are available for anything you may need. We take great pride in the look of our home and try to add new things every year. We are only a phone call away for your needs and can be there within an hour if needed.

GREAT HOUSE FOR FAMILIES!

  • 5 of 5
We arrived extremely late and tired after a 7 hour drive. Opened the door to a warm cozy home. The home is clean and full of anything you may need. There is plenty of space for board game playing, movie watching, etc. I cooked breakfast and dinner everyday of our stay and had all the kitchen utensils and pans needed. You are 2 miles from Whiteface and 11 miles from Lake Placid. Many things to do. The owners are extremely friendly and we had our deposit back the day after we left. Great experience and we will return next year!

WORTH EVERY CENT !

  • 5 of 5
Words can't explain how clean and charming it was there. The whole bear theme was great. We only wished that we could of had this place to vacation at when we lived in N.J. 8 years ago. With all the money we threw away on motels. This offers complete privacy with all the ammenties of home. Just want to thank you for letting us share in the true comfort of Adirondack life. When we arrived it was in the single digits,yet it was still warm and cozy inside. We really had a great stay. Would do it again tomorrow if we could. The hardest thing we had to BEAR was leaving. We will never look anywhere else for future vacations because we found the best. Once again thanks for everything , sure hope to visit again real soon. Martin & Linda V. Clermont, Florida

We want to thank you so much for taking such great care of our house. After previous weeks of guests who were terrible, it was a pleasant surprise to walk in and see everything done and as if no one had stayed there at all. We are so pleased to have such wonderful guests as yourselves stay with us. We hope you will consider a return visit in the future.

Thanks Again,

AWESOME LOCATION AND RENTAL HOME!

  • 5 of 5
The home is immaculate, lovely and homey all at the same time. It was spacious, the bed rooms were perfect size and beds comfortable. The bathroom is just lovely. We had room in the living room for our large family to visit and a well equiped kitchen to prep meals and snacks. We felt comfortable from the moment we walked in. Cheryle was extremely helpful to us. I cannot say enough great things about this rental. The location in Wilmington NY is perfect for our family yet anyone who is traveling to do siteseeing in Lake Placid or High Peaks would be well served. Cheryle is easy to contact and work with. We already are planning future family vacations and hope that this Bear Hollow is available.
