Testimonials

July 2013

What a great place. Just got back from canoeing and hiking in the Adirondacks. Stayed at Highpeaksdrifter and the pictures do not do this place justice. My friends and I tossed around whether or not we should camp out while we did our Canoe trip with multiple portages in the St Regis Wilderness Area. We decided we wanted to feel like we were camping but have a bed and a shower at the end of the day. This place did not dissapoint. All of the amenities of a modern house (wifi, DISH, air conditioning, full kitchen), yet go out on the deck and patio and you are grilling and lighting a bonfire in the wilderness. We were camping until we weren't. Best of both worlds. House is very clean and brand new. Definitely coming back.

A terrific spot for our family's annual hiking weekend in the high peaks area; Highpeaksdrifter will also be a top choice for our winter ski trip. The house is spacious, well-equipped and very clean; the location affords easy access to Lake Placid, Wilmington, and the great outdoors. Our group of six was very comfortable. Evenings around a campfire were especially memorable and the star gazing was rivaled only by the early morning mountain view. The excellent internet connection was appreciated. The owners were easy to reach and most helpful. Highly recommended.

August 2013

Upon arriving, I was immediately impressed with the house and the property. It is secluded but not far from town. We stayed there for the Ironman week and being the athlete, I was hoping to have quiet& relaxation before and after the race, I was not disappointed here! The rooms were all extremely clean, spacious and comfortable- you felt at home, even my kids loved staying here and are hoping to come back during ski season. The fully furnished kitchen made cooking meals so easy and the Game room kept the kids busy after dark. My favorite part of the house was the deck, the view was spectacular-- Amazing place to sit and reflect on the biggest race of my life! We also had my parents stay with us and they were also raving about how wonderful the property was. A true gem as you never really know what you might get until check in. I just can't say enough good things about the property and the owners were also so easy to work with- it was the most seamless trip I have ever been on. I look forward to future stays as my husband and kids are already planning more trips to Whiteface Mt.

Beautiful home only 5 minutes to Whiteface and 10 minutes to Lake Placid. Pristine condition with all modern amenities in a quiet, wooded setting. Couldn't ask for a better home to spend the weekend.

August 2012

My family and I rented this house for 4 days in the beginning of August, 2012 and absolutely loved it! It was in great shape, newer everything, clean and everything was where it was supposed to be! The Murphys (owners) were VERY communicative and helpful and the whole experience was fantastic. The location is off the beaten path a bit yet close to all and we loved the solitude while still being close to Wilmington, Jay, Keene and Lake Placid. Don't miss the watering hole off Route 86 with the rock wall jumps into a deep pool right near the Flume. We will CERTAINLY be returning to this house next year and highly recommend it!!

A good get-away in woods

  • 5 of 5
For sure, we enjoyed our trip staying at this place. Its very quiet and inside woods. the paintings inside home are interesting. The forest view from the balcony is calm and peaceful. Kitchen has got enough big utensils. This place is situated in a very convenient location - miles away from whiteface mountain and other popular destinations. Numerous hiking/biking spots near by. Overall, it was a good get-away.

Wonerful experience

Stayed here for four nights and things couldn't have been better. Great location with an evening view of the full moon and mountain peaks in the distance. Secluded but convenient location. Spotlessly clean with every amenity you'll ever need. Planning to go back ASAP!

Ironman Lake Placid week

  • 4 of 5
Excellent rental especially for the Lake Placid Ironman week. Only about 15 minutes to Lake Placid and less than 2 miles from the bike course near Whiteface mtn. House was very clean, had great appliances and cooking ware. The house was well equipped and had plenty of camp wood, fire pit, and grill. The best part of the house was the homeowners. I was in constant contact with them prior to the trip and they had numerous recommendations on hikes, restaurants, and etc. They were extremely helpful and always responded to email. I would definately come back to this property in the future. The house is secluded by woods and had several trails within walking distance of property.

The house is big and perfect, lot of sun on the deck (morning side) and nice fireplace. The area is soooo quiet and the forest around is amazing (especially with the fall colors). We were 3 couples and had a wonderfull time there, wil go back for sure next year.

My family and I absolutely loved, loved, loved this house! We felt like we were right at home and the house had everything a person could need. The view is beautiful--I’m going to miss waking up to that beautiful mountain on the horizon. The house was clean, cozy and every room was a great size. We were provided with restaurant recommendations and recommendations for the area(and so much more!). The area is gorgeous, great for sightseeing and the community is very friendly and courteous. The communication was great. The rates for the house are very affordable and well worth it. Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer! We plan to make this a yearly trip. This was a wonderful experience and the beauty, comfort, and kindness of the whole experience was made possible by the family that provided us with this wonderful residence. Many thanks! We look forward to our next stay! Thank you so much.

Can't wait to come back

My new husband and I spent a week at Highpeaksdrifter for our honeymoon. We had a fantastic time; this home offers everything we could have wanted for such a special occasion. The house is perfectly located a short 15-20 minute drive away from popular Lake Placid, with all of its adventures and amenities, but removed just enough to be quiet and refreshingly private, so we could focus on each other and spending romantic time together.

When we arrived, the property was pristine. The pictures don't do the interior of this home justice; the lofted ceilings and incredible Adirondack views make it feel luxuriously big, while the comfortable, cozy furniture keeps it relaxing and intimate. We were lucky enough to have wonderful weather for almost the whole week, and there is so much to do in the area that we couldn't have run out of activities even if our vacation had been four times as long. We went hiking, kayaking, and drove into town for dinner and to explore the Olympic Center. I would have loved to go horseback riding, but we're saving that for next time.

One of the property's greatest strengths is its owners, the Murphy family. They provided excellent customer service before and during our stay. They work very hard to make sure your vacation is exactly what you want by being prompt and responsive when you need them, but respectful and unintrusive otherwise. A vacationer couldn't ask for more.

I highly recommend this property. I've spent time in Lake Placid in years past and it was already a favorite spot, but my new husband was experiencing it for the first time. We will absolutely rent Highpeaksdrifter again in the future, both in the winter and summer so we can experience the year round fun that the Adirondacks have to offer.
