Retired couple from Connecticut. We love Old Forge and have been coming here for 20 years. It is our second home and we look forward to sharing our Adirondack experience with you and your family!

Claire purchased this chalet in 2004

Best possible location, one block walk to town, and directly on the Moose River with serene river views and private dock for Kayaking and river access!

The Sci Sci chalet was just as described and reviewed. The property is well maintained and booking was easy. The chalet allowed for relaxation along the Moose River as well as the ease to walk to town to enjoy the shops and restaurants. We enjoyed multiple days of kayaking (through the recommended Tickner's) as well as hiking around the area. We grilled on the lovely deck a couple nights and enjoyed Sisters Bistro for two dinners, a short walk from the chalet. We highly recommend this property and will definitely consider it again in the future.

The SciSci Chalet is just wonderful. This summer was the third time my husband and I have taken our two children(age 11&12) to the Adirondacks to enjoy our summer vacation. We always return to the SciSci Chalet.
Location is perfect, private dock for daily kayaking or fishing and close to town for fun shopping. Several restaurants are close enough that we can walk to town for dinner and even catch an early movie. My children's favorite is the water park nearby, be sure to take advantage of the 2 day ticket if you have time.
The owners were very easy to work with and offered many suggestions of places to go and things to do with our children. The suggested hikes and sightseeing were a highlight of our week. We even took our kids horseback riding for the first time.
We finished our perfect week with a Bon fire and roasted marshmallows in the backyard. Such wonderful memories. This Chalet is truly a slice of heaven and we hope to return again next summer!

For the past 6 years - in both summer and winter - our family has had the joy of renting this one-of-a-kind Adirondack Chalet from the lovely Sci family. Nestled behind a row of pines on the banks of the Moose River, the chalet offers the beauty and recreation of a waterfront property with the convenience of in-town accessibility. Artfully decorated and perfectly maintained, this beautiful property contains all the necessary modern amenities while maintaining a unique rustic appeal. The Sci Sci Chalet is truly a rare find.

We stayed at the Sci Sci Chalet for August 2012 with our two children- ages 15 and 11 and had a wonderful time! The house was clean, beautifully decorated and in a great location- close to Old Forge- everything was within walking distance or a short drive. It has a beautiful deck that overlooks the river along w/all of the amenities you could want- washer-dryer, dishwasher and a fully outfitted kitchen.

We just returned from Old Forge and the Sci Sci Chalet. This house is wonderful and very clean. The photos don't do it justice. The setting is so serene yet still so close to town The owners were easy to work with and helpful with our questions. This truly was the perfect Adirondack experience. The Chalet is only a one block walk to town. Took the kids to play mini golf at Nutty Putty, and ice cream after at Benny's. We also rented kayaks right next door at Tickner's Canoe and Kayak rentals. And if you bring your own Kayaks you can tie them up to the private dock behind the house on the river. There is a huge deck facing the Moose River with tranquil views of the river from both the family room, one of the upstairs bedrooms, and the deck. There is also a Weber gas grill and nice furniture on the deck making it easy for barbecues. We also took the kids to the Enchanted Forest Water Theme Park which is only a 10 minute walk from the house! Our family loved the house and Old Forge and highly recommend both!
