My boyfriend and I stayed at the chalet in early Sept of 2014 for a 4 night stay. We were so happy that it was pet friendly, so his dog, Riley, could come along too. That was very important to us, because we had been searching for a pet friendly location. We had a great time during our stay. It was my first visit to Lake Placid, and I am hooked!
The chalet itself was comfortable and had all the necessities. It was perfect for two people and a dog. We enjoyed cooking on grill, eating outside on the large deck and using the hot tub every night after a day full of activities. The hot tub was a huge bonus and a nice feature that not every rental has.The location of the chalet was ideal. We were minutes away from Whiteface mountain and High falls gorge. About 20 mins from the village at Lake Placid where we enjoyed the Lake Placid pub and brewery and also close to most of the Olympic venues. On our last day we drove a little over 30 minutes to Ausable chasm, which we highly recommend. It truly deserves its name as one of the NY state's natural wonders. That was probably our favorite thing we did on the trip, the boat ride at the end is definitely worth it.
We only ran into a few minor issues with the chalet itself, mostly related to the grill. And our last night at the chalet we were surprised to find another guest in the chalet- a mouse! He was safely returned outdoors.
Booking and contacting Renata was very easy and I always got a prompt response. The security deposit was mailed back promptly within 2 weeks of our stay. Those touches would make me want to stay again or at another one of their locations. We had an amazing vacation and hope to come back again next year!
