Guestbook Comment

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful house provided the perfect setting for my adult children, grandchildren and I to play together for a week in, on and around beautiful Lake Placid. The kitchen was well-eqipped and large enough for several cooks to work in. There were enough comfortable beds and bathrooms to accomodate all of us. The hot tub was used every day and was especially fun at night. And the gameroom was in constant use. In general, the chalet is beautiful, clean, well-maintained and just plain fun to stay in. We had a great time!

Beautiful Home For A Group Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I (6 people in total) stayed at the home during a trip to Lake Placid to hike and explore the outdoors. We were pleasantly surprised by how spacious and inviting the home is. The pictures don't do it justice!

The kitchen was large enough for several of us to work in at the same time, and had everything we needed, and more! A few of us had brought our own kitchen gadgets, but the owners had already provided everything we needed.

The master bedroom/loft and downstairs common area get a lot of early light, which was perfect for our early morning wake-up calls!

The hot tub was perfect after a long day on the trails, and the fire pit (actual pit, not a chiminea) was a welcome spot to relax before bed. We lucked out with perfect weather, so we didn't even end up using the game room/exercise room on the lower level!

The house was cozy, and well appointed. We really enjoyed our stay here, and look forward to renting again when our adventures find us back in Lake Placid.

Relaxing, quiet, well-appointed vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

We were two families staying at Mountain View Chalet, and we all enjoyed it very much. The house is very clean, large enough for two families, stocked with entertainment, exercise, and cooking equipment to keep everyone occupied for the entire visit. My wife and I enjoyed the spacious loft, our daughter slept on the futon couch on the other corner of the loft, all four boys slept in the bunk room on the main floor, and our best friend slept in the guest room on the main floor. There is plenty of space to spread out, store all your clothing and luggage, and lounge and relax in the loft, great room or the game room in the basement. We were never on top of each other. The back porch was nice to sit and relax on, and to watch the hummingbirds after I cleaned and filled the feeder, but we never got a chance to have a fire in the pit in the backyard. We didn't get to use the hot tub because it was broken, but it will hopefully be repaired soon.

The location is excellent, being only 10 minutes from the main street in Lake Placid, but is far enough away to be perfectly quiet with no light or noise pollution to worry about. It is easy to bypass it to avoid the traffic to get to Saranac, Keene, or Whiteface. It also is all downhill to Lake Placid, so it is feasible to ride a bike there, but it is a good but doable uphill ride on the way back. There is a nice hiking/biking trail near the house, and the road is in good condition for biking or running.

We had a great week there and would definitely rent this property again.

Relaxing mountain cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Mountain View Chalet. The home is well equipped and comfortable. Easy acces to area hiking and attractions. Enjoyed relaxing on the porch, fires in the fire pit at night as well as pool and ping pong in the basement. The musicians in the family had fun playing the piano. Great kitchen. All adults in our group but think it would also be great for a family with kids.

Excellent weekend getaway for a large family

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at this awesome house. We have 6 children ranging in age from 2 to 17 so the game room was perfect for the older kids and the hot tub was entertaining for the younger ones. The kitchen was stocked with everything you need to cook. The dining room table is huge so it was very accommodating. The owners kept us very informed regarding the home. We highly recommend the Mountain View Chalet. Way better than staying in a hotel!
