Thank you very much! The house was perfect. You really thought of everything to make our group of 7 feel like we have a “home away from home”. Loved the hot tub, fire pit and ambiance. Looking forward to our next trip here.

The Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time we've rented here as a group for winter activites at Lake Placid and (of course) Whiteface. Never a disappointment. The house was extremely clean (and smelled great) when we arrived, with everything in order as expected. Kitchen is well-stocked with utensils, pots/pans, etc. -- no problem with 8 people staying and sharing everything. The hot tub was clean and in great condition as well. The driveway was plowed twice during our visit (we had lots of snow) and wasn't an issue at any point. The only minor thing I would say could be improved is more dishwasher tablets/detergent and garbage bags. Having to drive to the Hannaford in Lake Placid just to buy some extra bags and detergent shouldn't have to happen.

We will definitely be back again!

Beautiful home in an amazing location

  • 5 of 5

Got lucky enough to book this home for one of the last available weekends in the 2017 ski season. From the jump Todd was nothing but friendly and helpful. Not only was the Olympic chalet so close to whiteface that you could throw a stone at it, the home itself was amazing. Coming back after a 6 hour day on the mountain and being able to jump into the steam shower, sauna and hot tub was really a game changer from previous homes that me and my friends have rented in the Wilmington area. Indoor and outdoor sound system was great and everything is very well organized in the interior of the house. Will definitely rent again in the future. Thanks again Todd.

Amazing house, amazing management

  • 5 of 5

I spent a week in this house with 5 other people (3 couples). Every aspect of the house was more than we all could have wished for. We arrived and the house was in perfect condition with instructions in a binder for how to manage every situation such as garbage/recycling, how to use the hot tub, sauna, and fireplace, and how to leave the house when we check out. They even give recommended restaurants in the area. The caretakers were available via phone and text during the stay for any additional questions. The house is beautiful and it is PERFECT for if you are enjoying at Whiteface mountain for all it has to offer. We will definitely be coming back!
