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.

Amazing home, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Once again, we had a wonderful stay at the Olympic Dreams Chalet. We stayed at the home in November of 2016 and again in October 2017 and will definitely be back again. The homeowner, Todd, is super responsive and helpful. The house is absolutely perfect and you can't beat it's proximity to everything the Adirondack's have to offer. We really enjoyed the hot tub, sauna and fire pit. It was super convenient having the option to purchase wood straight from the front porch. The house isn't far from Lake Placid or a bunch of other super cute, small ADK towns. The kitchen is well equipped for all of your culinary needs. Everything is clean and well cared for. The ONLY complaint that we have is that there isn't a lot of comfortable seating in the living room. Don't get me wrong, we love the huge pillow couch thing for cuddling in front of the beautiful fireplace and the couches are fine for a few people, but when we had 8 adults trying to sit in the living room to play a game around the coffee table, it was difficult for everyone to sit comfortably around the table. We will definitely be back next year and would 100% recommend this home.

Wonderful space for a weekend away with friends

  • 5 of 5

The Olympic dreams chalet was just what my friends and I were looking for when we wanted a relaxing getaway in the Adirondacks. While it's close to amenities of towns, we mostly just stayed at the home cooking in the spacious kitchen and enjoying the sauna, hot tub, soaking tub, and campfire. When we ventured out of the house, it was to the many gorgeous hikes within just a 2-5 mile distance away. We felt relaxed and recharged after our time here and would definitely go back! Thank you so much for a wonderful stay!
