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.

WOW!!!Just WOW!!!

  • 5 of 5

We arrive on Friday March 10th to 13th. We have a group of us with kids every year to a different hill for snowboarding each year and this year was at Whiteface! The hills were a little bit icy and not all the runs were open, but we had the greatest time at this chalet. The amenities in here were great! All that we can ask for on our group vacation! There is no way that you can go wrong with booking a vacation at the Olympic Dream Chalet!

It's our 2nd time

  • 5 of 5

We love the house! Close the slopes, 15 minutes to Lake Placid and 2 minutes to the pub! The house is neat clean and well appointed. We have rented it before and will again. It is obvious the owners are involved and take care of the property. Hot tub and Sauna are a must after skiing or hiking and this house has both.

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!
