About The Owner

We had The Wescotts built to provide an affordable place for families. Having three children of our own, we understand the expenses of traveling

The Owner purchased this townhome in 2003

Why The Owner chose Adirondacks

We are natives to the Adirondacks and we wanted people to experience the beauty of our home.

What makes this townhome unique

Sitting on the deck in the morning or evening and watching the wildlife around the pond behind the townhouse is awesome. Enjoying the gas fireplaces or the Jacuzzi in the upstairs bathroom. Walking down to the pond and having a picnic is unique as our property is in the middle of Lake Placid.

Exceptional

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in one of the townhouses. It was very clean, spacious, well decorated and just perfect for 2 couples and a 3 yr old. The fireplaces were easy to use,; the kitchen well stocked with basic dishes, glassware, cookware. Very large family room and dining room. The 2nd floor 3 bedrooms are nicely decorated and good size. We especially appreciated all the floor space, outdoor porch and sitting areas, the beautiful backyard views. We would consider staying reserving this unit again. Downside: Parking is very tight in a small lot. My first impression of the reception area in the separate main house was not good. The office/ living room(?) was very cluttered with papers, toys...stuff...The reception person, who we did speak to on a couple occasions, did not introduce herself, did not converse much, dressed as disorganized as the room. There's casual..and then too casual...The townhouse was excellent and I would recommend this property for a stay...can't review the rooms in the main house...

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your positive review of our townhouse. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay. I do agree with you that our parking is tight. We didn't have much area to work with and if everyone does their part, the parking plan works out fine. I did find it quite amusing that you found it necessary to critique my wardrobe and tidiness of my living room. After 29 years as a totally hands on female B&B owner and 14 years as my grandchildren's day care provider, I have found that dressing for the tasks planned on any given day is great for time management. Two days ago, I was at my mother's in the morning splitting wood and here at the B&B, in the afternoon, replacing a railing cap on the deck of the townhouse that you stayed in, which entailed using a power saw and a drill. Good way to ruin a good set of clothing. I also found that my grandchildren like to play with the toys and the room is cleaned up after they depart. I am thinking that perhaps one day my name will show up on Mr Blackwell's worst dress list and Martha Stewart's worst housekeeper list. Thanks for the awesome review and you have a great day.

Failure to Refund

  • 1 of 5

We booked this rental for the Columbus Day Weekend. The day before our scheduled arrival, Carol (presumably the owner) told us that the home experienced significant damage due to a kitchen fire just that morning, and that she would issue me a full refund due to the inconvenience. Of course, I expressed my sympathy for the fire and wished them luck with the renovation. I did also ask about refund details. Despite several emails and now almost a week passing since the promise of a refund, I have neither received a response nor the refund owed. I am incredibly sympathetic that they experienced such a loss and I do wish them the best, but I also need my money back as promised.

TERRIFIC Home at the Wescotts

  • 5 of 5

Our son is participating in the developmental Skeleton program at the Olympic bobsled track in Lake Placid, so we have occasion to stay in Lake Placid. This is our first year of having to do this - and it's been quite a bit of back and forth from Pennsylvania. We've found much of Lake Placid to be priced competitive to each other, yet the facilities can be VERY different. The Wescotts, however, is an exceptional property at an exceptional price. Cozy, comfortable, well equipped, organized and just terrific. They have a book in the kitchen that is updated weekly with activities which I just thought was the BOMB! It was a pleasure to flip through the pages!! The only recommendation I would make would be to label the fireplace thermostats. It took us FOREVER to figure that out, esp. since the one on the main floor is in celsius - not fahrenheit. Fine for Canadians but not-so for us not-too-bright Americans. :)) (Nothing like a little self-deprecating humor!)

Anyway, thank you for a wonderful stay!!

home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Wescott's for this past New Year's Eve weekend. It was fantastic! The condo was absolutely spotless when we walked in. It honestly looks like it was built yesterday! All the furniture is new and very tasteful. There is a washer and dryer. Fully stocked kitchen. There is also a huge private deck that looks over a really cute pond! The owner's did an amazing job with this condo! I can't begin to say how pleased we were with our stay. Considering what you will pay for a nice hotel room in Lake Placid this place is a steal! We will definitely stay here again and I would recommend this to anyone heading up to Lake Placid
