This cute home is located in the heart of the Adirondacks, about 20 minutes from Lake Placid. A great place to getaway if you want some peace and quiet - no neighbors to be seen, just the mountains across the road. Located on 2.4 acres, there is plenty of room to wander and explore. Situated on Hurricane Mt, it's a great place to relax after a day of hiking, skiing, shopping or doing nothing on the large deck overlooking the view!
When I first arrived I found the rental home a very pleasant and beautiful location. It wasn't until later that we discovered a rodent problem which got worse as our one week stay progressed. First we found rodent droppings in the kitchen drawers which we cleaned up. Then some food was partially eaten. So we moved our food off the floor. The last day we found 3 mice in the trash can inside the cabinet. After that we put all our food in our cars and put all the trash in the trash can outside. This only caused the mice to move to the living room in search of food. When we complained to the owner she only said she never had this problem before and after we left she blamed the problem on us being messy! I will never stay here again!
First and most importantly: this house was immaculately clean on arrival. I was also impressed by how well appointed it was: not one but two coffeemakers (standard and K cup), cupboards filled with spices and cooking staples, plenty of games to play, etc. A gorgeous deck where you can sip coffee and enjoy the view. The house's location is ideal if you want privacy and enjoy the outdoors. We split our time between hiking the various nearby mountains and doing more "touristy" things in Lake Placid which is only about a half hour away. Our only complaint? No air conditioning; it was fairly humid the first day we were there but thankfully even without AC the three downstairs bedrooms were relatively cool. Other than that: PERFECTION!
I wanted a rental home that had a true Adirondack feel, and this fit the bill. It is in a secluded area yet only about 20 minutes away from Lake Placid. It is on a quiet road and you can't see any other houses. It was the perfect size for my family of 6. It was clean and modern and nicely decorated. The kitchen was large and had everything that we needed and I appreciated having a table that fit 6 people. Plus there is a bar with 4 stools for more seating. The living room was spacious and had cathedral ceilings and a gorgeous view of mountains. We loved sitting on the deck to relax and enjoy the view.
We had an issue with wifi when we first arrived and I contacted the owner who responded within minutes and helped me to solve the problem. (Just so you know, if wifi isn't working just unplug it for several minutes and plug it back in. That fixed the problem and we had great signal.)
We enjoyed Ausable Chasm, Lake Placid, Whiteface Mountain, the Rail Bikes, and the Wild Center and all were within about 45 minutes of the house. I highly recommend the ADK cafe in Keene. Their food was delicious.
I would stay at this house again.
We found this a wonderful location to explore the high peaks region of the ADK. In fact there are 4 great peaks to explore right in the immediate vicinity of Hurricane Road. We were traveling as two couples with two dogs and we had plenty of space for all. The house has all the comforts of home, including a TV, wifi, a great, fully-equipped kitchen and grill. We loved sitting out on the deck and enjoying the beautiful view after a day of hiking. Our only comment would be that the floors were not well sound-proofed, so if you have people who get up early and others who want to sleep late, that could be a bit of a problem. Forrest is a pleasure to rent from. He pays attention to details and is very relaxed and accommodating. We hope to rent again from him.
This was the first time we ever rented a home away from home for our vacation~ Such an incredible experience~~ The serenity of the mountain home, the cleanliness and conveniences that were offered were waaaay above any expectations we had! Hope to return one day in the near future!!
My husband and I took our parents to the Adirondacks as a thank you vacation for helping us (and dealing with us) during our wedding. The cabin was amazing, quiet, private, clean and gorgeous. We had a fantastic week between sight seeing, hiking, visiting Lake Placid, and just relaxing at the cabin. I would definitely recommend Forrest. It was perfect!
Located in the heart of the ADK's, there is plenty of outside activities to do. Numerous hikes just miles from the house, Lake Placid is 20 min away with lots of shops and sightseeing as well. The AuSable River is about 5 min away with lots of fishing and swimming.
