About Mary and Brett Bousquet

We love everything about the Adirondacks and Lake Placid - a great small town with so much to do year-round. This home is perfect for us - with it's close proximity to Main Street but yet private enough to spend a quite evening on the deck. We look forward to sharing our knowledge of the area so you can get the most out of your visit to the region. My husband is a life long resident of Lake Placid and I have lived here for over 20 years.

Mary and Brett Bousquet purchased this apartment in 1996

Why Mary and Brett Bousquet chose Adirondacks

Simply decorated and very clean, we take pride in offering a quality experience for our guests.

Close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Brett & Mary's for a week of relaxation, lacrosse & checking out all the sights. The apartment has everything you need to be comfortable. Warm blankets, air conditioning, comfortable beds, full kitchen & a wonderful deck with grill for our own private use. The gardens are beautiful & the photos are spot on! Everything looked exactly as shown. The apartment is located just out of the village, perfect for low noise although close enough to walk to all the shops. We would definitely recommend these accommodations as well as stay here again.

An excellent place to stay for most travelers.

  • 5 of 5

My wife, toddler, sister-in-law and I just finished a 3 night stay at Mary's property and had a lovely stay. A few details:

-- I just reviewed the photos on Homeaway and they are perfectly accurate. The apartment was lovely in every way.

-- Not that we used it, but at a glance the kitchen seems extremely well equipped.

-- For those with toddlers, while the apartment is not officially baby-proofed it's clutter-free and therefore easy to keep the kid out of trouble.

-- The apartment is dead quiet. No noise from their home below. No noise from the street when the windows are closed (if you keep them open to enjoy the night air you'll hear passing cars but I'm a light sleeper and didn't have a problem with it at all).

-- The owners are very nice and have two adorable dogs (including a Scottie for fans of the breed).

-- The *only* caveat I would make? The bathroom lacks a bathtub so if you're looking to soak away aching quads from a long day of skiing or hiking you're gonna be disappointed. And along the same lines, the shower stall is VERY small. If you're a plus-sized person you're not going to be happy. Mary is aware of this and is exploring the possibility of a tub.

So what are you waiting for? Rent this place!

Beautiful, comfortable, clean, easy to find, close to town, nice owners

  • 5 of 5

We loved our accommodations at this newly decorated and spotlessly clean home. If you are quiet and responsible renters, this will work well for you.

It's the upper floor walk-up at the owners' home with a private entrance. The owners made hardly a peep, and they were very respectful of our privacy. You couldn't ask for nicer managers. They left the gorgeous deck for our use only, with a grill, table, chairs, loungers, a trickling fountain and a hot tub. Unfortunately, we didn't have time to enjoy it as fully as we should, but it's a really nice place for a cookout.

The unit is just as it appears in the very nice photos on this website (with an additional armchair in the living room). It is very nicely decorated and comfortable. There are only a few TV stations available, but we had some DVDs and an iPod to supplement. Besides, we spent most of the time out in the town and woods. The bathroom, though well designed, is narrow and the shower stall is on the small side. This wasn't a problem for us. The supplies in the kitchen are of good quality, including the knives, which is not the case in every vacation rental. Everything you need is there (though this is not indicated in the listing), including several place settings, mixing bowls, and pots and pans. There are plenty of cleaning supplies, and we tried to show our respect for the home by putting them to good use before we checked out.

The yard is a showcase of lovely landscaping, entirely fenced for privacy. The home is on Main St./86 near Rt. 73, another main road, so it was easy to get everywhere. You can park your car securely in the garage. We would not hesitate to rent this place from these owners again.

Perfect getaway place!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Peak View for a week in August 2012 and a week in January 2013. The apartment is charming, bright and sunny, and offers a perfect location for both summer and winter activities. Downtown Lake Placid is an easy walk. During the summer, it was a short walk or drive to Mirror Lake for paddling and swimming, and great road bike rides could be had right out the door. In the winter, it was a short drive to Whiteface or Mt. Van Hoevenberg, and the golf course behind the house is also a fun place to xc ski or sled.

In the summer, the apartment was cool and comfortable with nice cross breezes, and in the winter, it was warm and cozy. The use of the garage was great for storing our bikes in the summer and for sheltering our car from the cold and snow in winter.
