Great location with amazing view

  • 5 of 5

The house is spacious and has everything you need. Kitchen is fully equipped and the hot tub is awesome. Wifi was a bit spotty on the first day (due to weather), and unfortunately no reception with AT&T, but we had an amazing stay at this beautiful house. Would recommend this to anyone who wants to hang out and relax in the Adirondacks!

Great Natural Beaty

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in several of Todd and Kim's houses in the Adirondacks. They have all been great places to stay, but Esther mountain chalet is our favorite location. It is in a quiet spot, and it overlooks a beaver meadow, with mountains behind. I enjoyed sipping my morning coffee sitting on the edge of the meadow, watching nature wake up!
