McGhee Family Reunion at High Peaks House
This was quite possibly the best family time together ever. Every single detail was attended to...I could not recommend a more wonderful place for a gathering such as ours. Space for everyone of all ages....close access to walking, biking, hiking, golfing, restaurants, shops...it was truly a wonderful experience! Thanks so much Donna and Doug, we will be back!
The house was incredible and the owners were great to deal with.
Wonderful house and location
Excellent stay for five families in this house...perfect size, location, and very nicely finished and furnished. definitely recommend...Donna and Doug were very supportive and efficient.
ADK Family vacation
This house gave us room to spread out. The mud room kept all the clutter in one place, the kitchen has everything you might need and is very organized, easy 2 block walk to into town. The beds are comfortable and the rooms have black out blinds. We would all stay again!
Thanks for being such a great coordinator for your large family reunion!
Our Family Vacation at High Peaks House! 5 Star
We had a fantastic week for our family from June 30-July 6, 2019! Everything about the house was far better than the great description that led us to book the house in August 2018. Everything was immaculate and in great working order. The owners were so easy to work with and were great with follow through. We were so close to Main St, just two blocks away and the grandkids felt comfortable and safe at all times. We had 10 adults and 6 grandkids, ages 11 months to 15, and the house handled all of us wonderfully! We can't wait for a return vacation visit!
Everything was perfect. No surprises except the kitchen was better furnished than we anticipated. We fed nearly 40 people breakfast the day after the wedding and everything worked out great. The location is great. We never had to drive after we made deliveries to the wedding and rehearsal dinner venues. Highly recommend this for any family or group event in Placid. Absolutely first class!
