Amazing chalet!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week and really enjoyed the home. The views are beyond. Really liked the layout with open kitchen and living room (kitchen is awesome) and how the bedrooms were private. The whirlpool tub was nice, took our toddler "swimming" in it. Hot tub and fire pit were also excellent. We are family style around the granite counter. Right down the road from a wolf refuge which is really neat. We had a great time!

This home is great. The views of Whiteface could not be any better. Throw in the hot tub, sauna, fire pit, and a fully equipped kitchen, and you have the perfect base camp for all of your hiking/biking/paddling adventures. The home is very clean, and Todd is always available if you have any questions. Wish I could have stayed for the whole summer rather than just 1 week!!!

This property was everything it was advertised to be. The entire property was well maintained inside and out. The rooms were spacious and clean.

I have been to many rentals and this kitchen was as we'll equipped as my home.

The location was perfect for hiking, both road and mountain biking and swimming. Our short drive for kayaking was easy and scenic.

The first place that all 7 of us said we would stay here again. I am sure you will enjoy it as we did.

Incredible house...incredible stay...everything we hoped for and more!!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Lookout Mountain Chalet and had one of the best vacations ever! Our family is comprised of our grown adult children their spouses and our dogs. Every year we look for places to go with our dogs that we can do great hikes, biking and kayaking. We had the most wonderful time in the Adirondack Mountains hiking the various peaks for hours every day and coming back to one of the best homes as well as views we have ever enjoyed! The location was perfect for everything we wanted to do. Lookout Mountain Chalet was beautiful inside and out. We loved sitting on the deck after a long tiring day soaking in the beautiful view. At night we enjoyed putting our tired bodies in the hot tub under a star filled sky, in addition to listening to the wolves howling in the background! Our children are great cooks and they were all thrilled with the kitchen and all the space it had. Everything from the bedrooms, bathrooms, living spaces, outdoor spaces and location was better than we hoped for!! We will definitely be back sometime in the future...we hated to leave! We have stayed at many homes on VRBO but this one is a must for the active outdoor family or anyone looking for a great place in the mountains!

House and furnishings were exceptionally

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was absolutely spectacular. The house was beautiful from the floor to the ceiling. Every area was spotlessly clean. Beds were extremely comfortable with high quality sheets and pillowcases. This seemed to be a theme throughout the house. Everything was high quality. The location was perfect for access to Whiteface and Lake Placid. The wolf preserve was at the end of the property and listening to the wolves howl at various intervals brought a smile to my face. I cannot praise this place enough and would be glad to stay at any of Todd and Kim's' homes. Thank you for being such gracious hosts. Irene and Tony

unbelievable experience !!

  • 5 of 5

First of all I would like to thank Todd and Kim again for being so accommodating and allowing us to post pone our trip at the last minute due to a family emergency and allowing us to use the credits at a later time. we were in constant communication with each other and worked out a date that was good for both parties. As for the house, it is everything as promised plus more! the surrounding views are amazing, the house is well maintained, the rooms and beds were incredibly comfortable, the kitchen included everything we needed, andwe found everything to be in top shape and working order. The coolest thing for us is the animal sanctuary which is just a quick walk down the road from this house. Here you can see wolves, Bald eagles, hawks, foxes and many more animals that i would never get to see in the city life. The fact that it's less than a 5 minute walk allowed me to go and enjoy this every day during my stay. I am looking forward to staying here again!
