Adirondack 46'er Reviews:




Review:
This was our 2nd stay @ the 46er. Had a great, great time. Loved the place, AGAIN ! We were unable to hike last year @ the same time because of an unexpected 1 1/2 foot snow storm. Which was awesome being in the hot tub in the snow fall. ( Only wished we brought the snow boards ! ) The hiking was beautiful. Glad we got out this time. Also, saw by reading the other reviews that there are trails right behind the chalet. Did not know that. Great info for next time. We only would like to see 2 changes. Would have the creepy mask removed from above the front door, (yikes !) and would make the check-out time just a bit later. We LOVE sitting by the fire and watching the birds and critters at the bird feeder while we have our coffee in the a.m. We even brought our own bird seed this time. Would love to be able to enjoy the last morning a little longer before the long ride home. All in all it's great. We love winter A LOT so may have to bring the boards and ride Whiteface sometime this season- Awesome place, thanks, Karen & Dennis

My husband and I stayed at the 46-er from Oct 10-17th. The place is ideally located for exploring the high peaks of the Adirondacks. Wilmington NY is about 10 miles from Lake Placid. It was our first visit to this part of New York and we weren't sure if we'd picked the right area to stay - we had! Whiteface is a mile away as the crow flies, Wilmingtom Flume minutes by car and the scenery was fantastic. We would easily choose Wilmington again. You will probably have to go to Lake Placid for most of your food shopping but there's a diner in Wilmington and a pizza place and gas station. As for the 46-er in particular; we would definitely choose this place again. Charly and Renata were very easy to communicate with. They have decorated their place as a "home" with lots of touches that make you feel like you are staying in a home, not the average rental. The hot tub was very hot, the bed comfortable and the fireplace cozy. We will whole-heartedly recommend the 46-er to any and all who ask. Cheryl

My fiancée and I decided we needed a vacation. I was tasked with finding a perfect one-week getaway and The 46'er is definitely it. The cabin is fully stocked with everything you would want for a peaceful romantic retreat in the Adirondacks. Renata and Charly have done an amazing job of stocking this retreat with all the little touches that make it feel as one is coming home to their own magical retreat. Every drawer and nook held another wonderful surprise that made our trip just that more perfect. It is clearly evident that the owners love this cabin as much as their guests. They have left no detail unchecked with property and they were both excited and happy to offer advice on what to do in the local area. For a first time visitor to the Adirondacks, their vast knowledge and willingness to share was invaluable. We went hiking every morning out the back yard on miles of trails that surround the property. For a wonderful early morning view of Whiteface, We highly recommend hiking to a small clearing up a 4-wheeler track out the back yard. We grilled almost every night and enjoyed much needed relaxing soaks in the hot tub on the tranquil privacy of the wrap-around deck. It was a spectacular feeling to relax and simply gaze at the pitch-black country sky full of stars one will never see in the city. A rainy day meant chili in our crock-pot and Casablanca on the TV (thanks to their wonderful movie selection). A second rainy day was no worse. We simply enjoyed the peaceful silence that comes from no outside distractions. The pitter-patter of raindrops on the roof recalled a simpler time while we relaxed on the couch each with a good book. No annoying cell phone calls, no intrusive Internet, no loud neighbors, just the wonderful luxury that is peace and quiet. We loved reading books from their diverse selection, hiking with our Scottish Terrier, canoeing on a nearby lake, shopping in Lake Placid, and wine tasting at some of the local wineries. Dinner at The Hungry Trout was a wonderful experience. Hiking at the nearby Wilmington Flume and up Whiteface was just as fun. The best part of the trip was being able to bring our Scottie. He loved chasing the numerous squirrels and chipmunks that inhabit the property and we loved not having to worry about him in a kennel for the week. It was great to have our entire family (man, woman and Scottie) together on vacation. It truly was Heaven on Earth. We are already planning our next trip!

Review:
We loved the house. It have everything we needed. The house is small...but very cozy, clean and comfortable. It's in a great area. Close to Lake Placid. Views of Whiteface mountain were spectacular. We took the gondola to the top...a definite must on a clear day. We had great weather...swam in the river and went to waterfalls near by. It was also great that we were able to take our 2 dogs. They loved being on vacation with us and running through the woods out back. We had an amazing vacation. Would definitely recommend.

We've just spent a relaxing week at the 46-er. It was a great base for hiking (Haystack Mountain & Whiteface), exploring (High Falls Gorge, the awesome ski jumps at the winter Olympic village), shopping (Lake Placid) and just hanging out (the HOT TUB!). The 46-er is a lovely base to come home to - a relaxed style with everything that's needed to enjoy your break. David

We recently rented the 46er during the 2008 Memorial Day weekend. What a beautiful, relaxing, charming home. My only regret - we only booked for a 4 night stay! There was so much to do, we did not get the chance to fit everything into our schedule! The home itself is simply charming. The owners certainly take pride in the property -- all the little "extras" (freshly planted flower boxes, a bouquet of lilacs awaiting indoors, toiletries for your convenience) we're a welcomed surprize. The home was clean, well maintained, and just perfect for a small family. We especially loved use of the hot-tub after climbing Cascade & Porter mountains! The home is located in Wilmington, just a short distance to Lake Placid. There are many activities in the area -- we did some mountain climbing, ferry to Vermont & tour of the Vermont teddy bear factory, viewed the sites of the famed winter olympics, and of course shopped, shopped, shopped! I would highly recommend this home for your next ADK adventure.



Review:
this house is so relaxing. It is cozy and surrounded by nature. It is trully an amazing place, very serene. You can either get really buzy with all the numerous amazing activities offered in Town or lake placid or you can simply relax on the deck and gaze into the woods and listen to the beautifull sound of nature. A place where you can really recharge your battery. Highly recommended. Keep in mind that many of the restaurants around town were not open till May 15 when the season starts again but it was not a problem for us as we enjoyed great cooked meals on the BBQ and ate outside every nights and then cooked some marshmallows in the outside fire pit...great experience especially for kids.
