My boyfriend and I recently made a last-minute decision to go hiking for 2 days in the Adirondacks and were lucky enough to find a room available at the Snow Goose. I should say 2 rooms, as we stayed in both available rooms, Legacies the first night and Passages the second. Our initial contact with the owners by email was good. They got back to us quickly and although they don't take credit cards, they offered to waive the request for a deposit by mail, given the short lead time.
Both rooms were clean, comfortable, quiet and private. We preferred the first-floor Legacies room for its more modern earth-tones decor, kitchenette facilities and extra large walk-in shower. We were able to store the food we brought for hiking lunches in the bar-type refrigerator. In both rooms, the bed linens were tasteful and bath towels soft and thick.
While the weekday Continental breakfast was ample and pleasant, with fruit yogurts, fruit, home-made muffins, organic cereals and choice of beverage, the weekend breakfast was truly delicious. Amy and Wayne served us fresh juice, baked pears, vegetable quiche, turkey sausages, muffins and coffee while we chatted with fellow travellers.
The hosts were in every way friendly, attentive and accommodating. For example, the first morning they agreed to serve breakfast a half-hour earlier to allow us to start early on a long trail. The last day, when Amy realized we were planning to hike and then return home, she astonished us with an offer to let us return for a shower before our drive home. Wayne and Amy are both truly engaged in their business, speaking with passion about the products they use, the local artists they promote and the history of the house. They were happy to provide information about the area such as good restaurants, grocery stores and nearby trails and they listened with interest to our hiking exploits. We look forward to a return visit and can highly recommend their facility to others.
