“Nicest B&B I have stayed in”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2013

Had a great overnite at this B&B. Owners were so friendly I made an immediate connection with them. Breakfast was out of this world and they made special accommodations for my husbands
restrictions and he still had lots to eat. But best of all was how clean the home was. Not a bit of dust or dirt anywhere. No musty smells, sheets and blankets smelled fresh and clean and bed was very comfortable. I wanted to stay longer. Fresh flowers on the dinning room table were fresh from the garden and beautiful.

Room Tip: I think we had the only queen bed, but they had other options.

From the phenomenal breakfasts to the cookies and cake after skiing we truly enjoyed our stay with Peggy and Barry. They make sure you feel right at home and you are comfortable. I loved the wood burning stove in the evenings which made the place toasty warm. The dogs are great as well. A great place for a Gore ski weekend!

We stayed at the alpine homestead last weekend. The house is beautiful and I especially liked how they decorated the outside with little fancy tables and rocking chairs etc. The surrounding is very peaceful and calm. It is about half an hour drive from the lake beach which is not too bad. The hosts were very warm and friendly and offered great breakfast every morning we stayed there. I agree with other reviews that the breakfast is multi course and very delicious. I would recommend this B&B for a quick retreat on the lake!

We stayed at the Alpine Homestead as part of a work retreat and could not have been more pleased! Peggy and Barry were fantastic, tremendously attentive hosts! They acclmpdsted our every need and were more than happy to tailor our stay to oue schedules. They prepared delicious, extensive, multi-coursed breakfasts adjusted for our dietary needs and were more than happy to provide the recipes for the dishes we couldn't live without (which was most of them). The rooms were comfortable, well kept, and spotlessly clean, as was the entire house. Overall it was a complete pleasure staying with Peggy and Barry, and we couldn't have asked for more. I would recommend Alpine Homestead to anyone and everyone.

My kids love to camp with their papa, but this mommy prefers soft beds, air conditioning and private bathrooms. The perfect solution: drop the kids at camp and escape to this wonderful B&B. Peg and Barry were very friendly and made us feel right at home. The house is beautifully renovated and immaculate. As an added bonus, breakfast was amazing too! We've already tried their recipe for baked oatmeal at home. YUMMY!

Our visit to the Schroon Lake area was anchored by staying in this lovely B&B. The owners, Peg and Barry, have turned a large, old home into heavenly comfort with many amenities. They offered suggestions to area events, and we learned some new recipes to try at home, as well. We recommmend this place because of its roomy layout and beautiful furnishings. It is well-stocked with culinary and serving items that the hosts really do use to tend their guests. We plan to return next year.

Room Tip: The Irishtown Suite has a side window that looks out into the mountains - the Alpine view!

What a place to visit for hiking and relaxation away from the hustle and bustle of crowded roads and busy lifestyles. The Homestead is very comfortable and inviting, Peg and Barry are so amiable and hospitable, and that porch...! That's the place to sit on rockers or wicker and read or chat. Breakfasts are superb--lots of variety, healthy, fresh ingredients, home-made baked items, and very nice presentation. This experience makes me want to fore-go motels/hotels when travelling but a very high standard has been set.

Room Tip: King-size bed was excellent.
