“excellent stay”
Reviewed 17 March 2018 for a stay in March 2018

Well equipped cottage with everything you need, very clean and warm; w/n 5 min drive to Whiteface and ~15min to lake Placid. Beautiful location, view from the bedroom upstairs and the kitchen is wonderful. Already booked for the next year. Thank you, Johnathan.

“Our favorite place to stay in the northeast!”
Reviewed 9 November 2017 for a stay in October 2017

This was our second stay in Johnathan's beautiful log home. We are very lucky that Johnathan travels so extensively so that we have the opportunity to stay at his hideaway in the woods. It was a beautiful time of year, and although the weather was not conducive to a lot of outdoor activities, we had a great time. The views from Whiteface mountain were stunning, as usual. We intend on coming back very soon. Thanks again for opening your home to us.

Welcome back a 2nd time to my home in the Adirondacks, and thank you for another nice stay, leaving the home clean, and of course you're welcome back anytime! This log home was intended to be my personal home but it's turned into a full time vacation rental, so I am building another larger log lodge around Lake Placid with epic Whiteface views, so that I can live there and/or possibly rent out as well! So if you're a slightly larger group, that's due to be finished summer 2018. Either way, send me a personal message anytime you return to the Adirondacks! And thank you for a nice stay!

“Excellent, well kitted out, cosy log home”
Reviewed 31 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Beautiful location, felt secluded, the log home is exactly as described including the wonderful views from the balconies of forest and Whiteface above. Very well kitted out, comfortable and warm, we loved it and would stay again. We were two adults.

“Beautiful Adirondack get-away...”
Reviewed 14 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Johnathan, just wanted to drop you a line and let you know that we had a wonderful time in your cabin. Your home is beautiful, and the location was stunning. Despite the cold, rainy weather, we managed to make the most of our time by shopping/dining in Lake Placid, and visiting a few of the local landmarks when Mother Nature permitted. I'm also a photographer, so I was able to get some gorgeous shots that I'm hoping prospective customers will get to enjoy, as well.

Future renters, we highly recommend this property--it is perfect for a simple couple's get-away, or even a full-on family vacation. The house is beautiful, and you will have endless fun exploring the great outdoors...you're in for a five star stay for sure!

Thanks for your review, and I'm sorry to hear the weather didn't cooperate for most of the 'touristy' things, but from a photographer's perspective, I love the how the rain saturates the bright green foliage colors of the forest and dampens the river rocks making for some excellent forest and stream photography! Welcome back anytime! Johnathan, owner
