Rich and Sue’s place is in the perfect place. The space is great for multi-family gatherings. The view is amazing. We walked the trail behind the house as well took a trip into Lake Placid to shop and do some ice skating. Every question I texted Rich and Sue answered quickly. I would recommend this house to everyone looking for a great place to make memories!!

We loved Rich and Sue’s place! It was perfect for our extended family. The kitchen had everything we needed to make amazing meals. The home was spacious and comfortable. The hot tub was a big hit. The location was great, close to Whiteface and Lake Placid. We’d love to stay there again in the future.

Our stay in Lake Placid was amazing! The accommodations were perfect. The home is open concept and beautifully laid out for large groups to be comfortable together in one large space. We were a family of nine adults and two teenagers. The house is clean and well equipped with everything you need in the kitchen to prepare a meal, etc. We are fussy and this is the cleanest airbnb we ever stayed at!

The house is perfect for a vacation trip with 3-4 families. The house is spacious, clean, very well maintained, and equipped. The lower level has a heated floor for all the rooms, a huge plus for winter. Driving to the white-face mountain is just a few minutes away. The check-in is easy. The communications with Rich is always pleasant and timely. Highly recommended!

Very great house! Personal touches made it better. Hot tub was a bonus and the big coffee maker was a huge help with the number of guests. Amazing place, would rent again.

The house was absolutely amazing and the views were incredible. We had a large group of 16 people and there was so much room for activities for all of us, both inside and outside. There were little details added all throughout the house that made our stay even more enjoyable. Rich was extremely helpful and quick to respond to any questions I had. This place is truly the perfect place to stay for any occasion. Would 100% recommend to anyone.
Thanks you, Rich and Sue!

We visited Rich & Sue’s house with a group of friends for a long weekend. The house is absolutely beautiful inside and out. Rich was warm and welcoming when we arrived, giving us a tour of the property and also recommending area restaurants. The “Welcome” Champagne was a nice touch to kick off the weekend! The house is essentially brand new, the open floor plan is ideal for groups and the chefs kitchen is perfect for cooking and entertaining. The bedrooms were all large and spread out so everyone had plenty of privacy. Outdoor was just as beautiful and well kept as the inside, fire pit, grill and hot tub, stunning views of the mountains and a short walk down to the river. I would highly recommend staying at Rich and Sue’s, we will be back for sure!

I have never rented from any where other than a hotel or bed and breakfast. Well I hope I am not spoiled by this amazing experience! Everything about it was better than the next thing. The house is stunning and perfectly built for large crowd. I only hope people who stay here take care if it as well as the owners. You won’t be let down!! Top Notch!!

Beautiful house w an amazing view. Rich and Sue were so on top of things. So much room even with 14 of us. Huge kitchen - great for foodies and chefs. My kids loved the “bear den.” They made us feel so welcomed. You can feel this house was built with love!
