Wonderful Stay

What a great stay. The house was very clean and new and exceeded expectations... it was even nicer than the pictures suggest. In particular, the outdoor hot tub after a day of hiking was perfect. Gene was extremely communicative and responsive. We had a very positive experience and definitely plan to return.

Amazing house, amazing amenities, amazing location

This is the second consecutive year I've stayed at Grand Pines Lodge (already booked next year for a third stay), and I would recommend it to anyone. The house is beautiful and very well maintained. We love sitting by the fire at night, and jumping in the hot tub. There are plenty of activities close by, be it whiteface, hiking, or driving into Lake Placid. Every person who went had a fantastic time and will be coming back next year. This house will be our fall vacation for many many years to come.

Not only is the house and the location beautiful, but what really seperates it from others is the owner, Gene. I could sense his professionalism and pride from our first conversation years ago (I've stayed at Grand Pines twice and a larger property of his another time, which was also beautiful), and it really shows in the product he puts out. At no point would I ever consider staying at anyone else's property.

If you choose this lodge or any of his properties for your Adirondack vacation, you will not be disapointed.

Book this Place!... Worth Every Penny!

Grand Pines Lodge was everything we thought it would be and more! We recently booked to celebrate my daughters 30th Birthday. Gene the owner was outstanding, he provided us with every detail well in advance and followed up to make sure we were enjoying our stay. The home is amazing and provides you with everything you could possibly need or want. We enjoyed sitting in the Jacuzzi on a cool evening with a fire burning in the pit. The location was fantastic with views of the Mountains, and secluded to make you feel like you were the only ones there. The Home is just a few miles from Lake Placid and White Face Mountain. The home itself has everything you would need to enjoy your stay from very comfortable beds, fully stocked with every kitchen item you could possibly need, and a game room complete with video games, Ping Pong Table, Blue-ray, Wi-Fi, etc. We took a great deal of time researching and looking for a place to stay, let me spare you some time, book this place, you won't be sorry. We will be back for sure! Thanks again Gene for making this a great weekend full of incredible memories.

Perfect Place for a Getaway!

This house was just what me and the guys needed for a weekend getaway. We used all the amenities and there was plenty of things to do to keep us from being bored. From ping pong battles to relaxing hot tub sessions, this place has something for everyone. The sauna and outdoor fireplace were perfect during the chilly ADK nights and if you wanted to stay indoors you can sit by the fireplace while watching hundreds of channels on the big screen tv. I would totally recommend this place to anyone who needs to get away and I look forward to coming here again in the near future.

Beautiful home with awesome views

We've stayed in Gene's properties a few times now and each time the experience gets better. He's a great guy to work with and provides gorgeous homes with all the amenities one could need. Houses are always clean and grounds are always well kept. If looking for a getaway with the family, look no further than high peaks rentals.

Beautiful house with easy access to towns and hiking!

We stayed here with six adults and one 2 year old, and the size was perfect. Large enough that we each had our own room to spread out without being on top of each other, but also a great sized common area and kitchen to gather. Ping pong table was a huge plus! The beds were high quality and very comfortable, with more than enough linens and towels. There was even a full size crib for our young one!

Perfectly placed to be able to easily travel into Wilmington and Lake Placid. Lots of hikes nearby, and Gene was always very communicative and helpful with any questions we had about anything. Will certainly be staying in one of Gene's rentals again!

Great place; perfect for a low key bachelor party. Unfortunately the sauna did not work. The directions for reset were followed and it still did not work. This was unfortunate as the rest of the experience was super.

Recent Stay

The property is excellent and the house is in great condition. The hot tub and sauna are very nice as well. The house is outside of Lake Placid so just make sure to stock up on groceries and shower supplies prior to arrival or early on in your stay so you do not have to venture out much. There is limited uber so you should plan to coordinate a cab service if you plan on venturing out into the town for drinks with no DD.
Overall it was a great experience and I highly reccommend the house.
