Specific Rate Details
The Marble Mountain Chalet was everything we were looking for and more. The view was great and the place was spotless. When we arrived the wolves were howling next door, it was quite the reveal. As a group of cyclists, climbers, and hikers this rentals location was fantastic- close to all activities. And having a soak in the hot tub- or sauna- or steam shower was heaven after a long day in the mountains. We wished we could have stayed longer. We will be back!
We enjoyed our stay at Marblehead Mountain Chalet. The home was comfortable especially the beds. We had fires in the firepit three nights of our stay and the teenagers especially liked the hot tub. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed for cooking. The location was convenient to everything, yet felt very private and secluded and peaceful. The only thing that would have made our week perfect, would have been if it hadn't rained so much.
The property is Great! Each room has a king bed, which made deciding Rooms between couples very simple. Everything was clean and super organized. The fire pit is great. Todd was very easy to communicate with and even made sure we made it there safely. The house is right down the road from an wild animal sanctuary. I would definitely check that out. The house is close to a lot of fun activities as well. Not a far drive from town either. Very please with our stay and will be renting from this couple again.
There is absolutely not enough words to describe what an amazing experience we had in this beautiful cabin. From the start Todd was friendly, accommodating, and available to our questions and needs. The cabin was fully equipped, super clean and was more than specious to accommodate our family of 11people. The area was very lovely and provided plenty of opportunities for those who wanted to discover the outdoors. For those of us who just wanted to relax we used the hot tub, sat by the fire & bathed in the sun. The swing downstairs was an amazing addition for those who wanted to grub a book or just relax outside. We can't wait to visit this place again maybe in the summer. Thanks Kimmy & Todd for making our holiday super special, Batia & Family P.s. Thank you Kim, the caretaker, for being available to answer our questions.
We loved our stay. It was spotless. Very well cared for. Plenty of space. The fire pit was awesome. There is a wildlife reserve two doors down with wolves, fox, birds, etc. A definite must see. Free admission. We could hear the wolves howling from the house - very cool. 20 minute drive from downtown Lake Placed with very nice shops and restaurants. Would highly recommend this home, and would definitely stay again!
From the second I booked the place, Todd was an excellent host. (literally called me the same day) Very accommodating and welcoming. Couldn't ask for a better experience from him and our caretaker Kim, who was uber-responsive with questions during the visit. The place is spectacular. Everything feels brand new, very clean and tons of room. We are definitely staying here again.
We could not be more satisfied with the decision we made. The kindness and concern of the owner and his wife was overwhelming during the process and the house was impecable and very very nice. Hope we can return in anear future. We love the time we spent there.
We had a great time at the Marble Chalet! The chalet is very comfy (including heated floors in the basement), the kitchen is well equipped, and the place was impeccably clean when we arrived. We needed some help with the heating system and Kim was able to help us over the phone. Great service, and great place. It's the second time I stayed in one of their cottages and I'd recommend them. Just be aware that the regular check-out time is a bit early (10am) - but arrangements might be negotiable if you are willing to put in some extra $.
Truly amazing house and property. Unfortunately the ski conditions weren't great and it would have been a terrible trip if staying in a hotel but luckily we had marble mountain. Will be back again.
Best spot in Wilmington! Hands down! Thank you so much.
This is our second time staying at the Marble Mountain Chalet. It has yet to disappoint. The amenities are perfect for a weekend or week-long stay. You're 3-minutes from Whiteface Mountain, steps from several hiking trails and fishing by the Ausable River and even a touch of wildlife at the Adirondack Wildlife Refuge. You will literally hear the call of wolves and coyotes from the hot tub! Don't worry, they're enclosed. The hot tub, steam shower and sauna are everything you need to refresh your muscles and bones from a long day around the mountain. There are ample places to pick up firewood to stoke the bonfire in the outdoor area. The owner and property managers are very interactive with you leading up to your stay to make sure you have everything you need - including the previous day's snow report. It was nice to have such a wonderful, pet-friendly space for our group. There are only a few small restaurants/bars in the area, so I recommend grocery/liquor store shopping before you arrive to ensure your fully-loaded kitchen is stocked. You'll find you won't want to leave anyway!
We had two families at the home each with children and had plenty of room. The home was comfortable and cozy.
Had a wonderful time! Look forward to coming back:)
Thank you Todd of letting us use you great house. We spent there excellent time. House had everything that we could possibly needed. Saunas, hot tub and outside fire pit were addition to overall great experience. Ski slopes were very close so it take literally 4min to get there. We will be definitely back.
My wife and our adult children had a great time at Todd and Kim's property. Refreshing to stay at a VRBO that exceeds pictures and description. The home is professionally managed, modern and up to date. Everything works flawlessly. Minutes from Whiteface's base, the location works well for skiers. Thanks again!
The Marble Mountain Chalet was a beautiful and well kept home. Everything was perfect from the incredible back yard veiws to the convienece of the location. There was more than enough room for our party of 10 and there was plenty to do in the surrounding area. We had an amazing time and will definitely consider coming back.
Let me preface this with, I've never gone to Lake Placid, or rented a cabin/house prior to this. With that said, I couldn't have started with something more welcoming. This home, and I say home because the feeling was exactly that. It wasn't sterile like a hotel room, we're in the woods, and the place felt absolutely organic. From the smell of wood outside the home to the beautiful pressed mud tabletop in the kitchen. There were subtle details that made me feel like people live in their and loved it. A small little wooden sculpture adorns the stairs to the basement. The sofa was slightly worn like a lot of time was spent hanging out around the living room. The beds were comfy and warm. Mind you, these are not complaints rather compliments of making the place feel like a home and not a hotel room. The kitchen was fully stocked with the necessary utensils to make a full turkey dinner on Thanksgiving, need be. My short two day stay prevented me from fully utilizing the kitchen but I will return and I will cook in this magnificent kitchen.The scenery from the home was absolutely gorgeous. At sunset, sitting on the deck and watching the sun shine through the trees just before it hides behind the mountains in the background is absolutely relaxing. The hot tub is in an equally well positioned area to do the same. The home is close to many different locations to visit, including a small hiking area with a waterfall in it and a wildlife sanctuary. The town further north has few stores but one supermarket hosts most of your needs. And don't let the steely nature of the ladies behind the deli counter fool you, they have a wicked sense of humor.Lastly, I wanted to mention that if you wake up in the early hours, you'll be treated to the eerie howling of the wolves(remember that animal sanctuary), it's not one or two, but rather a chorus of them that will bring chills to your spine. It was spectacular to wake to them, albeit a little surprising when I was staying there.All in all, it's an absolutely unforgettable experience and for sure will be a repeated visit for me and my family in the future.
I had family come over from Germany and we rented the house for 5 nights at the beginning of October. They were impressed by the size of the rooms and how comfortable everything everything was. The hot tub was great too and at night you can sit at the outdoor firepit, roast marshmallows, have a beer and hear the nearby wolves howl. The house is in top shape and located on a quiet road not far from Wilmington, so a good night sleep is guaranteed. There are some hiking trails and the wildlife refuge nearby and if you like cycling its the perfect location to start for a roundtrip on scenic side roads.
The home was situated in a beautiful parkland area that in the middle of nature (mountains, lakes, rivers). It was absolutely beautiful!!! It was close enough to Lake Placid for easy access but far enough away to really enough the outdoors. We thought we would go into Lake Placid for a number of meals but the home was so comfortable that we ended up eating there all but one time. The home looks brand new and it is really well maintained. It was large with 4 bedrooms all with king size beds and lots of space. The open ceiling kitchen - living room really set the home off. We spent most of our time here socializing as the food was prepared. Everything was there to make many memorable meals. The hot tube was very popular after spending the days out enjoying the countryside. We had great views of the mountains and forest. After enjoying beautiful sunsets over the mountains we were captivated by the amazing display of stars. There were so many more things to do than we originally thought and we ran out of time before we could even get half way through our list. The drive up Whiteface mountain gave us some amazing views for miles in every direction. There were also a number of different trails to the gorges that run along the Ausable river that make a great day outdoors! So many trails to hike and enjoy the scenery. Probably the most interesting place we visited were the wildlife refuge that was close to the house. They had a number of wolves, coyotes and many eagles and other large birds. The home is a perfect place to meet up with friends and family. It is a great get-away from the craziness of the city. I would recommend it and we plan to come back soon. Marie and Don
A wonderful place! We had a great time, and it had everything we needed! I would definitely recommend this place!
Todd and Kim couldn't have been more accommodating or welcoming. What a lovely stay at their beautiful chalet. The location, amenities and layout are top notch and fit our needs perfectly. Hubby and I loved the main floor king master as well as our son and his girlfriend enjoyed the privacy and comfort of the top floor king master. WOW. 4 king bedrooms to choose from and no one arguing who gets the "nice room" because they all are! The mattresses, pillows and bedding are dreamy too. Kitchen was a delight to prepare meals in for 'foodies' like us and a snap to clean up . The deck has wonderful views of the mountains, MASSIVE fire pit and lush forests. Can't imagine how spectacular the views must be when Fall is in full glory, because they were pretty amazing even in early September. The fire pit has comfortable seating for large groups and is perfect for toasting campfire pies under star lite nights and the mystical, eerie howls of wolves. This chalet is built for comfort, convenience and great memories. We can't wait to come back for more. Thank you Todd and Kim!
We loved the house, the space and the amenities. Having the hot tub and sauna made for some much needed R&R. We were so close to swim spots, Lake Placid sights and shopping, the wolves at dusk. We really enjoyed our time. Thank you!
From start to finish this experience was amazing! Todd and Kim could not have been more helpful or accommodating! We felt a personal connection from the minute we made our reservation until a phone call from Todd about 30 minutes after we arrived. We had no problems at all while we were there. The house itself could not have been more equipped with many amenities too numerous to mention. The place was immaculate and was lacking in nothing. The views are exactly as described-and the deck and hot tub area was so nice to relax after a long day of sightseeing and/or hiking. We had a family of 7 there and had more than enough rooms and space for everyone. It is conveniently located so no where is a very long drive. We totally enjoyed the Wild Life area right within walking distance and loved hearing the wolves! Just an amazing, perfect vacation in all senses - Thank you Todd and Kim for sharing. Would highly recommend this property to anyone! Don and Grace Jack Byron, NY
We spent a week here and loved everything about it. The location was great, the lodge had all the features we would ever want. The owners are great to work with. It was just a fantastic experience. Highly recommended!
Marble Mountain Chalet is a wonderful place to come "home" to after a long day of hiking. We spent a lot of time settling the tired bones into the hot tub on the deck. The large kitchen was great for gathering and eating leisurely meals. The many windows in the back of the house allow you to see the beautiful forest behind the property. The views, fresh air, and wildlife sounds make for a relaxing experience. We have stayed at several of Todd's and Kim's houses. They have always been clean and ready for us to enjoy. We will definitely be going back again.
This place was exactly how it was described. The cabin was very clean, well maintained with everything we needed to enjoy our vacation. The hot tub was great to come back to after a long day of hiking in the Adirondacks ...relaxing on the deck and enjoying the awesome mountain view. Also, the steam shower was a plus. It is conveniently located about a 15 min drive to Lake Placid and access to High Peaks Region of the Dacks. My wife and I loved this area. One other point of interest- there is a wild life refuge within walking distance of the cabin- definitely check it out. We could here the wolves from the refuge howling at night which was awesome. Highly recommend staying at this place if you're looking to vacation in the area.
We have rented from Todd & Kim now five times at four different vacation homes in Wilmington. We loved them all! The housekeeper Kimmy, does a great job makes your vacation really great!
Not only was this home wonderful but the owner was great as well. Would highly recommend and will be staying here in the future!
We had a great time at the house. There was seven of us who went and there was plenty of room for everyone. The house was gorgeous and there was plenty of activities to do around the house that weren't that far away. We will definitely rent again. Highly recommended.
Sunday-Thursday. My other half came up with our three boys, ages 2.5, 6.5, and 8.5 years old, for Sunday night and left Monday night so the boys didn't miss school. My mother, sister and brother-in-law came up the next two night and I had one night to myself. About an hour after my arrival, I was greeted with a phone call from the owner, which I felt was a lovely touch. This home was absolutely immaculate, with every possible amenity. The views were incredible, and I loved waking up with the wolves! ;) I could not have asked for a more restorative vacation. I hope to have the opportunity to rent from Todd in the very near future! Cassandra M.
Great cabin within the beautiful Adirondack Mountains. Secluded for privacy with all the amenities you would expect from a 5-star resort. Wonderfully stocked kitchen for those who enjoy cooking. Best of all, Todd and Kim were extremely accommodating and very easy to communicate with. Overall, a fantastic experience!!
We rented this home for three nights with friends from out of state. They had never been to the Adirondacks and cant wait to come back. We will be making this our annual trip for sure. The house was exactly how it was described on the website. The house accommodated 4 adults and 5 children perfectly. The house was very kid friendly and there was so much space for them to play. The Large marble counter top was awesome for playing games and family meals. Todd contacted us immediately to help with booking the home. The process of checking in was very easy and everything was well marked within the home and instructions were very clear. The hot tub and sauna were great and we spent a lot of time in them. The highlight of our trip was waking up to the wolves howling from the sanctuary next door. I have driven by the sanctuary many times and never knew how incredible it was. It is a must if visiting this home. We are so grateful that Todd and Kim have opened these homes. Life is about making memories and we made an everlasting one.
Owner Response: We cant top that !!! Thank you again Todd & Kimmy
We had a wonderful time at this property! It was very clean, and well taken care of! Loved the kitchen!Todd was excellent at returning my emails quickly! Would love to stay again!
Owner Response: It's important that our homes are kept clean at all times we appreciate the compliment hope to see you soon thank you Todd & Kami
2nd different chalet we rented from this owner and once again they cannot disappoint! Great wrap around porch with view of mountains. Fire pit and sounds of the wolves from the wildlife refuge 2 driveways down made it feel like a great getaway. Amenities were top knotch , hour was maticulously cleaned and appreciated a sterilized playpEnfor our newborn. Took full advantage of sauna, steam shower and hot tub. Todd and Kim do it again! Can't wait to get to you again soon!
Owner Response: We are building a new 2 bath 2 bedroom chalet for you come and see us soon we will have 10 homes to pick from thanks for your kind words
Todd was an excellent host. Communications were prompt, congenial and directions were clear. Everything was in order upon arrival. The property had everything our group of six mature adults needed to relax and enjoy ourselves. We used all the amenities, including the firepit, the steam shower, sauna and hot tub. We cooked great meals in the fabulous kitchen and relaxed by the fire in the evenings. The two master suites were on a five star hotel level. The basement bedrooms were warm (heated floors) and spacious, with added bonus of direct access to the luxurious steam shower. Beds were very comfortable and all the linens were high quality. Kitchen was well appointed. We all enjoyed our time visting next door at the Adirondack Wildlife Refuge. Overall the property was very clean, everything functioned properly and was well maintained. We all had a fabulous time. Highly recommended!
Owner Response: That is why we do this because of you thanks. Todd & Kimmy
House was amazing, spotless, nicely decorated, had everything we needed and more. Beds were very comfortable. Loved the view from the deck and it was cool to hear the wolves howl from the wildlife sanctuary next door. Kim, the caretaker does an excellent job and the rest of the team. We will definitely try to make it back for another trip and will recommend it to our friends and family.
Owner Response: You are why we are building 2 more homes right now. Thank you and we will let you know when the new homes are done. Todd & Kimmy
Outstanding! Words really cannot describe this place. Spotless!!! We had a blast and Todd and Kim were so easy to get along with.
Owner Response: All we can say is AWESOME!!!! Thanks Todd & Kimmy
The house is great. Bedrooms have king beds and it is well equipped. It close to Lake Placid but not too close so you get a country feel here. The firepit is awesome. We will be returning in the future.
Owner Response: We are so glad that you're going to come back, we do everything we can to keep these homes perfect thank you so much for your review, Kimmy & Todd
If you are reading this review to help you determine whether or not you should rent this property, stop reading now and just book it! This gorgeous modern home tucked away deep in the Adirondack mountains is an absolute gem! My family and I had the pleasure of staying in one of the most beautiful vacation homes in New York, the Marble Mountain Chalet. Our first impression of the home was outstanding. Kudos to whoever cleans this house, it was unbelievably spotless! There was a lot of love and thought put into this house and you can tell almost immediately. Todd and Kimmy were there to answer every single question we had and were more than happy to explain each detail of this home. We are already looking forward to renting one of there other homes! Thanks again =]
Owner Response: Thank you i promise it will be better when you come back next time Kimmy & Toddy
We enjoyed a lovely 3 night stay at The Marble Mountain Chalet. The house easily accommodated 3 families (5 adults and 4 children.) All was exactly as described and actually exceeded our expectations. The house is perfectly located 5 minutes from Whiteface. All the amenities were in perfect working order and the kitchen had every pan, gadget, or utensil we could need. We were lucky enough to get fresh snow, but this provided substatial road noise as the plows went by several times during the night. The house is closer to the road then we expected (a good thing when you consider managing icy upstate driveways). Without the plows the road noise was negligible. Though the house is very well stocked with towels, sheets and soaps, renters should know not to expect ANY food items icluding basics such as cooking oil and sugar. I don't think this is a fault. In fact I'm sure it helps to keep things neat and tidy, but is helpful to know ahead of time. Both the owner and property manager were available for questions and were tremendously helpful in planning our stay. We did not eat out on this trip, but the house is conveniently located to restaurants in Wilmington and a short drive into Lake Placid. We would highly recommend this property and look forward to returning this summer.
Owner Response: Thank you so much for your kind words when we built the house we used R-60 insulation to calm down the noise from the road it's really the only time was snowplows I can ever hear anything when I'm not at home I'm so happy you have fresh snow that's a great bonus for you all of your comments about the house were fantastic and we really appreciate it we try to keep the house extremely clean and we don't want to leave anything for anyone that could be from someone else's germs that's why we eliminate everything from the house every time. We now have over 400 reviews and they're all five-star thanks to folks like you, Todd and kimmy
Me and my husband stayed at the Marble Mountain Chalet for our 2 year anniversary and let me just say that this home was by far the nicest rental home we ever stayed in! Todd, Kim and their staff do an unbelievable job maintaining their home, and making sure their guest are fully accommodated. I am very picky about where I stay and our last rental in the Poconos had me crying (no lie ask my husband) but your home made me sad to leave! Thank you so much for having us and we cannot wait to visit again!!!!
Owner Response: We would love to host you on your 35th & 50th &!75th Anniversary I promise the home will be better than new. Todd & Kimmy
The Marble Mountain Chalet is a gorgeous home. When we first entered the home, wow, it was clean and spacious. The rooms looked exactly as they did on the website. Each room had plenty of space, the kitchen is beautiful, stocked with everything you need to make meals with your family. The house is beautifully decorated, the art work really gives you the feeling of being in the Adirondacks. The grounds we very nice as well, the view of Whiteface and the surrounding mountains was terrific. The outdoor fire pit is a bonus, it is huge, with enough Adirondack chairs for 8 people. The deck was spacious, a good spot to sit, soak up some sun, have a drink and look at the mountains. We did not use the hot tub but it is very inviting, it is located on the deck facing the mountains. The windows in the kitchen and great room give you a view of the woods and mountains regardless of the weather outside. We loved our stay, thank you Todd and Kimmy, we will be back
Owner Response: What can one say when they see a review like that you are the reason why we built these homes and we are now starting the construction of our fifth home thank you again and I can't wait for your return next year from the bottom of our hearts, kimmy & Todd
This is a beautiful home. All my friends were beyond impressed for the value you get. I live around Manhattan and you spend 350 on a boutique hotel for one night and that's a little room. You get 4 bedrooms, amenities and just awesomeness all-around. Stay here you won't regret it. I know I will be back. Just make sure to take care of the cleaning lady with a nice tip. She gave you a nice clean house to walk in, so reward her for that.
Owner Response: Thank you so much i am very specific about how clean each one of our homes is. Thank you for taking care of our caretaker she is a great woman and does a great job of making sure your stay is well worth it. It is customers like you that i am so happy we built these homes. Again thanks Todd & Kimmy
Very nice property with good accomadations! Good location with easy access to hiking, fishing, Vermont, Olympic areas, and more! Had a few wonderful meals at the Hunry Trout Restaurant in Wilmington! Great recommendations from Todd! Very nice outside porch and fire pit to enjoy the evenings! Thanks for a good week!
Owner Response: Diania thank you so much for your kind words Kimmy & I would love to see you back next Summer thank you for everything also you left the home in perfect condition and that was very nice
This home is the lap of luxury. Extremely nicely decorated and it is the best equipped home we have rented. My only wish would have been to have more drinking glasses. This home is located in a prime spot to go to Whiteface Mountain mountain biking, numerous hiking areas, great white water rafting and Lake Placid for bobsled and luge. Activities for all age groups.an animal sanctuary is down the road and some nights you can hear the wolves howling. The hot tub is a great way to unwind after busy days. A great home with something for everyone. The owners were great with suggestions and called the first day to check on everything. You can tell they care about their homes and try to make your vacation a memorial one.
Owner Response: Dear Fort Wayne I will get mire drinking glasses. LOL thank you so much for the great review Todd & Kimmy
My wife and I stayed here with some of our family and it was the best vacation rental we've ever had. Super clean, all modern amenities, far enough away to have privacy and yet close enough to town. The fire pit is ridiculously amazing, as is the hot-tub. We will definitely be staying here again, and the owners are so friendly and easy going. You will not be disappointed.
Owner Response: Short and sweet thank you for your kind wirds we love our homes to!!!! Thanks again Todd & Kimmy
The cottage was just perfect for our needs (Family of 5 + another couple). The bedrooms were roomy, the kitchen was well laid out and extra perks were well appreciated. The views from the hot tub both day & night were amazing. The steam shower & sauna were welcome after a good day of skiing. Everything was close by (ski 5 min., Lake Placid 15 min., ) We also got to visit the wildlife refuge just down the street which everybody enjoyed. Will definitely be back!
Owner Response: Both Kim & I are happy you had a great time the views from this home are awesome. Come back next year and we will have it in the same or better condition we promise you that with over 175 five star reviews i think everyone knows we care about your time at our homes. Thanks again Kimmy & Todd
Great house! Will definitley consider going back again!
Owner Response: That was short and sweet. We hope you comeback too! We are updating our homes so that will help you to see what improvements we make each year. This year we are working on the landscaping and really going to make all of the homes shine. Thanks fir everything Todd & Kimmy
We spent Christmas with some of our family and enjoyed it immensely. We would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone and look forward to renting it again in the future.
Owner Response: We love the Adirondacks in the Winter it is so green and pretty with the snow everywhere. I am glad you loved it and we cant wait for your return. Thank you Todd & Kimmy
Wonderful, simply fabulous. The house is top notch. It's modern, lovely, clean as in brand-new clean, and quite cozy. All needs have been anticipated and provided for by the kind owners.
Owner Response: The home is 2 years old and we do everything we can to Keep it in perfect condition. We would love for you to stay with us again thank you for taking such good care of our home. Thank you Kimmy & Todd
This chalet and the small towns surrounding it were all a wonderful experience. The kitchen in the chalet is fabulous and well stocked, we had everything that we could possibly need. The owners and the leasing agent were both helpful and attentive. I appreciated a phone call from the owner once we arrived to make sure that we were enjoying ourselves and telling me a little more about the area. The home was exceptionally and perfectly clean. Our favorite features of the home were the dry sauna, steam sauna, fireplace, and the location. We made a couple trips into Lake Placid to buy groceries at The Green Goddess, a great place to shop for fresh organic produce. Our experience at Marble Mountain Chalet was great!
Owner Response: I think i posted my response but we get so many 5 star rieview i loose track. I can not thank you enough for your kind words we are trying our best to make these homes perfect for all of our guest! I cant wait until you stay at all 4 of our homes there. Thanks again Todd & Kimmy
This property was the perfect gathering spot for our family this fall. We had a fantastic and relaxed vacation while enjoying all the comforts of a five star resort. The house is conveniently located and accommodates large groups but also offers privacy for couples. The view from the deck is spectacular and the outside fire pit with Adirondack chairs was very impressive. The family enjoyed wine and s'mores after a fun day of watching the Olympic bobsled races, attending the Flaming Leaves Festival, hiking and shopping in nearby Lake Placid. The beautiful décor is well suited for the Adirondack location and creates a warm and cozy atmosphere. The bedrooms and baths are spacious, spotless and well designed. There is a sauna downstairs as well as an outdoor hot tub. The gourmet kitchen is equipped with every utensil needed to prepare and serve meals for a large group. There is a washer and dryer located on the main floor to alleviate packing extra clothing. This house offers comfortable beds, flat screen TVs in all bedrooms, and high speed internet connections. We will definitely recommend this rental to all of our friends and look forward to another visit during the winter. The owners put a so much thought into this home and it was a pleasure to stay here. Thanks to Todd and Kim for offering such fantastic properties. You will never be disappointed when renting any of their homes. What a gem in the Adirondacks! You may not want to leave.
Owner Response: You are the reason why we do this it makes us so happy to give you the very best of all Whiteface offers. Thanks Todd & Kimmy
A beautiful home fully equipped with everything that you need for a very comfortable vacation. The home provided a spacious layout with an open kitchen, a scenic deck with a hot tub, big bedrooms with great closets, and a fantastic outdoor fire pit. We were also very pleased that we could bring our small dog with us on our family vacation. During our long weekend, we enjoyed doing several day hikes in the surrounding area. We highly recommend the home and look forward to another stay there.
Owner Response: One great trail is the Flume water falls and the Flume Knob which is only 1/2 mile away from the home and it is a wonderful 3 hour hike. We are happy you loved the home and hope to see you back soon, Todd & Kimmy
From my first contact and all subsequent contacts everything was smooth, timely & very quick. It was a pleasure working with everyone involved with Marble Mt. Chalet.Excellent customer service I must say. All descriptions were accurate & the property was very clean as well as being well maintained. Marble Mt. Chalet was extremely comfortable for our group of 4. However, I believe it would be just as comfortable for a larger group as well. The rooms were all nice sizes, the beds were great, the towels & linens were plentiful & in great shape. The kitchen was unbelievable! It's advertised as a gourmet kitchen & that is accurate. The location was very convenient to shopping, skiing Whiteface , hiking trails & restaurants. When we return to the Adirondacks for some more hiking I will definitely want to stay at Marble Mt. Chalet again!
Owner Response: We thank you for your kind words. We would love for you to come back and stay at the other 3 homes we have and each of them are differant and in perfect condition so we know you would enjoy them. Thanks again Kimmy & Todd
This is a very comfortable home for a couple or a large group. It is spacious and very well maintained. The two story wall of windows across the back give a stunning view of the mountains as the light changes throughout the day. Nothing says togetherness like gathering around a roaring fire in the very large firepit out back. Comfortable chairs around the pit invite guests to talk over the day's activities while making s'mores and winding down. With the living room and kitchen sharing a two story ceiling, "spacious' is an understatement to describe the common areas. Bedrooms on three different levels give privacy for any sized group. The full sized washer and dryer help to cut down on the amount of clothing anyone needs to bring. That is a real plus with the baggage fees charged by airlines and room available in vehicles for personal gear. The house was well stocked with necessities. All was just as represented to us by the agent. The kitchen was very well appointed with every utensil needed to cook even a gourmet meal. Someone put a lot of thought into the location for this house. It is convenient to local amenities but far enough out to provide the true mountain experience most people are looking for. I would highly recommend this house to my family but, more importantly, I would highly recommend it to my best friend.
Owner Response: Wow! Need we say anything but thank you for seeing what we see Kimmy & Todd
We were on a work retreat and it was wonderful. The most relaxed trip I have ever been on. There were so many trails to take which we enjoy the handful we went on. So many sites to see while walking. The town Lake Placid was great we spent a few hours down there walking around into all the little shops. The dinners were prefect!! We had a rainy day which was spent inside and turned out gteat we took a suna and had massages followed by a nap then hot tub. This house has everything you need. The kitchen is stocked to meet everyones needs. It was just a great time and I hope to go back soon!
Owner Response: I am so Glad your Company took you on a retreat to our home. We hope to see you next year. We are planing on some more landscaping projects this Spring so it will be even nicer, Thanks again Kimmy & Todd
This home is by far the best rental home I have ever been at for the money, location, amenities & the overall beautiful design of the home is stunning. I called the owner this morning and told them that I am reserving the same week next year but I want to try one of there other 3 homes in the area so I asked them what they thought and they said they are all great just pick what you like and you wont be wrong. We drove by the other homes and they are right they are all fantastic. We couldnt get in they where all full but this owner is so easy tpo work with I wouldnt go any where else in the Adirondaks. The dry sauna was awsome last night and we are doing a huge outdoor fire tonight
Owner Response: This is very nice of you we try very hard to give every guest the best we can. Thank you for your kind words, Kimmy & Todd
This house was a great location for a relaxing week away. It is practically brand new with incredible amenities including a hot tub, dry sauna, wet sauna and a spectacular fire pit. There were 4 spacious bedrooms and 3 1/2 bathrooms that were very clean. There were great local restaurants like Rosalia's and the Hungry Trout and a small grocery store right down the road. Also, it was only a few miles drive into Lake Placid. The owner is very friendly and helpful making sure your stay is enjoyable. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
Owner Response: Thank You, Thank You, Thank You, Thank You & We love our homes so much it is nice to hear that you had a great time. Wait until our new house Whiteface Mountain Chalet is done in January of this coming year it will be AWESOME!
I really fell in love with the area and the house. It has everything you could want on vacation. I especially loved the sauna and the hot tub. Especially after a cold day on the mountain. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend this house with anyone!
Owner Response: I am so glad you loved the house thank you for telling us. I hope we see you this coming Winter we have done so many upgrades to the house I think you will be happy to see them. We are very happy you stayed with us and we love the house in all the seasons Winter is my favorite!
The house is beautiful and the beds so comfortable. The area is breathtaking. The difficulty we had was the lack of air conditioning or windows that could provide at least a cross breeze. This made it impossible to use the stove and oven as this increased the interior temperature. The temperature of the interior of the house averaged 88 degrees. After hiking etc. during the day we had trouble relaxing and hanging out in the common area as a family. While we understand the temperature does not usually get that high the house should have central air as even the bedrooms on the lower level were hot and humid. A high end rental home should provide comfort regardless. The rental agents were not helpful when we requested assistance and were rude on the phone. This is unfortunate as the beauty of the house and scenery was perfect. We will return to the area for further vacations, but will look for a home that provides air conditioning and rental agents that are geared towards accommodating guests.
Owner Response: Dear Traveler, Thank you for your review of our home. I apologize that you found parts of your stay lacking. As with most of the homes in the area, we do not offer central air conditioning but have added two air conditioner units to the upper level bedrooms as well as fans in all the bedrooms. Next year we are planning to add a large air conditioning unit in the living area of all of our homes as well. The details of the air conditioners and fans are very well detailed in our property description to ensure that guests may make an informed decision on where to spend their vacation. I apologize that you found members of our rental team rude. We take great pride in our homes and our customer service and it always disheartening to learn that a guest is unhappy with either of these.I believe you simply caught our team off guard when requesting to have a window closed at 10pm that you had just a few hours prior called to have opened. Again, I apologize that you found your stay lacking and wish you luck on your future travels.
On an overall scale of 1 to 10 my wife and I give it a 12 plus. This tastefully designed home was superb. The kitchen is fully stocked and extremely well designed. The layout of the home was perfect and can easily accommodate a couple to a group of eight extremely comfortable. The bedrooms are very roomy and Relaxing. We also cannot forget to mention the views. We enjoyed our breakfast every morning watching the sunrise over whiteface mountain and followed thereafter with our hot tub therapy. On a closing note the owners Todd and Kim ottenstein are very accommodating and cannot do enough for their guests. We have now stayed at all three of their homes and are looking forward to the new home being built for our stay next summer. Don't look anyplace else because elegance is here.
Owner Response: Thank you for your review of our home! We are so glad you loved the home just as much as we do!! We love hot tub therapy time and having our breakfast on the patio as well. Were excited for you to stay in Whiteface Mountain Chalet next year. Construction is coming along beautifully and its going to be AWESOME!!! Keep checking our website at www.adirondack-vacation.com for updated photos of the new house. Again, thank you for your review and we look forward to hosting you again next year! -Todd & Kim Ottenstein
Lots to do and see!! And tons of space! Beautiful property :)
We are going to stay from 6 to the 9 June. We have seen the place and it is unbelievable. We have stayed in their other propriety and I can tell you the place is incredible with everything you need plus with a stunning view. But one thing is very important for us is the service. I can tell you that owner with his team (Tyler, Steve and Wendy Hall) are there to make sure our stay will be remarkable. We asked them a special request for this weekend and they answered quickly and they arranged everything for our demand...You can't asked for more...I can't wait to arrive...to be continued on June 10th
Owner Response: Isabelle, Thank you for your review! We are so glad we could help out with your request! We hope your enjoy your weekend away and please let us know if you have any questions! If you get a chance, head over to the Hungry Trout for dinner one night. Its one of our favorites. Thanks again and have fun!!
This was a great little getaway. The layout of the house is perfect. An open common area where you can watch TV, cook, eat, and talk all at once. The hot tub was amazing....... it snowed while we drank beers and looked out into the woods. The steam room and sauna were nice extras. And there was plenty of space between the bedrooms. Nothing felt cramped. Great location..... not far from Lake Placid, but removed enough such that we felt it wasn't in the middle of town either...... and we were able to walk to the nearby nature preserve. We will DEFINITELY be back. Everything was hassle free. Five stars, no questions asked!!!!
Owner Response: Thank you so much for your review of our home! We are really happy that you enjoyed your time there. We love the location as well, close to lots but far from all! The hot tub is one of our favorite places to relax after a day of exploring the area. Thank you again for your review and we look forward to hosting you in the future.
Marble Mountain is a beautiful getaway retreat that offered me and my family a much needed relaxing vacation. The house is spitting distance from great skiing at Whiteface and has an incredible view of it from the hot-tub (which we enjoyed after the mountain took its toll on our muscles). A modern house with many great amenities made this trip a great success. Thanks, Todd and Kimmy!
Owner Response: Thank you so much for your review of our home! We are so glad you enjoyed the home and the area just as much as we do. Whiteface definitely has some awesome skiing and the hot tub is our favorite place to relax after a long day. Thanks again for your review, we look forward to hosting you and your family in the future! -Todd & Kim
Wow! What a beautiful house! The proximity to Whiteface was very convenient for our enjoyment of skiing and riding. The town of Lake Placid is really close-by for going out for the evening and checking out the shops. Also, the house is walking distance to a really cool nature preserve (replete with wolves, a coyote, foxes, a bobcat, and a variety of birds). My highlights: I felt like I was in a luxurious tree-house, our heavenly hot-tub under the stars and a light snow-fall, the awesome fire-pit and Adirondack chair circle, super comfortable beds, big modern bathrooms (and two types of saunas!), and a fabulous and wide-open common space for us all to enjoy each other’s company. What fun! I hope to stay here again soon! Thanks!!!
Owner Response: Gia, Thank you so much for your review of our home!! We are so glad that you loved our home just as much as we do! The amenities in the home are what make it special and were so glad you got to experience them. Wilmington and the surrounding area are perfect for family get aways, with plenty to do and see in both the winter and summer months. Thanks again for your review and we look forward to hosting you in our homes again in the future! -Todd & Kim
We really loved this place. Great new house, with comfy beds and all the amenities. soaked in the hot tub under the stars. Really convenient to the mountain, so we practically rolled out of bed on to the slopes. Fireplace was cozy warm, while steam bath and sauna were great extras after a busy day skiing. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.
Owner Response: We are so glad you loved your stay in our home! We love all of the amenities as well and the hot tub is the perfect spot for relaxing after a long day of skiing! Wilmington is also an awesome place to explore in the summer with tons of hiking, the beach that offers live music every night, kayaking and water sports, and the flume! Thank you for your review and we look forward to hosting you again in the future! -Todd & Kim Ottenstein
I have never been to a mountain for a get away, but this little town and Lake Placid being near by has made me love it. The house is a cozy and inviting. You have views of the mountains and Whiteface is no more than 5 minutes away. It was my first time snowboarding, so naturally I was sore from falling, but that is what hot tubs are for and the house not only offers a hot tub but a dry sauna and a steam room. And the beds are so comfortable to sleep it too. And the feel of the house made me feel like I lived there. I will definitely be back in the fall and in the winter!
Owner Response: Marta, Thank you for your review of our home! We are so glad that our home and the area have turned you into a snow bunny! It sounds like you got to take full advantage of the homes amenities, its so nice to come home from a long day of adventures and be able to relax in any of them. I hope you got a chance to head down to the Wildlife Refuge and check out the wolves and other wildlife that the folks there take great pride in rehabilitating. Thanks again for your review and we look forward to hosting you and your travel companions in the future! -Todd & Kim Ottenstein
Love, Love this house. It has all the amenities I want when I'm in a vacation rental. Hot tub, steam room, and dry sauna. And the beds are very comfortable. There's a huge fire pit out back also which we didn't get to use because it snowed everyday. I will definitely be back in the fall and winter!
Owner Response: Marta, thank you for your review of our home! We built the home with all of the amenities that we love and hoped guests would love them as well. The fire pit is definitely a fun way to relax after a long day of adventure. I hope you got the chance to check out all the land marks from the 1980 olympics, they give our little area quite a bit of character. Thank you again for your review and we look forward to hosting you in our homes again in the future. -Todd & Kim Ottenstein
Nothing better. My Wife and I arrived at the right time. The weather was perfect for skiing and snowboarding. It snowed nearly every day. However I am not writing this to give you a weather history report. This home has everything you will need for either a short 3 day weekend or a full week. It was clean and very well maintained. The Kitchen is amazing. It has the best counter top layout that will allow everyone to sit around and enjoy a meal or a few drinks together. The beds are extremely comfortable. In fact we both said to each other that we slept better this week than we had in a long time. The steam shower and sauna were fantastic as well. It allowed us to warm up after a day in the cold snow. The Chalet is only 5 minutes away from Whiteface. So it is just a short drive back and forth for your winter activities. Why would you stay 20 minutes away in Lake Placid when this home is right here? You can't ask for much more. The views are incredible. The added fire pit outside is an added bonus. To be honest we will be back again soon. There is simply nothing better around. Period. Chris and Kami from KDH, NC
As a Licensed Massage Therapist that provides on-site massage in the Wilmington-Whiteface region Marble Mountain Chalet was my favorite vacation rental to work in. The kitchen and living room were open with lots of light filtering through the large windows providing a picturesque view of Whiteface Mountain. The rooms are well decorated with ample space and the whole design of the house is well put. Loved that my clients could use the separate steam or sauna rooms before or after their massage to get the most out of their treatment. Bonus: The house is only a few minutes away from Whiteface and the owners are very accommodating to their guests.
It was what we dreamed about for our vacation it was so perfect we are coming back this summer but are trying one of the other home Todd & Kim own. Everything that was in the house was perfect just like we saw it on VRBO. The home was fantastic for the 8 of us and everything was 1st class, cant wait to come back this was the best rental home i have every rented
Spent four nights at Marble Mountain and it was awesome. The view is remarkable especially from the hottub and the deck. The backside of the house is all windows and it also provides for a view of the mountains at every turn. This is my second experience with this owner having stayed at Olympic Dreams. The house is well appointed in every way with large bedrooms, flat screens, steam shower and sauna on the lower level and complete privacy. The living room area is perfect for visiting and cooking at the same time with the large bar area and fireplace. I highly recommend staying at the homes offered by Adirondak Holiday you won't be disappointed. As a side note we had an intimate wedding service this trip and the house provided a romantic backdrop for a perfect celebration of the union of dear friends
My family and I decided to take a vacation to Whiteface Mountain! We spent days looking for the prefect chalet with all the modern day amenities and we came across the Marble Mountain Chalet. When we arrived we found the chalet to be clean, modern and everything that the website described and more. We had a wonderful time and plan on making our stay at the Marble Mountain Chalet an annual family vacation!
We LOVE this house! It has the best amenities of any property we have rented. The house is beautiful, well stocked with kitchen appliances, towels, etc. 4 king beds and plenty of room and privacy for everyone. Hot tub, sauna, fire pit AND steam shower. Huge TVs in every room, gorgeous countertops, and open common space for everyone to gather. What more could you ask for in a vacation home? Thanks again for a wonderful space to share time with family.
By far the best rental home I have ever stayed in! The bedrooms were all a great size, the kitchen had every utensil I could ever need, the outdoor deck was perfect for hangin out with the family, and relaxation was easily found anywhere on the property. The fire pit was perfect for the evenings, the hot tub and saunas were awesome after long days of hiking and biking, and the king beds were oh so comfy!! Todd & Steve were super helpful before and during our stay, ensuring we got the most out of vacation time! Thanks guys and we will return!
We recently had the great luck of staying at the Marble Mountain Chalet. We were dying in the heat of Washington this summer, so I called the owners to see if there were any cancellations at a nearby property they own that I found on this website. That property was booked, but he told me that construction on this property was just being finished and they were just accepting bookings. About a week later, we packed our car and headed to the Adirondacks. This house is well-constructed with very nice amenities throughout. The living/lounging area is open to the large kitchen, which has a beautiful and huge granite counter that must seat twelve or more people--great for large groups that want to eat and drink together. The appliances are obviously new and the kitchen is stocked with quality pots, pans, etc., not the cheap crap you often find at vacation rentals. The living room are is nicely furnished, as well as the bedrooms. Very nice deck, where we spent a lot time relaxing. The views are fantastic, not only from the deck, but also from the back of the house, which is comprised almost entirely of windows with views of the mountains and the valley. There were only three of us, but this house could easily and comfortably handle a large group. There are too many recreational activities to count. We did some hiking, as well as swimming and jumping off cliffs in a nearby river. There are also several decent restaurants in the area. This really is a great vacation rental. The owners have a couple other properties in the area and they really go out of their way to please you. We're looking forward to returning this winter to do some skiing and try out the sauna.
