      When we showed up we were amazed at the cleanliness of the entire home, it was spotless. Our 5 day stay there was without incident, it was the perfect location for my entire family to gather - all 10 of us. Next time we are up North we will be sure to see if this house is available.

      We had a great stay again for the 3rd year in a row in the house. Everything was clean upon our arrival and all of the house amenities were working great. One thing to make this house even better would be to add a stock pile of extra beach towels for the hot tub/sauna. Thanks! We will be back. :)

    • Great Family getaway in this beautiful home. AMAZING!

      Reviewed by Laura H. on March 02, 2017 for their trip during February 2017

      I cannot say enough about this home. 15 people came to celebrate a 50th birthday. The house is AMAZING. Two Spacious beautiful bedrooms upstairs with their own bathrooms. Another smaller bedroom upstairs, perfect for a couple or teens. On the main level, a nice sitting area with fireplace and a nice spacious kitchen area with seating for 12. And another main bedroom with a private bathroom. Also on the main floor off the kitchen is a 1/2 bath. Now, my favorite, was the lower level. There are two spacious bedrooms that have doors to the outside facing the stadium fire pit and mountains. Also on this level is a sauna and a beautiful huge bathroom with a STEAM Shower. I LOVED IT. The house has a beautiful wrap around porch giving you beautiful views of the mountains. Also on the porch is a hot tub. The home is also only 5 miles or so from the ski resort and about 15 miles from Lake Placid. The house is immaculate and top notch everything!!! The owners were very accommodating and respond quickly. They even let us know when the ski lift tickets were on sale for 50% off. I highly recommend this rental. We will definitely be back. Thank you so much!!!!! We were greeted by Kim when we arrived and received a welcome phone call from Todd to make sure we had everything we needed. 5+ stars in all areas.

      Reviewed by Robin S. on February 25, 2017 for their trip during February 2017

      Plenty of space for three families on our recent ski trip. The kids and adults alike loved soaking in the hot tub after a day on the ski hill. Great location too as it's 2 miles to Whiteface and a short drive into Lake Placid. Todd the owner is very responsive and accommodating. We are repeat renters with Todd and cannot recommend him and his properties highly enough.

      Reviewed by Christopher L. on January 21, 2017 for their trip during January 2017

      We stayed at the Whiteface Mountain Chalet the week of January 8th and from the moment we stepped in the house until the time we left we absolutely loved our stay. This trip was a chance for my wife and myself to celebrate our recent graduation from USF, as well as have an opportunity to spend time with friends and family before relocating to our next duty station with the Navy. This house provided the perfect environment to enjoy all that Lake Placid, Wilmington, and Whiteface Mountain ski resort had to offer. Everyone enjoyed the home from its location and layout to all the extra perks to include the hot tub, sauna, and steam shower-all of which were fully utilized! There's nothing like being able to tackle the amazing runs that Whiteface Mountain has to offer and braving old man winter to be able to come back to a relaxing dip in the hot tub! The house was everything we could have asked for and more! Absolutely amazing and I highly recommend this place to anyone looking to shred the slopes or just enjoy all that the area has to offer!

    • Absolutely Perfect

      Reviewed by Tim K. on November 17, 2016 for their trip during November 2016

      Our group of 8 adults and 7 kids (ages 4-11) were perfectly well situated at Todd & Kim's lodge, situated at the base of Whiteface Mountain and just a 15 minute walk to the mighty Ausable River. Hot tub, sauna, steam shower are all as advertised. If you like to cook, the kitchen is well stocked with plenty of seating around a granite-topped island. There are ample towels, but you may want to bring extra paper products. The caretaker, Kim Colby, was very helpful and a great resource for local "goings-on." It is just a short drive to Lake Placid and the High Peaks - great for hiking and skiing. The fire pit is huge for those cold nights (we went over Veterans Weekend). I would highly recommend this place to persons travelling with their families or just looking for a pleasant couples getaway (which I look forward to when my kiddos finally grow up!). It's a three level unit - sauna, steam shower, 2 spacious BRs are located on the bottom; 1 Master BR, kitchen, living room & 1 BA main floor; 2 Master BRs & 1 BR third floor - so there's room to spread out, especially if you are looking to get away from your crew (not to mention the dynamite wraparound deck - wow!). Todd certainly takes a keen interest in his place and your stay - welcome call, follow-up call at the end of your stay, and it is very much appreciated. I hope that we get the opportunity to return in the spring. Thanks again Todd, Kim and Kim Colby for the kind hospitality.

      We had a wonderful stay at this house. The layout was perfect for four families (5, 4 and 3 yr olds and 3 babies too) to spend the weekend together. The kitchen is well stocked with all the gadgets...just like at home. The finishes are gorgeous and the house is very spacious. It was wonderful having the kitchen island were we could all gather together and we never felt cramped. Beds were comfortable and it was great that almost each bedroom had its own bathroom. We all loved using the hot tub, sauna and steam room. The little town is not far and we enjoyed the scenery while walking there. Even though it was a bit rainy the kids loved the yard and loved exploring up and down Abbey Lane, we especially loved the little rooster that was walking around! The owners and the caretakers were extremely helpful and accommodating. I would definitely book here again without any hesitation.

      Reviewed by Daniel H. on September 27, 2016 for their trip during July 2016

      This is not your typical review, as we did not actually get to stay on site. Due to a mistake in my booking, I accidentally booked this house for a month before our actual arrival. Todd phoned me three days after our scheduled arrival concerned about where we were. He could obviously hear from the panic in my voice that I was completely freaked out and worried that I had wrecked a twelve year tradition coming to this area. He calmed me down and immediately got on the phone and started searching for alternate housing options. Being in the middle of peak summer season, I figured that this would be impossible to find a place to accommodate all of us with such short notice. Within fifteen minutes Todd had called back and said he had called a friend and found us housing. Not only that, but had called in a favor and found us a place with a reduced rate. In addition he offered to let us stay for a weekend in the off season to make up for the week that we did not get to stay at his house. We will be forever grateful to Todd and Kim for saving our twelve year tradition! These are clearly wonderful people to work with who will go above and beyond to help you!

    • Wonderful home

      Reviewed by Matthew K. on September 16, 2016 for their trip during August 2016

      We had a great stay at this house. The layout was perfect for our two families to spend the week together with our dogs. The house is well stocked with kitchen gadgets like I would have never expected. The finishes are beautiful and the house is very spacious. It was wonderful having the kitchen island were we could all gather around together and you never felt cramped. The kids loved the yard and the wrap around deck. The beds were very comfortable. The couch and bean bag chair also very comfortable. I never thought we would be able to find somewhere to allow dogs that we also would want to stay at!! The only suggestions that I would have for the owners which are minimal at most is the screen door needed to be lubricated a bit, it frequently got stuck but we just made the kids go around to the other door that was maybe 20 feet at most away. Also what would have been lovely would have been the upgraded television channels. While yes... you are in the Adirondacks and its beautiful, when it rains and you're stuck in the house with the kids it would be wonderful to have the extra channels. Other than those two minor things; we had a wonderful stay. I would book here again without any hesitation.

      I can't say enough about this property. We booked it for our family's summer vacation. The six kids (ages 20-10), the dog and the wife and I had a great stay. The pictures don't do the home justice. We had plenty of room, the kitchen was perfect, the sauna, steam shower and hot tub were a hit. The property itself was huge, plenty of room for our family to play games and the fire pit was incredible! The views of Whiteface were breathtaking. The owners are truly wonderful and we won't hesitate to rent from them again. If you're looking for a great place to escape and enjoy the summer with your family, this is the place!

There is a nice walking-biking paved lane on the road just down the driveway, that goes to Wilmington. This path one way provided an approx. 1.5 miles - which was great for walking our family dog each day in addition to all the local hiking and nature trails in the area.

      We were excited when we arrived at this beautiful home. We stayed with 5 couples and everyone was satisfied with their accommodations!! The fire pit was exceptional and made for a great night activity with all of our friends. Lots of laughs and memories that will last a lifetime. The hot tub was another hit with our daughters. Although the stove was not working, the owner Todd, made certain that 2 small counter ovens were available to us. The bedrooms were comfortable and everyone enjoyed a meal sitting at the beautiful granite counter top!! Having wood available to us for the fire pit was very convenient - the idea of donating to the cancer society for the wood is a great idea and we were very happy to contribute. We attended the lacrosse tournament in Lake Placid and after some tough competition, we were able to relax in this home. The icing on the cake was when we were able to host all of the UNC commits and their families to a simple BBQ at the house. The following day, our girls, won the entire tournament. What a great finish!! Thank you Todd and Kim for allowing us to stay in your home. I would highly recommend this home for anyone looking to relax and have great amenities!! I definitely suggest renting a boat on Lake Placid - it was one of the many highlights of our trip.

      From my initial inquiry with Todd & Kim Ottenstein to ending my weekend at the Chalet was great. All my questions before my stay were answered quickly and thoroughly. Todd and Kim were very accommodating and helpful. The house was perfect. The sauna, steam shower, hot tub etc. were all very clean. The rooms were spacious and kept very well. A gas station and store were only about 10minutes away from the Chalet which was convenient. The speakers that were connected in the living room and outdoor area were great, especially if relaxing in the hot tub.

Seven of us rented it for a "cousins gathering" during an off season for the Lake Placid area (late April) but there was much to do and see. The property is located among hiking trails, scenic drives, fishing areas, Olympic venues and the Village of Lake Placid for dining and shopping. If you downhill ski definitely rent it for it's location to Whiteface! The chalet itself is amazing. Offering private baths and king size beds for most rooms. Five stars for upgrades and cleanliness. Great layout in the kitchen/dining/living room for visiting. Views from the house and the set back of the property offer a mountain setting and privacy. Unfortunately, we were too busy to partake in the sauna, hot tub or steam shower but definitely plan to our next visit. The fire pit and wrap around deck is great for relaxing, visiting and stargazing! We would definitely stay here again. Kudos to the owners!!!

      We rented the property to celebrate my husbands 50th birthday. We had people coming and going throughout the week with 16 adults staying on Sunday. The house is very spacious with a large kitchen dining living area that encourages you and your guests to spend time together. This area opens out onto a huge wrap around deck that has the hot tub and a table and chairs, it also overlooks the amazing fire pit below and Whiteface Mountain above.. The bedrooms have large beds most have private baths. We choose to take a downstairs room to have an exit to the fire pit and to stake claim to the steam shower and sauna. The floors in the downstairs area are heated the steam shower is awesome! The kitchen has all the pans and appliances you should need with a good set of knives and large pots to cook for a multitude. There is place settings for 16 with wine and drink glasses as well. This is a space meant to enjoy and entertain. I did note in another review it was thought to not have enough seating space but be aware that referes to couch space. We did a test and could seat 6 people comfortably on the couch 2 in the bag chair and there are at least 12 bar type chairs around the island which provided great space for more than on cut throat game of Yahtzee. You are a short ride to Lake Placid and Saranac both of which have a good selections of shopping and restaurants be aware however most restaurants are closed Monday and Tuesday. There is a full sized supermarket within 15 minutes with prices comparable to our home stores no price gouging so I recommend you shop for most of your stuff instead of carting it. The Hungry Trout is just down the road and is more than good! We had garbage pick up and a visit from the exterminator for routine care both were nonintrusive and professional We had the pleasure to run into Todd at the Trout and could thank him in person for the house and the memories we will have forever. If you are brave don't miss the bobsled if you crazy do the skeleton .

The living space is a little small, but the kitchen is solid (except for a small issue with oven temperature) and opens up to the living area so the cooks aren't isolated from everyone else. Todd was super responsive, very nice and accommodating. The property is big and setback from the street/neighbors enough to offer seclusion. The view of Whiteface Mtn is really nice and massive fire pit outside was a lot of fun.

The beds were extremely comfortable. We loved it so much, we are going to make it an annual couples trip!! Thank you Todd and Kim for sharing your home with us! You were a pleasure to work with and we look forward to booking again next year! Thank you for helping make my husband's birthday a very memorable one!

      Owner Response: What can I say other than thank you very much and I can't wait to see you next year we do everything to make our homes perfect for you upon your arrival and apparently you love this house as much as we do. We are building our fifth home now so will have more options for you to choose from next year again thank you very much from Todd and Kim

    • This home is perfect for a large group of people.

      We are a group of 10 women that get together every 6 months for what we call Doe Camp. This house was perfect. The bedrooms were large with a TV and fan in every bedroom. Plenty of bathrooms for 10 women. The kitchen and living room was open with a large marble counter top bar for all to hang out. The hot tub, sauna, and steam shower were the perfect places to hang out and relax. The fire pit was the best I have ever seen!!!! It had the perfect lay out!!! We found a trail along the river that was just amazing for a beautiful afternoon walk. The house was very clean when we arrived. The hot tub was the perfect temp. the whole weekend. Kim and Todd you have designed this house for relaxation and comfort in mind for sure. The furnishings are of top quality. The only thing we were really missing was cell service for ATT. I want to thank you for the call the first evening we were there to make sure everything was fine and sharing this home with us and I WILL RETURN for sure.

      Owner Response: We are so happy that you had a great time, i have verizon and it gets 4 bars in most of the Adirondack Park At&T is weak up there, we are glad you love the home like we do i will get you a phone card for your next visit.

    • Perfect house for a group getaway!

      Reviewed by Lisa S. on October 11, 2014 for their trip during October 2014

      The photos do not do this house justice. We had a large crew and it was the perfect size for us all. We loved gathering around the kitchen island for every meal. Everything was top-notch and decorated with class. The fire pit was perfect for S'more making. And, the view of Whiteface Mountain was beautiful. While it's a little out of the way from Lake Placid, it is a great "hideaway" and you really feel secluded. The only thing we didn't quite like was the grill. It was small and in the front of the house. Not ideal for barbequeing. Otherwise, wonderful "home away from home". Thanks, Todd & Kimmy!

      Owner Response: Thank you for your review i will get an additional grill for the home and have that there for you the next time. The reason it is by the front those are the only steps of the wrap around porch and we do not allow grilling near the home or around the trees so we placed it in an area with stones under it to prevent any possible fires. I am so happy you loved the home thanks again Kimmy & Todd

      Whiteface Mountain Chalet was everything that we needed and more. The views were amazing, along with the daily walkby from a rather large deer. We enjoyed ALL the amenities - the hottub, steam shower, dry sauna and fire pit. The house was well-stocked with all the necessities you are looking for in a home away from home for a week. We dined in every night and enjoyed the ease of cooking in the kitchen. I highly recommend this to anyone wanting a Lake Placid vacation stay. Thanks to Todd and Kimmy for this wonderful vacation home - we already booked our stay for 2015.

    • Peaceful, relaxing, beautiful, private treasure!

      Reviewed by Kim T. on July 20, 2014 for their trip during June 2014

      Our family had the pleasure of staying in this newly constructed, gorgeous vacation home! Our intent was to have some time to enjoy each others company for a few days. We definitely chose the perfect house and location to do just that! The house is so comfortable it makes you feel right at home the minute you settle in and it was immaculate! Each of the bedrooms is roomy, have beautiful quilts and decor on the walls, and have plenty of closet space, a TV and a fan for your sleeping comfort. It was a challenge for us choosing which room we were all taking; they all are such beautiful rooms. The master bedroom on the top floor is the gem of all gems!! The bathrooms were all spacious, beautifully designed, fresh and clean and provided us with plenty of towels. The living room and kitchen are an open layout giving it such a cozy feeling and the counter was quite lovely to gather around to chat. The chef's kitchen is an understatement as to what it offered while we prepared our meals. Each morning before breakfast we enjoyed sitting in the hot tub on the back deck, listening to birds chirping while overlooking Whiteface and the surrounding Mountains. Wow! What a way to get our day started! During the days we spent our time out and about taking a few short hikes. The decision was difficult on where to hike because there are so many close trails, say nothing about all the high peaks we could've hiked within close proximity. We took a ride up the Whiteface gondola, went kayaking on the AuSable River, took in the shops in Wilmington and drove to neighboring Lake Placid, Keene, Keene Valley and into Saranac Lake to shop some more, take in some of the Olympic Venues and enjoy the beautiful scenery. In the late afternoons we headed back to the chalet to relax and unwind. We prepared some awesome meals and enjoyed them dining on the back deck among each other's company overlooking the yard and beautiful mountain range. We followed dinner by having bonfires at the massive fire pit sitting in the most comfortable Adirondack chairs. We took steam showers and saunas in the wee hours (a must if you've never taken one). What a way to end our days! This chalet has an overall presence of relaxation and peacefulness and if that's what you're looking for in a vacation home then this is definitely the place for you. It's a true gem! The area too offers so many outdoor adventures. Our only complaint is that it went by too fast! Ty Todd & Kimmy lovely place you do it right!!

      Owner Response: All we can say on that review is WOW! Thank you Todd & Kimmy

      The listing for this property is authentic. My family dined on the wraparound deck in the evening, enjoying the views of the mountains; and, given the home’s proximity to Lake Placid and to Whiteface Mountain, days were filled with hiking, browsing the unique shops in Lake Placid, and visiting the Swedish Hill Winery. The home was immaculate and I would definitely recommend it!

Great restaurant-The Hungry Trout's "McDougall's" bar is a must for a nice dinner out, only two mins from the property. First timers should go to the town of Lake Placid, twenty-five mins drive to explore the Olympic memorabilia-like the Museum and Skating Rink; take only a few more mins drive to the Olympic Center to see Bobsled, Olympic Jumps, the Olympic Torch at the Horseshow Grounds, sample wine at a winery and enjoy the quaint town, including the Lake Placid Pub and Brewery. We, as winter sports enthusiasts enjoyed Skiing Whiteface Mt., Cross Country Skiing, and Iceskating on Mirror Lake. This beautifully maintained property and courteous and concerned owners gets every one of our guest's votes for a repeat stay.

      Thank you Todd and Kim, the Whiteface Mountain Chalet is absolutely amazing; the craftsmanship and décor were stunning. The newly constructed and well-maintained home, with its many amenities and magnificent views of the mountains, was a perfect place for a hiatus. I almost forgot about the sub-zero temperatures as I enjoyed the fireplace and steam shower, but my wet hair froze as I sat in the hot tub on the deck enjoying the view of Whiteface Mountain – but it was worth it! By viewing your video I knew what the home looked like; but, admittedly, being there was much better than what I’d visualized. I would wholeheartedly recommend your luxurious rental to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation.

      Once again we were thrilled with the accommodations, from the moment we walked through the door til the moment we ended our vacation we felt as if we were surrounded by luxury. I have rented from Todd before and this house surpasses them all. I invited eight friends on this trip and each and everyone of them were taken in with the many things the house had to offer. Early mornings and evenings in the hot tub followed by a warming steam shower to end the night in was amazing. The early morning view from the deck was breathtaking. We built a bonfire and it was awesome to be outdoors in the snow foraging for wood around the area. The kitchen and living area was perfect for dinners and games in the evening. Once again Todd was a great host calling to assure us the house would be ready and sending pictures to show us the progress the builders were making. I have rented several houses from Todd and have never been disappointed. We'll be back next year and look forward to sharing this lovely home with friends and creating memories that will last a lifetime.

We cooked some wonderful meals in the incredible and well supplied kitchen. We enjoyed sitting around the warm stone fireplace in the evenings playing games while sipping our cocktails. Our days were filled with shopping in nearby Lake Placid, going for a sleigh ride and we even rented some snow mobiles for a few hours. The house is immaculate and beautifully designed with no expense spared on the fine finishings.

There is not a bad bedroom for you or your friends to rest their heads in, all are very spacious and comfortable.
