Reviews for this vacation chalet rental in Whiteface Mountain, New York
Upstate New Youk
Don't rent if there are no reviews
August 24, 2015
You see, it has been almost 6 months since we were there. I couldn't decide whether I wanted to leave a review or not. But it's not fair to others not to. I'll try to be brief.... the jacuzzi tub wouldn't plug, so no bath. the gas grill had two empty gas tanks, so no grilling the steaks we brought. NO INTERNET, only one tv worked and that took 30 minutes on the phone with owner. refrigerator didn't keep food cold. flying ants the size of hornets, live and dead flies all over. dishwasher soap dispenser didn't work. the light over the bathroom sink kept tripping the breaker. couldn't make the gas fireplace work...after talking to owner, there's a switch across the room for it, who would ever think that? we were there a total of 34 hours and most of those were spent trying to make things work and it cost over $600. and a new pair of binoculars..when we got home, i left her two phone messages because i had left a brand new pair of binoculars there and wanted her to send them to me. no reply.. I sent an e-mail listing the problems with the cabin and asking for my binoculars and she called IMMEDIATELY, apparently so she could straighten me out. she spent 30 minutes carrying on at me about "you people" " city people" not understanding about living in a cabin....I LIVE IN THE COUNTRY!!! I have never heard from her again, nor do I want to, once was enough... TO BE FAIR, IF YOU GO IN THE SUMMER IT IS POSSIBLE THAT SHE HAS FIXED ALL THE PROBLEMS AND YOU MIGHT HAVE A NICE STAY THERE. It has taught me that if there are no reviews, I won't take the chance again. I think if there are only a handful of reviews I'd think they may be from relatives.
TrÃ¨s beau chalet!

Il y a tout ce qu'il faut pour cuisiner! Cependant Ã notre arrivée, nous avons apperÃ§u beaucoup de grosses fourmis. De plus sur la carpet du salon il y avait beaucoup de poils de chat. Les deux lits jumeaux sont très inconfortables. Vérifier les serrures des deux portes avant car difficiles. Pour le reste, c'est un magnifique chalet, près de Whiteface.

Thanks to Dana! We really appreciated and loved the chalet, great space and great location! The sauna was perfect after a day of skiing and the bedrooms and amenities were very pleasant!

Great place but not exactly as advertised.
January 6, 2015
When we arrived, the cleaning staff was not aware we were coming so we had a couple of glitches (upstairs beds not made up, key not left out etc...). The quickly fixed this for us and were very pleasant to deal with. The beds were clean but the kitchen floor was not -- there were cherios on the floor under the table. Overall, the place was clean though. I think that was more of a one-off exception. The chalet is beautiful and well cared for. There is NOT, however, a sofa bed in the great room as advertised so my children slept on a blow up mattress. The cottage sleeps 3 couples and 2 singles. One room with a King bed, One room with a queen bed, and a third room with 2 single beds and a sofa bed. Although there were lots of towels and linnens, the towels were fairly used and some of them were stained. The kitchen was missing a few basics such as dish towels and dish cloths. Overall, it was great and I would stay again, I'd just come a bit more prepared.

We did not stay in this home as no one ever responeded to our e-mail inquiry.

We inquired about this property and NEVER heard back from the owner. As a result, we rented another property. I guess all the other reviews about her being non-responsive were correct!!

This please was really nice and exactly as advertised. Lots of space, close to nature and the sauna was fantastic after a day on the mountain. Directions were fantastic as were Dana's tips on where to eat. Large kitchen and space for our group to hand out together. My only issue was that we were never given our refund back and despite numerous efforts to contact Dana to find out why, she never responded to us. Given the final price it wasn't that big of a deal, but if you don't plan on returning the deposit, don't ask for one in the first place!
Close to the nature
March 12, 2012
The place is really nice. The house is confortable and the kitchen is well oganised.The woods are all around. Each morning, we had a familly of dears, that we could see from the kitchen. We saw a wolf crossing the road not so far from the house. It is closed to the Whiteface Mountain ski resort, so it make a good place for a ski trip. The problem that we had was the communication with the owner. We had difficulties to get in touch with her, to know how to get the keys. The 2 phone numbers on the aggement rental was useless. Besides, the internet in the chalet was not working so if we had to contact her for a problem over there, it would have been difficult. We are trying to get in touch to be refund for the deposit. No news yet. But the chalet is worthed.
Less than Great Rental Experience
October 26, 2011
We stayed here for five days at the end of July. The house was very nicely decorated and in a great location. Unfortunately there were a number of problems. The upstairs shower was broken; the housekeeper left only 5 bath towels for our party of 8 people; and the phone and internet were out when we arrived. The owner was non-responsive to attempts to contact her during our stay. Then to top it off she has not returned our security deposit despite our fixing the shower at our own expense and time (there was no damage done during our stay.) Contrary to the other review, we did not find her easy to work with.
Nice place,but never got security deposite back!

I stayed at this chalet for a weekend with my husband and 2 couples, The place was very nice and clean but the neighbors did not like the fact that the owners rented it out and made it clear to us. I have now been trying for 3 months to contact the owner through email and phone to get the security deposit back. I have heard nothing back via phone nor email and have now had to resort to writing this review contacting the website directly to inform them of the issue and may need to take further action. My advise choose a differnt chalet that has a more reliable owner and there's alot out there!

Caution: Deposit not returned :(

I'm sad to be writing this as my family enjoyed staying at the chalet, but am truly disappointed. We made sure to take care of the cottage. After many emails in attempt to reach the owner we were finally told that we were getting our deposit back within 30 days as per the contract. Yet after more emails since the 30 day mark and a phone call, I have still yet to receive the deposit. Frustrating.

Our group of 10 were absolutely awed by this ski chalet. It was the most beautiful vacation home any of us had been in. The location was perfect being far enough from other people to have that peace and sanctity feeling of the Adirondaks, but close enough to things like white-face mtn activities and Lake Placid to enjoy a busy day in town! We had an absolute blast! Definitely will come back.
Great Chalet and Owners
February 28, 2011
We have an amazing time at this beautiful chalet. Dana was very easy to work with and extremely professional. The Chalet was fantastic from the wood burning fire place to the fantastic bbq. We would definetely stay here again. A hottub would a fantastic addition to the chalet :) Thanks Dana
Dishonest owner - be very careful!!!

We rented another cottage in the same area owned by the same owner. We can't get the security deposit back as the owner claims we took an iPod docking station. We just think it's her way to get $100 extra for rent... Very sad and unpleasant experience. If someone decides to rent anyway, think of a way to protect yourself, make sure somebody meets you at check in to provide you with the inventory list and somebody signs it when you leave. Hope your memories are more pleasant than ours...

The chalet is nice but it is not for 10 guest, there is only 6 chairs at the table and bed for 8. Plus, I had to wait more than a month to get my deposit back 200$...
