We had a fantastic time at your cottage. It was big enough for 3 small families and had everything we needed. The décor was great for a country ski house. we enjoyed the fireplace and sat around the big kitchen table to eat and play games. Andrea's recommendation for dinner was great as well. we loved the short walk to Lisa G's and had a great meal at one table. We plan to come back next year.
Thank you for being a great host.
-- Steve & Amy

We had a wonderful time. Walked/shopped Main St. of Lake Placid. Spent time at the beach at Mirror Lake. Canoed in the Chubb River. Canoed & Kayaked in Lower Saranac Lake. We had lunch on Hatchett Island, our granddaughters loved it! Also hiked a couple mountains. The view from teh summit of Mt. Jo was spectacular. Sun & clouds peeking over Algonquin in the distance. The Adirondacks are the best! Thank you for hosting a fantastic time with family
-- Loved it here!

Had a great father son weekend. Fished Lake Flower,Kiwassa Lake. Canoed Upper St. Regis Lake. St. Regis mountain to Fire Tower. Had a spectacular time!
-- David Klein

Had a great stay here. Enjoyed going out and doing something during the day and then coming back here and hanging out at night and in the evening. Had great breakfasts of broiled bagels, and enjoyed sitting on the deck in the morning to read and enjoy the mountain views. Much thanks for allowing us to stay here!
-- The Hallorans

This was a perfect vacation for a wedding rehersal in Saranac Lake, and a wedding at Mt. Pisgah. We enjoyed the proximity to town. The beautiful mountains, the house -clean, roomy and comfortable. Thank you for your home!

Thank you so much for a beautiful place to stay in Lake Placid! We loved walking to dinner at Lisa G's, watching the sunset from the porch, and taking the kids to the Olympic Ice Rink, museums, hiking and to the Adirondack Wildlife Refuge-what a great place to see wolves, foxes, owls,etc. We had a great time!
-- The Myers Family

Thank you for the accomodations! We enjoyed our stay in Lake Placid

We had a very nice visit. I loved the house, I was surprised that the bathrooms counter was made out of bark. We had a very nice view of the Adirondack Mountains. We did boating at Lake Placid, we also went hiking. My friend Annie and her family were with us too. We went on a very nice gondola ride. Me and Annie kept on saying 5,4,3,2,1 were gonna die. And we finally went on a boat ride and we celebrated with BBQ, Fireworks and that was the end of our awesome vacation.
-- Annie

Love, Love, Love the long kitchen table. Was perfect for our group of friends to chat, eat and play games together. What an amazing weather weekend we had in these parts. Gondola to the top of Whiteface for a champagne toast fo the Tobbagan ride down onto the lake! Just a beautiful day! Come home to a tasty pasta, bread and wine dinner filled with love, laughter and remembering our day and making new memories at Sentinel View. Thank you for the late checkout! You're the best!
-- Bean, Patty, Chris, Aunt Tash, Mike, Tricia, Nancy, Betty

Eight very close girlfriends came to spend the weekend for Lyn's 50th birthday! We had a fabulous celebration. The house was comfy and perfect for our crowd! Saturday we went over to Saranac Lake for Winter Carnival parade and Ice Castle.
Thank you for sharing your house! We will be back to Lake Placid!
-- Girls Weekend!

Once again, a lovely stay at the house! We came up for Empire State Games-our 10 year old daughter, Lilly competed in figure skating and did very well. We love the view of Whiteface and the lovely decor throughout the house-we will be back soon! Thank you for everything Hollisters!
-- The Mills Family

We're back!!
Wel, just as we predicted last year at this time, Sentinel View is becoming our "go to" place when we're here in beautiful Lake Placid- our "home away from home" Our 14 year old son was once again competing in the Jack Shea (long track speed skating) Sprints & it was lovely to be able to pop back to the house for lunch or cozy up by the fire after dinner, once our days at the oval were complete. We even had down time to poke around up town at the shops! Thanks again Hollisters for sharing your comfy cottage with us. Once again looking forward to next time.
-- Neil Monkman

We especially loved the big kitchen looking out at the High Peaks. It is quiet, isolated but close to town. An easy walk to town, lot's of bird friends, beautiful sunsets, and homeade dinner after long hikes, loved it!! So much space in the house! Very homey, and can't go wrone with a kitchen table that long. Great atmosphere, very xozy and homey
-- Meissner family & friends

My first night here, I cooked a steak on the grill, had a bottle of wine and enjoyed a fire outside. We roe our motorcycle throughout the Adirondacks, took a breewery tour in Utica, and caught up with an old friend. The cabin was clean, ware, and well stocked. Coffee on the outside deck in the mornings to watch the sun come up over the mountains was beautiful.
-- Pat Patterson

I'm the family hero after I booked Sentinel View for my 2 brothers and wives. it was close to downtown, yet quiet and peaceful. lots of room to spread out, comfy beds, cable TV/wireless, necessary essentials. And better priced than most comparable properties in LP. Highly recommended.
-- William

3rd year staying here...and as usual, everything was great! Plenty of room, plenty of amenities, and easy trek into town. As usual, will stay here again next year.
Andrea's pretty awesome to!
-- ADK Men's Club - Niagara Chapter

The house was beautiful! We had our whole family there, and the accommodations were perfect. Great location!
-- Diane Borowiec

We greatly enjoyed our stay at Sentinel View--clean, nicely furnished, well-maintained home. We had coffee on the deck in the morning, followed by cocktails in the evening. Great table able to seat many easily. Kitchen had everything needed for making meals, although our visit included a wedding so we did little cooking of our own. Walking into Lake Placid took only about 15 minutes--such a great town! We would gladly stay again!
Only one suggestion--bring bar soap or shower gel!
-- Anne Weed

This was the perfect place for my friends and I. It was in a convenient location, the right price, beautiful view and it felt spacious even though we had a large group! We loved that we could all sit at the kitchen table and eat together and that there were two floors, so if some people were still sleeping we could gather in another location. I would definitely recommend this place to others. If I end up in Lake Placid again, I won't hesitate to stay here again.
-- Jillian Corley

We loved eating and cooking and playing games in the spacious upper kitchen! Everyone had a comfortable place to sleep. We walked to Mirror Lake & shops every day and drove easily to our high peaks and shorter hikes. It was a perfect location and lovely home!We could have used more washrags; there were only four.
-- Margaret Meissner

Our training camp group enjoyed our stay very much. The house is spacious and having use of two kitchens was perfect for our group of athletes. There was lots of space to store equipment and training clothes on the balcony and entrance deck. A great place to unwind after a day outside. We would definitely stay here again.
-- Corina Zechel

Awesome location, great view, godd parking and lots of room to sleep. Cabin was close to town , but tucked away enough from the rd or neighbors. sweet fire pit and secluded back yard. would book this place again for sure! Everyone had a great time.
-- Scotty and the boys!

Plenty of room, clean, quiet,comfortable bed, fully stocked kitchen, front and rear porch, fire pit. A fair view to the river across the street, and beautiful sunrise over the mountains every morning with the American flag to greet us! Walking distance to town. We'll be back!
-- Pat Patterson

Great place to stay - view and location are great -
-- Cheryl jory

Thanks for sharing your place with us for the holidays Andrea.
What a great place and lovely spot.
All went well - thanks for all the information you provided
(except I must report that one of your Helmer Fuel & Trucking potholders didn't survive our visit/holiday meal - sorry about that)
Can't thank you enough for the Christmas tree - what a lovely tree and so wonderful to have it there. Really made the holiday special for us. What a terrific surprise when we walked in and saw it. Really was such a treat to have and made the holiday even more festive. We would love to make it back someday - hope so! Thanks again!

Karen Madison PS Happy New Year too!
-- Karen Madison

The house is a great location and very clean and comfortable! We enjoy staying with easy access to all Lake Placid's features!
-- Jenny M

Wonderful and very well kept cottage in the perfect location. Fit our group of seven adults with ease and plenty of room. Dinner, groceries, shopping, Olympic history was all less than eleven minutes away, most of which less than five. Looking forward to return!
-- Ryan P

The home was comfy and cozy along with a great location and view. Thanks
-- Cheryl Jory

Another great stay at Sentinel View. The house is so convenient yet feels so secluded. We hope to be back again next year!
-- Lisa Phelps

The sentinel view is a great vacation rental. My family and I loved the accomodations. Clean, spacious and well stocked with everything you can think of. We would definitely rent again!
-- Annette Scala

The Sentinel View home provided us with a wonderful vacation! It is so conveniently located to Lake Placid and White Face Mountain, its the perfect spot during a winter vacation. It was very clean and when we had a question, the owner was very prompt to respond.
-- Samantha M.

Review #10774500 “Excellent Stay!”
Great location! Just a a 10-15 minute walk from main street but secluded enough for your own privacy. Rented the entire house for a 5 day vacation. Home was clean and well taken care of. Only a 15 minute drive to White Face as well. Can't beat it!
-- Matt Kasparian

This was our second year Staying here with two other lacrosse families. We rented the whole house which was great for additional space as well as 2 kitchens and 2 baths. Great location for walking in to town, hanging out on the back deck, or paddling around on the river which is right next to the house. Great adirondack appeal. We plan on renting it again for next year as well!
-- Lacrosse Families

We rented the whole house for the Ironman event, my son who did the Ironman stayed downstairs. He had his own space perfect at this time. The 4 of us stayed upstairs,plenty of room. The house was
great, perfect location to town. We felt very much at home. When we decide to visit
Lake Placid again I would stay here again. I
would recommend this house to anyone visiting Lake Placid. Thanks Again
-- Maria Ricca

Selecting a rental property from the Internet can often be a challenge. However, our latest accommodations were a welcome surprise upon arrival. It was exactly what my friends and I had anticipated and more. The property was extremely well maintained and its location was perfect for our purposes. We were able to experience the entire village on foot. I would definitely use this property again when traveling to the Lake Placid area, regardless of the season.
-- Steve

Since 2009 Sentinel View has been our February break 'home' and this year was as awesome as ever. The Olympics and Lake Placid are a perfect combination. Thank you again for a memorable visit. Hoping to make it back from some Spring skiing in March.
-- The Sibson\'s

Had a great stay in mid January at Sentinel View. We came over from Sugarloaf with out mogul team for the mogul and aerial World Cup events. The house worked out great for our group of 7 being close to town, only 9 miles form the mountain and close to the events. Everything worked well and the bed in the master bedroom was one of the most comfortable we have slept on while traveling. Thanks for the use of your house, we'll be sure to pass this on to others that are visiting Lake Placid.
-- Scott Carolyn and the CVA mogul team

We treated your home like we would our own and were very comfortable there. We fit a lot into our 3,skiing,a skating show,bobsledding and Skelton runs and visiting the ski jumps etc...but would come back again. If we do we would gladly stay at your home again..great location too.

Oh and happy new year-stay warm as it sounds like it is gonna be a bit chilly this week.

Thanks again

We had the pleasure of staying at Sentinel View while attending a lacrosse tournament. We rented the whole house as we were with 2 other families. The house had plenty of room. It had an adirondack feel with most of the amenities of home. We were close enough to town that both kids and adults were able to walk with no problems. We also brought up kayaks that we used in the river behind the house. Look forward to renting it again next summer when we come back
-- The Guest, Buse, and Stoler Families

My friends and I visit Placid every year for the lacrosse tournament. We love playing together like the old times and we enjoyed staying at the house just as much! The rooms were perfect and location couldn't have been better. The house was just what we needed for a wonderful stay and we recommend it to anyone of any age looking for a fantastic stay in Lake Placid!
-- Meaghan Flanagan

We had a very pleasant stay . It was so great to be able to have the whole family under one roof. The location of the house is great and so are the views.
-- The Tyrrell Family

Perfect rental in all regards! Some friends and I rented the upstairs unit for the Marathon / Half Marathon and it was perfect. Excellent location with a short walk to the Oval, Main Street and Mirror Lake. Even closer to Lisa G's. Comfortable and roomy enough for athletes with gear making this is an excellent option for the IronMan, Marathon or any training weekend and we enjoyed grilling out on the deck after the race. Looking forward to staying there on a future trip!
-- Clay Battin

The view from the breakfast table is awesome! Great location to all Lake Placid has to offer. You can walk to restaurants and even the Olympic training Center is in walking distance ( we had our daughter staying there and it was easy to get there and back)! Skiing was great, my kids were thrilled with all the snow and the sledding hill. We will definitely come back!
-- The Basaj Family

The bed is so comfy! We enjoyed the privacy, view, location, and the comfortable home where we could spread out. So much better than a motel room! It is a central location for hiking trailheads.
-- Mary and Rich Hammel

We just hiked Mt. Marcy. Coming back to your comfortable house was perfect. What a great place to call a home away from home.
-- Karl Lundberg

We had a great time at your place and were pleasantly surprised to find a crib for your 5 week old! The location is very convenient and we could easily walk to downtown Lake Placid.
-- Sohini & Aroop

Hi Andrea,
I just wanted to say thank you for letting us use your cottage for the week. We had a wonderful time, my wife enjoyed her days relaxing at home - she is not a downhill skier, while my friends and I enjoyed the slopes.

We are already making plans for next year and are hoping to find your cottage available for a week or so sometimes in february of 2013.
-- Corina & Harold, Sonia & Mihail

We really enjoyed our weekend skiing and found Sentinel View to be an excellent place to stay. There were even fireworks on Saturday evening that we could watch from the window. It was beautiful!!
-- Mac & Lynn Green

We rented the whole house this past New Years weekend. (12/28 - 1/1/12). One couple and three boys stayed upstairs while my husband and I stayed downstairs. The accomodations were great! The boys were able to walk to town at night. Wish the ski conditions were better....overall a great place to stay. We are thinking of renting again in the summer season. Really loved this house.
-- Charlie and Debbie G

What a great place! Everything was perfect! We will come back for sure! Thanks for everything!
-- Genevieve and friend - Montreal

Thank you very much for the use of the cabin! Great location close to Lake Placid and Whiteface Mountain. We had 2 great days of snowboarding. The weather was mild and there was plenty of snow. There was also a marriage proposal on Whiteface! We will be sure to return to celebrate an anniversary.
-- Melissa, Richard, Amy & Jason-Toronto, ON

We had a great time! The house was completely gorgeous. I liked the swing too. We went ice skating on Mirror Lake on Tuesday. On Wednesday we went skiing at Whiteface. Both were so very fun! My brother and I played hide and seek. Great place for hiding. We loved it and we'll be back. You can see the outline of the mountains in the distance.
-- Denis, Carol Anne, Ben Elizabeth

Sentinel View is definetly a keeper. It was a warm, beautiful place to stay. Lake Placid is an awesome town. We had pickup hockey games on Mirror Lake, went skiing at an Olympic mountain, and watched "Miracle" A light snow fell the whole time. Food is a plus. I recommend Mr. Mikes.
-- Ben

Thank you so much! This place is perfect for a weekend getaway.
-- Andrew Eaton & Amy Kuzio

Our Memorial Day weekend will remain in our memory. Unfortunately such food times do not last long.

Had a wonderful stay, the accommodations were perfect. 6 Flags made a wonderful day trip, ski jump and gondola ride are well worth the passport. Beautiful lakes and rivers. Thanks very much for the memories.
-- The Underhills-Ottawa, CA

We really enjoyed our stay here in Lake Placid. The cottage is great and the location was perfect for viewing the Ironman event.

Great House! Terrific location. Nice and quiet, allowing our daughter the peace and quiet she needed to rest up and be ready to compete for, and win a gold medal at the 2009 Lake Placid Ice Dancing Championships!

We had a wonderful stay. The house was a most comfortable base for our adventures into the wilds of the Adirondack Region. It was so nice to have such a comfy and cozy home to return to after a day hiking and exploring.

Thanks so much Andrea for sharing your wonderful house on the Chubb River.

-- Nick, Allen and Friends

Thank you so much for letting us stay in your wonderful house at such a short notice. An extremely comfortable home. It is located ideally, being close to Main Street and a pleasant drive to Whiteface Mountain. The house is warm and cozy and the kitchen is very well equipped & easy to use. We all had a great time. My parents who came here from India had an extremely enjoyable weekend at Lake Placid, mainly because of the comfortable stay at your house. I will be definitely recommending it to my friends.
-- Uma Seetharam

We had a great time here at Lake Placid, we couldn't have enjoyed it as much if it weren't for this lovely cozy house. Thank you very much for letting us stay. It was definitely worth the 12 hours of travel here. We'd love to come again.
-- The Kambara Family

The location of this house is excellent! We were able to go into town with a very short drive. Also we love the birch bark accessories.
-- Owen, Donna, Colin, Elise and Naomi

We enjoyed your house. It is very comfortable & cozy. The house is stocked with everything we needed. What a blessing! Thank you.
-- The Gratton's

Hi Andrea; Just arrived home this afternoon, what a lovely place you have. We had a wonderful time as my daughter wrote in your guest book. Life couldnt be more perfect.enjoying Six Flags, Whiteface Mtn, the ski jumping complex (2 of our girls used to speed skate so seeing where the Olympians competed was very exciting for them) and walking into The Gap where almost everything in the store is 50% off(haha)Your place was perfect distance from the main drag and yet felt somewhat secluded. Thank you again.
-- The Underhills

What a great house! We were very comfortable here, both inside and out. The view of Sentinel range is marvelous! We love the location of the house, the sound of the river below and the train whistles! It's like our home away from home. We really like the location here, it's just a short bike ride to the beach and the town. We went to the beach at least four times and we went shopping a lot. Thanks again we love the Cottage!
-- Amiee, Vince, Maggie & Ashlyn

Thank you for providing us with a cozy, warm place to stay. The view from the house is great and the location was convenient to downtown Lake Placid and Whiteface Mtn. We enjoyed having a fire each night and being able to cook breakfast each morning. Thanks for everything!
