We are somewhat retired and are generally busy at some task. We would certainly enjoy chatting with you, sharing a glass of wine and cheese on the deck and sharing with you all of the wonderful recreation and educational opportunities our area offers. We do speak English, French and Spanish.

Winter Fun in the Champlain Valley and Beyond
Don't let the cold temperatures stop you from getting outdoors and enjoying the Adirondacks. The Champlain Valley area is still relatively snow and ice free except at higher elevations. Be prepared for things to change however. A pair on mini-spike crampons can really be an asset when hiking along some icy/snowy terrain - as well as good hiking boots, walking sticks, snow shoes or X-country skis dependent upon terrain and weather conditions. Dress in layers with water resistant, breathable clothing. Avoid cotton jeans, etc.
There are many trails for winter enjoyment. We have trail maps for your convenience.
During the winter months Ausable Chasm is open but advance reservations are needed for day or night tours. They also offer some winter adventure packages that include ice climbing and rappelling for the brave. Call for information.
Lake Placid has many events during the winter months ... such as the Empire State Games in Feb., Ice Hockey championships as well as Nordic Ski Racing events. Please check their as well as Whiteface Mtn website for a complete listing. Of course there is world-class skiing and boarding at Whiteface and the snow is great this year.
The Saranac Lake Winter Carnival begins on Feb 3 - 9 days of ice fun in a picturesque town in the mountains. The locals have already begun the construction of the Ice Palace. The Parade - a not-to-be-missed unique event truly underscores the character of this town - dubbed America's Greatest Small City.
We are just a short ferry ride away from Burlington, Vt. - a hip town with a lot happening year-round. Feb. alone is the time for the Winter Lights, the Penguin Plunge, the Winter Bash, the Ice Bar and more. Check out ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center.
Montreal ... Less than an easy two-hour drive ... don't forget your passports or Visa if needed. I'll list just a few winter fun ideas: Ski or sled Mont Royal; Old Montreal Food Tour; Old Montreal Ice Fishing Village; Igloofest (electronic music!); Montreal en Lumiere; Skating - rinks all over the city; Bota Bota Spa.
Here are some things to do/see locally. We will have brochures for you :
Whiteface Mtn; Ausable Chasm; permit to the local beach and boat ramp; numerous NYS hiking trails; ferries to Vermont; wildlife refuge; Ausable River trout fishing; Lake Placid; Plattsburgh Int'l Airport; Canoe and kayak rentals; restaurants - casual or fine dining; numerous historical sites and villages; 1 1/2 hrs to Montreal
We are dog lovers. If your dog is friendly, behaved and house friendly we welcome your fur friend. We have a young Dutch shepherd who is always looking for a playmate.
We generally are off to bed early and rise early. You would have your own key to the side door. Keep your own hours. All should be fine unless you like loud music or TV late at night.
We have room for parking.
Mich and I are married and somewhat retired. We enjoy living in our Adirondack home and its surroundings.
