The Alpine Homestead sits in the quaint little Irish village of Olmstedville, in the town of Minerva, New York. Our location in the Adirondack Park is ideal for Fall and Winter sports and activities as well as Spring and Summer outdoor fun. Hiking, rafting, skiing, boating, and fishing can all happen just minutes from our back door. Looking for relaxation and peacefulness, you will find it with us. Our 1850's home was renovated by us in 2006. Antique furnishings are throughout our home, yet it is warm and welcoming and very relaxing. Three of our guest rooms have private baths for your convenience. The other two rooms share a bath. The whole house rental can accommodate 13 people.

We enjoyed our stay at this secluded bed and breakfast before we picked our son up from Deerfoot Camp. Very peaceful after our long drive. We were glad to be able to walk to the wonderful restaurant next door, The Owl at Twilight. The hosts are a lovely couple, and the baked oatmeal was absolutely delicious!

Thank you! We are so glad you stayed with us when coming to the area to pick up your son. Our baked oatmeal is a favorite of many! We hope our paths cross again.

The Alpine Homestead is a lovely departure from standard B&B life - it is a rambling home, beautifully restored, but cozy and welcoming without being overbearing. It's a very difficult thing to balance, and Barry and Peg pull it off beautifully. The breakfast was great (baked oatmeal), the rooms well appointed and clean, and the bathrooms have great linens (the bathrobes are divine!), piping hot water with good water pressure. It's all a great experience, and we had a really great time.

This B & B is so lovely, comfortable, warm, welcoming and more. The breakfasts were a slice of heaven. The porch (and hummingbirds) were so enticing, fun and relaxing. But the best part of our 3 nights there was the hosts, Peggy and Barry. They made us feel like family, yet used all their best china and bedding on us:-)....strangers in their lovely home. This place is for sale so the next owners have huge shoes to fill.

In a word - wow! I've stayed at many B&B's over the years, and this one is really special. The house is immaculate, beautifully decorated, with a wonderful sense of history (being from 1850), and overall so lovely. Even so, it is the owners that really add that special touch - they feel like family from the moment you walk in the door. So warm and friendly - simply delightful. We had great conversations with Peggy and Barry over the weekend. The breakfasts were amazing, and served on such gorgeous heirloom china - made us feel very pampered. Loved the front porch and sitting out there in the morning with coffee delivered to me from Barry. Really hope the next owners have the same love for the home that Barry and Peg do! Would highly recommend this place!
