“lovely spacious house in beautiful Lake Placid”
Reviewed January 8, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

My family and friends stayed in the Ninja Log Home for Christmas and it was perfect. The process of renting the house was really great as the owner, Sam, is super friendly and helpful. He responds immediatly to any additional questions and is very attentive to you and your needs. The house is wonderful and very spacious, so fitting in two families of four each was easy. It is located a short drive from Lake Placid, and in the summer time you can easily go by bike to the town. We would definitely consider coming back to Lake Placid and the Ninja Log House.

“Not Bad”
Reviewed December 28, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

As others have said, what you see is what you get.

A couple of issues for us:

We arrived late (GPS and cell service very spotty in the area) but managed to get inside the house before midnight. Well, it turns out the house wasn't cleaned after the previous guests left. However, a quick call to the Sam and he had it rectified within the hour.

A frequent reboot of the cable modem was required to get internet. I think they need to invest in a newer one. It was pretty fast when it was working.

Upstairs bedrooms are very uncomfortable. Like the other reviewer said, it's better suited for children.

Upstairs common area couch fabric was covered in dog hair. Sam said it will be addressed.

It also got very hot inside. I wish he had more capable fans inside the house.
Main street area is within walking distance if you're feeling adventurous. It gets dark at night and it's quite hilly.

Washer/ dryer in the basement was a plus. Plenty of parking was a plus. No issues with getting our refund back. Sam also graciously refunded the cleaning fee because of the miscommunication with the cleaning people.

Management Response

Ryan,
Thanks for your review. I am glad you are satisfied with the timely response to address the unfortunate cleaning scheduling mishap, and that you are pleased with a cleaning fee refund.
Your feedback on a few missing items was taken seriously, and as I have communicated to you back in September, we have already replaced mattresses in the upper bedrooms. The WiFi intermittent issues were related to problems with local Internet provider?s service. The problem had been rectified that same weekend.
We look forward to another opportunity to host you at our property, and once again, thank you for your comments.
Best Regards,
Sam

“Great place for trip with a few issues”
Reviewed January 20, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Close to Lake Placid, less than 5 mins from downtown. Lower level is great and included all things needed for kitchen. Was clean and a great price for the number of bedrooms.

The only issue we had was upstairs the 2 bedrooms had uncomfortable mattresses and more suited to children. Had a problem with WIFI and cable as well and wasn't working.

The pictures are accurate.

“Great location with modern furnishings, great for a group.”

I would actually give this a 4.5 if I could. I spent 4 nights here with my family of 4 and another family of 5. There is plenty of space. The sitting area is nice leather furniture and there is a dining area that seats 8 with another 2 at the breakfast bar. The kitchen is modern with nice appliances. It was lacking some basics like pot holders and measuring cups, but I let Sam know when we returned home, so I am sure he will take care of that. When we first arrived we had an issue with the shower curtain and did not have enough wash cloths for all of us. I made a call to Sam before we headed out to town and when we got back two hours later a new shower curtain was hung and there were new wash cloths on the counter. The location is perfect! Very close to town and convenient to the Olympic venues. We also enjoyed the convenience store within walking distance for milk and other groceries.
