“I wish we could have stayed longer!”
We were 12 people and stayed comfortably in this beautiful large house. Highly recommended for an easy to reach gateway from the City, for large and small groups. Plus they are pet friendly and they made it easy to have our dog with us. They patiently responded to all our questions. The house is on top of a beautiful hill with a gorgeous view of the mountains and sunrise.The house is ~20 min from so many beautiful places!: mt van hoevenberg for xc skiing, the beautiful back country jack rabbit trail (highly recommended), whiteface for some downhill. We are very curious to see it in the Summer, when the beautiful big front lawn and the beautiful new patio will be accessible!
“Wonderful warm lodge with an amazing view in a prime location”
Ray and Laura, What an incredible weekend at an amazing place!! We had two picture perfect days to hike. The first day we took a nice hike into Avalanche Lake from Heart Lake lot. On Saturday we went up to Upper Wolf Jaw hiking past an amazing frozen John's Brook from the garden lot just a short one minute ride from the lodge. It was fantastic!! Thank you again!!
“This is one place to which I want to return again and again- beautiful.”
We have stayed at many places in the Adirondacks but this was by far the best. Spacious, clean, beautiful views, nice amenities, quiet. It also has comfortable furniture, a really nifty kitchen, and a smart lay-out. The view is oriented towards Giant which is great. I want to go again next year!
“Perfect place to get-away.”
My wife and I stayed at Giantsview the week after our wedding. We had considered far off & exotic places for our honeymoon, but are so happy we opted for close to home & relaxing. Giantsview was the perfect place to be; dramatic view, secluded, quiet, cozy wood stove, great kitchen, amazing hiking, outdoor shower is great, close enough to Lake Placid & Saranac for nice day trips. We were there late October & early November. We waited out hurricane Sandy, saw the first snow of the season and the sun came through a few days too. We tried to stay disconnected, but wifi & cell service is available if you need it. It was a great value - sliding scale for # of guests is a nice touch. The days flew by & we left feeling relaxed and recharged. It was a real priviledge to stay at such a beautiful home. We're definately going to be back!
“Perfect adirondacks getaway.”
We (group of 10 including 2 children) absolutely enjoyed our stay at Giant's View. The "view" by the way is gorgeous. The Lodge is very comfortable and had all the amenities we needed. The downstairs play area for the kids was perfect. Can't wait to return.
Omg this place is incredible! So relaxing, and warm. I would recommend this property for anyone who's looking for a relaxing vacation. Be prepared to wake up early and enjoy the outdoors! This is the perfect place for people who like to spend the day hiking or at the slopes, return to a charming rustic lodge at night, and relax around the fire! To top it of they are dog friendly. I always have to travel with my dog, and it can be very difficult to find a nice place that will allow dogs. Giant's View is a perfect property if you are looking to spend quality time with your best friend! The owners are great and very helpful. They are easy to talk to and very understanding of their guests needs. I would definitely come back and recommend this place for friends! A+
This was our third time back. Want to get away from it all? This is the place!
“Excellent Location, Stay, and Comfort!”
My wife and I stayed at the Giant's View Lodge twice in three years, and it is consistently wonderful. There is so much room even for two families, and it was just my wife and I. Firstly, the house is very clean. There are some problems with flies during the warmer time of the year (though our first stay in March must have been cold enough to keep them away, because we didn't see/hear them). Secondly, the kitchen is perfect for big meals - git the grocery in Lake Placid and do all of your cooking here! Thirdly, the location is scenic, tucked away in the wilderness, and yet easy to get to (four-wheel drive is recommended during the winter). Ray and Laura are very prompt with their replies and thorough on what they expect from their guests - there should be no misinterpretation on your deposit, reservation dates, or rules of your stay. Finally, the house has everything you could ask for in a getaway - laundry, wood stove, high ceilings, lots of room, comfy beds, the kitchen, charcoal grill, playroom for the kids, gorgeous view of the mountains, and excellent heating system - didn't have to touch the thermostat once until it was time to leave. In all, a wonderful stay and we look forward to returning in the near future.
“The House in the Mountains”
Have to call it: "The House in the Mountains" as that is what our children invariably call it. They love it! Our friends who join us annually love it too. Of course we love the location - have been going to Keene Valley for over 20 years now, and Giant's View for 3 years. Giant's View takes the cake for our best experiences while visiting that quiet little neighbor of Lake Placid. Ray and Laura are excellent and make the reservation process very easy. Thanks again!
We get in the car excited out of our minds. We're spending the weekend at Giant's View! Takes us about 4 hours for us to get there,I never even want to stop. This is how we kick off our Holiday season every year. We pull in the driveway and drive up to the cabin (A lovely 3000 plus sq ft log cabin nestled into the side of Little Porter Mt.). I dont stop moving till everything is in the house( Wife, Kids,food ,wine) and wood bin is loaded( beautiful wood stove centerpiece of livingroom). Only then will I sit down in my favorite chair in the house(not sure of the name but it sits against the window facing the loft) and take in the beauty of the cabin. My entire family loves the cabin. We have been staying in The Nardelli's Giant View for about 5 years now. Every stay better than the last. We've brought Parents, Friends and all are amazed at the beauty of the cabin and its surroundings. Its close to Lake Placid and Saranac so there's plenty to do. Whiteface,The North Pole,Mt.Van Hoevenburg Sports Complex,Olympic Ski Jumps, High Falls Gorge are all great places to visit (Winter or Summer). The Nardelli's have a jewel in the adirondacks.
