I booked a couples cabin for a long weekend away for my fiance's birthday. We stayed in Colden for three nights and had a wonderful time! From the moment we pulled in, I knew I picked the right place. We were greeted by Johanna and she gave us a tour of the grounds (firepit, grill, picnic tables, picturesque views, and even a teepee!) and led us to the cabin. The cabin was so cute and charming on the outside and inside. It reminded me of a tiny house!
The cabin was complete with everything we'd need: bed linens, towels, dishes, cups, silverware, cookware, coffee maker, and fridge. There was a boil water advisory, so we couldn't drink the tap water. However, Johanna provided us with plenty of bottled water. The cabin was very clean and met all of our needs!
The location is perfect, it's only a ten minute drive into Lake Placid Village and it's a stone's throw away from many trailheads (including Cascade).
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the cabin and will return!
