Great stay, in July 2013 !!
Hiked Mt Marcy, went to John Brown Farm, some park trails.
The cabin is great, Liked the landscapes painted very much !!
Owners are very nice !!
Bons, our k9 kid, enjoyed it very much also !!
Stayed at the Old Wheel for a week in August 2015. Cabin itself is great. Very large, very clean. It has a large back deck and also a screened in porch in the front. I loved the location at the corner of 73 and Adirondack Loj Rd. Its only a few minutes drive to Lake Placid proper but far enough away to be out of the hustle and bustle of town. We hiked up Cascade and Giant and they were both a short drive from the cabin. The view from the back of the cabin was amazing. I would give this cabin 5 stars but its right on 73 so its not exactly the quietest location. I wouldnt call it noisy but occasionally the trucks coming down the hill would use the Jake brake which was annoying and people definitely do NOT obey the speed limit on the way down the hill. That being said I highly recommend this cabin for families, groups of friends etc.
We liked the history of this cabin and the interior set-up. It was rustic and old fashioned- a unique Adirondack experience.
My 3 friends from high school and I all turned 40 this year and decided to take a trip together. We picked this lovely, rustic cabin since it had plenty of space and beds for the 4 of us. We were thrilled when we arrived! It was so cute inside!! All the little nick-nacks around the rooms were a nice touch! There was everything we could have ever needed, and then some! Plenty of dishes, pots & pans, blankets, pillows, you name it. This place had it. We would definitely stay here again!

I stayed with my friend and her 2 kids. We loved it! The cabin was very clean and comfortable. We are going back next summer.
