Please remove your shoes at the door- your accommodation will stay much cleaner without the outdoors coming in. It is helpful to bring a pair of sandals or slippers to wear inside. This helps keep our “Adirondack” nature (pine needles, leaves, rain, snow & that tough mountain mud) out of your living space.

If you find that the Wifi is not working on a device, please refresh your device first, prior to reporting the difficulty. This is often the trick.
