I would like to thank you for your review for me it’s all positive because theres always room for improvement when you are new to the hospitality business. When you booked the room in August 22nd I was only renting out the living room as a studio the listing was accurate and not misleading. Upon your arrival I mentioned that I was a musician / Artist and that the bedroom was not offered because it was used to store my instruments and equipment. You are leaving a review in February 2016 for a room you booked in August 2015. As of January 1, 2016 I have expanded the booking space and updated the pictures accordingly to reflect the seperate bedroom that has been approved by Tripadvisor and Flipkey. As mentioned I’m very new to this and did everything in power to make sure that you and your daughter was comfortable. Yes you are correct there was only a kettle for tea and a frying pan for omelettes in the morning provided. During all of our correspondence back and forth you never mentioned doing any cooking at all your main concern was the bedding and having the proper duvet and covers. I did not list a microwave as one of the amenities because I don’t own one due to its high radiation and being link to cancer it’s a personal preference. However, a full cutlery was offered and cabinets to store cereals and canned goods. I’m happy you found the furniture comfortable and was able to get much needed rest. In terms of the heating and hot water. The heater was on a timer and wasn’t offered around the clock due to the record breaking temperatures we had in New York City during the Christmas Holiday reaching 72 degrees https://weather.com/forecast/national/news/christmas-week-forecast-warm-east . Unfortunately I don’t own a five star hotel, I’m just an Artist who's open their home to travelers who’s looking for an affordable safe place to stay that's minutes away from midtown. Once again it was truly a pleasure meeting you both and wishing you all the best in the this new year.
Had the pleasure of spending a long weekend in this newly refurbished guest house situated between and apple and cherry grove close to lake Ontario. The house is nicely appointed with new amenities in… More
Thanks for your kind words. We loved hosting you, and finding out we knew some of your family! Small world. You were a great Cottager. We hope to see you again.

Matthew, his wife and kids were the absolute perfect guest. They arrived and immediately they felt like family. It was a pleasure swapping stories of New York and Chicago. Matthew had indicated that he was a runner and was going to run in a particular park, however, we suggested a historical park with grand entrances and rolling hills, a runners delight! Several occasions, we would cross each other during our morning run.
Matthew and his family took Brooklyn by a storm, they went out and experienced many of the wonderful newly established restaurants that we, as Brooklynites, had not experienced.
Matthew and family was such a pleasure to have in our home and we had a opportunity to make friends. They are welcomed back at any time.

Thanks for your review. I am responding to address the issues you mentioned. Regarding the smell that happened during your stay. This issues comes from Chair 6's restaurant that is located in the next door lot. We do not have any control over what our neighbors do however, we are in contact with the Village of Lake Placid and the Town and they are working with the restaurant to remedy the situation. I'm sorry you had trouble with the lock. The directions/faq's clearly point out that there are 2 combinations. It's important to take the time to read them throughly. On personal garbage. We are a "do-it-yourself" property and suggest that you take your garbage with you. The town dump is 2 minutes away. In cases where the dump is closed you may leave it. Thank you for staying with us and glad you had a good time.
