Staying at John's place is not just having a place to sleep. He is such a nice dude to spend time with and share awesome moments with. He makes delicious breakfast too, you should'nt miss that. We had 2 wonderful days at his lovely home. When ever we get the chance to come back, we'll stay at John's place for sure. Thank you so much John! You are just awesome!
John was a fantastic host and was waiting on the porch to greet us when we arrived. The house is spacious and both the bathroom and bedroom were immaculate. There are 2 cats on the ground floor with great personalities. There's not too much to do immediately in Au Sable Forks, though this location offers good access to nearby sights like Whiteface Mountain and Lake Placid.
Third stay at John's who has always treated me like a long-time buddy. The house is cool and quiet, and so is the village. I enjoy long bicycle rides up the mountains in a breath-taking sceneries and amazing landscapes around Lake Placid.
John would kindly feed me with wholesome and sport-oriented delicious meals when I am too exhausted to eat after a 7-hour ride on the Ironman circuit...
We can have the conversations and privacy if need be in such a big roomy house. I love the village, the river and the people, not mentionning the delicious pizzas at the Mad River Pizza restaurant. Longing for my 4th stay, sooner than later...
The listing was exactly as expected, and John is a wonderful host
When he found out where I lived, he asked me to bring a local gourmet food item in my cooler..I was so happy that he enjoyed it
He showed me around town, we ate with John's friend, and also with the fellow traveller using the other part of the house..Great local experience
Too bad I couldn't stay longer to enjoy the lovely area
John was a gracious, friendly host. My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our stay and particularly John's amazing breakfasts. Special shout-out to his secret recipe orange julius drink. His place is a beautiful old house right on the main street in town, and is a really convenient walk to the town restaurant and bar and a short drive to some of the best hikes in the area. Highly recommend!

Melissa, you are so pretty...post your photo
Felt right at home at John's :) and made good friends with him in just a few hours!! Fun music scene and a wonderful breakfast (buckwheat pecan pumpkin pancakes.. yum) . Most definitely coming back. The place is well located near some great hikes and striking views, and you get to experience the lively north country scene :)
Response from John:
I now know what the prefect BnB weekend might look like....Claudia and Bill, Sophie and Lars.....then add Uma Thurman for me!!!
This was an amazing bed and breakfast especially if you like the history of older homes. John, the host was amazing. He took good care of us giving us recommendations on where to eat and what to do. The b & b was located in a nice little town just about 20 minutes from Lake Placid. The breakfast we had both mornings was amazing, a gourmet breakfast at its best!
A great stay at Johns place in Au Sable Forks. I can highly reccomend staying here. John is very hospitable and the little town is too.
John was a great host. We were only there for 1 night but the time we were there we felt we were at home. The place was clean and accommodating. The neighborhood was nice and quiet, and it is close to Lake Placid and other sights. Overall, we had a good time and John made some great breakfast the next morning.
We had an excellent visit at John's. The room was great and the breakfasts were delicious, especially John's take on an orange julius! Excellent stories and tips about the area were an added bonus.
What an awesome place to stay, I have been several times. Gorgeous house, a completely restored Victorian. The area is gorgeous and so much to do.
You have to see the fall colors they are breathtaking. I have know the owner for 25+ years could not stay with a nicer guy or have a better B and B experience.
