The team was very friendly and knowledgeable
We usually stay in hotels and this was our first stay in a rental property. Our expectations were exceeded. We were 6 adults and 2 kids. The property is equipped with all the appliances and all the kitchen stuff - plates , glasses, etc. you may need.. it was a very very pleasant experience.

Diana was very helpful in supplying activity recommendations. She and her team were also very responsive and willing to help with any of our concerns, even over the holiday weekend. I would definitely come back here
My group of 4 loved our stay at the Athletic Balsams. The place was beautiful and very tastefully decorated. It was clean, cozy and still very spacious. We were 2 couples, so we only slept in the upstairs 2 bedrooms. I didnt even realize there was a whole basement, where we easily couldve slept another couple and/or kids on the pullout couch and twin bunkbeds. The unit is connected to others, but we only heard them when they were out shoveling snow. It is about 6 minutes south of town (Main Street) and 20 minutes southeast of Whiteface Mountain. Its actually right by the Olympic Ski Jumping Complex - which is crazy to see!
