The Alpine Homestead

Room & Suite (1)


The Alpine Homestead sits in the quaint little Irish village of Olmstedville, in the town of Minerva, New York. Our location in the Adirondack Park is ideal for Fall and Winter sports and activities as well as Spring and Summer outdoor fun. Hiking, rafting, skiing, boating, and fishing can all happen just minutes from our back door. Looking for relaxation and peacefulness, you will find it with us. Our 1850's home was renovated by us in 2006. Antique furnishings are throughout our home, yet it is warm and welcoming and very relaxing. Three of our guest rooms have private baths for your convenience. The other two rooms share a bath. The whole house rental can accommodate 13 people.

The Alpine Homestead is a lovely departure from standard B&B life - it is a rambling home, beautifully restored, but cozy and welcoming without being overbearing. It's a very difficult thing to balance, and Barry and Peg pull it off beautifully. The breakfast was great (baked

This B & B is so lovely, comfortable, warm, welcoming and more. The breakfasts were a slice of heaven. The porch (and hummingbirds) were so enticing, fun and relaxing. But the best part of our 3 nights there was the hosts, Peggy and Barry. They made us feel like family, yet

In a word - wow! I've stayed at many B&B's over the years, and this one is really special. The house is immaculate, beautifully decorated, with a wonderful sense of history (being from 1850), and overall so lovely. Even so, it is the owners that really add that special touch
