The Alpine Homestead
Ranked #1 of 1 Olmstedville B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 28, 2013

We stayed at the Alpine Homestead as part of a work retreat and could not have been more pleased! Peggy and Barry were fantastic, tremendously attentive hosts! They acclmpdsted our every need and were more than happy to tailor our stay to oue schedules. They prepared delicious, extensive, multi-coursed breakfasts adjusted for our dietary needs and were more than happy to provide the recipes for the dishes we couldn't live without (which was most of them). The rooms were comfortable, well kept, and spotlessly clean, as was the entire house. Overall it was a complete pleasure staying with Peggy and Barry, and we couldn't have asked for more. I would recommend Alpine Homestead to anyone and everyone.

My kids love to camp with their papa, but this mommy prefers soft beds, air conditioning and private bathrooms. The perfect solution: drop the kids at camp and escape to this wonderful B&B. Peg and Barry were very friendly and made us feel right at home. The house is beautifully renovated and immaculate. As an added bonus, breakfast was amazing too! We've already tried their recipe for baked oatmeal at home. YUMMY!

Our visit to the Schroon Lake area was anchored by staying in this lovely B&B. The owners, Peg and Barry, have turned a large, old home into heavenly comfort with many amenities. They offered suggestions to area events, and we learned some new recipes to try at home, as well. We recommmend this place because of its roomy layout and beautiful furnishings. It is well-stocked with culinary and serving items that the hosts really do use to tend their guests. We plan to return next year.

Room Tip: The Irishtown Suite has a side window that looks out into the mountains - the Alpine view!

What a place to visit for hiking and relaxation away from the hustle and bustle of crowded roads and busy lifestyles. The Homestead is very comfortable and inviting, Peg and Barry are so amiable and hospitable, and that porch...! That's the place to sit on rockers or wicker and read or chat. Breakfasts are superb--lots of variety, healthy, fresh ingredients, home-made baked items, and very nice presentation. This experience makes me want to fore-go motels/hotels when travelling but a very high standard has been set.

Room Tip: King-size bed was excellent.

We frequently pass the Alpine on day trips up north and were very curious, well, no longer! It is a gorgeous home, warm and cozy, a very enjoyable overnight. The breakfast was excellent and relaxing, we very much enjoyed the history/ pictures of the property. We are looking forward to a summer evening on the front porch with a bottle of wine and the tranquility. PS Jamison and Bailey were comforting, putting the finishing touches on the old homestead.

Peggy and Barry took wonderful care of us for an extended ski weekend in March of 2013. This was our 2nd time staying with them. We had such a good time in the winter of 2011, we had to return! We were welcomed with fresh baked cookies and hot tea. Breakfasts were 3-courses affairs with a different selection each day. The house is absolutely charming and we relished relaxing on the couch by the fire. The icing on the cake was that when we returned home and opened a bag of food we had stored in her freezer, Peggy had added a package of her baked oatmeal. We had commented how good it was at breakfast and she snuck it into our bag as a surprise!

I would recommend this B&B to anyone.

A wonderful stay with Innkeepers who truly set themselves apart from the rest. We stayed here for three nights while attending a ski race at Gore Mountain. Peggy and Barry made our stay exceptional with breakfasts early before each day of racing and Hot Chocolate and warm brownies upon our return from the mountain. A great place to stay with exceptional Innkeepers, we have stayed in many places and this B&B is the BEST!!
