This little gem of a bungalow was perfect for our getaway! My husband and I and our dog Skye stayed at Hill Top in early October. Located in the heart of the Adirondacks, we were centrally located to all the mountains had to offer. Owner Kate had provided us with plenty of information pre-check in and upon our arrival ensured everything was clean and well stocked, with many unexpected amenities provided. Kate's beautiful photography, local maps and brochures were abundant and available for reference, and little notes were thoughtfully placed throughout the premises providing helpful information ranging from operation of wifi and TV to use of kitchen equipment. We had the pleasure of meeting the neighbors and their friendly dogs - really nice people who were happy to answer questions or assist with anything. We particularly enjoyed sitting in the screened in front porch looking out onto the mountains and spectacular foliage. A few notes that might be helpful to anyone considering Hill Top: WiFi is good but if you have AT&T as a carrier be prepared to drive near town (Lake Placid) for reliable phone service. The owner does provide a phone for emergency calls but service is limited. The staircase in the home is typical of an older home - a little narrow and winding - so any guests that travel with older, larger dogs should plan to have their 4-legged companion remain downstairs. Also, best to do your grocery shipping either in Lake Placid or Elizabethtown - those larger towns will have more product options and better pricing, although there are a few local stores that carry staples and yummy baked goods and spirits. I would definitely return and recommend this bungalow to singles or couples!
