Ideal for a economical ski vacation

3.6 on March 05, 2015

The knowledgeable and friendly owners, Bert and Heike (and their dog AJ), made us feel at home in their rustic B&B for our 4 day ski vacation. We stayed in room #6, one of the smaller rooms with a shared bath. There was plenty of room for hanging up our ski clothing. Bedding was comfortable. The common areas downstairs were nice for post-ski relaxing. The hot cooked breakfasts were good. We would stay here again.

Excellent Place for our 2nd Anniversary

Since the moment we arrived we felt like Home! Bert and Heiki are great! They treated Ruby our dog with love and compassion. We stayed in Room 8, loved the decoration, jacuzzi and warmth. It is a very peaceful place, with wireless, tv, sauna, hot tub outside, sells local beer, they were very helpful in recommending places to go and saving money in buying the Olympic Pass with them... Breakfast was lovely and homemade every morning! We just loved our stay, so close from Whiteface, hiking spots and 15 min drive to Lake Placid, everything close! Thank You so Much Heiki and Bert! Love, Magdalena, Stuart and Ruby!!

Great Experience

4.0 on February 15, 2015

From the moment you arrive, the friendliness of hosts Bert and Heike make you feel at home in this quaint BnB. The rooms are spotless and the ambiance and charm of the place makes you feel so welcomed. Breakfast each morning was great and was only a 2 minute drive from Whiteface which was perfect for keen skiers! Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a Adirondack holiday and will most definitely be back.

Quaint and Cozy!!

Want a memorable weekend or family adventure? Bert and Heike are wonderful hosts with complimentary hot soup after a long day on the slopes (Whiteface is just just minutes away) or after a day hiking in the High Peaks or fishing on the Ausable. Breakfast was superb, the rooms were so comfortable and clean, and the sauna and hot tub were a relaxing way to end a day of hiking or skiing. Truly a well-run establishment.

Great Adirondack Getaway

My wife and I stayed here with our 14 year old daughter after dropping off my son at SUNY Plattsburgh. We immediately loved the house when we walked in. The loft room was perfect for us, and the breakfast was very good. Bert and Heike are great hosts.

Nice little spot

4.0 on August 30, 2014

I stayed here while hiking in Marcy Range. It's a nice little spot, with all essential needs well taken care of. Cleanliness of the room/common area stands out. Owners are nice enough to accommodate any early breakfast requests if you're planning to head out very early in morning.

No Brainer

3.6 on March 10, 2014

Went there for the ski trip (5 minutes to Whiteface). No complaints here, the hosts were friendly (including dog :) ). There is a 3 day package deal, which is an excellent deal if you want to ski. Breakfast was nice and the place felt warm and welcoming. I will recommend the place without any hesitation.

New Year 2014

We just spend New Year at Willkommen Hof and we loved location, friendly service and amenities. The place exceeded our expectations.

Wonderful place to stay

This is our second year at the Wilkommen Hof. This is truly a wonderful place to stay in the Adirondacks. The rooms are very comfortable, the service is very warm and friendly. The breakfast is delicious and we enjoyed ourselves tremendously. We would recommend this place in a heartbeat.

Wonderful Stay at a beautiful place!

We recently stayed here this past weekend. I took my son's family as their Christmas gift. We stayed here for two nights and went to Santa's Workshop too. The Willkommen Hof Bed & Breakfast was also our first experience with staying at any bed and breakfast and it was such a nice experience. It's owned by a lovely German couple, who were so friendly and accommodating. The rooms were clean, neat and cozy. Being German and also spending a lot of time in Germany, we had hoped we would get a nice typical German breakfast and or dinner. Don't get me wrong breakfast was great, but not what we hoped for. And dinner didn't happen as they were to busy with another group. There isn't a lot of places to eat near by. We did have a nice dinner at the Wilderness Restaurant, but a little pricy for a family and not many choices for children on the menu. We did find a little place for pizza one night, but were told they only had one pizza left. LOL Never heard of that ever before. And it wasn't great! But the Willkommen Hof Bed & Breakfast was terrific overall and I would highly recommend it to anyone. Being the Christmas season it was decorated lovely, with cozy warm fireplaces going, a very sweet, charming place to celebrate a family holiday. We will return!
