Escape to the bygone era of simplicity and elegance that is showcased in our 1850 Adirondack country home. Sitting majestically in Essex County, New York, you will find the B&B neatly tucked between mountains, brooks and pines. We are minutes from world class skiing,downhill and cross-country, and many, many trailheads for snowshoeing, snowmobiling, and hiking. The 3000 lakes and streams of the Adirondacks provide many opportunities for water sports. Upon arrival at the Alpine Homestead you will be warmly welcomed by the innkeepers, Barry & Peggy Mix and introduced to the small Irish community of Olmstedville, in the town of Minerva. Mornings will begin with a hearty multicoursed breakfast that will prepare you to relax with a book or take part in the many seasonal activities that are at our doorstep. Come...Stay...Enjoy!

The Alpine Homestead is a clean, charming and inviting place to stay. The innkeepers--and their two well-behaved dogs--are wonderful as well. I highly recommend it.

What a wonderful stay! The best B&B we have stayed at and we have stayed at many. So friendly ,warm ,and the food out of this world! Everything top notch. Peg and Barry are so friendly . We loved the 3 coarse breakfast and we went away so full we didn't eat till supper. All food from scratch! I love the Millet muffins and she gave me the recipe! I can't say enough and I highly recommend this B&B. I feel like we have made 2 new friends and will go back to stay again. Thank you for the wonderful stay! P & A (A retired nurse)

My wife and I visited the Alpine Homestead B&B for three days. It was our first B&B experience and it was excellent! The food was fantastic (and there was a lot of it!). The hosts were warm, welcoming, and accommodating. Everything was clean and the house was gorgeous. Bailey and Jaime (two golden lab mixes) really made the place feel like home too!

Recently, my partner and I spent a wonderfully relaxing time with Peggy and Barry at The Alpine Homestead. Everything about the room was perfect, down to the chocolates sitting alongside the refreshing ice water. The breakfast every morning was a feast for the eye and the soul! It was a perfect blend of nutrition, hospitality, grace, a excellent cooking! I will always cherish the muffins and the French Toast!!!! Most importantly, our hosts were engaged and made us feel at home. We had wonderful conversations, they were highly knowledgeable able the region and where to go for food or recreation. I am looking forward to a return visit!

It was, for my wife and me, our first experience in a B&B in America. Honestly, we can only make a 5 star review: Barry and Peggy Hospitality, cleanness, marvelous breakfast, calm and quiet in a natural environment. Strongly recommended. Montreal, Canada

My family stayed with Peggy and Barry Mix for 3 nights for a ski vacation. We enjoyed their warm hospitality which it made feel like you were staying with dear friends. We enjoyed the lodging, spacious great room for relaxing, a 3 course breakfast every morning, and a warm barn to stow our ski gear in every night. To say it was comfortable doesn't do the property and hosts justice - it was simply ideal. We will be back anytime we ski at Gore or enjoy other activities in the area.

We arrived on a snowy evening and we were greeted at the door by Peggy. She invited to warm by the wood stove, and offered us tea, fresh baked cookies and warm slippers. We relaxed in the huge great room, next to a roaring fire with plenty of comfortable leather furniture and (because it was Sunday) Barry tuned in some football on the big screen TV. Very gracious hosts that really made us feel welcome to thier lovingly restored grand old home. The place is immaculately clean, very comfortable and inviting. Our room was the Tannery room, and we slept soundly, no creaking old bed frame- just high end touches that are the norm for this place. Peggy asked for our dining perefence for the morning and then prepared a 3-course county breakfast that was Food Network worthy. This was a class operation from the time we walked up to the time we grudginly had to leave. SInce we ae moving into the area Peg and Barry will be our go-to place for our guests and I know they will be as impressed as we were.

The hosts were very friendly and accommodating. They will give you copious information about the area. The B&B is very clean. Not a thing was out of place. The bed was very comfortable. The breakfast they made was imaginative and delicious. We especially liked the baked oatmeal. They included an edible flower with the meal, which was a new one on us. Their wi-fi had a strong signal and was fast, which was surprising considering how far they are from a large concentration of population.
