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!

We stayed for 4 nights and had a fantastic time. The 3-course breakfast was excellent, without repetition over the course of our stay. Barry and Peggy are very knowledgeable about the area and happy to help plan dining or a day's hiking with many guidebooks available. We felt very comfortable during our stay and hope to repeat the experience.

From our late arrival to our departure, we were greeted and pampered as old friends. A pre-breakfast coffee, gormet breakfast, conversations, etc. is standard fare at Alpine. The owners exhibited what I call European hospitality which made us feel right at home.

My husband & I recently stayed at the Homestead for 1 night, and believe me, it was like home away from home. Peg & Barry were most pleasant and friendly, and made our stay memorable. Their home was warm and cozy, and the rooms was very comfortable. The bathrooms were exceptionally clean and the decor was neat and tidy. The 3 course breakfast in the morning was delicious; everything was home made with love. We will definitely come back, only longer next time. We enjoy hiking, and there are multiple books in their living room to help you decide which trail is best for you. Believe me when I say that Peg & Barry are delightful people and we have been blessed to meet them. Looking forward to the next time we meet these charming folks!

Peg and Barry Mix are warm and loving people who will make you feel more at home than at your own home! The house is an old building, well maintained, beautifully decorated, and comfortable. Breakfast is superb.

Can't say enough good things about the Homestead! Charming ambiance plus a belly-busting gourmet breakfast. Chatting with proprietors Barry & Peggy is as delightful as it is insightful. For dinner, The Owl at Twilight directly next door is a five-star dining surprise (the shrimp/lobster appetizer is the best starter I've ever had. Ever.) The Alpine Homestead is well worth the trip any time of the year - highly recommended!

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)
