    Guest Book Entry:
    Date : 12/11/2002   Time : 8:29 PM
    Name : Marion
    Email : mt****@e****.net
    Location : Brooklyn, NY
    Comments : A month of real hard work in the city and here we
    are, rewarding ourselves with a few days at Four Peaks, where Martin was
    expecting us, friendly as usual, with jam and biscuit mix. Well, I did
    succeed with the biscuits, this time around, and they were welcome, since I
    didnít bring enough bread.
    It snowed all Saturday and it was so beautiful. We hiked RattleSnake on
    Sunday and had a blast.
    Thanks again.

    [At this point Marion responds to a Guest Book entry left earlier by a website visitor who liked what she saw but complained about it being way overpriced--a common response from travelers seeking inexpensive "nickle a night" roadside cabin accommodations.]
    I have to reply to the entry guest book by Alison.
    Before criticizing a place, youíd better go, look and breathe!
    These cabins are special and remote, decorated with care and personality.
    If I may say: donít confuse "depressed" and remote. These cabins are for
    outdoors lovers not crowd digger. Good luck around Lake Placid.
    Hot water? It takes 2 minutes to warm it up on a stove. Real complicated indeed. And regarding the website, what were you expecting? The dentist office site?
    Martin, donít change your site, it is real cool! I love these old movie flashes.
    There is not a cabin like in Fourpeaks, nothing come close to them.

    Comments : WOW! Your place looks wonderful! The rustic
    nature of your cabins is breathtaking. I would love to bring my family up
    for a week in January but your prices are extremely high. We found a cabin
    just like yours in Lake Placid for $50 per night. Yours are double that and
    the place we found is bigger, and has a great fireplace and hot water! Do
    you match these prices. Where do you get off with charging so much in such a
    depressed area. Your website is also too BUSY. Good Luck with getting people
    to come stay there at those prices!

    Thanks for your Guest Book entry (below) and your remarks about our
    You may be right! I've been thinking about lowering my prices and
    getting some more visitors here instead of my places being vacant so
    much of the time.
    Please let me know where you're planning on staying. I'll check it out
    and do my best to get in line with their prices or lower.
    As for my webpage please remember that I did it all myself. It's
    home-made if you know what I mean. I just couldn't afford a professional
    webmeister like the places in Lake Placid do. I wish I could. Maybe
    after I lower my prices I'll get more visitors (like you) and I'll be
    able to to invest some of the money in advertising.
    Hoping to hear from you soon,
    Best wishes,

    [Martin thanks Marion for standing up for Fourpeaks high prices.]

    Thanks for your Guest Book entry. Did you follow the link in my email
    and did you like the photos we took?
    And thanks for standing up for Fourpeaks by speaking back to that
    Alison. I tried to get Alison to tell me where she was staying for $50 a
    night, because I don't know of a place around here at that price. So I
    made a funny reply to her Guest Book entry, but she didn't bite (c'est a
    dire--she didn't take the bait). So it's no fun.
    By "depressed" I think she meant the Northcountry up here. The "Sticks" or
    the "Stix," [Styx?] they call it. It's a poor economy as compared to NYC and other
    cities in the state like Rochester, Albany, etc. Many young people leave
    to get jobs in the cities--like my son, for example.
    Best wishes,
