Lake Placid Sleigh Rides Reviews & Ratings
Though some reviews out there almost drove us off, as did the locked gate and lack of signage upon arrival, Travis met us at the gate (luckily) when we came back after searching for the place after believing we were either lost or got scammed. No sleigh bells or hot cocoa, but Travis gave a good ride & was very knowledgeable about the area & was quite engaging. I think a little more attention to those details aforementioned, and maybe additional help & phone coverage/attention would help. We enjoyed the ride despite mother nature not providing the best for the scenery, bit it was still pleasant & memorable
Horseback Trail ride. Had a great time!
This place is an absolute scam. My mom booked a sleigh ride in june for december 29. First, they sent her the wrong address, luckily they went earlier in the day so they could know where to go. When they got there there was nothing. We then proceeded to talk to the lake placid police. They explained that they have scammed people many times before. However, the state police were in jurisdiction. The state police told us they have been arrested for similar charges and luckily, when we called with the state police they decided to return our money. My brothers also went to the location in lake clear, also closed. Please if you read this DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THEM!!!
Travis was a great guide and the scenery was great I just expected it to be longer
THIS BUSINESS IS RUN BY CRIMINALS!!!! The manager, Natalia, is the most unprofessional woman I have ever been in contact with. I was told I had a job there and took time off from my jobs to drive 4 hours to train at the farm. Not only this, but I did so the day after having surgery and was not even compensated for my preliminary work. I trained with Travis, who is pleasant. After training, I moved to Saranac Lake with the belief that I had a job awaiting me. When I arrived, ready to work, Natalia ignored me and never responded to my multiple messages. She left me in a position with financial instability and clearly has no remorse. She should not get business when she treats people so poorly. I will be spreading my story around and I only hope that she gets treated the way she has treated others. SARANAC LAKE — The co-owner of a popular horse camp, horse rescue and sleigh riding business in Lake Clear has been charged with felony grand larceny for allegedly defrauding a customer of more than $10,000 in August. State police arrested Natalia DeValinger of Adirondack Wild Horse Camp on Monday. DeValinger and her husband Travis operate XTC Ranch at 766 Franklin County Route 18 (Forest Home Road) in Lake Clear. Several other business names are linked to the same website, phone number and address, including Adirondack Equine Center, Adirondack Equine Center and Horse Rescue and Saddleback Horse Camp of Lake Placid. An internet search for “Lake Placid horseback riding” or “Lake Placid sleigh rides” also links to the XTC Ranch website and phone numbers. Natalia DeValinger is charged with defrauding a man from Catskill, New York, who signed up for two weeks of horse camp in summer. The man alleges that he canceled his trip and demanded a refund, having paid $2,720 for the camp. According to the allegations, not only was the refund never granted, but DeValinger continued to charge the man’s credit card, with a total monetary loss to the victim of $10,047. The horse camp hosts groups of children for overnight camp at the ranch, where they learn horseback riding. The DeValingers own up to 40 horses, many of which are rescues, and have been featured in several area magazines. She was arraigned for one count of grand larceny in the third degree in Harrietstown town court on Monday before Justice Ken McLaughlin. She was remanded to the Franklin County Jail in Malone in lieu of $8,000 cash bail or $16,000 bond. By Tuesday afternoon, she had posted bond. She is scheduled to reappear in Harrietstown court on Dec. 11. This is not the DeValingers’ first run-in with the law. On May 27 of this year, Travis was charged with aggravated sexual abuse in the second degree. Negotiations with the victim and the district attorney resulted in that charge being reduced to assault in the third degree, for which Travis DeValinger was sentenced to probation. He currently faces a possible violation of the terms of his probation and is scheduled to return to Harrietstown town court at 3 p.m. Nov. 27. In 2015, the DeValingers filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, which was granted. On March 20, 2012, Travis DeValinger, then listed as living in Keeseville, was arrested and charged with forgery relating to a transaction with a local tractor sales business. According to the police report, he had forged signatures on paperwork filed with the tractor sales business. Charged with two counts of second-degree possession of a forged instrument, he was remanded to Essex County Jail on $10,000 cash bail. That charge was later reduced to a charge of disorderly conduct, a violation. DeValinger was fined $100 with a surcharge of $125. He paid the costs, and the case was closed. In March 2008, Travis DeValinger was charged with felony grand larceny for allegedly writing a bad check to a Saranac Lake bank. According to the police report, DeValinger knew he did not have funds to cover the check. That charge was also reduced. In February 2009 DeValinger pleaded guilty to petit larceny and given a conditional discharge
