Why Owner chose Lake Placid
Our family fell in love with Lake Placid and all the region has to offer. We are happy to share our "Happy place" with others to enjoy!
100% refund if cancelled at least 14 days before arrival date. 50% refund if cancelled at least 7 days before arrival date.
House is even nicer than pictured!
The owners hide the street address until you book, but this is right on Mirror Lake Drive, making Main Street in Lake Placid a 10-15 minute walk. The location is great with excellent restaurants and shopping available. They just installed a new hot tub, and we were the first to use it!
The pictures don't do the house justice... the lodge feel is excellent, the artwork throughout is a mini Lake Placid Olympic History Museum, and the views from the deck are spectacular. The outdoor fireplace on the deck was a favorite spot, used on every night of our weeklong stay except one.
Only negatives: 1) the temperatures the week we where there were upper 70s during the day and around 50 at night, and without central air, the 2nd floor bedrooms were a bit warm, though the first floor was fine. 2) We were the first summer renters, and first to use the house since March according to the guest book. The morning after our check in, we experienced a plumbing issue where the drains backed up a toilet, the two first floor showers, and the kitchen sink. However, we contacted the owner and the management company, they had someone on-site within two hours on a Sunday morning, and the issue was resolved same day. Five stars on the responsiveness to our issues as well!
We very much enjoyed this property and may book additional stays in the future!
Fantastic, warm & spacious
A beautifully designed home, spacious yet cozy. Great room was great for hanging out and loft was great place to relax
A beautiful home and the owners are great to work with
The home is laid out so you can have family time easily. Bedrooms are grand and view is fantastic would recommend it to group of friends or family get away.
Tremendous Home in a Terrific Location
Great property. We visited in the summer (July) for Ironman weekend and the week after. Overall, the property is even better than is shown in the pictures. I didn't really know much about Lake Placid or Mirror Lake before booking....so here goes for those who don't either...
Home - Incredibly spacious...bedrooms as described and all in great condition. Kitchen updated / great for cooking & gathering. Large family room on main level and nice upstairs room with Curling table as well. Deck in back is a beautiful location to enjoy the lake...grill situated so that you can stand and look over the lake while being just outside the door. Outdoor fire place sheltered from rain/wind so easy to get a fire started.
Dock / Mirror Lake - House is situated on Mirror Lake looking directly down the lake into downtown Lake Placid. You can get into the lake and swim directly from the dock at the house...only about 2-4 feet deep for the first 40 feet from shore, then starts to get deeper. Very nice lake for swimming (no motor boats), canoeing (they have a canoe at the house), and stand-up paddleboarding/kayaking (they do NOT have these at the house).
Town - Walkable to town on Mirror Lake Drive (very popular with runners, bikers, walkers), probably about a 10 minute walk either way (will put you on opposite sides of the town depending which way you head).
Loved Lake Placid, this house, and the entire Ironman weekend experience.
Summer lake living in the Adirondacks is definitely a vacation!
Great summary of Lake Placid and all it has to offer! Glad you had a god time.
Great time at this lovely home
Everyone enjoyed the house. Very comfortable and spent lots of time in the lake.
Wonderful house in a perfect location!
My family and I had our annual vacation at this fabulous house and we had an incredible time. The house was clean, spacious, comfortable and had everything we needed. We had 6 adults and 4 kids and we had adequate space.
The house is also in the perfect location. It’s private but within walking distance to town where there are great restaurants and shopping. If you are bringing children, you will be making many trips back and forth to town as there is a Ben and Jerry’s, a candy store and a toy store pretty much next to one another. Consider yourself warned! 😀A canoe was provided which was great. We also rented kayaks for the week from Mirror Lake Rentals which was directly across the lake. Barbara was great to work with. I had run into an issue prior to our scheduled vacation and she was so accommodating and flexible. She also responded to me immediately throughout the week. I had a few questions once we arrived at the house and Barbara answered them right away. I would highly recommend this house!
Ski: Located near world class White Face Mountain, Gore Mountain, Olympic Jumping Complex as well as cross country facilities.
