About Julia DeSantis
Recently relocated from NJ to FL we are now empty nesters that cannot use this exquisite property as much as we used to when we were in driving distance. My family has been living and vacationing in LP on this property for over 70 years. We have strong ties to the community and my husband and I and 4 grown children still vacation here year-round particularly in summer weeks to escape the FL heat.
Julia DeSantis purchased this House in 1999
Why Julia DeSantis chose Lake Placid
Part of a property held by my family for close to 70 years. The other homes on the compound belong to siblings.
What makes this House unique
The house was lovingly expanded and furnished over the years and is not your average bland tired rental but a well appointed family home. Surrounded by dense forest and no other homes in sight yet very close proximity to town. Lots of areas in the house to escape and chill even in a full house. Love to entertain adults in the expansive kitchen/dining area and back porch while kids can be occupied or sound asleep on other side of house. Love to choose one of the three furnished covered porches on a rainy day with a book or laptop.

Vacation with friends
Thank you for a great stay! We appreciate the ease of check in/out. Julia was wonderful to deal with and got right back to us with answers to our questions! The game room was great for the kids and we had a blast by the fire pit!
Thank you. Our home is always a hit with the tweens, teens and young adults.
Great house and location
Everything you'd want in an Adirondack vacation....
Beautiful Cottage in the Woods!
Brookside Cottage was a wonderful house that had everything we needed for our stay in Lake Placid.
Quaint setting off the beaten path, close to town.
We enjoyed our stay in Lake Placid, the home is roomy and in a quiet setting. It was hotter than usual the week we were there, so it got warm during the day without a/c, there is a window unit in the upstairs bedroom that keeps it cool.
We would stay again, it is a nice place to stay with pets.
We had a phenomenal stay, and can't speak more highly of the beautiful location... so close to town, yet so private. We took our dog on walks down the local camp roads--absolutely blissful. Would come back in a heartbeat; thanks again!
Thank you Nolan. It is a very unique setting, making it truly special. We look forward to hosting your family again.
Great cottage to stay and enjoy Lake Placid
We loved staying at the cottage for Thanksgiving weekend! It fit our two families with 2 dogs perfectly and the game room above the garage was a big hit with the 4 teen kids. Kitchen was well stocked and we were able to cook Thanksgiving dinner. Close enough to town and the grocery store that we could walk which is plus for us. Thank you for letting us stay!
1 mile to the downtown shops and restaurants and even closer to groceries, gas, banks, pharmacy, restaurants. All Olympic venues, hiking trails and public access to Lake Placid lake close by. Within 1 mile of Whiteface Club and 1/4 mile from Whiteface Lodge.
