Lake Placid house description

Wonderful Location -- Year-Round Activities -- Escape to the Adirondacks and Enjoy the Comforts of Home

This home is the ideal getaway for family groups to enjoy together. Discover the convenience of being in the center of the olympic village while relaxing in a quiet and peaceful setting. Escape the hustle and bustle of home without having to isolate yourselves in the deep woods.

Unwind on one of our two secluded outdoor decks. The lower deck is screened and has a porch swing, table and chairs -- nice for evenings with wine and cheese. The upper deck has a picnic table, comfortable cedar Adirondack chairs and a gas BBQ -- great for taking in the mountain sunshine.

Our cozy den has a beautiful gas fireplace and large screen TV. The spacious Adirondack great room has cathedral knotty cedar ceilings and plenty of room to relax and unwind.

Centrally located in the heart of the historic village of Lake Placid.


Leave your car parked in the heated two-car garage while you explore the village, walk to the Olympic Arena, catch the Whiteface Ski Shuttle, jog around Mirror Lake or bike the fabulous scenic mountain highways.

Easy access to swimming (Mirror Lake), biking, skiing, tobogganing and many other outdoor activities. Enjoy a relaxing stroll to dinner at one of the many fine restaurants and pubs in town. Sample some of the award winning micro-brews or savor your favorite wine without having to worry about who is going to safely drive you home. Easily accessible in the winter.

At-home recreation includes: Hot Tub (8 person), Gas Fireplace, Professional Quality Ping-Pong Table, Air Hockey, Foosball, High Definition 42'' Plasma TV, High-Speed Wireless Internet, small library.

SPECIAL IRONMAN RENTAL INFORMATION (Sorry, Ironman rentals are no longer available)

Please note that for an Ironman rental we will require a two-week total rental --this may be split between two visits - a late spring training visit and the actual event visit -- the event visit must end on a Sunday -- most past Ironman athletes have stayed the week after the event. Since our normal rental week for the summer is Sunday to Sunday this is the only way for us not to ''lose'' part of two very popular July rental weeks. Our home is perfectly situated for Ironman -- no parking issues (a serious consideration for this race!) and walking distance to the swim and transition area -- plus a hot tub for after the race.

As fellow triathletes we try to be fair to Ironman athletes while not negatively affecting our peak rental season. We do this two ways #1 - We do not increase our normal summer rates for Ironman and #2 - We request the two-week total rental described above.

                  About the owner: We both love the Adirondacks and Lake Placid. Lake Placid is a wonderful family vacation destination. Fitness enthusiasts will appreciate the challenging bike terrain, miles of hiking/running/skiing trails and crisp mountain lakes. Explore the beauty that is the Adirondacks and discover why we've kept returning after close to 50 years of visits!

                  Why the Owner Chose Lake Placid:

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Location is one of the best features of our home -- we're in the center of the village tucked away in a quiet residential neighborhood. When we visit we walk everywhere and leave the cars behind! Some of our guests enjoy walks around Mirror Lake, a stroll down Main Street or a tour of the Olympic Arena. Other guests (and ourselves) find that our home is so comfortable that they have a hard time leaving it behind!
