Lake Placid bungalow description

Cute, two-bedroom, one-bath, two-story bungalow sits on one-half acre, just up from Main Street in Keene. Situated in the heart of the Adirondack Mountain's high peaks, this home offers beautiful views of Cascade Mountain, and easy access to Lake Placid (11 miles), Whiteface Mountain (nine miles), Keene Valley (five miles), and all of the best hiking trails, fishing, horseback riding, canoeing, kayaking, and skiing (cross country and downhill) that you might be looking for! The house is furnished with all sorts of little 'getaway amenities' - from a queen-size futon on the outdoor screen porch (for an extra non-winter sleeping spot for two), a bonfire pit (for roasting marshmallows), a perennial garden (with fresh herbs for cooking)...the house has a well-stocked kitchen for any kind of cooking you would like to do, a spa-like bathroom for relaxing baths (in a claw-foot tub), a large TV (for movies), and a full-size washer and dryer (to keep you with fresh, dry clothing).

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2003

                  About the owner: I first came to the Adirondacks for what was supposed to be a paddling/camping trip on Saranac Lake... it turned into a life-long addiction with Lake Placid and Keene (home of the High Peaks.) I began to live here full time until the middle of 2004, when a career opportunity back on the West Coast led me to turn it into a vacation rental. I run an international travel business these days - Global Soul Adventures ...and try to visit the Adirondacks as I can.

                  Why the Owner Chose Lake Placid:
                  The Adirondack Mountains are an especially spectacular place. They offer some of the highest peaks in the Northeastern US, which are home to hundreds of trails, lakes and rivers that offer up all sorts of summer and winter activities. I fell in love with Keene, and its prime location for accessing all outdoor adventures that one seeks. Additionally, the energy that continues to reside in Lake Placid from past Winter Olympics, along with currently training Olympic athletes, will inspire just about anyone to join in on the fun around town. The bungalow itself was built in 1930 and retains so much of its original charm - a clawfoot tub, castiron sink, and original flooring / stairs are some of the most unique amenities. I chose to offer this space as a vacation rental for others who love to travel - I am personally a traveler, and my ultimate wish is that other travelers will have the opportunity to fall in love with this ultra-perfect 'base camp' while enjoying all sorts of activities around the region.
