Lake Placid house description

The Homestead is a gorgeous Dutch colonial home situated on a private village street, tucked away in the theatre district of the village. It is just one block to Main Street and Mirror Lake, very private but still right in the middle of town!

The home features a newly remodeled master suite with its own bath, private deck with mountain views, cathedral ceilings, and flat screen TV. The five bedrooms:

Master Bedroom: Queen Bed (sleeps 2)
Bedroom #1: Queen Bed (sleeps 2)
Bedroom #2: Two Twin Beds (sleeps 2)
Bedroom #3: Queen Bed (sleeps 2)
Bedroom #4: Bunk Bed (sleeps 2)
Year-Round Sleeping Porch: Double Bed & Futon (sleeps 4)

You're going to love what we did with the kitchen and breakfast nook! We just finished remodelling (Spring 2013) and it turned out great. New mud room, new flooring througout, stainless steel appliances in kitchen, etc...

The home also features a living room with flat screen TV, formal dining room, breakfast nook and a side room.

There is an outdoor 8-person hot tub on the deck and access to the two-stall garage. There are games, Cable TV, wireless internet (WiFi), and stereo with iPOD jack. Fenced in yard is perfect for your dog, pets are more than welcome! This is the perfect property for one, two or three families!!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2007

                      About the owner: We are the Rath family, we LOVE Lake Placid and know you will too! The Adirondacks are an endless outdoor playground, if you get bored up here you're doing something wrong. The Homestead is an amazing property, just a few steps from Main Street, perfect for large groups of family and/or friends...

                      Why the Owner Chose Lake Placid:
                      Lake Placid has it all. Four seasons of the year there is ALWAYS something to do outdoors. We spend much of our winters downhill skiing at Whiteface mountain, cross country skiing just about ANYWHERE, and snowmobiling the hundreds of miles of trails the Adirondacks has to offer. The rest of the year we enjoy boating or paddling the lakes, golfing or hiking the many high peaks in the area.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The Homestead is PERFECT for larger groups, big families or families vacationing together. TONS of room to spread out. Without question, the 'fan favorites' are the huge decks, and oh yes, the 8 person hot tub! The newly remodeled kitchen is a great place to hang, if you love board games like we do, you'll be spending plenty of time in the 'game nook'...
