Property description

Enjoy the Adirondack lifestyle in one of the original Lake Placid Club Cottages. Elms Cottage was built in 1926 and retains its original charm with its pine hardwood floors, screened porches, stone terrace, and stone fireplace. Rustic elegance with top of the line furnishings. Unobstructed views of the High Peaks and the Olympic bobsled run are available all year from every room except one. The stone terrace, with views of the Sentinel Range and the bobsled run, is a wonderful gathering area with a large lawn.

There are four bedrooms, each with its own en suite bath. The master, with a king bed and screened porch, is on the second floor. The second bedroom upstairs has two twins with original Lake Placid Club iron frames. (The twins will be converted to a king bed upon request.) One of the first floor bedrooms has a queen bed. The other is equipped as a second gathering area with a queen sleeper sofa, TV with DVD player, and screened porch. All beds, bedding, and towels were recently upgraded and replaced. (The sleeper sofa is a sling style; i.e., there is not an iron bar across the middle of the bed).

The living room and dining room are comfortably furnished in the Adirondack style. Huge windows provide stunning views of the High Peaks and fabulous sunsets. Wood is provided for roaring fires in the original stone fireplace. The fully-equipped gourmet kitchen has a new dual fuel range, a full range of small appliances, and plenty of wine glasses. Full laundry room with new, large capacity washer and dryer.

There is so much to do! It's an easy walk from Elms Cottage to the Village of Lake Placid, Mirror Lake, and Lake Placid itself. In the Village and around the lakes you'll find shopping, the Olympic hockey stadium and ice rink, public tennis courts, boat rentals, equestrian stables, restaurants, and pubs.

You can also walk to the Lake Placid Club golf courses. Challenge yourself on the two championship courses or enjoy a quick nine holes on the Club's executive course. In the winter, you can ski from ELMS Cottage to trails that crisscross the golf courses. Downhill skiing at Whiteface Mountain and cross-country skiing at the Olympic Sports Complex at Mt. Van Hoevenberg are a short drive away. Renters have access to the Lake Placid Club/Crowne Plaza private beach on Mirror Lake, a 5-minute walk from the cottage. The beach usually opens on July 1.

Lake Placid, the home of the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympics, is 2 hours from Albany, 2 hours from Burlington, VT, 4.5 hours from NYC, and 2.5 hours from Montreal.

The Lake Placid Club golf courses, Jack Rabbit hiking trail, public tennis courts and public beach are all an even easier walk. Renters have access to the Lake Placid Club private beach on Mirror Lake (opens approx.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

Why the Owner Chose Lake Placid:
After many years of renting vacation homes and staying at hotels in the Lake Placid area, we decided we would like a place we could count on for great views, comfy furnishings and beds, and amenities like good cookware and plenty of wine glasses. When one of the original Lake Placid Club cottages became available we couldn't resist. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
It's an easy walk to the charming Village of Lake Placid, yet you feel like you are miles away. The unobstructed views of the High Peaks - from every room except one bedroom - are stunning. The original stone terrace, which faces the High Peaks, is a relaxing spot to start and end your days in the Adirondacks.
