Lake Placid house description

This is a lovely Queen Anne style Adirondack home that offers a very private setting in the heart of Lake Placid. It is ideally situated next to the newly renovated Hillcrest Park and is only a two minute walk to the center of town's shops and restaurants.
This is a comfortable home ideal for large groups and families in particular. On the main floor there are two separate living rooms with televisions. Cable and wi-fi is available. The kitchen is fully equipped and the dining area seats 12. There is a covered porch adjacent to the dining area suitable for outside entertaining. The main floor is completed with an entry foyer and a half bath. The front of the house is entered through a large wrap-around covered porch. The second floor features an ensuite master bedroom with king bed, large sitting room and private balcony. The second bedroom is large with a queen bed. The third bedroom is smaller and contains a queen bed. The third floor contains two large bedrooms. The one on the back of the house has a queen size bed and twin bed with a trundle and has excellent mountain views and a partial lake view. The bedroom on the front of the house contains one fullsize bed and twin bed with a trundle and big TV. This is a great room for kids. Again, great mountain views from this room.
There is a large fenced yard with outdoor fireplace great for any outdoor activity and de-stress time all year around. Kids of all ages can take advantage of the park which is immediately adjacent. The driveway wraps around the house with easy parking for a few vehicles. Village amenities are a short walk away.

                                  Owner info

                                  Year Purchased: 2011

                                  About the owner: Our names are Dusan and Magda Janak, and we came to this country from the Czech Republic and Poland 22 years ago. We very much enjoy living here and we especially love the natural beauty this country has to offer. We live in Keene, New York. My husband and I take pleasure in all outdoor activities including hiking, kayaking and golfing in the summer and downhill and cross-country skiing in the winter. At vacation time we like to take backpacking trips and cross-country excursions on our motorcycle.

                                  Why the Owner Chose Lake Placid:
                                  We love Lake Placid, and think it is a wonderful place for everyone; from people seeking the peaceful serenity of the Mountains to those looking for outdoor adventures. We used to come here every year to enjoy the views and beautiful hikes and lakes. We love the High Peaks Region with its gorgeous views and hiking challenges; in fact, we love Lake Placid so much that we decided to purchase this house so that we can come here and enjoy it more often.

                                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                                  This house has a very comfortable layout for a large party of people. It has two living rooms, a porch coming right out from the dining room and nice little fenced in yard where you can allow little children to play safely. An outdoor fireplace allows you to enjoy the outdoors during cooler nights or winter months; and maybe even roast some marshmallows. And…location, location, location! The house is so close to all of the Lake Placid attractions including the Olympic Arena and the public beach on Mirror Lake, not to mention restaurants, bars and stores; all of this within walking distance from the house
