Car: Recommended

Within the Adirondack Region is the largest publicly protected area in the contiguous United States. It is also home to 105 towns and villages. The Adirondack Park is a mix of public and private land allowing for conservation and civilization to thrive. The Park and the town of Lake Placid offer amazing opportunity for all sorts of outstanding outdoor activities for all seasons - golfing, skiing, hiking, cycling, fishing; the list is nearly endless. Lake Placid is set right in the middle of this outdoor paradise, and combines a storied Olympic past, wonderful shopping, museums, history, dining and the arts with sports activities galore.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Hi, you are inquiring about the Lake Placid townhouse of Lucie & Sylvain. We are a couple of outdoors enthusiasts who are environmentally conscious. We enjoy nature, whether it is hiking, biking, skiing, canoeing or kayaking. We love the Adirondacks. We also love Lake Placid because it is a wonderful family vacation destination. Fitness enthusiasts will appreciate the challenging bike terrain, miles of hiking/running/skiing trails and crisp mountain lakes. You can also relive Olympic history on Main Street, home of the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympic Games. We purchased this unit after 6 months of research and simply love its beautiful location. We are very happy that you are considering staying in our home.

Why the Owner Chose Lake Placid:
Our Lazy Bear Townhouse combines an Adirondack-style decor with all the amenities expected in the 21st century. Accessible yet remarkably quiet, it is nestled in wooded seclusion against the backdrop of the High Peaks. In 2014 alone, we have remodeled the kitchen and also added an outside staircase to connect the screened porch to our outdoor patio. We also love adding new accessories and ornaments on our walls.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
The tranquility: close to the woods, with the High Peaks in the back. The breeze: On all days, a delicious breeze blows through our windows. Wildlife: The other night, a couple of deers stood barely 20 feet away from us. Hares routinely visit our lawn, and we have pheasants in the back. Our Great Room: spacious and sun-drenched. Light: with large windows all around, this is never an issue. Adirondack decor: with many photos or artifacts from the Olympic Games or from the Adirondacks, we immediately feel at 'HOME'.
