              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2007

              About the owner: I moved to Lake Placid in 2005 to take a job as the physical education teacher at Lake Placid Elementary School. I love living in the adirondacks, and it brings great joy to share this communtiy with visitors. I am an avid cyclist, skier, and paddler. It is likely that you will not see me during your stay. Currently I am spending the year across Lake Champlain in VT finishing a degree in School Administration. A dear friend named Sara is taking care of the apartment while I am away.

              Why the Owner Chose Lake Placid:
              I chose to rennovate the 1st floor of my home in 2010 in order to provide visitors of this community with an affordable convernient place for them to stay.

              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
              The apartment at 278 Old Military offers visitors a quiet setting, and the convenience of being only a short bike or car ride from all that lake placid has to offer.
