Property description

This vacation rental house belonged to my grandmother & has all the charm of a 50s & 60s summer house with the upgrades of the 80s & 90s.

The house has beds to sleep 8 with room for 2 more all on one floor. The master bedroom has a king & a twin bed along with a private bath. The other 3 bedrooms are located at the other end of the house along with another full bath.

The house has TV, cable, wifi & a dishwasher in a very roomy, 1400 sf, single-story house. The house is fully furnished with all the plates, utensils, pots and pans in a full kitchen. We also supply bedding & towels.

Grandma’s Getaway is a great location to access Whiteface, the Olympic Mountain. The house can also be a great hiking or biking base & offers easy access to the High Peaks for all the outdoor activities the Adirondacks offers. It is close to the quaint shops and activities that Lake Placid has to offer without having to pay the higher rental rates.
Grandma's Getaway is located at the end of a dead end road overlooking an old horse pasture.

Please Note! Our calendar is ALWAYS up to date. We are very active in renting our properties and keep our calendars current at all times.

There are lots of activities throughout the year. Please contact us if you have specific interests or questions about the area.

Hope we can add your reservation to our calendar soon!
