Lake Placid house description

Base lLocation for Bike, Hike, Fish & Reunion House is 17 miles from Lake Placid in the quiet Hamlet of Jay, NY.

This house was my grandmother's & has all the charm of a 50s & 60s with a few upgrades from the 80s & 90s. The house has 2,100 sf of space & is modestly decorated. It's a great place to gather with friends & family!

The house has beds to sleep 10 & room for more. The MBR is located on the 1st floor with a private full bath. The rest of the bedrooms & another full bath are on the 2nd floor.

The house has cable TV, WiFi & a dishwasher in a very homey & roomy house. The house is fully furnished including plates, utensils, pots & pans in a full kitchen.

This is a great location to access Whiteface, the Olympic Mountain. The house can also be a great hiking/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.

The house is located directly adjacent to the Ward Lumber store and warehouses.

                          The White House is located on Glen Road in the Hamlet of Jay, NY, just 17 miles from Lake Placid. The house is a great base location for many activities. Swim near the Jay Covered Bridge, in Wilmington or in Lake Placid. You can shop in quaint stores in Lake Placid. There is also a wonderful craft store offering the talents of local artists and a unique Alpaca Shoppe in Jay. The Olympic Center, Whiteface Mountain (great view especially in the good weather) and Santa's Village at the North Pole (just 10 minutes away) and the Au Sable Chasm are must-see sites. Biking, canoeing, kayaking, skiing, ski jumps, horseback riding, concerts in the park and, local theaters are just some of your entertainment options. Hikers come back year after year to visit the many mountainous trails. Lake George's Million Dollar Beach, Six Flags & a Water Park are just a day trip away. Canada is also just a day trip from here. There is a lot to do and see - rain or shine!
