Lake Placid lodge description

DeScente Lodge is located on Riverside Drive, just 4 miles outside of the village of Lake Placid, and 5 miles from Whiteface Mountain Ski Resort. The property includes the Lodge, which is set back from the road 300 yards, a large front yard, and access to the Ausable River just across the road.

The Lodge has a large modern kitchen, large dining room, and living room, with a fireplace that opens to both living and dining areas. Its six bedrooms and three bathrooms offer a perfect spot for a group to get away for a ski, golf, hiking, or fishing trip. Ideal for a large extended family group as well. It's not a hotel; it's a home. Have fun during the day, gather back at the house for social time; then cook dinner as a group or go out to one of the many excellent restaurants in nearby Lake Placid, Saranac Lake or Wilmington.

Keywords: Large, adirondack style lodge/home/cottage to accommodate recreation groups, families, business groups for weekends or full weeks.

              Manager info

              Year Purchased: 1980

              About: I am the nephew of the owners of this property and am managing the rental of the Descente Lodge. Our family has spent many fun filled weeks at DeScente Lodge with our cousins over the past twenty five years, enjoying the wonderful ambiance of the Lake Placid area. DeScente Lodge was the residence for the Japanese Olympic delegation during the 1980 Winter Olympics. The Brazill family from New Jersey bought the lodge after the Olympics and have spent many Christmas and summer vacations there with their 8 children and grandchildren since that time.

              Why Lake Placid:
              DeScente Lodge is a perfect spot for a vacation any time of the year. Whiteface Mountain Ski Resort is a 7 minute drive, Lake Placid Village is a 5 minute drive, and there is great hiking, fishing, swimming, boating, golfing, shopping, dining, within 10 minutes of the Lodge. The lodge offers the privacy of a country hideaway, yet is within minutes of everything the Adirondack Mountains have to offer. Riverside Drive is the route used by many athletes for their daily training; it's a great road to bike, walk or jog. Just get up in the morning and do your workout on the road outside your door.

              The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
              DeScente Lodge is a perfect place to spend a long weekend or full week with a group of people who love to hang out together at the house or go different ways during the day and meet back at the house in the evening to share drinks, dinner and stories of that day's mountain climbing, golf , boating, or shopping adventures! Large dining room table seats 12 and additional tables available. Large eat in kitchen, and large living room also provide plenty of room to gather for socializing. Large upstairs master bedroom has a king bed, with 2 available rollaway beds. Upstairs bedroom #2 has a double bed. One bathroom upstairs for upstairs bedroom. Downstairs bedroom #1 has two twin beds. Downstairs bedroom #2 has two twin beds. Downstairs bedroom #3 has a queen and a twin bed. Two bathrooms are in the downstairs hallway. Sleeping porch can accommodate a queen size Aerobed if needed. Cottage bedroom has queen bed.
