Property description

The Bear Den is a true Adirondack treasure! The Bear Den is a cozy cabin nestled in the woods in Lake Placid, NY that is less than a mile from main street. The cabin was built in 1930 for the first Olympic Games. Over the years, this little cabin in the woods has been renovated to have all the luxuries and amenities of modern times.

If you are looking for an authentic Adirondack vacation during any season; The Bear Den is an ideal place to stay. This hideaway sleeps up to five guests with two bedrooms and Great Room. The Great Room is a generous space where many memories will be made: telling stories after a days outdoor adventures, playing games with the family, sitting and reading while looking out the 8' picture window or cuddled up on the leather couches around fire. The fire place is stocked with ample firewood and cozy amenities all work in concert to create a memorable visit!

Whether you choose to stay at The Bear Den for a family vacation, a cozy romantic winter stay, a special anniversary, or athletic getaway to ski, bike, run, hike, climb or boat; it is the perfect lodging for up to five guests! The cabin is appointed with all the amenities you would expect at a luxury hotel combined with the privacy and charm of an authentic Adirondack Cabin.

The Bear Den is about a one-mile walk or three minute car ride to the two-time Olympic Village of Lake Placid offering boutiques, restaurants and night life!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We are the Takachs'; Stacia & Mike {parents to Zeke and Issac too :) our adorable yet rambunxious brindle male boxers!} We are small business owners who currently live in Cape Cod Massachusetts. Michael is a stone mason and Stacia runs our three small businesses. We welcome you to The Bear Den and hope you enjoy it as much as we do! Lake Placid is a magical place for us. On our second date in 2004 we visited Lake Placid to take in the splendor and beauty of the Adirondacks amidst the peak of Fall Foliage! Lake Placid is where we fell in love, got engaged and eventually married on the shore of Lake Placid six years to the day of our first trip here together! For years we had been searching for a property that not only we could love but we could share with others that feel the same way we do about the Adirondack Park! We hope that you find as much joy as we do when staying at The Bear Den. Weather you are on a family vacation, Ironman training week (or weeks), romantic getaway, honeymoon or just a quick trip with family and friends to get back to the beauty of the Adirondacks we know you will make memories that last forever! WELCOME WELCOME WELCOME and we hope to see you very soon..............

Why the Owner Chose Lake Placid:
We wanted a property that would offer people the best of both worlds. To be right in town (less than 1.5 miles form Main Street Lake Placid) and also be in a wooded setting. The Bear Den will give you the privacy and seclusion you are looking for but you are steps away from any activity or amenity you could wish for.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Our cabin is in a secluded location but steps away from town. The Bear Den can accommodate 6 people however there is a bed and breakfast at the end of our street that can assist in accommodating larger parties.
