Lake Placid cottage description

As Lake Placid Club grew from its inception in 1895, it experienced many expansive changes. At it's height, the private club included 6,000 acres in an extensive development of accommodations, recreation facilities, service buildings, farmland and forest. In the early part of the 1900s certain members of the club were no longer satisfied with the hotel-like accommodations in the large club house. Over time some 40 cottages were built near, but separate from, the main building. Today, fewer than a dozen of these historic buildings remain. Our house, Juniper Cottage, built in 1923, is one of them. The total renovation of the property, completed in July 2005, has been as respectful as possible to the original Juniper and is designed to maximize its secluded forest setting and the variety of mature trees which surround the house.

There are 4 bedrooms each with their own screened in porch. One of the bedrooms has it's own private (gas) fireplace. Great for romance or just to 'take off the morning chill'. Three of the bedrooms have private baths (full) and the fourth bathroom has a 2-person whirlpool tub. Perfect for soaking after a long day of outdoor activities! On the lower level, a therapeutic infrared dry sauna is available for guest use.

The living room has a 14 foot cathedral ceiling, great views of the forest and a large stone fireplace. (Don't worry about bringing firewood, we supply plenty for you.) The room is perfect for sitting around the fireplace reading, chatting, watching TV, or listening to music. Juniper is equipped with high speed internet so you can use all of your devices anywhere in the house.

Juniper is close (5-10 minute walk) to town but situated in a private-wooded setting. This allows for privacy when grilling and/or dining outside. Or just when sitting with your family and friends around the outdoor fire pit.

From Juniper Cottage you can easily access many activities. It is a short walk or bike ride into town and all that that has to offer. On the Lake Placid Club grounds there are three golf courses designed by Scots for the Lake Placid Club. There are also tennis courts and a private beach on Mirror Lake adjacent to the Boat House Restaurant.
There is access to many hiking (and biking) trails right outside the front door. In the winter, these trails are groomed for cross country skiing. With a car, skiing at the Olympic Mountain of Whiteface is 15 minutes away, and, in all seasons, near-by activities and attractions are truly limitless.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2013

              About the owner: We have been vacationing in Lake Placid for the last twenty years. It is our favorite family vacation spot regardless of the season because there is always something to do. In addition, we love the international feel of Lake Placid and enjoy meeting people from all over the world.

              Why the Owner Chose Lake Placid:
              The private setting that is only minutes from downtown Lake Placid is what drew us to this property. Also, we love that it is in the historic Lake Placid Club with access to golf, tennis, and a private beach. Oh, and we can't overlook the joy of being car-free once we arrive at Juniper.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              Very cute cottage in great setting! Cottage is cozy but big enough for large families! Everyone loves using the sauna after a long day of hiking the High Peaks!
