"The site was great. View is amazing, and the backyard was perfect for all of us. Kids fished off the dock and we enjoyed the view and watched them. Plenty to do with local attractions and then the you could have fun with the canoe and kayak that are on site. The neighbors were awesome as well. My son caught a nice size large mouth bass right off the dock. Our boys are 15 and 10 and they liked the cottage more than Disney. The cottage was very clean and plenty of room for the 4 of us. Would recommend this cottage specifically to anyone. Tom and Lisa"

Ironman Lake Placid rental home - perfect location!
"A group of 10 of us (and my little dog) stayed at this unique house. We loved all the antique details inside the home and the updates, like new showers on the 2nd floor and the amazingly huge remodeled kitchen.
This house was in the perfect location for IM Lake Placid as it was within walking distance (1/2 mile) from downtown main street and just 20-30 minutes away from the Oval (race venue). We loved being a bit tucked away from Main Street but it was still accessible - and this house was very close to the local grocery store!
We loved the house from the small "movie room" and huge dining room table (which made for great dinners together) to the mudroom and front hall to store all of our triathlon gear. There is SO much space in this house!!
I would highly recommend this house for big groups. The only downside is that it only has 2 showers (but 5 bathrooms and 2 clawfoot tubs) so people would need to share if they prefer showers over a bathtub."

"My family and I have been going to the Adirondacks every year since I can remember, and we always stay at a different rental place. Until now! Mike and Chris have the most lovely home, in a perfect, private location. There is no where else to stay where you have 3 full baths, 3 gorgeous bedrooms, a full kitchen (stocked with all the necessities, no less!), a gorgeous living room with fireplace, huge deck, and access to boats/kayaks on a idyllic waterfront location for these prices. You literally cannot beat this - a boring hotel room for the week costs more! Not to mention the absolute wonderful owners - these people truly want your stay to be perfect and go out of there way to be sure it is. I can't say enough about this place and Mike and Chris. My family and I will never stay anywhere else again!"

"What sets Healing Wood apart from other vacation rentals is the attention to detail of the furnishings, décor and setting. The house retains the charm of a bygone era, from the kitchen's cast iron stove to the porcelain wash basins. (There are fully modern appliances, so don't worry about building a fire to heat up the tea kettle!) The well stocked library will keep inquisitive minds occupied for days, all while reading in the warmth of the late afternoon sun streaming through the French doors. It's like walking back in time to your grandparent's home.
The home is located a short walk from Upper Saranac lake and within easy drive of the villages of Tupper, Saranac and Placid. Recommend the boat tour on Placid to see the grand camps, including Kate Smith's camp. The Wild Center is a gem in nearby Tupper and aviation buffs can arrange flights out of Adirondack Regional (KSLK) to see the high peaks from up on higher! Hiking the Ampersand trail to the summit provided a view that was worth every rock and foot of elevation gain along the way.
A memorable vacation in a special home, we hope to return again to Healing Wood."
