"We stayed in this apartment for 5 days. 2 adults and 2 teenagers. It was perfect! The location is ideal - right in the middle of town with everything just outside your front door - shops, restaurants, Olympic venues. Despite the proximity to everything, the place is quiet. By far, the best thing about this apartment is that it is lakefront. You have your own dock in the backyard. We watched the sunrise every morning over the lake and mountains. It was amazing. You can swim, rent paddle boards & kayaks and hike. The owner, Willie, is great too. A great experience! We would rent here again!"

Spring Skiing Getaway - Perfect Location / Cozy and Comfortable
"My wife and our two boys (9 and 5) made a late-season long Easter weekend trip to Lake Placid (our first) and Delina's Grand View Escape apartment was the perfect home base for our weekend.
The house is on a quiet neighborhood street just seconds away by car and minutes away by (hilly) walk to downtown Lake Placid. The home has essentially everything you need and is truly turnkey. Every detail has been thought through, and immediately impressed with the accommodations, floor to ceiling. Both bedrooms are quiet and comfortable, with excellent bedding and mattresses in each room. Our younger boy had an adventure and slept on the pullout couch which also seemed on the newer side. As an Ironman in training, it made me smile to think about the "M-dot" magnet on the fridge and the "Swim Bike Run" ceramic coaster on the ottoman. In fact, if and when I ever register for IMLP (didn't get in this year so we're heading to IMMT, but that's another story), this would be the first place I would look for (me and a lot of others, my guess...).
There is a home upstairs and I think Delina lives there, although our paths didn't cross while we were in town (very quiet if she was!). That being said, she was more than accessible if needed (and as I said the home had everything, so we didn't need much!). A book that was provided explained a number of local attractions, and in fact we found it to be spot-on for a few of the restaurants recommended.
Grand View Escapes is a short, scenic drive to Whiteface, where we spent 3 full days over the weekend. I also was able to head out for a nice morning run around Mirror Lake - door to door it's about 3 miles round trip.
For our budget and our needs, this really could not have gone any better and if available we will definitely be back. We made memories! Thanks so much Delina and Grand View Escapes."
