About Jill & Marty Gordon
Our family loves the Adirondacks and Lake Placid. Lake Placid is a wonderful family vacation destination. Fitness enthusiasts will appreciate the challenging bike terrain, miles of hiking/running/skiing trails and crisp mountain lakes. Explore the beauty that is the Adirondacks and discover why we've kept returning after close to 50 years of visits!
Jill & Marty Gordon purchased this House in 2006
Why Jill & Marty Gordon chose Lake Placid
Our family has been coming to Lake Placid for generations. We were regular summer visitors so we decided why not buy our own place in the village we enjoy so much. The home we purchased in 2006 ended up being the perfect for spot for multi-generational family gatherings with plenty of space for all to enjoy.
What makes this House unique
Location, openness and a true Adirondack spirit are some of the best features of our home -- we're in the center of the village tucked away in a quiet residential neighborhood. When we visit we walk everywhere and leave the cars behind! Some of our guests enjoy walks around Mirror Lake, a stroll down Main Street or a tour of the Olympic Arena. Other guests (and ourselves) find that our home is so comfortable that they have a hard time leaving it behind!

Great house, lots of space, and perfectly located!!!
Marty, the owner is awesome and so friendly!!! We spoke numerous times prior to us arriving and he was so helpful. The house is beautiful and the location is perfect, as it is within a five minute walk of town and all the shops. Thanks so much for letting us stay here!!!
Really nice layout and atmosphere
Very homey and comfortable. Great family experience. Near everything.
Well appointed, ultra-convenient location in town very well suited to our group of 9.
The house is located in a quiet residential neighborhood just a few blocks from downtown Lake Placid. We found it to be well appointed and equipped with all the essentials. It was well suited to our group of 9 men enjoying or 30th annual ski trip. We would definitely rent this property again if we return to Lake Placid.
Awesome first trip to Lake Placid!
Huge home with great walking access to Main Street! The heated garage allowed us to keep our ski equipment in/on the car each night after a day of Whiteface fun.
If you’re looking for a house for a large group, book here! Thanks Marty!
Great stay in Lake Placid!
Marty's house is fantastic - it's well kept, convenient to everything, and really has it all for a vacation rental. Thanks for your hospitality, we really enjoyed our stay!
Great House, Great Location ... book here!!
We had an amazing time and the house was excellent. Perfect location, very close to Main Street (walkable). We traveled with 2 families (4 adults and 5 kids). The kids loved the loft space as well as the basement, which had ping pong, air hockey, and foosball! The space was very comfortable and the home was very clean! All hardwoods, which is especially ideal for a family with allergies. And the garage is HEATED, which was great to dry out hockey gear and winter clothing! I would highly recommend staying here for your next visit to Lake Placid!
Located in the Village of Lake Placid in the heart of the spectacular Adirondack Mountains.
