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 Adirondack Mountains

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 is one 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 place and great location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the stay at the beautiful house. It was a perfect size and nicely furnished. The kitchen pots, pans, plates, and utensils were all top shelf.The beds were all comfortabe. The only problem we may have had were the sleeping arrangements for the last 4 of 12 people. They have to be willing to sleep in top bunks and in a loft. However there was a futon that we didnt utilize. We plan on considering this place for next year if available. We would recommend this to others with consideration for the bedding of a few.

Great property. Great location, short walk to the Village

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 6 of us that stayed at the property for the inaugural Ironman 70.3 race. We did a 4 night stay. The house is very roomy & comfortable. Located on a very quiet street. We enjoyed the deck off the kitchen/living room & as well as the outdoor hot tub on the lower deck. Location is a short walk to village, ice skating oval & to Mirror Lake. I highly recommend this venue whether visiting during the summer or planning a ski weekend in the area. Thank you Marty & Jill.

Nice, clean, spacious house near town

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay in this large, clean house near town. The house was as advertised and true to the pictures. Great kitchen and porch. Very quiet. As others have mentioned its a steep uphill and downhill to town. Would rent again.

Very nice, cutely decorated.

  • 4 of 5

All was in order when we arrived. Adorable decor. Loved terraces, loved open living room/kitchen. Large parking area fits at least 4 cars!

More steps than expected, split level layout so must walk either upstairs or downstairs. Would not be good for elderly, but it was perfect for us!

Had a great time!

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us - we strive for perfection so four-star ratings are rare and not acceptable to us. With that said, we appreciate your comments and strive to clearly communicate that our home is made up of three levels and is not suitable for folks with mobility challenges.
