About Michael

The family has been in Lake Placid permanently since 1960, but vacationed here for years before- so we know lake life! We spend our free time on Lake June boating, fishing, skiing and unwinding. Maybe we'll see you on the water!

(That's one of The McDonald Girls (my wife) and I at a Halloween Downtown Street Street party; the snake is just a friend that we met downtown.

Why Michael chose Lake Placid

We have family visit and stay with us and sometimes we overflow, so we acquired this home to make sure we have plenty of room- and the rest of the time we like to share, so we've made it available for vacations as well. Everybody should be able to enjoy a Lake June retreat!

What makes this house unique

On a canal to Lake June in Winter, the premier recreational lake in Highlands County for crusing, fishing, paddling, skiing, tubing and more. Eagles, ospreys and otters!

Dock and covered boat slip (8x17) with room for trailer parking.

The front bedroom can be set up for twin beds or a combo-King (twin beds joined)- please specify with 48 hours notice. This can also be done in the bonus room with the daybed and trundle.

Best Stay Ever & Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed at several Air B&B's and this home has greatly surpassed all others and has met all expectations. Very well kept property with all amenities. Very good location, quiet and peaceful atmosphere. I will defiantly stay at this home when in the area next time.

» Nice peaceful deck facing the water.

» Enjoyed watching wood ducks around the boat house. Would be a good location to put up a wood duck house for nesting.

» Key card available to secured boat launch.

» Comfortable beds

» Garage with remote enable parking inside when getting in late at night or rainy weather.

» Plenty of room to spread out and comfortable.

Thanks Again: Danny

Owner's Response: Thanks Danny! I hope you'll visit again. We have talked about a duck box (we have one by our house and it's fascinating to watch); I saw about 8 beautiful wood ducks out there last week on the dock and thought they probably want one there. Hopefully by your next visit. Best regards, Michael

Nice, Peaceful Setting

  • 4 of 5

We rented this Lake Placid home for five nights for a family of seven...two great grandparents, 2 grandparents, mom, and two small boys, 1 and 4. The house is located in a nice neighborhood, is very clean, and is well supplied (baggies, paper towels, napkins, toilet paper, cleaning essentials, etc.). The backyard was very peaceful and inviting. The back deck provided both sunshine and shade at the same time, so it was very usable. There was plenty of room to roam throughout the house comfortably, the bedrooms were spacious, the beds were comfortable, and the kitchen was large enough to entertain the entire family. The living room seating was also very nice. No complaints from us. Thank you Michael, for helping make our family reunion successful. If we go back to the area in the future, we would not hesitate to rent your home again.

Stay January 1-30

  • 5 of 5

The house was located in nice neighborhood. It was clean and neat. The owner was very helpful and asked at least twice if we needed anything. Things that needed attention were given to owner in a note. Would stay again and would recommend to my family and friends. Thanks Michael for making our stay pleasant.
