Come and enjoy the Adirondacks from our 3 bedroom/3.5 bath base camp. This open and airy home is perfect for families with kids or larger groups of people. Enjoy sitting on the large wrap-around deck or build a fire in the expansive back yard. We're conveniently located just minutes from downtown Lake Placid and Saranac Lake.
Our home is open and friendly and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do. The space can accommodate a large group of people with three bedrooms, a large living room and a second living space in the basement with a wet bar. It's great for long stays with a spacious kitchen and laundry.
This lovely two story well-insulated cedar sided home was built in 2003 by local craftsmen. It sits on a gorgeously landscaped 1 acre lot only ten minutes from Lake Placid and five minutes from Saranac Lake. Convenience and privacy all wrapped into one. Whiteface Mountain Ski Area is only 30 miles away. If you want to enjoy the Olympic Bobsled track, the Mt Van Hoevenburg Olympic Center is only 12 miles up the road.
Your first view of the home will reveal the front and side yards next to the paved driveway containing tall birches, maples and flower gardens ringed by a cedar split rail fence which is a great place for your children and pets to play. From the wrap-around deck you can enter the home through a set of French doors into the gourmet kitchen or into the four-season sun room which both overlook the nature park which is the back yard.
The first level contains a radiant floor heated two car garage, a large room that makes a great home office or gym or man cave with a wet bar and fridge and a half bath. The main level enters from the front entrance into a foyer with a view of the living room with full height cathedral ceilings and the floor to ceiling river stone gas fireplace and chimney. There are lovely hardwood floors throughout. Large windows all around and a 12x16 fully insulated sunroom off the main living room let you enjoy the light and the changing Adirondack seasons. Don't worry about the cold winters. The entire house has radiant floor heating and the sun room has a Harmon pellet stove that will keep you toasty on the coldest winter nights.
Also off the foyer is the first of three bedrooms and a full bath. Through the hallway you enter the gourmet kitchen over tile floor. Granite countertops and pecan cabinets highlight this beautiful kitchen which is outfitted with stainless steel appliances. Behind the breakfast counter is a six person dining room table. While sitting there you can open the French doors onto the wrap-around deck overlooking the huge back yard.
On the third floor are the two bedroom suites. Each bedroom has a large private bath. The master suite has a large shower as well as a jacuzzi tub framed in teak wood.
The large back yard is shaded by birches, maples, and poplars where you will often see the local deer herd passing through.
We are close by if anything is needed, but choose to let our guests be whenever possible. You will access the home via a door code so self check-in is what we usually do.
