We are also within walking distance of the start and finish of Ironman. Our home was completely renovated and with great care given to every detail and in keeping with the original theme and style. From the well thought out Adirondack décor, to the radian heat, vaulted ceilings, detailed painting and private bathrooms.

It has two completely separate levels that can be rented individually or together. The downstairs or lower level has three bedrooms and private bathrooms in each plus a half bath as well. There is lots of closet space plus a TV in every bedroom and a large entertainment system in the living room plus a washer and dryer. There are large windows throughout and each room is uniquely painted with some having radian heat. The kitchen is high end and open with everything you will need for that family and friends get together. Our dining area seats eight plus we have a private outside deck to enjoy with a table, chairs and large gas grill.

The upstairs or upper level also has three bedrooms and two full baths with a washer and dryer. The kitchen is high end with a Viking range and everything needed for your meals and our dining table seats eight. The living room has a large entertainment system and it and the master bedroom has high vaulted ceilings. There is also a private deck with a table, chairs and large gas grill to enjoy.

Each level is its own separate floor, has a private entrance and is 2000 square feet. The house can also accommodate up to eight cars for great off street parking.

For all of you Ironmen and Ironwomen, there are many great rides and runs right out the front door and with Mirror Lake, the beach and tennis courts about a five minute walk over.

We accept pets but we will require an additional security deposit.

About The Owner

My name is Jack Irvin and I was born and raised here in Lake Placid. I own my own construction company. I have done a lot of outdoor activities around here including a tin man, ski racing, cross country skiing and can suggest a lot of great skis, bike rides and hikes to you - just ask me!

Why The Owner chose Lake Placid

Its proximity to town and my love of older classic homes like this. I preserved the 'arts & crafts' style classic architecture in every detail of it and hope you like it as much as I do!

What makes this house unique

I tried to think of everything that you would need during your stay, from large TV's in every room, to well thought out lighting, fully stocked kitchens and private parking.

Guestbook comments from the owner

An Excellent Long Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our long weekend break and we are already missing Lake Placid! The accommodations were awesome: very clean and in close proximity to all that the town offers. The house is warm and nicely decorated with plenty of natural light. The beds are comfortable and cozy. There are two "common areas" in the unit which was great because we had 2 adults, 3 kids and a dog on the trip. We spent two days skiing at Whiteface (about a 15 minute drive from the house). The house is one block from all the downtown restaurants and fun shops. It is literally just a 5 minute WALK down the street to all the action. We also were able to rent ice skates in town and skate on the frozen Mirror Lake. We will definitely come back again...the house is a gem and it is perfectly located!

We loved this house. Much bigger than appears in photos. We slept 8 comfortably. Walking distance to town and restaurants. We were as comfortable as can be. Big well equipped kitchen too. All in all fantastic. Rudy and Jack were a pleasure to deal with.

We stayed there over the holiday break. It was a great place. The location was perfect, walking distance to the village. The house was very clean and updated, tons of parking. I would definitely recommend this as a rental.

Great Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying at this house and as always we had a wonderful weekend. It was a cold weekend (below zero) and the house was always very warm and comfortable. Close to town to everything we needed to do. After a cold day of hiking it was nice to come home to this warm and cozy house. Our favorite place to stay when visiting Lake Placid. Dealing with Rudy and Jack is always easy and they are always very accommodating!

Wonderful house!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house this past long weekend and never wanted to leave! The house is just absolutely beautiful and was more than spacious! We stayed on the first floor and could not believe how amazing the house looked. It was apparent that Jack did a great job with the house. We were three couples plus a 20 month old and dog who decided to stay here and it was more then enough room for all of us. The kitchen was spacious and updated. We also liked that each bedroom had its own bathroom/shower. We've already started planning as a group to visit Lake Placid again (as we do yearly) and plan on staying here again! Close to everything which is also very convenient. Thank you for everything! See you soon!
