About the Property

House, 6 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 16)

The Homestead is a gorgeous Dutch colonial home situated on a private village street, tucked away in the theatre district of the village. It is just one block to Main Street and Mirror Lake, very private but still right in the middle of town!

The home features a newly remodeled master suite with its own bath, private deck with mountain views, cathedral ceilings, and flat screen TV. The five bedrooms:

Master Bedroom: Queen Bed (sleeps 2) 2ND FLOOR
Bedroom #1: Queen Bed (sleeps 2) 2ND FLOOR
Bedroom #2: Two Twin Beds (sleeps 2) 2ND FLOOR
Bedroom #3: Queen Bed (sleeps 2) 2ND FLOOR
Bedroom #4: Bunk Bed (sleeps 2) 2ND FLOOR
Bedroom #5: Bunk Bed (sleeps 2) 1ST FLOOR
Year-Round Sleeping Porch: Double Bed & Futon (sleeps 4) 1ST FLOOR

You're going to love what we did with the kitchen and breakfast nook! We just finished remodeling (Spring 2014) and it turned out great. New mud room, new flooring throughout, stainless steel appliances in kitchen, etc...

The home also features a living room with flat screen TV, formal dining room, breakfast nook and a side room.

There is an outdoor 8-person hot tub on the deck and access to the two-stall garage. There are games, Cable TV, wireless internet (WiFi), and stereo with iPOD jack. Fenced in yard is perfect for your dog, pets are more than welcome! This is the perfect property for one, two or three families!!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We are the Rath family, we LOVE Lake Placid and know you will too! The Adirondacks are an endless outdoor playground, if you get bored up here you're doing something wrong. The Homestead is an amazing property, just a few steps from Main Street, perfect for large groups of family and/or friends...

Why the Owner Chose Lake Placid, NY, USA:
Lake Placid has it all. Four seasons of the year there is ALWAYS something to do outdoors. We spend much of our winters downhill skiing at Whiteface mountain, cross country skiing just about ANYWHERE, and snowmobiling the hundreds of miles of trails the Adirondacks has to offer. The rest of the year we enjoy boating or paddling the lakes, golfing or hiking the many high peaks in the area.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Homestead is PERFECT for larger groups, big families or families vacationing together. TONS of room to spread out. Without question, the 'fan favorites' are the huge decks, and oh yes, the 8 person hot tub! The newly remodeled kitchen is a great place to hang, if you love board games like we do, you'll be spending plenty of time in the 'game nook'...
