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!!

About Tom Rath
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...
Tom Rath purchased this House in 2007
Why Tom Rath chose Lake Placid
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.
What makes this House unique
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'...

Great location, great house
This is our 5 year in a row staying in this home. Tom has been great and the house is perfect. Couldn't ask for a better location. See you next year!
Great house, greater location! Perfect house for any kind of gathering I can think of!
Tom and Emily are on top of things! Thr house is in the perfect location to enjoy the town!
Huge house that sleeps 12+ adults comfortably. The big hot tub was great. 30 second walk to town is great.
Very nice week.
Easily accommodated 7 adults and 4 teenagers. Perfect location for all the different activities we had planned; hiking, swimming, running, kayaking, and golfing. The accessibility to town was great for strolling, shopping, recreating, and dining. We were even able to hike from the house to climb Cobble Hill and back. A great week in a great house. The owner was very responsive to any and all of our inquiries, thanks Tom.
