About Owner

Originally from the suburbs of New York, I was born in Lake Placid, because I was born in the summer, and Lake Placid has been a summer destination for my family for generations. I lived in Burlington VT for many years, and have been living and working in Boston now for almost a decade (Beacon Hill). I would spend as much time as I possibly could in Lake Placid, as I grew up a huge lake and mountain girl. But, my husband's family has a vacation home on an island off the coast of Maine, so time needs to be split in the summer. And, our winter ski weekends seem harder to come by with a new baby in our lives. Hence the need and desire to share my home with others, and help them enjoy my beloved Lake Placid experience.

Owner purchased this House in 2006

Why Owner chose Lake Placid

Daisy Hill Lodge is on a large area of land that has been in my family for generations, and my siblings and I were fortunate enough to be able to build our own vacation homes on the property. I built mine while still single in my 30's, designed to be the perfect getaway for a young growing family, and with the intention of it being my retirement plan. I'm quite glad I did that in '06, because Daisy Hill Lodge is looking much more beautiful than my 401k these days!

                                                Thanks Ryan, you were pretty awesome yourself. Hope you can come enjoy Daisy Hill again - with the new hot tub next time! The winter has unique charm but it's an entirely different experience in the summer to consider as well.

                                                Daisy Hill is a delight.

                                                Barbara B.

                                                Beautiful home and great location. loaded with amenities. Lake Placid is a great place to visit! Home is perfect for a family with kids. If the group is adults only, keep in mind that two of the bedrooms are downstairs with one somewhat small bath. One of these has two low twins perfect for kids... not so much for adults.

                                                This is a wonderful home nestled in the woods with spectacular views. Highly recommended

                                                Barbara H.West Hartford CT

                                                My husband and I and our young adult children spent a glorious week at Daisy Hill. The kitchen/ great room is perfect for sharing meals and conversation and the view from the deck and hot tub was beautiful - even better than in the pictures. The place was comfortable, clean, perfect for our needs and did not disappoint one bit. Martha and the home caretakers were quite responsive and made sure that the hot tub was ready for us upon arrival. The hiking and kayaking was great, the town with lots of shops and restaurants. We would absolutely stay here again if we find ourselves returning to Lake Placid!

                                                Not the get away we were hoping for

                                                Kimberly J.

                                                On arrival we went to the deck to admire the view & my daughter was stung by a bee - there was a bee infestation under the hot tub cover. I immediately called the owner Martha & her caretaker who dismissed me immediately claiming he was an hour earlier and there were no bees. It took 6 calls and 6 messages before Martha picked up her phone at 10:30pm and acted surprised by my call. One of the persons in our party was allergic so we were very concerned. It took 2 complete days of our vacation for the owner to get the bees under control so we could enjoy the deck and the hot tub. On the 3rd day we could finally use the deck & hot tub.

                                                The listing stated there was an outdoor grill, but, when I asked the owner where the grill was she blamed it on the listing site and said it was their error. At this time it still reads that there is an outdoor grill.

                                                Another issue is no AC in the house and with 90 degree days it was unbearably hot especially at night.

                                                Then after leaving the house spotless and everything in place where we found it (we even washed the bed sheets) - she claimed we used her hot tub chemicals (we did not touch them) and that there were broken items and kept a large portion of the deposit.

                                                We were hopeful because of the great reviews here on Home Away, but, unfortunatley it was a bad experience. There are lots of great choices of homes to stay in - unfortunately we chose wrong.

                                                Owner's Response:

                                                These were not renters you ever want at your property. After 8 years of renting to delightful and happy families this woman was brutal. Indeed a bee hive formed on a deck, in summer, in the Adirondacks.I felt horrible her daughter was stung and my caretaker (a fireman) offered assistance. I I confirmed with the Ironman family that had just left they had been using the tub the night before so it literally formed that day. My caretaker got right on it with spray and then I had our exterminator come to ensure it was gone. I also told her I would rebate her that first night and the whole stay if she wanted to leave. I wish she had. She declined. It was unfortunate that I accidentally didn't have my phone with me that afternoon she got there, but fortunately my caretaker was reachable for her. Indeed there is no outdoor grill..we have a wonderful indoor Jenn air grill that faces the deck...because we don't want to attract animals and insects...like BEES! I indicated having a grill on my original listing, which at the time didn't say "outdoor" and I've addressed this with home away. I never said we had AC and never needed it personally...few places in LP do. its up on a hillside with tons of Windows and screen doors. My caretaker, his wife who cares for the hot tub and grounds (and is law enforcement) and my housekeeper all reported many issues when they left, And she had never sent a security deposit! (Nothing to keep!!!) Balled up sheets wreaking like urine found under a kids bed, broken lantern on the porch, a brand new expensive bottle of tub chemicals she just opened was emptied etc...(and the tub dark green). And she lied repeatedly throughout her stay, about things she told my caretaker's wife I said and things she told me he said. I can't believe I still sent her the night refund, less a very small token amount for all they ruined (less than a hundred). Damage may not have been her personally, any of it, as she had a bunch of pre teens and teens with her. Only time I've ever had to keep a dime. I had such a bad feeling about this woman from the start, and I offered them to leave with full refund, and should have trusted my instincts.

                                                Beautiful house with amazing views

                                                ross o.

                                                I rented this house for a week for Ironman Lake Placid and I can't say enough good things about it.

                                                The owners were great, very responsive and very easy to deal with. Check was very straight forward and the house was spotless clean upon arrival.

                                                The setup of kitchen/living room area is perfect for entertaining and has some amazing views of the area.

                                                The bedrooms are spacious and very comfortable.

                                                The hot tub on the deck is the icing on the cake. The perfect way to unwind and hangout after the race or after day of hiking or skiing.

                                                I can't recommend the place enough!
