Nice location, lots of room, lots of character.

  • 5 of 5

Very nice first and second floors, with loads of room and lots of light. Third floor is better suited for kids or teens. Great parking for a large group, which sometimes can be a problem in Lake Placid, especially in winter. Easy walk into town. Our entire group had a really enjoyable stay.

Lake Placid

  • 3 of 5

House needs some tender loving care but had loads of charm.

Cleaning service should pay more attention to 3rd floor bedrooms.

Owner needs to check all amenities and verify all in good working condition.

Cold week in a warm house.

  • 5 of 5

Older house but kept up well. Plenty of linens and kitchen equipment. Close to town. We had 3 families there and there was plenty of room. Had a great time!

Great time for all!

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was with 3 families. The house is rather large so the kids had their own space as did the adults. The layout really worked for all of us. The beds were comfortable too.
