About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10-14)

Our home is a very comfortable spacious family friendly house located less than a 3 minute walk to the heart of Main Street in Lake Placid (Starbucks, Steak and Seafood, Movie Theater). The home is ideally suited for 2-3 families with children to experience a wonderful vacation. It is very kid friendly and designed to let you kick your shoes off and relax. The Master bedroom has a King Bed and a 6 foot picture window with mountain views. There is a second Queen bedroom and a large bunk room with 2 sets of bunk beds and a full daybed. There is a 55" television in bunk room and xbox one. The master bedroom and bunk room are upstairs with a full bath and 1 bedroom with queen bed is on the main floor with a guest bathroom with a 48' shower. One set of the bunks is a full size on the bottom and a twin up top and the other set is 2 twin beds. There are video games in the bunk room as well as cable (XBOX one and Wii). The fourth bedroom is a private ground level suite with a second living room, kitchen, bedroom and bath. All bedrooms have a television and cable (master has a 42"). The bunk room is a very large and gives the kids somewhere to hang out and play games.

The main floor of the house and fourth bedroom suite were completely renovated in 2009 including the comfortable sun room, living room, dining room, kitchen, guest room, main floor bathroom. The downstairs suite is private and very comfortable. The entire second floor was renovated in June 2016 (Master bedroom, bathroom and bunk room).

There is walk out access to the deck with views of the Mountains and Mirror Lake. Their is a 55' HDTV in the living room with surround sound and full cable. Their is plenty of natural light and all the ceilings have been done in Pine and high hats for a very Adirondack feel. There is a comfy couch in the sunroom and an additional tree stump pub table for 4. There is also a full pub style dining room table which is also ideal for playing games (including POKER and we keep a full set of poker chips in the house). The living room also has a couch, chair and ottoman. Overall it is a very open floor plan with room to spread out. We converted the large granite fireplace to gas to allow that comfortable feeling of a warm fire with push button convenience.

The kitchen has brand new appliances and granite counter tops. The Kitchen is fully equipped to cook meals and has open space between dining room and kitchen.

About Christopher

We have been vacationing in Lake Placid since the early 1990's. It all started with an annual trip up for the Rugby weekend each August. As our family grew we moved from a weekend trip in a hotel to week long vacations in condo's then renting homes. We started coming up multiple times a year and in 2009 found a perfect getaway for family. We love Lake Placid and it has become a big part of our family's life.

Christopher purchased this house in 2009

What makes this house unique

We feel so lucky that we chose this home for our first trip to Lake Placid. Chris the owner was very available and easy to work with. The house was SO well-equipped, beds were very comfy , large table was perfect for eating, playing games and doing lots of laughing! It is a quick walk to restaurants, shopping , activities. We had a great time with our 3 adult kids and their significant others!

Adorable house walking distance to town!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience with this property and Chris, the owner. There were four of us and this house was perfect for us! Really cute with all the things you would need for a stay away from home. The house was very comfortable, so much so, none of us wanted to leave. It was great having one big bedroom upstairs and one downstairs, each with their own bathroom. The house isnwalking distance to the town and right down the street from Starbucks! Chris was amazing to work with! Provided us with restaurants to try and things to see. We will definitely be going back!

Great House for My First Ironman

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at this house for the LP Ironman with my family of five plus friends with family of four. Absolutely great location. 5 minute walk to town and all of the Ironman events including the swim start, transition and most important the finish. Two big rooms for both sets of adults and the bunk bed room with two sets of bunks plus a day bed was great for the 5 kids. The head of the household Chris reached out well in advance to ensure we had directions as well as put together a suggested "must do" LP list. This being our first time to LP, it was very appreciated. The house is fully furnished, tastefully done, and has everything you need in the kitchen, as well as games for the kids on a rainy day. Looking forward to staying again in the future.

Amazing Experience!!! Very Responsive, Responsible Owner Great House

  • 5 of 5

I am a little behind in posting this. My family stayed Dec 20-27, 2014 at this winter wonderland. Chris was responsive and the house was better than advertised. Clean, everything worked, he even talked me through gas fireplaces for dummies at check in over the phone. Our family has a lifetime of memories from that one special week. Thanks Chris. Sorry for the delayed review. House was AWESOME.
