*******SPECIAL ISN'T A STRONG ENOUGH WORD*******
For the 5 weeks between October 15 and November 18, we're offering special rates lower than our normal base rate. Experience Placidmere and Lake Placid for less than previously possible!
This Lake Placid home, built in 2004, is located only two miles from the village of Lake Placid, NY, but it is surrounded by hundreds of acres of 'forever wild' forest and is located directly on the Chubb River. You can paddle or fish the Chubb from two supplied canoes or simply enjoy the serenity and beauty of the river, forest and mountains after a bustling day sightseeing, on one of the nearby lakes, or in the village. The lodge sleeps 8 people very comfortably.
The great room overlooks the wilderness and the Chubb River, and has a wonderful fireplace. Also on the ground floor are a second master bedroom with queen size bed, with a full bathroom that is shared with the great room and downstairs guests, a large designer kitchen with eat-in area and a fireplace of its own, and a beautiful screened-in porch for gatherings and morning coffee The front porch runs the entire length of the house overlooking the river. A new fire pit is halfway between the river and the front porch.
The second floor features a loft with two sets of double-bed bunk beds, sleeping four. The master bedroom, also upstairs, features a queen size bed and a screen porch overlooking the river and mountains beyond. The master bathroom, with a whirlpool tub, is shared with the loft.
In the finished basement is a full-size pool table, table games and a wall-mounted 46' flat screen television with cable, a Blu-ray player and a Nintendo Wii. High-speed wireless internet access is provided in the property. Powered speakers that may be plugged into your computer or iPod are located in the great room. There is also a detached one-car garage only a few feet from the cabin.
This is a fabulous getaway for someone who loves the outdoors and likes having a peaceful environment, yet it is only eight minutes to the village of Lake Placid. Great snowshoeing and cross-country skiing in the winter and hiking in the summer. Enjoy the best of both worlds in a true Adirondack setting.
PLEASE NOTE: We have never asked our guests for a 'review' but recently we added some comments from our guestbook . In our guests' own words, these can be found by clicking the 'Owner Info' tab and scrolling to the bottom that section.

Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: I'm a native of Lake Placid and my family still lives there. I built the cabin in 2004 on land located along the Chubb that has been in my family since the 50's. I now live in Texas with my children but we make it back 'home' several times a year!' There is something very special about Placidmere Lodge. Home to both the the 1980 AND the 1932 Winter Olympics, Lake Placid offers skiing, skating and snowshoeing in the winter, and mountain climbing, hiking, canoeing, fishing -- basically it's a paradise for outdoor activities.
Why the Owner Chose Lake Placid, NY, USA:
Guests have described it as if you are in a treehouse. It is uniquely remote while being 7 minutes from Main Street, Lake Placid. A true getaway in a family lodge, catering to a discerning clientele.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
