About The Owner

This is our family in action. We spend most of our time on our sailboat Kialoa V racing and cruising the caribbean and east coast of the U.S. so that is why our home is on VRBO. My husband and I have owned many different houses in Lake Placid over the last 27 years and we always have had them in a vacation rental program . We love Lake Placid and always come back to enjoy a week here and there during every season. We love to come back in the winter time for skating, skiing and snowboarding as well as enjoying all the olympic venues. Summer is our time for hiking, fishing, swimming and wake boarding. Fall is one of our favorite times to be in Lake Placid with the changing of the leaves. There is always some event going on in Lake Placid no matter what time of year. We love our home and I think you will enjoy it as well.

The Owner purchased this house in 2006

Why The Owner chose Lake Placid

We chose to buy this home because of the location in Lake Placid. The kids can walk downtown to the beach on Mirror Lake. We are 5 min walk to the jack rabbit trail and Lake Placid Lake. My husband and I love to walk out the door and walk to shops downtown as well as restaurants. The second reason we bought this particular house was the size of the house. We love to entertain and always have lots of company so we need a large house.

What makes this house unique

I love to cook and our brand new gourmet kitchen will thrill you too.

Even with lots of company i can always find privacy wether in the Library or reading a book on my day bed off our bedroom. The other wonderful thing is the outdoor Living. The large yard with the big deck the back garden and sunroom as well as the front porch with swing.

Wonderful weekend at a wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

Eight college roomies enjoyed our annual reunion weekend in Lake Placid at this wonderful house. We all described it as eclectic as it is filled with all different kind of things so that every time you turned around you saw something new and fun! Spacious does not begin to describe it. So many bedrooms and bathrooms that all of us girls never had to worry about shower time!! The kitchen is where we hung out the most and it is filled with everything you need. We didn't get a chance to enjoy the deck other than to check the weather but that would have been fun too. Eileen answered all of my questions so promptly which is such a plus. If I could make one small suggestion it would be a better light over the dining room table to brighten up. That was our other hang out! Other than that our stay was pretty near perfect. Thanks Eileen for letting us use your home!! I will definitely recommend it to anyone heading to Lake Placid.

Great Location, very fun house, the deck and kitchen fun hangout

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this house for the Lake Placid Ironman. It was a great location easy walking distance from downtown and the venue. We had friends over for dinner and found the deck a great place to hang out. Plenty of beds and big kitchen.

comfortable spacious great location

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 14 included eight kids under 12 years old who loved the "in-house movie theater" and played for hours in the large fenced in backyard - which the two dogs also appreciated. The adults loved the large professional grade kitchen, a private bathroom attached to each of four bedrooms, the very large deck where we barbeqd multiple times while watching the kids play kickball. The driveway can probably accommodate 6 to 8 cars. There are many private sitting areas where one could relax away from the crowd. We walked to town, to the Mirror Lake beach, to the supermarket - great location. The only suggestion to improve the comfort level would be to add air conditioning units to the four main bedrooms - it certainly cools down in the evening but during the day coming back from a walk in the summer heat - a cool bedroom would be welcome. There were fans but they merely spread the warm air. We will certainly be back and would highly recommend the house.

Our large family thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this clean, very spacious home a few weeks ago in Lake Placid. Each family had their own bedroom and bathroom. This lovely home was more than adequate and far exceeded our expectations. We have rented a number of VRBO and this was by far one of the best we have ever stayed in. The kitchen was professionally done and very well equipped with everything we needed and more. There was a lovely deck and backyard with plenty of seating for all of us. The children enjoyed the home theatre. The dining room was large with plenty of seating there as well.

This home is within walking distance of downtown and very close to grocery stores.

The owners were very helpful and easy to contact if we had any questions. We had inadvertently left a few items behind and they we kind enough to mail them to us at their expense. This was very much appreciated.

We look forward to coming back to this home again for future family get togethers. We would highly recommend this property to anyone with large groups wanting a great place to stay. Our one and only complaint is that we wish we had booked a longer vacation.

Perfect locatin

  • 5 of 5

Our group of family and friends enjoyed our stay in this spacious and cozy home. There's enough space and bathrooms for everyone and the kitchen is professional grade! The location is absolutely perfect, being close to downtown yet quite enough for a relaxing stay. The owner is very helpful. I specifically love the instruction board in the kitchen. We would gladly come back here in the future.
