Gorgeous house, Great location

  • 5 of 5

The house was more amazing in person, and the size of the bedrooms and bathrooms was impressive. Place is as pictured and more. The layout of the house was perfect for our party of 9. We had a fantastic time staying here for a 40th birthday celebration. Will definitely be renting this house again in the future.

This house is FAR more luxurious and more beautiful than the pics in the listing! I was overly shocked when we arrived and toured...It is HUGE, tastefully and perfectly appointed! We were overly impressed by every single aspect of it!! The layout of the house is perfect! The mudroom was great to tuck away all the "stuff" that gets in your way when in vacation with many people. The master bedrooms are FAB! The view of the lake could not be any better! We often stay in the 3 br suites at the Whiteface Lodge (which is awesome too) but this house is every bit as fantastic and beautifully redone! I would almost guess that the builder also built the WF lodge!! You could easily come and spend a long weekend with 3 families & have plenty of room...not sure the walk downtown is close enough in the winter for little kids in tow. We came with 10 girls to celebrate 40thbirthdays! It was the perfect retreat! Spa treatments at ML Inn, drinks on the deck, chats by the fireplace, and a great nights sleep without our kids! Bravo to the owners who have done such a wonderful job on their lake house!! I cannot think of a detail missed! None of us wanted to leave!!

Celebrated a Sweet 16 at a Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

We rented "Birches" for our daughter's sweet 16. She brought 4 of her friends. The house was perfect. It is like staying at a 5 star luxury hotel. The furnishings were beautiful, the fireplace spectacular, along with the views of the lake.

The master suite is gorgeous and affords amazing views of the lake. The kids had fun in the hot tub, walking in town, ice skating on the lake and doing the toboggan ride.

The mudroom made coming in and out easy with our snow gear.

The kitchen was fully equipped and had all the amenities one would need.

We hope to return again one day!

Fantastic, lovely home right on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

This was a fantastic, lovely home right on Mirror Lake, with plenty of amenities, space and rooms. The entire house is beautifully decorated Adirondack style, warm and a great view of the lake. The property is well maintain, very clean and excellently laid out. It is walking distance from all the local shops and restaurants and even provides Wi-Fi.

We rented this house for our daughter's wedding and all our friends and family who visited the house were very impressed with it. Definitely a home away from home to be visited more than once!

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

Living in Clifton Park, NY my wife and I often visit Lake Placid, normally staying in a hotel. This time we opted to rent a home for a long weekend with her two brothers and their wives. This home is just great. It is wonderfully decorated, clean, and has just about anything that one could ask for with respect to its contents. With respect to it's position on the lake, it is just incredible. All one has to do is to stand in the back of the house to know why this lake is named "Mirror Lake". Aside from its tastefully decorated interior, and its spectacular view of Lake Placid, it is only a short walk to town. As a frequent traveler, and renter of vacation homes, you can't go wrong selecting this rental. Plus the owners are wonderful with whom to work. We will be returning for another long weekend in the Spring.

Great time on Mirror Lake!

  • 5 of 5

We just loved this home. It was well kept, clean and furnished with a big screen that came in handy during the Summer Olympics. Kitchen was well furnished.
