4 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 9, single story
This vacation rental house belonged to my grandmother & has all the charm of a 50s & 60s summer house with the upgrades of the 80s & 90s.
The house has beds to sleep 9 all on one floor. The master bedroom has a king & a twin bed along with a private bath. The other 3 bedrooms are located at the other end of the house along with another full bath.
The house has TV, cable, wifi & a dishwasher in a very roomy, 1400 sf, single-story house. The house is fully furnished with all the plates, utensils, pots and pans in a full kitchen. We also supply bedding & towels.
Grandma’s Getaway is a great location to access Whiteface, the Olympic Mountain. The house can also be a great fishing, hiking or biking base & offers easy access to the High Peaks for all the outdoor activities the Adirondacks offers. It is close to the quaint shops and activities that Lake Placid has to offer without having to pay the higher rental rates.
Grandma's Getaway is located at the end of a dead end road overlooking an old horse pasture.

About Kim Coolidge, Admin. Assistant
I grew up in Albany and moved to the Adirondacks in 2005. I absolutely love this area. The scenery is spectacular and the people are friendly. I started this vacation rental in 2010 and have enjoyed meeting my guests or letting them have their privacy. I am available to guide you to an enjoyable stay. I provide links for things to do and places to eat. If you chat with me, you will find that I thrive on helping people get the most out of their visit. It makes me happiest to know that I have been a part of your time in the Adirondacks and will welcome you back.
Why Kim Coolidge, Admin. Assistant chose Jay
This house has been in the family for years. If only the walls could talk!
What makes this House unique
This house is spacious and is made for fun both indoors and out. The yard is large enough for you to bring a volleyball net. The fire pit is great for cool evenings to enjoy the fresh air and the stars on clear nights. The carport is awesome for those rainy days that you want to be out and stay dry.

Perfect little getaway!
Pictures do not do this place justice. It's very roomy, clean and comfortable. The kids loved having the foosball table and all the old VHS movies (once they figured out how to play them from the beginning!) Huge yard, great for games of soccer during the day and hide and seek at night! The fire pit was an added bonus and we so appreciated having firewood already there!
And Kim was very accommodating and a gracious host. We will definitely stay here again if we come back that way!!
MC and family,
Thank you for taking the time to let future guests know what a gem this house is. Our tech savvy kids are not used to VCRs, but I have quite a collection of tapes.
The yard is a fun place to get rid of pent up energy. Since it is at the end of a dead end street, you can feel assured that it is quite safe.
Nights are always relaxing after a busy day - even if it happens to rain. The enclosed porch and the car port are protection against the elements. However, it is a joy to be able to sit around the fire pit (with provided firewood). You can visit, look at the stars and love the quiet splendor of a country night.
If you are lucky, you will see some deer in the morning.
You were wonderful guests, and I would love to have you back again!
Thank you so very much!
I believe this is the fourth time that I rented this house. There's something that keeps drawing me back. It could be that Kim is an excellent host and the house has a warm, inviting vibe to it. Or it could be that it has a great view of whiteface in the distance and close proximity to the other mountains for hiking. Whatever it is, my friend's and I love to keep returning here.
Thank you for the wonderful review. I love hosting your groups. This is a beautiful area to visit. The views are spectacular! The people are friendly, the house is on a quiet dead end street. It's spacious enough for a group to eat together and fun to sit outside day or night. If the weather is a bit iffy, there is a carport and chairs to accommodate your group. When the weather cooperates, there is a fire pit and wood!
It's close enough to do whatever you want, yet it's affordable and relaxing?
Your groups are welcome back!
We had an awesome time!
The house was roomy and fit our needs. Location was good. Kim C. Was amazing! She made sure all of our needs were met in a prompt and professional manner! We would definitely stay there again.
Great quiet place
We enjoyed this place very much. It's on the end of a dead end street and is very quiet and had a lot of room for our 4yo grandson to run around. While the outside needed a little maintenance (gutters and some paint) don't let that fool you. The inside was spacious and nice. The huge dinning room table were we could sit an play games was a huge plus. We plan on going back again. Grandparents, Daughter, Son, DIL and grandchildren. Great family get away place.
Mr. & Mrs. M,
Thank you for taking the time to let others know about Grandma's Getaway.
I work to keep the house reasonably priced for its size and location.
It's close enough to many fun things to do and see! I provide a list of options! If I know ahead what your interests are, I can help you plan your stay.
Many people return year after year, and there is plenty of room to invite others.
Large house with lots of room to spread out in and outside. Kim is great and willing to respond to any issues you may have, all you have to do is let her know! Highly recommend!
Thank you for taking the time to let future renters know what they can expect when they choose my house.
It IS a great house for small groups to invite guests on and off throughout the week.
It was a pleasure hosting your group. I was glad that you were able to get to go fishing and hiking. There are so many things to do and see, that you can't get to everything in one trip.
I am looking forward to seeing you again soon.
Always check out my calendar. I keep it up to date.
Pretty decent house. Nice layout. The sitting area, game area, dining area are great. The bedrooms are very comfortable as well. The bathrooms are extremely small - the one attached to the master bed is 27 sq ft (7'x4') and the second one is barely bigger. The kitchen is barely sufficient. Kim is fantastic - very responsive and would take care of any problem right away. We had a good stay. Would not mind coming back. Would have rated 5/5 but for the bathroom size.
Grandma's Getaway is conveniently located for easy access to the best the Adirondacks has to offer! Grandma's Getaway is located 17 miles from Lake Placid and just 7 miles from Whiteface. The Ironman bike loop goes right through Jay only a mile from the house. And the house's strategic location makes it ideal for accessing the race bike course. You can even cheer on your favorite races twice in each loop using the back road that the house is along. Grandma' Getaway offers easy access to the High Peaks for hiking and all outdoor activities the Adirondacks offers.
