Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 2 Full Bathrooms, 1 Half- Bath, Sleeps10

This charming cottage, four bedroom, two and a half bath home is finished in the Adirondack style. The home is located in the heart of Lake Placid, in a quiet residential neighborhood, which is just two blocks from Main St. shopping and restaurants. The Hillcrest park is located just steps away with a full playground for children. This house sleeps 10 comfortably. A large screened-in porch, fenced-in yard and sun deck with a gas grill allows you to enjoy some outdoor fun, and don't forget to stop in the outdoor hot tub for a dip! Inside, enjoy the wood burning Vermont stove in the living room or watch a great movie in the cozy den while your children enjoy playing some air hockey/ping-pong in the furnished basement. Off-street parking allows for three cars. The property is semi-wooded with a mix of White Pine, Birch, Aspen, and Scotch Pine. Views of High Peaks to the southwest.

Guestbook comments from the owner

College friends reunion fun!

All the comforts needed were here. The beds were very comfortable and everything we needed to cook was available. Grill and hot tub were a nice plus. Walking down to the shops and restaurants was a breeze. Loved the spa at Whiteface Lodge and Whiteface itself. This is the perfect place to gather, enjoy Lake Placid and bond over new memories. Thank you for the ease of rental and kind service. We are already planning our next trip/reunion. What a wonderful time!

The house was gorgeous and very well placed. The location to town was perfect. A very short walking distance. The beds were very comfortable. I cant wait to set up another stay soon.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

My family as well as Debi and I were very pleased with your home. It was very comfortable

and cozy. It was great having a place where we all could be together. Downtown was a very short walk from your home also. Your house was much more than we expected. We thank you for the warmth of your home.

Spacious, Comfortable, Well Located

  • 5 of 5

The house is exactly as described in the listing. Very well maintained, lots of room, very comfortable beds and a short walk to Main Street. We are already planning on coming back during ski season. I have no hesitation recommending this house for your next Lake Placid vacation.

A lovely spot!

  • 5 of 5

Our group came for Ironman Lake Placid 70.3, and this home was just what we needed! Comfortable and cozy, and the hot tub was a wonderful treat after a long hard race!
