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!

Lovely Family Home

  • 5 of 5

Before having the pleasure of staying in this home, the communication and ease of renting procedures (payments, arrival information, etc.) from the owners was wonderful. They were very pleasant to speak with and made the entire process enjoyable. The home itself was fantastic for my family. Having bedrooms with large beds was a huge selling point and the layout of the home and bedrooms made it very cozy and welcoming. We enjoyed the side deck for sitting, chatting, and grilling. We really enjoyed the hot tub as we relaxed under the stars. We would rent again in a heartbeat and strongly recommend to anyone looking for a rental themselves.

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!

Perfect Ironman Home Base

  • 5 of 5

A friend booked this property for Ironman Lake Placid in 2016 and I was excited to be able to stay here for the 2017 race. It's a perfect location, just close enough to walk into town, but far enough from the excitement to beable to relax in the tense days before the race. After the race, the hot tub was ideal place to relax and recover. The house was quiet and cozy with plenty of space for a pre-race pasta party.

The basement was perfect for storing bikes and gear, and the downstairs shower was fantastic for after the race when I couldn't have climbed into the beautiful but high claw foot tub.

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and would love to stay again until the future.

Lake Placid was great......

  • 5 of 5

This house worked perfectly for our vacation.

House highlights (in no particular order):

1. Close and simple walk to town

2. Separate 'den' - people can watch television without disturbing others

3. Hot tub - yes!!!!!!

4. Grill and outdoor seating

5. Generally plenty of room

Biggest issue: Bathroom upstairs is a tub/shower - it is difficult getting in as it is a bit high - my solution was to use the nice shower in the basement.

Minor issue: The street address is really the back of the house - so we had some minor confusion.

The owners were wonderful and gracious (thank you) - don't hesitate to rent this house.
