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!

Beautiful well kept home conveniently located

  • 4 of 5

I would really rate this a 4.5 star. We enjoyed a mid December weekend with our daughter and 4 of her friends to celebrate her Sweet 16. The home is nicely furnished and very clean. The wood stove was a nice cozy touch. The house is configured in a way that allows separation among the guests so you can have quiet time if that is what you want. The only improvement I can think of would be a second tv, maybe in the basement where kids could watch a movie if adults are using the den. It was very cold while we were there and the girls wanted to hang together at the house in the evening but ended up watching a movie on a laptop. The bedrooms are nicely separated from the living spaces so if some are sleeping others can be up and about without disturbing them. A beautiful home in a great community, we loved it!

Great house for family stay

  • 5 of 5

Lots of nooks and crannies to relax in. The weather was beautiful enough that we were able to sit on the deck to watch the kids in the hot tub. Great that there were lots of beach towels provided as the adults also joined in! The kids also loved the air hockey/ping pong table and took advantage of the park located nearby. Didn't even get a chance to sit on the large front porch! Great location, nicely furnished, and well stocked. Highly recommend

Perfect Lake Placid Stay

  • 5 of 5

I booked this house for a group of seven 30somethings-year-olds for a relaxing weekend getaway over Labor Day, and we couldn't have found a better place. The house was very clean, well-cared for, and had great personality with Adirondack elements throughout. The common areas were spacious and comfortable, and the four bedrooms were all great. The grounds were well maintained, and we made excellent use of the bbq and hot tub! There was lots of space for parking, and the neighborhood was very pleasant and quiet. It was a short, enjoyable walk to the main strip. I received my full deposit back in a timely manner. Overall, we all were very happy with the property and don't have anything negative to say. Any of us would stay there again without hesitation! I would absolutely recommend this rental.

Beautiful home and town

Our 3 families (10 people- 6 adults and 4 kids). Loved our stay in Lake Placid and your beautiful home. The kids loved the air hockey table and the hot tub. We hope to come back again. Thanks so much! It was a relaxing family vacation.

Beautiful house and so close to the village!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Patricia & Tim's house for 3 nights for our family of 5 (5yr-olds twins and a 22months old toddler) and another family of 4 (6yr old and an infant) and I can't emphasize enough what a great fit this house was! From a fully stocked up kitchen (we cooked 2 out of the 3 nights), to the eat-in kitchen and long dinner table (so we could have the kids eat in the kitchen and the adults have some quality time at dinner), we really had a great time! The bedrooms set up was great (all 4 bedrooms on the same upper floor) and the hot tub was definitely a great opportunity to remove the kinks from our skiing days! We also went out one night and we literally walked the 2 blocks to the restaurant (granted we are from NYC where we walk everywhere!).

For the one incident we had, the agency put us in touch with Scott, who came within 15 mins of our call!! This is unbelievably good service and I highly recommend this house!

Thank you for your hospitality!
