Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: Recently relocated from NJ to FL we are now empty nesters that cannot use this exquisite property as much as we used to when we were in driving distance. My family has been living and vacationing in LP on this property for over 70 years. We have strong ties to the community and my husband and I and 4 grown children still vacation here year-round particularly in summer weeks to escape the FL heat.

Why the Owner Chose Lake Placid, NY, USA:
Part of a homestead property held by my family for close to 70 years. The other homes on the compound belong to siblings.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house was lovingly expanded and furnished over the years and is not your average bland tired rental but a well appointed family home. Surrounded by dense forest and no other homes in sight yet close proximity to town. Lots of areas in the house to escape and chill even in a full house. Love to entertain adults in the expansive kitchen/dining area and back porch while kids can be occupied or sound asleep on other side of house. Love to choose one of the three furnished covered porches on a rainy day with a book or laptop.
