Property description

This log cabin was built in 1932 as a restaurant. It still has some of the original birch tables and benches. It is located 5 miles from the trail head to most of the the Adirondack High Peaks. It also only a 5 minute drive to the center of Lake Placid. It is a beautiful building with an open deck and a screened in porch. Step off the back of the property and you experience a beautiful view of the Adirondack Mountains. Great base camp for hiking or for a place to get a taste of the Adirondack flavor.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1959

About the owner: Have lived in Lake Placid all my life. I own a bed and breakfast inside the village. When my work load lets up, I like to hike or ski and a good book is a great way to relax.

Why the Owner Chose Lake Placid, NY, USA:
This cabin has been in my family forever. My dad would only let family use it but after he passed away, we found that we needed to rent it to maintain it. All the rental fees go right back into the cabin.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The cabin is located outside of Lake Placid but is still close to town. Besides the hiking nearby, there is also a golf course, fishing and many miles of biking. There is so much to do around Lake Placid. This cabin is very much into the loop of activites.
