About Kelly

Outdoor enthusiasts and do-it-yourselfers my husband and I can be found touring around the Adirondacks on our motorbikes, hiking in the woods with our dogs, skiing and riding the slopes at Whiteface Mountain or hanging out on the water on Lake Placid.

The guest house was a 2-part labor of love, the building was built when we used to race cars to work on our race cars in, and the space above was a summer project I did to give friends and family a place to stay. We decided a few years ago to open it to other guests on VRBO when friends and family are not visiting.

Kelly purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Kelly chose Lake Placid

We find renters like the close location to town and the quiet and private setting - a home away from home. A large percentage of our renters are repeat and that says a lot to us that we are doing our job of creating a relaxing, clean, comfortable place to stay while visiting Lake Placid.

Great private spot!

  • 4 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed here in October. We try to come to Lake Placid once a year to hike and enjoy the scenery. This spot was a great 1-bedroom place that met our needs. We could cook breakfast and lunch or even dinner one night to save on some money of eating out. The place was also private and had parking for us. I would definitely stay here again.

Great place & location.

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect setup for us and a good location: close to Placid but on the East side so easier to get to anything in that direction: Keene, Whiteface, Mt Van Hoevenburg, the Ausable, etc. The apartment was comfortable and very private - like your own place, separate & well off the road for super quiet. Kelly has everything you need in the place and was there to meet us with the place all set. This worked out great for the weekend. I wish we stayed longer!

Wonderful place!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time using VRBO and we couldn't have asked for a better experience! Kelly was great! The apartment had everything we needed and was so nice and cozy! It was a great place to relax after spending all day outdoors. We will definitely be contacting Kelly for future stays. Plus, VRBO will be our "go to" instead of a hotel, if possible. Thanks Kelly for making our first time so enjoyable!

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights and it was perfect! Private location but close to town. Clean and well maintained place that had what we needed. We loved being close to everything. Met Duncan and he couldn't have been nicer and more welcoming!

Clean, charming, peaceful, convenient

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was just what we needed. I'm extremely picky when it comes to cleanliness and Kelly and Duncan's place was spotless. Very convenient to Main Street and other attractions. Owners are great and right there if you need something. Will stay again if we come to Lake Placid in the future.
