Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: We have kids and love outdoor activities! Placid is the perfect place for us. We started running a few years ago and ran our first half marathon in Lake Placid last year. It was incredible!! The views were beautiful and the climb up the last hill to the Olympic oval for the final lap was well worth it.

Why the Owner Chose Lake Placid, NY, USA:
Lake Placid is a great place to vacation any time of year. Excellent winter sports and a great Olympic spirit, fun summer activities and great hiking all year round. Downtown Lake Placid has great shops, good restaurants, a movie theatre, night time ice skating, or a beach on Mirror Lake for swimming in the summer,fun bars and dancing. There are plenty of activities for kids and adults, you never run out of things to do!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our house is on Mill Pond. You can walk into town or you can canoe or kayak to several nearby restaurant / bars. The kids can walk to the movie theatre in town, or a bowling alley close to the house. The pond is beautiful and peaceful. Lots of waterfowl, feed the ducks from the dock, do a little fishing with the kids or go out on the canoe or kayaks. The town has a beach on Mirror Lake and this is walking distance as well. In the winter go snowshoeing, skiing, sledding all nearby.
