About Kathy Lamb

I have lived in Lake Placid with my husband for 32 years.My husband is a native Lake Placidian and a Nordic Ski Olympian. I am a retired Hospice RN that has decided to go into seasonal rental business. We originally built this home for my Dgt and family but they have since moved.

Great location, provision for many people, very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

This IS a very family friendly place though we had to do some work to make it safe for the 3 toddlers we brought! But that would be true anywhere. It is wonderful being so close to great hikes, Placid Lake Beach, all necessary shops, The Wild Center, and more. We felt like in our week there we just scratched the surface. Kathy Lamb was always quickly available and very hospitable. We love being outdoors, so we lived/ate on the back deck after securing the opening with a gate for the toddlers. The house was comfortable and well-provisioned. A shout out for the Green Goddess: we are vegan/vegetarian and their sandwiches and grocery items were a godsend.

Great property, plenty of room for everyone!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property, close to Lake Placid and Whiteface, which is important to us because hockey tournaments and skiiing is what brings us to Lake Placid.

There is plenty of room in the house for a large family or multiple families, the kitchen is modern and good sized, the property is quiet, yet just outside of town and close enough to walk to Lake Placid or Mirror Lake if inspired. Pet friendly was important, and our dog loved running and playing on the access to the upper lots of this development. This was our second time at Kathy Lamb's property, and we plan on returning when life brings us to the Lake Placid area.

Great R&R Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Four Adult couples stayed at Mossy Rock for a little rest and relaxation before our busy winter season starts, and we have to say it was a perfect weekend spent with great friends! Mossy Rock is in a perfect location! There were plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms for all of us. Kathy was a terrific host and very welcoming! Highly recommend booking Mossy Rock!
