About Kathy Lamb

I have lived in Lake Placid with my husband for 27 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 with this home. We originally built this home for my Dgt and family but they have since moved. My husband and I have traveled all over the world as he has been involved in the Olympics and international sport. My aim is for people to have a comfortable affordable experience enjoying our beautiful mountain town Lake Placid

Pleasant, Quiet Cabin In The Woods

  • 5 of 5

Mossy Rock is a very nice cabin, clean and well-maintained. In a quiet wooded area, near Lake Placid, grocery stores and other conveniences. We enjoyed the deck and grill especially! It's a good location, and the cabin was great for a family get-together. There's a Price Chopper (grocery store) about two minutes away, and Saranac Lake is less than 15 minutes away. Our hosts were easy to deal with, responsive, and good communicators. We had a great time!!

Friendly owner, easy access to Lake Placid and Saranac Lake

  • 5 of 5

Bedrooms, bathrooms were nice and spacious. The house worked very well for adults. It really is an excellent location, very easy access to Lake Placid and Saranac area -- supermarkets were right around the corner. Would recommend to anyone looking for a 4 bedroom in Lake Placid.

mossy rock

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time during our stay. The owner was very sweet and answered all our questions very promptly. The house itself was lovely and accommodated all of our needs. Fully stocked with appliances, dishware, pots, pans, utensils, etc

Only thing missing was a wine opener, but a handy screwdriver did the trick! All the rooms were very clean and nicely decorated. Definitely recommend staying here, we had a very pleasant experience.

Ironman 2014

  • 5 of 5

This was my fourth Ironman in lake placid and I wanted my family and friends to all be in one place and not stuck in hotel rooms. This house was perfect. The owners of the house were extremely professional and communication leading up to the vacation was phenomenal. Everything was taken care of from the start and we were left with an amazing time. Trolley service to town is right at the end of the road so it saves on having to drive into town and find parking. You can sit and relax in privacy at this property but also are close to all the major attractions. I would recommend this rental to any type of vacationers from those with family who want attractions nearby or those just seeking some time away. I will definitely be back... Simply Amazing!

8 skiers, snowboarders, outdoors-people

  • 5 of 5

Mossy Rock was the perfect place for a bunch of 30-somethings that needed to get out of the city badly. We skied, snowboarded, and generally enjoyed the town for 3 days. Mossy Rock is a cozy home that has the feel of a true cabin but amenities of your own home. The owner was friendly and accommodating and there was more than enough furnishings inside. It slept 8 people no problem. It has dishes, dishwasher, towels, linens, and even laundry machines! The photos don't do this place justice. Looking around Mossy Rock cabin, you'd think it was built yesterday. Literally, 5 minutes into town and a great jump off point for heading into Adirondack wilderness (30 minutes to Giant Mtn) or over to Whiteface (20 minutes). We'll be going back, so book now!
