Property description

Located minutes from downtown Lake Placid, the Birdhouse is a relaxing, quiet, peaceful home, overlooking scenic Outlet Brook, babbling just outside. On a private drive, this three bedroom, 2.5 bath retreat offers spacious, accommodations on two levels.

The first level contains: foyer and closet; kitchen with balcony and grill; living room; one bedroom has a queen bed, half bath and small balcony; another bedroom has a queen bed , Cable TV and DVD player and balcony; and in the hallway is a full bath and linen closet.

Accessible via interior stairs and an exterior private entrance, the lower level living area includes: a lounge area with cable TV and Netflix; an adjacent sleeping nook with a king bed; and a bedroom with 2 twin beds and a large crib. A full bathroom, laundry room and storage room complete the lower level.

The Birdhouse is appointed with families in mind, with strollers, portable play pens, booster seats, a toddler bed and a changing table. Toys, puzzles and games are supplied for all ages.

On two sides of the house are small yard areas. In front of the house is a large parking area. Behind the house, is a steep embankment that leads down to the brook. At this time we do not have a trail to take you down to the brook, but you may want to access the brook by scrambling down the bank. The babbling brook is fairly shallow and we hear it may be good for fishing. If you have children, please supervise them at all times when they are outside of the house and near the brook.

The beautiful Acorn Street playground is a half mile, 10-15 minute walk, with a sand base, swings and a jungle gym.

About a mile away on Main Street in Lake Placid, you will find: Starbucks; a movie theater; Gap Outlet; EMS; good restaurants; and Mirror Lake public beach and park. To get to Main Street is a 2 minute drive, or if you are used to walking, an easy walk 15-20 minute walk. McDonald's, Hannaford Supermarket, and the new Marshalls are right around the corner on Route 86.
