About Angela & Klimenty Gatker

For the past 20 years, we have been surrounded by the beautiful landscape of Lake Placid and it’s never-ending list of outdoor activities. Set in the heart of the Adirondacks, Lake Placid offers a unique and diverse setting that is just as well suited for you to relax in as it is to go on an a full blown adventure. Coming from a long background in winter sports with Klim being a US National Luge Team coach, we have enjoyed hosting both athletes and coaches at our home over the years. We now hope you’ll allow us the privilege to host you in our newly finished cozy retreat.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay at this apartment. The location is great, we loved being able to walk into town or go for a run around Mirror Lake. Despite being so convenient, it was very dark and quiet at night, which was incredibly relaxing. The garden is beautiful, and you can see mountains peeking behind the trees off the back deck. The apartment itself was comfortable, and well stocked with cleaning supplies and some basic kitchen items (salt, pepper, coffee filters, etc).

Great stay in Lake Placid

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay on our trip to Lake Placid. Convenient location, very clean, and our hosts were very accommodating, although we never got a chance to meet them. Instructions were very clear and they were easy to communicate with. We were arriving late, so they even had the place opened up with lights in for us. Very happy with our stay here.

Second time around as lovely as the first time

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfectly suited for our family of four and a great base for skiing at Whiteface. Everything is comfortable, the kitchen was great to prepare meals and everything was spotless clean. We will gladly return.
