About Larry Sprung

We are a hockey family that fell in love with Lake Placid. We enjoy the area during all four seasons and take in all that the area has to offer.

Larry Sprung purchased this house in 2012

Why Larry Sprung chose Lake Placid

This is a property that you will enjoy. It is located on a quiet Cul-de-sac. The property gives you access to everything Lake Placid has to offer without the loud groups that frequent Main Street. We love going down to the Main Street during the day and then back to the quiet peaceful location of the home in the evening.

What makes this house unique

One of the great aspects of this home is the view of Whiteface off the front wrap around deck. Another great feature is the location of Henry's Woods off the back of the house. Gives you a great opportunity to hike and take in the scenery.

Awesome stay

  • 5 of 5

Two families with small children stayed comfortably for two nights at Chalet 5. We were very close to downtown LP. The house is located on a beautiful little cul-de-sac in the woods. There was a great view of the snow covered mountains from the living room window. The kitchen was stocked with all of the necessities. The house was clean and in great order. Beds were super comfy. I didn't think the pictures on this site did the place justice. Book it.

Fantastic Location and super nice place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there with our Elite Ski Team in January and we had a blast. The Property was as advertised and even exceeded our expectation. Starting from the convenient Garage, living space, bedrooms, gourmet kitchen.....all perfect! Thanks for hosting us and on our next visit in Lake Placid we will definitely stay there again.

Chalet #5 should be #1

  • 5 of 5

I'm torn on recommending Chalet #5 as it might hinder my possibilities of being able to get it again.

This was our second time staying at Chalet #5 and it was just as good of a time, if not better than the first. They are 2/2.

The house was perfect; cozy, comfortable and clean! Not to mention, our ski vacation went smoothly and without a hitch. I'm already in the process of booking the house again during the winter and if we are fortunate enough one more time in the summer.

Great location and lovely view!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful getaway staying in this home. The home had plenty of space. Although very close to everything, it is perfectly tucked away. There is a nice balance in the convenience this home offers to shopping and great restaurants and the actual feeling of being away from it all. The home was very clean and well maintained. Beautiful view of Whiteface from the living area! This is a perfect place to relax. We will certainly be returning to this lovely home and highly recommend it to others.

A home away from home! Extremely nice setup, whether it's for two or for many!! Comfy, cozy and relaxing. A very convenient location, easy to get to and close to downtown! Very clean with all the amenities! The view is amazing. The property owners were great to deal with, exceptional people. I would and will definitely go back. I can't wait!!!! I give Chalet #5 a Grandiose recommendation.
