About the Property
4BR, 4 Bath close-to-town location in the Lake Placid Club area
Juniper has 4 bedrooms each with their own screened in porch and bathroom. The master bedroom has a gas fireplace (gas), queen bed, sitting area with two chairs, and a closet. A second bedroom on the main floor has a queen bed and closet. The third main floor bedroom has two twin beds and a bathroom with whirlpool tub. The fourth bedroom is located down a spiral staircase from the main floor to a walkout lower level. This bedroom has two twin beds and a private bathroom. The laundry room is also downstairs with both a washing machine and dryer.
The living room has a 14 foot cathedral ceiling, great views of the forest and a large stone fireplace. The room is perfect for sitting around the fireplace reading, chatting, watching TV, or listening to music on the Sonos system. Juniper is equipped with an iMac and high speed internet. Want to unplug? Then feel free to read one of the many books at Juniper, play one of the board games or do an old-fashioned jigsaw buzzle.
The kitchen is equipped with a refrigerator, gas range and oven, dishwasher, coffee maker, toaster, microwave and a large selection of dishware, glassware, pots, pans, utensils, etc. If you prefer to grill, there is a gas grill right outside the front door.
If you come in the winter to ski, we have plenty of room for your equipment. There are racks to hold eight sets of skis. Also, inside the front door is a small, heated mud room with benches and coat racks so you can easily remove your winter clothes and boots without bringing them into the cottage.
There is a small shed near the parking area of Juniper to put garbage and recyclables. And in the back yard there is a hammock for enjoying the good weather and a lean-to in case you want to spend a night outdoors.
Juniper is close (10 minute walk) to town but situated in a private-wooded setting. This allows for privacy when grilling and/or dining outside. Or just when sitting with your family and friends around the outdoor fire pit roasting marshmallows.
From Juniper Cottage you can easily access many activities. It is a short walk or bike ride into town and all that that has to offer. On the Lake Placid Club grounds there are three golf courses designed by Scots for the Lake Placid Club. There are also tennis courts and a private beach on Mirror Lake adjacent to the Boat House Restaurant.
There is access to many hiking (and biking) trails right outside the front door. In the winter, these trails are great for cross country skiing. With a car, skiing at the Whiteface is 15 minutes away. In all seasons, near-by activities and attractions are truly limitless.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

About the owner: We have been vacationing in Lake Placid for the last twenty years. It is our favorite family vacation spot regardless of the season because there is always something to do. In addition, we love the international feel of Lake Placid and enjoy meeting people from all over the world.
Why the Owner Chose Lake Placid Club (Lake Placid, NY, USA):
The private setting that is only minutes from downtown Lake Placid is what drew us to this property. Also, we love that it is in the historic Lake Placid Club with access to golf, tennis, and a private beach. Oh, and we can't overlook the joy of being car-free once we arrive at Juniper.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Very cute cottage in great setting! Cottage is cozy but big enough for large families! Each bedroom has its own bath and private screened in porch. 4 couples can share time together in the great room and kitchen or separate to their own private rooms and porches for quiet time. Want to sleep outside...bring your sleeping bag and spend your night in the lean to in the back yard. We fell in love with this cottage the moment we saw it and knew our many years of looking for the perfect home in Lake Placid was over. We know you will enjoy our home too...for its secluded setting, its close proximity to the village and the feeling of peace that comes over you when you finally arrive at Juniper Cottage.
