Sunburst Cottage is the premier rental property on Mirror Lake located at a remote section of Mirror Lake which is the center of all the Lake Placid experiences.

Lake Placid is an all season Olympic area - site of the 'Miracle on Ice', athletic and fitness activities, and the great beauty of the mountains and lakes within a two hour drive of Albany, NY; Montreal Canada or Burlington, Vt international airports.

There is a plethora of things to do regardless of the weather including the various Olympic venues.

Take a bodsled ride year round - you will never forget the 'champagne of thrills'. You can also take a luge ride, try biathalon shooting, watch the ski and aerial jumpers year round, climb local Cobble Mt and pick some blueberries or climb one of the 46 high peaks -become a '46er'.

Watch the figure and hockey skaters year round or skate the Eric Heiden oval or Mirror Lake in the winter. There is a winter bodsled shute onto Mirror Lake that is great fun. Try a dogsled ride.

The Olympic Center has plenty of events including regular ice skating performances.

Enjoy the boating and fishing. Using worms from Sunburst docks it is an incredibly short 30 second wait to catch a fish! The children love it. Roast some marshmellows and sing some campfire songs at the Sunburst lakeside fire-pit and cement some more memories.

Watch all the lakeside action, floral & fauna, loons and stars from the Sunburst 6 person hot tub.

Watch you children put on an evening performance from the Sunburst deck or lean-to.

Use Sunburst's lakeside yard for your favorite games from baseball to frisbee, corn hole to football or croquet.

Relax in tranquility and catch up on some reading and cuddle on the 2 lakeside Adirondack swings.

See some special Adirondack sites like driving to the top of the almost 5000' Whiteface Mt, the Visitors Interpretive Center at Paul Smiths or the Wild Center in Tupper Lake.

There is so much to do it is hard to rank them all. Favorites, other than those noted above, include: golfing -no waiting - with plenty of courses to choose from, boating, biking, tennis, movies, outdoor concerts, quaint shopping in the Village, great in-town dining and barbecues at Sunburst.

Sunburst has no window shades on its lakeside so the morning wake-up is of the thoroughly refreshing views of the Adirondacks mist on the lake, the birds, loons and jumping fish.

The fresh air of the pines and brilliant skies at night result in a very restfull sleep that is a Sunburst bonus. You wonder why this is not possible when you return to the city.

Everything is convenient from the 24/7 grocery stores to the infamous brick sidewalk around the lake just outside Sunburst's entrance. The kids may choose to set up a lemonade stand to take advantage of the traffic or you could sit in the Adirondack chairs and do some people watching.

Sunburst is one of a kind and more than 60% of our guests return over and over again locking up their dates well in advance for the unforgettable memories. Two of our children held their wedding receptions so their guests would have the unique experiences Lake Placid, Mirror Lake and Sunburst offer.
