“Great Family Chalet in Lake Placid Village

We had an wonderful stay Moose Haven in Lake Placid during the President's / Family Day weekend. Great Olympic 'vibe' in town and at Whiteface. The house was was a pleasant surprise in that it showed much nicer than the online pictures. Clean, well-kept, fresh paint, updated appliances, well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds. Arrangement were easy as the owner was prompt and accommodating. Booking was mostly via email. House was warmed up prior to our arrival and snow had been cleared from a same-day 12'snowfall - awesome service. Our group was 2 families of 4 and we had plenty of room for eating and socializing. Good cable package for TV and Wifi. About a 7 minute walk to the main drag in downtown LP, 15 minutes to the Olympic rinks. Highly recommend.'

“Helpful, friendly, honest owner, well located pleasant house.

The owner of Moose Haven was exceptionally helpful and courteous. All my questions were answered promptly. The house was well stocked with games etc for rainy days and kayaks and bikes for good days. Walking distance from mirror lake and lake placid town center.

The deposit check was returned quickly.'

“Comfortable

It was clean and fit our extended family very well. Beds were comfortable and kitchen worked well for cooking for a group. THe location near town also worked very well for our trip. We would definitely rent the house again'

About John LaCasse

I have been coming to Lake Placid to visit family since childhood. I started bringing my wife in 1990 (she was quickly hooked!) In 2007 we fulfilled a dream by purchasing a family friendly property in the heart of the village. We have a local caretaker to address any issues should they arise. Thank you for inquiring about our property.

Feels like home walking distance to downtown Lake Placid

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay for a family getaway in Lake Placid. The home comfortably accommodated 8 adults and two young children. Even the front porch was kid friendly with gates already included. Our family enjoyed the yard, comfortably cooked and ate together, relaxed and easily explored the town. The town of Lake Placid is a personal favorite of mine, and this house added a level of comfort to our stay where hotel rooms have fallen short. Thank you for a great stay!

Summer Rental

  • 5 of 5

Moose Haven was the perfect accommodation for my family during our week long stay in Lake Placid. We were able to walk/bike to the many local shops. My daughter & husband were both involved in the Summitt Lacrosse tournament and we were only a short drive to the field locations. The house had all the needed amenities and everything from the cookware to the furniture were in great shape. My children got plenty of use out of the bicycles, air hockey & Wii. Due to time constraints we unfortunately did not have an opportunity to utilize the kayaks. The house comfortably accommodated 4 adults & 6 children.

Snowboarder/skier haven

We really enjoyed this house, it was comfortable and had all the creature comforts of home such as well equipped kitchen for cooking family style dinners, stereo system, and cozy comfy beds! And the room for gear storage is incredible. We will definitely be back.

Clean and Spacious Family Rental

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with another family (total of 4 adults and 5 kids ages 12-16) and had a perfect ski vacation. The property was very clean on our arrival and worked perfect for our two families. The kitchen is well equipped unlike some properties that lack some basic utensils. Our kids really enjoyed the Wii in the downstairs bedroom and the air hockey table was a hit. The home is very convenient to the main business district, but if walking, it is a good climb up a hill and back down. We would definitely rent this property again.

August 2014 Stay

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed at this property and were very very pleased with what it had to offer. While we spent most of our time outside twacking around the community it was comfortable at the end of the day. The front deck was lovely and we took advantage of the kayaks and bikes left in the garage - BONUS. The kitchen was updated and clean as was the family room. The main bathroom (upstairs) needs some updating and we would suggest that that more linens/towels be available. Dealing with the owner and property manager was easy and professional. The location was perfect ....we didn't mind climbing the hills but some may. We recommend this property.

2 families with 9 total in comfort

4 adults and 5 kids (ages 11 - 19) as part of larger 65 person family reunion in Lake Placid; Moose Haven offered great value; more pricey places available with not much added value. My wife and I ran Mirror Lake from here. Starbucks a handy walk. Lake Placid Lodge offers a wonderful breakfast/bruch with a view to the Lake - RSVP recommended. Moose Haven was clean & well-equipped with very accomodating owner and property manager. We took full advantage of kayaks, bikes and BBQ and late afternoon cocktail hour on the front deck as the sun moved to the west. You may need vehicle to get kayaks to beach. Kayaks, bikes and BBQ were in great shape and there was a spare tank of propane (pleasant surprise when the first ran out). Beautiful 5 minute walk to downtown ("the streets of San Francisco" kept coming to mind with the residential hills you climb thru). Nice to explore with many neat shops and restaurants... With a walk thru downtown to the beautiful beach and picnic area where we spent a day on the water and our kids participated in the "splash & dash" version of the weekly triathlons hosted by a local sports shop (name?) on Mondays. Lake Placid Pub and Brewery across the street from the beach offered a great menu and local beer.
