About the Property

Spacious, Well-Appointed Waterfront Condo w Fireplace In Village Of Lake Placid

Newly renovated, attractive, immaculate, well furnished 1200 square foot waterfront condo on right on Lake Placid (Lake), with a view of Whiteface Mountain. Yet, you'll be right in the charming Village of Lake Placid too... just a short and delightfully scenic walk on the brick Olympic sidewalk which encircles Mirror Lake to shops and restaurants. Let us spoil you! With this great location you have it all: The pristine beauty of Adirondack water, sky and mountain plus all the fun that the village of Lake Placid has to offer! This charming one bedroom condo sleeps 2-4, is at walk-in level (no stairs to climb), with its own off street parking lot right outside your door. The neighborhood is quiet and restful. Yet, you're close to everything! Available year round as well as for weekly and seasonal rentals. The Hideaway is comfortably furnished with some touches of Adirondack Style. It has a complete new kitchen and fireplace as of 2015, is immaculate, and is cared for with the true attention to detail that makes it a comfortable haven. New master bath with heated floor as of 12/16. Whether you’re coming to ski, ride, swim, hike, bike, or run, …you can do it all from Harbor Hideaway! Skiers, we are 10 miles from Whiteface Mountain. Apres ski, you can enjoy all the wonderful nightlife Lake Placid has to offer. If you’re coming to take in the beauty of the Adirondacks, you can enjoy a fabulous vista from your very own private balcony, overlooking Lake Placid. Or you can put your kayak in at sandy beach at water's edge in the back yard! If you like to hike, you are minutes away from trails everywhere. If you love to shop or want to visit a spa, just walk around the end of Mirror Lake! The Hideaway is a 'Best Kept Secret' and is a place you can make your home and return to when you return to Lake Placid. It's 800 steps to The Cottage, a great restaurant on Mirror Lake.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Joe & Laura have been coming to Lake Placid for twenty years. Seven years ago, they bought a wonderful time share in Lake Placid so that they could come up for two weeks during fall foliage season each year. (By the way, their waterfront townhouse is for sale, two consecutive weeks during peak foliage season in late Sept/early Oct if you're interested... It is a piece of heaven with spectacular full views of Mirror Lake.) But with each passing year, they wanted to stay longer than just those two weeks. During their fall trip in 2014, they made the decision to buy Harbor Hideaway after climbing to the top of Rooster Comb Mountain in October 2014. They were blessed with the sight of a vivid rainbow there, which they took to be a sign that they should make a second home in Lake Placid. And so, here we are! We purchased our Lake Placid home December 5, 2014 and began immediate updates. A brand new fireplace with green granite hearth and mantel was completed in January. An upscale master bath vanity with a granite top came next. And a complete new kitchen was finished in May. We are hoping to share our new home with ten to twelve renters each year who will appreciate and enjoy it as we do.

Why the Owner Chose Lake Placid, NY, USA:
Joe and Laura believe that life is too short to live without a water view. On their annual visits to Lake Placid, they walk the Olympic Sidewalk around Mirror Lake almost every day that they don't take a hike. It was on these daily walks that they first saw Harbor Lane and came to appreciate it's uniquely wonderful location and views. It is just steps off that beloved Olympic sidewalk around Mirror Lake! They treasure the privacy, the quiet, the views, the water in combination with the closeness to the things they love to do in the village. It's also a great reason to go to The Cottage restaurant any time!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
How can you beat a waterfront property on Lake Placid which is also just steps from Mirror Lake in the Village of Lake Placid and all it has to offer? We love being close to nature, yet with privacy...while being able to go to the Center for the Arts, Olympic Venues, shops and restaurants. They are yours to enjoy right here: the comfort, quality and genuine hospitality of Harbor Hideaway on Lake Placid!
