About John Rudick

We are two busy professionals out of Saratoga, NY and Brooklyn NY. Heather splits her time from directing a fashion company in NYC to spending time upstate with her husband, John, at their primary home in Malta, NY. John runs a successful fundraising company, ACCEL Sports Fundraising, out of Malta to provide much needed programs for raising money in Youth Sports, High School Sports and Class Trips. Both of us met in 1990 through running in high school. Our love for outdoor activities and nature has helped our relationship grow even stronger throughout the years. Lake Placid is a natural extension of who we are and why we want to spend time up there. The friendly people and vast array of outdoor activities will keep us active and relaxed during our time off for many years to come.

John Rudick purchased this townhome in 2014

Why John Rudick chose Lake Placid

This property is a beautiful extension of who we are. Heather is in design and loves the outdoors. John is at home being in the woods building trails that people enjoy using for mountain biking and such. Our property sits on 7 acres of land surrounded by trees and on the Jack Rabbit Ski Trail. We love the privacy, yet we also enjoy the energy of Lake Placid. Being so close to downtown and restaurants is such a bonus for us. We rarely use our car when we are visiting.

What makes this townhome unique

The privacy and location to town are hard to beat! Blissful quiet sleeping, yet a vibrant town a short walk away. Views of mountains all around you when walking around town, which is such a short walk... even on a cold day. Walking to the arena to see a hockey game or an event is a .3 mile walk. Getting to the beach is easy and jumping on the ski shuttle to Whiteface is 2 blocks away.

Fabulous winter getaway!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked in the door, we felt welcome and we knew we had chosen well. Beautifully decorated and immaculately clean, this town home afforded us comfortable surroundings and a well-stocked kitchen. We so appreciated all of the personal touches.

Although we did not have the chance to use the fireplace, we could envision a cozy fire on a cold snowy evening. John, the owner, was so helpful. He made sure that we had everything we needed , even arranging sanding of the icy hill.

If we return to Lake Placid, we would not hesitate to stay at this town home, and we recommend it without reservations.

Wonderful stay at Let's Getaway rental!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Lake Placid with our toddler son and couldn't have better things to say about our accommodations! The kitchen was stocked with everything and more - delicious pretzels, condiments, drinks, coffee, and even breakfast foods! The bedrooms and bathrooms were fully equipped with blankets, towels, and shampoos! It is so peaceful and serene yet a short walk to town and Mirror Lake. He provides many brochures and guides for dining and activity suggestions, which was very helpful. Thank you for a relaxing, memorable stay!!

Beautiful and comfortable property very close to town

  • 5 of 5

The condo is immaculate and decorated in a great Adirondack theme. The kid loved the bunk bed, and we appreciated all of the amenities provided. The location is perfect- quiet but a short walk into the main shopping and dining parts of downtown.

The Olympic sites and activities made for a very memorable family trip.

WOW! This place is just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The Getaway in Lake Placid is just perfect in so many respects. The owners are amazing and they do everything they can to be your concierge. They treat the home like a B&B and leave behind enough food for a small breakfast, coffee, condiments, tea, Milk, etc. Really makes the stay relaxing knowing that the essentials are covered when you show up. Also, EVERYTHING you need to feel at home is here... Linens, soap, detergent, extra bedding, comforters, firewood, games, videos (Massive DVD collection of up to date movies), etc. This place is STOCKED!

Best part is the location. You are in town and walking distance to everything, but the home is on a QUIET large piece of land and allows for you to feel like you are in the woods and mountains but a short walk to everything.

Finally, the house is meticulously maintained. Not a detail is missed! Show up, open the fridge and find an extra beer or two left for you, relax and enjoy!
