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.

                                                              My wife and I spent 2 nights there on 2/23/18 and 2/24/18 and we really enjoyed our stay. Would happily return. The owner John was a pleasure to deal with and he made access arrangements very easy. The town house was very clean and really well appointed. Great furnishing and kitchen and bathrooms clean and well stocked. Thank you John!

                                                              Our family decided to visit Lake Placid this year over Feb. vacation to channel our inner olympians. We had a great stay in this fantastic condo, which is so close to downtown. I love to walk to town, that is the ultimate perk for a vacation rental. We saw all the Olympic venues and got a beautiful ski day at Whiteface. The condo has everything you need, in fact I need to step up my dish-ware at home to keep up. My husband is a carpenter and thought the new kitchen was top notch. The beds and linens were very comfortable, the showers worked great, the TV was awesome (we needed to watch the Olympics) and first run movies on DVD too. This condo was like home but way better!

                                                              WOW...JUST WOW

                                                              Took the family to Lake Placid for 4 days and stayed here and it was perfect! John was amazing! He was very accommodating answered every question we had and made sure the place was spotless for us. We slept 6 (2 adults and 4 kids) very comfortably. The kitchen had everything we needed and the living room was the perfect size for us. We made a fire each night with the wood provided and just enjoyed each day with no worries. I would definitely go back and would highly recommend Johns place for anyone going to LP.

                                                              Home away from home

                                                              Our second great stay at this cozy, convenient and exceptionally clean getaway. John is great to work with, and the little extras are much appreciated. Easy to get to downtown, yet very quiet and private. Excellent snow removal in the development. Thank you!

                                                              Lovely Townhouse, Lovely Owner

                                                              This Knoll Way Townhouse ("KWT") is located a few blocks away from the Crowne Plaza, and has everything you could want for a family of 5 in terms of comfort and functionality. There is a fully-stocked kitchen, working fireplace with lots of firewood, a wide-variety of DVDs, great board games, 2.5 bathrooms, a large eat-in kitchen, etc.. Everything is new. To state the home is well-provisioned is an understatement - the owner provides many food basics like coffee, juice, condiments and, even, David's cookies that he encourages you to put in the oven as a treat. Everything is easy to use in the house - each room has its own climate control; John sends you a "tv guide" with clear instruction how to use tv, dvd, WII, apple tv, etc. The bedrooms are nicely proportioned and each has its own bathroom; there is a 1/2 bath off of kitchen downstairs. The laundry is really convenient as well -- on the second floor between the two bedrooms. It is easy to access KWT from the driveway which makes unloading and loading the car easy. This is our 5th vrbo stay in Lake Placid over as many years, and, without a doubt, KWT was tops in terms of comfort, ease of living and usability.

Land is next to the Jack Rabbit Ski Trail (30 miles of cross country skiing). If you love the outdoors and want to experience the Olympic activities of Lake Placid, this is an ideal spot.
