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 Adirondack Mountains

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.

Convenience and ambience - perfect pet friendly townhome close to town

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at John's townhome over MLK weekend with our dogs and another couple. The condo was perfectly laid out and well maintained and we thoroughly enjoyed the convenience of having condiments, paper / plastic products, firewood and even coffee beans and welcome treats available to us--which was especially convenient for a short stay. We also enjoyed that it was short (5-10 minute) walk to center of Main Street. Also very close to Crown Plaza resort, which has lobby bar with great views of Mirror Lake and Whiteface. John was very accommodating and ensured we had a great experience at his rental--we'll certainly be back soon!

Excellent 5 star property

  • 5 of 5

We had an opportunity to stay at John and his wife's property once again this fall in Lake Placid. The community and it's views and simply breath taking. The property is nestle in a wooded cul-de-sac. It is in pristine condition with adequate space and a beautiful back deck that over looks the woods. It is clean and very well appointed with ALL the amenities of home and walking distance to main street and Mirror Lake. We look forward to staying at their property again next fall. The host's are wonderful people to rent from, and will make your stay a totally enjoyable one.

A beautiful get away with girlfriends.

The condo was absolutely stunning. Everything was there for you. Clean quiet, right in the middle of nature. A walk into the town was a 3 minute walk. Location is perfect! Fantastic restaurants.

I would reccommend this unit to anyone!
