Car: Recommended

Lets Getaway Rental, ADK is in a very peaceful setting, but we are a 5 minute walk to the center of Downtown Lake Placid. 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.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Lake Placid, NY, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
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.
