Great stay for family and friends

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly what we needed for a long weekend away. It's a short walk to the beach at Mirror Lake and the town which was great given how difficult parking can be to find in the town itself. The house itself was exactly as described and worked out perfectly for the 5 of us plus my 14-month old who we were able to get into a pack and play in one of the bedrooms. The location was great (it's literally right on the bike course, behind the school for any ironman athletes) and, as I mentioned, close to town and shops. Denise was always very quick to reply during the booking process and when we had any questions during our stay. Would definitely stay here again on a future trip.

Wonderful Old Home

  • 5 of 5

A warm, wonderful older home that has had a lot of work/upgrades and caring. It is one block off of Main Street and we had a blast at all of the Winter Games and local events. Many we were able to walk and leave the car. Denise & Gary made sure everything you need is on hand and they respond very quickly if there are any questions.

We will be back over the summer.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time at the house. It was well set up for our needs. As a group of friends on a ski trip, we found travel to Whiteface very easy, while having the downtown area within comfortable walking distance.

I'm sure we will be back.

Great house and great location!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our sons ice hockey tournament. Our two families fit perfectly. The house is well kept and right behind the oval and hockey rinks! Denise was very accommodating and available before and during our stay. We would definitely stay here again for a Lake Placid trip! Thank you!

Cozy and clean house perfectly located for events at the Olympic arena

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed my stay at this house in Lake Placid. My group was there to attend Skate America, and loved that it was a short walk to the arena. Because it was so close, we were able to get back to the house for meals during the breaks between sessions, which in a couple cases were less than an hour.

The house was very clean and cozy, the beds were comfortable, and they each had warm comforters to snuggle under. Perfect for the cold winter nights in Lake Placid. The bathrooms were stocked with plenty of towels, and the kitchen was well stocked with dishes, pots and pans and utensils.

My entire group loved the spacious downstairs shower, which had a rain shower head. And the bathroom stayed nice and warm--no stepping out of a warm shower into a cold room!

The owner was very quick to respond to any questions or concerns we had, and it was obvious that she wanted to make sure we enjoyed our stay. There were three of us in our group, and we give this house 6 thumbs up!

There was plenty of comfortable seating in the living room, and a nice TV, although we never even turned it on.

Owner's Response: Cheryl and her guest are exactly the kind of guest that home owners wants. Great communication and the house was in perfect condition. We were so appreciative of the fact, that when they got there it had just snowed and they took out the shovel and started shoveling. Perfect guest would highly recommend.
