About Julie

We are sharing our Adirondack home with you while we live out our professional and recreational (hiking, biking and skiing) dreams in the Colorado Rockies -- from one paradise to another. Enjoy!

Julie purchased this house in 2002

Why Julie chose Adirondack Mountains

Staying at our house, you can experience life in the Adirondacks without the crowds and if you want to go into town and be a part of all the happenings, you are just a five minute drive or a bike ride away. Lake Placid has great restaurants, amazing views and unlimited recreational activities. Then come home and relax on the screened porch while waiting for your dinner to cook on the grill. :)

What makes this house unique

We built our beautiful timber frame home and put a lot of love into every detail. We even have an authentic Adirondack lean-to and fire pit for a campfire under the stars -- don't forget the marshmallows!

Escape the TV and outside world but if you want to check in, there is wireless internet.

Great spot!

  • 5 of 5

This house is convenient to town and trails, yet feels secluded. Mountain views from upstairs master bedroom and large yard. Also loved the meantime and fire pit. Comfortable and well equipped and the owner was lovely to deal with. We would rent here again.

Top notch place in Lake Placid

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here in August and could not have been happier. Beautiful, clean home with great space, wonderful architecture, private land, and so many things to do in the home and on the property. We enjoyed an outdoor fire every night and utilized the air hockey and pool table during rainy times. The owners couldn't have been any nicer to us and the planning went very smooth because of that. I can't wait to stay here again next year.

Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at this property. Description was completely accurate. House was clean, well-maintained and located in a quiet, private area that was still convenient to all that Lake Placid has to offer. We were in town for the horse show, and the location could not be more perfect. Owners were extremely helpful and accommodated some of our last-minute changes. Overall, a great experience and would definitely stay here again.

House was beautiful inside. Property was great. Very nice Lean to with fire pit. Secluded yet near Lake Placid's downtown. Kitchen was lacking for cooking tools and the ones provided were not very good. Sleeping arrangements were good. Nice quiet neighborhood. Basement had no furniture and was musty. They had a minature air hockey/ pool table. Kids really didn't use. No cable, only DVD so come prepared.
