If you are looking for a private escape to enjoy all the outdoor recreation that the beautiful Adirondack Mountains and Lakes have to offer, but want the convenience of being in the heart of the historic Lake Placid village, you have found your match!
Highland Loj is the same great home, formally known as Stellarview with eighty 5 star reviews! Highland Loj is a unique home tucked away on a high hill overlooking the village of Lake Placid with filtered views of Whiteface Mountain and Mirror Lake. It has the feel of living in a tree house! Although very private, it is only a few minutes walk to Main St., which boasts many outstanding restaurants, shops, and a multi-theater movie house featuring first run movies. You will also enjoy Olympic History at your doorstep. For hockey fans and ice skaters, you are only two blocks from the 'Miracle on Ice' arena and four blocks from the ice rink where Eric Heiden won his gold!
In the winter, enjoy riding the bobsled, skiing the cross-country trails at the Olympic center on Mt. Van Hoevenberg, or skiing the Olympic downhill and Super G trails at Whiteface Mountain. In the summer, the Mirror Lake beach is only a short walk away; world-class hiking, rock climbing, fishing and other lake activities are nearby, as are world class guides and gear.
In addition to privacy, the mountain/lake view and having the best location for Lake Placid entertainment, Highland Loj is a lovely “home away from home” for your family and friends. As previous reviewers have said, it has great charm and a “WOW Factor”. The layout of the home provides the ability to be together in the large open cathedral ceiling great room, but also gives your family and friends their own space in the three floor layout of the bedrooms and bathrooms.
Adjoined to this large family area, the gourmet kitchen has a Wolf Range, Asko dishwasher, granite countertops and is fully equipped with cookware and dishware. On the main level, there are also two comfy window seats available to take in the views and a large deck to enjoy the outdoors. There is plenty of seating with a wood burning fireplace, flat screen TV, premier cable, blu-ray player, and high speed internet. A bedroom and en-suite bath completes this level with a king-sized bed and private deck.
You enter the home on the lower level, which has an attractive entryway for all your boots and jackets. There is a five-person bunk room adjoining another family room with another flat screen TV, premier cable, blu-ray player, Playstation 2 and Guitar Hero for kid and/or adult fun. In addition, there is a full bath with natural slate floor and shower, a game room with a foosball table, a laundry room and a deck with a 6 person hot tub to enjoy. The upper level provides two more bedrooms. The master bedroom boasts a king-size bed, en-suite tumbled marble and limestone bath, a private deck with mountain and lake views, and a sleeping loft. The second bedroom has an en-suite tumbled marble bath with a queen-size bed. You will find our mattresses and furnishing all more than comfortable. You can be sure that all bedding is sanitized on a regular basis.
The Adirondacks are, without a doubt, the premier mountain experience in the Northeast! Highland Loj provides the full package for this experience. You will not be disappointed!
