About the property

We're proud to offer our beautifully restored historic home in the center of Lake Placid. We're a short walk to the shops, Olympic oval and beach. Relax on the front porch and watch Lake Placid life unfold. We're located along the bike AND run of the Ironman course! We've hosted Olympians, Ironman Champions, Skiers, Hikers, and hundreds of wonderful families. We strive to be Lake Placid's best value house rental!


Our house has 5 bedrooms and 4.5 baths:

Marcy Room: Queen bed, private bath, private balcony

Phelps Room: 2 twin beds, private bath

Skylight Room: Queen bed, private bath, early morning sun

Cascade & Porter Rooms: These two rooms occupy a whole corner of the house. They connect via a doorway, and share a full bath. Perfect for a family. Each room has 2 twin beds.

The downstairs consists of a large kitchen with granite island, dining room for 10 people, and living room with TV. There is a half bath near the kitchen. WiFi is available. Guests staying more than 4 nights have access to clothes washer/dryer.

We're located right on the main drag of Lake Placid. Across the street is our favorite restaurant, Lisa Gs. Behind this is a playground and access to the Chubb River for boating and fishing. Most importantly, we're perfectly located between all three of Placid's breweries!

Private off-street parking for 4 cars is available behind the house.

Please note: Attached to the back of the house are 2 studio apartments used as long-term rentals, caretaker quarters, or for our family. They are separate from vacation rental house, but the parking lot is shared.

No Smoking. No Pets. No large parties.

About Colin

Many years ago, we lived in this house for several full summers while my parents were doing renovations. Now we enjoy bringing our young girls here for a week every summer. We've travelled to 55 countries on 6 continents when we were younger, and we hope our travel experience helps us provide our guests with an exceptional stay in Lake Placid.

Colin purchased this house in 2016

Why Colin chose Lake Placid

For almost 20 years I watched my parents completely remodel this 1890s home. The home has great character and a great location for walking around Lake Placid. When my parents decided it was time to part with the house, I knew I wanted to keep it in the family as a vacation rental for many to enjoy. So here we are, owners of The Mill Hill House.

We especially enjoy watching Placid life unfold from the large front porch.

What makes this house unique

Conveniently located a short walk to the beach, oval, and shops. Perfectly situated between all 3 of Placid's breweries. And we're on the Whiteface side of town for a quick commute to the slopes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our group enjoyed our visit at The Mill Hill House. The location was better than we expected, and we were able to walk to dinner and to all the unique little shops and sites in the downtown area. The house had plenty of room to accommodate our group. Thank you for sharing your vacation home with us!

The Mill Hill House was wonderful! Much better than the photos depicted it!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this property. It was clean, well maintained and had all the amenities our varied group needed. The location was ideal with easy access for the teenagers to walk to town, ample off street parking and very convenient for the short drive to the lacrosse tournament fields. The kitchen was spacious and up to date with very nice appliances - and well stocked with all the little things we needed for cooking and dining. The owner, Colin, was helpful throughout both the rental process and our stay, always responding quickly and courteously. We recommend Mill Hill House very highly and hope to return next year, if not sooner!

We really enjoyed our time at the Mill House! It was clean, well furnished and well stocked with needed supplies! Kitchen had all needed pots and pans! Loved that it was so close to town, but we were still able to get a good walk in! We discovered Lisa G’s! Very nice restaurant!
