  • Beautiful home close to downtown Lake Placid

    "This home is great! It's walking distance from downtown Lake Placid and about 15 minutes from Whiteface. Very comfortable and the owner and caretaker are very responsive to the needs of their guests. We had a fantastic time here!"

  • Most relaxing vacation ever

    "From the moment we walked into the home, we knew we were in for a fantastic holiday week. The house was exactly as shown in the pictures. The rooms were spacious and the home immaculate. Through no fault of the owners whatsoever our dreams of a white Christmas were dashed by the unseasonably warm weather. That did not stop us from checking out neighboring towns (Utica, Lake Placid, Warrensburg), cooking some wonderful meals in the chef-style kitchen, grilling steaks (in December??), and relaxing with good books and wine. The surrounding area was beautiful, with great views of lakes and mountains. Although we did not need our snow shoes this time, we can't wait to go back and explore the trails! This was our first ever house rental, and First Lake Retreat sets a high bar for the future by having met every expectation we had!"

  • Fantastic for a Family Get-Away!

    "The house was exactly right for our one-week, ten-person family vacation. I'd absolutely recommend it to family and friends, and depending on the size of our group next year we will absolutely consider staying here again! Pros: - Tons to do within an hour's drive (Fort Ticonderoga, lakes/ponds/rivers galore, hiking, towns of Lake Placid/Bolton Landing/Lake George/Saratoga Springs, etc.) - On a "perfect" river with a little "beach"; slow relatively warm water good for limited swimming / quick dunks as well as canoeing/tubing (we put in at the property and ~ 5 hours later pulled out at County Home Bridge Rd a few miles downstream) - Huge, HUGE grassy backyard perfect for games - Fantastic porch for outdoor meals - Two car garage converted into two game rooms - Two kitchens (for us that was a plus because we used both refrigerators) - Secluded and private - Fire pit next to the river - Toys for toddlers (play house, kid pool, etc.) - Responsive owners/managers - Pet friendly - I'm sure I'm forgetting stuff - WiFi (which is really a good thing to have, since many of us, especially those with AT&T lacked cell service here...which I'm putting down as a PRO!!!) - Clean and well-maintained Cons - Property secluded, but can still hear highway when outdoors, even later at night (note: not a big issue outdoors, and not an issue at all when inside) - Found a few stray pieces of broken glass near fire pit - No outdoor location to put out trash"
