Our beautiful country guest house has a quiet rural setting but is a convenient 5 minute drive to all that Lake placid offers and 20 minutes to Whiteface mountain. It features mountain views, bright cheery rooms, a modern fully equipped kitchen, nice quality furnishings, comfortable beds, a gas parlor stove and much more. The home is stylishly Adirondack with post and beam construction with rustic bark trim. Bathrooms are brand new and nicely tiled. Outside on the deck is a hot tub. If it's a game you want to play, there is a large game room with pool table and Wii game station.
There's much to do nearby. Ski or hike out your door on the many trails that surround our property. You'll probably see deer in the evenings. Take your dog out for a run in the fields. Take a canoe trip up the Chubb River exploring for osprey, beaver and the occasional eagle. Check out our horses grazing in the pastures nearby or soak in the hot tub on the deck.
Lake Placid is one of my favorite places and this home is in the perfect location. With all the beautiful wilderness and scenery around it, it's still only 5 minutes from town. The pictures don't do it justice. It is the best rental we have ever had. Spacious and super clean. A big plus was our ability to bring our dogs. They had a great time frolicking in the snow. We enjoyed a daily pool tourney. The kitchen had everything you could need with room to prepare a complete meal. Ending the day in the hot tub with falling snow was wonderful. We would go back in a second and highly recommend the house and the owners.
My family has been coming to Lake Placid for 40+ years so I know the area well. I stayed here over Labor Day weekend 2014 for a family wedding. It was the perfect spot. We were a big group, two couples, grandma, a college-age cousin, and two tykes under 5. Plus two pugs! The house was very comfortable and well-equipped. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook and grill. The yard and swing-set were perfect for running the kids around and we loved the hot-tub and fire pit for the adults. The house is on a quiet street, but close enough to town to make trips to the store or the sights a breeze. There are several trail-heads down the road and we took the kids for a hike at Henry's Woods one day (only about 5 minutes from the house). Eileen and Bob, the owners, were easy to communicate with through-out the rental process and even helped us out when we arrived and had a question about the hot-tub. I'd highly recommend this spot!
We absolutely recommend this home during your vacation stay in Lake Placid. The house was super clean and organized, it is decorated so cozy, it's spacious, has a pool table and a hot tub! Just about a 10 minute drive to downtown but yet you also get gorgeous scenery around the house. It was a great rental experience, thank you!
Lake Placid is so beautiful in the summer. This house is away from it all but only a 5 minute drive to town. Perfect for dogs - on a quiet street and lots of land. The house was just as pictured, clean and peaceful. I am a picky renter so cleanliness and up-to-date amenities are very important to me.
There was a 100-mile hiking trail just down the road. We often grilled on the deck and enjoyed the view. The kitchen was great for preparing meals and socializing. There is also a pool table.
We had a great two weeks in this house - perfect if you want to eat at home a few nights during your visit and enjoy the quiet, crisp Lake Placid air.
This was a last-minute booking for a last-minute decision to ski-board over the weekend. Lake Placid had snow in the forecast so we decided to go. We had a choice of a bigger condo in the village or a 4-star hotel, but the photos of this house suggested this could be the more comfortable choice.
We did not go wrong! The house was pretty & cozy, the upstairs bedrooms and library most especially. Nicely furnished & decorated. The beds made for a restfull sleep after a day of skiing.
he bathrooms were new & clean. The kitchen was also new and clean --- but may benefit from a few more cooking utensils.
It was cold the first night, but we got used to the solar heating system the next 2 nights. The living area downstairs was a little tight, and not as inviting as the ambience upstairs. But the listing did say 1800 sqft and a house good for 8 max. (We were 6 in total.) So, there was truth to that. On the other hand, I think the big BEAR decor in the living room made the space look smaller and less appealing.
The downstairs bedroom has bunk beds. Non-kids have to be extra careful & mindful about the possibility of hitting their heads getting into or out of the upper bunk. Kids would probably love it, but the trade off is that the rest of the bedrooms suited for adults are on the second floor, meaning the kids are a floor away from their parents.
The house was clean, with just a couple or so "greasy" spots we noticed on the wood floors upstairs. A hair dryer would have been a nice addition to the 'amenities'.
Location was good, an easy drive to the restaurants & stores and to Whiteface Mountain.
We were very pleased with this rental; in fact it is one of
our best from cyberrentals. The owners were very nice to deal with, especially since this was a last-minute booking.
She even mailed so quickly a toiletry kit we left in one of the bathroom drawers.
Very good value for its rental rate! Very good choice for the long-weekend trip to lake Placid. We will definitely consider renting this house again and would recommend it
to friends/a group of 6 looking to rent.
