Overview

Lake Placid House Rental Photos and Description

Home, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

PLACIDMERE LODGE

This Lake Placid home, built in 2004, is located only two miles from the village of Lake Placid, NY, but it is surrounded by hundreds of acres of 'forever wild' forest and is located directly on the Chubb River. You can canoe or fish the Chubb from two supplied open-kayak style canoes or simply enjoy the serenity and beauty of the river, forest and mountains after a bustling day sightseeing, on one of the nearby lakes, or in the village. The lodge sleeps 8 people very comfortably.

The great room overlooks the wilderness and the Chubb River, and has a wonderful fireplace. Also on the ground floor are a second master bedroom with queen size bed, with a full bathroom that is shared with the great room and downstairs guests, a large designer kitchen with eat-in area and a fireplace of its own, and a beautiful screened-in porch for gatherings and morning coffee The front porch runs the entire length of the house overlooking the river.

The second floor features a loft with two sets of double-bed bunk beds, sleeping four. The master bedroom, also upstairs, features a queen size bed and a screen porch overlooking the river and mountains beyond. The master bathroom, with a whirlpool tub, is shared with the loft.

In the finished basement are a full-size pool table, table games and a wall-mounted 46' flat screen television with cable, a Blu-ray player and a Nintendo Wii. High-speed wireless internet access is provided in the property. Powered speakers that may be plugged into your computer or iPod are located in the great room. There is also a detached one-car garage only a few feet from the cabin.

This is a fabulous getaway for someone who loves the outdoors and likes having a peaceful environment, yet it is only eight minutes to the village of Lake Placid. Great snowshoeing and cross-country skiing in the winter and hiking in the summer. Enjoy the best of both worlds in a true Adirondack setting.

PLEASE NOTE: We have never asked our guests for a 'review' but recently we added some comments from our guestbook . In our guests' own words, these can be found by clicking the 'Owner Info' tab and scrolling to the bottom that section.

About The Owner

I'm a native of Lake Placid and my family still lives there. I built the cabin in 2004 on land located along the Chubb that has been in my family since the 50's. I now live in Texas with my children but we make it back 'home' several times a year!' There is something very special about Placidmere Lodge. Home to both the the 1980 AND the 1932 Winter Olympics, Lake Placid offers skiing, skating and snowshoeing in the winter, and mountain climbing, hiking, canoeing, fishing -- basically it's a paradise for outdoor activities.

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

Guestbook comments from the owner

We cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed staying here. The Lodge is stunning and all of the special characteristics – the dual fireplaces, the bunk beds, the expansive, airy view and the VIEW – did I mention the view? - made our 4 days so relaxing. To be able to bring our two Labs as well made for a real family trip. Thank you so much – we can’t wait to come back!

(Owner note: and they have been back five times!)

Inviting, family friendly, beautiful, pleasant, laid back and unpretentious!

  • 5 of 5
If Placidmere was a person and not a place we would describe its personality as: inviting, family friendly, beautiful, pleasant, laid back and unpretentious! From the moment we entered through the front door, we felt at home. The location and setting was perfect…a winter wonderland! We enjoyed skiing, skating, snowmobiling and more. Had some amazing meals and craft beers. As our time here comes to an end, our wonderful memories will last forever. Thank you for sharing this incredible place with us.

Our family (2 adults, 2 kids, age 11 & 8) looooved this house. We did a lot of relaxing & reading & playing games. We brought outdoor movie equipment and the back yard was the perfect spot to set up. We watched videos of when we were all young and a movie. We enjoyed your screened-in porches and big kitchen. Most of all, we enjoyed the back porch. Great for lingering over a coffee and a good book. We are dreaming about being here in the winter now! Thanks for making it a great home!

What a great place you have here!
We love the setting in the woods – very peaceful! Can't imagine coming to Lake Placid and staying in town now!
We enjoyed shopping, ice skating, tobogganing, and eating at some really good restaurants. It was always nice to come back here to unwind at night! Hope to come back again in the future! (with friends next time!)

Perfect place to come and relax

This is our 2nd time back & it was just as wonderful as we remembered! Loved the XC skiing at Cascade and snowshoed on the property. This is the perfect place to come and relax with friends and family. Dogs love it too!"
