Allplay, an early 1960s cottage, is beautifully situated on nearly 1.5 acres of landscaped grounds where views of the Sentinel Range peek through the trees. The house has been lovingly furnished in a combination of classic Danish modern and quality rustic pieces, with hardwood floors and beautiful rugs throughout. Its quiet but convenient location and charming interior make Allplay a unique and cherished retreat. Built by well-known New York architect Ronald Allwork for his own family, the house is located at the base of Cobble Hill, about a 1.5 mile walk into the center of Lake Placid village.
Allplay features 3 bedrooms (2 with queen, 1 with bunk beds), 2 full baths (1 with whirlpool tub), den with flat-panel TV (with cable service) and DVD player, living room with fireplace, and dining room. There is a high-speed internet connection with wi-fi hub. The kitchen is fully equipped (we love to cook), and a clothes washer and dryer are located in the basement.
Avid hikers and cross-country skiers, we fell in love with the High Peaks of the Adirondacks more than 20 years ago. We live in Center City Philadelphia in our 'real' lives. Judy owns a consulting and software company that works with employee-owned (ESOP) companies. Al, a management consultant and strategic planner, is semi-retired. We try to get to Lake Placid as often as we can!
The Owner purchased this cottage in 2007
We love the High Peaks of the Adirondacks, and we found ourselves returning there frequently, even though we love to travel to new places. Lake Placid offers access to the High Peaks trails and wilderness, while providing lots of other activities to entertain us.
Allplay is our dream house - cozy, elegant and peaceful. We fell in love with it the minute we walked in the door. It feels like an oasis with its big trees and sweeping front lawn. (There are awesome mountain views behind the trees, but the trees are so tall now that you can barely see the mountains.) It's walking distance to the village but away from the hustle and bustle.
We've furnished it with a combination of Danish modern and handcrafted rustic pieces, and we just love being there. We can hike or snowshoe up Cobble Hill, right across the street, or we can easily get to Adirondack Loj, Mt. Van Hoevenberg, or Whiteface, all within a 10 to 15 minute drive.
One of the things we really like about the house is that the TV is in the den, and the fireplace is in the living room - so Judy can sit by the fire and read while Al watches old movies. We also enjoy gathering food at the local farmers markets and cooking at leisure - the kitchen is fully equipped with good knives, good pots and pans, etc., so cooking is a pleasure.
We had a fantastic stay at the All-Play Cottage. The house was clean, meticulously decorated, the interior and exterior was also well maintained. I was very impressed with Judy and her lovely home. We could tell how much she cared for it. The amenities provided everything we needed for our stay and it was very close to the town of Lake Placid and Saranac. We have been coming up to Placid and Saranac for the past 13 years. My husband, son and I agreed this was one of the best trips we've had. Hopefully we will be able to rent this home next summer = )
My family spent New Year's week at this beautiful home. It was spotless, comfortable, fully stocked, close to town and was just a perfect getaway for us. We really enjoyed ourselves and couldn't have asked for more. Town is very close and Whiteface Mt. is about 15 minutes away. Judy is a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend this property!
My family and I were able to enjoy a successful Ironman week in this cozy home. We loved the location as it was quiet and far from the hustle and bustle of town, yet close enough to enjoy all that LP has to offer. It was exceptionally clean and the two bathrooms were a huge plus. Whether you want to relax watching a movie in the T.V. room or reading a book in the living room next to the fire place, you'll love this house. I would highly recommend it!
Our ladies weekend at Lake Placid was spectacular! Judy’s cottage is simply beautiful and the pictures on this site don’t do it justice. We were a group of 5 women looking for a relaxing girl’s weekend getaway, and we found it. Judy, from the first email was professional, responsive and accommodating. Her cottage (maybe it should be called a palace?) was beautiful, very clean, comfortable, and much more spacious then the pictures allude too. The cottage was beautifully decorated with hand-made furniture pieces throughout the entire cottage. The kitchen was well equipped with most cooking utensils, and the dining area is a perfect space for a nice dinner. It was a $6 cab ride to Main Street, and nicely tucked away from all the hustle and bustle of the busy town. We would strongly recommend this charming cottage as a relaxing getaway in Lake Placid.
We had a very lovely stay for five nights at this house. The pictures do not do it justice. The interior is immaculate and has very high end furnishings. A truly beautiful house. Judy the owner was a delight to work with and very helpful for us.
My husband and I fell in love with this place. We frequently travel to Lake Placid to train on the Ironman course and we have stayed all over the town - this was by far our favourite. Perfectly located - the cottage is on the edge of the town of Lake Placid and just a short distance to the infamous "Bear" climbs on the Ironman bike course (most notably "Papa Bear"). It is about 2 kilometers/1.2 miles to Mirror Lake and downtown Lake Placid. The cottage is nestled among beautiful trees making it a very private location. The interior is very spacious, with essentially two living spaces, designed with the most unique modern yet rustic/chic furniture and decor. Two full bathrooms, at opposite ends of the cottage, is a great feature. The whole cottage has tons of natural light - beautiful full windows in each room of the entire cottage (with blinds). There is more than enough space for storage of equipment (hiking, skiing, snowshoeing, bikes, strollers, etc) - the main level has plenty - but if that's not enough, the entire size of the cottage is empty basement storage space beneath (clean and not musty). Ironman access was simple, easy and peacefully away from the craziness of the main street. There was ample parking for 3 cars. Judy was a pleasure to deal with and we would absolutely book this cottage again for Ironman, for training weekends or for even a real vacation!
