Lake Placid Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

House - 1930's Bungalow, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 4-6)

Cute, two-bedroom, one-bath, two-story bungalow sits on one-half acre, just up from Main Street in Keene. Situated in the heart of the Adirondack Mountain's high peaks, this home offers beautiful views of Cascade Mountain, and easy access to Lake Placid (11 miles), Whiteface Mountain (nine miles), Keene Valley (five miles), and all of the best hiking trails, fishing, horseback riding, canoeing, kayaking, and skiing (cross country and downhill) that you might be looking for! The house is furnished with all sorts of little 'getaway amenities' - from a queen-size futon on the outdoor screen porch (for an extra non-winter sleeping spot for two), a bonfire pit (for roasting marshmallows), a perennial garden (with fresh herbs for cooking)...the house has a well-stocked kitchen for any kind of cooking you would like to do, a spa-like bathroom for relaxing baths (in a claw-foot tub), a large TV (for movies), and a full-size washer and dryer (to keep you with fresh, dry clothing).

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets considered

About Owner

I first came to the Adirondacks for what was supposed to be a paddling/camping trip on Saranac Lake... it turned into a life-long addiction with Lake Placid and Keene (home of the High Peaks.) I began to live here full time until the middle of 2004, when a career opportunity back on the West Coast led me to turn it into a vacation rental. I run an international travel business these days - Global Soul Adventures ...and try to visit the Adirondacks as I can.

Owner purchased this bungalow in 2003

Why Owner chose Lake Placid

The Adirondack Mountains are an especially spectacular place. They offer some of the highest peaks in the Northeastern US, which are home to hundreds of trails, lakes and rivers that offer up all sorts of summer and winter activities. I fell in love with Keene, and its prime location for accessing all outdoor adventures that one seeks. Additionally, the energy that continues to reside in Lake Placid from past Winter Olympics, along with currently training Olympic athletes, will inspire just about anyone to join in on the fun around town. The bungalow itself was built in 1930 and retains so much of its original charm - a clawfoot tub, castiron sink, and original flooring / stairs are some of the most unique amenities. I chose to offer this space as a vacation rental for others who love to travel - I am personally a traveler, and my ultimate wish is that other travelers will have the opportunity to fall in love with this ultra-perfect 'base camp' while enjoying all sorts of activities around the region.

Perfect for us

  • 5 of 5
This cozy house was a perfect place for my (4-person) family. It is quite small, but had everything we needed for our stay. It is clean and well-equipped. The view is unbelievable--a church and the high peaks. It is right in the village of Keene, walking distance to some good restaurants and cafes. (Don't miss the ADK Cafe, a terrific new restaurant.) The house is perfectly located for hikers, nestled among the peaks, but also pretty close to Lake Placid. The owner is very friendly and responsive and the caretakers live up the hill from the house. I strongly recommend it for groups up to four people, and for larger groups that don't mind a serious squeeze.

Great get away

  • 4 of 5
We had a fantastic time. The bungalow is located in the heart of small town Keene on the main road, but set back far enough to not feel like you are going to get runover by tourists. You are close enough to head to Lake Placid daily if you choose or avoid the mainstream with easy access to numerous trails. The house is small, but perfectly adequate for up to 6 people. The porch is the perfect place to relax and read and the garage is quite handy for storing oversized item (bikes, skis, etc) We would return without hesitation.
