GREAT BASE LOCATION FOR HIKING, BIKING, FISHING, SITESEEING & FAMILY REUNIONS

Lake Placid House Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 2 full and 1 half bath, sleeps 10

Base lLocation for Bike, Hike, Fish & Reunion House is 17 miles from Lake Placid in the quiet Hamlet of Jay, NY.

This house was my grandmother's & has all the charm of a 50s & 60s with a few upgrades from the 80s & 90s. The house has 2,100 sf of space & is modestly decorated. It's a great place to gather with friends & family!

The house has beds to sleep 10 & room for more. The MBR is located on the 1st floor with a private full bath. The rest of the bedrooms & another full bath are on the 2nd floor.

The house has cable TV, WiFi & a dishwasher in a very homey & roomy house. The house is fully furnished including plates, utensils, pots & pans in a full kitchen.

This is a great location to access Whiteface, the Olympic Mountain. The house can also be a great hiking/biking base & offers easy access to the High Peaks for all the outdoor activities the Adirondacks offers. It is close to the quaint shops and activities that Lake Placid has to offer without having to pay the higher rental rates.

The house is located directly adjacent to the Ward Lumber store and warehouses.

Please Note! Our calendar is ALWAYS up to date. We are very active in renting our properties and keep our calendars current at all times. Hope we can add your reservation to our calendar soon!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thanks very much for your prompt and thorough handling of pre-arrival arrangements. Our family had a nice, relaxed time in your home. We look forward to coming back again. Thanks! Lovely countryside. Enjoyed the pleasant drives to AuSable, Wilimington, Keene and Lake Placid. Whiteface Mountain is a "must see" for everyone. We enjoyed picnics by the river at several places. We were looking for nature, peace and quiet - and found an abundance of it every where we went! Thanks; this was a most pleasant and enjoyable stay and vacation.

It was a blast

  • 5 of 5
This was the first time we tried staying in a vacation home and I am glad we did. An awesome place for families to stay and have loads of fun. Kids and Adults had lot of fun playing in Pool table, Air Hockey table and Foosball table. All Lake Placid attractions are close by. The house has all amenities that a family (including kids) would require. We were surprised that there were some toys, board games as well that was available for us to play.

1. Booking process was so easy. We had clarifications before making the reservation and Kim Coolidge was very helpful and prompt in her responses.
2. After the payment was made, we received all the required information in terms of getting the house keys, directions, attractions, local stores.
3. The house was clean, more than ample number of Bath Towels, Comforters and Bedsheets were available.
4. House as three window A/C units. 1 – Dining room, 1 each in 2 Bed rooms. All other rooms have fan. There are also portable fans available in Living room.
5. House has ample parking space. Garage has space for parking for 2 Intermediate size cars. We had parked 2 vans and 1 SUV on the drive way.
This place is a definite for family reunions. I would recommend this place any time and would definitely love to visit again.

Spacious house - Great value

  • 4 of 5
I rented this house 3 times in fall and intend to continue doing so. Location is perfect for hiking and cycling fans. House is old but clean and well maintained. We appreciate very much the dining room with huge table. Perfect to wine and dine after exercising all day.

Owner definitively wants you to enjoy your stay. Kim is prompt and attentive should you report anything broken or ineffective in house. Kitchen is well equipped. Towels are provided sufficiently.

For summer time I would recommend their second house a mile away (vrbo/370599). Smaller but equipped with BBQ and nice place for nights out by the fire.

Great value! The price is half of what you would pay in Lake Placid. So if your expectations are accordingly, You should enjoy a warm and cozy stay.

Owner's Response: Michel,
Thank you very much for your review and for your return visits. Since the house is older, I work very hard to be sure you are comfortable, the house is clean and you enjoy your time in the Adirondacks!
Both houses have a large dining table in order to accommodate the large groups. It's always more fun to eat together.
This house HomeAway #345475 or VRBO #370599 has a pool/air hockey table as well as a Foosball table.
The other house HomeAway #285560 or VRBO #370598 has an enclosed porch and a fire pit.
I look forward to seeing you again next year!
Safe travels! Kim

Very comfy, warm, and spacious!

  • 5 of 5
My group of 10 stayed there during Memorial day weekend for hiking Mt. Marcy, the house was clean and very comfortable.
There are all appliance we need and cups, plates..etc more than enough for everyone.
No one can beat the price for 5 bedroom with lots of bed and the beds are in good condition.
We didn't have to bring our sheets!
Some might complain everything is kind of old, but we found it gives us very warm inviting feeling.
Having a game room was extra plus for having fun!!
Everyone in my group loved the house and definitely want to come back for our next hiking in Adirondack area.
I really appreciate Kim for prompt response and cares.
Thank you!

Owner's Response: Judy,
Thank you for taking the time to let others know what you thought about the house.
I know that you could come back for years and not run out of places to hike and things to do. The game room, the organ and the piano are just extra bonuses for when the weather may keep you inside.
Thank you for choosing to stay in my house. I appreciate your comments and look forward to seeing you again!

Awesome vacation in the Adirondacks!

  • 4 of 5
This house was the PERFECT choice for our family vacation in the Adirondacks. Lots of room for my kids & grandkids in this spacious home. The house was very clean and charming and we had all the comforts of home during our week's stay. The fully stacked kitchen and large dining room table were perfect for preparing and eating dinner after each day's activities. We even had an extra table set up with a 1,000 piece puzzle, which the kids enjoyed working on during our stay. Our teenage grandchildren enjoyed playing pool, air hockey and fusball with each other, and we enjoyed watching several movies on the DVD player. (Best to bring your own favorite DVDs to watch).

It was a nice perk to have a washer & dryer available during our stay, especially for wet bathing suits & towels that we used one day and needed the next day too.

The location was central for our day trips to Lake Placid for shopping and the beach, Whiteface Mountain, Ausable Chasm, Natural Stone Bridge & Caves, Fort Ticonderoga and White Water Rafting on the Casendaga River.

The property manager Kim was a real doll and great at answering all our questions, and providing info and directions to local sites and area stores. She even found us a great little hidden park a few miles away where we could swim, picnic and have a campfire - we roasted marshmallows and made S'mores with the kids - yummy!

Everyone agreed this was our best vacation ever! We would definitely recommend this home for any family who wants to see the beautiful Adirondack area, and save money on costly hotels/motels. It's ideal for a large family. Our kids and grandkids called it home for the week - and it was just like our own home, only lots more room!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. You did an awesome job highlighting the trip. There is so much to do and see in this area! This property is definitely spacious. It's close enough to all the activities, yet it's more affordable. Most guests that stay at my house are happier spending money on the activities than on their accommodations!
I am extremely happy that your family had so much fun. It appears that you packed a lot of activities in while you were here. There's more to do, so I hope you can return soon!

The White House is located on Glen Road in the Hamlet of Jay, NY, just 17 miles from Lake Placid. The house is a great base location for many activities. Swim near the Jay Covered Bridge, in Wilmington or in Lake Placid. You can shop in quaint stores in Lake Placid. There is also a wonderful craft store offering the talents of local artists and a unique Alpaca Shoppe in Jay. The Olympic Center, Whiteface Mountain (great view especially in the good weather) and Santa's Village at the North Pole (just 10 minutes away) and the Au Sable Chasm are must-see sites. Biking, canoeing, kayaking, skiing, ski jumps, horseback riding, concerts in the park and, local theaters are just some of your entertainment options. Hikers come back year after year to visit the many mountainous trails. Lake George's Million Dollar Beach, Six Flags & a Water Park are just a day trip away. Canada is also just a day trip from here. There is a lot to do and see - rain or shine!
