Featuring 270 degree views of Lake Placid and the surrounding mountains, The Point House is a magnificent new rental offering on the southernmost point of Moose Island on Lake Placid. This boat access only property faces South which means that it receives sunshine all day long.
The 1600 square foot main house has all the modern conveniences you would expect to find in a luxury residence including a gourmet kitchen, satellite television and gas grill. The wood paneled great room features a wall of windows facing the lake, a massive stone fireplace, and cedar log beams. There is a queen size 'Lofa-sofa' in the great room that converts to a very comfortable queen bed for extra sleeping space or just for stretching out in front of the fireplace. The beautiful master suite includes a stone fireplace, flat screen TV and attached bathroom with jacuzzi tub, two-person walk-in shower, and water view. The main house also features a wrap around deck overlooking the lake, with a covered area for enjoying the view, rain or shine.
Directly on the lakeshore is a lovingly restored 1880's skating cabin (considered the 4th bedroom) with hand-quarried granite fireplace, another queen size 'Lofa-sofa', a camp kitchen and small bathroom with a composting toilet and wash basin. There is no running water in the cabin.
The property offers a brand new boathouse with 4 boat slips (2 interior and 2 exterior) and an upper level sundeck. Other features of the property include a lakeside fire-pit and canoe.
Access to the mainland is via a dedicated boat slip and parking space at the Whiteface Club and Resort, where it is just a short walk up to the golf course, restaurants and tennis facilities. From there it is just a 5 minute drive to Main Street, Lake Placid, with its many eclectic shops and restaurants.
As The Point House is only accessible by boat, it offers privacy and the opportunity to really get away from it all. Spend a week in the Adirondack wilderness boating, fishing or just relaxing near the water while still enjoying all the comforts of home!
A motor boat is not included with the rental, but bring your own, or, rent one here in town.
