Our names are Dusan and Magda Janak, and we came to this country from the Czech Republic and Poland 22 years ago. We very much enjoy living here and we especially love the natural beauty this country has to offer. We live in Keene, New York. My husband and I take pleasure in all outdoor activities including hiking, kayaking and golfing in the summer and downhill and cross-country skiing in the winter. At vacation time we like to take backpacking trips and cross-country excursions on our motorcycle.

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

We love Lake Placid, and think it is a wonderful place for everyone; from people seeking the peaceful serenity of the Mountains to those looking for outdoor adventures. We used to come here every year to enjoy the views and beautiful hikes and lakes. We love the High Peaks Region with its gorgeous views and hiking challenges; in fact, we love Lake Placid so much that we decided to purchase this house so that we can come here and enjoy it more often.

This house has a very comfortable layout for a large party of people. It has two living rooms, a porch coming right out from the dining room and nice little fenced in yard where you can allow little children to play safely. An outdoor fireplace allows you to enjoy the outdoors during cooler nights or winter months; and maybe even roast some marshmallows. And…location, location, location! The house is so close to all of the Lake Placid attractions including the Olympic Arena and the public beach on Mirror Lake, not to mention restaurants, bars and stores; all of this within walking distance from the house

Memorial Day with the family

  • 5 of 5
3 generations for a great 3 day weekend. The weather was not great for a good portion of the trip and it hardly mattered because we were so comfortable in the house. Plenty of common space and plenty of space to escape to when you'd prefer to be alone.
The kids were entertained and loved that they had their own space to play, great fenced in yard, and the park next door was great. The proximity to the village is excellent!

Great space for a family reunion!

  • 5 of 5
We spent the week of Christmas celebrating with a family of 5 siblings and their children. We were a full house, but due to the layout of the house, we never felt crowded. There are 3 floors to offer quite when the younger crowd stayed up to play cards. There are two living rooms so everyone can grab a cozy seat and relax. When there was an issue with the hot tub, the owners responded right away! We had a great time ice skating and could walk right into town. It was right next to a park with a playground to! Great house, couldn't have asked for more! Nicely decorated as well.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5
This home had everything we could possibly need and more. We attended a wedding in Lake Placid and had the fabulous pleasure of staying in this home. Some family members have special diets and the fully equipped kitchen made life much easier. We were mufti-generational for this visit and the house is large enough and quiet enough that even Grandma and Grandpa slept well!. There are two family/living rooms complete with fireplaces. A hot tub that my family enjoyed. The towel warmer in the bathroom was a special treat. My only regret is that we didn't have time to stay longer! The Hosts are great with communication and are very helpful.

Perfect house for a weekend

  • 5 of 5
We greatly enjoyed our comfortable stay. The house was perfect and packed with everything we could need or want. The owners were easy to reach too. I would go back there any time. It was really a nice place and easy transaction.

Outstanding accommodations!

  • 5 of 5
We were in Lake Placid for a family reunion. This beautifully restored house can accommodate two or three families easily, without bumping elbows. The rooms were spacious, immaculately clean, and there was everything there you could possibly need for a week long holiday. Linens, towels, cleaning supplies, medicine kits, paper plates, cooking utensils galore. When we’ve stayed at other VRBO’s we’ve always found that we had to shop locally to get something for the unit that wasn’t there. That wasn’t the case with this rental, the owner’s had thought of every possible need, and had it there for us to use. They were even kind enough to leave a large cooler for us to use for the family cookout we hosted one night. Yet everything was stored away neatly, with no personal effects in drawers, cupboards or closets like you sometimes find at other VRBO’s, as though someone was still living there This home was immaculately pristine, yet tremendously comfortable. .

The bedrooms were spacious, several with TV’s, and blinds on every window allowed total darkness and privacy at night for ideal sleeping conditions. We slept so well on the king size mattress in the master bedroom that we had to find out what brand it was so we could get one of our own!

The location is ideal for walking downtown to get to all the shops, restaurants and attractions of Main Street. The neighborhood was quiet at night and the park next door was perfect for the younger children in our party.

The owners were easy to work with and prompt to all of our preliminary requests. This made a great impression on me, as I had early contracted with another Lake Placid owner for a rental which had been confirmed, and then weeks later backed out on when he got a longer term rental party, leaving us high and dry without accommodations for a trip that we had already committed to. The Janaks were prompt and always courteous with our questions.

We are already planning another family vacation in Lake Placid, and wouldn’t dream of staying anywhere else but here. I just loved sitting on the porch enjoying Lake Placid’s changing weather!

Fabulous family reunion

  • 5 of 5
Three generations of our family gathered at this lovingly-cared-for Victorian home in Lake Placed for 4 days. The house is located 5 min walk from downtown shops and restaurants (and the Olympic ice rink) and 10 minutes to the public beach. The kitchen is well-stocked, the bedrooms sleep 14 comfortably, the front porch is perfect for an summer evening dinner, and the park next door is ideal for kids to unwind.
