SPECIAL IRONMAN RENTAL INFORMATION (Sorry, Ironman rentals are no longer available)

Please note that for an Ironman rental we will require a two-week total rental --this may be split between two visits - a late spring training visit and the actual event visit -- the event visit must end on a Sunday -- most past Ironman athletes have stayed the week after the event. Since our normal rental week for the summer is Sunday to Sunday this is the only way for us not to ''lose'' part of two very popular July rental weeks. Our home is perfectly situated for Ironman -- no parking issues (a serious consideration for this race!) and walking distance to the swim and transition area -- plus a hot tub for after the race.

As fellow triathletes we try to be fair to Ironman athletes while not negatively affecting our peak rental season. We do this two ways #1 - We do not increase our normal summer rates for Ironman and #2 - We request the two-week total rental described above.

Main Street: 4 Minute Walk

We both love the Adirondacks and Lake Placid. Lake Placid is a wonderful family vacation destination. Fitness enthusiasts will appreciate the challenging bike terrain, miles of hiking/running/skiing trails and crisp mountain lakes. Explore the beauty that is the Adirondacks and discover why we've kept returning after close to 50 years of visits!

Location is one of the best features of our home -- we're in the center of the village tucked away in a quiet residential neighborhood. When we visit we walk everywhere and leave the cars behind! Some of our guests enjoy walks around Mirror Lake, a stroll down Main Street or a tour of the Olympic Arena. Other guests (and ourselves) find that our home is so comfortable that they have a hard time leaving it behind!

AMAZING TIME

  • 5 of 5
What an amazing week we had. The weather was perfect as were the accommodations. We felt so comfortable here and I would recommend a stay here for anyone. The owners have spent time and effort making sure this place fit everyone's needs and then some. I can see this being a perfect place any season of the year.

PERFECT GETAWAY IN LAKE PLACID

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this great house with two other families. We loved our experience from being to end. Owner was very responsive to all my irritating questions - we had never been on a ski vacation to Lake Placid. The second floor where the kitchen and family room was actually bigger than I anticipated. Kitchen was well supplied with spices and all the kitchen equipment. The kids ended up hanging in the cozy downstairs family room while the adults listened to music and relaxed on second floor. Bunk beds were super comfortable and roomy. Heated garage was clutch for ski gear. Hot tub was great and so was game room. I would rent here again - proximity to town was ideal - we walked into town although an uphill walk - it was beautiful. Town was great, food great, service was less than ideal but oh well. Only comment is that it would have been ideal to have the propane tank filled in the gas grille b/c guys wanted to grille steaks one night but we managed fine. You will not regret renting this great home. We simply loved it!

Owner's Response: We strive to make our home as comfortable and well-equipped as possible. We should probably put a little sign by our Weber grill that explains that the grill is hooked into the main gas supply so no "little" propane tank is necessary - we use the main gas supply so that our guests never have to worry about running out of propane in the middle of cooking.

AMAZINGLY WONDERFUL TIME BY ALL

  • 5 of 5
Have been at various places for family outings with mixed results, but this location has definately set the bar high. Without a doubt, on of THE most comfortable, warm, fun places we have ever stayed at.
Spaceous and accomodating with lots to do while there. One of the best stocked kitchens we have ever stayed at. Made the whole week feel as if we were home. Will definately look to book this property again upon our next trip back to Lake Placid. A great place to stay!

OH SO GRAND!

  • 5 of 5
We spent 3 glorious days in this house and loved every minute of our stay. The house is conveniently located in the centre of town (although a walk to dine or shop does require a bit of a climb) and accommodated 8 of us with no problem whatsoever. The kitchen is extremely well laid out and equipped and we happily cooked and ate all our dinners there. The living room is right beside the kitchen so everyone can be included. The highlights (for us at least) had to be the games room and hot tub. After a tough day hiking or shopping it was such a pleasure to relax in the hot tub and then play table tennis or air hockey. We also had the opportunity to use the decks on a number of occasions and enjoyed them as well. All in all it was an extraordinary time in an extraordinary home. We definitely plan on returning next year.

ABSOLUTELY FIRST CLASS

  • 5 of 5
The house was even better than we expected. There were eleven of us but we all found spaces we liked, never felt crowded, but had lots of space for 'togetherness' too.

All the appliances were in good condition, the games downstairs worked very well and were lots of fun (we organized a riotous team competition) the beds were comfortable, and the TV/DVD player worked very well.

Lots of activities in the area. As the weather was cool, we didn't do the water sports we had planned, but had lots of wonderful hiking and other activities. I think we have a couple of prospective 46ers in the family.

Thanks so much for the stay. I hope we manage another such trip.
