DeScente Lodge is located on Riverside Drive, just 4 miles outside of the village of Lake Placid, and 5 miles from Whiteface Mountain Ski Resort. The property includes the Lodge, which is set back from the road 300 yards, a large front yard, and access to the Ausable River just across the road.
The Lodge has a large modern kitchen, large dining room, and living room, with a fireplace that opens to both living and dining areas. Its six bedrooms and three bathrooms offer a perfect spot for a group to get away for a ski, golf, hiking, or fishing trip. Ideal for a large extended family group as well. It's not a hotel; it's a home. Have fun during the day, gather back at the house for social time; then cook dinner as a group or go out to one of the many excellent restaurants in nearby Lake Placid, Saranac Lake or Wilmington.
Keywords: Large, adirondack style lodge/home/cottage to accommodate recreation groups, families, business groups for weekends or full weeks.
I am the nephew of the owners of this property and am managing the rental of the Descente Lodge. Our family has spent many fun filled weeks at DeScente Lodge with our cousins over the past twenty five years, enjoying the wonderful ambiance of the Lake Placid area.
DeScente Lodge was the residence for the Japanese Olympic delegation during the 1980 Winter Olympics. The Brazill family from New Jersey bought the lodge after the Olympics and have spent many Christmas and summer vacations there with their 8 children and grandchildren since that time.
