Lake Placid Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Cottage, 4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths (Sleeps 6-8)
Enjoy the Adirondack lifestyle in one of the original Lake Placid Club Cottages. Elms Cottage was built in 1926 and retains its original charm with its pine hardwood floors, screened porches, stone terrace, and stone fireplace. Rustic elegance with top of the line furnishings. Views of the High Peaks and the Olympic bobsled run are visible all year from every room except one.
There are four bedrooms, each with its own en suite bath. The master, with a king bed and screened porch, is on the second floor. The second bedroom upstairs has two twins with original Lake Placid Club iron frames. (With advance notice, the twins can be converted to a king.) One of the first floor bedrooms has a queen bed. The other is equipped as a second gathering area with a queen sleeper sofa, TV with DVD player, and screened porch. (The sleeper sofa is a sling style; i.e., there is not an iron bar across the middle of the bed).
The living room and dining room are comfortably furnished in the Adirondack style. Huge windows provide stunning views of the High Peaks and fabulous skies. Plenty of wood is provided for roaring fires in the stone fireplace. The fully-equipped gourmet kitchen has a new dual fuel range, a full compliment of small appliances, and plenty of wine glasses. Full laundry room with new, large capacity washer and dryer.
There is so much to do! It's an easy walk from Elms Cottage to the Village of Lake Placid, Mirror Lake, and Lake Placid itself. In the Village and around the lakes you'll find shopping, the Olympic hockey stadium and ice rink, public tennis courts, a public beach, boat rentals, equestrian stables, restaurants, and pubs.
You can also walk to the Lake Placid Club golf courses. Challenge yourself on the two championship courses or enjoy a quick nine holes on the Club's executive course.
In the winter, you can ski from ELMS Cottage to trails that crisscross the golf courses. Downhill skiing at Whiteface Mountain and cross-country skiing at the Olympic Sports Complex at Mt. Van Hoevenberg are a short drive away.
Lake Placid, the home of the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympics, is 2 hours from Albany, 2 hours from Burlington, VT, 4.5 hours from NYC, and 2.5 hours from Montreal.

Guestbook comments from the owner
On September 26, 2014 seven of us from Western New York traveled to ELMS COTTAGE for a weeks stay. Our goal was to take in the autumnal splendor of the Adirondacks. After researching rental houses in Lake Placid, we chose ELMS because of its size, location and because of the photos with the listing. We chose well. The house exceeded our requirements. We found the location perfect, within walking distance of much of what the village offers. Fully equipped in every way, beautifully decorated, and very clean.
The setting of the house was most impressive. Lots and lots of room with a large country table for big dinners and games. The best of the house is the back porch, completely furnished with rockers and a breathtaking view. We spent many hours watching the scenery change every few minutes. Only the magical colors of the season could outshine ELMS. Our week was perfect in every way.
