I am a retired CPA and my wife, Mickey, a retired school nurse. We moved to Lake Placid in 1969 and raised our three children there.

John Lansing purchased this cabin in 2011

This property is located next door to our own camp and at one time had been part of a music camp owned by my father. When it came on the market in 2011 we decided to buy it and turn it into a vacation rental property.

Peaceful Relaxing Family Getaway

LOVED LOVED LOVED this renovated vacation home. We are normally beach goers but have been transformed into mountain lovers thanks to John and his beautiful cabin and hospitality. The listing was exactly as described, with clean and adequate accommodations for myself, my husband, three teens, and our sometimes naughty dog! John was always available to do anything to make our stay more pleasurable. We rented his boat which was very well maintained and clean. The boat ride to the village was not very far, but just far enough to give us the privacy that we desired. We enjoyed lounging at the house and on the deck, and around the lake area. We also participated in hikes, golfing, and boating activities on the lake. In the evening we were very tired and chose to relax in the cabin. Evening activities included long dinners, spending time playing games, reading, and eating the s'mores that my son cooked over the fire pit. The fresh mountain air, views from the cabin, and beautiful sunrises were appreciated. Much fun and many happy family memories were made on this special vacation. Serene, scenic, private...divine.

Superb Adirondack treasure!

This is a spectacular setting for a fine camp stay. The ever-changing views of Whiteface Mountain from the spacious boathouse deck are unparalleled! The well equipped, three boat slip boat house is convenient and very accessible. The house is spacious, clean and well appointed. The owner, John, is friendly, gracious and ready to provide anything you need. This setting is just perfect for getting away (via boat only) to a superb Adirondack treasure spot. Boating on the placid lake is filled with ever changing scenes. You will often see classic wood boats cruising by as you lounge on the deck. We had a great time and definitely plan to come back to stay again soon.

John's house is fantastic. It includes all the basic amenities -- full kitchen (no dishwasher, but no biggie) including pots and pans, shower, tub, satellite TV (if you're crazy enough to want to watch TV in such a beautiful place), charcoal grill, fire pit, etc. It also has some not-so-basic amenities: boat slip with a rowboat, paddleboat and canoe, beautiful roof deck on top of the boat garage overlooking gorgeous Lake Placid, peace and quiet (although motorboats with kids tubing did get a little noisy one day), a great dock for fishing, a swimming area with steps down for kids and dogs and best of all, a gracious, welcoming and kind host in John and his wife.

The house is only accessible by boat, which keeps it feeling secluded and special. John also rented us a boat, which was in great shape but for the totally unclear gas gauge.

The only thing to note is that there are two houses next door that are pretty close, and a public footpath that runs in front of the house that only gets a tiny bit of activity. Nothing major, but does create a little bit of noise.

We had an amazing time and will definitely go back. Four thumbs and four paws way up.
