About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 10)

All reviews are recent and best describe our house but at the risk of sounding like we're bragging, it's awesome! After 20 years of renting from others, we took the best from places we liked and lovingly put it into ours. We started with a comfortable living room where all guests can relax. Our kitchen is well stocked, modern appliances and a joy to use. Every bed is comfortable. The deck is terrific. It's a great house for multiple families to share. It's not just convenient to town, it's in town; walk to everything. Leave up to 4 cars in our driveway.

* Convenient Access to Whiteface Ski Area, High Peaks Wilderness, Great Fishing and World Class Golf. It's very near the Iron Man start and on the bike course.

* Driveway Parking For Up To 4 Vehicles (we've managed 6)

* 5 Bedrooms Sleep up to 10 People, Four Queen Beds, Bunk with Full and Twin Bed.

* Linens and Pillows Provided

* Full Bath with tub and shower and two other baths with showers - Towels Included

* Fast WIFI, two cable TV's , DVD/VCR

About Lon and Becky

Two families that enjoy the outdoors and still, after 11 years of co-ownership, each other. The house is a great base for all our outdoor activities: hiking, kayaking, cycling, running, lake swimming, skiing (dh & xc) snowshoeing, climbing (out of bed), fishing, shopping, golf .... all nearby. Collectively, we've traveled the US and abroad but we do the 6+ hour drive to the Adirondacks routinely and have been doing so for over 30 years. For us, there's no other place like it.

Lon and Becky purchased this house in 2006

Why Lon and Becky chose Lake Placid

Initially, it was location, location, location, price and potential for a great place to bring family, friends and guests. Today, it's still about location but it's potential has been realized. Our ratings, all 40 plus of them as of this writing, speak for themselves.

What makes this house unique

It's not just convenient to town, it's in town. Lake Placid Village center is a 5 minute walk. It's comfortable; roomy without being cavernous and an amazing deal for multiple families and competitively priced for parties of 2. Like to cook? You'll love our kitchen. You can park your car; your sisters, brothers and mothers cars (4) and forget about it; walk around town. Did I mention bowling (never been).....right around the corner. Foodie restaurants and great drinks in rolling distance.....literally (been too often). And then there's something else seldom mentioned by other owners: we have the very best property manager in Lake Placid; seldom seen but there if you ever need him.

Guestbook comments from the owner


"We stayed at Lake Placid house this spring and had a wonderful time. The house is

very comfortable and has been furnished with a loving touch, making our stay very


The house is a short walk from the Olympic Arena and main street. We're looking

forward to our return!"
