Lake Placid Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Adirondack Townhouse, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 9-11)

Enjoy all the amenities of the Olympic Village with your friends and family in this large but cozy townhouse!

Nestled in a quiet community, the condo is within walking distance of all downtown shops, restaurants, bars and lakefront activities. You'll find all the modern features you'd expect, but your well-maintained vacation home is furnished in a rustic, Adirondack style. Off-street parking is ample. Whether you visit in summer or winter, all your needs will be met in this comfortable, well-appointed home away from home.

You will enjoy plenty of space on 3 levels in the home, with a layout that is perfectly designed for groups of friends or multiple families, assuming your group is like many others: wants your vacation to bring you together... but you still enjoy some quiet time apart! :-)

The main level has an open floor plan and houses the kitchen with breakfast bar, a powder room and sliding glass doors to a balcony/deck with mountain views and gas grill. The dining area features a table where a large group can easily sit for a feast or a rousing board game (games provided!). The comfortable living area has a new couch and loveseat for plentiful, yet cozy seating as you gather to watch one of the DVDs provided on the large TV. Or you can sip cocoa or wine as you warm up in front of the stone gas fireplace (easy on, easy off!) after a day on the slopes.

When you can't stand the sight of each other anymore (hey, it happens to everyone on vacation!), the kids can have the run of the whole lower level where there is a bedroom (1 full bed and 2 twins), a separate sleeping den (queen sleeper sofa), a full bathroom (shower stall only) and the laundry facilities. The den has toys, kids books, an electronic dartboard, a TV, DVD player and a Sony Playstation with games. (Don't worry if your party is all adults -- the lower level is comfortable, quiet and cozy for the grown-ups too!)

Meanwhile, the adults can retire a full 2 stories above, where the clatter of the kids fades away. The upstairs bedrooms -- 1 with a queen bed and the other with a queen and a twin -- both have TVs, plush carpeting, large closets and a shared bathroom with bathtub, and, best of all, peace, quiet and privacy.

The townhome is an easy walk to restaurants, bars, shopping and all the fun activities offered in downtown Lake Placid, yet it is tucked away in a quiet community for a relaxing, restful vacation.

We are confident you and your friends & family will enjoy your vacation in this Lake Placid townhome and we look forward to having you return to your new home away from home in the Adirondacks year after year.

About Rebecca

The Sheils & Rathmills are originally from New Jersey. Two thirds of the family still lives there; the other third lives in Chicago. All enjoy spending time in the Adirondacks and Lake Placid.

Rebecca purchased this townhome in 2007

Why Rebecca chose Adirondacks

We have been vacationing in Lake Placid since 1980 and finally bought a place for our family to enjoy in 2007. We hope your family enjoys Lake Placid and returns year after year to make memories to last a lifetime!

What makes this townhome unique

We love the winter activities in Lake Placid -- skiiing, skating, sledding. Coming back to the house for a cup of hot chocolate, a warm fire and board game is a great way to wind down. In the summer, it is an easy walk to the lake for swimming or into town for shopping, ice cream and a movie. We hope you enjoy your time in Lake Placid!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Comfortable, Well Maintained and Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Attractive, comfortable, clean and well maintained accommodation, accurately reflected in VRBO profile. Good location in easy walking distance of town centre and easy drive to Whiteface. Becky was really nice to deal with and helpful with local information. Would do it again.

Ski Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable and convenient accommodations. Everything was a-ok. We appreciated that the kitchen was outfitted with decent quality knives -- a rare treat compared to most rentals.

Location is excellent. Quiet sport that's quite literally seconds to town, and a short drive to Whiteface. Highly recommend Liquids & Solids, the cheffy pub just around the corner.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your comments, Mike! We are frequent vacation renters too and many of us like to cook, so we totally feel your pain of rentals with poorly equipped kitchens. Nothing like cutting your finger trying to slice a vegetable with a dull knife. Not fun! And thanks for sharing the great tip on Liquids & Solids - a neat little place that's only a stone's throw away. Cheers, Becky Cheers, Becky

Responsive, accommodating, comfortable, convenient.

  • 5 of 5

Becky was very responsive and helpful in answering questions. The rental was perfect for our group. It is right in the housing community at the Olympic Village. We arrived late at night, and there were no issues. Quick drive to Mt. Whiteface where skiing was incredible. The house has everything, even a Play Station, which turned out to be a big throwback hit.

PERFECT Ironman Lake Placid Home!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This rental is the absolutely perfect home for anyone racing Ironman Lake Placid or just looking to vacation in the Placid area. My family of seven stayed for an entire week and had a wonderful time.

Best parts of this house: super comfortable, well furnished, only two blocks from the run/bike course, perfectly located to see the sights of the Catskills, & very well managed by Merrill Thomas.

We can't wait to go back!!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks, Corey. Your feedback is greatly appreciated! As frequent VRBO renters ourselves, we also appreciate a well-maintained and comfortable rental, so we work hard on all the details that make our rental a great place to spend your vacation. I'm so glad we succeeded! :-D We're already booked for Iron Man 2015 (since April 2014!), but if you are interested in 2016 or beyond, don't hesitate to let us know -- or tell your racing friends! Cheers, Rebecca

The condo was exactly what we wanted for the weekend in the mountains. Close to lots of great places. Had all the supplies needed, sheets, towels, TP and garbage bags. And the many camping chairs were a great touch.

Owner's Response: Hi Kevin, Thanks so much for your feedback. It is greatly appreciated! You noted that our rental is great for tourists without a car. I didn't even think of that but it's so true! Our home is walking distance to all the great things downtown Lake Placid has to offer. And with the free Lake Placid trolley service, you can easily explore beyond the boundaries of downtown. Great tip! We hope you think of us the next time you travel to the Adirondacks - and tell your friends! Cheers, Rebecca

This was the first time I rented a home for vacation purposes. This condo is in a quiet neighborhood - enough out of the way from Main Street yet close enough to walk (.8 mile). The home is nicely decorated, spacious and has a well-equipped kitchen, toys for young children, WiFi, plenty of TVs, comfortable beds, washer/dryer & grill. We really enjoyed ourselves in Lake Placid and a big factor was the home. Thank you for leaving us w/good memories.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your comments, Maria. I'm so glad you enjoyed your first house rental with us! We've rented a lot through the years for our own vacations and stayed in some great homes and some terrible ones. Knowing how a bad rental can ruin a trip, we try very hard to ensure that our Lake Placid townhouse is among the great rentals by focusing on the details like the ones you mentioned -- plenty of TVs, toys for the kids, lots of amenities and all the creature comforts of home! Sounds like we succeeded. Hooray! :-D We hope you think of us the next time your visit Lake Placid. Cheers, Rebecca
