About The Owner

Born and raised in Lake Placid, I love enjoying all that Lake Placid and the Adirondacks have to offer. My favorite things to do here are hike, swim, ski and relax in front of the fire.

I know you'll have an unforgettable stay in Lake Placid. I hope you’ll love it as much as I do.

Why The Owner chose Mirror Lake

This home has been in my family for generations. I love staying here in every season, taking in the changing views and making new memories with family and friends.

What makes this house unique

The best part of our home is the lakeside porch - it's an unbeatable spot to enjoy the view.

Perfect for a quiet cup of coffee in the morning, lunch, cocktails at sunset and large candle-lit dinners.

Your own B&B in the heart of Mirror Lake

  • 5 of 5

This Lake Placid vacation home is a fabulous place to enjoy a long weekend in Lake Placid with family or friends. The home itself was comfortable for everyone in our group to hang together or find a nook for quiet reprieve. It was well-kept and cozy, the updated kitchen had everything we needed, and the porch was a beautiful spot to admire the lake rain or shine. The house is perched on a sprawling lawn on an ideal area of the lake for kayaking, swimming, and your own slice of serenity. Our only complaint was that we needed to be vigilant in looking out for dog poop in the yard. We needed to pick it up multiple times in order to avoid stepping in it on the walk from the house to the dock. Despite our love for dogs, since we were not permitted to bring our own, it was frustrating to have to deal with this inconvenience from the neighboring dogs. This aside, we had a fantastic weekend and highly recommend this home for an unforgettable getaway.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words Kelsey. So glad you enjoyed your stay, we love happy guests! It is upsetting to learn that the neighbors' dogs created such a nuisance, our sincerest apologies. We have been in touch with our neighbors to ensure that this does not happen again. We look forward to having you back in the future.

great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time August 2015 with our family. Private house close to town on quiet mirror lake with spectacular views. Private dock and yard. Dinner, kayak rental etc within walking distance. Pathway around the lake was a bonus. Historic house- would strongly recommend it

Beautiful House and Location!!

  • 5 of 5

This home was absolutely beautiful! It was clean, well kept, and could not have a better location overlooking Mirror Lake. It is a short walk to get into town, which is also very convenient! It is a quiet area, and perfect for an enjoyable getaway! The owners were extremely easy to work with, always getting back to you very quickly, to answer any questions you may have. I am beyond pleased with this house, and I would recommend it to anyone! I cannot wait to plan another trip to Lake Placid, and stay here again! Beautiful place!!!

winter wonderland

  • 5 of 5

spent a long family weekend at this property for the 4th year in a row - you couldn't ask for a better setting. The views are outstanding, the location is very close to town, within a short walk, yet it is a very quiet area

the accommodations are terrific for a family get together, plenty of room and everything you need is provided at the house.

the owners are very easy to work with and you truly feel like you are in their home.

when we have the chance to be in Lake Placid, we wouldn't stay any place else.

Amazing Location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a wedding weekend with 11 of us and couldn't have been happier with the choice. The house is older (~1910 I believe), but is in very good shape. But the real selling point is the property; great mountain views of Algonquin and Iroquois, excellent little dock to sit on the lake and relax, perfect yard to play lawn games or just sit in the ADK chairs and relax with the views. And the owner was very responsive to inquiries, accommodating with check-in, gave us plenty of privacy/space and very prompt with checkout/return of security. Overall an excellent experience and we will definitely look to stay again in the future.
