About Owner

The Huttlinger House was built in 1908 and has been held by relatively few owners during its long history. For many years it was known locally as "the Cautin House" and was then purchased by Mrs. Luders, a pre-World War II emigrant from Germany, who established it as a guesthouse for nightly, weekly and monthly guests. Her guest register runs from the 1940's to 1953 when the house was purchased as a first home by newly-married Jerry and Anne Huttlinger. The Huttlingers continued the guest house business for several years, but this gradually tapered off as four children and numerous pets took over. For more than sixty years, the house has remained the family home and the scene of many family events. There were social gatherings to host a variety of guests, from world-renowned musicians to circus performers. It was home to the Sports Illustrated photographers during the 1980 Olympics. The Huttlinger House embraced all within it and provided a warm and comfortable home. The house is now jointly owned by the children who were raised here. All are settled elsewhere, but none wanted to lose the scene of so many happy memories. So we offer it to you, hoping that it will generate happy memories for your family and friends as well.

Owner purchased this House in 1953

                                                            Great house, great location for two families!

                                                            With a group of 11 this house was perfect for our ski weekend. Everyone enjoyed being able to walk into town and there was plenty of space for all. The owners were so nice and accommodating making check in and check out a breeze! We will be back!

                                                            Wonderful location in winter wonderland

                                                            Elizabeth M.

                                                            Our extended family of seven, plus our dog, just enjoyed a wonderful Christmas holiday in the Huttlinger House. The four bedrooms on the second floor and the two bedrooms in the attic gave everyone ample room. Also, thanks to the wonderful radiators, the house stayed warm and comfortable, even as the temperature dropped to -17 F. We are a family that loves its fireplaces, and we kept the large fireplace in the living room hard at work. We were so grateful for the generous supply of firewood that got us through a very cold week. The house is situated so that the sun and dining rooms provide beautiful views down the street to Mirror Lake, and it's an easy walk to town. Thank you to Tierney and John for making our stay so comfortable and for hauling away even the Christmas tree after our visit!

                                                            Great house!

                                                            Bethany W.

                                                            Great house in a fantastic location. Lots of space for our group of 13 individuals. Easy to walk to lake, downtown and olympic village.

                                                            Great place for a comfortable family gathering

                                                            Carolyn M.

                                                            Fantastic location steps from Main Street - comfortable historical home with lots of room to relax - all 10 of us easily around the dining room table and seated around the fireplace. 4 very generous bedrooms on 2nd floor. Kitchen is very well equipped. Owner was very responsive to minor issue we had. Great value and comfort for a crowd.

                                                            Great for family gatherings...

                                                            Anja M.

                                                            We enjoyed our weekend at the Huttlinger house. We had 5 kids ages 8 and under and 1 infant, plus 7 adults. We all fit beautifully and had plenty of spaces to spread out, play games, read, and build with legos. A perfect location right near the center of town with a peaceful walk around Mirror Lake helping us start our days. Thanks for a wonderful weekend with family!

                                                            An excellent choice close to Main St

                                                            Jason L.Rochester, NY

                                                            Sept 2-4, 2016

                                                            A group of us chose the Huttlinger House as 'base camp' for a weekend of hiking in the high peaks. The charm and feel of an older home is evident the moment you walk in. The kitchen is large and well equipped and there are multiple bedrooms and bathrooms to accommodate the group. Main St. Lake Placid restaurants and shopping are only a few steps away, as are the water sports available on Mirror Lake. Parking can get crowded on Main St., so the ability to easily walk was a great advantage.

                                                            The owners are very responsive (email/text) and were genuinely motivated to provide an enjoyable stay.

                                                            The large front porch and the yard provided more than enough space for our entire group to enjoy time together.

                                                            As long as the group for annual trip doesn't get too big, there is no doubt we'd look to Huttlinger House first for our rental needs.
