About The 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.

The Owner purchased this house in 1953

Why The Owner chose Lake Placid

Warmth, comfort and modern amenities, but also the charm and architectural qualities which are unique to homes of this era.

What makes this house unique

You just can't beat this location! And the size of the house allows everyone to have their own space even if they're part of a large group.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for the yummy banana bread! Hit the spot after a hike! We loved our time here. Such a cozy, spacious, unique home. We hope to come again.

Great place for a comfortable family gathering

  • 4 of 5

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...

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great for a large or extended family.

  • 4 of 5

We were a group of 8 (parents, grandparents, and 4 kids), and this house was perfect. Plenty of room for everyone, and well-equipped for a big gang. Definitely a "heritage" house with the expected creaky floors, leaky pipes, and sticky windows. Mind you, comfier beds would have been nice... That being said, the location is unbeatable and the house is truly charming. We would recommend this property.

Perfect family home in Lake Placid

  • 5 of 5

Great home with historic character that accommodated our two families. Easy to find with an ideal location makes walking into Lake Placid a breeze. Plenty of room to relax, read and cook in a very well maintained and clean home. The owners were very accessible and helpful in coordinating our stay.
