About the property

Walk to Village, 4 Bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, Sleeps 10

This spacious chalet is nestled between Lake Placid and Mirror Lake in the desirable Signal Hill section of Lake Placid Village. Though the property is secluded and private, it is just a short 5-minute walk to Mirror Lake, Lake Placid, and all of Lake Placid's shops and restaurants. It is also situated a short distance from the Whiteface Mountain Shuttle and a quick car ride to hundreds of miles of wilderness trails perfect for hiking, snowshoeing, etc.

The house is tastefully furnished and features a large, well-appointed kitchen and eating area, an outdoor deck with picnic table and grill, 3 fireplaces, a giant picture window, multiple televisions, king and queen size beds, a bunk room for kids, laundry, and free Wi-Fi. The house sleeps 10. We welcome children and even offer a portable crib for our littlest guests as well as high chairs/booster seats.

The Retreat Between the Lakes is perfect for fall, winter, and summer vacations. In the fall, guests can marvel at the beauty of the foliage while on a lovely walk around nearby Mirror Lake, during one of many nearby wilderness hikes, or just by gazing out the giant picture window while cozying up in the Great Room with something warm to drink. In winter, guests can ski Whiteface Mountain, shoot down the toboggan run onto frozen Mirror Lake, take a dogsled ride, skate on the Olympic Oval, or explore a number of winter Olympic venues famous to the town. In summer, guests can stay close to home and enjoy the cool breezes on the large outdoor deck and private grounds or take a short walk and enjoy the summer fun offered by either Mirror Lake or Lake Placid Lake.

10 out of 10

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean, cozy, and luxurious. Everything was as advertised, overall great experience. Anyone who books this location will be happy with their experience. The property is a 5-10 minute walk from the main street in Lake Placid, and an easy 15-20 minute drive from Whiteface Mountain Ski Resort.

Everything we dreamed of!

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely perfect for our group of ten adults, it was close enough to town yet it seemed we were in the middle of nowhere! The layout was perfect, plenty of spaces to have a little time to yourself but when we all wanted to be together the kitchen, dining room and great room were exactly what we needed. We would definitely love to go back again!

Perfect Lake Placid Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our group had a great time staying at the Retreat Between the Lakes. The location is perfect, as you can walk into town (10 min walk) yet still have relative privacy. Plenty of beds, a fun game room that saw a lot of action, and a nice large hot tub to soak in after skiing at Whiteface (20 min drive). We didn't have any issues, and would highly recommend this house if you're interested in spending time in Lake Placid with friends or family.

Thanksgiving Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My son, his family & I spent Thanksgiving week in the Adirondacks. The house was less than a 10 minute walk into town. The house was fully equipped so we were able to prepare our Thanksgiving dinner & celebrate the holiday together. The family used the outdoor hot tub in the evening & enjoyed looking at the stars. We could not have asked for a nicer setting.

In addition to the house our family enjoyed going up to Whiteface Ski area, hiking in the Keene Valley & dinning in the village of Lake Placid.

A Lacrosse Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were in Lake Placid for a tournament while staying at the Thien's vacation home. It was a great week made even better with everything that is offered by the Thien's: Hot Tub, Pool Table, Ping Pong Table.... Beautiful spacious house allowed for the kids to be on one level while the adults were on the other.... Hope to stay here again in the future

The house met all of our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

The house was wonderful! We were especially glad to have the game room because it turned out to be a rainy week. Loved the location of the quiet but also close to downtown. Thanks for providing a great property.
