Space 3,300 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


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.

Great property

  • 4 of 5

The property is amazing. It's very cozy and clean and the extras of the game room and hot tub are excellent. For those who like to cook, the kitchen has just about everything you'll need, including two ovens.

Just one note for those with larger parties coming to stay: the water heater is relatively small and can only handle two showers at a time before needing to recharge. Considering the property has three showers and can hold 10+ people, this could be an issue for some.

Owner's Response: We are glad to hear you enjoyed your time at our property in Lake Placid. We are sorry to hear you felt inconvenienced by the lack of hot water. The house is equipped with a slightly larger than average residential hot water heater, similar to what you would find in any home. In the 7 years we have been renting the property, this is the first time we have heard of this problem. We will be sure to keep our ears open for any future problems regarding the supply of hot water. ~Ted & Lisa Thien

A beautiful house in a beautiful setting! Great room was an amazing space for the family to spend time. The whole house is great, with all amenities and great attention to detail. Location is great - scenic, and walking distance to town.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fantastic week at this house. Two families, 8 people, plenty of room for kids and adults to spread out and enjoy themselves. This is more than a rental house, you are staying at someone's home, with every possible amenity available. Great location for walking into town, place was clean and well furnished. We hope to go back and check out Late Placid in the summer.

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our week at the Retreat Between the Lakes immensely. The house is well furnished and fully equipped. The hot tub is large and beautiful. Relaxing in it while the outside temperature dropped below freezing was wonderful. The beds are comfortable, the Great Room is wonderful and the kitchen has everything you could want. The house is close to town and beautifully maintained.

The only thing I would like to see added would be a large screen TV in the Great Room possibly even with surround sound.

I highly recommend the Retreat Between the Lakes for everyone.

Wonderful weekend with friends

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful weekend with friends in this beatiful home. Perfect place to spend time together in a winter wonderland! Spacious and immaculate. Easy walk to town but honestly the best part was hanging in the great room with friends, sitting by the fire and playing some of the numerous games that were available. If you have kids or teens the game room is a great bonus.

Highly recommended.
