Beautiful home close to downtown Lake Placid

  • 5 of 5

This home is great! It's walking distance from downtown Lake Placid and about 15 minutes from Whiteface. Very comfortable and the owner and caretaker are very responsive to the needs of their guests. We had a fantastic time here!

Lovely homey home, a highlight

  • 5 of 5

We rented four houses in this neighborhood, and ended up having the longest night at this home. It's lovely and comfortable, which isn't to say modern and renovated-- there are fancier showers and hot tubs elsewhere-- but there's a pool table here, there's trivial pursuit, there are a lot of gathering places, the type of place you walk in and drink a beer and never feel underdressed or that you have to overperform.

Joe is good, fast, with communication. Reasonable guy, even gave us a later move out time.

This is a massive, comfortable, fun house, and if you're with a group of people who want primarily to laugh and enjoy each other, it's hard to think of a better place you could do it. Highly recommended.

Great Stay !

  • 5 of 5

The owner is helpful and accommodating. The house is clean and the rooms are good. Best part of this house is the location, walkable distance to lake and main street. It can easily accommodate 14-16 members. I would definitely recommend this place !

We stayed for three days. On arrival every thing was in order and as shown in the photographs and as discribed. We were 15 people with 2 seniors, 6 adults and 7 children. The house is 5 miniutes walk from lake mirror and the shopping area. We all enjoyed our stay and would like to visit again.

Great reunion!

  • 4 of 5

This house was perfect for our family reunion. Joe was very accomodating. The house is spacious and has a nice private yard. Kitchen appliances were great and we had no problems. Only downside for us was not enough glasses, mugs, plates and silverware for 14 people so the dishwasher was continually having to run. Also had to make up a few of the beds (the trundle and the futon) when we arrived which was no big deal. It is a short walk to Main St. and our beautiful town.

We would rent this again anytime!

Perfect for mixed group of 30 year olds

  • 5 of 5

The owner was very easy to deal with and accommodating.

Basically, what you see is what you get with this house. It is a charming, comfortable old house with plenty of space. The bedrooms are as pictured - some large bedrooms with more impressive beds, and also rooms with a futon, or trundle bed, etc. Plenty of space for our group of fourteen 30-year-olds.

The location of this house is perfect. In the hear of Lake Placid so it's an easy trip to Whiteface or any of the local attractions and a very short walk into town.

I would definitely consider renting here again.
