Overview

About the property

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 5

The Hut on Grand View is our home away from home and would like to share it with you when we are away. We are very centrally located - just 5 minutes away from Main Street on foot, 2 minutes away from the park and only 20 minutes by car to Whiteface Mountain. The Whiteface Shuttle stop is only 500 yards away. The pharmacy and grocery are just a stone's throw away by car. Despite being centrally located, our neighborhood still maintains its peace and tranquility.

Our home has two bedrooms for our guests with one full bathroom. Each bedroom can sleep two adults. The cozy living room which has a gas stove, can sleep another adult on the sofa bed. All bedrooms, living and dining room is fully carpeted. Our kitchen and dining room are well-equipped if you desire to have your home-cooked meals. The sunroom is newly renovated with cedar walls and brazilian cherry wood floors.

Sorry, no pets allowed.

Whether you are an avid winter sportsman, golfer or ironman (we are only a 5-minute walk from the starting line of Ironman), all your sports equipment can be stored safely and securely in the first floor of the house, the entry of which also serves as the mudroom. The laundry machine and dryer are located in the first floor as well (garage level). The first floor conveniently connects to the indoor 1-car garage. This is perfect for keeping your vehicle away from rain or snow during those nasty days. In case you have more than one vehicle in your party, our property has extra parking spaces just right in front of the house that can accommodate 2 vehicles.

We have a modest home with all the comforts of home and we're sure you'll love it!

Great Warm Family Place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Great home in Lake Placid, in walking distance to Main St. Home is fairly new, and kitchen is well equipped (much more than typical rental home). Very nice living and dining area for warm winter evenings near stove. Owners are very helpful, and easy to deal with. Looking forward to go back,

Great location, very clean, well equipped.

  • 4 of 5

Location was excellent. Quiet, family neighborhood. Only several streets/minutes walk to Main Street restaurants and shopping. Easy access to roads to activities. House was very clean and bedrooms/living room/sunroom very comfortable. Kitchen was well equipped for cooking breakfasts and dinners. Liked option of parking in garage overnight.

We loved our stay. We especially enjoyed the back sun room. Quick walk to town. The owner is super easy to work with and very accommodating. We plan to rent again next year.

The perfect place for our racing vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at the Hut on Grand View for a Vacation that led into my racing the Ironman Lake Placid. Marion was awesome throughout the whole process, from initial contact, all the way through our leaving the house. The house is in a great location, and we were able to walk to most everything we did. The kids really enjoyed it. The house was clean, very well appointed, and comfortable. We had more than enough space and enjoyed the backyard and the especially nice sunroom on the back of the house. I highly recommend this property for a family vacation or anyone who wants to enjoy Lake Placid and all it has to offer!

Great location in Lake Placid

  • 4 of 5

My family and I stayed for a long weekend and enjoyed the house on Grand View. The location is great, just up the hill behind Main Street. Just a quick note, the hill is not a joke and is pretty steep, but we knew that coming in and it wasn't an issue for any of us. The house was well set up and had everything we needed. I particularly enjoyed the sun room on the back of the house for relaxing after a day of hiking in the High Peaks.
