Overview

Lake Placid House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 6-8)

Built in 2006, take in spectacular views of Whiteface Mountain from the cozy screen porch, which features an outdoor fireplace. Or enjoy the Whiteface view from the 6 person Hot Tub on the deck. Additional large stone fireplace in the open living/dining/kitchen area with cathedral ceiling. Bose sound system indoor and out, and great Wi-Fi throughout. Beautiful suede and leather furniture appoints the living area. Gourmet fully-equipped Kitchen with stainless appliances, Jenn-Air grill, and seating at the granite counter tops. Additional Dining area.

You'll find a comfy sectional down in the Playroom, which features a large flat-screen TV, Direct TV, and DVD player. Two bedrooms and a full bath complete this level. There is a 2-Car heated garage, with a workbench perfect for skis and bikes.

Up in the loft there is a pull-out sofa and additional seating area. King Master Suite on the main floor has another fireplace for heat and ambiance, Tiffany ceiling fan, bathroom with dual sinks, over-sized soaking tub, shower w/seat, and french doors that open to the large deck with gorgeous views of the High Peaks.

All linens provided. Wood as well.

Book your stay up in the tree tops of Daisy Hill, yet just minutes to fine shopping, groceries, and restaurants. A recent family through VRBO seemed to capture it best: 'Everything was wonderful! Your place is beautiful, so close to everything yet still magically hidden in the woods. We had a lovely, relaxing time…. thank you.'

About Owner

Originally from the suburbs of New York, I was born in Lake Placid, because I was born in the summer, and Lake Placid has been a summer destination for my family for generations. I lived in Burlington VT for many years, and have been living and working in Boston now for almost a decade (Beacon Hill). I would spend as much time as I possibly could in Lake Placid, as I grew up a huge lake and mountain girl. But, my husband's family has a vacation home on an island off the coast of Maine, so time needs to be split in the summer. And, our winter ski weekends seem harder to come by with a new baby in our lives. Hence the need and desire to share my home with others, and help them enjoy my beloved Lake Placid experience.

Owner purchased this house in 2006

Why Owner chose Adirondacks

Daisy Hill Lodge is on a large area of land that has been in my family for generations, and my siblings and I were fortunate enough to be able to build our own vacation homes on the property. I built mine while still single in my 30's, designed to be the perfect getaway for a young growing family, and with the intention of it being my retirement plan. I'm quite glad I did that in '06, because Daisy Hill Lodge is looking much more beautiful than my 401k these days!

Not the get away we were hoping for

  • 1 of 5

On arrival we went to the deck to admire the view & my daughter was stung by a bee - there was a bee infestation under the hot tub cover. I immediately called the owner Martha & her caretaker who dismissed me immediately claiming he was an hour earlier and there were no bees. It took 6 calls and 6 messages before Martha picked up her phone at 10:30pm and acted surprised by my call. One of the persons in our party was allergic so we were very concerned. It took 2 complete days of our vacation for the owner to get the bees under control so we could enjoy the deck and the hot tub. On the 3rd day we could finally use the deck & hot tub.

The listing stated there was an outdoor grill, but, when I asked the owner where the grill was she blamed it on the listing site and said it was their error. At this time it still reads that there is an outdoor grill.

Another issue is no AC in the house and with 90 degree days it was unbearably hot especially at night.

Then after leaving the house spotless and everything in place where we found it (we even washed the bed sheets) - she claimed we used her hot tub chemicals (we did not touch them) and that there were broken items and kept a large portion of the deposit.

We were hopeful because of the great reviews here on Home Away, but, unfortunatley it was a bad experience. There are lots of great choices of homes to stay in - unfortunately we chose wrong.

Beautiful house with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house for a week for Ironman Lake Placid and I can't say enough good things about it.

The owners were great, very responsive and very easy to deal with. Check was very straight forward and the house was spotless clean upon arrival.

The setup of kitchen/living room area is perfect for entertaining and has some amazing views of the area.

The bedrooms are spacious and very comfortable.

The hot tub on the deck is the icing on the cake. The perfect way to unwind and hangout after the race or after day of hiking or skiing.

I can't recommend the place enough!

A wonderful Family get-together!

  • 4 of 5

We wanted to get together on the east coast with our family! Daisy Hill was an awesome choice. We were able to hike, golf, walk by the lake, tour the Olympic sites and relax with family. Being able to leave from the front door to hike made us want to try it in the winter months when we could ski out. The only drawback was the bed in the lower bedroom was droopy and the occupants sloped toward the middle. We had awesome dinners, enjoyed the hot tub and the fire kept us warm. A great family get-away! The views were awesome. Saw Whiteface and the ski and bobsled areas.

Awesome experience!

  • 5 of 5

I would definitely recommend this rental property! The owners are great/easy to deal with; exchange of contract and funds was easy; the house was clean and cozy. Loved the fireplace at night! Hot tub was in exceptional condition. Terrific experience - no regrets and would rent there again!

Wonderful property and great location

  • 5 of 5

We chose Daisy Hill for a quick getaway at the end of the summer. I could not be happier with the choice. The owners were great to work with, the property is perfect. It feels like you're alone in the mountains but you are very close to town. The home is laid out perfectly. It has great space to spend time together but it also allow for you to "get way" in the house to curl up with your favorite book. The view from the deck is spectacular, especially from the hot tub! We often try different properties as we return to an area but as far as Lake Placid, there’s no need to try anything else, we’ve found our “home away from home” at Daisy Hill. We can’t wait to return this winter.
