Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for allowing us to use your wonderful chalet. The layout is amazing with a beautiful view of the stream through the trees made us dream of glade skiing all night. Not only were the beds the most comfortable VRBO mattresses we’ve had the pleasure of using the chalet, your chalet was wonderfully clean and equipped. We loved it!! I would give it a 9 out of 10. 10 = ski in and ski out.



Thank you again. We will be back!

Comfortable, quiet, yet close to downtown.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed 3 nights for a ski vacation. The house met our needs perfectly. We were just a short drive to the hill and a short walk from downtown Lake Placid. I definitely recommend this place and will stay here again.

Second time here!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the Birdhouse. We first stayed in the summer of 2014 with a group of friends. This winter we stayed with our two young children and extended family. The house is equally suited for both. As someone who has lived in Lake Placid I can say this is a great house in a very convenient yet peaceful and private location. Larry and Jane are very responsive hosts. I expect that we will stay again!

A home away from home

  • 4 of 5

Everything that you will need is there. The village of Lake Placid is just 1 arrêt over but it feels like you are way out in the woods. Will defiantly stay here again on our next trip!

Beautiful house, meticulously organized and maintained

  • 5 of 5

Great place right in the village but completely private, the view out the living room down to the stream is fantastic. Best equipped house we’ve ever encountered!
