Adirondacks House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, sleeps 8 adults.

Located minutes from downtown Lake Placid, the Birdhouse is a relaxing, quiet, peaceful home, overlooking scenic Outlet Brook, babbling just outside. On a private drive, this three bedroom, 2.5 bath retreat offers spacious, accommodations on two levels.

The first level contains: foyer and closet; kitchen with deck and grill; living room; one bedroom has a queen bed, half bath and balcony; another bedroom has a queen bed , Cable TV and DVD player and balcony; and a full bath and linen closet.

Accessible via interior stairs and an exterior private entrance, the lower level living area includes: a lounge area with cable TV and Netflix; an adjacent sleeping nook with a king bed; and a bedroom with 2 twin beds and a large crib. A full bathroom, laundry room and storage room complete the lower level.

The Birdhouse is appointed with families in mind, with strollers, portable play pens, booster seats, a toddler bed and a changing table. Toys, puzzles and games are supplied for all ages.

On two sides of the house are small yard areas. In front of the house is a large parking area. Behind the house, is a steep embankment that leads down to the brook. At this time we do not have a trail to take you down to the brook, but you may want to access the brook by scrambling down the bank. The babbling brook is fairly shallow and we hear it may be good for fishing. If you have children, please supervise them at all times when they are outside of the house and near the brook.

The beautiful Acorn Street playground is a half mile, 10-15 minute walk, with a sand base, swings and a jungle gym.

About a mile away on Main Street in Lake Placid, you will find: Starbucks; a movie theater; Gap Outlet; EMS; good restaurants; and Mirror Lake public beach and park. To get to Main Street is a 2 minute drive, or if you are used to walking, an easy walk 15-20 minute walk. McDonald's, Hannaford Supermarket, and the new Marshalls are right around the corner on Route 86.

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!

"Birdhouse" is a great nest!

  • 5 of 5

Well appointed and very well supplied--and clean by any standards--this was a delightful place to stay. The cleanliness and organization of the home was much appreciated and contributed greatly to our enjoyment. Very convenient to downtown Lake Placid, the home is privately situated, but not remote. My compliments to the homeowners; I would stay in their home again.

Clean house, location excellent

  • 5 of 5

A group of us stayed at this house in late January for a wedding. The house has an abundance of paper towels, toilet paper, towels, sheets, pillows and blankets. The wifi in the house works well and all of the rooms has its own thermostat. I found the house extremely clean and very organized. It is also very kid friendly. There were even bath toys in the upstairs full bath! The owners were a pleasure to deal with and responded quickly to any inquiries. There is not much to do upon check out as the cleaning staff must take care of it all and the deposit was paid back quickly. The house is well located such that it was secluded but less than 5 minutes away from supermarkets and restaurants. It’s about a 20 minute drive to Whiteface Mountain. I would definitely stay here again.

A True Gem

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this great property the week between Christmas and New Years. Its location is super. Nestled on a quiet lane just a short distance from downtown. The layout and amenities are very family friendly. The house is spotless and well stocked. Owners are attentive and very easy to deal with. We can't wait to return.

A peaceful retreat in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean with all the ammenities of home. It was near the center of lake placid but still felt like it was in the middle of the woods. It was within easy driving distance of other Adirondack attractions. I dealt with Larry and he was very helpful from my initial contact to the end of our stay.

I would recommend this property to friends or relatives.

We went hiking, took a boat ride on Lake Placid, visited Ft. Ticoneroga, Whiteface Mountain, Ausable Chasm, the old town of Essex and The Wild walk in Tupper Lake. The best food was had at a restaurant in the center of Lake Placid named Smoke Signals. Good white pizza was had at Johnnies, and for those into healthy Eating try The Good Bite.

Spotlessly Clean Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the "Birdhouse" was first class. Spotlessly clean, nicely furnished, great amenities with many thoughtful extras. The location is a little too far to walk into town but is situated on a very private road overlooking a stream and forrest. Ideal for families and small groups. Check in was seamless.

Highly recommended.
