Hi, you are inquiring about the Lake Placid townhouse of Lucie & Sylvain. We are a couple of outdoors enthusiasts who are environmentally conscious. We enjoy nature, whether it is hiking, biking, skiing, canoeing or kayaking.
We love the Adirondacks. We also love Lake Placid because it is a wonderful family vacation destination. Fitness enthusiasts will appreciate the challenging bike terrain, miles of hiking/running/skiing trails and crisp mountain lakes. You can also relive Olympic history on Main Street, home of the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympic Games.
We purchased this unit after 6 months of research and simply love its beautiful location. We are very happy that you are considering staying in our home.
Lucie & Sylvain purchased this townhome in 2013
Our Lazy Bear Townhouse combines an Adirondack-style decor with all the amenities expected in the 21st century. This is not just a house for rent, this is our HOME, where we live. You'll get everything you need, and more...
Accessible yet remarkably quiet, it is nestled in wooded seclusion against the backdrop of the High Peaks.
In 2014 alone, we have remodeled the kitchen and also added an outside staircase to connect the screened porch to our outdoor patio. We also love adding new accessories and ornaments on our walls, all the time.
The tranquility: close to the woods, with the High Peaks in the back.
The breeze: On all days, a delicious breeze blows through our windows.
Wildlife: The other night, a couple of deers stood barely 20 feet away from us. Hares routinely visit our lawn, and we have pheasants in the back.
Our Great Room: spacious and sun-drenched.
Light: with large windows all around, this is never an issue.
Adirondack decor: with many photos or artifacts from the Olympic Games or from the Adirondacks, we immediately feel at 'HOME'.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house is beautiful, comfortable and very convenient to the mountains and town. We look forward to returning for another family reunion in the future!
Thank you to Lucie and Sylvain for allowing us into your beautiful home. We had a great "Girls Escape". A special thanks for the quick response to our dyslexic abilities with the television controls! Hope to return again soon.....loved our stay. We will highly recommend this great spot to our friends.
The description was accurate. And, I'd say that being there is even more beautiful than the pictures could do justice to. The place was very spacious with large rooms and comfortable beds. The decor/art was gorgeous in step with the Adirondack theme. The kitchen and appliances were top notch and had everything we needed. It was very clean and felt very new. It was a very lovely and tranquil location surrounded by forests. We were very close to town, grocery stores, hiking, Olympic sites, lakes, tourist attractions. We would most certainly recommend this place to friends and family, and when we are back in the area, we would certainly stay here again! The owners are very responsive and provided excellent instructions, as well as tourist info.
Our stay in your home was amazing. The house is beautiful and we all felt as if we were home. It was very relaxing to come back to the house after playing golf and just spend time together in a homey atmosphere. Thank you again for sharing your home with us.
The house was amazing. It was spacious, clean and comfortable. The location was great. It's was 5 minutes to main street and 15 minutes from whiteface mountain.
We would stay at this house again.
We have already recommended it to our friends.
Can't wait to go back.
This house was amazing. It had every amenity you could imagine. I've been staying at different vacation rentals in Lake Placid for 15 years and this was by far the nicest. Well done!
Great location. House was new and in great shape. Owners take pride in their house. Would definitely stay here again!
