Wonderful Location -- Year-Round Activities -- Escape to the Adirondacks and Enjoy the Comforts of Home

This home is the ideal getaway for family groups to enjoy together. Discover the convenience of being in the center of the olympic village while relaxing in a quiet and peaceful setting. Escape the hustle and bustle of home without having to isolate yourselves in the deep woods.

Unwind on one of our two secluded outdoor decks. The lower deck is screened and has a porch swing, table and chairs -- nice for evenings with wine and cheese. The upper deck has a picnic table, comfortable cedar Adirondack chairs and a gas BBQ -- great for taking in the mountain sunshine.

Our cozy den has a beautiful gas fireplace and large screen TV. The spacious Adirondack great room has cathedral knotty cedar ceilings and plenty of room to relax and unwind.

Centrally located in the heart of the historic village of Lake Placid.

Leave your car parked in the heated two-car garage while you explore the village, walk to the Olympic Arena, catch the Whiteface Ski Shuttle, jog around Mirror Lake or bike the fabulous scenic mountain highways.

Easy access to swimming (Mirror Lake), biking, skiing, tobogganing and many other outdoor activities. Enjoy a relaxing stroll to dinner at one of the many fine restaurants and pubs in town. Sample some of the award winning micro-brews or savor your favorite wine without having to worry about who is going to safely drive you home. Easily accessible in the winter.

At-home recreation includes: Hot Tub (8 person), Gas Fireplace, Professional Quality Ping-Pong Table, Air Hockey, Foosball, High Definition 42'' Plasma TV, High-Speed Wireless Internet, small library.

SPECIAL IRONMAN RENTAL INFORMATION (Sorry, Ironman rentals are no longer available)

Please note that for an Ironman rental we will require a two-week total rental --this may be split between two visits - a late spring training visit and the actual event visit -- the event visit must end on a Sunday -- most past Ironman athletes have stayed the week after the event. Since our normal rental week for the summer is Sunday to Sunday this is the only way for us not to ''lose'' part of two very popular July rental weeks. Our home is perfectly situated for Ironman -- no parking issues (a serious consideration for this race!) and walking distance to the swim and transition area -- plus a hot tub for after the race.

As fellow triathletes we try to be fair to Ironman athletes while not negatively affecting our peak rental season. We do this two ways #1 - We do not increase our normal summer rates for Ironman and #2 - We request the two-week total rental described above.

What makes this house unique

Location is one of the best features of our home -- we're in the center of the village tucked away in a quiet residential neighborhood. When we visit we walk everywhere and leave the cars behind! Some of our guests enjoy walks around Mirror Lake, a stroll down Main Street or a tour of the Olympic Arena. Other guests (and ourselves) find that our home is so comfortable that they have a hard time leaving it behind!

Great getaway and location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at the Gordon's Lake Placid retreat! We spent half the week with just our family of 4 and the second half with 2 other families. The house was clean, spacious, and cozy. We really enjoyed the location, with a short (but steep) walk into town and great central access to other points of interest in the Adirondacks. I would definitely stay here again!

Completely fit our needs

  • 4 of 5

Gordon's property is perfectly situated to enjoy the village of lake placid. Ample room for 9 guests. Porches were perfect to enjoy the early summer temperatures. Open kitchen on top floor was a great common space for all guests. The climb over the hill to get in to town was a welcoming challenge but we couldn't have hoped to be any closer to the Main Street. Would definitely stay here again. Would rate five stars if we hadn't had a strange run in with the care taker who without any provocation threatened to withhold our security deposit if we didn't clean the house before we left. Owner was courteous, prompt and very clear on house rules and instructions. Thank you to the Gordons for letting us enjoy your property!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on our home. We use the house quite a bit ourselves so we can often fix problems before they occur - in this case we were completely unaware of the situation with the person you referred to as the "caretaker" - we do have a contracted cleaning service but no caretaker. In checking with the cleaning service, a mention was made regarding an extremely late check-out. This perhaps could have prompted the improper statement. We apologize for the statement made by the cleaning service and would have dealt with it previously if we had known prior to your review. Thank you again for staying with us.

Perfect location and home for our weekend

  • 5 of 5

This property was the perfect place to stay for our weekend trip to Lake Placid. The neighborhood is quiet and the perfect distance to Main Street to grab a bite to eat or to check out the shops or nightlife. The place was clean and comfortable when we arrived, and we especially enjoyed sitting on the back porch(es) in the evening and enjoying the mountain air. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

An ideal location to enjoy Lake Placid and the Adirondacks as a whole.

  • 5 of 5

The house was immaculate and we thoroughly enjoyed the game room and the hot tub. Many great family memories are forever tied to our Lake Placid "home away from home". The Gordon's are a wonderful family and gracious hosts!!

The house was great!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time in this house! It was very roomy and comfortable, and the kitchen and dining room were perfect for our Christmas dinner, with everything we needed to make a big meal for 10 people. The house was clean and ready for us when we arrived and the game room and hot tub just added to our fun! Highly recommend this house for anyone's Lake Placid get-away!
