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.

Our family loves the Adirondacks and Lake Placid. Lake Placid is a wonderful family vacation destination. Fitness enthusiasts will appreciate the challenging bike terrain, miles of hiking/running/skiing trails and crisp mountain lakes. Explore the beauty that is the Adirondacks and discover why we've kept returning after close to 50 years of visits!
Jill & Marty Gordon purchased this house in 2006
Our family has been coming to Lake Placid for generations. We were regular summer visitors so we decided why not buy our own place in the village we enjoy so much. The home we purchased in 2006 ended up being the perfect for spot for multi-generational family gatherings with plenty of space for all to enjoy.
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!
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend in Lake Placid. The house was well prepared to handle 5 adults & 3 youngsters (15, 9, 2). The kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, matching dishes. Everyone enjoyed the outdoor hot tub especially evenings looking at the stars. The game room with the full size air hockey table, fooceball & ping pall were popular with our grandchildren. Our 9 & 15 yr. grandchildren enjoyed the loft sleeping area where they could enjoy their privacy. The home is large enough so that we could be together & at other times have some alone time.
The home is only a short walk into town, a short drive to skiing & other Olympic sites.
Definitely would recommend this house.
We planned a family weekend to celebrate an early Christmas and attend the USA Luge World Cup-Marty and Jill's home was the perfect cozy getaway! Their home was clean and comfortable, and a short walk to Main Street. It was a perfectly snowy weekend, and still not a bad walk. We hope to be back again soon! Don't think twice about booking-it's a great find!
We had not been back to Lake Placid for six years, after coming for Thanksgiving for 15 years before that. Our family has grown , so, we could not fit in the Chalet that we used to rent. Your home fit the bill. It had all that we could ask for. We would love to come back next year, but see that your family is usually there.
Enjoyed our stay at this beautiful home, which comfortably housed our large family (6 adults, 5 children). As large as the home is, there is still a cozy, Adirondack feel. Wonderful place for a small get-away or extended stay!!
Plenty of sleeping space for our family of 8 (plus extra space). The kids loved the basement game room and the hot tub came in handy to soothe our sore muscles form our active days. Location was good with a close drive to downtown (you could walk it but it is VERY hilly and would not work for my kids to do it alone). We enjoyed a nice grilled dinner out on the deck and noted that the two garage spaces and garage dryer would be even more awesome for a winter time stay.
Located in the Village of Lake Placid in the heart of the spectacular Adirondack Mountains.
