About Jill & Marty Gordon

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

Why Jill & Marty Gordon chose Adirondacks

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.

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!

March Break vacation with family and friends

  • 5 of 5

We came up in 2 cars from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada during our kid's March Break to do some skiing at Whiteface. We arrived on Monday and were pleasantly surprised with our house. It was comfortable for all 8 of us, nicely decorated and the kids loved the games room and hot tub. We woke up Tuesday morning to lots of snow. It didn't STOP!!!!! I couldn't get my car out of the garage because there was so much snow. The owner informed us that the area was under a state of emergency and there was a travel ban so there were no snow plows. We appreciated that they offered us an extra night or two for no charge for the inconvenience .We were happy to be walking distance to Main Street to go for dinner. The next day, Wednesday sometime, the driveway was plowed. The snow didn't stop until the day we left. My husband

found out that Whiteface received over 40 inches of snow. IT was beautiful and my husband and the kids had a BLAST skiing fresh powder. My mom and I spent the days walking and shopping Main Street ( a lot of stores were closed due to the storm )and sitting by the fireplace or around the huge island drinking our tea and chatting. The house was AMAZING!! and I can not complain at all. ( Mother Nature gave us a good show )We would definitely look at booking this house again if we come back to Lake Placid. Thank you!!!!

Lake Placid with Family

  • 5 of 5

We came up with 11 family members for 3 nights and 4 days. The house was exceptional, very clean, nicely decorated and furnished, comfortable for all, and close to Main Street. The game room and hot tub was definitely a plus. If I were to stay in Lake Placid again I would not hesitate to rent this place again.

As great as the house was, Lake Placid was a bit of a bummer. Almost everything was closed. There was no ice skating, tobogganing, snow tubing, skeleton and Whiteface was only 1/2 open.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your exceptional review. Ironically, Lake Placid was experiencing a rare mid-winter heat wave. About a week later 4 feet of new snow fell in just a couple of days. We hope the weather will be more agreeable during your next visit. Thanks again for staying. Jill and Marty

We had a great time in Lake Placid at this house! The kids loved the bunk bed room and loft and everyone enjoyed the game room! Lots of room to spread out and enjoy each other. Thanks - we'll be back!

Great house, excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a long weekend here with family (7 adults, 3 kids), 15-20min drive to Whiteface Mountain. Quiet neighborhood, walking distance to Main St Lake Placid, shopping, restaurants, bars, etc. We loved the house, plenty of room for everyone to gather in the great room for meals. Enjoyed the outdoor hot tub after a long day on the slopes. Look forward to returning!

Great family & winter getaway

  • 5 of 5

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.
