This charming cottage, four bedroom, two and a half bath home is finished in the Adirondack style. The home is located in the heart of Lake Placid, in a quiet residential neighborhood, which is just two blocks (a 3-minute walk) from Main St. shopping and restaurants. The Hillcrest park is located just steps away with a full playground for children. This house sleeps 10 comfortably. A large screened-in porch, fenced-in yard and sun deck with a gas grill allows you to enjoy some outdoor fun, and don't forget to stop in the outdoor hot tub for a dip! Inside, enjoy the wood burning Vermont stove in the living room or watch a great movie in the cozy den while your children enjoy playing some air hockey/ping-pong in the furnished basement. Off-street parking allows for three cars. The property is semi-wooded with a mix of White Pine, Birch, Aspen, and Scotch Pine. Views of High Peaks to the southwest.

House had everything we needed! 5 adults, toddler and 3 year old. Playground right around the corner. Short walk to town. Very quiet neighborhood. Too busy to enjoy the hot tub,grill or free trolley that stops at the end of the street. Nice to have deck, screen porch and fenced yard and option to walk to restaurants/ ice cream shop/bakery. Property manager quick to respond to minor questions. Suggestion-With toddler would like to have had broom or vacuum cleaner. Could only find small chargeable hand held vacuum but totally manageable! Very clean, nice furnishings and well stocked. Would stay again and recommend. See Lake Placid forum post for the many things to do in the area. Whole family loved our vacation! Thanks!
Thank you. We're glad you enjoyed your stay!
We had a very nice stay. We had 3 toddlers, an infant and 5 adults and we all were very comfortable. The house was very clean. The location was excellent - very close proximity to the village/shopping and a playground. It was nice to not have to load up the kids in the car every time we wanted to go get something to eat or go shopping. We also liked the fenced in yard. We did wish there was a fire pit or some sort to enjoy in the outdoors in the evening. We used the kitchen quite a bit and it was functional however we were a bit disappointed that some basic things one would expect in a house rental like this were not provided - there was only 1 half used roll of paper towels so we had to go buy some and the box of aluminum foil was left empty. It just seemed a bit skimpy compared to other places I have stayed so I would suggest just making sure kitchen basics are stocked. The kids enjoyed the deep claw foot tub upstairs to take a bath but the adults found the curtain/water splashing out during showering a bit annoying. Overall though, we enjoyed our stay and you can not beat this location.
Thank you for the review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. We will remind our house cleaners to remember to restock paper towels prior to each rental. As a general rule, we only provide kitchen essentials (i.e. paper towels, trash bags, dish soap, dishwasher detergent, coffee filters, etc) , but guests are free to use whatever kitchen wraps maybe available from previous renters. Unfortunately, we can not have a firepit for liability reasons, but hope you were able to enjoy the outdoors on our deck, front porch and/or hot tub.
The house is well maintained and a very easy distance to Main Street shopping and food. Parking at the house was also great -- there's enough space for 3-4 cars. We really enjoyed the hot tub and outside deck. Overall this is a great house -- perfect for family gatherings with kids of all ages.
One note, I wish we had brought a baby gate to block off the top of the stairs.
Thank you for your feedback. We do have a baby gate which is located in the basement coat closet. We'll make it visible for easier access. We're glad you enjoyed your stay!
Excellent - as advertised. Thanks guys.
