About the property

4 Bedrooms, 2 Full Bathrooms, 1 Half- Bath, Sleeps10

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

College friends reunion fun!

All the comforts needed were here. The beds were very comfortable and everything we needed to cook was available. Grill and hot tub were a nice plus. Walking down to the shops and restaurants was a breeze. Loved the spa at Whiteface Lodge and Whiteface itself. This is the perfect place to gather, enjoy Lake Placid and bond over new memories. Thank you for the ease of rental and kind service. We are already planning our next trip/reunion. What a wonderful time!

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. House was the perfect size of our group (4 adults and 5 kids). Location was great -- we could easily walk downtown. And the kids loved the air hockey table in the basement.

Very roomy and close to town perfect for my group.

  • 4 of 5

Everything was clean and neat, space to park 3 cars. Entryway and kitchen a little tight but got me out of kitchen duty. Great fussball table and air hockey/pingpong down stairs, and if you have a family sledding in about 2min walking distance.

Great house!! Fit us perfect for a family of 5 (us and 3 adult children)! Close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

Would absolutely stay here again (preferably NOT when -21 below)!! Quaint home, well maintained, exceptionally comfortable, great location in town, and close to everything. In spite of cold, here for skiing/snowboarding. Boys went (I bailed due to cold) and Whiteface was 20-25 minutes away at most. Again alittle too cold to jump in the hottub but son's did check it out and water was great - but even the 30 ft from backdoor to tub at -21 was too far to go!! Think that cold was rare so most times you could use it all!!
