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 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!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Great location. Walked into the town for dinner Friday and Saturday nights, even in the 10degree weather it was so close. House was clean and every room had lots of seating. Would definetly rent again when we return.

Charming, clean, convenient and with a wonderful hot tub too!

  • 5 of 5

Our group, of 7 adults and 1 child (12 yr. old) enjoyed 3 days in this wonderful location. During our stay, we unfortunately lost power as did the entire town of Lake Placid, when wind, rain and snow brought down many trees and power lines. It was almost 19 hours (from 3:00 pm - 10:30 am) before power was restored. Fortunately the house remained reasonably warm during that time. The hot tub, wood burning stove, decorative candles and outdoor gas grill provided alternate sources of heat and light. The caretaker, who was very accessible by phone/text, stopped by early the next morning to provide additional logs and shovel the walks. The common rooms were spacious enough to accommodate all of us but there were also alternate spaces for people to enjoy. Although the power loss disrupted our plans somewhat, this was an ideal spot to weather the inconvenience. I would definitely return and recommend to friends.

Beautiful well kept home conveniently located

  • 4 of 5

I would really rate this a 4.5 star. We enjoyed a mid December weekend with our daughter and 4 of her friends to celebrate her Sweet 16. The home is nicely furnished and very clean. The wood stove was a nice cozy touch. The house is configured in a way that allows separation among the guests so you can have quiet time if that is what you want. The only improvement I can think of would be a second tv, maybe in the basement where kids could watch a movie if adults are using the den. It was very cold while we were there and the girls wanted to hang together at the house in the evening but ended up watching a movie on a laptop. The bedrooms are nicely separated from the living spaces so if some are sleeping others can be up and about without disturbing them. A beautiful home in a great community, we loved it!

Great house for family stay

  • 5 of 5

Lots of nooks and crannies to relax in. The weather was beautiful enough that we were able to sit on the deck to watch the kids in the hot tub. Great that there were lots of beach towels provided as the adults also joined in! The kids also loved the air hockey/ping pong table and took advantage of the park located nearby. Didn't even get a chance to sit on the large front porch! Great location, nicely furnished, and well stocked. Highly recommend
