About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath Condo with Spectacular Unobstructed Lake And Mountain Views

Comet Cove is a beauutifully renovated, upscale condo with a spectacular, wide and unobstructed view of Lake Placid and the mountains from the kitchen, dining room, living room and patio. With 2 bedrooms (each with a queen bed) and 2 full baths, along with a full sofa bed in the living room, Comet Cove can sleep a maximum of 6 people, including infants and children. It is ideal for one or two couples or a small family who is seeking a special vacation on the lake.

Comet Cove features a spacious gourmet kitchen, stocked with basic staples, and featuring an eat-on island. Drink your morning coffee or evening wine as you enjoy the lake and mountain views. The condo is equipped with free wifi and cable TV. There is a desk in an “office nook”, a wood-burning fireplace and a small washer and dryer --- all the comforts of home! The beautifully appointed unit is decorated with original paintings by a local artist. There is off-street parking right outside the condo.

This convenient location is a block from Mirror Lake Drive and less than a ten-minute walk to Lake Placid’s downtown and its many fine restaurants. At the Lake Placid Marina next door to the condo building, you can take a boat cruise around the lake and rent kayaks and canoes. Also, you can take advantage of the Lake Placid Free Trolley, which you can catch just a block away. The trolley runs on a continuous loop around the Village, with stops that include the Olympic Center. It also stops five blocks away at the High Peaks Resort, where you can take another free shuttle that runs during the winter to Whiteface Mountain (15-20 minutes away) and points in-between.

There is absolutely no smoking indoors and no pets are ever allowed.

Minimum stay is 3 nights. Exceptions are during Iron Man, when the minimum stay is a week, and during the winter and summer high seasons and the December holidays, when the minimum stay is 5 days.

About Gale Wood/Dave Dewsnap

We live outside of Philadelphia and discovered Lake Placid in 2012, when we bought our first condo (Comet Place, HomeAway #377776), an ADK-themed 3 BR unit a couple blocks from town. We enjoyed the area so much, we bought Comet Cove in November 2014 so we could visit and rent more often. The 'comet' is part of our love story, so it in the name of the two condos we love in Lake Placid!

Gale Wood/Dave Dewsnap purchased this condo in 2014

Why Gale Wood/Dave Dewsnap chose Adirondacks

Comet Cove is a luxury condo located between Lake Placid and Mirror Lake, with a wide, breathtaking view of Lake Placid and its mountains. It is less than a ten minute walk from Lake Placid's picture-perfect downtown, with its many restaurants and shops. We walk around Mirror Lake almost every day!

What makes this condo unique

The view is so spectacular and soothing that many hours can be spent staring at it! With ample parking and nearby shuttles, this luxury condo with its gourmet kitchen is ideally located for whatever you want to do in and around Lake Placid!

Guestbook comments from the owner

From Guest Journal:

"It was our first visit to Lake Placid and we absolutely loved it. The accommodations were extraordinary, down to every little detail. We loved your home and felt very comfortable here. Unfortunately, due to a recent bike crash I was not able to participate in the Ironman but seeing the beautiful view every morning lifted my spirits tremendously and I am sure helped my broken bones heal even faster. (The top of Whiteface was magnificent to see!) So, we say goodbye until next year, when I will become an Ironman."

A true gem!

  • 5 of 5

The reviews don't lie! We were so fortunate to be able to stay in Comet Cove last week and it was a wonderful experience. I can tell you that in all of our years of travel (and hubby and I travel extensively), we have yet to find such a well-organized, well-stocked private vacation rental. We were blown away by Gale's attention to detail in this condo; we wanted for nothing! The beautifully designed kitchen had more than everything we needed to feel right at home. My mother kept commenting on how perfectly organized and stocked the entire condo was! The view and location (approx. 10 min walk into town), of course, are what really make this place shine. We LOVED having breakfast and evening cocktails out on the patio everyday overlooking beautiful Lake Placid! Gale was a pleasure to work with and easy to communicate with when I had questions. This was such a great trip for all of us, made even more special because of the wonderful accommodations at Comet Cove. I will not hesitate to highly recommend this vacation rental to those visiting Lake Placid!!! You absolutely will not regret staying here!

Tranquil Resort

  • 5 of 5

We had two gorgeous days and one rainy day over our holiday weekend. It had been so long since we booked that it was a great surprise to walk into the unit and see how nicely it was set up! I love having a nice bed/linens and clean spacious bathrooms. I LOVED that it was on ground level when you get into the unit (a few stairs down to access, but the unit itself). It was great to have that extra patio space than be cooped up on a balcony! You could watch sailboats practice or race on LP Sunday afternoon. Just a few steps down you could even go on a boat tour. It was also great to be within walking distance to downtown and all the restaurants and shops. Only a short drive to Keene to hike one of the various hikes. The amenities made you feel right at home and I would definitely recommend it!

Loved everything about it!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Comet Cove! We chose to stay here for the view of Lake Placid and the proximity to town, and Comet Cove did not disappoint! It exceeded our expectations: it is close to everything, the view is wonderful, and it is cozy, clean and welcoming. The layout and décor are perfect and we had a wonderful time staying here. We would love to be back someday! Thanks for making our first trip to Lake Placid so memorable!

Wonderful, relaxing get away with a stunning view.

  • 5 of 5

The minute we walked into Comet Cove we felt transported to a place of absolute tranquility, quiet and peace. The secluded location was a wonderful change from the city -- with the advantage of having town amenities within a short walk. Everything in the condo was so well thought out and it was equipped with anything one might might -- especially the kitchen - for a care-free stay. The view is fantastic and we witnessed the most incredible sunset from the dock right next door. I highly recommend the one-hour boat tour around Lake Placid that leaves from the dock. It is so relaxing here and makes for a perfect vacation if you do nothing else but sit on the patio and look at the lake and mountains. The bed was super comfortable. We look forward to returning soon!

A Wonderful Week at Comet Cove

  • 5 of 5

We'll be leaving Comet Cove in the am but just want to thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. The location and water views are wonderful, and the furniture and decorations first class. Although the weather wasn't good we had a fabulous week walking around Mirror Lake every day and exploring more of Lake Placid and it's secrets. We had a wonderful evening Sunday night at the Performing Arts Center listening to the symphony and Cherish the Ladies. We do have some friends here so that made it all the more wonderful!

Again, thank you again for sharing your lovely home...and for the welcome coffee and syrup!

Wonderful condo right on the water

  • 4 of 5

This condo is in a wonderful location. It's right on the lake and within walking distance to downtown Lake Placid.

Four of us were traveling and we had plenty of space. The view from the patio and dining room are fabulous! The only challenge we had was with the mattress in the master bedroom. It's very lumpy and uncomfortable. Outside of that, the place was great!

Thank you, Gale & Dave!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Comet Cove. We were sorry and concerned to read that you found the mattress in the Master Bedroom uncomfortable. It is a new mattress with a pillow top, which can feel different if one has never slept in one. We are heading to Comet Cove soon and will check the situation out the first night we are there.

Lake Placid and the surrounding area are great places for birding, hiking, biking and fly-fishing, in addition to the full range of winter, summer and lake sports. You can rent canoes, kayaks, bikes, etc. nearby and you can fish off the Lake Placid Marina pier and swim in the lake. There's a free shuttle that runs all year around the Olympic Village, with a stop near the Harbor Condos on Mirror Lake Drive. There is even a little garden park across the street, beautiful in any season. We love walking the beautiful 2.7 mile path around Mirror Lake each day we can, a block away from Comet Cove!
