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

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.

Fantastic condo with incredible view

  • 5 of 5

This is not my first visit to Comet Cove but it is the first time I've been there in June. What a wonderful time to be in Lake Placid! Everything from the sunsets over the lake to the loons calling in the morning was magical. Like a scene from "On Golden Pond". I will be sure to come back again and again in the summer.

Absolutely stunning view and a cozy and charming place to relax. Will definitely be back to do some hiking when the weather is warmer! Very close to main street and amenities. Would highly recommend Comet Cove to anyone looking for some R&R.

"Comet Cove" a wonderful setting and every amenity

  • 5 of 5

On our third visit to Comet Cove we were surprised to find a very beautiful 15" of snow on the ground. This really highlighted the view, and the mountains that surround the lake! We could still walk around Mirror Lake, because the sidewalks are plowed and clear. But we most enjoyed the Village, eating at Great Adirondack Brewing, going to a movie at the theater, and walking among the shops enjoying the Christmas light displays that started the day after Thanksgiving.

The condo is a great place to be cozy in front of the fire when it's cold. It is easy to feel right at home. You can tell the owners enjoy their own time there and are happy to share the same experience with us!

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!
