Lake Placid Condo Rental Photos and Description

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

Comet Cove is a newly listed, newly 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). We enjoy 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 we gave it to the two condos we love!

Gale Wood/Dave Dewsnap purchased this condo in 2014

Why Gale Wood/Dave Dewsnap chose Adirondacks

Our other luxury condo has a wonderful rustic Adirondack feel. It has 3 bedrooms and is only two blocks from Mirror Lake and Lake Placid's downtown!

What makes this condo unique

Comet Cove is 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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

From Guest Journal: "Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. It made my recuperation from surgery actually pleasant. I feel rejuvenated again! It was wonderful being able to walk to town to shop, eat and play tennis daily (perfect for by boys!) The attention to detail at Comet Cove made us feel like we were in our special ADK camp---wonderful atmosphere! I hope we can visit again…the sooner the better!!"

Everything we could want from a vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Comet Cove has a fabulous view of both Lake Placid and the mountains. The owners, Gale and Dave, are very welcoming. They leave the kitchen well stocked with staples so we could easily cook when we wanted to. We shared the space with another couple and found the place very roomy. The comfortable couches in the living room and great views from the dining room made it hard to leave the condo. But, town is only a quick walk away with lots of fun shops to explore. When we wanted to take longer excursions, the view from the mountain was inspiring. Placid must be beautiful in all seasons, but nothing can beat the fabulous fall colors we saw. We will definitely stay at Comet Cove when we return to Lake Placid.

Amazing View and location

  • 5 of 5

Comet Cove was everything that we thought it would be and more! It is both lakefront and within walking distance to town. The condo itself is immaculate and has ever amenity you could need. My children appreciated the board games and dvds which were a really nice touch. The beds and furniture are extremely comfortable and the kitchen is fantastic. The views of the lake can be seen from the kitchen, living and dining rooms. I had my coffee every morning on the outside patio which was truly a lovely way to start the day. There were binders left with menus from local restaurants and brochures for area destinations. We felt completely welcomed and at home. We walked down to the marina one afternoon and rented a boat for 2 hours to take out onto the Lake. It was easy and very close to the condo. We could walk into town whenever we wanted and when we did drive into town, we had no problem locating parking. I honestly could not possibly rate this property any higher or recommend it with any more enthusiasm. We hope to return again sometime!

Another gem in Lake Placid

  • 5 of 5

Well, we didn't think it was possible, but hosts Gale and Dave have managed to out do themselves with another gem of a property in Lake Placid!

We have enjoyed previous stays at their original property, Comet Place, and were thrilled by its charm and location. We decided to change it up a bit and stay at Comet Cove and it did not disappoint! The obvious advantage is the accessibility to Lake Placid and oh, that view! Still walkable to everything on Main Street as well as Mirror Lake Drive, this condo has all of the charm of the original property with a few added extras, such as a 2nd full bath and washer and dryer. Gale and Dave happened to be in town and it was our pleasure to be able to meet them upon our arrival.

If you are looking for the perfect Lake Placid experience, look no further - you will find it here at this very special property owned by a very special couple!

Incredible home with amazing location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Lake Placid and our time in your beautiful home! It truly was one of the best vacations we have had. Comet Cove is exceptional with a million dollar view. It was amazing waking up every morning and seeing sun come up behind the mountains and reflect off the lake. Our kids had such a good time playing in the back and watching the boats come in. We have absolutely no complaints about the condo as it had everything we need and more. The kitchen is one of the nicest I've seen.

So thank you for sharing your condo with us! we are all very sad to leave Lake Placid as the town was perfect as well as the condo

Beautiful condo and place to be in Lake Placid

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at this beautiful place and we are planning to stay there again next winter. It is the perfect combination of updated Adirondack style , beautiful, clean, peaceful and a great view of the lake and the mountains. You will enjoy all the beautiful activities you dream of in Lake Placid and have the peace of mind to rest in a great place so you can start again the next day.

Perfect place for ski weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was beautifully furnished, well-maintained and clean. Much more spacious than I imagined from the photos, my family and I found it very comfortable. We had 5 adults + 1 teenager, it's a perfect fit for a group of 4-6. There is also plenty of storage space available for ski & gear if you are there for Whiteface. It's a short 25-30min drive to the mountain by car or Lake Placid shuttle. Large kitchen was great, with all the amenities of home. Can't say enough about the owners Dave & Gale, they were so helpful and provided details on the condo and local area prior to our arrival. They have all of these insightful little notes and tips all around the condo to guide you during your stay. Great location, view of the lake and mountains right from the back windows and patio. Walking distance to all the shops and restaurants in downtown Lake Placid. My family and I take a trip to Lake Placid at least once a year to ski at Whiteface, we usually stay at one of the hotels in town, but we're so happy to have found Comet Cove! Can't wait to return!

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!
