About Laura Eldred

We love the Adirondacks, especially Lake Placid and want to share all there is to offer with you. We hike, run, mountain bike, triathalon, eat, shop, enjoy concerts and theatre and craft. We live nextdoor to the rental unit and would be happy to make recommendations to keep your stay here all it can be.

Laura Eldred purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Laura Eldred chose Adirondacks

Lake Placid and the Adirondack Mountains are a special place and we chose to live here. Laura is a teacher (Grades 3-12 in a school that graduates about 15 students a year!) with a background in Hotel Management and is also a licensed Real Estate Broker. Steve does small job construction/renovations and does a beautiful job keeping our rentals immaculate.

What makes this cottage unique

Location, Location, Location. Just 1/2 mile to Main Street and Mirror Lake Beach it is an easy walk to most of the village. Our nightly rates are less than most major hotels in town. Why not rent an entire house instead of a hotel room?

Perfect place to stay in Lake Placid

  • 5 of 5

The house is well situated, just a few blocks from the center of town, yet very quiet. The accommodations are spacious and have all the conveniences one might want. It is hard to believe that the house is well over 100 years old. the only issue when we arrived was getting one of the two TVs to work, and the owner, Steve, arranged to have it fixed at once. Other than that, everything was perfect. And you can't beat the price!

A lovely family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and well equipped! The living room is bigger than shown in the picture, providing our 4 year old daughter a spacious place to play during down time. It was a great central location to leave from for our day excursions and then to return to for afternoons at the beach on Mirror Lake. The landlord was very friendly and accommodating and my daughter loved playing fetch with her pup. We would definitely stay here again!

All the comforts of home!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a week at the cottage and enjoyed every moment. It has everything and more than is required for a stay. Master bedroom is comfortable, kitchen well stocked, living room comfortable and bright, wifi and cable available, bathroom has full tub and separate shower and two sinks and dressing areas! We enjoyed sitting on the front porch swing and our pup was safe in the beautiful fenced front yard. It is conveniently located and just a short walk to Main Street. There is off street parking which was great. Grassy fields and a small bubbly stream are located nearby. Owners were friendly and located behind the property. Will stay here again!

Quaint old home with original hardwood and molding. Very welcoming and cozy.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the weekend in Lake Placid and had a wonderful time. This home is situated within walking distance of restaurants and shops on Main Street without having to deal with the heavy traffic and noise. The owners live in the home behind the rental and were very accommodating. Overall, we had a very positive experience.
