About the property

This home is very private and an outdoor paradise, yet close to town!

Welcome to our private outdoor paradise and beneath the shadow of Haystack Mountain! We are also very close to Scarface and McKenzie mountains too, if you love to hike, and the famous Jack Rabbit Trail. We are on 3 acres which are very private, quiet and peaceful and yet just an eight minute car ride into town. Our home is close to great hiking, biking, fishing, hunting and many other outdoors activities. Yes we allow dogs too!

It was built in 2010 and is an Adirondack Contemporary Saltbox style with 3 very cozy bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. There is also a nice loft / office to work from and our A-frame inside allows great views of the trees and mountains outside. Our kitchen is very full and with an adjoining dining room that seats six. There is a very comfortable living room area with a TV to enjoy. There is an outside enclosed porch area which is a great place to end the day and watch the sun come down. We also have a beautiful outdoor porch to barbeque on and sit outside as well. The views are breath taking and the stars at night are amazing, you can almost touch them. There is plenty of parking right next to our home. We also just finished our cozy downstairs theater for movies night with family and friends. We think you will love it here, just like we do!

Very nice, clean and comfortable

Nice place, private but within 5 miles of everything. Great house and property. There were four adults and two kids and foosball table and dart board were lots of fun. Would stay here again

Perfect location, halfway between Saranac Lake and Lake Placid. Beautiful home and very well appointed. It had more extras than any other house we've stayed in. Will definitely come back. Remote but very close to town.

Great property with lots of land and privacy

  • 5 of 5

House was great. Plenty of room, privacy, yet close to everything. Really enjoyed the views and the deck was great for hanging out with the family.

Looks like even more space with updates in the works for the basement.

Rudy and the caretaker were great to deal with. Highly recommend a stay at HH.

Had perfect weather and really enjoyed our stay.

Great space, comfortable private location

Everything was as expected, host was communicative and available. Property was conveniently located for hiking, but also privately secluded from the hustle and bustle of town.

Great place!!

  • 5 of 5

Haystack Hideaway is beautiful and clean!! This house has a country look with up to date appliances and fixtures, everything you could possibly need for a short or extended stay, sitting on several acres of secluded property with a beautiful view of a mountain and just outside of Lake Placid, very convenient to the Whiteface Mountain Skiing and sightseeing. We would recommend Haystack Hideaway for anyone that is looking for a clean, quiet and convenient place to stay in or around the Lake Placid area!

Why Rudy Younger chose Ray Brook

We love the Adirondacks and this property and our home were the perfect blend of outdoor and private living while still being close to town and it's many amenities!

What makes this house unique

Avoid the hustle, bustle and noise of town with a large property to enjoy and mountains surrounding you. Haystack, Scarface and McKenzie mountains are very close as you can see two of them from our decks and their trail heads are minutes away, by car.
