About Mark Mac Donnell

We enjoy the outdoors, particularly having a location in the adirondack's which gives us full enjoyment of all the different seasons. Lake Placid offers us that and so much more.

Mark Mac Donnell purchased this condo in 2013

Why Mark Mac Donnell chose New York

After many vacations and traveling to different areas, we found Lake Placid to be the most relaxing, enchanting location of all. Within Lake Placid, we found the Whiteface Club & Resort to offer the most of what Lake Placid has to offer.

What makes this condo unique

At the resort, you have access to restaurants, grocery/beverage delivery service, tennis, golf, swimming and so much more. Cross country ski trails are located on site. Downhill skiing is a short drive away located at Whiteface-the Olympic Mountain.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

This home is gorgeous, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay! My husband and I brought our three teenagers, and each of them brought a friend. There was plenty of room, the condo was well-equipped and the furnishings were beautiful.... the pictures the owner has on VRBO are true to what the place actually looks like, yet there are so many lovely details that the photos couldn't capture. I would call the decor lodge-like, upscale and appropriate to the location. Most importantly to me, however, is that the condo and property were very, very clean!

Speaking of the location, it's really perfect. The view is of the lake, Whiteface Mountain and the marina, and is just beautiful. The gardens are charming and well-maintained and the food at the restaurant was very good. It's a short walk to the marina where one can rent kayaks, and there's an area for swimming that's roped off. There were people of all ages staying on the property.... families with young children, teens and then older adults as well.

I would definitely recommend taking the short drive into town, which is right on the lake, and if you're there on a Tuesday night in the summer, live bands play on the water with music that appeals to all ages. Bring a cooler or picnic basket and chairs....you'll have a really good night! We ate at a few restaurants and didn't have a bad meal. In particular, there's a place called the Creperie (spelling?) that I would highly recommend.

In terms of physical activity, there's a lot to do. We rented kayaks, went tubing, swimming and fishing, and also took the hour and a half drive for a day of white water rafting. There are several mountains to hike for all skill levels. We are beginner to intermediate hikers, so we climbed Mt. Jo and Cascade. I'd recommend both, with Mt. Jo being the easier of the two.

I'd also like to comment on my experience with Mark, the owner. From the first inquiry I sent him through VRBO, he was responsive, professional and easy to deal with. I had lots of questions and he always got back to me within an hour or so. He provided his cell number and was very accommodating when I needed to call him for help because of a technical issue I had online. He provided thorough instructions and truly wanted to make sure we had a great experience. Finally, I got my deposit back about a week after I got home!

I would highly recommend staying at this condo, as you will definitely not be disappointed! Thank you for everything Mark!

Exceeded my high expectations

  • 5 of 5

I loved this house and its location. The house has lots of room. Is beautifully furnished and equipped. The owner communicated well with us all along and was very friendly and helpful. The view is wonderful, overlooking the marina, lake and hills beyond. It was very conveniently located for us as we were back and forth to the Lake Placid Lodge for a wedding. I loved walking down to the water for my daily swim after wedding prep. I will have to come back for a true vacation and take full advantage of those Adirondack chairs! Thank you Mark.

Excellent getaway at Lake Placid

  • 5 of 5

We spent our Victoria Day long weekend at Our Lake view lodge. It's very conveniently located away from the town and still within reachable distance. The condo was better than what we expected..the location, the decor...

Mark was very responsive. We enjoyed our stay at this place and would want to go again!

The property exceeded our expectations the minute we walked in the door!

  • 5 of 5

This trip to Lake Placid was nothing but brilliant as our condo was the perfect home base for our guests that stayed with us and visited us while we were here. The furnishings and accessories were beautiful and appropriate and the condo was exceptionally clean and comfortable. Sometimes you never know exactly what you are getting into when you rent private homes, in this case it was awesome. I would highly recommend you select this property if you plan on staying in Lake Placid!
