About the property

The Otter House is a new 4 bedroom home, with a large guest suite in lower level

The Otter House is a NEW build home that is the perfect blend of that cozy adirondack experience, with modern touches. It is decorated with a rustic modern style. The home's town location is convenient and walking distance to shopping and the olympic center. But, its uniqueness lies in the quiet secluded location right on the water, with beautiful water and mountain views. The town proximity with a quiet, waterfront location is a rare combination in Lake Placid! You can have it all at our house!

The open concept, great room is perfect for those family gatherings and for spending time together.

About Andrea & Todd

We are a family who loves the outdoors! We have enjoyed coming to different places in the adirondacks with our boys since they were toddlers. We fell in love with Lake Placid a few years ago because there is always something going on here and something new to explore. We love to ski, hike, swim, fish and paddle. All of which are plentiful in the area surrounding Lake Placid. We hope you fall in love the way we did!

Andrea & Todd purchased this house in 2015

Why Andrea & Todd chose Lake Placid

Wherever we vacation, being close to the water is the most important. When we found this beautiful new home and it's amazing location on the peaceful Chubb River, we knew it was the perfect vacation home for us. We just love the peacefulness of nature and then being able to walk to town for dinner or some shopping.

What makes this house unique

There are not many new homes in Lake Placid. It is great to enjoy all the modern conveniences that a new home offers. That coupled with the great location makes this home a rare find!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just spent LDW at The Otter House and could not be more pleased. The home surpassed all expectations by leaps and bounds. Brand new everything, plenty of space and a great finished basement for the kids to enjoy. Our families had a weekend full of hiking, boating and just hanging down by the home's dock fishing and kayaking. The home is walking distance to town, although we didn't make there once because the kids never wanted to leave! Great home all around, we can't wait to visit again! Thank you Andrea for being so lovely and helpful and opening up your home to our families.

  • 5 of 5

I travel alot and have for many years now stayed at a home or apartment instead oh a hotel or resort. The Otter house has been by far the nicest place. It was so well equipped. Andrea& Todd have thought of everything. Beautiful home, quiet location. About a mile from town, nice walk if you choose. Can't say enough.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at this fantastic home. Our group consisted of two families with 5 kids, and we all had a great week. The house has everything you could possibly want or need, and the layout was perfect--we all had plenty of space. The kids loved the basement room with the foosball table, large TV for movies, and easy access to the river and dock for fishing and kayaking. The adults enjoyed the deck and fire pit. There is so much to do in Lake Placid, we did not know where to begin, and this great house is minutes from everything. We can't wait to come back. We have rented various houses through VRBO over the years, and Andrea (the owner), is by far the best to work with. She was immediately responsive to any question I had and provided excellent recommendations. Rent this house--you will not be disappointed.

Great attention to detail!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were an extended family group of 10 and we enjoyed a very relaxing week at The Otter House! We have rented many houses through VRBO in the past and this was, by far, the cleanest, most well organized and most comfortable place we have ever rented! Andrea and Todd have paid great attention to detail. The kitchen had everything we could have possibly wanted or needed; we love to cook and found it so pleasant to work in their kitchen. All the bedrooms were very comfortable and well appointed. We really enjoyed using the kayaks and just sitting outside looking at the river. This home was a wonderful choice for a very pleasant stay in Lake Placid and it was very easy and enjoyable working with the owners!

Lake Placid was home to the 1932 and 1980 Olympics. Enjoy the olympic venues and the opportunity to have an experience like an olympian. You can skate on the outdoor speed skating oval, play pick up hockey on Mirror Lake, try a bobsled, downhill ski on Whiteface Mountain. You can enjoy these venues both winter and summer. Lake Placid is the place to be.

Home to the Lake Placid Ironman, Lake Placid is also enjoyed for its active, outdoor lifestyle of running, biking and swimming. Mirror Lake is a great place to experience all of these for all members of the family.

Nature is around you at every step. With the High Peaks surrounding the area, hiking is a favorite for all ages. You can tackle a small mountain with the kids or conquer a high peak, or maybe all 46. Also, the Ausable River is home to world class fly fishing. Grab your fishing rod and experience the beauty of the Ausable.

If you are looking to experience the natural beauty of the area, within an hour drive you can enjoy The Wild Center (an interactive Adirondack museum) or The Ausable Chasm.
