Lake Placid Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful Waterfront Cottage

Three bedroom cottage five miles by boat from the village of Lake Placid. Three bedrooms a modern kitchen and a great room make for a comfortable stay. The spacious decks on the cottage and on the included boathouse provide spectacular views of Whiteface Mountain and the Sentinel Range. An outdoor grill that uses both charcoal and wood along with the microwave and full range in the kitchen make for fun meal preparation. The fire pit makes for a great way to sit around in the evening.

About John Lansing

I am a retired CPA and my wife, Mickey, a retired school nurse. We moved to Lake Placid in 1969 and raised our three children there.

John Lansing purchased this cabin in 2011

Why John Lansing chose Adirondacks

This property is located next door to our own camp and at one time had been part of a music camp owned by my father. When it came on the market in 2011 we decided to buy it and turn it into a vacation rental property.

simply perfect

  • 5 of 5

We were offered nature, a magnificent view bringing our eyes rest, the lake at the doorstep inviting us to swim, humming birds on the balcony offering silence, in short it made our family reunion perfect. In addition to that, a wonderful host, a perfect location, a very well furnished cabin.

This was our second year at Cedarview. The cottage is in a great location and very clean. It was the perfect size for our family of 6. Beautiful views from the deck of the boathouse. We loved staying here and will definitely be back. John is a great host.

Our visit to Cedar View Too was magnificent. We spent most of our time on the dock, in one of the boats, swimming, or just laying around on the gorgeous boat house deck. The deck has sublime views of the north end of the lake, Whiteface Mountain, and the surrounding landscape. It is the perfect place to watch the sunrise or to stargaze on a clear night. I found that under the canopy on the deck was an excellent nap spot. Inside, we found the house to be comfortable and clean; we all slept like babies. We had forgotten how dark and quiet it was at night away from cities!

The house itself is mostly shady and once the windows and doors are open it has wonderful air movement. I was hesitant to book a place for a week in August without air conditioning, even in the Adirondacks, but although it was hot and sunny most of the week, the house stayed quite comfortable.

We had never vacationed at a spot with boat-only access, and didn’t know what to expect, but it ended up being both easier and lovelier than we imagined. John and Mickey have very thoughtfully tacked the boating rules and regulations for Lake Placid up on the wall of the boat house, and they came in handy. We found the north end of the lake to be quiet, but as you get closer to the marinas, it can be busy (but not bothersome), with everything from water-skiers to groups paddle boarding across the lake. If you don’t have much experience in driving a boat, we found that renting one out earlier in the summer to practice, as well as taking a few online boating courses, was very helpful. Kyle, who works at the village marina in Paradox Bay, was very friendly and gave us a lot of useful tips. By the time we left we fell in love with boating, and my wife quickly became an expert in docking and undocking.

Cedar View Too provide us with the most relaxing vacation we’ve had in years, and we wouldn’t hesitate to come back!

Amazing vacation! All the amenities of home with a tasteful flair of a rustic cabin in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

John and Mickey have a treasure in the mountains. The lake is one of a kind; pristine water surrounded by amazing views of the mountains. Great family vacation that encompassed fishing, hiking, boating, an occasional boat ride to town, relaxing by the campfire and on the boat deck. We had gorgeous views from sunrise to sunset, and even had a bonus full moon rise and shooting stars.

This little treasure is stocked with all the basics including paper products, dish soap, towels, sheets, cooking utensils and dishes. It also has a wifi booster and satellite tv, however we never turned it on (and we have two teenagers!!) The boat garage is great. We brought our own boat and John was very helpful with moving things around for us. There is also a paddle boat, canoe and a rowboat. We enjoyed campfires every evening. The wood is ready for burning and the campfire sticks are ready to cook your hotdog or marshmallow. The town of Lake Placid, which is within walking distance from the marina, has a unique contemporary feel yet it's simple and quaint. Lots of great shopping and restaurants.

Overall, this was the most relaxing vacation our family has taken. There is plenty to do and enjoy and John and Mickey are so helpful. This is definitely a repeat vacation we can't wait to take again.

Excellent stay

Wonderful camp with picturesque views of Lake Placid and Whiteface Mountain. The cabin is charming and the deck is the perfect place to spend the day. John was patient and helpful during our stay and was a thoroughly gracious host. We look forward to returning!

Great week!

  • 5 of 5

John and I have been acquainted since the 1950s when I had the privilege of spending six summers at the wonderful music camp, Undercliff, because my parents worked there. I wanted my grandsons to see this beautiful spot in the Adirondacks. Both boys had a blast with John's paddle boat and tubing behind the family boat. One launch was sufficient for the entire week, thanks to the use of John's awesome boathouse and a slip at Paradox landing. The well-supplied cabin was perfect for the six of us. The view of Whiteface from the boathouse deck is magnificent. We loved watching the classic Chris Crafts on the lake. John greeted us with a personal touch and made us feel very welcome. He and his wife were available but unobtrusive and went above and beyond to make us feel at home. We will be returning in the near future.
