This Lake Placid home is located only two miles – 6 or 7 minutes - from the village of Lake Placid, NY, but it is surrounded by hundreds of acres of 'forever wild' forest and is located directly on the Chubb River. The lodge sleeps 8 people.

The space

The great room overlooks the wilderness and the Chubb River, and has a wonderful fireplace. Also on the ground floor are a second master bedroom with queen size bed, with a full bathroom that is shared with the great room and downstairs guests, a large designer kitchen with eat-in area and a fireplace of its own, and a beautiful screened-in porch for gatherings and morning coffee The front porch runs the entire length of the house overlooking the river.

The second floor features a loft with two sets of double-bed bunk beds, sleeping four. The master bedroom, also upstairs, features a queen size bed and a screen porch overlooking the river and mountains beyond. The master bathroom, with a whirlpool tub, is shared with the loft.

In the finished basement are a full-size pool table, table games and a wall-mounted 46' flat screen television with cable, a Blu-ray player and a Nintendo Wii. High-speed wireless internet access is provided in the property. Powered speakers that may be plugged into your computer or iPod are located in the great room. There is also a detached one-car garage only a few feet from the cabin.

This is a fabulous getaway for someone who loves the outdoors and likes having a peaceful environment, yet it is only eight minutes to the village of Lake Placid. Great snowshoeing and cross-country skiing in the winter and hiking in the summer. Enjoy the best of both worlds in a true Adirondack setting.

This is a beautiful rustic and extremely well equipped Adirondack style lodge only a few miles from the center of Lake Placid. The indoor and outdoor space was plentiful and functional, the beds were comfortable, and overall the house was very well equipped with supplies, equipment, boats, games, etc. You could just walk in and you were ready to go! Elizabeth was extremely attentive and quick to respond to any questions that arose. The house is very secluded and private as it's down a dirt/gravel road, about 1/3 mile off the main road. And it's the only house on that road. The road's a little rough but doable with any car. The house is billed as a "Riverfront" lodge and it is on the Chubb River. But it's a short walk down a sometime slippery little path to get to the river, which is not much off an issue unless you are also trying to carry one of the two canoes available to use. Once there the river (which was too low the first day we got there but improved dramatically after a good rain the first night) is quite beautiful and it's nice to be able to get right in using the dock right on the property. The only thing that was less than perfect is that there were only two bathrooms, and the shower in the master BR was very small. Overall we had a great experience.

A beautiful setting and an outstanding home. Elizabeth was easy to work with. The home was clean, the beds were comfortable and everything we needed was there. Would love to stay there again.

This was my first Airbnb experience and I can only hope that future experiences are as positive as this one. The house exceeded our expectations. The kids loved the shared loft and the openness of the house made it easy to feel connected even when out of eyesight. The heated floors in the kitchen and master bath were a luxurious touch that made us wish for them at home! This home is exceptionally private while being only minutes away from the shops and restaurants "downtown". We really liked how the main house felt like a great lodge and disconnected from the rest of the world while the finished basement provided a nice flat screen to watch a basketball game during March Madness and a family movie night to keep us wired when we wanted to be. We loved the house and hope to return again!

Elizabeth and Phil's house is simply beautiful -- comfortable and well-equipped. We loved the black bear theme everywhere and especially appreciated the long, winding road to the house (which inspired us to whip out our xc skis and test the snow right when we arrived). Both hosts were also very responsive. For example, the wifi wasn't working when we arrived, but Phil got back in touch asap and patiently walked us through the "fix". Great house, kind people. I'd definitely recommend!
