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 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.
PLEASE NOTE: We have never asked our guests for a 'review' but recently we added some comments from our guestbook . In our guests' own words, these can be found by clicking the 'Owner Info' tab and scrolling to the bottom that section.
The entire three floors of this private house are yours, along with two canoes to paddle the Chubb River, just steps from the porch.
