Amazing views from this open floor plan home that offers privacy but is close to everything. Two story great room with floor to ceiling windows and floor to ceiling stone hearth with woodstove. Three bedrooms plus sleeping loft, two full bathrooms.
The floor plan is open and roomy, yet comfortable at the same time. We designed this to be our retreat, so you will find all the furniture to be very comfortable. O.K., we've never slept on the sofa bed, so we can't really attest to that...but the sofa is really comfortable. The kitchen is well appointed and you should be able to find everything you need. We haven't really found any quirks that you need to look out for. Hall linen closet is where we store our personal items. We have a snow removal service we use and they will be along if 2" of snow has fallen.
You are renting the entire house. We do have a locked linen closet in the main floor hall. This is where we store some of our personal items. The laundry room is also locked (sorry)...Joe stores his extensive tool collection here (he is a very accomplished wood worker and has done a lot of the wood work in the house).
Interaction with guests
Please call us if you have any problem during your stay. We will want to resolve them right away! We want you to be comfortable and enjoy all Lake Placid has to offer!
Other things to note
Lake Placid is very safe. We have the added safety of being on a small private road. On arrival, our cleaning crew will have unlocked the house for you. You will find a key on the kitchen counter. Please make sure to leave it at the end of your stay. We had a long term renter whose dog scratched almost every door jam. We have pictures of it, so don't worry if you bring your dog. We know it wasn't your dog that did this. Door will be repaired in late Spring '16.
We want you to have fun and enjoy your time. Whatever that is to you-have at it. We ask that you respect and take care of our property. There is no smoking indoors. We do have an ash tray on the screen porch. If you use it, we ask that you clean it prior to your departure. Please respect the property and the environment and don't litter smoking materials. Make sure to take home all your left over food. We love cocktail hours, so if you must leave your liquor behind, well, we are totally o.k. with that! Certainly not expected though.
We are the proud owners of 3 manufacturing businesses in Watertown, NY. You can check us Our first trip to Lake Placid was for Lisa's 41st birthday - we were hooked! This home was the very first one we looked at after deciding to purchase in Lake Placed. Lisa still dragged Joe to about 40 more! Our love of the outdoors, no matter what season, made Lake Placid perfect for our vacation home. Joe spent 15 years being a whitewater rafting guide on the Black River in Watertown and the Moose River in Old Forge. Many retired raft guides and good friends found their way to Lake Placid and are now locals. We love catching up with them during our visits. Joe loves to snowboard and takes it to the extreme, while Lisa is a lot more comfortable on cross country skis or snowshoes. We feel blessed to live in 2 of the most beautiful places on earth, the Thousand Island (or The River, as we call it) and the Adirondack Mountains (and Lake Placid is simply the best place to be in the ADKs). Our dog, Marley, loves Lake Placid and is always excited to get there and visit her mountain friends. We work hard, play hard and really enjoy spending time with our friends and family. Our favorite vacation spot is anywhere we are just enjoying ourselves. We do venture out of New York and have enjoyed San Juan PR, Isla Mejeres Mexico, Europe and the British Virgin Islands. If you go to Isla, make sure to stop by Barlito at the Marina Paraiso Hotel. Great food and give Tiffany and Brad a big hug for us.
