Great House, Great Location, Great Owners
This place was perfect for our family get together to celebrate our parents 70th wedding anniversary. So close to town yet secluded amongst the trees. The sand volleyball pit was a pleasant surprise as the kids and adults got plenty of use out of it. The house is very spacious with so many unique areas to hang out in our group of 21 (15 adults, 6 kids) never felt cramped. It's nice that there are so many bedrooms (with really comfy beds and linens) and bathrooms that there was never a wait and everyone had a place to sleep. Being an older house it has its charms, like trying to figure out which light switch operates which lights. The appliances, cookware, and grill are all fantastic. We ate all our meals at the house and never ran out of plates, bowls, or silverware (although we did give the dishwasher a workout). The people that manage this property are a joy to deal with. The communication before, during, and after was excellent. I would not hesitate to recommend this place or any other that they manage. This house and my overall first experience with HomeAway was far better than I ever imagined it would be.
Amazing home for large family
This home was fantastic for my large extended family. Plenty of space for everyone and very convenient to the town and other adventures in Lake Placid. The home was clean, organized and extremely well maintained. The backyard was fantastic for everyone to play Volleyball and Badminton. There is also ping pong table in the basement for nights. Overall, it's an awesome house for large family get together. The owner/property manager was very nice and helped with any queries I had.
Had a great time at this rental house. We had 4 families stay here and there was plenty to do for the kids and adults as well. There were all kinds of games and the hot tub was enjoyable! Close enough to walk to the village. Great outdoor patio with lots of space for the kids to play. We just loved it here!
AWESOME RENTAL HOME, GREAT FAMILY RENTAL.
We have been coming to Lake Placid for the past 10 years. The S. Claus Family Lodge is indeed the best rental . This great home does have sleeping accommodations for 25. Fits our family perfectly. Along with two 80 inch TV`s - two family rooms and all the amenities that one would want, it has an amazing outdoor area. There is a volleyball/bad mintten court, horseshoe, croquet , sandbox and swingset, fire pit and Grill and hot tub. There is a ping pong table is the finished garage, if the weather is not friendly. The location is great. You can wall to Main Street, Mirror Lake and Lake Placid.
Love This House
Our family was 25 so we didn't think we could find a house that would sleep all of us and be close to the Village. BUT we found one! And the price was affordable. (I hope they keep it that way) The outdoor amenities were super. WE had 9 kids under the age of 10 and they were kept busy! We adults played volley ball and then went into the hot tub at night. We had a blast. The kids played in a playhouse/swingset for hours and they loved it. The owners were terrific. We will be back.
Awesome place for a family get together!
We had 23 people adults and children and there was plenty of space for everyone! The kids enjoyed the Ping-Pong, volleyball, badminton while the adults hung out at the beautiful fire pit and hot tub. We cooked outside, played horse shoes, and made great memories! I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a group getaway. Its also close to town, we walked there a couple of times with the kids to get ice cream! Booking next year again!
