Boathouse on Beautiful Lake Placid

wonderful boathouse!

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful boat-in rental. Owners were helpful and friendly. Accommodations were perfect for families with children ages 5 and older who can handle stairs and being on the water. We stayed there during the lacrosse tournament in Aug. 2013 and were grateful to use the owners' boat to get to & from the marina to the boathouse. Quiet, peaceful and gorgeous--right on the lake. Kitchen is adequate for preparing meals--2 decks! Front deck on the water awesome for the family. Back deck with small grill.
