Taxidermy extreme

  • 4 of 5

Too much taxidermy. Bathrooms are not great. Not full 4 1/2 baths. Mostly good, great porch.

Owner's Response: you can clearly see from the pictures that this is an adirondack house with taxidermy,3 pieces not to much for a 10.0000 sq. ft. house. they should have been able to see that this is not a new house. think they were looking for modern and this is not it

UNBELIEVABLE HOME

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and four adult children had a great getaway to this classic home. There was so much room that we had to look for each other. We had family visit and there was still room. The kitchen was great, with all the utensils you would ever need. The back yard was huge and the back porch was where everyone congregated and there was still room !! Jan and Jim were marvelous hosts and could not have been nicer. The town of Lake Placid is a short walk away. We will definitely be back.

Perfect home for a getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a small family gathering at Jan & Jim's gorgeous home for a long weekend. I cannot express how much we enjoyed our time here. Their home is much larger than the pictures show - spacious rooms and a large kitchen. The backyard is huge, with complete privacy. Views of Whiteface Mountain and Lake Placid from the large back porch (from comfy rocking chairs) are beautiful. The rooms are cozy, very unique and clean.

Working with Jan & Jim to organize the rental was a breeze. They were very friendly and easy going hosts, a real pleasure to meet. We'd definitely recommend this property and we'd love to go back!

A classic Adirondack Camp getaway...

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in August, and loved this roomy house! With its lovely classic Adirondack architecture, as well as the beautifully appointed rooms, it was the perfect place for our family reunion. We loved the spacious kitchen, and had meals on the porch in the lovely sunset evenings while the children played games on the large lawn area. It is in a great location, within walking distance of either Lake Placid, or Mirror Lake, as well as the town sights and amenities. We will be back!

Holiday Tradition

  • 5 of 5

Lake Placid has been our Thanksgiving destination for almost 20 years! Our family has grown from 6 to 12 ( and of course the family dog) and Cedarcrest is by far our favorite location. This spacious and welcoming estate always thrills us when we open the front door. We know we will all have a comfortable, sizable bedroom, a kitchen not only with all the cooking utilities we need but a gorgeous view and space for many of us to be cooking at once. Both the kitchen and dining room table accommodates us all and the living spaces are varied for group tv watching (with a working fireplace) or quiet book reading. Cedarcrest invites us to truly "live" while vacationing with no worries of our grandkids running through the house or all of us coming in from outside activities. The property owners check in with us upon arrival leaving a number where they can be reached and the caretaker is just that: being sure there is enough wood for the fireplace, shoveling, plowing, and sanding if needed. We walk to our favorite Lake Placid haunts, yet at home we feel the quiet beauty of the Adirondacks. Thank you for sharing Cedarcrest!
