Lakeside Joy

  • 5 of 5

This house is a delight! It is in the perfect location, facing west for afternoon sun and just across the lake from the village of Lake Placid. It was lovely to sit on the dock at night, looking across the lake at the lights, mirrored in the lake. There is also a sidewalk that goes around Mirror Lake (3 miles around). We loved walking to lunch in the village - only 20 minutes from house. Be sure to eat at The Cottage, great food on a deck next to lake. The house is lovely with great views across the lake. It is beautifully decorated and has everything you need for a truly wonderful visit. We stayed at the house the middle of September. The days were warm and sunny and the nights were very cool. We hiked everyday on the forest trails in the Adirondacks. Our hikes included The Nubble, Cascade Mountain, Ampersand, Rooster Combe and Avalanche Pass/Lake. We highly recommend this house.

Perfect Lakeside Home!

  • 5 of 5

This home is wonderful - it had everything we needed, was very clean, and had LOVELY views of Mirror Lake. The paved walk around the whole lake made for some excellent exercise as well. Wolfgang, the owner, was incredibly hospitable and responsive.

Up for a long weekend for a special family celebration and the Lake House was perfect. We had a large group which was easily accommodated . The house was immaculate, the grounds were beautiful . We enjoyed sitting on the back deck watching kayakers and listening to the loons on Mirror Lake. Hope to be able to go back next year.

Incredible location and layout

  • 5 of 5

My family and my sister’s family met here for a long weekend. The property is only 10 minutes to Whiteface and we had a great few days skiing. The house was right on Mirror Lake, which was frozen, so we were able to skate and walk across the lake to get coffee from the picturesque Lake Placid Main Street. People dog sledding and playing hockey on the lake added to the charm.

The house is a great size with nicely separated bedroom areas that provided very comfortable sleeping arrangements for us all. The kitchen and dining areas were well-equipped and provided great space for preparing and sharing family meals.

The focal point of the main living area was a large fireplace surrounded by floor to ceiling windows overlooking the lake and not a TV (which we loved) providing an optimal space for cocktails, cards and conversation after a tiring day on the mountain.

A loft area with comfortable couches provided another great space to relax in, and the loft TV allowed us to get our Winter Olympics fix at the end of each evening.

All in all, we now have family memories to cherish because of our unforgettable experience at a fantastic property in an absolutely gorgeous town.

Owner's Response: I am glad Kevin and his family enjoyed their stay at the Lake House and took advantage of the many activities offered in Lake Placid. They were very respectful of the house, left it in excellent condition, and also posted a lovely note in our guest book. We would love to host Kevin and his family again. Very kind and considerate people!

Our home in Lake Placid

  • 5 of 5

Our family has stayed at this home since 2001, most summers for two weeks. Our boys and their cousins learned to love the Adirondacks and Lake Placid from our many trips. We have rented other homes (since 1987,) but once we found Wolfgang, we came back to this home.

Wolfgang has been extremely welcoming, and is an excellent host. We met Martine this year as well, both work well with renters.

The home is on Mirror Lake, a clean lake with no motors allowed. Swimming off the dock is enjoyable. The town of Lake Placid is an easy walk. Concerts in town can be heard at the house.

The home is well equipped for a family gathering, with a large dining table and great kitchen and gas grill. We enjoyed s'mores at the fire pit, caught fish from the dock, had morning coffee in the Adirondack chairs on the dock, climbed a couple of small mountains, gathered blueberries and watched our son become an Ironman this year. Our crowd was small compared to some years, but since the house is on the Ironman route for bike and run, it was perfect.

The layout for bedrooms work well, with two on the second floor, one on the main level and two on the ground level. We enjoy the deck (with many flower pots) for meals, reading and watching the lake.

We recently had the pleasure of staying at Wolfgang and Martine's Lake House. Everything was exactly as advertised and then some. Pristine condition, modern, spacious, comfortable. The house has plenty of space to gather as family or friends as well as great places to retreat for quiet. We had great weather, but if it had rained, there is enough to do in the house to keep people occupied. We had a dog and a small child and was very comfy and manageable. The location is hard to beat....2 minute drive to town or a nice walk. We enjoyed the kayaks and fire pit as well as just sitting on the dock. Wolfgang and Martine were great to work with and easily accessible for questions while we were there (how to operate TV, heat, etc). We hope to come back many times and would be hard-pressed to look at another place to stay. It felt like home for the week that we were there.
