About Laura Eldred

We love the Adirondacks, especially Lake Placid and want to share all there is to offer with you. We hike, run, mountain bike, triathalon, eat, shop, enjoy concerts and theatre and craft. We live nextdoor to the rental unit and would be happy to make recommendations to keep your stay here all it can be.

Laura Eldred purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Laura Eldred chose Adirondacks

Lake Placid and the Adirondack Mountains are a special place and we chose to live here. Laura is a teacher (Grades 3-12 in a school that graduates about 15 students a year!) with a background in Hotel Management and is also a licensed Real Estate Broker. Steve does small job construction/renovations and does a beautiful job keeping our rentals immaculate.

What makes this cottage unique

Location, Location, Location. Just 1/2 mile to Main Street and Mirror Lake Beach it is an easy walk to most of the village. Our nightly rates are less than most major hotels in town. Why not rent an entire house instead of a hotel room?

Great location and lovely home!

Great house with everything you need to relax. The location was great- we didn't need to use the car once. Very pet friendly and great views!

All the comforts of home!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a week at the cottage and enjoyed every moment. It has everything and more than is required for a stay. Master bedroom is comfortable, kitchen well stocked, living room comfortable and bright, wifi and cable available, bathroom has full tub and separate shower and two sinks and dressing areas! We enjoyed sitting on the front porch swing and our pup was safe in the beautiful fenced front yard. It is conveniently located and just a short walk to Main Street. There is off street parking which was great. Grassy fields and a small bubbly stream are located nearby. Owners were friendly and located behind the property. Will stay here again!

Quaint old home with original hardwood and molding. Very welcoming and cozy.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the weekend in Lake Placid and had a wonderful time. This home is situated within walking distance of restaurants and shops on Main Street without having to deal with the heavy traffic and noise. The owners live in the home behind the rental and were very accommodating. Overall, we had a very positive experience.

Great property with a convenient location

  • 4 of 5

I've vacationed in Lake Placid dozens of times through the years and never before considered renting a house - I might not stay in a hotel again! This property is great for a family and is dog friendly. The owners are wonderful and are right next door if you need anything. The house has large common areas, is clean and comfortable, and has everything you need - including a fully equipped kitchen. A short 10 minute walk gets you to Main Street and all the wonderful shops and restaurants in the Village of Lake Placid. The front yard is fenced, which the dogs loved. The only downside was the bathroom being on the second floor, but that wasn't too much of an inconvenience. The bathroom itself is clean and quite spacious, including two sinks. We will absolutely check on the availability of this house next time we plan a trip to Lake Placid! Highly recommended!

Charming Village Home in Lake Placid

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was truly charming. It was a very cozy home-away-from-home.....everything we needed was there. The house and yard were very clean and well taken care of. The furniture and bed were very comfortable and we were thrilled that the bedrooms had ceiling fans. We brought our dog who really enjoyed hanging out with us in the fenced-in front yard, and he just loved the owners, as did we. The house is within walking distance of the village - convenient to restaurants, shopping, and outdoor activities. We had a wonderful long weekend and hope to do it again and maybe spend some more time with Laura & Steve.

Nancy & Wayne (& Jake)
