The Iroquois LOJ is nestled near the Lake Placid outlet babbling brook in the exclusive Fawn Ridge development right off of Lake Placid's main thoroughfare. Convenient to downtown Lake Placid, Whiteface Mountain and other local attractions, the LOJ sits on a 1.28 acre plot, with an original (retired) 1940 era Olympic Ski run on one side and Forever Wild property on the other, ensuring that the spacious surroundings will remain pristine and undisturbed. Right in the heart of Lake Placid, this 2004, luxurious, 5,400+ square foot, 6 bedroom, 5 1/2 bath Adirondack country-style home has all the amenities you may desire and more, and will serve as an excellent launching pad for your Adirondack vacation. We have taken extra care to make the Iroquois LOJ feel like your home away from home. Indeed, the most common feedback we receive is how the Iroquois LOJ truly feels like a comfortable, warm and enjoyable home, and unlike any rental property ever experienced. Twelve people can sleep comfortably in the six oversized bedrooms, but the LOJ can sleep up to 17 total guests, with a minimal charge for the 13th to 17th person. There are two full/queen sized sofa beds, a single roll-away bed and a portable crib for your convenience.

In the expansive chef's kitchen you'll find granite countertops, a huge island with chairs for six people and all the essential cooking equipment you'll need. The kitchen is newly stocked with service for 32 people, professional cookware, a standard coffee maker, and of course, all the appliances you'd expect, including a dishwasher. You will usually find much of the essential staples, spices and other such items available for your use as well. Outside you'll find plenty of nature to explore right on the property, a babbling brook nearby, a clean seven-person hot tub, a fire pit and a large enclosed sun porch with an outdoor eating area, rocking chairs and a two person swing.

There is also a special Sony all-in-one flat panel TV / Computer in the kitchen that you can use to watch the morning news over a cup of coffee, look up that special recipe for the fresh Trout or Bass you just caught or check the ski conditions on Whiteface before heading out to the mountain. Other amenities include free local and domestic long distance calling and a high-capacity washer and dryer. There are a number of entertainment options included at no extra charge. If you want to curl up on a rainy day, you will find an ever-growing library of VHS, DVD, BlueRay DVD and free on-demand movies to choose from, as well as digital cable (with all the premium and on-demand channels included). The Great Room has a 50" HD flat panel television, and each of the bedrooms has its own HD flat panel television. There is also an Xbox hooked up to the television in the recreation room to quell that occasional irresistible urge to play video games.There are also a wide range of traditional crowd pleasing games from Twister, Trivial Pursuit and Checkers to puzzles and decks of cards and poker chips for your own Texas Hold 'em tournament. In all, we have attempted to make sure that your every need is met and options abound to keep you as busy or relaxed as you'd like regardless of the weather. The six bedrooms consist of four master suites of various sizes, each with walk-in closets and private bathrooms, and two large additional bedrooms that share a common bathroom. There is also an additional half bath for convenience and guests. The spacious Great Room with fireplace adjoins the dining room, which opens up to the three season screened sun porch. The sun porch opens up to the expansive deck that includes a grill, the hot tub and fire pit. The recreation room is the perfect place for children or others to gather and play everything from poker, board games or the X-Box, or just curl up and watch a good movie. There is a kitchenette in the recreation room for your convenience.

I'm not sure if I am doubling my review because I've never done this before....
Just wanted to say that this is a fantastic property to rent! It is extremely beautiful and modern and accommodated several families at once. It was an extra bonus that it gives you the feel of a true mountain cabin. It truly had everything we could think of right down to the fire bowl outside.
Great place for multiple families
We are a group of four families (16 total- kids ages 7-13). This was the first house we have rented (and we've rented over 25) that allowed for each couple to have their own private bathroom! We used an air mattress we brought with us and the available cot and were able to fit everyone comfortably. The basement has two bedrooms and a living area which provided a great place for the kids to play and watch their own tv shows. This allowed for some quiet time for the adults who remained in the main living room area.
The house is located just down the road from a large grocery store and there is a gas station/convenience store on the corner.
The house was very clean and Ed was very responsive to any questions we had. The only thing that might improve the home would be a couple sets of bunk beds in the large basement bedroom. But that is specific to our group's needs. Thanks again for a great week in your beautiful home!
