About the property

7 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Large Gourmet Kitchen, Grand Front Porch above Main St

This ADK Home is so huge many guests refer to it as the "Mansion." This exclusive Olympic home is all about comfort, style and LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!

Everyone boasts a 'short walk' to town...but Lake Placid's Olympic House sits 'ON' Main Street of the Lake Placid Village. Nestled within a grove of tall Pines, Birches and Cedar trees, it has a private feeling yet you are just steps away from this awesome village and a stones throw away from beautiful Mirror Lake. The Lounge has a beautiful carved bar, sitting below a huge flat screen TV. Large comfortable over stuffed furniture ready to sit back, have a beer, iced tea or just snuggle up and read a book on. The adjacent living room houses an authentic brick ADK fireplace ready to light for your enjoyment. The large fully appointed dinning room easily seats 12+ with place setting for 20. The modern kitchen houses brand new Whirlpool gold dishwasher, refrigerator, stove and microwave. With a breakfast area and digital flat screen TV for morning conversations over coffee. The kitchen has a back stairway that will take you right up to the second floor bedrooms and one more flight up takes you up to the upstairs game room complete with a mini fridge, large flat screen TV, Foosball table and really comfy large leather sofa and love seat. On the same floor, there is a modern, clean full bathroom and more sleeping available yet another bedroom - number 7 - with two twin pillow top beds.

Outside there is a HUGE front porch, a 6 burner Weber grill, an outdoor pingpong table, a volley ball net.. and a brand new 10 person hottub! There is something for every one.

This historic and beautiful Olympic home features 7 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, a fully equipped and modern kitchen, a living room with a working fireplace, a dining room that seats 10, a family room with a foosball table, 47inch HDTV, children's/young adult book collection, puzzles and games galore, comfortable leather sofas, reclining reading chair and views of the town, Mirror Lake and the Adirondack Mountains including Whiteface.

From the grand front porch, you and your family will have a front row seat to the village of Lake Placid, where you can watch parades, marathons, town events etc. Of course, beautiful Mirror Lake and the ADK High Peak Mountains are directly in front of you for your viewing pleasure.

The 7 bedrooms include 2 kings, 3 queens, 1 full with 3 twin bunk beds(1 with a full bottom bunk) and 2 twin beds. All of the bedding is 600+ thread count cotton and all beds have cozy pillow-tops, so you have luxurious and comfortable sleeping accommodations. There are deep closets, extra blankets and pillows in every bedroom. There are fans and air conditioners in every room as well.

The bathrooms are all well equipped with soft plush towels and new showers. For your convenience, there are hair dryers in all of the bathrooms. The original pedestal sinks and faucets have been left for historic appeal, and an original claw foot tub with adapted shower . Brand new toilets and showers have been installed along with tiled floors.

There is a large BBQ grill on the front porch and plenty of outdoor chairs and a table to enjoy warm weather outdoor dinners. Also, there is a 2 car garage and a large driveway that supplies ample parking for up to 4-5 vehicles for use during your stay - especially nice during the winter months. During the summer we have 3 bike racks (will hold 4 bikes each) for those cycling enthusiasts.

Local owner's home is close by.

This was my favorite house in Lake Placid.

  • 5 of 5

Our multifamily group all loved this house. Old world elegant and so Adirondack... it was an amazing house. 7 large bedrooms. Multiple areas to spread out the family for fun. Right in the middle of town but with privacy sitting on the hill overlooking the village. Clean. Comfortable. Fun place to stay at. I have never stayed at a place as nice as this in Placid.

GreAt house very comfortable. Right in the middle of town. Had a triathlete camp here. No one even needed to move their cars. Walk to everything. Owner is fantastic and very accommodating. Rented it again for next year. Thank you for a great experience

Photos online do not do this marvel justice, beyond gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

Absolute gem, unless you're headed to Whiteface, park your vehicle for the duration of your stay. Walk to all your shopping, eating, and hydration stations. We had (12) in our group, and home provided plenty of space and energy in each room.

Perfect home!!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house to celebrate my father's birthday with family, and we all had a grand time!! When we walked into the kitchen there was a welcome letter and a little box of chocolates awaiting us. This house is literally steps from the sidewalk of main st., and yet the trees surrounding the property give you a sense of privacy. We spent a lot of time sitting out on the deck grilling or just watching the people below us. The house has such character with its dark wood and antique finishings-we were all in love with it! The owners decorated it beautifully and supplied it with more amenities than we could ask for. We had so much fun, and will definitely be coming back here next year!! I 100% recommend this to everyone.

My husband and I rented this beautiful house for our immediate family to stay when my daughter was getting married in Lake Placid. It was perfect for everyone to be able to enjoy the visit and to host a large dinner for the family. The location couldn't be more perfect. If you like old homes with lots of character, you will love this house. The only challenging part for us was navigating the snow and ice in the driveway with elderly parents - that's pretty hard to avoid at that time of the year! We were thrilled and so glad we chose this lovely home instead of getting hotel rooms.

In the heart of Lake Placid

  • 5 of 5

We had a truly phenomenal stay here! I can't say enough about the location...in the morning, I could walk 20 steps to the coffee shop, then cross the street to shop at the bookstore. In the afternoon, my husband and I would take a 5-10 minute walk to the public. It was awesome to be so close to everything! We could just park our car and walk everywhere.

The inside of the house is gorgeous...all antique and antique-style furniture, original woodwork, oil paintings...yet modern where it needs to be...blue ray players, HDTV, updated kitchen appliances. The beds are oh-so-comfy with high-quality linens, and we found the living room couch superb for our movie night in.

This is the perfect place to stay for a large family, or a group of friends / couples, that wants to enjoy everything the Adirondacks has to offer. Everything in Lake Placid is accessible by a short walk, and it's just a quick drive to some awesome hiking and skiing. It's especially great for history buffs or fans of Downton Abbey...I may have insisted that my husband refer to my as "Lady Julia" during our stay.

The Olympic House has it all, plus the very sought after LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!!!!!! Everyone boasts a 'short walk' to town...but The Olympic House sits 'ON' Main Street of Lake Placid Village. You are literally just steps away from this awesome village and a stones throw away from beautiful Mirror Lake.

Spring, summer, winter and fall, the location of The Manorhouse is awesome. For the kids and family, the village of Lake Placid offers unique shopping along with outlet shopping, wonderful restaurants and many cultural activities including music, theatre, film and family productions. The famous Santa's Workshop is just minutes away. Right next to the North Pole is Whiteface Mountain. There are a variety of outdoor sports for the whole family to enjoy, such as fishing, kayaking, hiking, snowshoeing, skiing, cross country skiing, bob sleding and ice skating to name a few.

Local owner with 24/7 accessibility during your stay if you require.
