Photos and Description of this 7 bedroom holiday home in Lake Placid - Lake Placid's Olympic House

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

The ADK Home is so huge many guests refer to it as the "Mansion." This exclusive manor 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 to make sleeping available yet another bedroom that sleeps two.

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 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.

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 but brand new toilets 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.

Local owner's home is close by and also owns luxury condos on the Gulf of Mexico, Pensacola Beach, Florida.

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.

Hidden in Plain Sight

  • 5 of 5

Somehow this delightful house manages to be totally private yet right in the middle of things. Because of its location tucked into the trees above Main St., you are out of the hustle-bustle, yet just a minute's walk to everything. It is a perfect setting for a family gathering; the downstairs living rooms are spacious with comfortable leather furniture. The 3rd floor offers an alternative "hang-out", perfect for kids or teens.My favorite spot, though, was the huge front porch/veranda, with views of Mirror Lake, the mountains and the town. The beds and linens are top quality; each bedroom has its own character and decorations. It is truly a "mansion" in the old style, complete with lovely old pictures and things to look at. Our 4-generation family found it an ideal place to spend a reunion week together and we hated to leave!

The location is incredible and the house is grand yet cozy! Beautiful features i.e. woodwork, furniture, porches and views. Totally worth the rental price! Fully stocked kitchen was a pleasant surprise! Amenities are modern, furniture is antique yet comfortable! Can not wait to rent again with my friends!
