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.

Perfection in Placid!!!

  • 5 of 5

Let me begin by saying what an awesome long weekend escape destination Lake Placid is (just 4.5 hrs from NYC). There is so much to do anytime of the year. Amazing views of the ADK mountains wherever you look, endless outdoor activities, fantastic little shops in town and plenty of great restaurants!

Now on to the accommodations... This house is HUGE, it can fit 4 families with kids easily and you will not feel like you are on top of one another. It’s an old house with tons of charm, very well decorated and super clean. We had a great time hanging out and exploring different parts of the house. First there is a large parlor room with a bar and big cozy couches. Then you have the front living room with a fireplace which was perfect for chilling and playing board games. If it was a little warmer, I am sure we would have enjoyed a longer happy hour on the giant front porch which has stunning views of Mirror Lake. The cold weather during our stay in April however, did not keep anyone away from the outdoor hot tub, where you can relax under the stars. There is a game room on the 3rd floor (yes three stories) where the kids would escape to for hours and a ping pong table in the basement just in case you need to get your practice time in! The kitchen is large and clean with a great layout for preparing meals and a sunny breakfast nook, great for sipping coffee and catching up on current events. Finally, I cannot forget to mention that this house was in the perfect location. We were able to walk to all the restaurants, shopping, Starbucks (for a morning cup of Joe after a run around the lake) and even the ice rinks and Olympic museum which were only ½ mile away. We could not have done any better than this spot.

Special thanks to the owner who was very attentive and even checked in during our stay to see if we needed any supplies and also had some great suggestions for dinner. We will be back for sure.

What more can I say, Perfection in Placid!!!

It’s been said before in other reviews but the location is ideal. I don’t think you could find a better location in Lake Placid. Everything was very clean- floors, linens, towels, bathrooms . Beds were comfortable. We had more than enough towels. The seven kids loved the house and were able to disappear- which the adults appreciated. The kitchen was fully stocked with up to date appliances. There was a zoned, hard wired smoke detector system which were very happy to see. The house had a ton of character and the vibe of an Adirondack great camp. If you want a luxury new build, this is not your place. If you want to step back into turn of the century Lake Placid history, you’ll love this. We would absolutely stay here again.

This absolutely lovely home was such a pleasure to stay in! The location simply couldn't be any better. While it is literally on Main Street in Lake Placid Village, the property makes it feel very private and serene. It was such a bonus to have walking access to all of town as well as gorgeous Mirror Lake and yet be able to feel totally secluded when we decided to retreat to the house.

The home itself is very spacious, clean, beautifully maintained and extremely comfortable and welcoming. It is a large home but with a relaxed, cozy feel and our group of six adults and nine children (yikes!!) had plenty of space and were never tripping over each other. The game room for the kids was a blast as well as the awesome hot tub! We had so much fun walking all over town, shopping, hiking, visiting the Olympic museum, the great restaurants (Lake Placid Pub and Brewery was fabulous and even had a play area for the kids) and the nearby hiking trail around the lake.

At the end of our stay no one wanted to leave! I cannot say enough great things about this property and the sights and activities of beautiful Lake Placid in general.

Thank you to the owners and manager who were a pleasure to work with and so attentive during our stay. Your sightseeing and dining recommendations were right on point. I will definitely be looking to book this property again.

LOVE LOVE LOVE Mirror Lake Manor!!!!! 5 STARS

  • 5 of 5

Lake Placid Vacation Rentals, Mirror Lake Manor, Mea & Ann:

Thank you so much for opening your home to our group.


The group needed "an escape" that was close to NYC/Long Island, and the Mirror Lake Manor house more than provided it. It was family and friends, adults, tweens and kids filling this 1895 grand dame of Lake Placid with lots of fun, laughter, old-fashioned conversation in the old-fashioned bar room, cooking & eating (on repeat, of course!), dance parties (yes, more than one!) and games (the best kind--> we loved finding all the books/games/puzzles for us to enjoy AND the virtual kind--> wifi was great/supported all 20-30 devices!). Every member of our group cannot wait to return to the Manor. Perhaps this time, in warmer weather, and sit on the front porch to enjoy the bustle of the village unfold before us.

The overwhelming favorite things about Mirror Lake Manor, from the under 13 year old crew were:

THE HOT TUB on repeat, even on the coldest days!

GAME ROOM with foosball, and ping pong in the basement!

CLOSE TO STARBUCKS - mere 1/2 block gave the tweens some independence!

BUNK BED ROOM - bunks were all filled!

THE 4 FLOORS - every floor and every room enjoyed!

We cannot wait to return, and intend to do so in the coming months...

Fantastic Place - In the Center of it all

  • 5 of 5

I can’t believe this hidden gem of a town was in upstate NY! We crept through the center of this hip little place to find the Manor House sitting on top of the hill overlooking it all. First time in placid and won’t be our last. We arrived and were greeted by a lovely host, Anne, who showed us around the house and helped us plan our week. All 3 families easily unloaded into the many bedrooms, 9 kids running around claiming their beds, and the adults settling in with a fire, some wine and the view of a lifetime. It took hours for us and the kids to check out (and play in) all the nooks and crannies this place has to offer…and that was before the kids got wind of the hot-tub ready and waiting for them outside! The house was so big yet so warm and cozy it completely felt like you were back in a different era (but with all the tech-needed upgrades). Walking downstairs to Starbucks, 46 Peaks Deli, close to the Olympic Center, the exceptional Lake Placid Brewery, and the full views of the sunrise over the lake made this an extremely enjoyable place to stay. We highly recommend and will definitely be back again!

Historic charmer in Lake Placid

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Mirror Lake Manor House. The home is warm and inviting and it was the perfect place for our group of 15 to relax and play . The bunk bed room , game room and ping pong table were instant hits with the kids. The parents loved the many roomy living rooms where we connected and relaxed. As a group with 9 children, the proximity to Main Street and it’s fantstic shops and dining offered us daily walking adventures. We cannot wait to return to Mirror Lake Manor House.

It’s truly a home to remember.

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.
