Overview

About the property

WiFi in 720 sq ft to make your stay enjoyable, relaxing and convenient

This is an Adirondack style studio apartment with a full kitchen a washer/dryer and a gas fireplace. The space will transport you into calm and tranquility. You will feel relaxed as soon as you step into the building.

We are just minutes from the village, cross-country skiing, fine dining, and Whiteface Mountain.

The apartment is housed in its own separate building in a quiet residential neighbourhood. It has a private entrance and parking for 2 vehicles. It also features a screened balcony where relaxing and dining in the outdoors without bugs, is possible. Looking to have a bonfire? This apartment features a fire pit.

The apartment is located beside our house above our garage, since it is on the second floor, there are stairs (12) to be climbed to enter the building.. We do not use the garage for cars as there are too many other things inside! We will respect your privacy - you may or may not even see us.

If this place is unavailable for your requested dates, ask me about our other properties. A different, yet very unique in its own right, space - sure to please! On VRBO the number is #680006 and new in 2017, a THOW (Tiny House on wheels).

To keep our rates lower we ask that you provide your own bath linens and bed sheets. Bed coverings: blankets, duvets, comforters, and kitchen towels are provided. If you do wish to have all linens provided, we are able to accommodate for an added 30$ fee.

As we do charge a cleaning fee, we give the option to our guests to clean-up after their stay for partial reimbursement . There is a checklist in the apartment to follow.

About Jodi McKinnon

Both my husband and I work in the village as professionals. We love the outdoors and all of the activities that are available here in Lake Placid. We honeymooned in Lake Placid and every year we complete a hike at sunset. The picture above is on Cascade celebrating our 19th.

Jodi McKinnon purchased this apartment in 1999

Why Jodi McKinnon chose Lake Placid

We purchased this property because we loved the location. It is outside of the noise and confusion of the village, but not too far to skip into town. It is close to all the things that we love to do, so often the car stays at home. We are close to running, biking and hiking. Also, the drive from town on River Road is spectacular. As soon as you see the mountains in the foreground, all the stresses of the day just melt away. I feel content when I arrive home.

My husband and I designed and built the apartment ourselves, as well as some of the furniture. Just look at that bed! The primary purpose was for our parents when they came to visit. It would be a relaxing and cozy place for them to stay. When the apartment was empty we thought to offer a unique place for vacationers in the wonderful Adirondacks.

What makes this apartment unique

Do not be swayed by our affordable rates! Our apartment is your home away from home. We have tried to provide a space that is comfortable, quaint and would have everything you would need to make great meals at home. Some guests have remarked that you feel as though you are in a cabin!

Keeping with that theme, we have a fire pit and an outdoor sauna that is available for use. The apartment is not in a basement and the ceilings are high. Want to relax after a day playing in the snow - have a sauna and get the best night sleep! Or perhaps in the fall or summer sit on the screened in porch and enjoy the beautiful nights of the Adirondacks.

If you are looking for a quiet and relaxing getaway then our apartment is what you are looking for.

Cozy and Charming!

  • 5 of 5

We are lucky to have found this cozy and charming place on our return to Lake Placid. We only wish we had found it sooner! Exceptionally clean! Very quiet and relaxing! We loved the log cabin feel! The screened in porch allows one to enjoy the surrounding nature, despite any weather. The kitchen is fully equipped for those times when you want to stay in and cook. Location is easy to find and less than a 10 minute drive to downtown Lake Placid. Perfect for couples looking for a quiet place to unwind and relax. The owners are very responsive and available if you need them, but also respect your privacy. Can't wait to come back!

Perfect!

A Welcoming Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Another wonderful week on Deerwood Trail. Jodi and Neil have created a charming and private space that has everything one needs on hand. No matter the weather, it is a cozy and comfortable place with a screened porch that can make any rain the perfect excuse for several hours of reading. As always, our husky, Anikah loves her perch above the woods to take in all of the red squirrel activity below. It is there perfect location of us to head to my hometown of Saranac Lake to visit, and the views to and from the studio are nothing but Adirondack Splendor! We look forward to returning again next year!

Fantastic Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This studio apartment is beautiful, comfortable, immaculate, and in a great, quiet location.

It's close to town, and also a lot of great hiking, biking, and walking trails. The owners obviously put a lot of effort into making the space ideal for visitors. We loved it and would absolutely return.

Cabin-like feel in Lake Placid

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I came here to celebrate out anniversary. The studio apartment was perfect. Cozy, warm, clean, well-maintained, and looked like the inside of a log cabin. It was nicely decorated, had a comfortable bed, an easy to use kitchen, and close to everything Lake Placid has to offer. We especially loved the gas fireplace! Our hosts were very easy to deal with and communicated well!

Many who visit Lake Placid in the heart of the Adirondacks spend their time in the great outdoors. This comes as no surprise; nature is abundant and all around us. When you visit Lake Placid you can choose among a variety of summer activities (hiking, biking, golf, fishing, paddling, birding, hunting & list goes on!) and then get geared up and head out to play.
