Sunburst is the premier rental cottage on Mirror Lake. It is a one of a kind lakeside cottage that has 6 bedrooms each with their own bath. There also is a sleep sofa balcony and 3 of the bedrooms also have sleep lofts.
There is a wrap-around lake side deck with a 6 person hot tub. There is a covered wrap-around porch on the street side with 5 rockers for people watching. A large lawn is available for receptions, sports and games and a Lean-to is available for sleep outs or performances by children.
There are 2 docks plus a floating dock with excellent fishing, swimming and boating access. Children will enjoy catching fish in less than 30 seconds using worms.
There are 5 kayaks, 2 canoes, 1 paddle-board, and 2 windsurfers which can also be used as paddle boards. The beach area also has a fire pit for roasting marsh-mellows and singing campfire songs.
There is a swing located at the beach for cuddling or relaxing reading. There are plenty of Adirondack chairs for rest and watch the ducks, fish, and boaters.
Sunburst is located on the much used popular red brick 2.4 mile sidewalk that surrounds Mirror Lake. Children will enjoy selling lemonade to the numerous pedestrian traffic while Adirondack covered porch on the street side with 5 rocking chairs provides an excellent people watching site.
Our family of six adults and six children spent Thanksgiving 2016 at the Sunburst. We found the Sunburst to be the perfect location for our family gathering. The home is very spacious. We enjoyed the open concept of the first floor and everyone appreciated the joy of having their own bathroom! We found the entire house to be spotlessly clean, warm and cozy. The full size refrigerator, stove and dishwasher enabled us to prepare a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner. Since the house is located directly on Mirror Lake you have an unobstructed view of the lake and surrounding scenery. Just beautiful, and so peaceful. Having arrived in the cold weather we unfortunately did not get to utilize the fire pit, the large jacuzzi and boats. Although covered with snow when we were there, the house has a large grassy yard leading down to the water’s edge and would be perfect for warmer weather activities. Another feature we loved about the house was its proximity to the village. It is only a short walk to shopping and a multitude of restaurants.
We would highly recommend a stay at the Sunburst and we’re hoping to return sometime in the future.

The house was lovely, the bedrooms were all comfortable, everything was neat and tidy. We had a really fabulous time and
our group loved being so close to the Lake Placid Village! Your property is second to none, and we enjoyed being caretakers for the weekend.
Our weekend in Lake Placid for a surprise 70th,40th and 27th birthday party was great! We loved every minute of our stay, your cottage is beautiful and a great layout for my family(11 of us) They were surprised and overwhelmed with the whole setting. It made for an unforgettable weekend!
Thank you for making your home our home! Spacious yet cozy interior and a quick walk or canoe ride into town! I will certainly be recommending the Sunburst cottage to anyone thinking of a vacation in Lake Placid.
Thank you for sharing your Lake Placid home with us. Overall it is truly a remarkable home and we had a great time!! Our family made lots of great memories at the house and especially loved the lakeside scenery, spacious rooms, and fire pit! We will be back again.
Sunburst Cottage was fabulous ! The cleanliness, comfort and convenience of the home to Main Street was ideal for our ladies retreat . The owner made it very easy and went out of his way to accommodate our group. We cannot wait to return !
Sunburst Cottage is the premier rental property on Mirror Lake located at a remote section of Mirror Lake which is the center of all the Lake Placid experiences.
Lake Placid is an all season Olympic area - site of the 'Miracle on Ice', athletic and fitness activities, and the great beauty of the mountains and lakes within a two hour drive of Albany, NY; Montreal Canada or Burlington, Vt international airports.
There is a plethora of things to do regardless of the weather including the various Olympic venues.
Take a bodsled ride year round - you will never forget the 'champagne of thrills'. You can also take a luge ride, try biathalon shooting, watch the ski and aerial jumpers year round, climb local Cobble Mt and pick some blueberries or climb one of the 46 high peaks -become a '46er'.
Watch the figure and hockey skaters year round or skate the Eric Heiden oval or Mirror Lake in the winter. There is a winter bodsled shute onto Mirror Lake that is great fun. Try a dogsled ride.
The Olympic Center has plenty of events including regular ice skating performances.
Enjoy the boating and fishing. Using worms from Sunburst docks it is an incredibly short 30 second wait to catch a fish! The children love it. Roast some marshmellows and sing some campfire songs at the Sunburst lakeside fire-pit and cement some more memories.
Watch all the lakeside action, floral & fauna, loons and stars from the Sunburst 6 person hot tub.
Watch you children put on an evening performance from the Sunburst deck or lean-to.
Use Sunburst's lakeside yard for your favorite games from baseball to frisbee, corn hole to football or croquet.
Relax in tranquility and catch up on some reading and cuddle on the 2 lakeside Adirondack swings.
See some special Adirondack sites like driving to the top of the almost 5000' Whiteface Mt, the Visitors Interpretive Center at Paul Smiths or the Wild Center in Tupper Lake.
There is so much to do it is hard to rank them all. Favorites, other than those noted above, include: golfing -no waiting - with plenty of courses to choose from, boating, biking, tennis, movies, outdoor concerts, quaint shopping in the Village, great in-town dining and barbecues at Sunburst.
Sunburst has no window shades on its lakeside so the morning wake-up is of the thoroughly refreshing views of the Adirondacks mist on the lake, the birds, loons and jumping fish.
The fresh air of the pines and brilliant skies at night result in a very restfull sleep that is a Sunburst bonus. You wonder why this is not possible when you return to the city.
Everything is convenient from the 24/7 grocery stores to the infamous brick sidewalk around the lake just outside Sunburst's entrance. The kids may choose to set up a lemonade stand to take advantage of the traffic or you could sit in the Adirondack chairs and do some people watching.
Sunburst is one of a kind and more than 60% of our guests return over and over again locking up their dates well in advance for the unforgettable memories. Two of our children held their wedding receptions so their guests would have the unique experiences Lake Placid, Mirror Lake and Sunburst offer.
