Beautiful red brick home on huge Lake Placid with large fenced in backyard and white sandy beach. Lake has white sandy bottom and is always warm. Home consists of 2 identicle master bedrooms and a 3rd bedroom with 2 sets of bunkbeds. 2 living rooms with television and a full kitchen with breakfast bar. Large dining room. Screened in patio across entire back of home. Laundry and storage building separate from main house. 2 separate air conditioning systems. All new kitchen cabinets and appliances (2014), new floor (2014), all new couches and chairs in family room and living room.
The house itself exceeded our expectations. The kids loved the sand and dock on the beach. However the amount of Bay Flies left us using the screened in porch as an entrance instead of the main entrance. The house was well stocked plenty of room. Everything we needed was there. The biggest problem was the housekeeper calling several times starting before we leave you got the feeling you were being pushed out.
My family and I loved our entire stay here. We felt like we were home,everything was great and we loved the lake. The dock and water/swimming area was perfect for our children ages 8,6 & 2. Our 2 year old has special needs and the home was perfect for him, everything was clean and well organized, he felt comfortable. We had family stay the night a few nights and there was plenty of room so that everyone was comfortable. This is our second stay here in the past 3 years. The stores are close by and the boat ramp i right down the road. Our family owns a lake lot right around the corner so it was great for the entire family to get together. Nice beach area for the kids, they loved collecting snail shells and fishing from the dock. We tubed, went fishing, caught our own bait, cooked on the grille provided, and played pool on the pool table provided, just about everyday we were there. It was a great experience, our children hated to leave. Our only issue was we paid for a full week and arrived on Sunday 4pm and we had to rush to leave, as the cleaning lady was coming in and we were told we had to leave by 10am Saturday morning. Other then that we had a great time. Definitely looking forward to going back again.
