great location, beds very comfortable , our family enjoyed Xmas there.
One item was disappointing for us, outdoor hot tub barely gets to 100 degrees we are accustomed to a hot tub that attains 104 degrees.
Beautiful, Wonderful Family Weekend!
Our family had a wonderful time this weekend- the house, location and amenities were everything anyone needed!! Anytime I phoned or emailed Bill he responded quickly! We have been coming to Lake Placid for years and finally found the perfect place to stay and experience! This weekend will always be one our Family will remember and We thank you!
Great house; great location
The house is great. Well maintained and spotless. Great location on Mirror Lake with nice dock and waterfront views from the living room.
This is a gorgeous property with amazing views of the best part of Mirror Lake - and comfy beds!!!
We had a great time, very lucky with Indian summer weather in late Sept. The several options of boating (kayak, canoe, rowboat, standing paddle boards) made it fun for all, even our dog - who preferred the canoe. The early morning, daytime and nighttime views of the lake were all spectacular and right outside the doorstep. And town is just a short walk away. Highly recommend!
Perfect LP Vacation Rental!
I cannot say enough good things about the Mirror's Edge house. The view out the back is breathtaking - morning, afternoon and night. There are tons of water toys to enjoy, and you can't beat the private lake access. The house is perfect size for 3-4 couples and our dogs loved it as well, with the huge yard to run around in which is mostly enclosed by trees. Bill is extremely responsive and wonderful to work with. We never had the opportunity to meet in person but he was very quick to handle any questions or concerns we had. The kitchen is great and perfect for cooking meals, you never really have to leave the house if you don't want to. We stayed for 2 weeks and it didn't feel like long enough. We cannot wait to go back!!
Your family home is wonderful with the views and outside toys , the water front access. Very peaceful and private The following wher suggestions provided to the owner with no acknowledgement from him
We have a few suggestions that we noted during our stay that would help in making the stay more comfortable.
Master Bedroom down stairs , needs some way to darken as it gets bright sun in from 5 AM . Needs full blinds
Jacuzzi bath , took over 1 hour to fill and longer to drain insufficient hot water to enjoy.
Kitchen set up could use an investment in pots and pans, Baking trays should be tossed as they are stained with crap. Needs larger cutting board.
Dining Since you can sleep at least 8 need seating for as many to dine at table inside and outside
Storage for food supplies Bread ,snacks there was none should have some space to avoid clutter on counters
Lastly all bedrooms need a ceiling fan , with no air conditioning this would help with summer heat .
Some of these issues have been addressed like the baking pans which have been replaced; they had cooked in oil on them and were discolored. Other issues the guest raises, like putting fans in the upstairs bedrooms currently can't be changed but we're looking into it as we think it's a great idea. The jetted tub the tenant refers to is the tub inside the house in the first floor bathroom. It functions as a regular tub, so eventually the water cools down. There is an additional hot tub on the deck outside with great views of the lake and Moose Mountain that seats 6 adults and maintains a max temperature of 105 degrees. The dining room seating easily fits 9 with 6-8 adults at the dining room table and 3 to 4 at the counter. I've had 8 people at the dining room table before with no problems but I understand that this could depend on personal preference. In addition, there is an outdoor table on the deck that seats another 6 adults. As far as room for snacks, there is ample storage in the cabinets under the counter, but space isn't infinite. In addition, we did address the guest's concerns in email exchange after their stay, just not in time for their review. If you're considering staying and have any questions or concerns, please let us know, we're happy to address.
