Great location! Main street and all of the Olympic venues were just a short walk away, as well as Lake Placid Brewing Company. Erin and Josh were both very helpful and attentive to our questions and needs. We will be back!
Great host and an amazing location. We had an awesome stay second time in a row during our winter getaway in Lake Placid. Definitely coming back next year!
We stayed here while my daughter was competing in the 2014 Empire State Winter Games. It is a lovely cottage with all the amenities of home. Very clean, spacious and well-appointed. The only thing lacking was a microwave, but we appreciated being able to cook our own meals when we didn't feel like dining in a restaurant. Erin was a wonderful host - very quick to reply to inquiries, and willing to accommodate us when we decided to come a day early at the last minute to get ahead of an approaching snowstorm.
Just a few things to mention - the entryway door sticks (probably due to the cold), and we did not know about this beforehand. We thought the door was locked and had a moment of panic knowing the keys were inside the entryway. We did manage to get the door open, but it would have been helpful to know about the door ahead of time. Also, the plumbing in the downstairs bathroom is below ground level and therefore has a pumping system. The pump is VERY loud and runs frequently when the toilet, sink or shower in that bathroom are in use. Wasn't an issue for us, but it could be disturbing if someone wants to shower while others are sleeping.
The only other glitch was that 6+ inches of snow fell on our first full day and I had to ask Erin about having the driveway plowed. Erin was quick to make a call and it was eventually plowed sometime the next day, but not until after I had to get out of the driveway in the morning. It was tricky getting out of the driveway with more than 6 inches of heavy snow, but I did manage. I don't fault Erin for this, as it appears all of Lake Placid went unplowed until the snow had completely stopped. Could just be the way the plow companies operate up there.
All in all, we were very happy with this cottage and definitely plan to return. Thank you Erin for everything!
My dad and I stayed in Erin's home for two nights while skiing at White Face. The cottage was very spacious, clean, and homely with all the amenities we could ask for. Erin was a great house, and we would definitely consider staying here again. Don't miss the Lake Placid Pub & Brewery just a two minute walk!!
We stayed at Erin's lovely place over a long Thanksgiving weekend and had a wonderful time. The Cottage is spacious -- there were just two of us but it would be perfect for two couples -- very clean, filled with light and has a marvelous kitchen and entertainment system. the property is steps from downtown Lake Placid, with easy parking, a huge patio and plenty of parking. Erin was a gracious host who even went well out of her way to return an iPad that we foolishly left behind. I couldn't have been more pleased with the property and we will definitely be back!
Erin's cottage was just what we needed for our girls getaway trip! Her cottage is spacious, cozy, with a fully stocked kitchen, and an incredibly warm host! Erin gave us top picks of restaurants and hikes in the area. Her recommendations were spot on, and made our stay more efficient. Erin, thank you for everything!
We had a lovely stay from October 12-16, 2013.
The cottage was cozy and filled with character. It was very clean and comfortable. The king size bed in the master was a plus. The cottage was equipped with everything we needed: full kitchen, large fridge, two TVs, two bathrooms. We ate breakfast in the back yard everyday because there is a very nice deck with comfortable outdoor seating.
The cottage was literally 3 mins from mirror lake, the tennis court, and 5 mins from the Olympic stadium and the busiest part of town. The location was perfect.
We had such a relaxing time here at Lake Placid that we forgot what the date was! And staying at this cozy cottage definitely played a big part.
Hope to come back soon! Thanks Erin!
Erin has a really great flat, beautifully appointed, well situated and great valuie. do go. Daan
Ok - It must be known how accommodating Erin was!! I had a few questions as my family and I were looking at a couple places to stay in the Lake Placid area. In emailing Erin I found that her responses were almost instant. She was extremely nice and answered anything we asked and was very helpful. This was our immediate draw to her place - besides all of the great accommodations that she offers in her listing. When we arrived she met us in the driveway and gave us a great walkthrough of her cottage that was VERY clean, comfortable and inviting. Great kitchen space, upstairs and downstairs and a place to relax outside (all as shown in listing). We have a young daughter so the separate spaces gave her a quiet spot to go to sleep early. We had a great time! Very close to Main street, Mirror Lake and everything you need. Leave the car in the driveway and walk! Thank you Erin.
We just returned from Lake Placid. The cottage is lovely, very spacious, equipped with a lot of extras as apple tv, wifi, outside fire place, great little garden. Its very close to everything - restaurants, shops, Lake and you can start right from the back of the garden. Erin is really nice and helpful, very laid back. We will come again! :)
