Interaction with Guests
We always like to greet our guests and give them the ins and outs of their space. If for some reason we can't be home the door is unlocked and you can make yourself at home until we get back. We love to have conversation and get to know our guests. We also respect peoples privacy and have no problem with that. We are very easy going and want your experience to be exactly what you came to Lake Placid for.
Our neighborhood is very safe and quiet. It is residential with lots of space and trees between homes. Many guests comment on the fact that they were surprised at how quiet it was. I am an avid gardener and have beautiful flower beds and boxes providing candy for the eyes.
We are 2 miles outside of the Olympic Village. To get around the area it is best to have a vehicle, but we have had guests who did not have one. Cabs are available and several places in town rent bicycles. Their is a bus that comes to the area and a train that comes to Westport. If you use the train, a shuttle will bring you to town. We have a variety of area information along with hiking books available. We are familiar with most restaurants and can point you in the right direction.
If you use the kitchen to prepare meals, we request that you leave it clean.
Checkin and checkout time are flexible and depend upon arrival or departure of other guests.
We had a great time staying at Leslie and Charles' place. Charles was a great host and immediately made us feel welcome and at home. On arrival, Charles walked us through a map of the area and provided recommendations for restaurants. As a consequence we had nothing but excellent meals during our stay. The room and bathroom were as advertised - very clean and comfortable. The bed is great (and I am fussy about beds). It was not too hard, not too soft - just right! We'd love to stay again next time we are in the area. Highly recommended.
Leider haben wir Leslie nicht kennengelernt, sie war auf Reisen. Doch ihr Mann Charles hat sie sehr gut (website hidden) war große Klasse. Er war immer da, zuvorkommend und hilfsbereit. Sein Kaffee war sehr lecker, die Unterhaltungen über das Schulwesen und die Schüler in den USA sehr anregend und die Tipps für die Aktivitäten hervorragend. Seine Begeisterung für Montreal, hat uns bewogen diese wunderschöne Stadt kennenzulernen. Alles im Haus und der Umgebung haben wir wie in der Beschreibung vorgefunden. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.
Leslie and Charles were wonderful hosts and we really look forward to staying with them again. Their home is very close to the shops and attractions in Lake Placid but tucked away in a quiet neighborhood where you can really see the stars at night. We were in town for hiking one of the high peaks and found it very accessible to the trail head. The room we stayed in was immaculately clean and the bed extremely comfortable. The bathroom is shared but they never book over a capacity that would make you wait in line.
This was a great stay, very convenient with a nice room and bathroom right next door. Definitely would stay with Leslie & Charles again!
Upon arrival we were welcomed by Leslie and Charles who were very nice, the show us the room and the bathroom. The room was as expected and the same as the pictures. We felt at home and Leslie and Charles gave us good recommandations on hikes, restaurants and what to see around. Leslie and Charles's house is very lovely and Darwin, the dog, is nice to be around even if you're like me and you're not feeling 100% safe around a dog. The house is located in a quiet neighbourhood where you can really relax. Also it's very close to Lake Placid center and conveniently located for all activities around.
We had the most wonderful stay with Leslie and Charles while we were visiting the area for a wedding. They were extremely welcoming and accommodating. They shared suggestions on great areas to hike, as well as all the good spots to eat in town. They went above and beyond as hosts - Charles gave us a ride to dinner nearby one evening, and they alerted us to a flat tire on our car, pumped it up, and directed us to the nearest repair place in town. The room was spacious, and the bed very comfortable. Would highly recommend, and hope to be back soon!
We enjoyed our stay. The room was clean and comfortable. Leslie and Charles were great hosts with interesting information about the area. The king bed was very comfortable as Leslie had promised. After our 15mi hike up Mt Marcy, that was important. The neighborhood was quite and the stars were amazing at night. Located minutes from the restaurants in Lake Placid and about a 15 minute drive to the trail head, it was a great choice for us.

I am an avid gardener, both flowers and organic vegetables. I grow most of my vegetables at the Community Garden and some at home. I love to cook and enjoy the flavors of my home grown veggies. I am an emerging artist in print making, studying and practicing at the local BluSeed art Workshop, North Country Community College and Mesa Art Center in Arizona. I have a creative soul and have enjoyed creating the dorm/loft living space. My husband, Charles, is a part time college professor and published writer. Sometimes you can catch him performing his poetry at one of the local venues. We love foraging in the woods for eatable wild mushrooms. Our new avocation is being host of our airbnb guests and sharing our love and knowledge in this beautiful part of the world.
