About the property

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Enjoy the Adirondack lifestyle in one of the original Lake Placid Club Cottages. Elms Cottage was built in 1926 and retains its original charm with its pine hardwood floors, screened porches, stone terrace, and stone fireplace. Rustic elegance with top of the line furnishings. Unobstructed views of the High Peaks and the Olympic bobsled run are available all year from every room except one. The stone terrace, with views of the Sentinel Range and the bobsled run, is a wonderful gathering area with a large lawn.

There are four bedrooms, each with its own en suite bath. The master, with a king bed and screened porch, is on the second floor. The second bedroom upstairs has two twins with original Lake Placid Club iron frames. One of the first floor bedrooms has a queen bed. The other is equipped as a second gathering area with a queen sleeper sofa, TV with DVD player, and screened porch. All beds, bedding, and towels were recently upgraded and replaced. (The sleeper sofa is a sling style; i.e., there is not an iron bar across the middle of the bed).

The living room and dining room are comfortably furnished in the Adirondack style. Huge windows provide stunning views of the High Peaks and fabulous sunsets. Wood is provided for roaring fires in the original stone fireplace. The fully-equipped gourmet kitchen has a new dual fuel range, a full range of small appliances, and plenty of wine glasses. Full laundry room with new, large capacity washer and dryer.

There is so much to do! It's an easy walk from Elms Cottage to the Village of Lake Placid, Mirror Lake, and Lake Placid itself. In the Village and around the lakes you'll find shopping, the Olympic hockey stadium and ice rink, public tennis courts, boat rentals, equestrian stables, restaurants, and pubs.

You can also walk to the Lake Placid Club golf courses. Challenge yourself on the two championship courses or enjoy a quick nine holes on the Club's executive course. In the winter, you can ski from ELMS Cottage to trails that crisscross the golf courses. Downhill skiing at Whiteface Mountain and cross-country skiing at the Olympic Sports Complex at Mt. Van Hoevenberg are a short drive away. Renters have access to the Lake Placid Club/Crowne Plaza private beach on Mirror Lake, a 5-minute walk from the cottage. The beach usually opens on July 1.

Lake Placid, the home of the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympics, is 2 hours from Albany, 2 hours from Burlington, VT, 4.5 hours from NYC, and 2.5 hours from Montreal.
