We had a wonderful time staying at Richard and Suzanne's place. They were warm and welcoming hosts who left detailed instructions and were easily reachable. Their place has an absolutely spectacular view and is very close to the town's center. Definitely a recommended stay.

Great location with very short walk to town and Mirror Lake. Richard's descriptions were very accurate and his was very attentive to details. We had a small problem with the wireless, and he responded within 10 minutes ! Basement is recently redone and great place to hang out, as was the shaded deck. Wish I was still there !!!

My family and I stayed at he Russian Olympic House for Ironman Lake Placid 2017. The house is in the perfect location for the race - it is THE closest house to the finish line! On top of that the house was large, very clean, quiet, and the views are spectacular!

We rented this house between June 20th and June 25th. There was plenty of space for all of us to be together yet get away and have your own private space. Even though the house is a little dated and squeaky, that’s what added to its charm. It sits on top of a hill with a fantastic view of the mountains. We loved seeing that view every day. The house is also within walking distance to downtown which is a plus if there is a lot of traffic in the area, yet if you wanted to visit sites outside of town, it was a short drive to local attractions. We would recommend you’re staying here. We don’t think you would be disappointed.

The Olympic house truly has a spectacular view! It's the perfect locale for an Adirondack vacation- close to town, relaxing, spacious, and beautiful. Richard was incredibly responsive and the house was exactly as described.

Great spot as it was 2 minute walk to Main St in Lake Placid and still had a beautiful view. Perfect for anyone with a large group who was attending an event in Lake Placid with as there was 4 large bedrooms. The owners were very responsive and their directions made it easy.

Richard's home is beautiful! Very spacious and clean with an amazing view and centrally located but in a quiet area of Lake Placid village. Our group was already planning the next visit before we had checked out.

Suzanne and I are retired community college professors from Westchester County, NY.
