This vacation rental is a great “buy” for big groups, accommodating up to 10 guests with its five bedrooms. The entire Airbnb home was renovated from an old 1900s house so it has a lot of character. The amenities, however, are modern, with WiFi, heating, TV and a full kitchen for home-cooked meals. Groups of up to five will manage fine with the kitchen, but larger groups can choose to dine out as downtown Lake Placid is only 15 minutes away on foot. The price is for a maximum of two guests, beyond that, a 25 USD per guest per night is charged.

We had a wonderful stay at BirchSide! We had a group of 10 and it was the perfect size. There were a lot of nice personal touches that made our stay feel very homey and comfortable. Everything was very clean and exactly how we were expecting it to be after looking through the pictures. Randy and Lisa are extremely timely with communicating and just overall kind and welcoming. We are looking forward to another trip to BirchSide in the future! Eileen, stayed January 2017
Perfect for couples who want to get away from it all. This cozy Airbnb cottage does not have TV and Internet services but cellular reception is good. The owners of the vacation rental also live nearby so guests can easily get assistance. Situated on a 10-acre property near the Ausable River, the cottage is a good jump off point for the Jackrabbit Ski Trail, as well as mountain biking, hiking and running. It’s also a 3.2 km (1 mi) drive from downtown Lake Placid. A minimum two-night stay is required and guests are encouraged to bring their own car.

Another Airbnb rental that allows guests to enjoy the outdoors while they are visiting Lake Placid. The facilities are basic - a stocked kitchen, TV, and heating. What makes this attractive to guests who like outdoor sports is that the owner allows guests to make use of their gear, such a canoe, a kayak and mountain bikes. While it is only a 5km (3mi) drive to the centre of town, it is also near enough to Saranac Lake for some serious adventure. A minimum two-night stay is required and this rental can accommodate up to three guests.
Fabulous place! If you want to be away from the center of activity at the end of the day in a very beautiful location in a top notch apartment setting, this is where you must stay. Cary is delightful! Mary, stayed December 2016
