Overview

Photos and Description of this Hillcrest holiday condo

3 Bedroom, 1.5 Bath, sleeps maximum of 6

Comet Place at 2 Pine Lodge is a new condo that has a gourmet kitchen, Adirondack decor, deluxe bathroom with jetted tub and separate shower, high speed Wi-Fi, 2 flat screen TVs, cable service, AC, a gas fireplace, and even a storage unit for snowshoes/skis/sleds/bikes/canoes/kayaks

Located in the heart of the town of Lake Placid, only 2 blocks from restaurants, boutiques, movie theater and a small park overlooking Mirror Lake, Comet Place even has a playground less than a block away! There is 1 dedicated parking spot in the front of the building and on-street, except the winter. Complimentary, continuously running Village shuttle stop is less than a block away and another free shuttle 2 blocks away to Whiteface and points between runs during the winter. There is a community grill in back of the building.

Comet Place at 2 Pine Lodge is located in a very quiet part of town that is a two block walk to the town and Mirror Lake. Whiteface Mountain is only 10 miles away (15-20 minutes). After a long day of skiing/hiking, come relax by the indoor gas fireplace or soak in the jetted tub while reading a book. Then take a short walk down to Main Street to eat at one of Lake Placid's many fine restaurants.

We are very accommodating.: If you need an early check-in and/or late check-out, just ask ahead of time! As long as there is no other rental on check-in or check-out days, we can be flexible. We do need at least four hours between rentals so that the condo can be thoroughly cleaned for the next occupants, so check-out time usually needs to be at 10 AM and check-in time at 4 PM..

There is absolutely no smoking, including e-cigarettes, indoors or within 50 feet of building. If it is found that a tenant has smoked indoors, a large extra cleaning fee will be assessed. Sorry, no pets allowed. Minimum stay is 3-days (per condo association rules), except during Iron Man, when it is a week and during the summer high season and the December holidays when the minimum stay is 5 days.

Condo association and insurance policies restrict the number of renters to no more than 6 people (including infants and children) at a time. There is one dedicated parking space in front of the building dedicated to the unit, with on-street parking available, except during the winter. There is also a laundromat about 6 blocks away that is next to the supermarket and is open 24 hours a day. It includes dry cleaning services, too.

About Gale Wood/Dave Dewsnap

We became the proud owners of Comet Place the fall of 2012 and have enjoyed hosting a regular stream of happy guests, as you will see from our many reviews. We fell in love with Lake Placid and when we saw this new condo with its marvelous rustic twig and birch work throughout, we decided to buy it for us and for our renters.

We live outside of Philadelphia and come to Comet Place as often as we can, usually at least four times a year!

We named 2 Pine Lodge at 125 Greenwood Street 'Comet Place' based on our own love story, in which Halley's Comet played a 'starring role'. We hope it's as happy a place for you as it is for us!

In November 2014 we purchased another star in the Comet Constellation, Comet Cove. It's about 3/4 mile from Comet Place and has an unobstructed view of Lake Placid and the mountains surrounding it. It has a modern 'lake look' to it, in contrast to the lovely rusticity of Comet Place. It has two bedrooms and two full baths, as well as a sofa bed in the living room. It is perfect for two couples or a small family. We are in the process of building the Homeaway site for it.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From Guest Journal: "“For our surprise Christmas present for our boys, we decided to venture out of 80 degree weather in FL and go to the fabulous Adirondacks. What an amazing experience, skiing in Whiteface, celebrating New Year’s in Lake Placid and cross-country skiing through the Olympic venues. Our boys are already begging to come again. The cabin is wonderful—ideal and cozy for 5 people. It was perfectly placed and had all we needed, plus terrific help from Merrill Thomas (rental team). Thank you for all your help and welcome materials.”

A Cozy and Welcoming Home Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a fantastic week and this beautiful condo was the perfect home base! “So cozy” as my 4-year old son described it. So convenient to downtown and one of the best stocked homes we have stayed in. The boys loved the first forest feel and the décor. Thank you so much for sharing your lovely condo with us! We definitely made some memories this week that will last a lifetime! We look forward to a future visit.

A Fabulous Location Full of Adirondack Charm

  • 5 of 5

Comet Place is comfortable, welcoming and beautifully appointed. It was such a treat to have what we needed available in the kitchen rather than having to run out for some staple that we just needed a pinch of. It was a quick walk to town, but the location was quiet and felt very private. After a busy day out on the Lake or trails it was wonderful to have such a restful, gracious place to come back to. Thanks, Dave & Gale!

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Comet place was just a wonderful place to stay. It is an easy walk into downtown which was what we were looking for at an affordable price. It was very clean and cozy feeling. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you needed except the food. We will absolutely be back to stay again and again. We have always loved to visit Lake Placid, Comet place just makes it that much more enjoyable and relaxing. Thanks Gale and Dave for such a wonderful place at a great price. Shean and Carmen

Wonderful stay in the Conet!

  • 5 of 5

Our family took a mid week trip to Lake Placid and stayed at the Comet! It was absolutely beautiful. Spotless! Just a wonderful few days away and the unit exceeded our every expectation. We very much recommend this home as a top choice in the Lake Placid area.

Lake Placid and the surrounding area are great places for birding, hiking, biking and fly-fishing, in addition to the full range of winter and lake sports (Mirror is a non motor lake.) You can rent canoes, kayaks, bikes, etc. nearby and there's a free shuttle that runs all year around the Olympic Village, with a stop near our unit. The small park across the street is perfect for kids any season. We love walking the beautiful 2.7 mile path around Mirror Lake each day we can, just two blocks away!
