Overview

About the property

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.”

Wow - what a spot

  • 5 of 5

My two sisters and I - all from different parts of the US - had the good fortune to stay at Comet Place. We were thrilled with the condo. Everything we needed to make ourselves comfortable was there including a super well stocked kitchen. The thoughtfulness of the owners meant we did not have to bring a thing from home. It was so clean too!. And it is beautifully situated in the village of Lake Placid with easy access to all the natural beauty the Adirondack area has to offer. Would we return to this spot- absolutely.

Comet Place, great location!

  • 4 of 5

Comet Place was just as described and just a ten minute walk from the beautiful downtown. The condo was spotless (and I am very picky) and the kitchen was well stocked to make meals at home. Every appliance was available and it is so nice not to have to run out and buy things like spices, flour, sugar, and condiments. The owners were so pleasant to work with, they provided us with recommendations on restaurants and so much information on area activities!

The condo is decorated in a cute Adirondack theme, with a library of games and books. The only reason I am not giving 5 stars is because of the seating in the living room, as a previous reviewer mentioned. Although I appreciate the aesthetics of staying with the theme of the decor, the current pieces are not very comfortable and only allow 4 people to sit together. We have a family of 6 and after a very long day of hiking and exploring, it would have been nice to return to a comfy couch where we could of spread out and all watched some television together.

We absolutely fell in love with the area and would return in a heartbeat! We had wonderful meals and impeccable service at Lisa Gs and Smoke, but had horrible service and a mediocre meal at the Lake Placid Brewery Co., which we were excited to visit. People in town were so friendly and helpful, which is not always the attitude towards tourists. All in all a memorable family vacation and a place we hope to revisit soon!!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you loved Comet Place! We're sorry that you felt cramped with your 4 teen-age sons in the evening when you wanted to watch TV. We''ll be up this month and will check out the situation to see if there's anything we might be able to do.

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our week stay at the Comet very much! It was so great to be so close to town and we even became good friends with the woodchuck who was under the porch…Great place to stay during Ironman (where my dad did very well, BTW!) We also enjoyed several of your movies…Thanks again for sharing your wonderful home with us.

Cozy, Clean, and Comfortable.

Our stay at Comet Place was great. The location was very convenient and close to all the shops and water sports on Mirror Lake. The condo was perfect for my family's needs; it was a great value.

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!
