Summer Island Rental on Lake Placid is Renovated to Perfection. This is a boat access only property!  Exquisite mountain and water views from floor to ceiling windows in this unique, top of the line property. Often called “The Glass House”, the living room, dining room, kitchen, master bedroom, second bedroom and large deck all have front-facing views of the lake. The home has central air conditioning and heat as well as alternative in-floor heat in the bedrooms and baths and kitchen.

The main house has two bedrooms: the master bedroom with a king bed and a second bedroom with two twin beds. Both the bedrooms have ensuite full bathrooms and there is also a half bath powder room (toilet and sink) off the great room/living room. There are two working beautiful old stone fireplaces one in the living room and the other in the dining/sitting room. The kitchen is designed with Brazilian rainforest marble countertops and accommodates additional counter seating for four. There is a dishwasher, Subzero fridge, microwave, and stove. The house also has a laundry room with washer and dryer and another room that serves as a wet bar. Internet access is through dish for TV and internet.

There is a separate “Tea House” feet next to the main house with incredible three side views that can serve as a bedroom. It has a toilet, sink, and shower. There is air conditioning and radiant floor heat. The little one-room house overlooks the exact spot drawn of the lake, birch trees and canoes that appears on a postcard made in 1913.

The main house has two boat slips on the first floor, an extra windowed playroom (not heated) plus separate basement area with equipment like electric panel, A/C, etc.

The reason the 1950’s totally renovated and updated home is called Troutpoint is that the trout in Lake Placid, a trout-stocked lake, is known by local fishermen to like the spot!
Troutpoint is a few homes away from where Kate Smith also lived and wrote and sang her iconic American songs. It is a world where the past is present. It is a magical world, a respite from reality where rainbows, dreams, and imagination merge.

Close to town but far away…..

This is boat access only property as the house is situated on Buck Island, one of three islands in the middle of Lake Placid. Buck Island is the closest island to the mainland marina and the house is on the southern tip of the island, which makes for a short (just minutes), direct boat ride to a marina in town. The house has two boat slips and also a floating dock.

Behind the house is a stone patio and a Weber grill. Out front, on the grass, are two Adirondack chairs for enjoying the views or for cooling off after a swim in the lake.

Troutpoint is a quiet but dramatically beautiful property. It is peaceful, romantic, and very special.
