Holiday Rental House
Our rustic home is an aesthetically-appointed barn in a woodland setting. It has an open floor plan upstairs and down; a summer sleeping porch with double bed; odorless, waterless composting toilet; separate shower; patio with firepit and wood-fired cooking oven. Upstairs sleeps family of 4 or CLOSE friends (with queen bed and two twins with no doors in between). 5 minutes from downtown LP, 20 minutes from Whiteface Ski/Mountain Biking center. High ceilings. Well-equipped kitchen. Indoors and out, Ryder Hollow is all about melding your experience with nature. In the great room, the north picture window encompasses the majority of a 12' x 27' wall with a sweeping view to a meadow in the northern boreal forest. Wood-burning stove and in-floor heat for cold evenings. Ryder Hollow's wes...Our rustic home is an aesthetically-appointed barn in a woodland setting.

Wood-burning stove and in-floor heat for cold evenings. Ryder Hollow's western boundary beyond the lean-to borders state land. A hiking/snowshoeing trail leads to a neighborhood trail that climbs 500-feet in elevation to a mountaintop with remarkable views to the High Peaks. This is a 2-hour+ round trip from our barn. We are 1/4 mile from the northern entrance to the Northville-Placid Trail and wilderness paddling on the Chubb River is a prime destination.More

Interaction with guests
We like to greet and orient our guests as our facilities are unique and not standardized. If we are not able to greet guests, we like to have a dialogue prior to arrival. We're Adirondack enthusiasts. We moved here from NYC fifteen years ago and can turn you on to both recreational and cultural opportunities. Both abound here. We can help you plan your perfect day according to the season and the weather.

Dear Maria: We loved having you and your daughters. What intrepid women to put up with Arctic temperatures and figure out how to do Lake Placid with Uber. You taught us new things about where we live! Thank you for treating our home as if...More

We stayed at the Artist Hideaway for Christmas in 2017 and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The home is just a few minutes drive outside of Lake Placid and gives you the feeling of being in a very secluded spot while also being close to all...More

If you come back in summer, we can fix you up with perfect swimming holes, little mountains to climb (or big), and paddles galore. Happy New Year and thank you for choosing the barn, Chris. Karen and Peter

About the neighbourhood
We live in a hamlet, a few miles from downtown, that is adjacent to wild forest. There are woodland trails on the property that lead to our lean-to, an open-air log structure, for forest contemplation. We can turn you on to all sorts of outdoor activities. That's what the Adirondacks are all about.
Getting around
Uber, Rick's Taxi, the free green trolley that does a circuit downtown, a shuttle to the mountain during ski season from local hotels, but for maximum flexibility, you need a car. In winter it's helpful to have all-wheel drive, if not snow tires. If none, be flexible and travel on days without snowfall.
