Rustic Log Cabin

Cabin -
2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 6
Lake Placid, New York
This rustic log cabin was built in 1932. It was originally built as The Old Wheel restaurant and still has some of the birch tables and benches that was used for the guests. It was used as a family camp until the early 90's. The Torrance's decided to start renting it so other people could enjoy the beauty of this cabin.

Inside, the cabin has a huge living room/dining room, kitchen, bathroom and two bedrooms. The kitchen has a full size stove, refrigerator and coffee maker. The living room has a wood stove inserted in the fireplace and three futons. One bedroom has a queen size bed plus a twin bed and the other has a double bed and a twin. This camp sleeps 6 people.

There is a screened in porch on the front of the camp and a open deck on the back. From the back of the property, you can see a spectacular view of the High Peaks. Yo...

About the neighbourhood
The cabin is surrounded by trees but it sits about 100 feet off Cascade Road (Route 73). It was built to be a restaurant so it was necessary not to be too far off the road.
