Public transportation is limited but available depending on season. Lake Placid offers taxi services.
We built this cabin ourselves. Our DNA is literally in the building. It is a labor of love and an expression of our creativity and craftsmanship. Our intent was to build a getaway that was environmentally conscious using natural and energy efficient materials as much as possible. "Less is better" was key to our decision making along the way. We made use of existing materials as much as possible and generated very little waste during construction.
You will have privacy yet easy access to local amenities. A walk/pedal path is located along Springfield Road and wildlife refuge is just across the street. Lake Placid is a 14 mile scenic drive.
