Lake house getaway boasts wintry views in the Adirondack Mountains

This modern lake house getaway was designed by Phinney Design Group, nestled into an outlet of Lake Placid, a village in New York State’s Adirondack Mountains. The project was conceived as a “lean to” with a large shed roof sloping down towards the road side. This Southern façade is lake facing and comprised of expansive glass walls, allowing for plenty of natural light.

The family of four wanted both a ski and summer retreat equipped to frequently host guests and extended family. Large openings were designed into the East and West ends of the home to accommodate the prevailing summer breeze and passively cool the interior.

Locally sourced natural materials were selected with a modern aesthetic, including American granite, bluestone, western red cedar, and douglas fir beams and soffits.

What We Love: This lake house getaway offers its inhabitants a wonderful seasonal retreat for its inhabitants to enjoy outdoor activities. Large walls of glazing frame picturesque views of the snowy scene throughout the living spaces, creating a magical atmosphere — especially during the holidays. We are loving the clean lines and durable materials used in this home, perfect for a vacation retreat.

I love the expansive use of glass to bring the outdoors in, however, even tho’ the finishes are top notch, personally I find the interior lacks warmth.

I hope the designers were smart enough to use bird friendly glass.
