ReviewsWrite a review
We love Lake Placid and enjoy family vacations there. Normally, we stay at the Whiteface Lodge. We booked Brookside Cottage for Christmas vacation. It was so comfortable and easily accommodated our grown family of five. The location is so pretty, nestled in the woods. Loved the kitchen/dining area with fireplace. Had a relaxing week and look forward to returning. Owners are nice to deal with and very helpful, which is a bonus.

Great Winter Get-Away!
Great Winter Get-Away!
Brookside Cottage is an ideal place to get away, either to read a good book by the fire or enjoy all the activities that Lake Placid has to offer. The location is private, yet close to town for easy access to groceries or other shopping fun. The cottage’s floor plan is wonderful – bedrooms are separate from the living/hanging out space and the kitchen/dining room is well set up and a great place for lingering over dinner in front of the fire. Access to the Jack Rabbit trail is right down the road and we enjoyed fabulous cross-country skiing on Lake Placid. Brookside is a delight, and I hope we’ll return again.

Year Purchased: 1999
About the owner: Born in Lake Placid now live in NJ until such time our empty nest allows us to spend more time at Brookside Cottage
Why the Owner Chose Lake Placid:
My family has been living and vacationing in LP on this property for over 70 years. We have strong ties to the community and my husband and I and 4 grown children still vacation here year-round when we can.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
exceptional peace and quiet considering close proximity to town, lots of areas in the house to escape and chill even in a full house. Love to entertain adults in the expansive kitchen/dining area and back porch while kids can be occupied or sound asleep on other side of house. Love to choose one of the three furnished covered porches on a rainy day with a book or laptop. No civilization can be seen from anywhere on the property. A real cottage in the woods!
