Owner info

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!
