                      Location

                      Very close to the downtown shops and restaurants and even closer to groceries. All Olympic venues, hiking trails and public access to Lake Placid lake close by. Within 1 mile of Whiteface Club and 1/4 mile from Whiteface Lodge.

                       

                      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!
