Adk Star Ridge Cottage is simply a 'Peace' of Heaven. Located on 30 private & serene acres, it is adjacent to thousands of acres of pristine timberland. Neighbors are few and far between. You can expect peace & quiet with the sounds & smells of nature filling your senses.
You may choose to simply lounge on the 700 sq.' deck with a drink at hand and the bbq grilling away or hike a trail right from the side door to explore the forests beyond. The cottage has games, puzzles, wireless & satellite tv for those who prefer to stay indoors but may still avail the views through many windows & doors.
Hop in the car or on your bikes and travel a few miles to the Jay 'rapids' where you can soak, slide & cool off in the AuSable River. Visit the Jay Green, home to JEMS theatre and outdoor concerts and Summer festivals. Pop in to local artisans shops such as the Jay Studio (on the Green) & Youngs Gallery (just up Rt. 86) or grab an ice cream at Devins.

What makes this Cottage unique
Our past guest's comments speak to the benefit of choosing Whiteface Ski cottage, a quiet seemingly remote (but still close to everything great in the High Peaks!) location to relax and recharge their batteries. In fact many guests hardly ever leave the peace of Adirondack Star Ridge! They walk the short 5 minute hike up to the ridge to catch a sunset, join in the fire pit festivities if active or just relax on their own 700 sq.' deck overlooking the forest and NE views beyond.

This place was more than perfect to accommodate our family! Traveling with infant twins and a 4 year old, we needed a place that would be family friendly and boy did this place deliver! The amenities this lovely well kept cottage had made our stay so much easier! Not only that but it was SO quiet and peaceful. You really felt like you were "getting away".
Our 4 year old loved exploring outside and collecting pinecones and leaves to make art formations. Our infants slept peacefully both nights-they even had a pack n play crib and high chair available. A short 30 minute drive took us to Lake Placid for the day, and the girls LOVED Asgaard Farm around the corner. They had so much fun with the animals, and we picked up some fresh steaks, sausages, and yummy goat cheese for dinner!
GORGEOUS place, views, and SO accommodating. The owners truly thought of everything. So clean! We recommend to anyone with a family or without, this place would be perfect for a romantic getaway as well!
Thanks for the kind words and taking the time out of your busy day with the kids to write such a thoughtful expansive review. We appreciate your stay and hope you'll consider a return to Adirondack Star Ridge when you're back in the area.
Kind regards and stay well all,
Mike & Mini
What a Find
If you are looking for a clean, cozy, comfortable, secluded cottage with a fabulous view, this is the place. It's everything listed on the website plus a whole lot more. Mike and Mini were the perfect Host and Hostess and went out of their way to ensure our stay was perfect. And perfect it was! What a great place for hikes and long walks as well as it's proximity to Whiteface Mountain and other scenic spots. When you stay, don't forget the Ferry to Vermont. It was a great day trip. And The Hungry Trout was the right dinner recommendation. Once you visit you'll want to stay. We certainly will be back.
Thanks Jo-Lynn & Rich! We LOVED hosting you and Cruiser and trust our lives will cross some time again. You folks are special! All the best and cheers,
Mini & Mike (& mr. T)
Beautiful Getaway <3
If you are looking for an amazing times in the Adirondacks, this is a great place to stay! Very clean, great kitchen space, and windows to bring in the fresh air and sun. Mike and Mini were fantastic and were very accommodating/welcoming. Lake Placid is and Lake Champlain are only 25-35 minutes away from the cottage. We cannot wait to make are way back to the mountains and stay at this same spot. Thank you so much Mike and Mini for helping us create such great memories!
My daughter reports that it is gorgeous!
I did not get to go on this trip as my mother got a very unexpected, serious medical diagnosis just prior to our trip. This was supposed to be a mother-daughter birthday gift to my now 25 year old daughter. I explained the circumstances to the owners and my daughter, who went with a friend, was surprised with a cake, a card, balloons, the works! I have never met the owners but they are by far some of the kindest folks I have ever come across! I WILL get there some day to thank them. God bless you! <3
So clean and cozy. Everything you need is there. Owners are very friendly and a pleasure to meet.
We felt like we were staying in our own treehouse with a beautiful view and luxury comfort. It was wonderful to have the quiet and privacy of the woods. A nature lovers heaven with so many fun things to do close by. I hope we can stay again soon! Thanks to the owners for sharing such a special place in the ADK's.

They made sure we were comfortable the entire stay and even reached out at times to see if there was anything they could offer to make our stay more enjoyable. We came up to ski for the weekend @ Whiteface and this place could not have been better. thanks for the great space.
