About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom w/Q Bed; Futon in Living Room, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Welcome to the Cozy Cottage in the Heart of the Adirondack Mountains! It's nice to go away and feel at home. The cottage features a knotty-pine living room with futon for additional sleeping and a 40" tv w/2 usb ports. The well-equipped kitchen contains a full refrigerator/freezer, microwave, x-large toaster oven, toaster, coffee maker, glassware, silverware, plates, pots, pans, utensils, blender, crock pot, etc. The bathroom has a shower unit (no bathtub). And, the separate bedroom contains a queen-size bed with plenty of storage to unpack your suitcases, put everything away, relax, head out and enjoy. For your convenience, there is a compact washing machine, although small, to clean your clothes.

When a reply is sent that the cottage is available, the website will automatically send you an email requesting payment of one-half of the total to be sent in advance to confirm the reservation. There will be a 48 hour hold on your requested dates to allow you time to complete details on your end. The one half payment can be paid by credit card through this website.When the website sends a request for the one-half payment, you will notice a 'service fee' has been added to the quoted amount. This fee goes directly to the website. When I receive notice of your payment, I will send you an email to provide you with information regarding key retrieval, directions, etc.

Your well-behaved pet is welcome but you will be responsible for clean-up and damage due to your pet. Out of curtesy to others, please do not allow your pet on the couch or the bed. Also, please bring your pet's food/water bowls plus their bedding and a towel. There is a small back yard behind the cottage to walk your dog.

The cottage is reasonably priced and contains everything you need, other than your personal belongings and food/drink. There is a convenience store within walking distance which makes going out for forgotten or wanted items very easy without having to get back in the car & drive.

What makes this cottage unique

The kitchen gives you the option to cook meals if you would like to save money plus enjoy a home-cooked meal or just to relax & reheat the leftovers from the restaurant. The 'in town' location allows you to walk to several shops, restaurants, etc. without having to get back into your car.

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at the cottage. It had everything we needed and more. It was very clean and comfortable. Even tho I didn't cook, the kitchen was well stocked.

Dorothy and Ken were great hosts. Will definitely return next Summer.

The cottage is cozy and well organized as well as stocked for your every need like toilet paper

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved Dorothy as she was so sweet and helpful! We chatted with her almost every evening for a few minutes to tell her about our hike and where we ate dinner! She gave us recommendations and directions for places we asked her about. The cottage is cozy but plenty big enough for two or three people. It has AC in the living room, tv, fridge etc It was convenient to get to everything from hiking trails, restaurants and big places like Lake Placid. We had my toy poodle furbabies with us and Dorothy was so welcoming and friendly with them so they loved her! The dogs did great on our two to four hour hikes daily! My fiancée, my sister, and I were there in summer and my sister and I want to go back in the Fall. It is a beautiful area and the cottage is the perfect place to stay if you don’t want to rough it camping but don’t want to go too upscale with an expensive hotel. I plan to go back to this cottage every time we go back for hiking. Great nearby restaurants are Big Slide and Lisa G’s we ate at both twice cuz they were so good! Loved every minute of this vacation!

Owner's Response: Hi Bradley, I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. Since our schedules did not mesh, I'm glad your self check-in/check-out worked great. I'm glad you were here, not only to climb the Adirondack Mountains but also enjoy Lake Placid Ironman 2018! I do hope to see you another time on your return to the Adirondack Mountain! Regards, Dorothy

We stayed here for two nights and had a great time, even in the rain. Dorothy is very nice and we enjoyed our conversation with her. She has the cottage stocked with everything you ever need to make your stay easy. Just bring food. We would definitely come back again.

Owner's Response: Hi Pat & Ron, I really enjoyed talking with you & Ron...even though we talked for a while, I felt that we could have talked for hours! Since you raved about Hawaii, I have suggested to my daughter that a trip to Hawaii would be niceI hope to see you again and maybe we can enjoy sitting around the chiminea with drinks...or go to the casino! Regards, Dorothy

Lake Placid visit

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. Dorothy was very nice. She came over to meet us and visit. Prior to our arrival she gave us excellent instructions in an email regarding the keys and so on. She had a few magazines with local attractions to visit. There is a convenience store two houses down that had groceries and ice cream. Every thing was in the cottage that we needed.
