About Cheryl Drevitch

I am a resident and native of Staten Island, NY. I am 3rd generation in a family business that was started by my grandfather in 1929 after he immigrated to the US. Back in those days he created every block by hand. We currently specialize in mason and building materials. I have been renting Brookside for 10 years and have done many improvements over the years. My tenants are extremely pleased and I have many returning renters. I take pride in giving each tenant complete attention and strive to help them have the best vacation possible.

Cheryl Drevitch purchased this cabin in 2002

Why Cheryl Drevitch chose Lake Placid

I’d like to tell you about my first experience as a potential buyer of Brookside. I arrived during the night and settled into the cozy cabin with no knowledge of the spectacular impressions I would receive the next morning. I awoke to the beautiful sounds of the babbling brook, which I hadn’t heard when I first arrived. I then went outside to the gorgeous wrap around deck I looked at the beautiful Whiteface Mountain and the picturesque Lake Placid while drinking my morning coffee. As I relaxed next to a warm fire I immediately fell in love. Following my lovely morning I explored the area and saw nature at its best. Just 5 minutes away I enjoyed the cozy village of Lake Placid where I antiqued, shopped at boutiques, dined on the lake and enjoyed a fifty cent popcorn at the historic cinema. I decided then and there this was the place and the property for me.

What makes this cabin unique

Brookside Cabin is wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here, along with our two dogs, several times. It is difficult to find lodging that is so tastefully decorated when traveling with dogs, and we are grateful that Cheryl affords this opportunity. What a wonderful place to relax near a warm fire after hiking or skiing. They say there's no place like home, and since Brookside feels like home we find ourselves wanting to always go back.

Awesome vacation cottage

  • 5 of 5

We were so impressed by the cleanliness, attractiveness and first class appliances provided at Brookside cottage. This cottage is on the beautiful grounds of Whiteface Inn and is a perfect blend of "getting away from it all" and yet close enough to restaurants, food markets and great shopping. We would love to return some day!

We love Brookside !

  • 5 of 5

Every year when we start to plan our summer vacation we think about other places to go, but we always return to Lake Placid, the Whiteface Club and Brookside. Really a wonderful family tradition. Brookside is perfect for our family and Cheryl is wonderful. We grilled on Sunday night and noticed a problem was developing with the grill. We made a called in the morning and within in an hour we had a new grill on the deck! Thanks Cheryl.

Relaxing Cabin with Creek

  • 5 of 5

This was a great cabin, with short drive into town. We were here for Ironman and though not inexpensive, it was worth every cent and seemed very reasonable compared to some of the other rentals we had looked into for the same time period! Spacious, private, great decor, nice kitchen and fantastic lake access. We totally relaxed, sun or rain, in spite of the chaos surrounding an Ironman event. The house managers were super organized and responsive. The only issue was we tried to make a fire on a very rainy, cold day and the fireplace did not vent well, in spite of opening the vent as directed. We abandoned the idea. Check with Owner in advance for tips if that is a feature you desire to use!

Owner's Response: Hello Sandra, I am so glad you were are happy with everything. Sorry about the fireplace issue. Derek my caretaker is a phone call away with any problems. I will check into the vent issue and correct any malfunctions. Hope you will be able to return again! Best regards, Cheryl

Brookside Bliss

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy that this beautiful home was just as it was depicted in the pictures! It was a warm week for the winter, and the brook just steps outside the cottage was running as it does in the spring. The views of the lake were spectacular with the mist rising from the melting ice . We took walks in the nearby trails and had a great breakfast at the lodge just a short walk from the cottage .

The cottage itself was great . Artfully decorated with adirondack furnishings and a big dining table that we ate and played board games on. The kitchen was brand new and everything was meticulous including the bathrooms . The master bathroom was spectacular!!!! We enjoyed our nights after dinner sitting by the fireplace and so thankful that Cheryl even supplied the wood!!! We will definitely be returning this cozy cottage soon!

Rustic Ski Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent Christmas vacation at Brookside Cabin for several years and loved it more every visit. It is decorated beautifully with a stunning view of the lake and the surrounding woods and brook. There are snow shoeing and cross country trails right outside the door and all over the area. There were always new upgrades that made it more inviting year after year. It is a very special place. Shopping and excellent restaurants are only a few minutes away in the village. We loved making a fire and warming up after a day on the slopes. Perfect cabin! We can't think of Lake Placid without thinking of Brookside Cabin.
