Overview

About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible Bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-4)

Rest, relax & rejuvenate. Welcome to the Garden Cottage!

Whether you are celebrating a special occasion, choose a cozy winter stay, a summer vacation, or a romantic honeymoon, the Garden Cottage is the perfect choice! It is just like staying in your own private and elegant luxury suite! The Cottage has a stone fireplace stocked with ample firewood and cozy amenities to make a memorable visit.

Enjoy the ambiance of the historic Whiteface Club and Resort, including a private beach, lakeside dining, marina, 18-hole championship golf course, and clay tennis courts. The area also offers trekking and cross-country ski trails...all within walking distance.

Garden Cottage was originally an open-air 'smoking gazebo' created for the original Whiteface Inn. It is said that gentlemen would retire here to enjoy a brandy and a cigar after their meal at the Inn. Over time, additions were added to create a bedroom, bathroom, dining room and kitchen. The original stone hearth, stone floors, and living room with its cathedral beam ceiling remain.

Returning guests often mention how rustic and authentic it is, yet fully equipped with modern amenities.

The bedroom was designed to feel like sleeping out in the woods with an amazing real birch tree headboard, however, no sleeping bag needed here, as our fluffy feather bed compares to boutique hotel comfort.

Our attention was driven on finding rare pieces of furniture and antiques from the surrounding region, like our latest addition, which is a custom made dining table from master craftsman Steve Bowers. As you sit on the Westport chairs in the privacy of the large perennial garden, enjoy the smell of the surrounding woods and calming sound of the loons in the distance.

Enjoy the reawakening of the Adirondacks in the spring when the garden’ flowers and berries are in bloom and the last of the ice is melting on the lake.

During the summer, steps away from the front door, take a dip in the purest water of Lake Placid after a wonderful hike or boat ride.

In the fall, you can enjoy the splendor of a nature walk in the beauty of the foliage.

The winter season offers virgin snow for your first tracks on cross-country skis and snowshoes. You can also sit by the fire and enjoy a nice glass of wine.

The Cottage is only a few minutes’ drive to the lovely town of Lake Placid. It is a historic Olympic village that offers lots of shopping, dining options, gourmet shops and antique galleries on Main Street.

Please take advantage of all you find here. We hope the cottage becomes your home during your stay in Lake Placid and that you find it a pleasant retreat to return to, season after season.

About Mary & Ben

We discovered the region of Lake Placid many years ago. We fell in love with its beauty, the kindness of the locals and the ever-changing wonders of the nature among the seasons.

Mary & Ben purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Mary & Ben chose Adirondack Mountains

We visited the Cottage randomly and knew at first sight that it would be our Lake Placid dream home.

We are very emotionally attached to it and try to come as often as we can. Every visit, we add new items, whether it comes from the neighborhood antique galley or have it custom made.

We are delighted to welcome each guest to enjoy it as if it was their own: welcome to the Garden Cottage family!

What makes this cottage unique

The Whiteface Club Resort has two restaurants, golf, tennis and beachfront on Lake Placid with cross country sking in the winter and only minutes to the olympic skating rinks and Whiteface Mountain for downhill skiing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I took our first trip to Lake Placid in early December and we cannot say enough about our stay at the Garden Cottage. It was exactly what we had hoped for when planning a little get-away. The cottage is so warm, quaint and cozy, beautifully decorated and equipped with everything you could possibly need. The location is just perfect, off the beaten path for a quiet, peaceful stay, but just minutes away from all that Lake Placid has to offer. We had fresh snow fall the entire time and enjoyed relaxing each night by the fireplace. Thank you, Amy, for a memorable and perfect mini-vacation. We will definitely be back!

Happy camping in the cottage

  • 5 of 5

The Garden Cottage on Lake Placid is the perfect anti-NYC! We had a great stay for a week in July, and the trees and flowers, mountains and lakes, birds and critters made for a quiet, beautiful, relaxing, recharging time. Top things to enjoy: 1) grill outside for lunch and dinner to soak up the greenery; 2) bring breakfast and coffee to the lakeside, which is minutes walk away, and soak up some mountain sun; 3) go canoeing or kayaking around Buck Island (very nice staff at the boathouse); and 4) walk around the resort or hit an nearby trails to take in the mountain air; and 5) stay in pajamas around the cozy cottage and make a fire! And don't worry if forecasts call for rain -- many days had a little rain but also lots of sun. Overall, a great stay and helpful and responsive owners -- we'd love to be back!

A Jewel with Brilliant Facets

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage is a perfect gem. It is elegant, quirky, stylish, incredibly comfortable, and intelligently and beautifully equipped and appointed. The size was just right for these two adults and our dog. The kitchen is easy to use and had everything we needed. We enjoy cooking and prepared most of our meals in the cottage. We also enjoyed the amenities of the Whiteface Club and Resort, including Moose Lodge Restaurant on our first night. During our stay, there were no neighbors in residence, so we felt private and secluded. We enjoyed the lawn and Adirondack chairs too! We had lots of hikes on dog-friendly trails and our dog enjoyed the dog beach in Lake Placid. All conveniences, including grocery stores, are close by. The town of Lake Placid is just a few miles away. Our visit was during the summer, and we hope to experience the charms of the Garden Cottage in other seasons. I highly recommend the Garden Cottage to anyone who would like a sweet romantic Adirondak get-away.

Relaxing and quiet!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cottage and were so comfortable there! It rained a couple days and we played games and music and napped. The other days we found dog-friendly hiking trails and got lots of exercise. Most nights we ate in because the cottage was so much more fun than a restaurant. We'll be back!

The perfect ADK getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 3 wonderful nights in this charming cottage. It was hard to leave! Everything is just as pictured! Super clean and cozy. The bedding and towels provided were high quality. The furniture was in excellent condition. The kitchen was fully stocked and equally as clean as the rest of the cottage. We thuroughly enjoyed our stay here. We had a fire each night and ended up ordering food and eating in 2 out of 3 nights due to not wanting to leave the cottage. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us! We will return!
