Lake Placid Cottage Rental Photos and Description

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 Lake Placid

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 manager

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!

Perfect Adirondack cottage!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I recently got married at the Whiteface Club (Labor Day 2014) and on the great recommendation of the wedding point person at the club we rented the Garden Cottage for the weekend. Needless to say we were thrilled! It was the perfect home base for our wedding. I spent the morning of our actual wedding getting ready here with my bridesmaids, which was great fun.

It is even more charming and beautiful and well appointed than the review and pictures indicate. We loved sitting in the red Adirondack (well Westport really!) chairs in the morning with coffee, sleeping in that comfy bed, setting up shop in the kitchen, being steps away from the lake, etc.! The cottage is perfectly decorated in a whimsical Adirondack style but also full of every modern convenience you might need.

Thank you!

Thanks much

What an incredible cottage, great location, impeccably decorated and in an area with a plethora of things to do. We enjoyed our visit so much that we are now looking for properties in the Lake Placid area. We will definitely be returning this winter for ski season.

Charming cottage in beautiful area

  • 4 of 5
This charming cottage in Lake Placid has everything described in the listing and more. The owners have included lots of homey touches as well as amenities you would find at top resorts and hotels. While it's not right on the lake, it is a short walk to the lakefront as well as a quick drive to great hiking and skiing. We came for a lacrosse weekend for our teenage son and found it very convenient to the playing fields and the town. We cooked several meals in the little kitchen and found that it had just about everything we needed. The bed was very comfortable, and the variety of pillows ensured there was the right size and fluffiness for anyone's taste.

ADK Garden Cottage July 2014

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I (and our 2 dogs) have been vacationing in the Adk's for the past 10 years. This was our first stay at the Garden Cottage and it was wonderful!
It was exactly as described and is perfectly located; short walk to the private beach, hiking trails, etc.
We highly recommend the Garden Cottage.

It is a sweet little cottage .. and little is a serious word.

  • 4 of 5
The cottage has everything needed for a wonderful and comfortable stay. The kitchen, tiny, has absolutely EVERYTHING you need in high quality equipment. The bed is quite high but thankfully a step ladder was found with the Washer/dryer. It was very chilly several nights -- in the 40s and we pieced together woolie blankets from the living room. A warm king blanket would not be amiss. Plenty of steaming hot water in the shower. The toilet was very low -- if ever a re-do of the bathroom happens, then one that is designed for adults would be great. The gardens are beautiful. When you arrive and park behind the cottage, the grass is not mowed which in truth does not do justice to the house nor its front lawn/garden. The mowers were there twice but said their instruction was not to mow the area between the car park and the cottage. Might want to revisit that. We were grateful for the dining out guidance. LOVED sitting in the front on that super bench with cushions to read and throw toys for the dog. Its tough to go with the dog to the water...in fact, its not really possible. The people beach, naturally does not want dogs there. Perhaps some steps down into the lake at the access point?
We had a great stay and hope these ideas are useful. Best, Jill & Jim Sheffield
