Overview

Whiteface Mountain Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms & full bath, sleeps 4 on real beds

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Star Ridge was the perfect place to stay for our Thanksgiving vacation. It has everything you may need while away from home. It has a huge kitchen, steam shower, wood-burning stove and a wrap around deck with beautiful views.There are extra blankets and linens.It was so clean inside and out. Mini and Mike are so nice and made sure were comfortable.

Wonderful little cottage. Beautiful scenery. We were here with our 2 teenage boys. Mike and Mini were very welcoming and helpful with suggestions of things to do in the area. Very quiet area with incredible views a small walk up the drive to the main house.

Great private getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying and mike and mini's private, secluded cottage! The woodstove, great kitchen area and overall atmosphere made us feel at home! We loved being so close to the high peaks for hiking! Also, mike and mini were just great, making sure we made it ok, and were settled in! They seem like great people! Would recommend this place to friends without a doubt!

Whatever we wanted

  • 5 of 5

Mike & Mini not only provided whatever we needed (including terrific tips about local attractions) - they have remarkable skills in home building and interior decorating. The house is perfectly situated to take advantage of the light (sunrise, sunset). Many conveniences are obvious to people, like us, who have done our own home renovation/design projects. The aesthetic beauty of the house was healing, rejuvenating to us (an older couple with a dog), working with Mother Nature to bring us back to our core. This property can be what you want it to be for you -- in a vacation that is highly active or quietly contemplative. The sky's the limit!

Peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5

Immaculately clean cottage. Comfortable with great thought put into providing every amenity one would want for a stay of a weekend or a week or more -- iron, ironing board, shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, hair dryer and so forth. Location was just what we were looking for in terms of an escape from the urban heat and bustle of our big city. Mike and Mini were lovely and gracious and asked several times about our needs. They provided great directions and suggestions. We hiked our fool senior heads off and now feel rested and oh so virtuous. Thanks Mike and Mini for a lovely and memorable stay!

Secluded peace

  • 5 of 5

This is more of a house than a cottage and it is top notch. Mike & Mini have attended to everything, from the supplied shampoo and soap in the shower, all the towels, sheets blankets down to the condiments in the fridge which came in very handy. The view from the deck of the trees and of the North scenery was a great place to hang out for the week to read and relax, and a short walk up the lane offered a beautiful view of the high peaks region to the west. Mike & Mini were very attentive to our needs and shared their campfire with us in their front yard which offered the wonderful view. Our only complaint was that we booked this for only one week instead of two. The cottage is very up to date and was very clean with a full complement of appliances - the washer and dryer was great to take advantage of before heading home. I would not hesitate to book this again as I'm sure we will.
