What makes this Cottage unique
Our past guest's comments speak to the benefit of choosing Whiteface Ski cottage, a quiet seemingly remote (but still close to everything great in the High Peaks!) location to relax and recharge their batteries. In fact many guests hardly ever leave the peace of Adirondack Star Ridge! They walk the short 5 minute hike up to the ridge to catch a sunset, join in the fire pit festivities if active or just relax on their own 700 sq.' deck overlooking the forest and NE views beyond.

Great property. Love the location and thank you for the local hiking tip
Awesome property in a truly spectacular location!!!!
We loved our stay for a long ski weekend at this property!!!! The property grounds are just truly amazing. The grounds are immense and are "off the beaten path", which we just loved. Our dog was able to run free with our having no worries of traffic, etc. We walked the driveway frequently during the days of our stay and it was like enjoying a private nature walk. The view at the top of the driveway is absolutely breathtaking. Despite the remote location, supplies are readily accessible at nearby grocery stores, etc.
The house itself is extremely well-appointed. We cooked all of our meals but one during our stay and we found everything we needed to do this in the fully equipped kitchen. The house was also extremely clean and comfortable. Mike and Mini are wonderful hosts who put a lot of heart into making their property the perfect "home-away-from-home". We'd definitely highly recommend this property to anyone headed up to this area!!!!
Thanks for the awesome review folks. Come on back when you can! We'll keep putting our 'heart and soul' into making the Cottage, Adirondack Star Ridge the 'home away from home' so many have enjoyed. Cheers and thanks again for your choice of stays!

Relaxing peaceful and beautiful
My husband, our son and his best friend stayed at Au Sable Star Ridge over the long Martin Luther King weekend. It was a wonderful get away. The cottage was well appointed, cozy and spotless. The owners were easily accessible and attentive to our needs. The setting was peaceful and beautiful! It exceeded our expectations. We would love to go back. Thank you Mike and Mini for sharing your beautiful place with us! It was difficult to leave!
Diane & family stayed 3 nights at the Cottage, Adirondack Star Ridge during 16" of snow and temperatures well below 0. We're delighted that the Cottage was a comfortable space for them during these harsh outdoor conditions.
Come on back when you can family!
Amazing Adirondack Vacation - Highly recommend this property
The owners are so welcoming, providing al the information we needed prior to our arrival. They checked in on us to make sure we arrived safely and to wish us safe travels on our way out.
The home itself is very well kept and clean. There is a wood stove that keeps the house plenty warm, and the owners provided wood and fire starting material) or you could turn on the heat. The steam shower was super nice after a day spent playing in the snow.
It has good views from the back porch and breathtaking views of Whiteface Mountain just a short walk up the drive. It was a perfect spot for early morning coffee and nighttime campfire s’mores.
We would love to visit again. We have absolutely no complaints about the house, location, views or friendly owners. I would recommend this house to anyone wanting to visit the area.
Plenty of heat (from a variety of sources) is just one thing of many we offer in abundance at the Cottage, Adirondack Star Ridge but is especially important when the temps outside can drop well below freezing and our guests are unaccustomed to our Northern Winter weather. There is nothing more satisfying than standing barefoot on a warm radiant floor in your pjs while peering out the double-glazed windows onto a frosty wonderland. Come explore all the Adirondacks is about in the Winter months, then rest up in the comfort of the Cottage, Adirondack Star Ridge.
Peaceful and powerful accommodations...highly recommend this property.
We were in search of a place that offered privacy as well as beautiful views of the Adirondack area and all it has to offer...and we found it here. Very inviting and relaxing space. We will definitely be back. Thank you!
Thanks for your kind and heartfelt words folks...Come on back when you can!
Cheers from Adirondack Star Ridge!

Wonderful Adirondack Getaway
The house is clean and well kept. It has a huge deck and a propane grill. Good views from the deck. It's in the woods and totally secluded. It's on 30 acres, the owners welcome you to walk up the long driveway which has a clearing (pictured) with INCREDIBLE views (w/ places to sit and a big fire pit too). Just walking the driveway is kind of like a beautiful hike in the woods. The owners are accommodating and friendly. They are located on the other side of the property so far enough away to be separated yet close enough if you should need anything.
The house itself is very tidy and well kept. Master bedroom, 2nd bedroom, kitchen and bathroom and a small dining area. Kitchen has a massive very nice counter for eating as well. They have wireless broadband internet. You can make a fire in the woodstove if you want (we did), or just turn up the electric heat. Very comfortable inside. At night, it's dark enough to not only see all the stars but also the Milky Way. Great star-gazing from the deck.
Really I couldn't recommend it any stronger. Just a nice place, secluded and private and fantastic. Only about 2 miles from the main road, yet totally in the mountains. It's a really good place.
Thanks for the great review folks! Come on back when you can.
As you mentioned the wood stove is available with wood provided but as a back up simply use the deliciously comfortable radiant floor heat organized into 3 zones: bath, bedrooms and remainder of the Cottage.
