Whiteface Mountain Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Welcome to the Cozy Cottage in the Heart of the Adirondack Mountains! It's nice to go away and feel at home. The cottage features a knotty-pine living room with futon for additional sleeping, cable tv/dvd/vcr/stereo. The well-equipped kitchen contains a full refrigerator/freezer, microwave, x-large toaster oven, toaster, coffee maker, glassware, silverware, plates, pots, pans, utensils, etc. The bathroom has a shower unit (no bathtub). And, the separate bedroom contains a queen-size bed with plenty of storage to unpack your suitcases, put everything away, relax, head out and enjoy. For your convenience, there is a compact washing machine, although small, to clean your clothes.

Your well-behaved pet is welcome but you will be responsible for clean-up and damage due to your pet. There is a small back yard behind the cottage to walk your dog.

The cottage is reasonably priced and contains everything you need, other than your personal belongings and food/drink. There is a convenience store within walking distance which makes going out for a forgotten or wanted items very easy. There are several very good restaurants and shops either within walking distance or a short drive...and the scenery is beautiful.

Thank you for looking at this listing. I hope to hear from you.

About Dorothy

We live in the house next to the cottage and always enjoy meeting and talking with the people visiting our area.

Dorothy purchased this cottage in 2011

What makes this cottage unique

The kitchen gives you the option to cook meals if you would like to save money or reheat leftovers from the restaurant...very convenient. The 'in town' location allows you to walk to several shops, restaurants, etc. without having to get back into your car.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Dorothy & Ken, Thank you very much for the lovely time we had at the cozy cottage. We enjoyed it very much. The place is fantastic and you are very warm and kind people. The x-mas candies were a very pleasant (and delicious) surprise! Thank you for all the support and help with the snow...it was the most snow we have ever seen! Happy New Year!

Great stay and location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is perfect for a long weekend getaway or longer in the Adirondacks. I unfortunately didn't get to meet Dorothy but everything was as described in the listing and she helpfully left some suggestions for cafes and restaurants on the table as I entered.

Would definitely recommend and look forward to staying there again.

Owner's Response: Hi Naeel, Yes, it was unfortunate that we did not meet but our schedules were different and you were here for such a short time. I thought we might get to meet on Sunday morning but you left very early. I hope you enjoyed your stay and if you return to the cottage, we will make plans to definitely meet! Best regards, Dorothy

Cozy cottage with 5star service.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the cozy cottage. The cottage is rustic but Dorothy provided 5 star service. All are needs were met and we didn't want for anything. The linens were soft and clean. The cottage was clean and all we needed was our clothing , personal toiletries and food. Also the kitchen was well stocked with pots pans, dishes and utensils. Lookingutensils. Looking forward to coming back. Note cell phone service was sketchy in the whole area but we appreciated that. Wifi worked great though.

What more could you ask for?

  • 5 of 5

The Keene Cozy Cottage was the perfect place for 2 or 3 people to recover after a long day on the slopes or hiking trails. Dorothy provided all the necessary amenities from cookware to firewood for the fireplace outside. The location was perfect being within 15 or 20 minutes from most trails, Whiteface Ski Area, and Lake Placid. My girlfriend and I enjoyed hiking two trails, boarding at Whiteface, and taking a trip into Lake Placid where we were able to see Men's College hockey semifinals at the Olympic Arena. Overall the cottage couldn't have been better and at the price point this place is an amazing find. There is no doubt that we will be staying at the Keene Cozy Cottage on our next trip to the Adirondacks.

Owner's Response: Hi Braden, You certainly had a variety of weather...one day snow, the next day none! I'm glad you were able to enjoy skiing, hiking, and then a bonus day of watching the game in the Olympic Center. It was a pleasure meeting you and I look forward to seeing you again. Thank you for your nice review. Regards, Dorothy

Owner's Response: Hi Karine & Jeff, You certainly did some marathon hiking! I'm glad you had good weather. Only a few more mountains to go until you reach your '46er! It was a pleasure to meet you and your hiking buddy Della.
