About the property

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 and a 40" tv w/2 usb ports. The well-equipped kitchen contains a full refrigerator/freezer, microwave, x-large toaster oven, toaster, coffee maker, glassware, silverware, plates, pots, pans, utensils, blender, crock pot, 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.

When a reply is sent that the cottage is available, the website will automatically send you an email requesting payment of one-half of the total to be sent in advance to confirm the reservation. There will be a 48 hour hold on your requested dates to allow you time with complete details on your end. When the website sends a request for the one-half payment, you will notice a 'service fee' has been added to the quoted amount. This fee goes directly to the website. When I receive notice of your payment, I will send you an email to provide you with information regarding key retrieval, directions, etc.

Your well-behaved pet is welcome but you will be responsible for clean-up and damage due to your pet. Out of curtesy to others, please do not allow your pet on the couch or the bed. Also, please bring your pet's food/water bowl plus their bedding. 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 forgotten or wanted items very easy without having to get back in the car & drive. 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.

P.S. Due to internet interruptions, if you email me and do not receive a reply within 24 hours, please give me a call at 518-576-9981...thank you.

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.

Warm welcome, great location, cozy cottage!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place! Perfect for winter, easy to get to, easy access to all the trailheads and you can walk to Stewart's next door for coffee and supplies. Really well equipped (French press, blender...the works!). Warm, abundant hot water. Plenty of room for all our gear. Wifi worked great. Best of all is your friendliest host Dorothy! Great stay, we'll be back!

Owner's Response: Hi Marnie & Matt, I'm so glad the cottage was just the right fit for your visit to the Adirondacks. You certainly conquered quite a few mountains, both hiking & skiing, even some in really cold weather. While you were gone, I enjoyed getting to know Alfred P Dog and we had some nice walks! It was great meeting & talking with both of you and I look forward to seeing all of you again. Regards, Dorothy

I have stayed at the Cozy Cottage before. It is wonderful and very convenient to all the activities available for visitors to the Adirondacks. I have spent years vacationing in the area around Keene, NY but my friend sold his cabin in Jay, NY a few years ago. I am lucky to have found this property. The rent is reasonable and the owner is delightful. Very accommodating and pleasant to work with. There is one bedroom with a large bed and the cottage also has a very nice futon in the living room that pulls out into a double bed. The cottage has TV and WiFi so I was able to work remotely. I would highly recommend this property for any time of the year and plan to go back myself in the near future!

A wonderful cottage and very comfortable stay.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful time staying in the cozy cottage. The location was perfect for our hiking and cross country skiing trips in the Keene area and Lake Placid. The one bedroom cottage, with kitchen, cozy electric fire box was perfect for us and our dog. We also enjoyed walking down the side walk to the quant village of Keene. We can't wait to visit again!

Owner's Response: Hi Renee, It was wonderful talking with you and George. I'm glad you were able to take a couple of days away from your busy restaurant to enjoy a few days in the Adirondack Mountains. If you get the chance to get away again, just give me a call...or email. Regards, Dorothy

Great place for a winter vacation

  • 5 of 5

Small cottage that was the perfect size for me to explore the region and enjoy the winter weather. Owner was delightful and very helpful throughout the 5 days I was there. The cottage is small but can accommodate 2-3 people easily with the bedroom along with a comfortable futon in the living room. There was wireless internet so I could work on graduate work while I was away from home. I had a great time although the weather did not cooperate. I went with the hopes of skiing but there was no snow :( I really enjoyed my stay and hope to go back again, maybe this coming winter. If I am lucky, there will be plenty of snow for all my favorite winter activities.
