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!

Cozy as can be

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited the area twice within a month in order to train and race for the triathlon. The cottage was the perfect place as a home base. We loved the homey feel and walking distance for food and drinks. Definitely recommend the Keene Cottage!

Great location and very comfortable for our stay.

  • 5 of 5

We are a retired couple traveling without pets, this cottage was just right for us. It is in the Adirondack Mountains and close to several towns, lakes, and many walking and hiking trails. Inside it is comfortable, and quiet. The kitchen is well equipped. The owners are very helpful and friendly, just call or email and they respond right away. We would stay there again.

Owner's Response: Hi Dorothy, I'm glad you had a wonderful visit for your first time in the Adirondack Mountains. The weather was certainly beautiful. It was nice to hear your stories about all the places you went which also included family visits to Bert's relatives. I hope your return drive to Florida went well. It was a pleasure to meet both of you and a first for me meeting another 'Dorothy'! Regards, Dorothy

GREAT!!!

  • 5 of 5

Cottage was perfect for a couple looking to get away to the Adirodaks. Cottage was stocked with everything you could hope: plates, cups, silverware, cookware, cooking utensils and even tinfoil/saran wrap/zip lock bags. There is tons to do around the cottages. Trailheads for hiking are within 5 minutes and lake placid is an easy drive away. My wife and I had a great time staying at the cottage and would definitely stay there again if we go back.

The Cozy Cottage was Comforting

  • 5 of 5

The Cozy Cottage name is a perfect fit. My husband and I ventured up to the Adirondacks for the first time over an exteded weekend. We found the cottage to exceed our expectations. The location was easy to access, close convenient store, liquor/spirits, and restaurants were within walking distance. The cottage was equipped with everything you needed. Since we were busy exploring the area we didn't get the chance to meet the home owner, but Dorothy was thoughtful in leaving us a note on the door to make sure we were enjoying our stay. My husband and I are already talking about a return trip for a longer period of time in the near future.

Owner's Response: Hi Lisa, Either we were home and you were out or you were home and we weren't! Even though we didn't get a chance to meet, I was glad to keep in touch through notes...mine and yours. I'm glad you had a wonderful time and look forward to a return. Just a FYI, the Adirondack Mountains are absolutely beautiful during the fall foliage...end of September, early October! I look forward to definitely meeting you next time. Regards, Dorothy

Owner's Response: Hi Zack, I'm glad that a family wedding brought you from Madison, Wisconsin to the Adirondack Mountains of New York! It was wonderful meeting you, Jamie and your beautiful baby, Eleanor. I know you said you would have enjoyed a few more days! I'm glad everyone had a good time. Regards, Dorothy
