Overview

About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible Bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-4)

Rest, relax & rejuvenate. Welcome to the Garden Cottage!

Whether you are celebrating a special occasion, choose a cozy winter stay, a summer vacation, or a romantic honeymoon, the Garden Cottage is the perfect choice! It is just like staying in your own private and elegant luxury suite! The Cottage has a stone fireplace stocked with ample firewood and cozy amenities to make a memorable visit.

Enjoy the ambiance of the historic Whiteface Club and Resort, including a private beach, lakeside dining, marina, 18-hole championship golf course, and clay tennis courts. The area also offers trekking and cross-country ski trails...all within walking distance.

Garden Cottage was originally an open-air 'smoking gazebo' created for the original Whiteface Inn. It is said that gentlemen would retire here to enjoy a brandy and a cigar after their meal at the Inn. Over time, additions were added to create a bedroom, bathroom, dining room and kitchen. The original stone hearth, stone floors, and living room with its cathedral beam ceiling remain.

Returning guests often mention how rustic and authentic it is, yet fully equipped with modern amenities.

The bedroom was designed to feel like sleeping out in the woods with an amazing real birch tree headboard, however, no sleeping bag needed here, as our fluffy feather bed compares to boutique hotel comfort.

Our attention was driven on finding rare pieces of furniture and antiques from the surrounding region, like our latest addition, which is a custom made dining table from master craftsman Steve Bowers. As you sit on the Westport chairs in the privacy of the large perennial garden, enjoy the smell of the surrounding woods and calming sound of the loons in the distance.

Enjoy the reawakening of the Adirondacks in the spring when the garden’ flowers and berries are in bloom and the last of the ice is melting on the lake.

During the summer, steps away from the front door, take a dip in the purest water of Lake Placid after a wonderful hike or boat ride.

In the fall, you can enjoy the splendor of a nature walk in the beauty of the foliage.

The winter season offers virgin snow for your first tracks on cross-country skis and snowshoes. You can also sit by the fire and enjoy a nice glass of wine.

The Cottage is only a few minutes’ drive to the lovely town of Lake Placid. It is a historic Olympic village that offers lots of shopping, dining options, gourmet shops and antique galleries on Main Street.

Please take advantage of all you find here. We hope the cottage becomes your home during your stay in Lake Placid and that you find it a pleasant retreat to return to, season after season.

About Mary & Ben

We discovered the region of Lake Placid many years ago. We fell in love with its beauty, the kindness of the locals and the ever-changing wonders of the nature among the seasons.

Mary & Ben purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Mary & Ben chose Adirondacks

We visited the Cottage randomly and knew at first sight that it would be our Lake Placid dream home.

We are very emotionally attached to it and try to come as often as we can. Every visit, we add new items, whether it comes from the neighborhood antique galley or have it custom made.

We are delighted to welcome each guest to enjoy it as if it was their own: welcome to the Garden Cottage family!

What makes this cottage unique

The Whiteface Club Resort has two restaurants, golf, tennis and beachfront on Lake Placid with cross country sking in the winter and only minutes to the olympic skating rinks and Whiteface Mountain for downhill skiing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I took our first trip to Lake Placid in early December and we cannot say enough about our stay at the Garden Cottage. It was exactly what we had hoped for when planning a little get-away. The cottage is so warm, quaint and cozy, beautifully decorated and equipped with everything you could possibly need. The location is just perfect, off the beaten path for a quiet, peaceful stay, but just minutes away from all that Lake Placid has to offer. We had fresh snow fall the entire time and enjoyed relaxing each night by the fireplace. Thank you, Amy, for a memorable and perfect mini-vacation. We will definitely be back!

The perfect ADK getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 3 wonderful nights in this charming cottage. It was hard to leave! Everything is just as pictured! Super clean and cozy. The bedding and towels provided were high quality. The furniture was in excellent condition. The kitchen was fully stocked and equally as clean as the rest of the cottage. We thuroughly enjoyed our stay here. We had a fire each night and ended up ordering food and eating in 2 out of 3 nights due to not wanting to leave the cottage. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us! We will return!

Better every time

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is our favorite place to stay in Lake Placid. This is our 5th time I believe. Each visit in either Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter has added touches and nice surprises. This year was a beautiful outdoor Christmas tree with lights, and a new doggie blanket. Mary and Ben are so accommodating and pleasant and take great pride in their beautiful cabin. From the luxurious King bed and bedding to the cozy and calming interiors all of it adds to the homey feeling. It is quiet yet only 5 minutes from the Village and most restaurants. It is part of the Whiteface Club and access to their facilities is available for guests of the cottage. In the winter the shovel the snow and plow the parking area. In the summer the lawn and gardens are well maintained. We look forward to our next trip as much as this one. 5 stars!!!

ALWAYS a great time at the Garden Cottage.

  • 5 of 5

ALWAYS a great time at the Garden Cottage. This year 5 weeks later and we had snow every day. Just a short walk to a great Inn for breakfast or dinner. Full stocked kitchen if you would rather eat in. Under 10 minute drive into the town of Lake Placid but Mirror Lake is right there at the Cottage.

Charming, romantic and amazingly cozy! We'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Garden Cottage for our 10th Anniversary and we had a great time! Upon walking into the cottage I felt like a kid in a candy store. So many cozy and charming things to look at. Was so impressed with the attention to detail, it was like the cottage was speaking to you.

We were welcomed with a card and flowers and a bottle of wine. So incredibly thoughtful. We were so lucky to meet Linda when leaving and she is truly lovely.

Thanks for sharing your home with us!
