Lake Placid Cottage Rental Photos and Description

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!

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!

Cozy Cottage during Peak Autumn Color

  • 5 of 5

This was a great cozy respite after our hiking adventurers. The garden cottage is clean and located in a convenient location, quiet (away from the hustle from downtown Lake Placid) but with a 5-min drive from downtown, we didn't miss any of the action. The rustic ADK decor is cozy and inviting. A small bottle of merlot greeted us after a long drive. After a full day of hiking, we were very happy to have firewood readily available to cuddle-up by the fireplace and rest our bones, not to mention a towel-warmer to further relax. The cottage was well-equipped: the kitchen was fully stocked and we were pleasantly surprised that a washer and dryer was also available. Our family adventure wouldn't be complete without sharing it with our canine companion too - we were very grateful to have all the amenities to keep our little furry guy happy. There were even wholesome dog treats, dog bowls for him as well.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We used this cottage for a few short days after our wedding in the area. Unfortunately we didn't get to spend as much time there as we would have liked, but I can confidently say that this little "hobbit hole" is absolutely perfect in every way. The interior details are superb! The exterior is adorable and gorgeous. I highly recommend everyone stay here, I know we will definitely be coming back!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️😍😍😍

Quiet and secluded but minutes from trails, water, restaurants and town

  • 5 of 5

Its a very intimate cottage for two ( plus our dog ). I think the space would be tight if there were any more than that, however it was plenty perfect for us. The property has plenty of space between other homes in the area so while being outside we had plenty of privacy sitting in the Adirondack Chairs and playing with our dog. There's everything you could need indoors including a great bluetooth speaker that connect easily. Overall is was a super classy, woodsy, well appointed cabin near lake Placid.

Better Each Visit

  • 5 of 5

As usual, Outstanding. This is our 4th time staying in the Garden Cottage. Every time we stay there are new additions to make the stay even better. This time there was a doggie welcome set of bowls and towels to use while there! A new deluxe CharBroil grill on the lawn and now 4 red Adirondack chairs add to time spent outside. We have visited Lake Placid many times and now that we've discovered Garden Cottage the last 4 visits it's the only place we'll stay. It's our home away from home.
