About the property

House, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 3 Sleeps

Welcome to Woodside Cottage on River Road in Lake Placid. The property is located on the banks of

the Ausable River, one of New York State’s premier trout fishing streams. Whether you are looking

for a quiet getaway or a fast–paced adventure, this new cottage is the perfect place to enjoy the

splendor and diversity of the Adirondack Mountains. Woodside provides exceptional comfort in a

secluded setting minutes from downtown Lake Placid and its numerous shops, restaurants and athletic


Anglers can step directly into the West Branch at Cody’s Flats and wade to trophy trout and catch &

release areas just minutes downriver. In winter, enjoy downhill skiing at Whiteface Mountain (12

minutes away). Hop onto the nearby Jackrabbit Trail for access to a network of trails designed for

cross-country ski and snowshoe enthusiasts. Whether you are 5 or 75, the many walking and hiking

trails of the Adirondacks offer spectacular views and one-of-a kind experiences. Join the runners

and cyclists who use River Road (located on the Ironman course!) for year-round recreation and


Remember…the solitude offered by Woodside’s location makes this cottage a perfect place for those

seeking to do nothing other than to take a break or visit some place new. Put your feet up, read a

book and be lazy for a while!

Personal travels make me willing to accommodate individual requests, so let me know what you need

and I will do my best to provide it. I am happy to make arrangements ($20.00 hourly fee) for the

local market to fill a grocery list prior to your arrival. My hope is to offer the most comfortable

and pleasant environment for your visit that I can.

This property is a gem

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful experience at this property and completely satisfied. The cottage was perfect for 2 and spotless. Everything we needed was on site - just bring food. The location was also very convenient for anything and everything that can be done in and around Lake Placid and the Olympic Region. I will be back in the future no doubt!

Excellent place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place, especially for a couple who want to get a away for a few days and do not want to spend a lot of money eating out. The full service kitchen make this easy! The cottage is secluded, yet it only takes about 10 minutes to get to downtown Lake Placid. The cottage is right on the Ausable River, which is a fly fisherman's dream. The owners are very helpful and professional; they are nearby if you need them but also give you lots of space. As other people have noted, the house is fully stocked and very clean and new. All you need is shampoo and food. I would highly recommend this place to anyone and plan to return myself.

This cottage is fabulous. Very quiet setting, surrounded by woods. Owners live there so easy to contact. Lovely interior, WiFi worked very well and only minutes to drive to town. Highly recommend this rental.

Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

I was in town for the horse show. The cottage was located less than 10 minutes from the show grounds and less than 15 minutes from downtown shopping in Lake Placid. The cottage was nicely decorated and had everything I could need. JoAnn, the owner, was very nice and kept in contact with me regarding my arrival time. I would defintely stay here again. Thank you JoAnn for a great stay :)

Exceptional Experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a week at Woodside while on vacation in Lake Placid; it was perhaps the best vacation we've ever had! JoAnn's description of the property is very accurate. It was spotless when we arrived and JoAnn and her husband could not have been more friendly or accommodating; her customer service was outstanding! JoAnn was actually waiting for us when we pulled into her driveway. She has a few units like on this on her property, which is beautiful. It is very quiet and serene. We would strongly recommend this to any couple wanting a quiet vacation away. I give JoAnn a 10 out of 10!

This place was an incredible find! Every kitchen appliance utensil and utility is here! Its all the convenience of home with the all the pleasures of the Adirondacks. The place is in mint condition and the owner is really helpful on anything you could need from activities to the best places to eat. We were out during a snowstorm and I came home to a plowed drive and a shoveled deck too! I am looking forward to my return trip!
