The cottage was just perfect for our romantic, two night getaway. We loved our stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have picked a better place to stay. It was cozy. Comfortable. And Clean. We were in a perfect location to the best areas in Lake Placid. And attention to detail from plush towels to homemade cookies were a perfect touch. We will be back.

Owner's Response: Thank you Amy and Jose! I’m so glad you enjoyed your stay and so appreciate your nice review. You went out of your way to leave the Cottage all organized and clean for me. It wasn’t expected as you are expected only to enjoy yourselves taking a break from housekeeping, but I most appreciate it. Look forward to having you again! Cathy

Cozy, quaint, comfortable and close to Main Street!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was so warm, comfortable and inviting. And having “the little things” like coffee, creamer, fresh fruit and even fresh baked cookies upon arrival was just the absolute icing on the cake! We loved being able to take a quick walk to Main Street, even if it was negative double digit temps and a steep incline! (If you’re an active individual, the walk is manageable.) Word to the wise, my fiancé (we got engaged this weekend at the cottage!) and I like to sleep in cooler temperatures and Cathy makes sure she has the cottage nice and toasty for your winter arrival so we suggest making sure the thermostat is at the low end of the comfort zone before heading to bed. Since heat rises and you’re in the top of the cottage, it was a little warm the first night (our fault) but perfectly comfortable the second! We didn’t get to enjoy the hot tub because of temperatures holding at -20 degrees give or take but Cathy is sweet enough to write you a note letting you know you can use the Bluetooth speaker from the cottage and that towels are provided! Little things like this truly make the difference! If you book at the cottage, you won’t be disappointed!

Amazing, cozy cabin in the heart of Lake Placid!

  • 5 of 5

My friend at I stayed at the Highland Cottage for two nights and went hiking in the Adirondacks. The place was just what we needed - close to everything and very comfortable and relaxing. The kitchen was fully stocked, the hot tub was great after a long day of hiking and check in was super easy. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting Lake Placid!

Quiet and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Loved all the extra touches and info on things to do Lake Placid.

Would advise anyone who's a bit large in stature that the loft might not fit them.
