Perfect Cottage in Lake Placid

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful little cottage. It is cozy and sweet and Cathy has thought of everything. Perfect location; just a short walk to Main Street. We had beautiful weekend and it was so nice to have such a great place as our "home" base. We had everything we needed. We would definitely stay here again and would definitely recommend it.

Always perfect

  • 5 of 5

I always look to rent this chalet. Perfect location to town but quiet. Friendly and hospitable owner, including fresh baked cookies and apples. Comfortable and clean cottage. I can't wait to return.

Perfect Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent our honeymoon in Lake Placid 25 years ago. We have returned quite a few times over the years. We have stayed in many different places each time but the Highland Cottage is our new favorite! Cathy has really made it a home away from home. It is cozy, extremely clean and adorable. It is very nicely decorated with Adirondack furnishings and has everything you made need. She literally has thought of everything! The location is super convenient so we were able to walk into town to shop, eat and go ice skating at the Olympic Oval. It was just a short drive to Whiteface where we went skiing. We enjoyed the hot tub one night after a day on the slopes as well as the gas fireplace. It was wonderful! I would absolutely HIGHLY recommend this cottage to anyone. If you are looking for a place that is cozy, comfortable, clean and convenient- then this is the place for you!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words Kelly! I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay at the Cottage and I really hope you'll come back. You guys left the place so immaculate it made my quick turnover such a breeze. No necessary but truly appreciated! There's no way you two have been married 25 years! I wish I'd know. Best wishes for year 26 and beyond! Cathy

Fall Hiking Trip To Lake Placid

  • 5 of 5

I don't know where to begin! It was everything we were hoping for and more. It is such a cozy, romantic cottage. My boyfriend Jim and I arrived very late on a Thursday night, we were very excited to see that there were some yummy chocolate chip cookies waiting for us as we walked inside. The cottage is very well equipped with everything you would need for a nice stay. We arrived very late that night so we just passed out on the bed, which was very comfortable and warm. There are a lot of cute touches to the cottage including several books filled with memories of all the guests that have stayed at the cottage. I thought that it was really cool to read all of the beautiful things that the people before us enjoyed. I would have to say that the best part of the cottage for us was the hot tub!! We hiked Owl's Head on Friday and Rooster Comb Mountain Saturday so being able to soak our legs in the warm water was a life saver. Overall the cottage made our stay even more memorable and enjoyable. I would HIGHLY recommend this cottage to any couple, or anyone for that matter that just wants some time to relax and unwind from their day to day life. Make sure to say hello to Cathy's adorable dogs on your way out the door! The Smaller dog, Oliver loves to wait outside the door for some love :) Thank you again Cathy for such a wonderful stay!

Perfect vacation stay

  • 5 of 5

We booked three nights in the cottage and would have loved to stay longer. The cottage is cozy and comfortable with all the necessary amenities. The gas fireplace was great to use at night and early in the morning. We loved using the hot tub after skiing also. The cottage is a short walk into town also making it extremely convenient and well located. We loved our stay and will absolutely be back!

Everything we wished for...

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a post-Thanksgiving romantic getaway and the Highland Cottage was exactly what we wanted. Once we arrived, the location of the cottage made it such a convenient walk to all the attractions in town that our vehicle never moved until we departed. Although we never met or spoke with Cathy, it was immediately clear that she knows how to make her guests feel at home. Beginning with a personalized note on the door for our arrival and a plate of cookies on the table, there was no lack of personal touches and a keen awareness of the potential needs of her guests... from the premium coffee already available to the bottled water thoughtfully placed beside the bed. Those touches and a wonderfully cozy and clean cottage made our stay everything for which we had hoped. It was so comfortable that we decided to stay in one night, reheat Thanksgiving leftovers in the well appointed kitchen, and simply enjoy the cottage. We wish we could have stayed longer and can't wait to come back again.
