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 the Owner

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

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!

Cozy Adirondack Cottage

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed a wonderful weekend at the Garden Cottage! We immediately felt right at home here. The decor is unique and the owners have included many thoughtful amenities. We chose to cook a couple of meals while we were there and found the kitchen more than met our needs. Peaceful and quiet, beautiful wooded location. Highly recommend!!

Delightful

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved our stay at the Garden Cottage. My husband and I were looking for a peaceful and romantic getaway and we found just what we were looking for. The cottage was comfortable, cozy, beautifully decorated, and equipped with everything we needed. We enjoyed the wonderful restaurants and shopping that downtown Lake Placid offered. And the owners were a pleasure to deal with. We highly recommend the Garden Cottage and hope to return some day soon!

Great Personality

  • 5 of 5
Romantic 1 bedroom cottage in resort compound...Was fearful that it would feel unauthentic due
to location on the resort, but the cottage was built long ago for men to have a drink and cigar after dinner away
from the women!! so very lovely. Owners have added to it with well appointed kitchen, bedding, stereo,
etc. Doggies were very happy too.

Beautiful / quaint winter cottage

  • 5 of 5
The cottage is as wonderful as it is in the pictures and was the perfect getaway week for our stay. What we loved the most about the cottage was all the little stuffs--things we didn't think we need or to bring but made our stay all the more enjoyable and felt right at home!

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!
