vacation rental description

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.

traveler reviews for this wilmington cottage rental

Charming, Rustic, Quiet

Review submitted: March 22, 2014   Date of arrival: March 10, 2014

these are the first three words that come to mind as I entered the Garden Cottage. They still come to mind as I write this after returning home. My wife, Golden retriever Thor and I spent 3 nights here. We cooked every meal here, cross country skied and snow shoe within walking distance, watched tv in bed, but most of all relaxed in front of the fire with e-reader and IPad on Wifi between our games of cribbage. Not that this was enough, we included a fantastic skate on Monday evening on the Olympic Oval outdoor ice pad. I am a very light sleeper and the quiet area of the Cottage was perfect. I guess the area must be known for this since I came across a lone gal camped out in the hills on one ski trail. I hope she survived the 1.5 foot snow fall and drop in temperature. Our third trip to Lake Placid definitely not our last.

Fabulous March Break getaway!!

Review submitted: March 14, 2014   Date of arrival: March 3, 2014

This was our second stay at the Garden Cottage!
It was exactly as we remembered!! No... It was even better!
As we opened the door, we felt like invited and awaited guests!!!
The cabin is so cozy and comfortable, the kitchen fully equipped, the bathroom perfect and clean, the bedroom so inviting and the bed...is like heaven!!
The kids enjoyed sleeping in front of the fireplace and our dog loved tagging along!!
The surroundings are beautiful and so quiet, but the activities bustling: skiing, snowshoeing, shopping, bobsledding, skating, we did it all!!!
We definitely will be back for a third stay!

Thank you Mary and Ben, for thinking of absolutely EVERYTHING!!!

wonderful winter getaway

Review submitted: February 27, 2014   Date of arrival: February 15, 2014

We spent a couple of days in the middle of one of this winter’s worst freeze spells in this wonderfully cozy cottage and the worst of winter turned into the best of times. The cottage was very warm and welcoming. Mary and Ben thought of everything and our stay in their cottage was very comfortable. The cottage is very clean, well maintained and tastefully decorated. We are looking forward to making a return trip there and hopefully next time we will enjoy the view of the garden under all that snow.

Owners response: Thank you!! We are so happy you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back.
