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.

ADK Garden Cottage July 2014

Review submitted: July 28, 2014   Date of arrival: July 26, 2014

My wife and I (and our 2 dogs) have been vacationing in the Adk's for the past 10 years. This was our first stay at the Garden Cottage and it was wonderful!
It was exactly as described and is perfectly located; short walk to the private beach, hiking trails, etc.
We highly recommend the Garden Cottage.

Recommended for: pet-friendly

Owners response: Thank you for visiting! We enjoyed welcoming you and look forward to your return.

It is a sweet little cottage .. and little is a serious word.

Review submitted: July 16, 2014   Date of arrival: July 5, 2014

The cottage has everything needed for a wonderful and comfortable stay. The kitchen, tiny, has absolutely EVERYTHING you need in high quality equipment. The bed is quite high but thankfully a step ladder was found with the Washer/dryer. It was very chilly several nights -- in the 40s and we pieced together woolie blankets from the living room. A warm king blanket would not be amiss. Plenty of steaming hot water in the shower. The toilet was very low -- if ever a re-do of the bathroom happens, then one that is designed for adults would be great. The gardens are beautiful. When you arrive and park behind the cottage, the grass is not mowed which in truth does not do justice to the house nor its front lawn/garden. The mowers were there twice but said their instruction was not to mow the area between the car park and the cottage. Might want to revisit that. We were grateful for the dining out guidance. LOVED sitting in the front on that super bench with cushions to read and throw toys for the dog. Its tough to go with the dog to the water...in fact, its not really possible. The people beach, naturally does not want dogs there. Perhaps some steps down into the lake at the access point?
We had a great stay and hope these ideas are useful. Best, Jill & Jim Sheffield

Owners response: We are very happy you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for all the great suggestions!
