Riverside Cottage


Property Details

Updated: Nov 28, 2016
House, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 3 Sleeps

Welcome to Riverside Cottage on River Road in Lake Placid. The property is located on the banks of

the Ausable River, one of New York State’s premier trout fishing streams. Whether you are looking

for a quiet getaway or a fast–paced adventure, this new cottage is the perfect place to enjoy the

splendor and diversity of the Adirondack Mountains. Riverside provides exceptional comfort in a

secluded setting minutes from downtown Lake Placid and its numerous shops, restaurants and athletic


Anglers can step directly into the West Branch at Cody’s Flats and wade to trophy

trout and catch & release areas just minutes downriver. In winter, enjoy downhill skiing at

Whiteface Mountain (12 minutes away). Hop onto the nearby Jackrabbit Trail for access to a network

of trails designed for cross-country ski and snowshoe enthusiasts. Whether you are 5 or 75, the

many walking and hiking trails of the Adirondacks offer spectacular views and one-of-a kind

experiences. Join the runners and cyclists who use River Road (located on the Ironman course!) for

year-round recreation and training.

Remember…the solitude offered by Riverside’s location makes

this cottage a perfect place for those seeking to do nothing other than to take a break or visit

some place new. Put your feet up, read a book and be lazy for a while!

Personal travels make me willing to accommodate individual requests, so let me know what you need

and I will do my best to provide it. I am happy to make arrangements ($20.00 hourly fee) for the

local market to fill a grocery list prior to your arrival. My hope is to offer the most comfortable

and pleasant environment for your visit that I can.

Such a wonderful little cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I choose to take a long weekend away in lake Placid and this cottage was more than perfect for our stay! After an eventful day of being tourist, this was the perfect place to come back to to make dinner and relax. JoAnn was a wonderful host and had everything we needed ready for us when we got there! This cottage made me fall in love with tiny house living!

We cannot wait to plan out next weekend away to one of JoAnn's cozy cottages!

Perfect Cottage - Cozy but Modern

  • 5 of 5

We had a great two night stay at the cottage for our anniversary. It is perfectly tucked away in a corner of the property, so it feels private, but without being far from civilization. Everything was spotless and just as pictured. The finishes all felt new and clean while being cozy at the same time. We were able to enjoy breakfast at "home" in the well equipped kitchen, It's an easy drive into town and a great place to be if you want to feel like you are on a quiet retreat. JoAnn was easy to communicate with and checking in and out couldn't have been smoother.

Peaceful awesome little home.

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed the peace and quiet at Riverside! The little log cabin was absolutely wonderful, very comfortable bed and all we needed for cooking meals in each night of our one week stay. We so enjoyed sitting on the screened in porch at the end of a full day of hiking, listening to the quiet! The stars on the clear nights provided an awesome show! The location was perfect for exploring the Adirondacks and the village of Lake Placid while being remote. JoAnn was very accommodating with anything we needed while keeping our privacy. We would definitely stay here again if we come back to this area.

Great cottage, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent stay at Riverside! The cottage exceeded our expectations. It was neat, clean, very well-kept and nicely equipped (listing / photos were very accurate and give a good sense of the place). For us the location was perfect - felt like it was back in the woods but a very short drive to town. Also a short trip to many High Peaks trails, which we really enjoyed and highly recommend (but do your homework before you go if inexperienced) and the cool little town of Keene.

Great experience with JoAnn, she was easy to work with, good communication, a real pro. And she has a wealth of knowledge about the Lake Placid area.

We wouldn't hesitate to return and strongly recommend Riverside if you're planning an Adirondack adventure!

Perfect - quiet, serene, spotless, comfy

  • 5 of 5

We loved Riverside Cottage. JoAnn was a wonderful hostess. The cottage was spotless, felt spacious and had everything we could have wished for. The bed was extraordinarily comfortable. We brought breakfast items with us and loved eating breakfast each day on the screened porch. The location was great - private yet only 10 minutes or less from downtown Lake Placid. We savored our lakeside dinner at the Cottage Cafe (try the Brussels sprouts salad! in LP, and also outdoors at Lisa G's. Highly recommend both. Also recommend the Mount Jo hike - tough but short and the views make it all worthwhile! The Olympic Ski Jump was incredible and we also enjoyed watching the freestyle skiers practice, landing in the water. The 2 1/2 mile stroll around Mirror Lake in Lake Placid provided non-strenuous exercise and an opportunity to view some gorgeous lakeside home.

Already planning our next stay at Riverside!

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I popped up for a 4-day 3-night stay to explore Lake Placid and the surrounding area. WE LOVED THIS COTTAGE!

The space itself is gorgeous, capturing the rustic spirit of the Adirondacks with modern amenities and finishes. We both fell in love with the screened-in porch and spent most of our time lounging outside on the wicker chairs and listening to nature at work around us. Imagine the sounds of a rushing river, wind rustling through the trees, and the occasional song of a white-throated sparrow. A perfect place to come and unwind after hiking and sight-seeing!

Side notes, the space was VERY CLEAN and JoAnn was very hospitable throughout our stay! We are already planning a return trip!
