Property type house

About the property

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.

Great place to enjoy a great get-a-way!!

  • 5 of 5

JoAnn is a wonderful host! She is very easy to communicate with and very accommodating.

The property is beautiful. Far enough away from town to feel remote, relaxing, and rejuvenating. Yet close enough to Lake Placid to have a Night Out on the town if you need one.

It is really an ideal location for any activity in the Beautiful Adirondack region.

Hiking, climbing, snowshoeing, skiing, sight seeing, and perhaps best for fishing as the property is right on the Ausable River.

There are 2 rental cabins on the property, as well as the owners home.

The other cabin was occupied during our stay, yet we never knew anyone else was there, except for seeing the occasional vehicle come and go.

The cabin was well equipped, very modern, yet rustic enough with plenty of Pine Board tongue and groove.

We had 3 guys with climbing gear and were very comfortable as long as one person doesn't mind sleeping on the pull-out couch.

I will not hesitate to contact JoAnn next year for our annual Ice Climbing Pilgrimage to the Daks!!

Fantastic place, JoAnn is so nice

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I went to the Lake Placid for sightseeing and stayed in the Riverside Cottage for 3 nights. It was a cozy and warm place. Everything was well decorated and carefully placed. The furniture was new and comfortable, and the internet was fast.

JoAnn is very very nice. After I booked the cottage, she sent me the traveling tips and locations of supermarkets and restaurants, which was really helpful, for it saved us plenty of time. Considering that we arrived late, she even prepared cheese, chips, yogurt and orange juice for us before we arrived. During the time we were there, she was always around and ready to help.

I give it 5 stars because the upper limit is five, it worth ten in my heart

I stayed here for a day as part of a quiet weekend getaway with my parents and we all loved it. The cottage was well equipped, clean and cozy! Almost everything was in order and we liked how the space was well utilized. Proximity to the lakes was also a plus, although we didn't venture out much because of the cold and snow. The cottage is exactly like how the pictures portray it to be.

JoAnn, the cottage owner, is very friendly and responsive to your questions via emails/texts. I would definitely want to come and stay at this cottage the next time I am in ADK!

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.
