Just 10.5 miles to Whiteface Mountain Ski Resort. Enjoy a stylish experience at this centrally-located cottage. Walk to Lake Placid restaurants, shops and activities. Open concept with well-equipped kitchen, comfortable living and dining. One king bedroom and one queen bedroom, both with new mattresses for a comfortable night's sleep. Updated bathroom with walk-in shower. Wooded backyard. Pet friendly. Close proximity to skiing, hiking and many more outdoor pursuits.

The space
This cottage was completely renovated in 2021. All furnishings are modern and new. The style is a fusion of mountain and mid-century modern. Casual comfort. Lots of natural light.

The open-concept kitchen/dining/living area is light and bright with views overlooking the backyard. A Keurig coffee station is stocked and ready for your arrival. The kitchen, with natural soapstone countertops, is outfitted with a high-performance induction cooktop, separate oven, full-size fridge and Bosch dishwasher. We also have a microwave, toaster, Instapot and extra electric hotplate. All the basics for cooking and baking.

The dining table comfortably seats four, and stools at the kitchen island offer additional seating options.

The living area has a three-person sofa and two lounge chairs to kick back and relax. Or binge watch your favorite streaming series on the 50" LG smart TV.

The home's bathroom has a roomy shower, good water pressure, and a generous single vanity. Sorry, no bathtub.

Both bedrooms have two windows and darkening shades so you can sleep in late. There's plenty of closet space for long-term guests, as well as a dresser in each bedroom. The beds are outfitted with cotton sheets, duvets, and a cozy blanket. There's an extra set of flannel sheets in the linen closet if you prefer.

Downstairs, the basement flex space has a desk and chair situated under a large picture window. It's a nice spot for remote working, or planning your next adventure. The window offers a tranquil view of the backyard.

You're welcome to use the full-size washer and dryer units that are located on the basement level. Although they're in an unfinished section of the basement, it's clean and well lit.

The backyard is wooded with lots of pine and maple trees that add a sense of privacy, even though we're within the village boundary. It's beautiful all four seasons. You might even catch a glimpse of a deer, a fox, or an Adirondack fisher passing through the back woods.

Where you’ll be

Lake Placid, New York, United States

This cottage is located in the Village of Lake Placid - named one of the most beautiful small towns in the U.S. You'll appreciate having great walkability to restaurants and shops along Saranac Ave and Main Street. We're just a few blocks from local favorites like Simply Gourmet, Saranac Sourdough, Mountain Mist ice cream and Enuf Pastries & Cheese. Down the hill on Main Street is Players, Top of the Park, Green Goddess, and many more.

The Kiwanis Teddy Bear Park with a kids' playground is three blocks away, and it’s a short drive to McKinley Street park (which is nice for dogs).

Our location also provides a perfect home base to explore the Adirondacks and this amazing outdoor playground -- great hiking, canoeing, biking, fishing, XC and downhill skiing, skating, as well as museums, shopping, restaurants and Olympic nostalgia.

You can walk to Jackrabbit XC trail and Lake Placid Peninsula trails. From the cottage, it's a four-mile loop to walk down and around Mirror Lake.

We're 10.5 miles to the Whiteface Mountain ski resort.

My husband and I are based in Texas and enjoy traveling with our dog Maddie. We own a vacation cottage in Lake Placid, NY, where we canoe, hike, ski and pursue all kinds of outdoor activities. I'm also an avid home cook, even when on vacation, and value a well-equipped kitchen. We take our dog nearly everywhere with us, and seek out dog-friendly patios and pubs. In addition to Houston, Austin and San Antonio, we've also lived in Nashville, Denver, Calgary and a few other towns in between.
