Annie's cottage is wonderful. Close to Lake placid, with the Ausable River flowing right next to the cottage and the whiteface mountains so close by, it is the perfect place to be. Its not more than a 20min drive to each of these locations.
The cottage itself is located in picturesque valley with backdrop of the mountains. While the view was spectacular, the night sky was even more so. The porch that runs all around the front of the cottage and the open deck at the back are the perfect viewing points. My little niece had a wonderful time running around the vast open space all around the house. The interiors of the home itself is very thoughtfully done- updated and sparkly clean and very well stocked. It has an open layout so we had fun evenings chatting and preparing our meals together and our breakfasts were on the deck just off the kitchen soaking up the sun with the backdrop of the trees and the mountains.
All in all we had a wonderful family vacation in Annie's cottage and it was very difficult to say goodbye. I waiting for my next vacation there.
Was a nice relaxing place to stay. Had all the amenities and some. Highly recommended. Bring binoculars to enjoy the local wildlife in the meadows.
I was at the Ausable camp in July 2016, for 3 days...it was a memorable stay. We could have planned for couple more days of stay, unfortunately, I had to return to work.
The highlight of our 3-day trip was our stay at the cottage - very private, yet easily accessible from most attractions.
My 6 year old kid had fun too...huge meadow surrounding the cottage, she loved playing there that she did not want to leave.
The kitchen had almost everything...well equipped and clean. The furniture were nice (especially the couch in the living room). What I like the most is that there is so many glass windows in the living room...that when you sit on the couch with the window blinds unleashed, you almost feel like sitting on the meadow.
I would love to plan another vacation to Adirondacks soon (a lengthy one this time) and that's mainly to enjoy the stay at this cottage. The owner (Annie) was so nice and kind. She briefly visited us on the first day...just to share some maps, info. on the nearby attractions and ensure we were all set for the fun.
It was, on the whole, a very memorable stay.
The cottage is most lovely in great location, very well equipped with everything you need and the owner is very nice and helpful. We will recommend our friends...
Great views and private location. Well maintained and equipped. Quiet and relaxing. No Complaints. Owner very helpful and always available by phone. Very likely to return again in the future
I was looking to get away for the weekend to relax and possibly get some hiking/excursions in. The cottage was perfectly located for that and is fully equipped with anything you need. The living room is very relaxing the walls are pretty much all windows giving it an open vibe. The cable and sound worked great! I haven't had cable in years so I would know. The kitchen is fully equipped. Down to a blender and salad mixer. The bed is a bit hard but if that is an issue don't worry there is extra comforters and blankets that could be used. The land is nestled deep enough in the woods to give almost perfect privacy (You can catch a glimpse of RT 9 from the front porch). Sits right on the Ausable River (canoes were waiting on the property..) And the view was great! I watched a family of deer have dinner were I was far enough away as to not disturb them. The view is pretty massive. I got to hang out at Lake Placid, hiked Whiteface Mountain, and discover High Falls Gorge. All within a 20-30 minute drive. The drives to these places wasn't a bother either, considering the views. If you single and looking to just get away, a couple, family, or just a group of friends, I highly recommend this cottage.
My husband and I spent a peaceful week at Adirondack Cottage. The cottage is adorable and all the windows provide for excellent views of the surrounding meadow, forest and mountains in addition to the wildlife. We so enjoyed watching the deer and turkeys. What a surprise to look out the window while brushing my teeth and see a small flock of turkeys making their way through the yard. We loved the bedroom with it's king size bed and large window but found the bed too hard for our taste, but fortunately the beds upstairs were softer so we pushed the twin beds together and slept up there. The location was centrally located for us and we explored Whiteface Mtn. and Lake Placid as well as Elizabethtown and Lake Champlain. The only advice I would give to travelers to this area and not just this cottage (especially if you come from an area where you're used to the convenience of multiple stores and restaurants), is to bring what you will need for dinner and breakfast the next morning. Then you can venture out the next day to shop. Lake Placid has 2 major grocery stores and many restaurants. The only complaint would be no TV. Great place for a couples get away!! The owner was great to work with!!
