The location was perfect for us w/ many miles of hiking trails all within a short drive of the cottage (and the beautiful trails for Whiteface are so close!). The Wilderness Inn next door has great steaks and we loved having drinks on the Ausable river at Mcdougal's. The cottage itself was very spacious with a lot of character. We enjoyed spending time in the great room & on the front porch. The large kitchen came in handy too when we wanted to stay in and cook.
We loved our stay at brookside cottage! The house has a large front porch with ample space to lounge or have a meal with family. The backyard fire pit, with surrounding Adirondack chairs, was a great way to end our day after exploring Lake Placid and hiking on the nearby trails.
