Cottage
Adk Star Ridge Cottage is simply a 'Peace' of Heaven. Located on 30 private & serene acres, it is adjacent to thousands of acres of pristine timberland. Neighbors are few and far between. In fact you have only ONE full time resident neighbor within 3/4 mile! They are a retired couple whose home is not in sight of the Cottage. You can expect peace & quiet with the sounds & smells of nature filling your senses. You may choose to simply lounge on the 750 sq.' deck with a drink at hand and the BBQ grilling away or hike a trail directly from the side door to explore the forests beyond. The cottage has games, puzzles, fiber optic wireless internet & satellite TV for those who prefer to stay indoors, but may still avail the views through many windows & doors.

The cottage has games, puzzles, fiber optic wireless internet & satellite TV for those who prefer to stay indoors, but may still avail the views through many windows & doors. The in-floor radiant heat feels great to your bare feet & the inviting, glowing heat of the wood stove will have you soon napping! Hop in the car or on your bikes and travel a few miles to the Jay 'rapids' where you can soak, slide & cool off in the AuSable River. Visit the Jay Green, home to JEMS theatre and outdoor concerts and Summer festivals. Pop in to local artisans shops such as the Jay Studio (on the Green) & Youngs Gallery (just up Rt. 86) or grab an ice cream at Devins in downtown Jay or Stewarts in AuSable Forks. Whiteface Mountain ski area is approximately 10-15 minutes from the cottage with all the other Olympic venues just around the corner near Lake Placid, home of the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympics. Stop off at the Ausable Chasm on your way toward Lake Champlain to view, hike or get wet in an awesome example of the raw force of nature. Catch a ferry to Burlington, Vt. for a cool day trip visiting Ben & Jerry ice cream factory, Vermont Teddy bear or about a dozen other cool destinations sure to put smiles on everyone in your family. Bring your passport or NY enhanced drivers license to pop over the border and visit Montreal, only 1.5-2 hours from the cottage! The sky is the limit and it all starts with a fresh rested start right here at Adk Star Ridge Cottage. Come & stay with us! More

About the neighborhood
Star Ridge cottage is located a quick 5 minutes from NY State highway 9N (about 15 minutes off Interstate 87- Adirondack Northway). We are the next to last drive off a cul-de-sac and one of only two full time residents on the street--making for a very quiet neighborhood!! If you have come to rest and regroup, this is the place. If you have come for peace and quiet, the Cottage is just for you. We welcome you to the Cottage, Adirondack Star Ridge. Thank you for your choice!
