About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom w/Q Bed; Futon in Living Room, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Welcome to the Cozy Cottage in the Heart of the Adirondack Mountains! It's nice to go away and feel at home. The cottage features a knotty-pine living room with futon for additional sleeping and a 40" tv w/2 usb ports. The well-equipped kitchen contains a full refrigerator/freezer, microwave, x-large toaster oven, toaster, coffee maker, glassware, silverware, plates, pots, pans, utensils, blender, crock pot, etc. The bathroom has a shower unit (no bathtub). And, the separate bedroom contains a queen-size bed with plenty of storage to unpack your suitcases, put everything away, relax, head out and enjoy. For your convenience, there is a compact washing machine, although small, to clean your clothes.

When a reply is sent that the cottage is available, the website will automatically send you an email requesting payment of one-half of the total to be sent in advance to confirm the reservation. There will be a 48 hour hold on your requested dates to allow you time to complete details on your end. The one half payment can be paid by credit card through this website.When the website sends a request for the one-half payment, you will notice a 'service fee' has been added to the quoted amount. This fee goes directly to the website. When I receive notice of your payment, I will send you an email to provide you with information regarding key retrieval, directions, etc.

Your well-behaved pet is welcome but you will be responsible for clean-up and damage due to your pet. Out of curtesy to others, please do not allow your pet on the couch or the bed. Also, please bring your pet's food/water bowls plus their bedding and a towel. There is a small back yard behind the cottage to walk your dog.

The cottage is reasonably priced and contains everything you need, other than your personal belongings and food/drink. There is a convenience store within walking distance which makes going out for forgotten or wanted items very easy without having to get back in the car & drive. There are several very good restaurants and shops either within walking distance or a short the scenery is beautiful.

Thank you for looking at this listing. I hope to hear from you.

What makes this cottage unique

The kitchen gives you the option to cook meals if you would like to save money plus enjoy a home-cooked meal or just to relax & reheat the leftovers from the restaurant. The 'in town' location allows you to walk to several shops, restaurants, etc. without having to get back into your car.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Dorothy & Ken, Thank you very much for the lovely time we had at the cozy cottage. We enjoyed it very much. The place is fantastic and you are very warm and kind people. The x-mas candies were a very pleasant (and delicious) surprise! Thank you for all the support and help with the snow...it was the most snow we have ever seen! Happy New Year!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and i just spent her birthday weekend at the cottage, the owners were so kind and helpful with information about local hot spots and restaurants. It couldn't have went any better. Beautiful weeked weather, lots of hiking, great food, and to come back to the cottage take a hot shower and rest &relax felt so good! Awesome time, can't wait to come back next year!!!!

Quite nice, we recommend it!

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable, well kept. Not only was the fire ready to light when we got there, but it was ready to light when we went out back to have another fire! It was neat and clean and they were friendly and helpful, but not in the way. They made a wonderful trip even more enjoyable.

Cute Little Cottage for an ADK Stay

  • 4 of 5

The cozy cottage is as described, small (cozy) but with all the necessary amenities. Kitchen area has everything you need. Plenty of space for 3 adults and 1 dog. The entryway is great for hanging things to dry and leaving muddy gear. The cottage is directly on the road to note for pets or small children. Quick showers (to scrub off all that Adirondack mud after a fun day exploring) are needed due to hot water limitations, but really if you want an affordable place that is central to Keene Valley and Lake Placid (and walking distance to the Keene Market for fresh donuts!) and have a place to come back to after adventuring all day, the cozy cottage worked just fine. Also, we really appreciate the option to bring our furry friend!

Cozy cottage is just that!

  • 5 of 5

Although it is small and not at all fancy, the cottage is everything it is represented to be- cozy, comfortable and a great place to stay while visiting the Adirondacks and Lake Placid region. The cottage is appointed with everything you need for a comfortable stay and Dorothy is a friendly and helpful hostess.

I was a little unsure if I would regret staying as far from Lake Placid as Keene, but it turned out to be a great location from which we had an easy drive to visit Whiteface, High Falls Gorge, and Ausable Chasm in addition to Lake Placid, Saranac Lake, and Tupper Lake.

A really pleasant find was Cedar Run Bakery and Market - a very short hop up the road. Many well prepared home-made dishes frozen for your easy preparation in your cottage, yummy desserts, and all kinds of lovely grocery treats. The cottage had everything we needed to create little feasts in our rental home away from home.

I would recommend the cottage for two people; it is small and would feel crowded with more.

You will enjoy your stay in Keene.

Comfortable accommodations

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cozy cottage during August 12-August 17. It was close to Lake Placid ( 13 miles) and Whiteface Mountain. The bed was comfortable and stores are close by. I think that it was nicer than a hotel room. You have more room to spread out. The cottage was clean. It was nice to have two TVs in the evenings. One TV is in the living area and the other in the bedroom.

Inside, the cottage was cozy and quaint however the porch area could use some attention

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at the cottage. It had everything we needed and more. It was very clean and comfortable. Even tho I didn't cook, the kitchen was well stocked.

Dorothy and Ken were great hosts. Will definitely return next Summer.

Owner's Response: Hi Margaret, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at the cottage and your visit with your grandkids, sister and family. You are right about the porch needing work. During a windstorm, the front door was blown off! I have a replacement ready to go, just waiting for a contractor. I hope to see you next year and you will notice a definite improvement! I look forward to seeing you again and having more laughs! Regards, Dorothy
