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.

P.S. Due to internet interruptions, if you email me and do not receive a reply within 24 hours, please give me a call and leave a message.

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!

Exactly what we were looking for!

This old fashioned, cozy cabin was perfect for the two of us. Dorothy and Ken were friendly and helpful and the location was central to the sites we wanted to see. We would definitely consider staying there again.

The cottage was quaint and tidy. It has all the essentials one would need in a rental house.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was just as it appeared in the photos. It was clean and it was well stocked with dishes, linens, as well as information about the area. It has a great location near many high peaks and Lake Placid.

Cozy as can be

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited the area twice within a month in order to train and race for the triathlon. The cottage was the perfect place as a home base. We loved the homey feel and walking distance for food and drinks. Definitely recommend the Keene Cottage!

Great location and very comfortable for our stay.

  • 5 of 5

We are a retired couple traveling without pets, this cottage was just right for us. It is in the Adirondack Mountains and close to several towns, lakes, and many walking and hiking trails. Inside it is comfortable, and quiet. The kitchen is well equipped. The owners are very helpful and friendly, just call or email and they respond right away. We would stay there again.

Owner's Response: Hi Dorothy, I'm glad you had a wonderful visit for your first time in the Adirondack Mountains. The weather was certainly beautiful. It was nice to hear your stories about all the places you went which also included family visits to Bert's relatives. I hope your return drive to Florida went well. It was a pleasure to meet both of you and a first for me meeting another 'Dorothy'! Regards, Dorothy

GREAT!!!

  • 5 of 5

Cottage was perfect for a couple looking to get away to the Adirodaks. Cottage was stocked with everything you could hope: plates, cups, silverware, cookware, cooking utensils and even tinfoil/saran wrap/zip lock bags. There is tons to do around the cottages. Trailheads for hiking are within 5 minutes and lake placid is an easy drive away. My wife and I had a great time staying at the cottage and would definitely stay there again if we go back.
