The pictures do it justice

  • 5 of 5

Why I like this place:

1. Fantastic views of the Adirondacks--it really does as good as the pictures. This former hunting lodge is located at the end of a private road extending up a hill, so it overlooks the forest and has 180 degree views of the surrounding mountains. You can enjoy the scenery from the cozy interior or outside on the porch/swings.

2. Location. 15 minutes from Cascade Mt. 30 minutes from Lake Placid. 45 minutes from Whiteface Mt. We were able to squeeze all three into one day, so it's a great launching pad for hiking adventures

3. Rustic, but not bare-bones. There are a lot of amenities--AC, heating, internet, full kitchen, washing machine, outdoor grill, etc.

4. Seclusion. It's a short drive away from the center of town, but feels like the middle of the wilderness. Even though the owners live in the main house nearby, you hardly know they're there.

5. Duke, their chocolate lab, is a really good boy

Bell Meadow Cottage is a great place to stay and offers a unique experience for those looking to explore the Adirondacks.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a quiet getaway in the mountains. The cottage was very clean, had everything we needed for a comfortable stay and the property owners gave us privacy. The pictures don’t do justice on the amazing views and cleanliness of the cottage. We can’t wait to visit again! I can’t say enough about how much we enjoyed staying here! Hammock swings were amazing, shower exceeded expectations for a mountain cottage, internet worked great to keep in touch with kids at home, everything we needed to make a meal in the cottage, comfortable sofa to just relax and enjoy the views. Perfect weekend! Awesome hosts!

Breathtaking Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to Bell Meadow Cottage my husband and I had one of the best vacations we have ever taken-- and it was even the middle of winter. The views from inside or outside the cottage are breathtaking and more so. The cabin is set up so you can take it all in sitting on the couch or even lying in bed. Looking out at the stars at night, or a red glowing sunset over the mountains made for very romantic moments. The cabin is not only very comfortable it is set up with some thought, so you have everything you need. The couch has two very comfortable built in recliners. the kitchen is well equipped for cooking and baking, there are bureaus to unpack into. It always felt cozy never crowded. The interior is wood paneled, making it warm and inviting. Highly recommend a stay here.We will certainly come back .
