Lake Placid Garden Cottage at the Whiteface Club and Resort on Lake Placid Lake...A cottage for all seasons!

Rest, relax & rejuvenate. Welcome to the Garden Cottage!
Whether you are celebrating a special occasion, choose a cozy winter stay, a summer vacation, or a romantic honeymoon, the Garden Cottage is the perfect choice! It is just like staying in your own private and elegant luxury suite! The Cottage has a stone fireplace stocked with ample firewood and cozy amenities to make a memorable visit.

Enjoy the ambiance of the historic Whiteface Club and Resort, including a private beach, lakeside dining, marina, 18-hole championship golf course, and clay tennis courts. The area also offers trekking and cross-country ski trails...all within walking distance.

Garden Cottage was originally an open-air 'smoking gazebo' created for the original Whiteface Inn. It is said that gentlemen would retire here to enjoy a brandy and a cigar after their meal at the Inn. Over time, additions were added to create a bedroom, bathroom, dining room and kitchen. The original stone hearth, stone floors, and living room with its cathedral beam ceiling remain.
Returning guests often mention how rustic and authentic it is, yet fully equipped with modern amenities.

The bedroom was designed to feel like sleeping out in the woods with an amazing real birch tree headboard, however, no sleeping bag needed here, as our fluffy feather bed compares to boutique hotel comfort.

Our attention was driven on finding rare pieces of furniture and antiques from the surrounding region, like our latest addition, which is a custom made dining table from master craftsman Steve Bowers. As you sit on the Westport chairs in the privacy of the large perennial garden, enjoy the smell of the surrounding woods and calming sound of the loons in the distance.

Enjoy the reawakening of the Adirondacks in the spring when the garden’ flowers and berries are in bloom and the last of the ice is melting on the lake.
During the summer, steps away from the front door, take a dip in the purest water of Lake Placid after a wonderful hike or boat ride.
In the fall, you can enjoy the splendor of a nature walk in the beauty of the foliage.
The winter season offers virgin snow for your first tracks on cross-country skis and snowshoes. You can also sit by the fire and enjoy a nice glass of wine.

The Cottage is only a few minutes’ drive to the lovely town of Lake Placid. It is a historic Olympic village that offers lots of shopping, dining options, gourmet shops and antique galleries on Main Street.

Please take advantage of all you find here. We hope the cottage becomes your home during your stay in Lake Placid and that you find it a pleasant retreat to return to, season after season.

Why Lake Placid:
We visited the Cottage randomly and knew at first sight that it would be our Lake Placid dream home. We are very emotionally attached to it and try to come as often as we can. Every visit, we add new items, whether it comes from the neighborhood antique galley or have it custom made. We are delighted to welcome each guest to enjoy it as if it was their own: welcome to the Garden Cottage family!
