The Space

Whiteface Mountain and Lake Placid are a short ride from Adirondack Star Ridge Cottage which is nestled on a private and serene 30 acre property surrounded by thousands of acres of pristine timber land. Your mind and body will get the rest and peace it deserves. A great retreat for couples and small families (sleeps 4). As well as, those traveling solo who desire tranquility.

The cottage offers two bedrooms. The master bedroom has a queen Sleep Number mattress and plenty of closet space. The second bedroom has two twin size beds, a desk and a dresser.

The spacious bathroom includes a Jacuzzi steam shower with various jets to help you and your muscles relax after a long day on the slopes or after a vigorous hike or paddle.

A wrap-around, 700 square foot deck includes a propane grill and seating (in season) for lounging and eating outside at an umbrella-covered glass table.

Adirondack Star Ridge Cottage is equipped with high speed wireless, satellite TV with DVD/VHS player and assorted reading materials. There are board games and puzzles too! A wood stove with firewood included will keep you cozy even on the chilliest of days and nights. While you are out on your adventures, the radiant in-floor heating will welcome pleasure for your feet. In warmer seasons, full casement windows crank open for plenty of ventilation and light. There is NO air conditioning since most summer evenings cool down in the Adirondack Mountains and there is often a light breeze. Two ceiling fans and a box fan also help keep the air flowing inside.

Adirondack Star Ridge is located 5 miles from the rural town of Au Sable Forks where you will find a food market, bank (ATM), 3 restaurants and various shops including a pharmacy. The cottage is about 15 minutes from Whiteface Mountain and 30-35 minutes from Lake Placid and Plattsburgh. Burlington, VT is a short ferry ride away across scenic Lake Champlain, between the Adirondack Mountains and the Green Mountains. Another wonderful day trip option is Montreal. Both locations are about an hour and a half away! Passports required for Montreal.

Great hiking trails are available right outside the cottage door providing miles through thousands of acres of adjacent timberland full of logging skid trails!

We live on the property about a quarter mile away, close enough to be of assistance should you need or want it. Come stay at Adirondack Star Ridge Cottage be it two nights or several weeks! You won't regret it!

We look forward to meeting you,
Mini & Mike

  • Mike and Mini were absolutely delightful hosts. The cottage was a perfect place to return to after a long day of skiing and exploring. The accommodations were comfortable and we would definitely return again. Summer must be spectacular? Thank you again for wonderful hospitality and a magical place.

  • My friends and I had a wonderful time. Everything was perfect. It really felt like a home away from home. It seemed at every turn like Mike and Mini had thought of everything we might need. We will recommend it to our friends and we hope to be back soon!

  • Everything was lovely...this is not really a cottage but rather a very warm and attractive country home. Mike and Mini have put alot of effort in to details and making guests comfortable. Although we ran off for some near by hiking, I encourage guest to save time for savouring the peaceful lodgings and surrounding property!

  • Hard to say enough good things about Mini and Mike's Star Ridge Cottage. Location, privacy, natural beauty (the view from the ridge is exactly as appear in the pictures), comfort...Suffice it to say that this is very good vacation rental managed by two conscientious property owners. We experienced that perfect balance between being taken care of and being left alone. This one is going on my short list for visits to the Northeast. Thanks Mini and Mike!

    Thanks for the kind words John. We appreciate confirmation of the hard work and care that goes into both of our properties. Making your 'short' list is just fine with us--We welcome you back anytime you can make it!
    Cheers & be well,
    Mini & Mike

  • Mike and Minnie have created a little paradise in the Adirondacks! The cottage is spacious, comfortable, clean and charming. The quiet and the views are perfect - from the cottage and from their home a short walk up the road. We appreciated the advance information, the warm welcome, the generous invites to visit and the conversation. They loaned us maps and gave us ideas about hikes and sights. The steam shower was a treat, and the wood stove added ambiance and heated the cottage nicely; we never needed the radiant floor heat, but I bet it's nice in the winter! The location is perfect for Lake Champlain or Lake Placid touring - about equidistant to each. Go - enjoy the beauty and peace, with all the comforts of home.

  • Quiet getaway cottage, very clean and comfortable with lovely view walk nearby, great shower, private deck surrounded by forested mountains. This is a charming spot with very welcoming hosts. We enjoyed their spectacular location too. Very rural and low key...Lake Placid lunch 30 min. drive.

  • Mike and Mini do a fantastic job with the cottage. It was perfect for our family of 4. The kids had a great time playing on the deck and in the yard. The views from the property are wonderful. If you like to play in the outdoors this is the place to stay. Lots of hiking and mountain biking to be had. Montreal is only 2 hrs away too!

  • My friends and I had a wonderful stay at Star Ridge Cottage in the Spring. The deck is very spacious and was perfect for barbecuing. The house is secluded from the road and other homes so there weren't any ambient sounds, which made for a very relaxing and peaceful getaway. The shower is fantastic. My friends and I took a boat ride on Mirror Lake in Lake Placid, we spent a day in Burlington, Vermont which is just a short ferry ride away, and we hiked Mount Joe in Lake Placid. I highly recommend all of those activities. I will also add that Mini and Mike were gracious and helpful hosts. I encourage everyone to stay at their lovely home.
