The Space

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 (even on the ridgetop), 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 & Quebec City(3-4 hrs).

Great hiking trails are available right outside the cottage door providing miles through thousands of acres of adjacent timberland full of logging skid trails! It will most likely ONLY be you and the wilderness---the likelihood of encountering another human are slim to none. Peace & quiet!!

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

Guest Access

As guests of Mini and Mike you not only have full access to these 30 acres including the Star Ridge views (& firepit on some occasion--weather-depending) but ALSO to the thousands of acres of adjacent timberland full of hiking & log skid trails.

Interaction with Guests

We like to say we are close enough but far enough! In other words, we live 1/4 mile further up the drive and are available if you need us and of course, we welcome 'Hello's'. Otherwise, we leave you to your peace and quiet. Since there are no other full time residents on the street and no homes or camps within sight of the cottage--plenty of tranquility! We welcome your questions anytime since your time is special to us.

The Neighborhood

We enjoy the peace and quiet of Star Ridge here on Black Mountain Rd. and we wish to share that with you, our guests. The Western panorama is forever changing and even the peaceful Eastern views from the cottage are spectacular in their own realm. Night skies are even more pronounced from the cottage deck so bring a telescope or binoculars or simply your smartphone with a star-finder App.

Getting Around

You must have a vehicle in the Adirondacks unless you are staying in a major town such as Lake Placid. Star Ridge Cottage is 5 miles from Au Sable Forks center--a quick 10 min. jaunt for fuel, pizza, bar, pharmacy, liquor store, bank and others. Driving directions from all directions can be found on the cottage's web page, www.adkstarridge.com.

Other Things to Note

Come explore Adirondack Star Ridge cottage and surrounding area for peace, rest, hiking or winter sports and uncountable other adventures or not! Remember the steam shower, wood stove and total tranquility await anytime for those who just want to prop their feet UP!
