We are a family of 5 and have been coming to this area for many years now, every year. We like to rent different cottages for the experience of it, however, we decided to return to the Brookside cottage and will be doing it next year again.
With three small children, the cleanliness (e.g. brand new dish sponge) is something that ranks high on our list. Kitchen is well equipped, laundry has good washer and dryer, the covered porch is amazing. We like the layout and the spirit of the house, it is warm and inviting.
Our children enjoyed exploring the trail in the backyard and we felt safe letting them play on the porch while we were setting the table for our breakfasts there while watching the sun go up.
Jon and Nicole are excellent hosts, kind, friendly and accommodating.
We will see you next year and looking forward to it.
This was the perfect location for visiting Whiteface Mountain, Santa's Workshop and Lake Placid. The cottage had everything you could ask for and is perfect for a large family. We enjoyed our stay and will stay again if ever in the area.
Whiteface Brookside cottage has everything you want for a get away. The living space is fantastic with a great fireplace. There were 5 of us and you never get in each others way. There's the babbling brook that you can hear while you sit around the firepit in the backyard. Just 15 minutes from downtown Lake Placid which we took full advantage of. This was the second time we have stayed there and it will not be our last!
This is our sixth stay at this wonderful cottage, in a fantastic location. The cottage is so close to many fantastic hikes (of all levels), the village of Wilmington, Lake Placid. The owners have always been helpful with suggestions for the area, and very accommodating. The cottage is spacious, well appointed and feels like home away from home.
Would highly recommend renting this property.
The Brookside Cottage was perfect for our family get together. Great location, cottage was clean, beds were comfy, all the amenities we needed. Jon was very helpful in providing recommendations for hikes, groceries,restaurants etc. Will definitely stay there again.
