“Heaven in a nutshell”
Reviewed June 26, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Looking for an idyllic spot to return to after a day's hike in the Adirondacks? Then Adirondack Star Ridge is the right place for you. The cottage lies high above Ausable Forks and enjoys a splendid outlook. Need to know more? The light comes in from all the sides and makes up for whatever dark day it would choose to be. The kitchen is a housewife's dream with everything within handreach. The beds are comfortable. And the bathroom, wow! You come back weary and muddy? Give yourself the treat of a steam shower, and your tired limbs are revived. Fed-up with the mosquitoes swarming around your head and sucking the blood out of you? The cottage is completely sealed off: you get the fresh air from the open windows and doors, but keep the nasty little creatures outside. Star Ridge is a dream, I tell .you. We had the privilege to stay there for 5 days, and wish it would have been longer.
The owners are the sweetest people on earth: they'll give you all the privacy you need, but are around whenever you need them (like for first help against mosquitoes, travel advice, watching the sunset from their own garden). You'll leave with a smile on your face and good memories in your heart :-)

“Relaxing, quiet and convenient.”
Reviewed June 15, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

This cottage is very private and makes you feel like you are surrounded by nature, providing a fantastic view from the porch. It offers a comfortable and home-like feel while providing some luxurious elements like the fantastic shower and spacious kitchen. It is conveniently located to drive to Lake Placid, or many of the hikes in the Adirondacks.
You would not regret staying here even if the weather does not cooperate!

Thank you for your great review of the cottage, Adirondack Star Ridge. We strive to offer the best that we can and want our guests' expectations surpassed! Unfortunately, we can do nothing about weather, great or challenging as it may be.
We look forward to hosting you both whenever you find yourself back this way.

Many thanks for your warm words. Mini and I had enjoyed the cottage's space for 7 years until we built a larger home (for all our visiting family & friends!) up the ridge line. We are very pleased that we can now share with great folks like yourself the cottage that once welcomed us on so many weekends and eventually full time. We look forward to your return!
