We had a wonderful lunch on a rainy day, and we were so cozy inside. The food is delicious! Be forewarned, the salad is HUGE.

A little off the beaten track, more locals than tourists which is a plus. Great little lakeside terrace shielded from the wind for cool days. We either drop in for lunch after golf, sit on the terrace with a beer and sandwich or drop in...More

Parking isn't easy on a weekend in Lake Placid, so when saw a spot in front of the Cottage, we took it as a sign we were supposed to stop in. The view is wonderful and so is the hospitality. The "build your own" Bloody...More

My husband and I stopped in for a drink and snack. The cheese plate was incredible! Generous portions and variety. The view is lovely both inside and out on the patio. The Cottage is a must stop for us on every trip to Lake Placid.

The view is always beautiful, even on a cloudy, rainy day. The dining room may be small, no outdoor dining this time of year, but the food always fresh and satisfying. Nice luncheon selection.More
