We had a very nice stay at the Star Ridge Cottage. It was definitely comfortable and well equipped. We were a little sorry we couldn't sit out on the deck for various reasons. The dampness and rain did not help the sitting area. The location was great for our activities and it was fun hearing the owl in the evening.
Our stay was very nice with many thing to do. Went fishing, visited lots of sites from past Olympics. Nice restaurants. Can't say enough about Mike & Mini !!!
The Star Ridge Cottage was the perfect Adirondack getaway. We stayed here July 2-5, 2018. The cottage was spotless, comfortable and well equipped with everything we needed. The wrap around deck was perfect to enjoy the sunrise with a cup of coffee as well as the tranquility in the evenings. We hiked around the property and enjoyed the peacefulness, scenery and amazing views. Especially the views from the ridge which were spectacular. The location of the cottage was perfect - private and secluded yet just a short drive to many area attractions. We visited a few area hiking trails, Lake Placid, Whiteface, Wilmington and Jay. Cobble Outlook was a nice hike with great views. Jay Covered Bridge and Jay rapids were a great way to cool off on a hot summer day. Mike, Mini (and Tierry) were excellent hosts. We definitely hope to go back someday
You can’t go wrong with this choice! Mike & Mini have a beautiful place and are excellent hosts! The Star Ridge Cottage is a little out of the way (about a 30 minute beautiful drive to Lake Placid) but that is what we were looking for! Our trip was in early March so we could enjoy some snow-shoeing in the ADK’s (we brought our own shoes but they have plenty of top quality ones for use). Mike & Mini allowed a few hours early check-in (with prior arrangements) and the cottage was ready for us when we arrived. The directions were spot on, the driveway was clear, a small walkway was shoveled to the cabin and around the deck. The cabin has everything you need (linen, towels, full kitchen, etc.), was very clean and welcoming. We really enjoyed the inside wood stove from the time we arrived until the morning we had to leave (plenty of wood is supplied). The only minor negative comment I could say is we felt slightly rushed when someone arrived to clean around 15-20 minutes before checkout but I’m sure they needed to get it ready for the next guest. We plan to return in the summer/fall and will look to book again!

Owners very attentive to all our needs. Terrific view of mountains from owner's house. House was very comfortable. Black carpenter ants came into house in significant number following a couple of very rainy days but the house is located in the woods so this happens.
