Foote Cottage

Listing Tools

The Foote Cottage sits on the historic Tahawus Mine property located in Newcomb.

You will have a true Adirondack experience!

This gem is nestled in the High Peaks and near the source of the Hudson river. You will be minutes away from the Upper Works Trailhead Pass, a hikers paradise. Enjoy 800 acres of the Tahawus property with its many private roadways to hike, bike or drive. (There will be signs to direct you away from the mine area). If you’re looking to do some fishing or swimming there are two spring fed quarry lakes that have been stocked with Rainbow and Brook trout. The lakes are the second and third deepest lakes in the Adirondacks! There is a limit of 3 fish per day per person and they must be 15 inches or larger. (Must comply with NYSDEC guidelines and licensing). Row boats are there for your use.

Winter brings fat tire biking, snow shoeing and fabulous cross country skiing! During your outings the mountain views are stunning. Mt. Adams fire tower is visible from most areas as are some of the High Peaks such as Santanoni, Panther Mountain and Marshall Mountain.

Relax by the fire pit that is situated by the waters edge (firewood provided).

When you’re done with your day of exploring enjoy all the Foote Cottage has to offer.

The interior is authentic “Adirondack” where you can have fun in the great room playing pool, a game of cards at the game table or play the piano! Sit on one of the 3 porches and enjoy  the quiet.

Everything you’ll need to have a wonderful relaxing Adirondack vacation
