The Cottage where the Civil War General & 18th President of the U.S. spent his final days finishing his Memoirs and fighting his final battle with throat cancer.

Grant Cottage is a hidden treasure in the foothills of the Adirondacks.  It sits on top of Mt. McGregor and overlooks the Adirondack Mountains to the north, the Green Mountains to the east, and the Catskills to the south.  The view is breathtaking and was the last view of our area that General Ulysses S. Grant saw before his death in this historic cottage.  The Cottage has remained virtually unchanged since 1885 and still houses the bed on which he died and the funeral arrangements are still intact.  The clock on the mantle still remains where his son, Fred, stopped the hands at 8:08 a.m. on July 23, 1885 when his father passed away.

  We are open from Memorial Day to Labor Day, Wednesday through Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and from Labor Day through Columbus Day - Saturdays & Sundays only from 10 to 4.  The cost of admission is $5 Adults, $4 Seniors/Students, Children under 5, Military with ID, & Members are free.  We have a lovely gift shop with all new items made available through a grant from the Alfred Z. Solomon Charitable Trust.  A guided tour of the Cottage and the Overlook are included in the admission fee.  Come for an hour or an afternoon and take in the beauty and serenity of the mountain just as General Grant did 125 years ago.
