Overview

U.S. Grant Cottage State Historic Site is the final home of Ulysses S. Grant, Civil War Commanding General of the U.S. Army, 18th U.S. President and beloved American public figure.

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. 

We are open from Memorial Day to Labor Day, Wednesday through Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., plus bonus Tuesdays during Saratoga Track Season (July 16th - August 27th), and from Labor Day through Columbus Day - Saturdays & Sundays only from 10 to 4. 

The cost of admission is $6 Adults, $5 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 is included in the admission fee.
