Little Red is a historic cure cottage located at Saranac Lake, Franklin County, New York. It was built about 1885 and moved about 1890, 1920, and 1935. It is a small, rectangular, 14 feet by 18 feet, one room wood frame building covered by a jerkin head gable roof. Simple posts support a decorative gable roof over a small front porch. It was the original cure cottage of the Adirondack Cottage Sanitarium founded by Dr. Edward Livingston Trudeau and the second building of the institution.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1992.[1]
