Overview

About the property

2 Queen Bedrooms, 2 full Bathrooms, Sleeps 6 including Adirondack futon

Adirondack-style log home and located on the Ausable River with mountain views of Whiteface! Enjoy the Adirondacks based out of this perfect log chalet with rustic charm, views, and peacefulness, located a minute away from Wilmington town center and 5 minutes away from Whiteface Mt Olympic ski area!

This log home of 1400 sq. ft features beautiful real, round log exterior walls, cedar and pine ceilings, hardwood floors, and large log beams, with a huge 12'x24' ft exterior deck overlooking the Ausable River, and a master bedroom balcony over cedar logs, with direct views of Whiteface Mt and the Wilmingon Range. This new log home was lovingly built in 2013 by life-long Adirondack resident and owner and Johnathan Esper, with meticulous attention to log design born from the owner's fond memories of growing up in a log home. The log house is built almost over the Ausable River, set amid some towering white pines on the steep river bank, at the end of a 300ft driveway with the neighbors' houses set well away along the roadside frontage. The sounds of the West Branch of the Ausable River, or the wind through the pines from atop the cedar balcony, are the only thing one hears from the house, despite being located most conveniently only 30 seconds to the center of the small town of Wilmington and it's various shops. Exterior sofit lights cast spellbinding shadow patterns of the round log textures and cedar shake gables, making twilight a wonderful time to come home.

The first floor of the house follows an open floor plan concept with kitchen, dining, and living rooms, plus a full bath and laundry room and bedroom with queen bed. Enjoy the cozy gas fireplace with real flames, while looking out the window toward the Wilmington Range. Radiant in-floor heating throughout the house also provides warmth and coziness, and in the hotter summer months, the natural thermal properties of logs keep the house cool, along with french bi-fold doors opening onto the deck for fresh air. The kitchen is fully equipped for you to make lovely meals if you so wish, with brand new stainless-steel appliances. Upstairs is the master suite area including loft and bath. The bedroom featuring a walkout balcony accessed via french doors, and mountain views from the queen size bed. The upstairs bathroom is entirely of slate tile and red cedar, with a large jacuzzi hot-tub, glass shower, and dual flush European style toilet. There is a large loft area, which can enjoyed as a lounging area for the master suite, or desk working area, or kids sleeping area with a comfy new futon that can lay out flat for children.

This charming log chalet-style home is the perfect size for a week or weekend getaway to the Adirondack Mountains, and you'll feel you're in the Adirondacks whether at this home, or out enjoying the Adirondack region. The world class town of Lake Placid is just 15 minutes away, with fine dining and shopping, and it's the heart of the Adirondack High Peaks with the best access for hiking. Keene Valley, a hiker's destination, is also just 15 minutes away. And of course, Whiteface Mt ski area is just up the road 5 minutes away. The Ausable River is world famous for its fly fishing, and you can even enjoy your private fishing area on the bank in front of your vacation home. Wilmington is really located in a great area of the Adirondacks - it's the ski and mountain biking capital of the Adirondacks, and 15 minutes away from the best hiking in New York State.

Exterior of the house features a huge deck, with Adirondack cedar chairs, overlooking the Ausable River, A BBQ grill for your use, canoes/kayaks for guests use on nearby ponds (must sign special clause section in house rental agreement), and a firepit with plenty of Free Firewood to burn! (always keep your fire under control, not too big, and never leave unattended).

About Owner/Property Manager

I'm a full time Adirondack and Icelandic photographer, and an Adirondack native. In this charming Adirondack log home I helped build, I incorporated as many logs and Adirondack rustic styled elements as I could, recalling with fondness my family's log house I grew up in. Enjoy your time here in the Adirondacks!

Beautiful home with beautiful views! All the wood throughout gives you the true cabin experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing and peaceful week. The fireplace downstairs was great and I loved the jacuzzi tub in the bathroom. The home is close to lake placid and we drove into town easily. We took our dogs on nearby hikes and they loved it too. Overall, we had a great week and would definitely come back!

Perfect Family Adirondack Adventure

  • 5 of 5

Meticulously clean, beautiful log cabin fit our family of five perfectly. Great location for hiking, kayaking, touring the Olympic venues, and shopping/dining in Lake Placid. Cabin was perfect blend of rustic & luxury, Comfortably furnished, well stocked kitchen and gorgeous mountain views. Everything was just as depicted. Loved grilling our dinners and eating outside on the spacious deck, surrounded by mountains and sunshine with the peaceful rush of the Ausable River below, followed by s'mores over the campfire----absolute summer perfection!

Beautiful Cabin with a Fabulous View

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was rustic with a modern feel. The quality of the built was outstanding and was so comfortable. Very clean, had everything we needed, even down to the Snowmen decorations. It was super quiet but close to skiing, restaurants, the Animal Refuge and Lake Placid. Even the stairs down to the River had a Special touch. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone.

Charming log cabin in great location

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a relaxing few days in this beautiful rental. Clean, well-furnished, and conveniently located five minutes from the Mt Whiteface ski resort, I can highly recommend this place for those that want to play all day and then come home and kick back in a lovely setting. Cook up a big pot of chili in the fully equipped kitchen, open a nice bottle of red wine, and then hang out on the deck to enjoy the view of the stars and the sound of the rushing Ausable river which runs along the back of the property . The owner is very responsive and an accomplished photographer ,whose eye for detail is apparent in the decor of the home . Thanks again Johnathan, we had a great time!

Great ADK Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is stunning! The surrounding views are wondrous and the cabin is perfectly situated on the land to capture the best views of the mountains and the Ausable river rushing beneath. The cabin is comfortable and well appointed with all that you need. The decor is truly ADK with lodge furnishings. Our family enjoyed time together here and the location was close to Lake Placid and hiking, snow sports and shopping. We would definitely stay here again! Thank you Jonathan for sharing your special home with us!

Beautiful modern log cabin with all the modern amenities

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful weekend, celebrating Thanksgiving in Jonathan's beautiful home. The location is easy to find and the house is so comfortable and charming. The view from the upstairs bedroom as the sun comes up on the mountain range is truly stunning.

Thank you for sharing your home with us, I've always been a beach girl but after spending time there...your place and the Adirondacks are on my list of "happy places."

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to share of your experience at my home, and I'm glad you enjoyed your time in the Adirondacks while staying and refreshing at my house! I'm definitely a mountain and views type of person, and love the Adirondacks so much and that I'm actually building a larger log lodge also overlooking Whiteface in Lake Placid, due to be finished in June 2018. Happy New Year, and hope you can return to the Adirondacks again!
