Newly Constructed - An Owaissa Club Townhome makes a perfect four season Adirondack rental home. The views of Whiteface Mountain and the West Branch of the AuSable River are breathtaking. Whiteface Mountain was rated #1 in the Northeast by Ski Mountain and has more vertical skiing than Colorado’s well-known Vail Mountain Resort! Known as the only ski and beach community in the Adirondacks, the Owaissa Club offers guests four-season recreation. Enjoy spring fishing on the famous West Branch of the Ausable River. In summer, you’re just steps from the beach at the Lake Everest Day Use Area - perfect for fishing, hiking, boating, and biking. Come winter and the skiing at Whiteface Mountain cannot be topped. Fall hiking is outstanding with easy access to the High Peaks, and for winter fun, there are no townhomes closer to Whiteface Mountain. Entertainment is within close proximity as well, area shopping and restaurants - Downtown Lake Placid is just minutes from your townhome.

Why LeeAnne Milnarik chose Wilmington
The property consists of a newly built Adirondack style town home that includes the same amenities that a hotel provides yet offers our guests the cozy mountain lodge feel. Living space is on the second floor, while bedrooms are on the first for easy drop off of skiis and equipment!

Being the closest town home vacation rentals to Whiteface Mountain - the Owaissa Club truly caters to market demand.

Did the job
The property had everything needed to be comfortable. Location is great for White face but I would have preferred it to not be next to main road. Definitely more of a winter location as no outside amenities were present. Would have been nice to have fire pit and furniture for the balcony.
Great location, beautiful home.
There were 9 of us, between 2 families. We were here for 5 days to kayak, hike, and hang out.
Plenty of room for everyone
Super close to the beach/boat launch
Close to Wilmington restaurants
15 minutes to Lake Placid
2 kayaks provided
Had to transport kayaks to beach. Not super far, but farther than you want to carry kayaks.
No mattress pads on the beds
Had to wash all dishes and glasses before use. They were dirty.
No patio furniture on the balcony
Balcony railing is unsafe
It should be noted that one of the bedrooms on the lowest level is a walk-through. It was fine for us because tow of the kids slept there. If it was an adult couple sleeping there, it could be awkward.
We would definitely stay again. The place was clean and beautiful, the location is so convenient, and the river is so peaceful.
We loved staying here! It was in a great location!
This condo was perfect for our New Year's vacation. We had four adult couples and the space was great. The mudroom was perfect for all our snow gear when we came back after a long day. The family room/dining room and kitchen was a large area to hang out and relax all together! The booking process was very easy and the office answered any questions I had. Don, the property manager, was fantastic. He was always available when we had question before and during the trip. We used the grocery delivery service, which was fantastic, so that we did not have to pack groceries. I would absolutely recommend this rental to anyone looking to visit the Whiteface/Lake Placid.
Peaceful and Relaxing.
My family has been skiing over 25 years, with our kids in tow. This a perfect location for anyone who loves to ski and relax, with the family or your spouse. The condo is spacious and soft. The dining area is perfect for quick dinner or entertaining after a day on the slopes, it is easy in and out. It is 5 minutes from Whiteface, and 20 min from Lake Placid. The The sleeping accomodations are comfy and inviting. I have been an instructor well over 25 years, believe me this is the choice of skiers.
Not what was expected
The one good: Don is an excellent property mgr. and was very attentive and interested in us enjoying our vacation.
There were many problems with a relatively new property that made our stay less than enjoyable. Examples: toilet seat broken; musty smell throughout (worse in basement - took three cans of spray to be habitable); only 2 knives in kitchen; glasses, pans and plates were dirty and had to be washed before could be used; bed in basement is too high (had to climb into it and almost fell off trying to get on); stained carpet; towels smell very musty and had ground in dirt - washed all towels, but once they were put in the dryer, they smelled again; bean bag stools in basement smell musty, need to be thrown out; took four dryer cycles to dry clothes/towels
Thank you for your feedback on your stay at the Owaissa Club. I sincerely apologize that your experience was not more favorable. When I received your review, I immediately went to the Owaissa Club and researched all of your concerns.
Although I did not smell the musty odor that you referred to, I did remove the bean bag stools from the bottom floor as a precautionary measure.
I checked both toilet seats and did not find one broken. Could you tell me which seat it was?
The townhouse had already been cleaned since your stay, so all of the dishware was clean upon my inspection. This is not to say, if for some reason the previous renters put items away dirty, the cleaner may have overlooked this. If there are not dishes in the sink or dishwasher, she may not have checked to make sure everything that was in the cabinets were clean.
This is now on her check list.
I did not find a lack of knives in the townhouse. There were 11 table knives in the drawer and a set of cutting knives on the counter.
The towels are heavy and it does take time for them to dry in the stackable dryer. As a result of you bringing this to our attention, we are purchasing towels of the same high quality, but not as heavy, so the dry time is more reasonable.
I personally did not smell anything unusual on the towels, but that is not to say you didn't, as smell is a very individual sense.
We are committed to all of guests having an exceptional experience. Your feedback has been very valuable as it directs us as to where we need to improve to accomplish our goal.
It was very nice that the drive was only 6 mins to the ski resort and about 25 minute drive to Lake Placid. The condo was very relaxing after a long day of skiing at Whiteface with a fire place, board games or cards available to play and very comfortable beds.
Owaissa Club town home, Unit 2 is located on Route 86 and just 2 min down the road from the entrance to Whiteface Mountain. The townhome was constructed in 2011 and offers guests easy access to the mountain and an easy drive to Lake Placid's downtown. One road (rte 86) leads you straight into Lake Placid.
