Overview

About the property

Sleeps 8, 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom with deck, BBQ, jacuzzi tub, ample dining space

This magical retreat with exceptional "cabin in the woods" interiors is nestled on 2.5 acres. It is an architectural saltbox in the heart of the Adirondacks only 7 miles from Whiteface Mountain and 15 miles from Lake Placid. Within walking distance are hiking and cross country ski trails. It is truly a retreat for the body and soul!

Surrounded by your own private forest, this warmly furnished home, with Adirondack touches throughout, has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a great living area, ample dining table space for 8, and large island kitchen will make your family and friends feel welcome. Flick on the gas fireplace and enjoy your own music mixes through the built-in surround sound system. Take the chill off after a day of activities in the steam shower or the jacuzzi for two. The chef's kitchen has all the tools needed to make any meal just like home. When the weather is right, enjoy the fire pit area or just sit out on the deck.

This home has two queen size beds, two daybeds with trundles and a pull out sofa. There are multiple TVs with satellite and DVD players, Wi-Fi, fully equipped kitchen including convection oven and wine cooler, BBQ grill, iron and board, linens, towels and washer/dryer.

Located one mile from the house is Lake Eaton, where you can canoe or hike around the lake, perfect for children. The community of Au Sable Acres has a tennis court and slightly more ambitious trails; a trail map is in the kitchen. The house is minutes from Au Sable Forks where there is a movie theater, great pizza place, wine store and supermarket. In Wilmington, about a 10 minute car ride, there is a river front beach with volleyball court and picnic area. You can also enjoy the summer concert series in the heart of Jay just down the road from the house. A bit further is the wonder of Lake Placid, about a 20 minute car ride, where you can browse the outlet stores and artisan shops and enjoy lake view delights and dining on Main Street. For a nice day trip, downtown Montreal is about a two hour car ride away.

Other nearby activities in the winter are world class skiing at Whiteface Mountain, bobsled and tubing at the Mt. Van Hoevenberg Olympic Center, or ice skating and dog sleigh riding in Lake Placid. In the summer, hiking trails abound as well as fishing holes, golf courses, and boating in Lake Placid, Saranac Lake, or Lake Champlain.

10 percent discount on 4 nights or more all other times except Christmas, New Years and Iron man week, MLK, Presidents, Memorial, and Columbus Weekends, months of July and August.

15 percent discount on 6 nights or more all other times except all other holiday weekends as stated.

What makes this house unique

I changed the design of this house from the original plans and chose the placement on the property. With the driveway somewhat winding and completely surrounded by leaves three quarters of the year, one is assured of total privacy and as much sun streaming into the house as possible. Kitchen is laid out with a chef's mentality and with the dining room table near the kitchen island, dinner parties are a breeze. Finally, with a sound system piping in music through the lower level of the house, entertaining has never been so fun!

Beautiful Spacious Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to the Lake Placid area in a group of 6 and stayed in this home. We were blown away by the beauty of the home and the surrounding area. The home was stocked with everything we needed including towels and linens. The owner, Carlos, was very responsive to all of our requests and made the process very simple.

Thank you for letting us stay in your home for a very enjoyable weekend.

Great Ski Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Jay cabin. It was bright, roomy and cheery. The pictures did not truly show the beauty of the cabin. It is well stocked with movies and games to keep the kids busy and super close to Whiteface mountain. We highly recommend this cabin to anyone wishing to get away but to have all the comforts of home.

Beautiful house close to skiing!

  • 5 of 5

This house was so nice! All the comforts of home. Cozy beds, great kitchen, big porch, fireplace and more. Had many games to play and a steam shower. Great after a long day of skiing. Carlos was very responsive and easy to work with. It was an easy drive to Whiteface. Our stay was wonderful and we will definitely book again.

Perfect cottage for a weekend ski getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was wonderful! About 15-20 minutes from Whiteface mountain. In the cottage we found everything we needed to make ourselves at home: utensils, cookware, etc. Perfectly furnished, nice spacious rooms. We had a great time time and will certainly rent it again! Thank you Carlos for all the little labels that helped find things easily;-) we thought a ping-pong table in the basement would certainly be a great future addition!

A la prochaine!
