Gorgeous property and well maintained chalet - spacious enough for my family of 5

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I booked our week long stay at the chalet, the owners of the property were warm and welcoming, even calling me immediately after I placed an inquiry to help me decide which of their properties would best fit our family. The backyard and firepit overlooking Whiteface Mountain were phenomenal. We found the open layout inside the chalet to be spacious and welcoming with all the kitchen tools you would ever need. My kids loved playing hide and go seek on the property. We found that the location was within 30 minutes to all the nearby attractions, including a nearby public beach, Wilmington Beach (which has a beach/playground/picnic area and boat rentals). We also visited Ausable Chasm, climbed Whiteface, rode the Cloudsplitter Gondola to the top of Little Whiteface, boated on Saranac Lake, went shopping and dining in Lake Placid, and on one gloomy day we took the kids to the North Pole/Santa's workshop. Such a memorable trip telling ghost stories around the firepit and roasting marshmellows at night. Thank you for a lovely stay! We won't forget it!

Quiet natural setting

  • 5 of 5

Esther mountain chalet is one of our favorite spots. The neighbors are a family of beavers, and I enjoy watching them swim through the meadow streams. There were tons of singing birds and even a turtle came by and dug a little hole for eggs. It is very relaxing here. Todd and Kims houses are always very clean and well prepared for us. Any time we have called with a question, the folks are always prompt and friendly. We will be back!

Best cabin in the Adirondacks

  • 5 of 5

The sauna and hot tub were delightful. Inside, the chalet was spacious and full of comfortable furniture including a giant bean bag chair. Todd (the owner) even called me the day of check-in to make sure I arrived at the cabin safely. Can't wait to visit again!

Superb house in a superb location

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the Esther Mountain Chalet for the first time this year, between May 18th and 22nd. We are returning customers and have stayed at a few of the other available houses by the owner and, like the other ones, this one is also fantastic.

First, it is a bit off the beaten path. No sound coming from the road, it is absolutely quiet at night. Frogs and birds is all you’ll hear. It is amazing.

The view is stunning from the backyard deck. Views of the whiteface mountain are amazing.

The little wood stove dry sauna outside is also extremely welcome and very original. It is definitely a plus for this rental property along with the hot tub on the deck.

Although the firepit could use some Adirondacks chairs like they have at the other propreties, it is well located, right beside the little pond with the beaver dam.

House itself is extremely well cleaned, well maintained, and beautiful inside out. It has a rustic feel to it, while all the amenities feel modern and renovated.

We come to the Adirondacks once/twice a year for hiking and this house is now one of our favorite!

The owners are really friendly and well reply to any questions quickly and accurately.

Once again, a superb house in a superb location.

I definitely recommend it!!

Location

Car: recommended

This stunning vacation home is situated in Wilmington, NY, in the heart of the 6 million acre Adirondack Park.

Wilmington is nestled in the valley of the West Branch of the AuSable River and is home of Whiteface Mountain, site of the 1980 Winter Olympics and where today's top athletes from around the world train and compete.

Whiteface summit, with its unparalleled view, is accessible by Whiteface Veteran's Memorial Highway, which originates in downtown Wilmington, a 3 minute drive from the home. A visit to the Adirondacks is not complete without a drive to the top! After all, how many other roads lead directly to the summit of a mountain, with gorgeous views spanning hundreds of miles of wild land reaching as far as Vermont and Canada? Nowhere else is the beauty and vastness of the Adirondack Park so evident and easily accessible.

Most of Wilmington is state forest preserve, offering rugged wilderness beauty with access to hiking and mountain biking trails in summer and downhill and cross country skiing, snow shoeing and snowmobile trails in winter. The West Branch of the AuSable River is internationally renown for trout fishing.

Just a 3 minute drive from the home is Whiteface Mountain ski resort. Boasting over 283 acres of skiable terrain, 86 trails and 11 lifts, Whiteface Mountain has the greatest vertical drop east of the Rockies and features diverse terrain for beginner skiers and snow boarders, expert glades and slides for the advanced and loads of trails for everyone in between!
