Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

This home was so peaceful and beautiful. You are close to many beautiful hikes, our dog loved all the roaming. The home is quite spacious, with all the comforts (although a few extras like some coffee/teas, salt/ pepper etc would be nice) . The beds were comfy, views magnificent. The hot tub, sauna and fire pit are all extra pluses! We loved this place and would highly recommend it. Any questions you have are answered immediately.. thank you very much! Hopefully we will be back.

Very nice cabin with quiet seclusion and outstanding views

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our long October weekend stay in your cabin. Its comfort and seclusion with gorgeous Fall foliage were so enjoyable. The short drive to nearby Lake Placid allowed trips to town for some dining and supplies. Family members made several hikes in the area. I enjoyed fishing on the river, too. A spectacular rainbow early one morning over the valley in full Fall colors reminded us of God’s promises and creation. Thanks for letting us stay.

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! The longest run is the 2.1 mile 'Wilmington Trail' and total skiing/boarding stretches over 22 miles. Whiteface Mountain is truly fun for everyone!

We invite you to enjoy horseback riding, gondola rides, paddling, guided walks, hunting, rock climbing, white water rafting, mountain biking, boating, and a visit to Santa's workshop.
