About the property

Chalet, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Nestled on the wooded hillside of Juniper Hill in Wilmington, your ultimate nature experience awaits, be it skiing, fishing, hiking, biking, kayaking or roasting smores over a camp fire.

Just minutes from Whiteface Mountain with the largest vertical drop in the northeast. Get to the summit on The 'Cloudsplitter Gondola' year round, or, take the breathtaking 8 mile drive up the Memorial Highway..... it really will take your breath away! On the way you can stop to visit with Santa & his reindeer at The North Pole, Home of Santa's Workshop.

Within a mile is the west branch of the AuSable River and fabulous trout fishing, kayaking & canoeing. Miles of hiking, biking, and cross country ski trails are all right at hand. Take a plunge off the rocks at the Flume, or pack a picnic lunch and hike back to a secluded swimming area. Lake Placid and the entire Olympic complex are just 10 minutes away through the beautiful Wilmington Notch.

Little Peak will sleep four to six with a doublefull bed in the master bedroom, comfy loft accessed via a spiral staircase with another full bed, and a queen size sleeper sofa in the main living room. Little Peak Chalet also sports a dining room for six, full bath, completely equipped kitchen, deck peeking through the pines to Whiteface Mountain, and a gas fired woodstove to take the chill off of the crisp mountain air at night. Relax on your deck or roast hotdogs over your roaring bonfire.

Whether it's a trek in the High Peaks or just a weekend to kick back and enjoy the view, you'll find Little Peak Chalet convenient, comfortable, affordable and the perfect location for your stay in the Wilmington/Whiteface/Lake Placid region.

Beautiful area, adorable cabin.

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at the little peak Chalet. The beds are comfortable, the bathroom is very modern and clean, and the living space and loft really make this home the best bang for your buck! Everything was perfect, and I'd love to give our experience 5 stars, but I felt like it could have been a little cleaner when we arrived. The floors had not been swept, there was hair in the shower drain, dead bugs on the occasional countertop and the pullout couch was stained and had dirt all over it. But the beautiful scenery more than made up for these minor details. If recommend this home to anyone looking to stay in Wilmington.

Owner's Response: Hi, I'm glad you liked the Chalet and had a wonderful time. I'm sorry about the cleaning our normally house manger was unavailable that day to clean and we used someone different I will make sure to have the Chalet checked over beforehand if we ever are in that situation again. We appreciate your honest review. Thank you, Tammy and Jeff

Cozy, charming and perfect for a great ski weekend.

  • 5 of 5

This chalet had everything we needed for our weekend on the mountain. The kitchen has everything you could need to prepare a perfect aprés ski meal and the beds were comfy. We definitely hope that the chalet is available for whenever we plan out next extended stay at Whiteface.

A True Get-Away!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 wanted to get away for the Thanksgiving weekend and Little Peak Chalet was absolutely perfect! The Chalet is tucked away up in the mountain just across from Whiteface, and is part of a little mountain neighborhood. My kids immediately commented on how quiet it was 'away from it all.' The chalet itself was clean and well appointed for our needs. It has a stove, refrigerator, microwave, shower and all of the dishes, pots, pans, and linens that anyone would need. Our daughters slept in the loft, my wife in the back bed, and I brought an air mattress for myself knowing that I don't do well on couch mattresses and there was no way we would both fit into a double bed (I'm 6'4) and it worked out really well. The drive for the Gondola ride at Whiteface was about 5 minutes away...and Main St. Lake Placid is about 25 mins away. Little Peak was clean, and centrally located to everything we wanted to do for our quick trip! The front deck was great to sit on and enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning and enjoy the view of Whiteface. We take multiple trips per year and our kids said that this was their favorite vacation of all time. We are already planning another trip up during a different season to take advantage of all of the fun Lake Placid and Wilmington have to offer.
