Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday chalet in Jay - The Whispering Pines Chalet

4 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Chalet, Accommodates Up To 12 People.

We welcome you to our Adirondack Chalet, set in the towering pines of Jay, New York, in the Heart of the High Peaks. Relax in cozy comfort and unwind by the wood burning fireplace after a full day of exploring the High Peaks trails or skiing at Whiteface Mountain. Fish in the famous Ausable River for the best trout and grill it to perfection on your own deck. Enter the deck from the upstairs open floor living space. Surrounded by tall pines and birch, nature abounds.This 4 bedroom 2 bath chalet is set on 3 private very wooded acres, and sleeps a maximum of 12 people.Fully equipped kitchen and all linens, towels, and blankets included. Enter on the first floor to a comfortable den with a reading nook by the picture window. There is a brand new futon that sleeps two comfortably. Down the hall are 2 bedrooms.

The 1st has a full size bed that sleeps 2. The 2nd is what we call the bunk room. It has 2 sets of bunk beds and sleeps 4 all together. A bathroom with full shower and bathtub is on the 1st floor as well. Wander upstairs to the heart of the house. The vaulted wood ceilings and skylights create a gathering space for all. This open space contains the kitchen equipped with all the essentials and more, the dining area with a long oak table to accommodate everyone, and the living area with a crackling wood burning fire, flat screen TV for viewing DVD's- large collection of DVD's to choose from. Also on this floor is the master bedroom with a king size bed and the 'trundle bedroom', which has a you guessed it, a trundle bed that pulls out to 2 twin beds.

The 2nd bathroom is also on this floor, with full bathtub and shower. Our chalet is not the ordinary rental home, it is more personal and charming with many oil paintings and artwork, personal treasures, antiques, and retro chic. Rentals are available all year round by the week or a minimum of 3 days. We encourage weekly rentals for July and August. So bring your hiking boots, skis or canoes and get out and enjoy the beauty of the Adirondack Park. And don’t forget to bring the dog, they like to reconnect with nature too. We are dog friendly, no extra fees.

Great spot, very private, lots of beds, rustic cottage feel.

  • 4 of 5

This place was perfect for us. Tons of bed options great if there's lots of single people not looking to share a bed.. Very secluded spot with nice wildlife.

No neighbours close. Rustic cottage feel, not fancy but clean and cozy.

Nice balcony stretches across the house. Very reasonably priced for what ur getting in my opinion. Reasonably close to Whiteface and Lake placid.

The home owner Teri is great to work with she responds quickly and is more then helpful with supplying info on anything u may want to do in the area..

I would defiantly stay here again.. Thx enjoy

Out dated but is as advertised.

  • 3 of 5

The property is nice but everything in the house is very outdated. The choice of artwork and decor is very odd but to each their own. The kitchen was sufficient to cook most meals without having to purchase or bring any other items. This was used for a guy's hiking trip, but I wouldn't bring my family to stay at this house. It's about 35-45 minutes from ADK Loj trailhead. So it was a little bit of a drive but the surrounding area is gorgeous so we didn't mind. Overall it was very easy to work with Terri and she refunded our deposit within a day or two. I would recommend this house again but not for a family trip.

2nd time Staying Here

  • 5 of 5

This is the 2nd time my group has stayed at this secluded mountain chalet. We love the large wood burning fireplace, and enough space for 11-12 people plus 2 dogs. Home has large driveway with plenty of space for multiple cars. Home provides generous size rooms and large dinner table where everyone can eat together. Truly has a very homey feeling. We highly recommend.

Amazing chalet with all the amenities needed

  • 5 of 5

Terri's chalet is really, really wonderful. One can see the hardwork and passion put into build this home. The bedrooms are spacious, the linens are comfortable and the space is huge. We were there during the coldest part of the year - but the heating was great. Terri is really great at getting back to you. You can be guaranteed to have a reply within 1 hour.

The kitchen and living room space are really cool with great DVD / book collection.

We loved our stay here and would highly recommend it. All the accessories, utilities and things needed were there.

A Wonderful Cabin In The Woods

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay at Whispering Pines was as good as our first! The cabin was clean and warm when we arrived. There was plenty of firewood and the fireplace did not disappoint. The kids loved the bunk beds downstairs. It was really nice to see the photos of Darla on the wall along with other dogs who have visited! While we didn't make the trek down to the river this time, Darla certainly remembered the way.

Our adventure took us to nearby North Pole for a visit with Santa. It was a really great time and the snowfall added just the right touch to a magical weekend! We look forward to coming back soon.

The Whispering Pines Chalet is located in the Ausable Acres area of the Hamlet of Jay. Surrounded by towering forests and mountain peaks, the famous Ausable River winds it way through the forests and valleys. Hiking trails abound, turning into cross-country ski and snowshoe trails in winter. Not to miss in Jay is the famous swimming hole right in town, by the covered bridge. Slip and slide down the rocks into the refreshing cold water of the Ausable River. Its a great time for the whole family.

We are also conveniently located only 15-20 minutes away from the Ausable Chasm, a great day trip. Whiteface Mountain, the olympic mountain is also only 15 minutes away for the highest vertical drop in the eastern US. The High Peaks area of the Adirondack is a sports enthusiasts paradise for all seasons.
