About the property

We welcome you to our Cozy Cabin in the Adirondacks, located in the pine forests of Jay, New York, in the Heart of the High Peaks. You will be close to Whiteface Mtn, Lake Placid, AuSable Chasm, fishing on the Ausable River, Lake Champlain and only 90 miles from Montreal. The Cabin has been recently totally remodeled, and we think you will enjoy the newly tiled bathrooms, renovated kitchen, and cozy living room area with high-speed WiFi, cable TV, a Bluetooth speaker and even a computer station with a printer if you don't bring your own.

The Cabin is in the neighborhood of Ausable Acres, a unique community where every house is on at least an acre of land, and we share some common amenities: Lake Eaton, a small lake with a nature trail around it, a play ground, tennis courts and a picnic pavilion. There is also a trail system for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, hiking or trail running – we have maps available. And for the fishermen, there are 2 private access points to the West Fork of the Ausable River.

We are also within 3 miles of Ausable Forks, a village which has a grocery store, convenience store, pharmacy, gas station, bar, restaurants (pizza at one), movie theater, liquor store, and bowling alley.

The Cabin features 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, living room, dining area, and a fully equipped kitchen. The Cabin is heated with a propane stove in the living room. We have high-speed WiFi, cable-TV and Netflix with a 55” flat screen television. We also have a computer and printer available for your use.

The Cabin features a large deck, which has a gas grill, table and benches, and 2 Adirondack chairs (in the summer season only).

-The entrance to the house is from the deck into an entryway with a ski-rack for your skies and poles, and a bench to change from your wet outside shoes and boots to shoes that can be worn indoors.

-The first floor bedroom features a queen bed, large closet, 2 dressers and a full bathroom with a bathtub.

-The living room has a comfortable overstuffed couch and loveseat along with the 55” flat-screen TV and DVD player.

-The dining area has a table and chairs for 6 people.

-The kitchen is fully equipped with a stove, microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator, toaster, blender, coffee maker, kettle and crock pot.

-The second floor bedroom has a king size bed, large closet, dresser, and a full bathroom with a shower.

-The second floor bedroom also has a futon, which converts to a bed for 2 more people.

-The basement has a washer and dryer available for you to use while you are here.

You will have full access to the Cabin, we ask that you respect our belongings stored in the basement and upstairs storage areas. If we are not available to meet you at check-in, we will give you the instructions on how to get in the Cabin, and we can be reached by telephone or email. All contact phone numbers will be in the information notebook.

Your own vehicle is highly recommended, as there is almost no public transportation. For winter stays, winter tires or a 4X4 is also highly recommended as the Adirondacks are prone to significant snowfalls and icy conditions.

The information booklet will have instructions for all devices, maps and brochures for local things to do, and a list of things to do when you check out.

The Cabin is located in Ausable Acres, a beautiful, peaceful residential community. We ask that you respect that, and obey the 10pm quiet time rule. Our neighbors are important to us, and we ask that you respect them.

Also, outdoor fires are only allowed in the fire pit, and keep the flames low please.

The propane stove in the fireplace can get very hot, please keep little ones away for their own safety.

Check-in time is 4pm and after.

Check-out time is 11am. If you need/want to change either time, please ask ahead of time and we will try to accommodate you.

About Cathy Taylor

We are a semi-retired couple who love to travel, and be outdoors. Living in the Adirondacks is a dream-come-true for us, and we hope you love it too. We are relatively new to being hosts, so we hope you give us a chance to show you our Cozy Cabin in the Adirondacks.

Cathy Taylor purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Cathy Taylor chose Jay

We have been day-tripping to the Adirondacks for years, either to ski, hike or go to events in Lake Placid. When the opportunity came to buy this cabin - we jumped at it, even tho is needed total renovation. We hope you like how it turned out, it's a cozy cabin - nothing fancy, just comfortable.

Perfect week!

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations couldn’t have been better for the price. Very comfortable, great wi-if, and nice touches like paper towels, hand soap, and napkins... stuff I always forget to bring when renting a house for a week.

There aren’t any views from the house, but nice trails within walking distance. Also, a great location to drive to the high peaks and Lake Placid.

I’m sure we will return again!

Very well named

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the Cozy Cabin with family members for a weekend of snowshoeing. This cottage is incredibly clean and very well equipped (2 Keurig machines, spices, salt and pepper, soap, shampoo, really all the comforts of home). Very conveniently situated near the High Peaks. Owner is very courteous, polite and responds to inquiries very rapidly. Will definitely rent again.

Beautiful and quiet.

I had a really great time staying at the Cozy Cabin. It was very clean, quiet, and just what I need for a relaxing weekend. We both would definitely stay here again. Neither one if us wanted to go home.
