We offer a lot of value for reasonable rates at our cozy home, because we think people can enjoy the outside without losing modern amenities inside. You are about a 5 minute drive from Whiteface Mountain, walking distance (1 minute drive) to local *FREE* Whiteface Mountain Shuttle Stop. Take a short scenic drive to visit the many historic towns of the area, such as Lake Placid, Keene, and Saranac Lake, with their story-book streets, world-class restaurants and shops, and all the Olympic Sites. This recently fully updated camp has been our family's Adirondack home-away-from-home for four generations. Our grandfather grew up in the area, and wanted to share the beauty of Adirondacks with his grandchildren. In the same spirit that he shared this camp and the Adirondacks with all of us, we look forward to sharing it with you for your vacation. What ever you dream of doing on your Adirondacks adventure this winter, it is either here, or close to here!! Perfectly situated to be your 'home base' for year-round Adirondack fun, it is definitely the Winter place to be! If your stay is shorter than 7 days, your cost will include the required Essex County taxes of Sales Tax: 7.75%, and Occupancy Tax 3%, as well as a cleaning fee. Never Any Smoking Allowed -- Please respect that our entire house, including the back deck, is 100% No Smoking Area. Pets not Allowed. More

We traveled with kids and found everything we need. The house looks like someone lives in it and rents it out during peak seasons. It has everything you can imagine from one large and 3 small refrigerators to WiFi, washer, drier, and kitchen appliances. Sometimes...More

About the neighbourhood
Wilmington, NY is a sleepy town of about 1,000 people nestled in the Adirondack Mountains. There is a gas station and small supermarket around the corner from the house, and some local shops. It also happens to be the home of Whiteface Mountain, the largest ski mountain on the East Coast. The Village of Lake Placid, with main street shops and attractions, is about 20 minutes away.
Getting around
While there is a shuttle down the street that will take you to Whiteface and a small supermarket within walking distance, its advisable to travel by car to the location.
