Wilmington chalet description

Adirondack style log home - brand new built in 2013, and located on the Ausable River with mountain views of Whiteface! Come enjoy the Adirondacks based out of this perfect log home with rustic charm, views, and peacefulness, located a minute away from Wilmington town center and 5 minutes away from Whiteface Mt Olympic ski area!
The log home is 1400 sq. ft , complete with beautiful, real, round log exterior walls, cedar and pine ceilings, hardwood floors, and large log beams, with a huge 12'x24' ft exterior deck overlooking the Ausable River, and a master bedroom balcony over cedar logs, with direct views of Whiteface Mt and the Wilmingon Range. Just built in the fall of 2013, this brand new home was lovingly built by life-long Adirondack resident and owner and Johnathan Esper, with meticulous attention to log design born from the owner's fond memories of growing up in a log home. The log house is built almost over the Ausable River, set amid some towering white pines on the steep river bank, at the end of a 300ft driveway with the neighbors' houses set well away along the roadside frontage. The sounds of the West Branch of the Ausable River, or the wind through the pines from atop the cedar balcony, are the only thing one hears from the house, despite being located most conveniently only 30 seconds to the center of the small town of Wilmington and it's various shops. Exterior sofit lights cast spellbinding shadow patterns of the round log textures and cedar shake gables, making twilight a wonderful time to come home.
The first floor of the house follows an open floor plan concept with kitchen, dining, and living rooms, plus a full bath and laundry room and bedroom with queen bed. Enjoy the cozy gas fireplace with real flames, while looking out the window toward the Wilmington Range. Radiant in-floor heating throughout the house also provides warmth and coziness, and in the hotter summer months, the natural thermal properties of logs keep the house cool, along with french bi-fold doors opening onto the deck for fresh air. The kitchen is fully equipped for you to make lovely meals if you so wish, with brand new stainless-steel appliances. Upstairs is the master suite area including loft and bath. The bedroom featuring a walkout balcony accessed via french doors, and mountain views from the queen size bed. The upstairs bathroom is entirely of slate tile and red cedar, with a large jacuzzi hot-tub, glass shower, and dual flush European style toilet. There is a large loft area, which can enjoyed as a lounging area for the master suite, or desk working area, or kids sleeping area with a comfy new futon that can lay out flat for children.

This charming log chalet-style home is the perfect size for a week or weekend getaway to the Adirondack Mountains, and you'll feel you're in the Adirondacks whether at this home, or out enjoying the Adirondack region. The world class town of Lake Placid is just 15 minutes away, with fine dining and shopping, and it's the heart of the Adirondack High Peaks with the best access for hiking. Keene Valley, a hiker's destination, is also just 15 minutes away. And of course, Whiteface Mt ski area is just up the road 5 minutes away. The Ausable River is world famous for its fly fishing, and you can even enjoy your private fishing area on the bank in front of your vacation home. Wilmington is really located in a great area of the Adirondacks - it's the ski and mountain biking capital of the Adirondacks, and 15 minutes away from the best hiking in New York State.

Exterior of the house features a huge deck, with Adirondack cedar chairs, overlooking the Ausable River, A BBQ grill for your use, canoes/kayaks for guests use on nearby ponds (must sign special clause section in house rental agreement), and a firepit with plenty of Free Firewood to burn! (always keep your fire under control, not too big, and never leave unattended).

                  About: I'm a full time Adirondack and Icelandic photographer, and an Adirondack native. In this charming Adirondack log home I helped build, I incorporated as many logs and Adirondack rustic styled elements as I could, recalling with fondness my family's log house I grew up in. Enjoy your time here in the Adirondacks!

                  Brand New Log Home. Wood and slate construction throughout. Mountain views. World Class Fishing River Access with direct steps from home to River's Edge Fire pit with Free Firewood!
