-- First floor washer/dryer, 
-- Free Wireless Internet,

We hope to offer small groups and families the chance to find the same enjoyment that we have received from visiting the Adirondacks for generations. 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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1960

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Wilmington:
We have so many wonderful memories of time spent here with our family. It is a playground for all ages in all year round. And our location made for a quick trip to whatever was the day’s preferred activity. In any season there is hiking to be found for all ages and levels of expertise from the trails around Lake Placid, to the challenge of the 46 High Peaks. In summer our parents would make a picnic lunch and we would all go spend the day at Mirror Lake Beach swimming and sunning and playing in the sand or some catch-and-release fishing. We would sometimes finish up with a walk through town for ice-cream or a nice dinner at one of the wonderful restaurants. In the Winter we would wake up in the dark to pack everyone in the car so we could be the first on the slopes at Whiteface. Or if we wanted to sleep in there were trips to Lake Placid for a trip across Mirror Lake on a dog sled, or the thrill of flying down the toboggan slide and out over the frozen water. Always followed by hot chocolate and cozy chats at home with the people you love.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We hope to offer small groups and families the chance to find the same enjoyment that we have received from visiting the Adirondacks for generations. The house has an open-plan area for dining and communing, but private areas as well for rest and relaxation apart from the group. 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.
