Upper Jay cottage description

The Cottage is a year-around modern rustic domicile situated on 15 acres in the High Peaks Area. It is surrounded by a stunning wilderness, plus it has gorgeous unobstructed views of the distant Adirondack mountain range. It is close to the AuSable River in the High Peaks region, the village of Upper Jay, Whiteface Mountain, Keene and Keene Valley (http://www.roostercombinn.com/activities/) and Lake Placid. Trailheads for Sentinel Range (http://www.cnyhiking.com/SentinelRangeWilderness.htm), Giant Mountain (http://www.adirondack.net/business/giant-mountain-11079/) and Jay Mountain wilderness area (http://www.cnyhiking.com/JayMountainWilderness.htm) are nearby.

If you love the notion of getting away from 'it all' the Cottage, built in 2003, will provide an escape in an elegant cozy and comfortable environment. The living room features a beautiful fireplace, arts and craft decor mixed with Adirondack touches. The cottage is fully furnished with washer/dryer and most other amenities. The cottage has hardwood and tile floors, wood-panelled walls, high end kitchen with full size appliances (electric stove, refrigerator, dishwasher), microwave, coffee maker, toaster. Sit awhile on the large porch and enjoy peaceful moments as it is a great place to enjoy your morning coffee or unwind after a day of activities.

The AuSable River is only a short walk from the cottage. Vermont and Montreal are easy day trips. The Essex ferry to Vermont is less than 45 minutes away. And it is about a two hour drive from the cottage to downtown Montreal. Lake Placid is about a 20 minute drive from the cottage and Whiteface Mountain is about a 6 minute drive. (For more information about Whiteface see http://www.whiteface.com/mountain; for Lake Placid see (http://www.lakeplacid.com/do.) Being close to the many area attractions while still being able to offers a unique get away experience makes it a perfect vacation spot.

We will be providing Internet services in the near future. We DO provide phone services and Verizon cell phones work well in this area along with the high end TracFon. We provide a few games and a small variety of books and a few magazines. This is intentional as this is a place to share your time with one another and enjoy local attractions; hike (http://www.adirondack.net/tour/hike/highpeaks.cfm), fly-fish http://flyanglersonline.com/features/greatrivers/ausableny/), ski, cross-country ski, or just enjoy nature from the deck .

This is strictly a no smoke and no pet facility.

The village of Upper Jay (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jay,_New_York) is located in the middle of the High Peaks region. There is a library and post office and places to eat near-by. The 'Recovery Lounge' and the former local church hosts concerts and plays during the summer.
