Wilmington house description
Enjoy the best view in town of Whiteface Mountain while relaxing in an Adirondack chair on the front porch of Solitude Lodge! Nothing else in your sight except an historic barn, pine trees, birch tress, and the cliffs of Quaker Mountain. We've worked hard to think of everything we could do to help you leave your worries at home. You will not need to think about bringing linens or towels, buying wood for the fire place or fire pit, removing your own trash, or cleaning. We are happy to take care of all of that for you at no extra charge.
Solitude Lodge is a newly, completely renovated home situated on 29 beautiful Adirondack Park acres. The home has 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths and sleeps 8 very comfortably. The master bedroom has it's own bathroom and a king size bed. Bedroom #2 has a queen bed. It shares a hallway bath with bedroom #3 which has a double bed and two twin beds. The half bath and laundry room are on the main floor off of the kitchen.The kitchen is completely new with granite tile counter tops, and all new appliances, including a dishwasher. It is loaded with all the pots, pans, dishes and utensils you will need to prepare and enjoy meals together. The dining room has a large Adirondack rustic style birch and antler table that seats at least 8. Glass doors lead onto the deep front porch where you will find Adirondack chairs, a gas grill, and picturesque views in every direction! The spacious living room has wide plank pine floors, hand hewn beams, a stone fireplace, reading area, chess table, foosball table, rustic bar and dart board, and a 40' flat screen TV with DVD player. A second TV and DVD player for gaming and movies is in bedroom #3.
Although we worked hard to make Solitude Lodge so beautiful, comfortable, and relaxing that you might not want to go outside... it will be worth the effort if you do! On the property you can gather around the stone fire pit at night. During the day you can hike, challenge your friends to a game of horse shoes, or explore the 29 acres. Within a few miles you will be able to kayak, swim, fish, and play volleyball at the town beach at Lake Everest. You can hike, snow shoe, cross country ski, and mountain bike on a new set of trails just created 1 mile from the house. You can also ski, or snow shoe at Whiteface Mountain just three minutes away! The activities available within 15 to 30 minutes away are endless. Of course there's The Village of Lake Placid, all The Olympic Venues, horse shows, Ausable Chasm, The Wilderness Center, and many of the 49 high peaks just to name a few.
When you are done exploring you can come home to Solitude! Put your feet up and enjoy each other. We have been lucky enough to create many cherished memories with family and friends in this area. Our goal when renovating Solitude Lodge was to build a home that you could create your own memories in!
Some comments from our guest book...
- 'We had such a wonderful time with our family. Half of us went skiing, half went to Lake Placid. The slopes are just minutes away. This is the nicest house we ever stayed in, and we've been coming to this area since the '80ies. Certainly we will be coming again!'
- 'This is an awesome place, how wonderful! Great views, lovely house, thank you!'

Summer in the Adirondacks
Summer in the Adirondacks
One of the best surprises! We rented this property for a family vacation. We were stunned by the well kept premises and the comfort of the house. The grounds are beautiful and the vicinity is just gorgeous, just what we were looking for. A great quiet beautiful location! The house and amenities were perfect. Lots of room for hanging out and enjoying this home. A great big kitchen for cooking our family meals, and close enough to all area attractions. We woke up each day and planned day hikes in the area. It was a dreqam! So from all us us, thanks so much for the opportunity to stay in your wonderful home. My sife, and 3 children 22,20,18...We really had quality time together in this hectic world and it really solidified our family relationships. The pictures of this property do not do it justice!!!

Owner response: I am so glad you enjoyed your stay! My boys are growing up and going off to college. The time we can get together is so precious! That was our main consideration when renovating the home. I love hearing that other families were able to make lifelong memories together! Thank you for taking the time to let me know! Take care, Jeannine
This place surpassed everyone's expectations. You can tell the property has been invested in, as it is modern, clean, and inviting. Big changing room right as you come in for all your wet boots and ski hardware. Modern spacious kitchen with a large island, and very nice farm table for dining. The front deck has Adirondack lounge chairs with clear views of Whiteface, which is literally minutes from the property. The living room is large and has an integrated sound system which was very easy to get going. Upstairs rooms are clean and the bedrooms were spacious. Everyone in the group agreed that there is a very perceptible difference between vacation rentals they've stayed at in the past and the Solitude Lodge. This lodge is just a notch or two above. If you're staying for a weekend you should also note that other places usually charge a cleaning fee which can be as high as 20% of your lodging cost. Solitute Lodge on the other hand does not, and that in itself makes this a great deal. One caveat is that checkout times are FIRM.

I was participating in Ironman Lake Placid and I wanted to find a place that would be away from the activity generated from all the excitement of Ironman. The Solitude Lodge was absolutely perfect. The home was beautiful, clean and had all the amenities that I would want in a home. I literally felt like I was coming home every time I walked in. It had a beautiful view of Whiteface Mountain and was minutes away by car. The area is stunning and I would come back in a heartbeat.

Owner response: Thank you Mari! I cant imagine training for and doing an Iron Man competition. Im so happy to hear you felt relaxed and at home during your stay. That was our goal with every choice we made during the renovation. Thank you again for choosing to stay at Solitude Lodge! Please let me know if I can help you with anything in the future!
My family and friends spent a weekend at Solitude Lodge and it was a great experience! The chalet is very well equipped, it had everything we needed. The entire house was clean, new, and very well kept. The kitchen was wonderful with everything one could possibly need to cook anything we wanted. The linens were so nice, they were better then a 4 star hotel we had been to the week before, we slept so well! The chalet is cute, charming, and so close to Whiteface. Definitely recommend to anyone and planning on taking a summer vacation here in the future. Thank you Jeanine for everything!

Owner response: Thank you Marta! I loved hearing that you had a great weekend! If you get to come back to the area this summer think about bringing mountain bikes. A new set of trails are just down the road. The town of Wilmington also has a very family friendly town beach a few minutes away. Enjoy the rest of your winter! Thanks again for staying at Solitude Lodge!
A Completely Charming Home
A Completely Charming Home
We stayed at Solitude for two nights. It could not have been more convenient to the slopes and the surrounding area. The house was perfect! It was well appointed, updated and cozy. We loved all of the Adirondack charm. The home was well stocked with everything you would need in the kitchen and overall. Jeannine could not have been nicer or more helpful as far as arrangements and recommendations. We had such a nice time with friends in the house, and we found ourselves discussing our return it was so memorable. I highly recommend staying at Solitude.

About the owner: We are a family of 4 with 2 teenage boys. Spending time together means everything to us! We spent years going north to ski at Whiteface Mountain with Grandma and Grandpa. The boys started skiing at The Kids Club at Whiteface when they were 4 years old. Now they are both ski instructors and one is in college. As they say... 'don't blink'. Over time we grew to enjoy sharing all of the seasons and activities this area has to offer with our family and friends. Buying and renovating this home was a dream come true. A real labor of love! Every choice we made was based on preserving the past and creating a future full of new traditions and mental snapshots! We would love to be a part of helping you create memories of your own!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
When you sit on the front porch and have your morning coffee looking at the slopes of Whiteface, or your apres ski beverage looking at the cliffs of Quaker Mountain you will understand how we came up with the name Solitude
