Property description

This charming house is centrally located in the shadow of Whiteface Mountain in High Peaks of the Adirondacks near the East Branch of the Au Sable River in the Town of Wilmington.
The spacious house has a large lawn and is quietly secluded from the highway on a five acre lot. Yet, this house is only 1 mile from the center of town on the main route 86, 5 minutes from Whiteface Mountain and 15 minutes from Lake Placid.
We can sleep 12 in beds and have pullouts for larger groups up to 16 so please inquire via email for larger groups. The house has a main level consisting of a master bedroom with a queen-size bed and adjoining bath and shower. Two other bedrooms, one with a full size bed capable of sleeping 2 and a third bedroom with two twin bunk beds. The upper level beds sleep 6 in 3 bedrooms comfortably. The second bathroom is also located on the main floor.
There is also a large lower level. The lower level has 3 bedrooms that sleep 6 comfortably in beds, One Queen size bed, one with a double bed as well as one with a single bed with a pullout trundle. The lower family room has an additional 2 pullout couches sleeping 2 each. For family time there is a large screen HD TV and a pool table for entertainment. The additional pullouts would be beneficial to groups with children as it can accommodate 16 to 18 people. There is no bathroom on the lower level but just a few short steps away on main level.
The living room features a beautiful Adirondack view with a large sectional couch and two other couches (ones a pullout) along with a 60” high def TV with satellite and wifi for netflicks. The kitchen is well stocked to include everything you would need. All the necessary appliances and utensils including a dishwasher and coffeemaker, microwave, blender, to name a few. You just supply the meals.
A picnic table and grill are located on the deck and in the spacious secluded backyard. There are woods in the back with miles of both hiking and mountain biking, cross country ski trails. The local Lake Everest beach and rec area is about 1.5 miles away. The world famous Ausable trout river is a 2 minute ride. We have a small fire pit located in the back yard, with many local supplies of 'campwood' at a few dollars per bundle.
The home is a short 10 mile drive to the Olympic Village of Lake Placid. Golfing, Horse Show, mountain biking, hiking trails and other recreation can be found all around the area.
You will find plenty of information and maps of the area when you arrive at the home. The property is located directly on the bike route for the Ironman competition in July.
We have recently added a new billiard table in our lower level Family room. It also has a 44' high definition TV with satellite and DVD player. Please refer to pictures and I will send additional if requested. If you have any questions or concerns please email me before booking.

Close to all the activities one would want in the Adirondacks in any season, then return to a tranquil home.
