Wilmington cabin description

The AUSABLE MOOSE is a true Adirondack camp, owned by the same family (five generations) for fifty years. It is lovingly decorated with Adirondack and family memorabilia. This has been our escape from the hustle and bustle of the modern world. Over the years, we have hiked and biked, trout fished, mountain climbed, canoed, kayaked, antiqued, visited Lake Placid events, and best of all, sometimes just kicked back and enjoyed our tranquil property.

And now, for the first time, we are OFFERING OUR HOME AS A SEASONAL RENTAL. The Ausable Moose was built in 1965 as a fishing camp and then extensively renovated and added onto in 2001 to be used as our summer home. LOCATED ON SEVEN ACRE CLEARING IN THE MIDST OF 135 PRIVATELY OWNED ACRES, the camp offers privacy and seclusion, yet is only minutes away from Whiteface (the Olympic mountain) and other attractions that Wilmington has to offer.

In Wilmington, you can 'walk with the wolves' at the Adirondack Wildlife Refuge, or visit Santa's summer home at the North Pole, or bike the many new mountain trails on the mountain.

A scenic 15 minute drive will take you to famous Lake Placid, home of the '32 and '80 Olympics. One of the Ironman qualifying races takes place here at the end of July.

The camp has a well-equipped kitchen (remember we've been coming here for fifty years) with stove, oven, microwave, coffee maker and grinder, food processors, utensils and new dishes and glasses.

The Great Room features a large stone fireplace, a flat screen TV, and pull out sleeper couch, and room for dining in front of the fireplace at chilly times.

Off the Great Room there is a large Deck with more dining area, Adirondack chairs, and access to the Grilling Area with two grills: a gas grill (we supply the gas) and a charcoal/smoker grill for that juicy steak you just bought from the Little Supper Market in town.

The Camp has Internet, Satellite TV, and free WiFi. Cell phone coverage is excellent.

THE 20 X 24 FOOT SCREENED IN PORCH IS EVERYBODY'S FAVORITE ROOM. The porch features a dining area which seats 8 to 10. There is a comfortable seating area which features rockers, a futon for those who would prefer to sleep out on the porch, an exercise bike, and a large chess set. And then there's everybody's favorite spot, the built in bar with seats for 8 plus standees. It comes furnished with all necessary glassware, a mini-frig and is the place to plan tomorrow's activities or re-hash today's. Many world problems have been solved in this place.

The master bedroom offers a queen sized bed with a new mattress. The is a TV set up in there also, along with plenty of drawer and shelf space.

The second bedroom has a double bed (also with a new mattress) and a bunk bed (with a privacy curtain). There is also plenty of drawer space.

The spacious bathroom has a walk-in shower and the washer/dryer unit. Our deep drilled well provides cool water of a high quality.

We also have over 20 board games and throughout the camp you will find an EXTENSIVE ADIRONDACK AND FISHING LIBRARY, as well as a selection of fiction and non-fiction books. For outside fun, we have boccie, horseshoes, badminton, smash-ball, and plenty of room to practice soccer or toss a football.

Throughout and behind the wildflower meadow, there are plenty of trails to wander and enjoy the scene. And for your evening entertainment, there is the fire-pit for you and your family to gather round, sing songs, toast marshmallows (remember, we supply the wood), or just to watch the Milky Way and shooting stars. By the way, this is a firefly haven.

The camp grounds are well suited if some in your group want to tent out.

Whatever you do, indoors or out, a day JUST HANGING AT THE AUSABLE MOOSE will give you a chance to experience ADIRONDACK LIVING at its finest. Whether you come for a weekend or a week, you will see why we love our piece of the Adirondacks, and trust, that like us, you'll want to come back over and over again, just like we did.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1964

              About the owner: We are retired educators who used to come to this camp as a get-away during our working years. When we retired, we extensively remodeled and added to the camp to make it our summer home. We have enjoyed many family reunions and gatherings of friends with the Ausable Moose as the core of our wonderful experiences.

              Why the Owner Chose Wilmington:
              My Dad and I were ardent trout fishermen. When, back in the 60's, where else would you go to build a fishing camp but near the West Branch of the Ausable River, the top trout stream east of the Mississippi.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              There is a spirit of calm and serenity here that cannot be described; yet, when fun and action are called for, the camp transforms into a place of merriment.
