“Everest Dream” is where the Bluebirds play!
This Perfect Ski and Waterfront Rental Home offers truly Five Star Accommodations and is located only three miles from Olympic Whiteface Mountain!
It is a two story, 3 bedroom home. It has been designed and furnished with comfort and aesthetics in mind! Our careful selection includes antiques, contemporary pieces and original artifacts from around the world. The richness of the Earth tones welcomes all with its warmth and is in harmony with the surrounding nature.
The casual elegance and comfort of this house makes for a very special experience of Town and Country. 'Everest Dream' is nestled in a valley, in the village of Wilmington , providing breathtaking views of both Whiteface and Stephenson Ranges. It sits on almost an Acre of private, fenced-in property that includes over 80 feet of shoreline on Everest Lake. Favorite among our guest is the 140 square foot fully screened, overlooking water gazebo! Furnished with luxury and comfort in mind.
We are in the heart of the High Peak Region and at the foot of Whiteface Olympic Mountain. Renowned West Ausable River with its' World Class trout fishing is our shoreline. Here you can swim, fish or launch the canoe or kayaks available for you to use - for a mellow paddle or some serious bird watching! Lake Everest Beach with live summer concerts is just across the river. Some prefer to sit on the dock and chat or watch the water roll by. Perhaps later in the evening you'll stoke a fire in one of the two fire pits. The large yard is great for playing croquet, play with children or your animal friends.
In Wilmington, you can submerge in the unique experience of an authentic Adirondack Village. Walking to the store, village library or for a country breakfast at a nearby restaurant brings back the joys of a time gone by in most places but lingers here in the Adirondacks. Lake Placid Village with all that it has to offer is just ten miles away on the most picturesque road of the Adirondacks. Here you can enjoy shopping, dining, arts and crafts, museums, The Olympic Center, golf, horse shows, movies, festivals, nightlife, ... or 'in short' - hustle and bustle of this special, lively Olympic Village.
An Adirondack style porch, furnished in a comfortable, eclectic manner welcomes all! Perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee while watching the mist lift off the mountains, or sip the wine to the evening serenade of cicadas.
Our living room opens up to a majestic, ever changing vista of the Mountains. The easy comfort of a couch and armchairs invites to become one with nature. After the sun goes down one can be entertained by choosing from our collection of movies, music or books. The gas fireplace will add a warmth to the ambiance of the room as well as the people in it.
The antique dinner table sits eight, with room for two more at the kitchen island. Perfect place for the whole family to have an evening of card games, monopoly or good old-fashioned conversation. The kitchen is a state of the art affair. You'll find all the tools and gadgets needed for preparing magnificent meals, few cookbooks as well.
For summer cooking you may want to step out to the deck. There is a gas grill, picnic table and Adirondack chairs grace the beautiful lawn.
Our outdoor six person Hot Tub is everybody's favorite spot.
In our study you'll be surrounded and perhaps inspired by an interesting collection of art, books, or the glow of candle light. By night the queen size futon and hand embroidered screen from India transform it into a comfortable bedroom for two.
The ground floor bedroom, furnished with a casual, country elegance, provides a Queen Size Bed and is easily accessible for those who don't care to climb the stairs.
The main floor has a bathroom with a bathtub.
The Master Bedroom is truly Masterful! A Queen Size Four Post Bed with a red canopy invites romance and the creation of special memories. The room is inviting and elegant with oriental touches, like the 17th century Chinese traveling chest.
For the little and big kids - a sunny room for happy times! Two sets of bunk beds, where the lower full size bunk folds into a couch during the day. The room is bright with color and hand-made art work from Guatemala.
Bathroom with a shower.

We all enjoyed the long weekend spent at this rental!
Close friends getting away for a long weekend...was great! Close enough to Lake Placid, to be able to enjoy the shops and have lunch! Then just enjoyed some down time, in the rental~
In general, this rental was very nice!
I’d might recommend a few things, to make it better...but, overall was very nice!
We would definitely rent it again!
It Could Have Been Great
I read the reviews & thought I was getting a gem. Unfortunately, there were so many little things that made this a rock that had not been polished. The place was in a great location for getting to everything, Whiteface Ski Resort, Lake Placid, etc. Unfortunately, the neighborhood was rundown, with junky houses on both sides. The owner failed to tell us that it was OFF OFF OFF season and NONE of the restaurants in the area were open. Some in Lake Placid were also closed.The place was well decorated, but the furniture was not comfortable. After the first night of sitting on the sofa in the Family Room (where the TV was- see comment later) I had a major back ache. So we moved to the hot tub. Even with the jets on high, that was almost no agitation.The main cover is so waterlogged that my husband & I had to struggle to get it back in place.The hot tub was one of the features we were excited about, but after that 1 experience, we did not use it again. We had watched a DVD that we brought and, after the hot tub, decided to watch TV. It would not come on, so the next morning we called the owner and her fix (initially) was for US to call Frontier. After 2 1/2 hrs on the phone (NOT THE WAY WE PLANNED ON SPENDING OUR VACATION!), they wanted us to move the TV (which was an OLD RCA heavy TV inside a wooden cabinet (about the size of a double wide refrigerator) that also contained the Dish Box, a Toshiba VCR/DVD player, a Samsung DVD player AND a Sony DVD player in addition to a drawer full of VHS tapes). I send an email to the owner that we WOULD NOT MOVE that TV and went sightseeing. She sent a message the housekeeper would be there at 2 pm, BUT we had to leave the key in the box outside (DUH! we had to go back home to leave the key. And then wasted another 1 1/2 hrs while the housekeeper tried to figure out what was wrong.) The housekeeper finally did some kind of kluggy (her words) fix to get it going. But it meant that if we wanted to watch DVDs we would have to physically uncable the connection from the Dish box and move to (one of) the DVD players. Worst picture I had ever seen on a TV. The gas fireplace was a delight and the bed (downstairs) slept comfortably. The owner can't do anything about the neighborhood, but she could spend a couple of dollars to replace the hot tub cover & replace the TV. At least she responded promptly after we told her Frontier could not find anything wrong and Tracy, the housekeeper, was a delight.
We loved the property. It is a very cute house in a great location! Can’t wait to come back when it’s warmer to take advantage of being on the river!
Perfect Vacation House
The house was exactly as described and really nice. We were a group of six adults and had plenty of space and all the amenities you could think of. The home was clean, everything worked and the hot tub was an excellent hangout after a long day of skiing Whiteface.
We will definitely be back!
Great Location, Bohemian Ski House
The home was in a perfect location for skiing and related attractions. It is only a 5 minute drive to Whiteface mountain and about 20 minutes to downtown Lake Placid. Overall, the home was clean and comfortable. There was plenty of towels, sheets, blankets, and robes to utilize. The kitchen was stocked for what we needed to cook a home cooked meal. My family enjoyed the hot tub on the deck for a post ski relaxation time. The home was perfect for our mini winter get away.
Second time we stayed.
Second time we stayed. Very clean and comfy house. Everything seemed to work. The surroundings of the home was absolutely beautiful in fall and Winter! The only issues was a remote we found melted and a slat broken, you'd think they would be fixed before another family came. I would DEFINATLY stay AGAIN!!!!
I'm so sorry Connie that your stay with us was only a four star experience!
You are totally right, we would certainly address these issues if we would only had known about it. We do ask of our guests to report any issues or damages as soon as they appear, however none of this was brought to my attention until now. I will look into it and make the necessary corrections.
