-- First floor washer/dryer,

About Mary and Michael Dowd

This recently fully updated camp has been our family's Adirondack home-away-from-home for four generations. Our grandfather grew up in the area, and wanted to share the beauty of Adirondacks with his grandchildren. In the same spirit that he shared this camp and the Adirondacks with all of us, we look forward to sharing it with you for your vacation.

Mary and Michael Dowd purchased this cabin in 1960

Why Mary and Michael Dowd chose Whiteface Mountain

We have so many wonderful memories of time spent here with our family. It is a playground for all ages in all year round. And our location made for a quick trip to whatever was the day’s preferred activity.

In any season there is hiking to be found for all ages and levels of expertise from the trails around Lake Placid, to the challenge of the 46 High Peaks.

In summer our parents would make a picnic lunch and we would all go spend the day at Mirror Lake Beach swimming and sunning and playing in the sand or some catch-and-release fishing. We would sometimes finish up with a walk through town for ice-cream or a nice dinner at one of the wonderful restaurants.

In the Winter we would wake up in the dark to pack everyone in the car so we could be the first on the slopes at Whiteface. Or if we wanted to sleep in there were trips to Lake Placid for a trip across Mirror Lake on a dog sled, or the thrill of flying down the toboggan slide and out over the frozen water. Always followed by hot chocolate and cozy chats at home with the people you love.

What makes this cabin unique

We hope to offer small groups and families the chance to find the same enjoyment that we have received from visiting the Adirondacks for generations. The house has an open-plan area for dining and communing, but private areas as well for rest and relaxation apart from the group. We offer a lot of value for reasonable rates at our cozy home, because we think people can enjoy the outside without losing modern amenities inside.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Wilmington. Mary and Michael were very responsive and gave us great ideas for things to do in the area. There home is located in a very pleasant spot and we had privacy. Lake Placid was only 25 minutes away and we enjoyed visiting the Olympic sights and Whiteface mountain. Their home is cozy and had enough beds for all of us - family of six. Would definitely stay there again.

Awesome cabin, great location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great cabin that is very close to Whiteface mountain. The cabin was very roomy, well stocked and very clean. I was up for the Wilmington Whiteface MTB race and this is a great home base for that event as well as any of the other biking events in the summer. The cabin has easy access to for both road and mountain bike racers to train and prepare for events. The owners were very easy to communicate with and provided quick response with any questions. I will definitely choose this place again next year.

Cozy camp, great location

  • 4 of 5

Your house was really lovely and it cozy and warm when we arrived. Plenty of room for all of us!

Your camp is so close to everything! We were at Whiteface one day, did some cross country skiing at Mt Van Hovenburg and were also able to enjoy a trip to the High Gorge for a nice long hike along the river.

Your suggestions for things to do and places to eat were all spot on! We had dinner at the Rosalia's right around the corner from you one night and loved it!

Thank you for a lovely place to stay during our great vacation. We are already making plans to stay there again!
