Property description


The 'Eagle's Nest' is made up of the upper two levels of our log home for slightly larger needs of a family on vacation up to 6 in number.
With the fall and winter ski season soon upon us, The Eagles Nest will be a perfect place to for you to return to after enjoying a day at Whiteface or other outdoor activities in the ancient beauty of the Adirondacks. The Eagles Nest has two full baths, a granite countered kitchen,two bedrooms and a sleeping loft which will sleep 6 in total, comfortably. There is a sleeper sofa in the living area with soapstone propane stove, as well as a dining area with a large oak pedestal table.There is a High efficiency washer and dryer on premises and High speed internet and cable tv and wireless throughout.
The views from here are hard to beat! The Jay range can be seen from covered porches where,in season,you can eat a meal or have your morning coffee.
The Eagle's Nest is located on a hillside overlooking the Jay Range just off RT 9N and is surrounded by beautiful gardens and our vineyard. We call it the Eagle's Nest because it has the cozy feeling of just that…a nest that you may rest in and get the well-deserved break that you may be seeking. A ten minute walk, you will find the historic covered bridge, crossing the beautiful Ausable River. A ten minute drive will bring you to the famous Whiteface Mountain where from spring to fall, you may take a leisurely gondola ride to the top of little Whiteface for breathtaking views of the high peaks or hop on your mountain bike for the challenging ride down. Winter will offer skiing and snowboarding down snow covered trails where Olympians have ventured!
In the opposite direction, 20 minutes away is the Verizon Sports complex where athletes race 90 miles per hour on a speeding luge and skeleton sleds and where you too can experience a bobsled ride or just watch if you are faint of heart! Ride to the top of the 90 meter ski jump or take guided tour at the Olympic arena. View the ice rink where the magic of the 1980 'Miracle on Ice' occurred when the US hockey team beat the Russians on that historic winter night.
If you love to fish and hike, you are minutes away from the best fly fishing on the West Branch of the Au Sable River as well as close proximity to the High Peaks major trail heads in Keene.
The Olympic village of Lake Placid is a short 25 minute scenic drive where you will find more activities and great dining and shopping experiences!
Just 10 minutes away from the Nest, in Wilmington you will also find great options for dining, whether you are looking for steak or seafood, a burger, pizza or wings!! As you can see you will not be bored when you visit unless of course you choose to be! We hope you will come for a visit and let the stresses of life melt off you in The Eagle's Nest in Jay, NY!

Ten minutes from the base of Whiteface Mountain, in the quaint and historic community of Jay, NY, you will find our vacation rental property affectionately called “The Eagles Nest”. It is located on a hillside overlooking the Jay Range just off RT 9N and is surrounded by beautiful gardens and our wine vineyard. We call it the Eagle's nest because it has the cozy feeling of just that…a nest that you may rest in and get the well-deserved break that you may be seeking.

A ten minute walk, you will find the historic covered bridge, crossing the beautiful Ausable River, with its natural rock water slides and swimming holes. A 2 minute drive down to the village deli will offer you the best Cheddar cheese in the Adirondacks, while another ten minutes will bring you to the famous Whiteface Mountain. There you may take a leisurely gondola ride to the top of little Whiteface for breathtaking views of the high peaks or hop on your mountain bike in the summer or drive up the scenic highway. Winter will offer skiing and snowboarding down snow covered trails where Olympians have ventured! In the opposite direction, 20 minutes away is the Verizon Sports complex where athletes race 90 miles an hour on a speeding luge and skeleton sleds and where you too can experience the “Champaign of Thrills”, otherwise known as a bobsled ride or just watch if you are faint of heart! In Lake Placid,Ride to the top of the 90 meter ski jump or take guided tour at the Olympic arena. View the ice rink where the magic of the miracle on ice occurred! Close your eyes and imagine the energy the night when the US hockey team beat the Russians on that historic winter night back in 1980! Whether you visit in the summer or the winter there is fun and adventure to be had! If you love to fish and hike, you are minutes away from fly fishing on the AuSable river as well as close proximity to the major trail heads of the High Peaks.

The Olympic village of Lake Placid is a short 25 minute scenic drive where you will find more activities and great dining experiences! Enjoy 5 star dining in Lake Placid’s finest, or if casual dining is what you enjoy there are many options as well! Shopping is also plentiful on Main Street.

Just minutes away from us, in Wilmington you will also find great options for dining, whether you are looking for steak or seafood, a burger, pizza or wings!! As you can see you will not be bored when you visit unless of course you choose to be!

The Eagle's Nest is located in the upper main level of our home and is completely equipped with all that you will need for your vacation enjoyment. A fully equipped granite kitchen will allow you to dine in if you would like. The Nest warmed in the winter by a propane fired soap stone stove that adds to the cozy nature of The Nest and electric heat.It is a perfect getaway that can accommodate up to 6 comfortably

The views from the Eagle's nest are hard to beat! The Jay range will greet you every morning along with the birds, beauty of gardens and a vineyard that surround you in season and Fall foliage peaks around the end of September and the Mountain range looks like a beautiful carpet. There is a porch where you can eat a meal or have your morning coffee.

We hope you will come for a visit and let the stresses of life melt off you in the town we love, Jay, NY!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Tom and Lisa Smith will be your hosts for your stay. We are life time residents of the Adirondack Mountains and moved to Jay in 2005 after having lived in Lake Placid, the Olympic village all of our lives. Tom is a retired teacher of 31 years and Lisa has pursued her passions of gardening, writing, sewing and raising their 3, now adult, children.

Why the Owner Chose Jay, NY, USA:
When Tom and Lisa sold their home in Lake Placid and went on a search for the new spot it was love at first 'site'. We knew we wanted to build a log home and we knew we wanted peaceful, gentle living with mountain views. This was the first property we saw and we knew it was it! It had everything we were looking for and it has proven to be perfect in every way! The grounds are perfect for Lisa's many gardens and have recently become the grounds for a wine vineyard,under the supervision of our oldest son who is a sommelier' The property has been fun to make ours! You will enjoy the beauty that we have created in this spot!!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Eagle's Nest is a cozy, inviting place for you to rest. The views out of the windows will calm your very core. There is a covered Farmer's porch for you to sit on and enjoy a meal or your morning coffee. The kitchen is well equipped and in the winter months you will warm yourself by a propane fired soapstone stove in the living area. In season,a small fireplace area is outside for your evening roasting of marshmallows or just enjoying the stars and the evening air.
