About Eric Arnold

This home has been in the family for one hundred fifteen years. Members of this family were the original pioneers who cleared the land in this neck of the woods. Much of the countryside remains the same with roots that date back to Revolutionary times.

Eric Arnold purchased this farmhouse in 1898

Why Eric Arnold chose Bloomingdale

Four great grandchildren of the original builder maintain the property. When not rented, the home is a family retreat that invites all members of our extended family to come, share and enjoy the beauty and traditions of home.

What makes this farmhouse unique

The traditions and history of this family home and its picturesque surroundings with a mountain stream, meadows and mountain views would not be traded for anything.

Charming old farmhouse

  • 4 of 5

We loved the serenity of this property and the home was clean and comfortable. It had everything we needed for making meals and relaxing in the family room. Convenient for skiing at Whiteface - only 15 mins from the mountain. Eric was exceptionally communicative with his emails in regards to our arrival and sent someone over to turn on the lights for us since we were arriving after dark. We would definitely recommend this house to other families coming up here to ski or stay in the area.

Excellent Stay Cant Go Wrong

  • 5 of 5

Large old farmhouse with lots of rooms, clean, lots of utensils, towels, etc. If you like quiet.....this is it. Accessible to Wilmington/Saranac Lake/Lake Placid. Because we have rented many spots thruout the ADKS we hauled a bunch of stuff we didn't need.....night sky was gorgeous 2 nites of the week.....I wish we had known about this spot years ago we would have been repeat customers..... we will in the future...

Great home for a large family get away!

  • 5 of 5

The Arnold Family Farmhouse was more than we expected. We stayed from December 25, 2016 - December 28, 2016. It was spacious ,very clean, well supplied kitchen and baths and everyone had a comfortable bed. Our grandchildren only had to go out the door to go sledding down into the field and then come in for hot chocolate! Eric was prompt and helpful in our planning and directions, even having us check in on Christmas afternoon! He also went out of his way to meet us after checkout with an item we had left behind. The family even blessed us with a dogsled ride for our 4 grandsons! Lots of fun and family memories were made during our visit to the Lake Placid area. Plenty of great places to eat in town. We would love to plan another visit in the Summer or Fall to go hiking and enjoy some quiet time by the fire pit. Thank you to the Arnold's for opening up their family home. I really want to let them know what a wonderful visit we had, but sort of want to keep the place a secret!

The grass is the Arnold Farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

My entire family had a wonderful time. We were lucky and had the best weather during the last week of August. Every morning a few of us went on a hike and then laid on the grass in the afternoon. The toddlers ran around barefoot from wake up to bedtime. Sheets and towels were of 5 star hotel quality. I also want to add that we had a cousin who is wheelchair bound and we never had an issue. I can't say enough. -Lana

This is our third year staying at this property in Wilmington and there will be many more after that. The owners have everything in place to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. The location is awesome secluded yet when you want something to do you can go in any direction and have fun. They stock the fireplace with enough wood 4 huge fires every night. The house is immaculately clean. A great time was had by all. Thank you to the Arnold Family once again

The perfect place for a group getaway!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect place; definitely a hidden gem in the ADK region. We absolutely LOVED the Arnold Farmhouse and highly recommend it! Three families (11 people total, 6 adults and 5 kids btwn ages of 6 and 9) enjoyed a comfortable, roomy stay in this beautiful, clean, farmhouse nestled in a quiet meadow setting. Views are absolutely spectacular (especially the clear night sky - you won't believe what the lack of light pollution will reveal!), and house has anything and everything you might need (booster seat, kids toys, lawn chairs, kitchen gadgets, games, etc). The walk across the wild strawberry-filled meadow leads to the beautiful, cool Lincoln Brook, perfect for the kids (and perhaps the adults) to play in on a hot day. Placid and Saranac are a short drive away. Take advantage of this region and stay away from the touristy hustle and bustle! This trip was a family vacation filled with a mix of relaxing and hiking the high peaks. Next trip may just be an Ausable River fly fishing trip!
