Property description

The Ausable Moose is a true Adirondack camp. This summer seasonal rental home, owned by the same family for fifty years, is lovingly decorated with Adirondack and family memorabilia. Over the years, we have hiked and biked, fished, mountain climbed, canoed, kayaked, antiqued, visited Lake Placid events, and best of all, just escaped the hustle and bustle of modern life in our cabin in the mountains.

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 5 miles away from Whiteface (the Olympic mountain) and only minutes from other attractions Wilmington and Lake Placid have to offer.

In Wilmington, you can walk with the wolves at the Adirondack Wildlife Refuge, visit Santa's summer home with the kids at the North Pole, or bike the many mountain roads and trails. You can hit the beach or rent a kayak/canoe at Lake Everest or jump the cliffs at the Flume if you dare. The trout fishing on the Ausable River is listed as the best in New York (some say the east!) so bring your fly rod! Speaking of trout, fine dining along the beautiful Ausable River at the Hungry Trout Restaurant is the perfect end to the day in Wilmington. Be sure to make a reservation for the river view table! All are only 5-10 min away.

A scenic 14 mile (20 min) drive will take you to famous Lake Placid, home of the '32 and '80 Winter Olympic Games, Ironman events, horse shows, and countless other outdoor competitions and events! Lake Placid offers more dining options including a great brewery, lots of shopping, a movie theater, and many other attractions. Bring your passport for a day trip to Montreal, only a two hour drive away.

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 with Roku (Netflix,HBO GO, etc.), a pull out sleeper couch, and room for romantic dining in front of the fireplace. There is free WiFi, and cell phone service is excellent.

Outside, 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 Super Market in town.

The 20x24ft screened in porch is everyone's favorite room. The porch features a dining area (seats 8 to 10), 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. There is a TV set up in here also with a DVD/VCR player, along with plenty of drawer and shelf space.

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

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

We also have over 20 board games and throughout the camp you will find an extensive library of Adirondack books (hiking, fishing, geology, history, etc.) as well as a general 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.

For your evening entertainment, there is a fire-pit in the back yard (we supply the wood) for you and your group to gather round, sing songs, toast marshmallows, or just to watch the Milky Way and shooting stars. By the way, this is a firefly haven. The yard is well suited if some in your group want to tent out.

Whatever you do, indoors or out, a day just hanging out at the Ausable Moose is an experience. Whether you come for a weekend or a week, you will see why we love our piece of the Adirondacks and you'll want to come back over and over again, just like we do.

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, NY, USA:
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.
