The master bedroom has a queen-sized bed and two more can sleep in the trundle bed, while two guest rooms have a queen, & two singles respectively. There is a full pull-out sofa in the den/living room, and a futon in the finished basement. The wood stove is backed up by a conventional furnace, and there's a room downstairs for stowing away skis & hiking gear.
No other houses are visible from the property, so the desire to get away from it all is enhanced & fulfilled.
Runners, cyclists, cross-country skiers and hikers will run out of time, long before they run out of stunning mountain vistas to enrich their exercise, which is a major reason Ironman is held here every July. When your busy vacation day fades to dusk, there are several fine restaurants within a few miles of Beaver Creek Lodge, and if you want to make a full night of it, the Olympic Village of Lake Placid beckons, twelve miles away through one of the most beautiful drives in America, through the Wilmington notch along the West Branch of the Ausable River. Mountain Biking is big in the area. The Hardy Road Trailhead is about a mile from the house.
Don't forget your camera, as wildlife sightings include bobcat, red fox, fisher, the harmless Adirondack black bear and moose. If you don't see any of them, Guests may visit the nearby Adirondack Wildlife Refuge, where friends and family can meet and learn all about wolves, coywolves, coyotes, fox, bobcats, and see educational demonstrations with non- releasable birds of prey, like Bald Eagles, Great Horned Owls, Barred Owls, Screech Owls, Peregrine Falcons, Red-Tailed Hawks, and a crazy raven named Abie the Fishman, who was rehabilitated, but hangs around to entertain visitors.
The Refuge has canoes and kayaks, as well as public fishing access on Lake Everest, If you need a guide to take you hiking or fishing, we will line one up for you.
