About Judy Arenberg

My husband and I both grew up by the beaches of South Jersey, where the closest ski mountains were 4 hours away. My husband is an avid skier, choosing to go to college in Mass, and I am an avid beach goer, sticking closer to home, and choosing a college in Philadelphia. Our Bearfoot Cabin is a happy medium, as we have the best of both worlds in Wilmington!

Judy Arenberg purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Judy Arenberg chose Wilmington

My husband and I first came to the Adirondacks in 1989, as one of our first 'vacations' together. After skiing in many Vermont ski areas, we always seemed to come back to Whiteface. When our 2 daughters were old enough to start skiing, we knew then that we would eventually build our own home to vacation as a family. The perfect opportunity came our way in 2005, and our Bearfoot Cabin became a reality. Now our girls are in college, and the Cabin is the one place we can all 'regroup' and have real family time.

What makes this cabin unique

Our cabin is less than 5 minutes to Whiteface Ski Area as well as Lake Everst, a public beach and swimming area. There are many trailheads for hiking within 3-10 minutes. In nearby Jay, we like to swim off the rocks in the summer, which is by one of the only covered bridges remaining in the area. And of course, Lake Placid is a 10 minute drive through the scenic Wilmington Notch...

Guestbook comments from the owner


Just wanted to let you know that we had a great time at the Bearfoot Cabin.

Your place is very comfortable and accommodating. We loved the location and enjoyed the woods and wildlife around the cabin.

We really lucked out with the weather we had...sunny and low winds. We had a blast.

We would stay again for sure..

Thanks and hope we can stay again in the future.

Great getaway! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Bearfoot Cabin! Perfect location tucked in the woods but close enough to everything we wanted to do. Cabin is clean and well kept. Kids thoroughly enjoyed the game room. Adults enjoyed time by the fire. Would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: Amie, We are so glad you and your family enjoyed your stay at our Bearfoot Cabin! Being “away from it all” yet “close enough to all the action” was one of the reasons we chose this location to build our vacation home. So great to hear you agree as well! Pleas keep us in mind if (when😉?) you return to the ADKs...! Judy and Dan

Fantastic Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had a really wonderful summer getaway here. The cabin was very clean and comfortable - but we were really most excited about everything outside! Lots of fires in the firepit with some serious room to play, too. There's so much to do in the area - a new and fun adventure every day. Swimming, hiking, boating, horseback riding, ropes course, mini golf that isn't too touristy...this place had it all!!

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here in August for 5 nights and had a wonderful time. The cabin is perfect - big enough for all of 6 us, very clean, comfortable, peaceful setting and the kitchen has everything you need. My husband and father-in-law spent most nights outside at the fire pit while my mother-in-law, me and the kids either played ping pong or foosball downstairs in the game room. The whole area is just beautiful and we would definitely go back and rent this cabin again. Thank you Judy and Dan!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was perfect for the eight of us including 2 teenagers. It was a quiet place to retire after a busy day of hiking. The cabin was clean with space enough for everyone. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed. The cabin was well located near many of the areas attractions. Would definitely stay again if we were in the area.

Awesome cabin at the end of a quiet road! We enjoyed the privacy and peacefulness along with some great fires in the evening! Would recommend to any group looking to enjoy some down time together. Great fishing nearby too!

Perfect for a family!

  • 5 of 5

My family (2 adults, 2 kids) and my parents recently stayed at Bearfoot for 3 nights and it was perfect for our needs! The location of the cabin- at the end of the street- gave that perfect secluded, surrounded by trees, feeling, however it was a gorgeous (short) drive to Whiteface and into Lake Placid. The cabin was modern on the interior, with all the amenities that you need! The layout of the rooms was perfect to give my parents some privacy in the master suite, and our family had the upstairs! The kids really loved having their own room. The rec room in the basement was great for keeping the kids occupied while we cooked dinner (or breakfast). The kids challenged Grandma to many games of ping pong! The outdoor firepit was perfect for roasting marshmallows and making s'mores. We had a great time at Bearfoot and would definitely stay here again in the future!
