Overview

Photos and Description of the Jay vacation house rental

Log Home Accommodations for 2 to 6 people

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!

As a side note there is an apartment on the ground floor that is not included and is used by our family.

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!
