About the property

2 bedroom home, wooded haven, with mountain views and River frontage

The cottage on Ausable is a serene getaway. Views of whiteface mountain and Ausable River frontage make this property exceptional. The private Jacuzzi is perfect after whiteface ski! Outdoor activities are steps away with wooded acreage on site for hiking, fishing, skiing, snowshoeing, and biking. We are located on the west branch of the Ausable River, voted the best trout fishing in the state of New York. All equipment can be arranged for you.

Ski whiteface and come home to the newly renovated cottage with every amenity: fully stocked kitchen available with 5 burner gas stove, outdoor grill, and disposal with dishwasher. Full basement with washer/dryer

Outdoor jacuzzi was just installed off the Master Bedroom French Doors. The deck is private where you can hear the rushing river. Crawl in to cozy fluffed beds and down pillows with wooded views.

The Adirondack theme cottage was crafted with custom woodwork, natural stone, granite kitchen countertop and peninsula that comfortably seats 4. The artwork was crafted locally and the walls are filled with our own adventure travel photography.

The home is a 5 minute drive to Whiteface Mountain. The country store and Supermarket is a 5 minute walk. Also within walking distance is local chocolates, coffee, a café, ice cream, and an activity park.

About Anne or Rick

I acquired this property because of my love for the adirondacks. I started a business here in 1988 and have never wanted to leave. I enjoy the community I serve and the natural beauty in Wilmington all year round. The resources and outdoor activities here are second to none. I hike, hunt, fish, ski, snowshoe or mountain bike daily. The best vacation is right here at home

Anne or Rick purchased this cottage in 2014

PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

Great house in every aspect. Perfect for our family trip up to ADK.

House - awesome

Bedrooms - awesome

Kitchen - awesome

Family Room - awesome

Bathroom - clean and awesome

Hot tub - AWESOME

Weather - Awesome and cold

Only thing missing was a DVD player but was no big deal. Our kids were just excited for us to watch Lego Batman movie for family movie night but instead we watch NCAA March Madness basketball, which I really wanted to watch.

Honestly, the house has everything you need and some more. Don't think twice and just book it now. You will not be disappointed.

Excellent relaxing weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Went up with my husband for the weekend and had a great time! The house was lovely and well-stocked, including a good set of cooking knives in the kitchen (our favorite room) and it was well-insulated from the cold (temps varied between near-record high around 50 down to about 5 and you couldn't tell from inside). We're not much for skiing, but were able to fit in some hiking around the area, which is highly recommended and easy to access (just remember crampons in winter). Speaking of, if you're interested in Whiteface for any reason, this cabin is *very* conveniently located (including a great view of the peak), but the town of Wilmington is much less crowded than Lake Placid. The cabin is also very close to the local store which, while small, carries just about anything you might need (or forgot to pack).

The hot tub was very well appreciated and worked like a charm, with the Ausable river doing its thing right nearby. Admittedly, the hot tub is a little exposed to the neighbor's view--the houses are far apart, there's just not much brush to obstruct the view.

One small caveat--although this cabin was perfect for a couple, it might be a little tight for a larger family (1 or 2 kids would be okay), so keep that in mind.

In summary, we had an awesome time hiking, cooking, relaxing, and getting away from it all. We recommend this cabin to anyone looking for the same excellent experience and would certainly do it again ourselves if/when we have the opportunity!

What an amazing place! The home was cozy and sitting in the hot tub under the stars was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We are already planning on coming back! It was the perfect romantic weekend for my wife and I. What a great spot right on the river. The highlight of the weekend was just sitting in the hot tub and looking up at the stars...and just relaxing. We were able to do a little hiking and venture into Lake Placid to check out a movie and have dinner. However, when we were out, we couldn't wait to get back to the house. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer!

Great house in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house to enjoy the Whiteface Mountain area of Lake Placid. The house was very clean, and had everything you would need to enjoy your stay. Would highly recommend!!
