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 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 in the summer. 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!

Why Lisa Smith chose Jay
When Tom and Lisa sold their home in Lake Placid and went on a search for the new spot it was love at first 'site'. We knew we wanted to build a log home and we knew we wanted peaceful, gentle living with mountain views. This was the first property we saw and we knew it was it! It had everything we were looking for and it has proven to be perfect in every way! The grounds are perfect for Lisa's many gardens and have recently become the grounds for a wine vineyard,under the supervision of our oldest son who is a somelier' The property has been fun to make ours! You will enjoy the beauty that we have created in this spot!!
