GREAT SUMMER GETAWAY!!

Jay House Rental Photos and Description

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 spring and summer around the corner, The Eagles Nest will be a perfect place to for you to return to after enjoying a wide variety of outdoor activities in the ancient beauty of the Adirondacks. The Eagles Nest has two full baths, a granite 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 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!

Tom and Lisa Smith will be your hosts for your stay. We are life time residents of the Adirondack Mountains and moved to Jay in 2005 after having lived in Lake Placid, the Olympic village all of our lives. Tom is a retired teacher of 31 years and Lisa has pursued her passions of gardening, writing, sewing and raising their 3, now adult, children.

Lisa Smith purchased this house in 2005

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!!

The Eagle's Nest is a cozy, inviting place for you to rest. The views out of the windows will calm your very core. There is a covered Farmer's porch for you to sit on and enjoy a meal or your morning coffee. The kitchen is well equipped and in the winter months you will warm yourself by a propane fired soapstone stove in the living area. In season,a small fireplace area is outside for your evening roasting of marshmallows or just enjoying the stars and the evening air.

Beautiful place and amazing Hosts!

We had a party of 5 girls go for a weekend getaway to the mountains and we couldn't asked for a better place. Its about 10 minutes from Whiteface mountain and 20 minutes from Lake Placid. We didn't arrive to Eagle's Nest till midnight and unfortunately, because the house is located up a steep driveway, our rental mini-van (with summer tires) got stuck in the driveway due to the winter conditions. So we abandoned the vehicle and went straight in to get some rest. The next morning, Tom was so helpful and managed to maneuver the van to a safe place! No questions asked and did not make a big deal about it. That alone deserves 6 out of 5 stars!
The rest of the stay was relaxing, Tom was very friendly and helpful with maps and places to visit around the area.

Highly recommended!

Fantastic property and hospitality. Lisa and Tom went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed. Fantastic hosts... property is only a short drive from Whiteface Mountain. Upon Lisa's recommendation, we tried the homemade cheddar cheese at a little place in Jay - and it was fantastic - best cheddar cheese I have ever tasted. Thanks Tom and Lisa - will definitely be back!

Six of us stayed at Eagle's Nest for 3 nights. It was a perfect fit for us - good layout, clean, nicely appointed in Adirondack style, great kitchen, lovely view and about 10-15 min from Whiteface. Lisa was friendly and helpful but not at all intrusive.

ski trip to Whiteface

My a buddy and I stayed at the Eagles nest for a ski trip. We were worried that the owners lived downstairs as we get loud when we have a few wobbly pops. Even though I'm sure we keep them up all hours of the night they did not mind and said that as long as we have a good time they could deal with the noise. The place had absolutely everything. The one and only reason I rated this a 4 over a 5 star is that it was really far from Lake placid and because it was just my friend and I, we had to go there to find entertainment.
Lisa is a sweetheart and I hope you can now get some sleep lol

This house is a little gem! Clean, comfortable, and cozy. Within a few minutes’ drive from Whiteface ski area. This is perfect for a weekend ski trip with old friends and a good bottle of red on the porch enjoying the view. Your hosts are the most welcoming people. They are thoughtful, knowledgeable of the surroundings and very pleasant. They’ll make you feel like family. Ask about the bobsleigh experience in Lake Placid!

So stop looking! This rental is undoubtedly trouble-free. Thank you!

Ten minutes from the base of Whiteface Mountain, in the quaint and historic community of Jay, NY, you will find our vacation rental property affectionately called “The Eagles Nest”. It is located on a hillside overlooking the Jay Range just off RT 9N and is surrounded by beautiful gardens and our wine 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, with its natural rock water slides and swimming holes. A 2 minute drive down to the village deli will offer you the best Cheddar cheese in the Adirondacks, while another ten minutes will bring you to the famous Whiteface Mountain. There 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 or drive up the scenic highway. 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 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! In Lake Placid,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 miracle on ice occurred! Close your eyes and imagine the energy the night when the US hockey team beat the Russians on that historic winter night back in 1980! Whether you visit in the summer or the winter there is fun and adventure to be had! If you love to fish and hike, you are minutes away from fly fishing on the AuSable river as well as close proximity to the major trail heads of the High Peaks.

The Olympic village of Lake Placid is a short 25 minute scenic drive where you will find more activities and great dining experiences! Enjoy 5 star dining in Lake Placid’s finest, or if casual dining is what you enjoy there are many options as well! Shopping is also plentiful on Main Street.

Just minutes away from us, 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!

The Eagle's Nest is located in the upper main level of our home and is completely equipped with all that you will need for your vacation enjoyment. A fully equipped granite kitchen will allow you to dine in if you would like. The Nest warmed in the winter by a propane fired soap stone stove that adds to the cozy nature of The Nest and electric heat.It is a perfect getaway that can accommodate up to 6 comfortably

The views from the Eagle's nest are hard to beat! The Jay range will greet you every morning along with the birds, beauty of gardens and a vineyard that surround you in season and Fall foliage peaks around the end of September and the Mountain range looks like a beautiful carpet. There is a porch where you can eat a meal or have your morning coffee.

We hope you will come for a visit and let the stresses of life melt off you in the town we love, Jay, NY!
