Whiteface Mountain Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Located ten minutes from the skiing at Whiteface Mt. and twenty-five minutes to the tourist attractions of Lake Placid, The 3 Bears Cabin, is a tranquil getaway location that is surrounded by as much excitement as you would wish to explore.

The 3 Bears Cabin is set in the solitude of the pine trees, yet is easily accessible, and a destination for family and friends. The Cabin is constructed using traditional post and beam craftsmanship where particular attention was paid to maintaining an airtight and draft free environment. The all-wood interior will surround you with a warm and comfortable feeling that can only be experienced in a home that is constructed in the post and beam fashion.

The main floor features cathedral-ceilings, and an open kitchen floor plan allows guests to interact while cooking and dining.

When it is time to retire for the evening, The 3 Bears Cabin will accommodate 6 guests and well trained dogs.

The cabin features two downstairs bedrooms, each with massive cedar mortise and tenon, queen-sized beds. The beds were crafted in the rustic tradition but the subtle pillow-top mattress will certainly soothe your tired muscles and ensure a restful night's sleep.

If one is looking to accommodate additional guests there is a comfortable queen-sized futon, with extra thick mattress, situated in front of the glass-fronted wood stove. Though the guests who choose to sleep on the futon will not have a traditional bed, they will however, have the experience of falling asleep in front of the fireplace while gazing up into the beautiful post and beam rafters.

The 3 Bears Cabin also has a full bath on each floor where one can take a hot shower and prepare for the adventures right at your doorstep.

Always a welcome destination, we were thrilled to return to the Cabin. The wood stove, relative seclusion and great deck made for a wonderful stay and our dog loved the visits from the neighbors Bernese. Thank you for sharing!

Wonderful Adirondack cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at the 3 Bears Cabin! The house is spacious and cozy with nice kitchen, dining and living room areas. Nathan provided plenty of wood and newspaper for the stove in the living room. Everything was spotless when we arrived and the house had all the basic amenities available. The 2 bedrooms were comfortable and perfect for our family of four. The house is well-located-15 minutes for Whiteface and a half hour from Lake Placid. It snowed our first night and by the morning the roads and our driveway had been plowed. Thank you Nathan for a great stay!

Textbook Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the cabin was perfect. The owner(s) definitely get an A+ for their cabin decorating skills. I especially liked the light fixture over the kitchen table. Everything was perfect and we'll kept. My daughter appreciated the posh TV (yea, I know so much for isolation in the woods) and the Internet worked great. Nathan was also very quick to respond to any communication. I would love to stay again.

Understood and over delivered, this home and its owner were fantastic. From the VT castings Wood stove to the beautiful deck, this house was the perfect retreat. Grill, tv and beds were all fantastic and the layout was ideal. We will be back.

Good location. not so good tv

  • 3 of 5

The lcoation was great and the cabin is amazing. The kitchen was stocked with spices and cooking supplies, just like living in a house. Unfortunately the gas grill was broken and so was the tv. After three tries I finally heard back from the caretaker who offered no help and the owner did not return my emails until two days after arrival when I called the contact phone number. We gave up an afternoon waiting for the Dish repair people to arrive only to tell us we were out of luck as the pine trees are too tall and the satellite tv would not pick up eithe rof the satellite signals. We had five chanels we could view the last four days. The owner stated that it will be a year and a half before he can get cable so I would not rent if you want to have many channels on the tv. I would not have rented this if I had known the tv would not have been available.

Owner's Response: ** Update- I have just spent 2 weeks at the cabin and have switched to DirecTV which uses different satelites and we now have a perfect HD signal. Also, the grill has been replaced.** I did applogize to this guest for not seeing his email and responded to his phone call immediately which I feel is reasonable as 48 hours is a business norm for email. I do however have my phone with me at most times and I was able to speak with him and get Dish out to the cabin for repair upon his first phone call to me. The result was that the Dish signal has become weak and if raining or overcast there may be an outage on some channels. One thing to note this cabin has high speed internet and a Blu ray player that can stream Netflix and Amazon and many other streaming services. I was unable to make this guest happy with the TV but most people come to the mountains to get away and do not miss having a particular channel and are more than happy to watch a movie or actually spend time with friends and family. This is the first I have heard of any issues with the grill and it will be repaired/replaced.
