“Everest Dream” is where the Bluebirds play!
This Perfect Ski and Waterfront Rental Home offers truly Five Star Accommodations and is located only three miles from Olympic Whiteface Mountain!
It is a two story, 3 bedroom home with everything updated with comfort and aesthetics in mind! It has been designed and furnished with careful selection of antiques, contemporary pieces and original artifacts from around the world. The richness of the Earth tones welcomes all with its warmth and is in harmony with the surrounding nature.
The casual elegance and comfort of this house makes for a very special experience of Town and Country. 'Everest Dream' is nestled in a valley, in the village of Wilmington , providing breathtaking views of both Whiteface and Stephenson Ranges. It sits on almost an Acre of private, fenced-in property that includes over 80 feet of shoreline on Everest Lake. Favorite among our guest is the 140 square foot fully screened, overlooking water gazebo! Furnished with luxury and comfort in mind.
We are in the heart of the High Peak Region and at the foot of Whiteface Olympic Mountain. Renowned West Ausable River with its' World Class trout fishing is our shoreline. Here you can swim, fish or launch the canoe or kayaks available for you to use - for a mellow paddle or some serious bird watching! Lake Everest Beach with live summer concerts is just across the river. Some prefer to sit on the dock and chat or watch the water roll by. Perhaps later in the evening you'll stoke a fire in one of the two fire pits. The large yard is great for playing croquet, play with children or your animal friends.
In Wilmington, you can submerge in the unique experience of an authentic Adirondack Village. Walking to the store, village library or for a country breakfast at a nearby restaurant brings back the joys of a time gone by in most places but lingers here in the Adirondacks. Lake Placid Village with all that it has to offer is just ten miles away on the most picturesque road of the Adirondacks. Here you can enjoy shopping, dining, arts and crafts, museums, The Olympic Center, golf, horse shows, movies, festivals, nightlife, ... or 'in short' - hustle and bustle of this special, lively Olympic Village.
An Adirondack style porch, furnished in a comfortable, eclectic manner welcomes all! Perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee while watching the mist lift off the mountains, or sip the wine to the evening serenade of cicadas.
The large living room opens up to a majestic, ever changing vista of the Mountains. The easy comfort of a couch and armchairs invites to become one with nature. After the sun goes down one can be entertained by choosing from our collection of movies, music or books. The gas fireplace will add a warmth to the ambiance of the room as well as the people in it.
The antique dinner table sits eight, with room for two more at the kitchen island. Perfect place for the whole family to have an evening of card games, monopoly or good old-fashioned conversation. The kitchen is a state of the art affair. You'll find all the tools and gadgets needed for preparing magnificent meals, few cookbooks as well.
For summer cooking you may want to step out to the deck. There is a gas grill, picnic table and Adirondack chairs grace the beautiful lawn.
Our eight person Hot Tub with special features and extra powerful jets is everybody's favorite spot.
In our study you'll be surrounded and perhaps inspired by an interesting collection of art, books, or the glow of candle light. By night the queen size futon and hand embroidered screen from India transform it into a comfortable bedroom for two.
The ground floor bedroom, furnished with a casual, country elegance, provides a Queen Size Bed and is easily accessible for those who don't care to climb the stairs.
The main floor has a bathroom with a bathtub. We try to keep the Epsom Salt handy, for those achy muscles from all that active fun.
The Master Bedroom is truly Masterful! A Queen Size Four Post Bed with a red canopy invites romance and the creation of special memories. The room is inviting and elegant with oriental touches, like the 17th century Chinese traveling chest.
For the little and big kids - a sunny room for happy times! Two sets of bunk beds, where the lower full size bunk folds into a couch during the day. The room is bright with color and hand-made art work from Guatemala.
Bathroom with a shower.
All the mattresses are brand new and of good quality. Bath and bed linens chosen carefully for their quality.

This house really feels like a home. Every room has a very personal touch to it. The hot tub outside is a great asset and the kitchen is extremely well equipped with everything you could possibly want. In addition to relaxing in front of the fireplace and enjoying tons of space around the house, the surroundings were also very beautiful and peaceful. This was definitely an upgrade from the other houses we have stayed at in Vermont. The mountain is close and very easy to get to as long as you have a car. I would strongly recommend! A real Everest Dream come true ;p Thanks, Charles and Renata, for making our stay very comfortable and assisting with finding the keys at 11.30pm on a Friday night!

Charles & Renata,
My family, my sister, other sister and her family truly enjoyed our stay. Your place was so comfortable, clean and gave us a feel of being at home. Everything that we needed was right there. Your description of amenities and everything else were to a tee and the information that you provided about places to eat, supermarkets and places to see were a great help. The location was perfect. It was so close to everything! The gazebo was such a delight to sit in early morning with coffee or late at night with a glass of wine :-). What a beautiful site sitting on your dock at the river. The fishing was also great. There was something for everyone of all ages to do including our dog. We are still talking about the wonderful vacation that we all had. Thank you so much for the memories that my sisters and our families will always treasure! I would recommend this property to anyone. Thanks again.
4 adults and 5 kids aged 8-15 stayed here confortably. We had everything we needed and the location couldn't be better (5 min from Whiteface). Great place!
Awesome place and perfectly located for winter sports!
My wife and I and our border collie spent 4 cozy nights at Everest Dream. It is extremely comfortable and has a well equipped kitchen. Bedrooms and bathrooms are very clean and well-presented. The gas log fire heats the living area next to the kitchen beautifully. We felt very much at home. Wilmington is in a great position for accessing the mountains nearby. We had a great time exploring some of the local hiking routes and a day's skiing at Whiteface, which had opened early because of recent snowfall. Our highlight was ascending Whiteface Mountain in snow and ice - our dog was in heaven. We enjoyed the hot-tub after our exertions. The house is well positioned and I can imagine the river/ lake access is wonderful when the water isn't frozen! A great stay.
I had the best stay at Everest Dream! My friends and I went up for St. Patrick's Day Weekend and we had a BLAST! Extremely close to White Face Mt, the town of lake placid, and most hiking destinations. The house was perfect, and I can not wait to come back in the summer. Thank you for a wonderful vacation! I will be recommending this to everyone!
