Notes:
Whiteface Mountain Chalet is a fabulous home in immaculate condition. Our dedicated maintenance and cleaning teams keep the property in stellar condition at all times! The handyman service is onsite and if problems arise any issues will be promptly resolved. Todd and Kim take pride in their level of customer care and want to ensure your stay is as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Whiteface Mountain Chalet is a quality home built by local craftsmen with locally milled lumber. The home also has synthetic green siding. Durable siding reduces demand for harvesting and extracting raw materials and reduces waste. A plow service shovels snow (above 3-5 inches) in winter. Sand and a snow shovel are available on the front deck for guest use. Beautiful Everest Beach is a 5-minute drive from the chalet and is fantastic for swimming, walking, relaxing and BBQing. Free live music and kayak/SUP rental are available in summer.

Perfect - Again!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay again for the 3rd year in a row in the house. Everything was clean upon our arrival and all of the house amenities were working great. One thing to make this house even better would be to add a stock pile of extra beach towels for the hot tub/sauna.

Thanks! We will be back. :)

Great Family getaway in this beautiful home. AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about this home. 15 people came to celebrate a 50th birthday. The house is AMAZING. Two Spacious beautiful bedrooms upstairs with their own bathrooms. Another smaller bedroom upstairs, perfect for a couple or teens. On the main level, a nice sitting area with fireplace and a nice spacious kitchen area with seating for 12. And another main bedroom with a private bathroom. Also on the main floor off the kitchen is a 1/2 bath. Now, my favorite, was the lower level. There are two spacious bedrooms that have doors to the outside facing the stadium fire pit and mountains. Also on this level is a sauna and a beautiful huge bathroom with a STEAM Shower. I LOVED IT. The house has a beautiful wrap around porch giving you beautiful views of the mountains. Also on the porch is a hot tub. The home is also only 5 miles or so from the ski resort and about 15 miles from Lake Placid. The house is immaculate and top notch everything!!! The owners were very accommodating and respond quickly. They even let us know when the ski lift tickets were on sale for 50% off. I highly recommend this rental. We will definitely be back. Thank you so much!!!!! We were greeted by Kim when we arrived and received a welcome phone call from Todd to make sure we had everything we needed. 5+ stars in all areas.

Great rental for large families with all the amenities you need!

  • 5 of 5

Plenty of space for three families on our recent ski trip. The kids and adults alike loved soaking in the hot tub after a day on the ski hill. Great location too as it's 2 miles to Whiteface and a short drive into Lake Placid. Todd the owner is very responsive and accommodating. We are repeat renters with Todd and cannot recommend him and his properties highly enough.

We really enjoyed the large eat in kitchen and being able to hang out around the fire pit. Todd and Kimmy were very helpful and accomodating as always. Cant wait to book this amazing property again.

This fabulous vacation home is situated in Wilmington, NY, in the heart of the 6 million acre Adirondack Park.

Wilmington is nestled in the valley of the West Branch of the AuSable River and is home of Whiteface Mountain, site of the 1980 Winter Olympics and where today's top athletes from around the world train and compete.

Whiteface summit, with its unparalleled view, is accessible by Whiteface Veteran's Memorial Highway, which originates in downtown Wilmington, a 2-minute drive from the home. A visit to the Adirondacks is not complete without a drive to the top! After all, how many other roads lead directly to the summit of a mountain, with gorgeous views spanning hundreds of miles of wild land reaching as far as Vermont and Canada? Nowhere else is the beauty and vastness of the Adirondack Park so evident and easily accessible.

Most of Wilmington is state forest preserve, offering rugged wilderness beauty with access to hiking and mountain biking trails in summer and downhill and cross country skiing, snow shoeing and snowmobile trails in winter. The West Branch of the AuSable River is internationally renown for trout fishing.

Just a 5-minute drive from the home is Whiteface Mountain ski resort. Boasting over 283 acres of skiable terrain, 86 trails and 11 lifts, Whiteface Mountain has the greatest vertical drop east of the Rockies and features diverse terrain for beginner skiers and snow boarders, expert glades and slides for the advanced and loads of trails for everyone in between! The longest run is the 2.1 mile 'Wilmington Trail' and total skiing/boarding stretches over 22 miles. Whiteface Mountain is truly fun for everyone! In summer, Whiteface offers splendid views, gondola rides, mountain biking, 4x4 expeditions, extreme tubing and more.

Wilmington is also home to picturesque and swimmable Everest Beach, with SUP and kayak rental, BBQ pits, wooded nature trail and live music throughout summer. The town also has restaurants, a general store, mini golf and other conveniences for visitors.

Lake Placid is a beautiful 15-20 minute drive from Wilmington along NYS Route 86. Wilmington Notch on the way is breathtaking and has been designated part of the Olympic Scenic Byway. Hiking trailheads and beautiful High Falls Gorge are accessible right from the road!

Lake Placid is a charming, all-season resort town with a Main Street; unique, locally owned shops; loads of dining options; sporting and cultural events, movie theatre, mini golf and waterfront park where live music is featured weekly during summer. The town also has supermarkets, delis and other conveniences.

Your vacation home is situated in a prosperous community in the Adirondack Park proudly offering 4-seasons of fun and your choice of recreation, sport and cultural activities.

From your doorstep there are NYS-maintained hiking and biking trails, waterfalls, swimming and fishing spots and Everest Beach. We invite you to enjoy horseback riding, gondola rides, paddling, guided walks, hunting, rock climbing, white water rafting, mountain biking, boating, and a visit to Santa's workshop.

In Winter there are an incredible array of activities including: downhill and cross country skiing; ice skating; snowmobiling; winter trekking; snow shoeing; tobogganing; ice fishing; ice climbing; sleigh rides; bobsledding; ski jumping; viewing magnificent frozen water falls; and enjoying apres ski at dozens of restaurants/bars in Wilmington and Lake Placid.

When you're at home in the Chalet, soak in the spectacular view, enjoy our spacious deck, soothe aching muscles in the hot tub and dry sauna, curl up by the fire, BBQ and make memories with family and friends. Your vacation home has it all!

Need more ideas? There is so much to do in the Adirondacks that people return year after year!

Be sure to check out the Olympic Museum, located in the Olympic Center, only a few feet from the Herb Brooks Arena where the 1980 “Miracle on Ice” hockey game occurred and the Jack Shea Arena, home of the first indoor Winter Olympic skating arena. Explore the history and heritage of winter sports in Lake Placid - the first winter resort in the US - through artifacts, photographs and videos and visit the Olympic Center where athletes continue to train and compete daily.

Another must-see is The Wild Center, an incredible indoor/outdoor interactive museum with loads of amazing exhibits, including the Wild Walk trail through the tree tops!

Adirondack Scenic Railroad is a fun way for people of all ages and physical capacities to explore the Adirondack Park.

Take in a show at the Lake Placid Center for Arts. In its 42nd year and located just minutes from Lake Placid's Main Street the LPCA consistently presents arts of the highest caliber in music, dance and theatre performances, film exhibitions and visual arts presentations.
