Nestled in the woods of Jay, NY is our chalet, a large three bedroom child friendly home. It includes a fully equipped kitchen and large deck where you can use the gas BBQ and dine in total peace and seclusion. There is A/C for summer days as well as two wood burning stoves with abundant wood supply to keep you warm during the winter. There are also three decks that offer beautiful views and gorgeous sunsets. You can also enjoy the game on a 60' big screen TV with or play dome hockey in the recreation room.

There are trails available for hiking and cross country skiing, tennis courts nearby, and snowshoes for you to enjoy. World class fishing is available only a five minute walk to the West Branch of the Au Sable River. A public family beach on Lake Everest is only a ten minute drive away. A fifteen minute drive will bring you to Whiteface, Mountain, home of the largest vertical skiing in the East and home to skiing events from the 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great week at your beautiful home. We saw a deer everyday on our in or out. The kids had a great time. There was so much to do -- we saw the ski events, toured the Olympic museum and rode the bobsled! That was definitely an experience the kids will never forget! The weather was perfect everyday. We had a nice lunch down at the river as well.

Thank you for allowing us to use your wonderful home! It is cozy, warm, inviting, and very clean.

So much fun!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect house for bringing two families together! There was a ton of space for everyone. We found everything we needed to feed a big group in the kitchen. We had some issues with the TV but the caretaker came right over and helped us out. We are hoping to return next year!

Cozy, clean, welcoming chalet!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the chalet with 4 adults and 4 kids for a week long ski vacation over February break. We skiied Whiteface, and spent time in Lake Placid. The kids ages ranged from 9 months to 14 years old and everyone was well accommodated and super comfortable. The chalet is pristine and very well equipped to handle groups this size. We cooked every morning and night and even barbecued. Sandra and Howard were great as well! Very quick in responding to any questions we had, overall a great experience - we highly recommend and look forward to returning ourselves!

Adding another review - Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Our family loves this little gem. Came in to a very clean and tidy place that made us all feel right at home. It's such a convenience to only need to bring a few groceries and have everything we need right there in the kitchen to make it! A major point for choosing this place was how it felt as if no one else is around you for miles - seclusion is always a must for our family and this place provided perfectly. Love the fact it is close to Lake Placid as well as the lake to boat on, and hiking naturally. You really don't want for anything staying here... like my title says, 'Perfect'. You won't regret renting this little gem.

Great Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family arrived to a beautiful clean cabin! The setting was just what we wanted. There is much to do in the area and surrounding areas. We enjoyed hikes on Whiteface Mtn., Cascade Mtn., and other hiking as well. Lake Placid was not a far drive so we enjoyed the many Olympic venues. The Passport was a must. It gave us entrance into the venues as well as discounts on other activities. The Bobsled experience was a highlight. The nearby Little Supermarket has great deli sandwiches. AuSable Chasms was fun too! Great recommendation in the book at the cabin. We also enjoyed fly fishing on the AuSable River. There were places to eat in the surrounding areas, but we also enjoyed grilling at the cabin some evenings. Our children loved the basement to play games, watch TV, and hangout. A bonus were all the deer we saw. One morning we watched 3 fawn out back of the cabin. You have a beautiful cabin and our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It's all that we had hoped for! Thanks!
