About the property

3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home full of amenities

Enjoy the best view in town of Whiteface Mountain while relaxing in an Adirondack chair on the front porch of Solitude Lodge! Nothing else in your sight except an historic barn, pine trees, birch tress, and the cliffs of Quaker Mountain. We've worked hard to think of everything we could do to help you leave your worries at home. You will not need to think about bringing linens or towels, buying wood for the fire place or fire pit, or removing your own trash. We are happy to take care of all of that for you at no extra charge.

Solitude Lodge is a newly, completely renovated home situated on 29 beautiful Adirondack Park acres. The home has 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths and sleeps 8 very comfortably. The master bedroom has it's own bathroom and a king size bed. Bedroom #2 has a queen bed. It shares a hallway bath with bedroom #3 which has a double bed and two twin beds. The half bath and laundry room are on the main floor off of the kitchen.The kitchen is completely new with granite tile counter tops, and all new appliances, including a dishwasher. It is loaded with all the pots, pans, dishes and utensils you will need to prepare and enjoy meals together. The dining room has a large Adirondack rustic style birch and antler table that seats at least 8. Glass doors lead onto the deep front porch where you will find Adirondack chairs, a gas grill, and picturesque views in every direction! The spacious living room has wide plank pine floors, hand hewn beams, a stone fireplace, reading area, chess table, foosball table, rustic bar and dart board, and a 40' flat screen TV with DVD player. A second TV and DVD player for gaming and movies is in bedroom #3.

Although we worked hard to make Solitude Lodge so beautiful, comfortable, and relaxing that you might not want to go outside... it will be worth the effort if you do! On the property you can gather around the stone fire pit at night. During the day you can hike, challenge your friends to a game of horse shoes, or explore the 29 acres. Within a few miles you will be able to kayak, swim, fish, and play volleyball at the town beach at Lake Everest. You can hike, snow shoe, cross country ski, and mountain bike on a new set of trails just created 1 mile from the house. You can also ski, or snow shoe at Whiteface Mountain just three minutes away! The activities available within 15 to 30 minutes away are endless. Of course there's The Village of Lake Placid, all The Olympic Venues, horse shows, Ausable Chasm, The Wilderness Center, and many of the 49 high peaks just to name a few.

When you are done exploring you can come home to Solitude! Put your feet up and enjoy each other. We have been lucky enough to create many cherished memories with family and friends in this area. Our goal when renovating Solitude Lodge was to build a home that you could create your own memories in!

Some comments from our guest book...

- 'We had such a wonderful time with our family. Half of us went skiing, half went to Lake Placid. The slopes are just minutes away. This is the nicest house we ever stayed in, and we've been coming to this area since the '80ies. Certainly we will be coming again!'

- 'This is an awesome place, how wonderful! Great views, lovely house, thank you!'

- 'Great cabin,

Great location,

Great ski'

About Jeannine Gasparini

We are a family of 4 with 2 teenage boys. Spending time together means everything to us! We spent years going north to ski at Whiteface Mountain with Grandma and Grandpa. The boys started skiing at The Kids Club at Whiteface when they were 4 years old. Now they are both ski instructors and one is in college. As they say... 'don't blink'. Over time we grew to enjoy sharing all of the seasons and activities this area has to offer with our family and friends. Buying and renovating this home was a dream come true. A real labor of love! Every choice we made was based on preserving the past and creating a future full of new traditions and mental snapshots! We would love to be a part of helping you create memories of your own!

What makes this house unique

When you sit on the front porch and have your morning coffee looking at the slopes of Whiteface, or your apres ski beverage looking at the cliffs of Quaker Mountain you will understand how we came up with the name Solitude

Privacy abounds

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Solitude Lodge with our son and his family for a week in July 2016. The house is well appointed from kitchen utensils to bath towels and very clean. It was a quiet, relaxing vacation for all of us. The kids loved having all the room to run outside and play. The views of Whiteface Mountain were beautiful, especially when you are having your morning coffee! We visited High Falls Gorge, Lake Placid and all it has to offer and Whiteface Mountain. Jeannine was prompt in answering any questions/issues we had. There was just one thing that would have made this vacation a "10" in our opinion, and that was to have A/C or a window unit upstairs to cool off the upstairs for sleeping. A few of the days we were there the temperature was in the 90's and very humid. Other than that, it was a great place to unwind and relax! Thank you Jeannine for letting us stay at your lovely vacation home, Solitude Lodge.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! We are so glad the generations could all enjoy the time together! The exceptional heat of last summer did catch us off guard. Sorry about that! We will have window units for this summer! Thanks again for choosing to stay at Solitude! We hope to have you as a guest again!

Wonderful Place

  • 5 of 5

Spent a long weekend here. This is a truly lovely place, well-kept, clean, and beautiful. Eating meals on the porch and watching the light change on Whiteface was relaxing, to say the least. Very convenient to Whiteface, Lake Placid, and plenty of hiking, mountain biking, etc... Highly Recommended!

Awesome Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rent a house annually in the ADK and invite our kids and grandkids to join us. Our daughter and her family joined us at Solitude Lodge. Two of our grandsons (ages 7 & 8) and their parents joined us as we hiked Whiteface Mt. We have had the privilege of introducing various grandkids to the mountains we love. They have developed many exciting outings. We enjoyed this house so much, as we came and went from hiking trails, the beach, kayaking. The nights were so memorable as we spent each one around the fire making smores and camp pies. The views of Whiteface and surrounds mountains were awesome each morning as we drank coffee and ate breakfast on the back deck. The house was well equipped, decorated in mountain furnishings and decor, and wood was fully provided. What a special birthday I had that week and enjoyed the comfort of this house to come back to after each adventure each day.

Solitude Lodge is located on 29 beautiful Adirondack Park acres divided by a scenic byway. As a family we enjoy sitting around the fire, hiking , and playing horse shoes on our own property. Some of our favorite things to do in the immediate surrounding area are skiing on Whiteface Mountain, kayaking at Lake Everest Beach, hiking and mountain biking in the new trail system recently created just 1 mile away. There is so much to enjoy!
