Overview

About the property

Wilmington, New York

You'll feel right at home the moment you arrive at this wonderful Wilmington, New York vacation rental house, situated on 20 scenic acres backing up to state land. Surrounded by picturesque woods with the soothing sound of a trickling mountain stream in the background, this quaint log home feels quite removed without being remote, making it the perfect setting for your next rejuvenating retreat!

THE PROPERTY

With 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, and 2,200 square feet of tastefully decorated living space, this beautiful residence is a fantastic size and layout for families, couples out for a romantic getaway, or a group of close friends traveling together. Everyone in your travel party will love this home's rustically charming all-wood interior, boasting a variety of delightful touches such as majestic cathedral ceilings and a floor-to-ceiling wood burning fireplace in the living room, complete with an attached moose head and subtle wood scent throughout. On the first level, you'll find the cozy living room, kitchen, den, queen bedroom with full bathroom, laundry room with half bath, and the mudroom entrance between the kitchen and garage, where you can conveniently enter the house directly from the garage without exposing yourself to the elements. The mudroom also offers access to a small porch and deck, perfect for relaxing outdoors while enjoying the sights and sounds of nature. Prepare your favorite home-cooked meals in the spacious, well-appointed kitchen, fully equipped with granite countertops, a 6-burner gas stove, and all the other necessary modern culinary appliances. The home's upper level overlooks the living room and features a great loft area with 2 more bedrooms and an additional full bath with shower and separate Jacuzzi tub. The kids will love playing on this level, and the stairs are awesome - each step is a half log! Look forward to spending leisurely afternoons sitting in one of the Adirondack chairs out on the large covered front porch, where you can admire the beautiful woods with glimpses of mountaintops peeking through. You'll be able to see full mountain views during the cooler months when the leaves are down. On clear nights when the sky is dark, the stars and the moon shine exceptionally bright, providing stellar opportunities for unbelievable stargazing. The visibility of stars here is truly amazing!

THE LOCATION

This area has a lot to offer for both outdoor enthusiasts as well as those less inclined to the outdoors, and this property is ideally located to let you enjoy it all! Lake Everest in Wilmington is only 1.6 miles away from the house and features a town beach, boating, and swimming. About 3 miles away is the Flume on the AuSable River, home to waterfalls and a fun swim hole. You'll also find great hiking trails and ample fishing spots nearby, most notably excellent trout fishing. Whiteface Mountain Ski Area, an Olympic mountain and one of the 46ers, is only 5 miles from the property and offers terrific hiking and skiing. Whiteface was the home of the 1980 Olympics and has the greatest vertical drop in the east. It's a full-service mountain with 87 trails, 11 lifts, terrain parks, and glade skiing, as well as a learning ski area and 6 restaurants. The area also has miles of cross country ski trails either in the back country or at ski centers where equipment can be rented. Plus, the gondola also runs in the summer!

There's lots to see and do over at Lake Placid just 10 miles away, from golf courses, dining and shopping to Olympic venues and hiking. You'll find more hiking trails in the High Peaks, located 16 miles away in Keene Valley, and even more hiking 22 miles away in the artsy town of Saranac Lake. If you're traveling with children, be sure to stop by Santa's Workshop at the North Pole, New York, which is located about 1.5 miles from the house and open almost year-round. For fine dining, you'll find several good restaurants in Wilmington and Lake Placid, which also has a movie theatre for your entertainment. There's a ton of art in the area of all kinds, including performing art, and you'll love being able to get fresh, home-grown food at the area's local farms. There are often open houses for the farms and artist studios, so you can experience the warm, vibrant culture of this charming community first-hand. However you choose to spend your time here and no matter what season you plan to visit, this sensational Wilmington vacation rental house will not disappoint - you may never want to leave!

Lovely Summer Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great weekend with our family here. The cabin was lovely and in such a beautiful, scenic area. It was nice to be in nature, but still within 15 minutes of Lake Placid. The owners were great to communicate with and provided everything we needed for a great stay. On top of that, they even contacted us regarding an item we left and mailed it to us on their dime. Thanks for a great stay! We would gladly come back!

Lovely property in beautiful Wilmington NY

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here, lots of room, beautiful house on a very private spacious lot nestle in the woods. The stars we truly amazing at night. There were extra blankets and towels for us and plenty of room for our big family. The only 2 things I would alert anyone too is that the noise dose echo in the house and people walking upstairs sure do make a lot of noise for sleepers downstairs. Also, there were no curtains in this home. Not a single one. So be sure to bring an eye mask if you are sensitive to light in the morning. It was actually nice for some us to be awakened by the light but others like to sleep in and found it hard to do so. The owners were very helpful and sent us a lot of information about the area, things to do, and places to visit. It was overall a fantastic experience and I would highly recommend this spot for anyone looking for the perfect getaway in upstate NY

Great location but challenges made it less than a perfect stay.

  • 3 of 5

First the great things: The house is beautiful in a great location. The front porch and grounds were wonderful. We sat and listen to the birds every morning and we even had a visit from a couple of deer and hummingbirds. We really enjoyed listening to the sounds of the brook that runs past the house.

Now the challenges: The TVs in the home are old analog, tube TVs that have been adapted to receive digital over the air. That means two channels, one of which is a shopping channel. Forget bringing any devices (like a Chromecast or Firestick) that require HDMI. There's no connections to be found. You can bring your DVDs. There is player in the front room but plan to watch them on non-widescreen.

As for the kitchen, it did have the pots, pans and utensils we needed but several needed serious cleaning before we were comfortable using. The oven was another surprise. We arrived late and popped in a couple of frozen pizzas we bought coming in while we unpacked. Next thing we knew the kitchen was filled with smoke! We discovered that a prior guest had some sort of spill in the oven which caught fire. It burned off rather quickly but it did require opening all the windows to keep the smoke detectors from going off.

The next day we discovered a similar surprise in the gas grill. It caught fire when we pre-heated it as there was a lot of residue that wasn't cleaned up from prior uses. Fortunately, we had moved it out from the screened in porch before we lit it.

Of special note, none of the windows have any treatments, which isn’t a big privacy concern given the private, wooded location but don’t expect to sleep in past sunrise unless you bring a mask.

Lastly, we came home one evening to find that the DSL internet and the phones. We reached out to the “guest contact” Evoke Vacation Rentals had provided for us by both email and twice by phone but never received any reply or acknowledgement. After being without either for half a day we called the emergency number on the refrigerator. He was very nice and found out a truck pulled down a utility line by the post office in town. We can’t blame anyone for that but we were really disappointed by the lack of response from the guest contact.

So Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

The home was beautiful and immaculate! It's obviously well cared for. The kitchen has everything you need. We had a great time with four adults and four children. Plenty of room for everyone and the beds were very comfortable. The only suggestion I would make is to possibly provide fire pit seating? If not possible, make a note to bring camp chairs. I would also suggest cutting a better path to the mountain stream. Those are two very minor minor complaints and had little impact on our enjoyment. The location was perfect for activities we had planned and we will definitely return. Thank you!

Terrific house close to Whiteface, Lake Placid and Other Attractions

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I schedule regular winter trips to Lake Placid so we can ski Whiteface and this was the first time we stayed in Wilmington. The house accommodated 3 families, including adults and kids. There was plenty of space and it offered all the amenities we needed. It was super clean and comfortable (including the beds!) The kids loved playing outside in the backyard and near the stream despite the cold weather. They were constantly going out there...the house is literally down the road from Whiteface so we were able to get there quickly in the mornings to start our day. Lake Placid is also "down the road" about 20 minutes. We didn't mind the short drive as we spent most of our time at the house or mountain. Over our 5-day stay, we visited LP only once. We had plans to go again but the entire village of LP lost power on Saturday and it didn't get restored until late morning Sunday. Luckily we didn't lose any power in Wilmington :) The only issue we had was with the two coffee makers...seemed some had trouble with it. But it could've been user error. If you need and love your coffee, you may want to bring your own machine or Keurig...overall we loved the house and will definitely stay here again. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us!
