Rivers, lakes, and streams can be found in every direction to enjoy boating, fishing, canoeing, or swimming. Back at the house there is plenty of room to relax with over 4200 sq. feet of living space without a neighbor in sight. The home features a great room on the main floor with twenty six foot high ceilings and a full glass front to let in the view. A center fireplace with a large stone chimney is the only divide between the great room, dining room, kitchen, and foyer to provide a spacious gathering area with plenty of seating.

Beautiful property with a great location that was well equipped to meet our needs.

  • 5 of 5

Overall, our stay at Ebs View Lodge was excellent. Ours was a summer family vacation planned between three families with young children. The home was well suited for indoor and outdoor fun, and was plenty large to fit our families. The kids loved the small trek down to the river, playing in the lawn, or in the game room, and the fact that they could almost all stay in one bedroom. We made nearly all meals during our stay right in the kitchen or on the grill.

Communication with the owner was easy. He responded within minutes to any questions. We had only one small issue with the hot tub after a storm, but the caretaker responded to the problem within the hour and the situation was quickly resolved.

The location of this property is excellent also. Whiteface Mountain, Lake Placid and many hiking trail heads are within just a few miles.

Great for reunions

  • 4 of 5

Ebs View Lodge was a great location for our family reunion week. The lodge is very clean and well-appointed, and the owner was incredibly responsive with any issues that arose (thanks, Gene!). We loved the secluded setting, though we wished it was closer to a swimmable part of river; you can hike down to the river's edge but it's too fast there for kids to swim. The best swimming we had was at the covered bridge swimming hole in Jay and Everest Lake beach in Wilmington. The nearest full grocery store is at least 20 minutes away, so plan to do your shopping all at once or when you are going into Lake Placid for the day.

It's probably beautiful and cozy in the winter. You'll want a four-wheel-drive vehicle, though--even in the summer, one of our cars had trouble getting up the last incline of the driveway after a rain.

Overall, a really comfortable, kid-friendly place!

Very private with nice views in a great house

  • 5 of 5

This is an awesome home and my family, and extended family, really enjoyed ourselves. From the game room to the fire pit to the sauna and hot tub there was plenty do each day and evening. The owner was very attentive and even checked in via text during our stay. He was very accessible and eager to ensure we had a great stay.

Great Getaway for Family Fun!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with extended family and had the BEST time! The kids had the whole basement to play ping pong, air hockey, board games and Guitar Hero after our daily excursions while the adults could relax on the beautiful wrap around deck. We were able to prepare all our meals in the gourmet kitchen-every amenity imaginable was there for our use and with our large group we especially appreciated two coffee pots in the morning!

If you are looking for a family friendly location, this is a great choice! We had 4 kids with us aged 10-13 and 6 adults- here's the list of things we loved:

-Wilmington Beach- about 5-10 minutes away. Easy access, free parking and beautiful setting, highly recommend renting kayaks/paddle boards $10hr/$15 for 2hr. We loved it so much we went twice.

-High Falls Gorge-about 10 minutes away. I thought the admission was slightly pricey at $11 per adult but well worth it! We had my father with us and it was the perfect distance for him to see the beautiful gorges and waterfalls without having to hike on uneven surface. The kids loved it too and we got some great photos.

-Ausable Chasm-about 30 minutes away. MUST DO! We paid the extra $20 for the adventure trail and had the time of our lives! After our adventure we enjoyed a tube ride through the gorge. Spectacular natural beauty! Lunch in the cafe is reasonably priced as well.

-Jay Swimming Hole-had fun here one afternoon, climbing rocks and swimming-water is crystal clear!

-Whiteface Mountain: we drove up Memorial Highway then hike to the top-awesome views and the kids loved it. Also did the Gondola ride up Little Whiteface which we also loved but if you had to choose go for drive!

-On a rainy afternoon we had fun at Bowl Winkles

bowling in Lake Placid-the guys enjoyed the in site pub while the kids bowled and and played arcade games.

-Lake Placid is is about 30 minutes away but it goes fast with on the scenic ride. So much to do there!

Highly recommend!

EBS view lodge was perfect.

Lodge was everything we were looking for. Comfortably housed our party of 12. All the amentities meant there was always something to do. Lots of privacy but close to all the surrounding activities. Would definitely go back again. Highly reccomended

Private and Breathtaking

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for a 50th birthday/family reunion. The property had an amazing impact on the overall experience of all our friends and family members. We took advantage of all the amenities (HotTub, Sauna, Ping Ping,Foosball table to name a few) and the beds were clean and comfortable.

It's centrally located and with 20 minutes from everywhere. We hiked, walked around Lake Placid and visited Ausable Chasm.

We will definitely be reserving this property in the near future.
