Jay House Rental Photos and Description

Top of the mountain privacy, 5 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, Hot Tub & Sauna

This spacious home sits up on the hill on twenty three acres to provide wonderful views of Ebenezer Mountain and the Sentinel Mountain Range. The view can be enjoyed from the 2,000 square foot wrap around deck and covered porch or from inside the home on all three levels through the abundant glass. The property has 550 feet of frontage on the East Branch of the Ausable River. Walk, hike, or cross country ski on the secluded and quiet property. More extensive hiking can be found in the surrounding High Peaks Region. We are six miles from Whiteface Mountain Ski area so you can be on the slopes in minutes. Lake Placid and the Olympic Village are just a nineteen mile ride where you can find many shops, restaurants, and activities. 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. The kitchen has green Shaker style cabinets with granite counter tops and stainless appliances and is stocked with all the cookware and settings you need. Also located on the main floor is the master bedroom suite with a king size bed and a walk in closet. The master bath has a whirlpool tub and a walk in 8' x 4' shower with dual shower heads. There is also a half bath on the main floor. Upstairs there are two bedrooms with queen beds and one bedroom with four single beds bunked. The second floor also has two full baths and a large loft area with a full size bed. On the lower level there is a fifth bedroom with a queen bed, another full bath, a laundry room, and a very large rec room. The lower floor also has a sauna and walkout to hot tub!

Secluded Location and Spectacular Property

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a secluded location with a home that has everything you need to relax, this property is the perfect choice. The property offered spectacular views....we spent hours relaxing on the expansive deck watching the view of Ebenezer Mountain change from dawn to dusk. Evenings provided incredible opportunities for star gazing late into the night while listening to music through the outdoor sound system. We also enjoyed sitting by the outdoor fire pit. The owner was responsive and the home itself was well appointed. There were four of us and each had our own room and bathroom. The kitchen had everything you needed to prepare your meals, there were an assortment of games that we enjoyed. Due to poor AT&T signal, the wi-fii provided much needed connectivity in all areas of the house and into the yard. Highly recommended!

Great Location, Property, and Owner!

  • 5 of 5

Was very impressed with the layout and location of the property. Lots of amenities (ample cookware and appliances, a spacious hot tub, very nice sauna), and the house has lots of high tech for the A/V savvy (outdoor speakers, multiple TVs, lots of hookups and connections for any A/V equipment you'd want to bring). I was also EXTREMELY impressed by the fact that the owner had taken the time to distribute Wi-Fi repeaters throughout the house, which allowed connectivity even as far as halfway out into the yard. VERY convenient considering that cellular service was limited.

Owner is very prompt and thorough in communication, checked in with us occasionally to see if there was anything we needed, and responded within minutes when we had a question for him during the stay. Highly, HIGHLY recommended.

Spacious and Gracious

  • 4 of 5

For 3 years in a row we have enjoyed this spacious home and the views it has to offer during the summer. Hikes through the woods to be greeted by the Ausable River, bike rides/drives into Wilmington, Keene, Lake Placid and Mirror Lake. The balance of feeling 'away from it all' with plenty to do right at the house/property while activities are easily accessible a short distance away. This house is always clean, offers a variety of amenities yet you have the flexibility to CHOOSE your upgrades rather than an all inclusive price. Mr. Gene continues to be gracious, responsive to any questions or problems and focused on renter needs/preferences. We have especially appreciated the ability to take pets on vacation for a fee that is much less than kennel or pet sitter. GOING BACK AGAIN!!!

Gene, the owner, is the best!

  • 5 of 5

What a great vacation for our family! This house was perfect for the 7 adults and 7 kids.

The house has everything you'll need for a perfect stay. We thought we might get a bit warm in July with only one upstairs A/C unit, but we were comfortable the whole time. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook several meals while we were there too. (What a timesaver over trying to find seating at a restaurant for 14 people!!) Can't imagine having stayed in separate hotel rooms. So much less fun!

Gene takes care of his renters. We had our hamburgers ready to put on the grill one evening and the propane tank ran out of gas before we could cook. One message to Gene and we had propane within a few minutes! We even saved a burger for Gene! Too bad he couldn't join us.

The house is centrally located for those who want to visit Lake Placid to the South and Whiteface Mountain, Ausable Chasm, and Canada to the North. We never felt like it was too far out of the way. There are not many large grocery stores nearby, but Lake Placid is only 20 minutes away for your major shopping. There are some small convenience type grocery stores closer, but you'll pay a bit more.

The kids loved having space outside to play and trails to explore. They also enjoyed the Ping Pong table and Xbox in the basement. At night, we loved gathering everyone around the TV in the main living area to watch photos from each day's activities. The bedrooms were all comfortable and plenty of closet space for storing your clothes during your stay. The showers were warm and we had all the towels we needed through the week. A couple of the families were able to take clean clothes home by using the washer/dryer the night before we left.

You won't be disappointed with this property or the owner. Great job Gene!

An Excellent Family Get-Away Experience!

  • 5 of 5

The Eb Lodge was everything we had hoped for and the website photos represented the lodge accurately. With housing 15 people (8 adults and 7 children, the oldest being 4 yrs. old), there was plenty of room and the kitchen/dining room could handle everyone at the same time. When a question arose about an item at the lodge, the owner was very responsive in a very timely manner. And when a sink drain became clogged, the property caretaker was there in a timely manner to address the problem and answer any questions we had. The location of the lodge was very convenient to grocery stores and the many other attractions in the Adirondack region. We also enjoyed the hike down to the Au Sable River which is very near the lodge. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in a very modern, up-to-date lodge with the usage of the WiFi, large flat screen televisions, game room and hot tub. I would highly recommend this rental.

Well Appointed But...

  • 3 of 5

We have loved the five bathrooms, the expansive porch, the abundance of beds and bedrooms, the game room, the location, the grounds, and the attentiveness of the owner, but for the high weekly rental, it needs sprucing up: refrigerator missing shelves, bathroom fixtures falling off walls, low quality, uncomfortable linens, steep, rutted driveway (4x4 almost a must), blocked views because of large trees that could be removed, jacuzzi water chlorinated to the point that breathing is difficult, porch deck peeling badly, porch railings collapsing, and the porch steps missing in places. We have enjoyed our stays and found the owner very responsive to our immediate needs and occasional emergency (water pressure died last year), but we are moving on.

Owner's Response: Peter, it is disappointing that you found the secluded lodge not meeting your expectatations. After more than sixty 5 star reviews from other travelers, I wish I had known about your concerns during your stay so they could have been validated and immediately addressed - I find it odd that none of them are mentioned by other recent and happy guests pre and post your stay. All the best, Gene
