I recently stayed at "look out mountain" chalet. I have been skiing my entire life and have rented many mountain homes. This home was exceptionally clean and had every amenity available. The incredibly large windows really brought the inside in with sweeping views of Whiteface mountain. The decor and attention to detail is evident throughout the entire house. No expense was spared inside and out. The house is just a few minutes from the mountain and is a perfect vacation retreat.

My husband and I have booked this property for the second time for our kids to experience a White Christmas.

The views from the back of the house are amazing. We travel from Florida and we just love the location in Wilmington.

We are thinking about doing a trip in the summer or fall. Owner is very nice, Todd (owner) makes sure everything is to our standards.

This stunning vacation home is situated in Wilmington, NY, in the heart of the 6 million acre Adirondack Park.

Wilmington is nestled in the valley of the West Branch of the AuSable River and is home of Whiteface Mountain, site of the 1980 Winter Olympics and where today's top athletes from around the world train and compete.

Whiteface summit, with its unparalleled view, is accessible by Whiteface Veteran's Memorial Highway, which originates in downtown Wilmington, a 2-minute drive from the home. A visit to the Adirondacks is not complete without a drive to the top! After all, how many other roads lead directly to the summit of a mountain, with gorgeous views spanning hundreds of miles of wild land reaching as far as Vermont and Canada? Nowhere else is the beauty and vastness of the Adirondack Park so evident and easily accessible.

Most of Wilmington is state forest preserve, offering rugged wilderness beauty with access to hiking and mountain biking trails in summer and downhill and cross country skiing, snow shoeing and snowmobile trails in winter. The West Branch of the AuSable River is internationally renown for trout fishing.

Just a 5-minute drive from the home is Whiteface Mountain ski resort. Boasting over 283 acres of skiable terrain, 86 trails and 11 lifts, Whiteface Mountain has the greatest vertical drop east of the Rockies and features diverse terrain for beginner skiers and snow boarders, expert glades and slides for the advanced and loads of trails for everyone in between! The longest run is the 2.1 mile 'Wilmington Trail' and total skiing/boarding stretches over 22 miles. Whiteface Mountain is truly fun for everyone! In summer, Whiteface offers splendid views, gondola rides, mountain biking, 4x4 expeditions, extreme tubing and more.

Wilmington is also home to picturesque and swimmable Everest Beach, with SUP and kayak rental, BBQ pits, wooded nature trail and live music throughout summer. The town also has restaurants, a general store, mini golf and other conveniences for visitors.

Lake Placid is a beautiful 20-30 minute drive from Wilmington along NYS Route 86. Wilmington Notch on the way is breathtaking and has been designated part of the Olympic Scenic Byway. Hiking trailheads and beautiful High Falls Gorge are accessible right from the road!

Lake Placid is a charming, all-season resort town with a Main Street; unique, locally owned shops; loads of dining options; sporting and cultural events, movie theatre, mini golf and waterfront park where live music is featured weekly during summer. The town also has supermarkets, delis and other conveniences.

Your vacation home is situated in a prosperous community in the Adirondack Park proudly offering 4-seasons of fun and your choice of recreation, sport and cultural activities.

From your doorstep there are NYS-maintained hiking and biking trails, waterfalls, swimming and fishing spots and Everest Beach. We invite you to enjoy horseback riding, gondola rides, paddling, guided walks, hunting, rock climbing, white water rafting, mountain biking, boating, and a visit to Santa's workshop.

In Winter there are an incredible array of activities including: downhill and cross country skiing; ice skating; snowmobiling; winter trekking; snow shoeing; tobogganing; ice fishing; ice climbing; sleigh rides; bobsledding; ski jumping; viewing magnificent frozen water falls; and enjoying apres ski at dozens of restaurants/bars in Wilmington and Lake Placid.

When you're at home in the Chalet, soak in the spectacular view, enjoy our spacious deck, sooth aching muscles in the hot tub and dry sauna, curl up by the fire, BBQ and make memories with family and friends. Your vacation home has it all!

Need more ideas? There is so much to do in the Adirondacks that people return year after year!

Be sure to check out the Olympic Museum, located in the Olympic Center, only a few feet from the Herb Brooks Arena where the 1980 “Miracle on Ice” hockey game occurred and the Jack Shea Arena, home of the first indoor Winter Olympic skating arena. Explore the history and heritage of winter sports in Lake Placid - the first winter resort in the US - through artifacts, photographs and videos and visit the Olympic Center where athletes continue to train and compete daily.

Another must-see is The Wild Center, an incredible indoor/outdoor interactive museum with loads of amazing exhibits, including the Wild Walk trail through the tree tops!

Adirondack Scenic Railroad is a fun way for people of all ages and physical capacities to explore the Adirondack Park.

Take in a show at the Lake Placid Center for Arts. In its 42nd year and located just minutes from Lake Placid's Main Street the LPCA consistently presents arts of the highest caliber in music, dance and theatre performances, film exhibitions and visual arts presentations.

Come see for yourself why we can't stop raving about our fantastic resort community in the heart of the beautiful Adirondacks!
