Our property portfolio includes an authentic Adirondack log lodge-style home sited on a hilltop near Lake Placid's ski jumps, overlooking Whiteface Mt and panoramic forest views with no other houses in sight.  The views and seeming remoteness of this gem of a property is amazing considering how close we are to the center of Adirondack outdoor activities and Adirondack life in Lake Placid village.  It's brand new and just opened for guests July 2019! This fine log home has 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths, spread over 3 levels of living, with ample outdoor living areas of bedroom walkout balcony, large decks, and covered porches, helping to keep a close connection to nature both inside and outside the house.  Hilltop privacy, epic mountain views, luxury log home living all located on a quite county road used by Olympic athletes for training runs and all the big annual racing events, and located 3 minutes to Olympic Ski Jumps, 5 minutes to Lake Placid, 10 minutes to High Peaks trailheads, 9 minutes to Whiteface Mt ski area, 1 minute to Ausable River fly fishing.  This large and luxurious lodge-style home is perfect for groups of friends or families traveling together, yet also pricing is dynamic enough to also entice couples and small families to enjoy this Adirondack architectural masterpiece.   Our second property is an Adirondack-style log chalet located on the Ausable River with mountain views of Whiteface.   Enjoy the Adirondacks based out of this perfect log chalet with rustic charm, views, and peacefulness, located a minute away from Wilmington town center and 5 minutes away from Whiteface Mt Olympic ski area.  This 2 bedroom log home features beautiful real, round log exterior walls, cedar and pine ceilings, hardwood floors, and large log beams, with a huge 12'x24' ft exterior deck overlooking the Ausable River, and a master bedroom balcony over cedar logs, with direct views of Whiteface Mt and the Wilmingon Range. This new log home was lovingly built in 2013 by life-long Adirondack resident and owner and Johnathan Esper, with meticulous attention to log design born from the owner's fond memories of growing up in a log home. The log house is set amid some towering white pines on the steep river bank, with the sounds of the West Branch of the Ausable River, or the wind through the pines from atop the cedar balcony, being the only thing one hears from the house, despite being located most conveniently only 30 seconds to the center of the small town of Wilmington and it's various shops.

5/5...A home with a view that can’t be beat

We enjoyed every moment of our stay at this Lake Placid home. Johnathan was a wonderful host who responded promptly to each question prior to and after booking. The home was well equipped with anything you might need from the kitchen to the basement game room, as well as equipment for the kayaks/canoes. There was plenty of room for our group, consisting of three families and a dog. The living space is spacious with plenty of beds. The kids loved the downstairs bunk area and game room. The views from the outdoor deck cannot be matched. Perfect for a morning cup of coffee or evening nightcap. There was plenty of firewood available for our nightly campfires. The views of the night sky were amazing too. The location is perfect whether climbing a peak, visiting the Olympic sites , or taking a stroll through town. Thanks for a wonderful stay. We hope to be back again next summer!

5/5....Peaceful, relaxing, and scenic getaway in the Adirondacks

I learned about this Adirondack cabin rental while I was corresponding with Jonathan after I inquired about purchasing a few of his stunning Adirondack landscape photographs. One of them I had framed and hung up in my home office and it provides me a sense of peace and motivation each day. I've been coming to the Adirondacks for 30 years and one of my favorite memories was vacationing in a log cabin on the East Ausable River with my grandparents. For decades, I've longed to re-experience a log cabin getaway in the Adirondacks. After several years of camping and staying in hotels with my wife in the Adirondacks, I decided to treat her to a week long getaway at this highly rated log cabin in Wilmington overlooking the West Ausable River and looking out toward the serene Wilmington Range. Simply put, Jonathan's property exceeded our expectations. The views were stunning. The sound of the river was peaceful and soothing; never once having to raise our voices to hold a conversation on the balconies. I was impressed by the depth of the river's water compared to what I'm used to on the East Ausable during mid-summer. As for the cabin, I loved the quality of the construction, brightness of the interior wood color, calm lightning, use of exterior space with balconies that offered outstanding views, and incorporation of numerous windows for great ventilation and a cool night's rest. The cabin was very clean, had modern appliances, a nice gas barbecue grill, and free access to streaming movies via programs such as Netflix. When you're not in the mood to read, access to a good movie is a luxury while vacationing in the mountains. A strong WiFi signal provided came in handy while researching hikes or local dining options. The cabin is a short drive to some excellent options. This past week at Jonathan's log cabin was so peaceful and relaxing, it has reaffirmed my wife and I's desire to have a home of our own in the Adirondacks. This stay enabled us to reconnect with nature, easily access outdoor recreation, and return "home" to a peaceful environment. Anyone looking to slow down, escape work, and recalibrate themselves should find this lovely cabin to be an exceptional destination in the Adirondack Park. Treat it with care. It's a very special property.
