Adirondack-style log home and 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 log home of 1400 sq. ft 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 built almost over the Ausable River, set amid some towering white pines on the steep river bank, at the end of a 300ft driveway with the neighbors' houses set well away along the roadside frontage. The sounds of the West Branch of the Ausable River, or the wind through the pines from atop the cedar balcony, are 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. Exterior sofit lights cast spellbinding shadow patterns of the round log textures and cedar shake gables, making twilight a wonderful time to come home.

The first floor of the house follows an open floor plan concept with kitchen, dining, and living rooms, plus a full bath and laundry room and bedroom with one queen bed. Enjoy the cozy gas fireplace with real flames, while looking out the window toward the Wilmington Range. Radiant in-floor heating throughout the house also provides warmth and coziness, and in the hotter summer months, the natural thermal properties of logs keep the house cool, along with french bi-fold doors opening onto the deck for fresh air. The kitchen is fully equipped for you to make lovely meals if you so wish, with brand new stainless-steel appliances. Upstairs is the master suite area including loft and bath. The bedroom features a walkout balcony accessed via french doors, and mountain views from the queen bed. The upstairs bathroom is entirely of slate tile and red cedar, with a jacuzzi hot-tub, natural slate and glass shower, and dual flush European style toilet. There is an open loft and TV sitting room also featuring a twin bed, pull out futon, which can enjoyed as a lounging area for the master suite, or desk working area, or kids sleeping area with a comfy new futon that can lay out flat for children.

This charming log chalet-style home is the perfect size for a week or weekend getaway to the Adirondack Mountains, and you'll feel you're in the Adirondacks whether at this home, or out enjoying the Adirondack region. The world class town of Lake Placid is just 15 minutes away, with fine dining and shopping, and it's the heart of the Adirondack High Peaks with the best access for hiking. Keene Valley, a hiker's destination, is also just 15 minutes away. And of course, Whiteface Mt ski area is just up the road 5 minutes away. The Ausable River is world famous for its fly fishing, and you can even enjoy your private fishing area on the bank in front of your vacation home. Wilmington is really located in a great area of the Adirondacks - it's the ski and mountain biking capital of the Adirondacks, and 15 minutes away from the best hiking in New York State.

Exterior of the house features a huge deck, with Adirondack cedar chairs, overlooking the Ausable River, a BBQ grill for your use, canoes for guests use on nearby ponds (special-use clause section in house rental agreement applies), and a firepit with plenty of Free Firewood to burn! (always keep your fire under control, not too big, and never leave unattended).

Beautiful Property

My wife, 2 young daughters and I spent a few days at the cabin and absolutely loved it. The cabin itself is beautiful with a very warm, cozy feel. The location is very nice - tucked back from the road a bit and away from the neighboring homes. The back of the home overlooks a picturesque mountain view, which we enjoyed from the deck and balcony. We attended a wedding at Whiteface while we were here, which was just minutes from the cabin. Lake Placid was only a short, scenic drive away as well. Overall it was a great getaway and we're already brainstorming when we'll be able to come back next. 09/04/2019 at 1:40 AM

Great Cabin

We had a great time at the cabin. The location is perfect. It's outside the hustle of Lake Placid but only 10 minutes away. The view from the porch is breathtaking and listening to the running river is very peaceful. Johnathan made us feel right at home. We were very pleased with every aspect of the property. 08/19/2019 at 9:47 PM

Adirondack Adventures!

Beautiful property in perfect location! We started every morning with a hike and didn't even come close to experiencing the many, many wonderful trails in the area. Some of our other highlights were the trip up Whiteface Mountain, the Wildlife Refuge, High Gorge Falls, and the village of Lake Placid (Olympic Museum, shops, and restaurants). Highly recommend The Cottage for lunch on Mirror Lake and R.F. McDougal's for delicious food in an unbeatable setting. After a day spent outdoors, this charming log cabin welcomed us home. At night, we enjoyed turning out all the lights and marvelling at the stars we are not able to see in our section of suburbia. Absolutely stunning! Our puggle, Chloe, loved sitting under the outside tables at ADK Pizza and we appreciated how dog-friendly most of the establishments were. As a bonus, my husband caught a good sized trout on his first cast into the river at the bottom of the stairs! One of our best vacations ever!! 08/25/2019 at 11:54 PM

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. 07/13/2019 at 10:22 PM

Wonderful family vacation!

We stayed in this amazing cabin over the July 4th weekend. The heat of the day cooled down over night, and we found that keeping the windows open over night keeps the house comfortable during the day. The house was beautifully designed and kept very clean! The views off the back porch, and especially the balcony above, were spectacular! The house was fully stocked with cooking tools, ingredients, and even laundry detergent! We enjoyed the Wilmington Town Beach, which was only a 4 minute drive from the cabin, where we used the canoe. We also took a drive up to Whiteface Mt. and took the elevator to the summit, which was a highlight during this weekend. Overall, my husband, my in-laws, my two young sons, and I all enjoyed our stay, and would happily return. 07/12/2019 at 4:15 AM

Excellent Stay!

This cabin is beautiful and comfortable, and this is the second time we've stayed there. The location is perfect, private yet close to the trails, the river and and Lake Placid. Our dog loved every minute of the trip, he hiked with us and loved playing ball on the property. The cabin has every amenity you could need, we cooked in the entire stay so that we could enjoy our hikes and just relax afterward. We recommend it , and thank you for sharing your place! 08/03/2019 at 7:56 PM
