Year Round Quality of Life - Close to Everything
WELCOME TO NEW YORK'S BEST KEPT SECRET!
Visit the Whiteface Region and you'll understand why we live here — there's no place quite like it. Surrounded by the Adirondack High Peaks, the area's beautiful mountainous terrain paired with its delightful people and refreshing simplicity, make it an ideal place to live. Our charming communities of Wilmington and Jay retain the rugged authenticity that you'd expect from a mountain town.
If you're considering relocating to the area, deliberate no more. The region offers endless opportunity for outdoor activities from skiing and snowboarding at Whiteface Mountain, to snowshoeing backcountry trails. In the warmer months enjoy fishing, boating, biking and swimming! We have shopping and cozy restaurants, and an array of businesses and services. Best of all, we have genuine people who love the area as much as we do.
Home of Whiteface Mountain, Wilmington offers the opportunity to get away from it all and still have everything. Known as Lake Placid's Little Next Door Neighbor, Wilmington is located just minutes away from bustling Lake Placid Village. It's the perfect choice for comfortable and affordable accommodations, direct access to many of the Adirondacks' recreational activities and attractions, and a location famous for its peaceful, quiet and pristine environment. We have lots to do here ... and most of it doesn't involve traffic lights, parking meters or crowds.
Close to every place in town is the Whiteface Mountain Ski Resort, the West Branch of the Ausable River, High Falls Gorge, Whiteface Mountain's Veteran's Memorial Highway or Gondola Ride, and world famous Santa's Workshop — one of America's oldest theme parks and a true national treasure! If you like to fish, swim, canoe, hike, bike, golf, run, ski, camp, play, climb, gaze, dine, laugh or just chill out a bit, you'll love staying in the Wilmington area!
Home of the Covered Bridge! Settled in the late 1797, Jay holds onto its humble beginnings and remains a charming Adirondack town known for scenic vistas and picturesque landscapes. Similar to Wilmington, Jay offers a peaceful, quiet and pristine environment without the frills of touristy towns... such as parking meters or crowds.
Located close to Whiteface Mountain and Lake Placid, Jay offers all who visit the opportunity to relax and experience thrilling outdoor adventure any time of year. Featuring quaint shops, restaurants, art galleries and one of a kind attractions — a trip to Jay will be memorable for so many reasons.
