Riverside mountain views!

Upper Jay, nestled between the shores of the impressive Ausable River and the towering Adirondack Mountains, is located just minutes from Whiteface Mountain. Fly fishermen flock to the Ausable River each year to cast their flies in search of an award-winning catch. Cyclists enjoy the variety of winding scenic flats mixed with challenging mountain terrain. Hikers can choose from countless trails ranging in difficulty from beginner to advanced, and from afternoon treks to week-long adventures. Cold-weather enthusiasts have chosen the right place - from skiing and riding at Whiteface Mountain to sledding, snowshoeing, and ice skating - the possibilities are overwhelming!

Stop by the Sugar House Creamery and stock up on farm-fresh milk by the jug, a delicious assortment of cheeses, baked goods, and other seasonal treats. The kids will love an up close look at the cows, and if you feel like extending your stay - there are two bed and breakfasts onsite. Catch a show at the Recovery Lounge - from music to plays, readings to artwork, this little gem stitches together great entertainment on a regular basis.
