Windows on Whiteface is a renovated c. 1900 four-bedroom home a mile from Whiteface and the AuSable River, with a mountain view and deck overlooking woods, a small pond and large yard. With country charm—an old-fashioned dining room for 10, a gas fireplace, and firepit for campfires—and modern conveniences—WiFi, cable with HBO, three TVs, DVD, two VCRs, dishwasher, washer and dryer. We have two full baths, one with jacuzzi jets, for soothing aches after hiking and biking. We're family- and pet-friendly, too. The town beach has a lifeguard, playground, picnic tables, fishing site, and easy access for canoes and kayaks—and a great view. Santa's Workshop is also nearby—with real reindeer and rides. A free wildlife preserve with two wolves, a bobcat, fox and birds of prey is just down the road from us. The Wilmington Wild Forest trails up to Whiteface, Flume Knob and Marble Mountain, and new trails off Hardy Road are less than a mile away. Trails to Coppernas Ponds and Whiteface Landing are nearby. If you prefer a mellower trip, ride the gondola at Whiteface Ski and Mountainbike Center, just over a mile away. Or drive up the Scenic Whiteface Highway for amazing views. You can take the elevator built in rock for President Roosevelt, or hike up stone stairs. Biking from the house along many scenic routes, you can follow the trail of the Ironman and other bike races in Wilmington. The dramatic AuSable Flume crashes through the rocks less than a mile away, or just fish in the AuSable River, a renowned trout stream. Canoing and kayaking on the river and many nearby lakes is a pleasure. Lake Placid village is nine miles away, a scenic drive through the AuSable notch. There you can visit the Olympic high ski jumps, freestyle pool, ice rink, museum and other venues. Sample the brew pubs, shop the outlets, go to the movies, struggle to find a parking spot, then come back to Wilmington to enjoy the quiet and the excellent (and often more affordable) restaurants here. Play Monopoly or Scrabble, pick a book from our small library, and just relax. Our summer rates are 15 percent off our winter rates; spring and fall rates are 20 percent off. And we always have specials. In winter, we offer great ski packages with savings on lift tickets. (Christmas and President's week excluded). A free shuttle to Whiteface runs nearby during ski season. The Adirondacks are beautiful in every season, and Windows on Whiteface is a cozy and convenient home-base to explore them.
