If Whiteface Mountain and The Ausable River are your destination, Whiteface Brookside Cottage in New York State's beautiful Whiteface region of the Adirondacks is the vacation home for your family. Whiteface Brookside Cottage features three bedrooms with queen size beds, a fourth bedroom with a bunk bed, a comfortable futon in the family room, two full baths, a large kitchen and dining area with dishwasher, range and oversized fridge, and a spacious living/family room with a brick fireplace, TV, DVD player, and CD player. The bunk room is a pass through to one of the others, ideal for the first to rise in the morning., or young people who sleep through anything.
Cozy up to a warm and crackling fire, reviewing the day's adventures on the slopes. House-trained, well socialized dogs are welcome at our Cottage, so bring your pup, and explore the area by foot for much of the year and snowshoes or cross-country skis in winter. A number of beautiful Adirondack trails can be found along the route to Lake Placid and beyond.
Lake Placid is just ten miles away, with its unique combination of great restaurants and shopping, along with skating on the Olympic Oval, roaring down the Olympic Bobsled track, visiting the Olympic Ski Jumps or the site of the 1980 American Olympic Hockey victory over the Soviet Union. Don't feel like driving or preparing the evening meal yourself? Walk down the hill to the Wilderness Inn, a great local restaurant.
Summers find you minutes from mountain-biking and gondola rides at the Whiteface Mountain ski center, or a drive up the Veterans Memorial Highway to the top of Whiteface Mountain, where you can photograph Lake Champlain, the Green Mountains of Vermont, and all the High Peaks of the Adirondacks. In fact, you're not only on the Lake Placid Ironman biking route, but great hiking and biking is all around you, and you're only about a half mile from the sandy beach on Lake Everest, or kayaking on the Ausable River. Golfing surrounded by gorgeous views of the High Peaks is nearby, or if you need a day off, bird watch, grab lunch or compose the great American novel, while relaxing on the spacious front porch. The kids will enjoy an evening around the campfire, while they roast marshmallows, and listen to the wildlife sounds of an Adirondack evening.
The High Peaks towns of Wilmington, Jay and Lake Placid offer nightly summer activities for young and old alike, everything from plays, concerts and art exhibits to fireworks and blue-grass/rock and country bands under the stars.
Brookside Cottage will rent in July and August only from Saturday to Saturday, while there is a three night minimum stay the rest of the year.
Formed by the damming of the West Branch of the Ausable River, at the bridge in Wilmington, Lake Everest has a public beach in the Whiteface Region's quaint host town of Wilmington, less than a mile from Brookside Cottage. The Park at Lake Everest provides a great place for younger kids who want to play in and around the water on a sandy bottom. At Lake Everest you can launch canoes and kayaks, fish for the famous Ausable River brown and rainbow trout, play volleyball, or just picnic under the lovely cedars that cluster around the shore. Lake Everest has restrooms, barbecue pits, and country/ rock/ folk concerts every Thursday Evening in July and August.
Brookside Cottage has a local caretaker, who provides plowing service in the winter, and can recommend hikes, biking courses, fishing locations, restaurants and other activities.
Considerable improvements of late.
