Rustic-but-comfortable cabin on 40 largely-wooded acres at 1600' elevation in the secluded "Glen" of Jay, NY at the edge of the Adirondack "High Peaks." Fully furnished. Sleeps 6 - 10 (depending on how chummy you are). Within easy driving distance of "High Peaks" trailheads, skiing at Whiteface Mountain, and civilization in Lake Placid. Perfect for hikers, honeymooners, fishermen, families, fans of Olympic sports, skiers, watercolorists, nudists, and escaped convicts avoiding recapture.

HERE'S WHAT YOU'LL GET: tons of privacy; the sound of the wind and the leaves; wrap-around deck with hammock, "Adirondack" chairs and a Million Dollar view; big meadow full of berries with hiking and XC skiing right out the door; screened-in back porch (furnished in season); charcoal/wood grill; living room with comfy furniture, cool taxidermy, floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace and wood-burning stove (wood provided); 47" flatscreen digital TV for playing DVD's; DVD player; a plethora of DVD's; new iHome; old iHome; boombox with assortment of cds (or bring your own); complete kitchen & eating area with all necessary implements of destruction (including a dishwasher once you arrive); 1 full bathroom; 1 half bath; 3 bedrooms; stone-ringed fire pit for roasting marshmallows or obtaining information the hard way.

THERE'S LOADS OF WILDLIFE. Spotted on or near the premises: moose; deer; bears; wolves; coyotes; porcupines; foxes; hawks; owls; hikers; wild turkeys; bats; humming birds; rabbits; red squirrels; chipmunks; and that gigantic moth with the graveyard stare.

STUFF TO DO: Go swimming by the historic covered bridge in Jay, NY (voted "America's Best Swimming Hole" by some swanky women's magazine). Fish the nearby Ausable River. Climb one of the nearby 46 "High Peaks," or climb Mt. Jay across the street. Eat, shop, and wander about Lake Placid (17.7 road miles away). Ski Whiteface Mountain (9.5 road miles away). Buy a to-die-for pie at the Noonmark Diner in Keene Valley, or gather berries in the field and bake your own pie. Take the Lake Champlain Ferry over to Burlington, VT for the day. Take the kiddies to "North Pole, NY" (America's first amusement park) to see Santa's Workshop. Melt in one of our "Adirondack" chairs and sip your poison of choice. Lie in the hammock after dark and play "Spot the Satellites." Marvel at The Milky Way. Get a full body tan without getting arrested. Learn your children's names. Finish a thought for a change.

CREATURE COMFORTS: The cabin is rustic but comfortable like an Adirondack camp should be. But don't worry because you'll have almost everything a 20th Century American required, plus a good deal more: cushions; heat; electricity; flush toilets; running water [including hot!]; big-screen TV; sleeping surfaces off the floor; i.e., you won't have to cook in a cauldron over an open fire unless that's your idea of a good time. But just so you know, the furniture is not new and the forks don't match. OH! And there are no ridiculous anachronisms: no recessed lighting; no heated towel racks; no mauve wallpaper trim. THIS IS A CABIN IN THE ADIRONDACKS. If the price and sterility of a Lake Placid condo is not your thing, then look no further because you just found Nirvana AND Utopia AND Heaven on 40 acres. You bring the chocolates.

C'MON! IT'LL BE FUN! You probably won't die, and you'll feel like you actually went someplace on vacation.


Jeff from Oswego, NY:
"Our stay was great! Thanks so much for everything you did for me, especially how quickly you were able to get us into your cabin. The place is beautiful! I like how removed it is from Lake 'Plastic' and Keene Valley. The views were spectacular, and I think we even saw a coyote or wolf in the meadow our first day there. My wife was so surprised. I had her convinced we were going camping in a tent, and when we got to your cabin, she was quite confused. She was literally speechless for the first hour or so, with the exception of, 'Are you serious? I can't believe this.' We loved the decor as well as the Adirondack reading. We are convinced your cabin would be a great place to stay again and again. Your rates were incredibly fair, and thanks again for that. And thanks for the security deposit. In the past I have had some sketchy vacation landlords really sock me with 'cleaning fees.' I'm happy you weren't one of them."

Sophie & Justin from Montreal ("regular Canadian tenants that are delighted!"):
"Best start for summer! Thanks again for giving us the opportunity to stay at your cabin. As every stay we were pampered by the surrounding nature! The site is still as enchanting and peaceful, and the cabin so rallying! Each season is full of surprises, and now we can say we have tried many! Wild strawberries at the end of spring, blueberries and mushrooms during summer, fireflies at night, beautiful Ausable River down the hill (best swimming/playing area our kids ever had!), mushrooms again during fall, cross-country skiing directly from the cabin during winter, stars, stars, stars all year round! And after all these discoveries and activities, what a pleasure to go back to the cozy ambiance of this cabin, in front of a fire playing games or having a grilled marshmallow. As you very well describe, we feel alone and surrounded by nature. And it's true: the view 'kills' you. No doubt we will continue to come!"

Josephine from Tarrytown, NY:
"We had an amazing time--the place was absolutely perfect for our two families. I picked lots of delicious blackberries, the children played in the pine grove, we had fires in the fire circle and cooked hot dogs and s'mores, everyone took lovely naps, and we grilled on the BBQ. We also found great places to swim and hike in the area, including Jay Mountain just down the road as you mentioned. All in all we were thrilled and dream about coming back already."

Adam from Baldwin, NY:
"The camp was probably the nicest vacation place I can remember. You found one of the best spots in the region."

Chris from Ohio:
"Your place and price was a real deal and so comfortable and enjoyable. Can't say enough good things to describe our experience there!"

Kirk & Karen from Avon, NY:
"The place was perfect for us. A warm place to dry out and have a few beers after a day of playing in the snow. Thanks."

John & Cathy from Cleveland, OH:
"We loved the view from the deck ... out over the meadow to the mountains during the day, and upwards to the stars at night! The fireplace was great. A very special place on the planet!"

Pete from Ulster Park, NY:
"The views from the porch are spectacular, and there are lots of great things to do in the area. In one weekend we fit in snowshoeing at 'The Garden' in Keene Valley, XC skiing at 'The Cascades' and Mt. Van Hoevenberg, and toboggan runs in the backyard. The camp is comfortable and simple with plenty of back woods charm."

Zoe & Tom from Buffalo, NY:
"We all had an absolutely wonderful time at the cabin! Thanks for providing us with a cozy, friendly, and lovely place to spend Thanksgiving with family and friends."

Lynn from Vermont:
"...comfortable beds...excellent cooking facilities...ample living room. We're already talking about next year's trip."

Ruben from Plattsburgh, NY:
"I appreciate your working with me in making our 23rd anniversary our best ever."

Michelle from Texas:
"It was just as you described - just like home; comfortable. The setting is perfect: private and absolutely beautiful!"

Pat from Plattsburgh, NY:
"The photos of the inside don't do it justice ... the warmth just doesn't translate into pictures."

John, Nola & Jordan from Australia:
"We were totally taken by our stay! We absolutely loved it! I can't imagine a better place to stay in the Adirondacks."

Jim from Vermont:
"My college friends and I get together every winter for a weekend getaway. This winter's was our best yet. We had planned to rent a place and hit the slopes all day, but ended up staying at the cabin reminiscing in front of a roaring fire most of the weekend. We found a world-class snowshoe trail about 300 feet from your front door, and did some XC skiing in the field with its view of the High Peaks."

Wolfgang & Birgit from Wilmington, DE:
"We enjoyed every minute of our vacation. Our first thought after arriving was, 'Yes, that's what we wanted, everything done right! High Five!' Your description on the website is pretty accurate, so there were no surprises at all. We especially liked the secluded location and the coziness of the cottage. We also liked that you took care of linens and towels, which meant to us, 'Just come in and start your vacation!'"

Rachel from Nashville:
"This place is GREAT for runners."
