The space
Covid-19 info: my home is open to responsible guests wanting to enjoy the open spaces, uncrowded trails, streams and rivers, and fresh air that the Adirondacks has to offer.  Enhanced cleaning protocols are followed between each set of guests. All guests must meet certain criteria in order to be eligible to book and stay here. This includes a blacklist of all persons coming from certain worse affected states (in keeping with NY state orders), responsible behavior leading up to your stay and staying healthy, and during your stay. Full details will be sent when you make an inquiry as to your eligibility to stay. These Covid policies are for all guests', housekeepers', and community's safety.
House Information:
The first floor of the house follows an open floor plan concept with kitchen, dining, and living rooms, plus a full bath and laundry room and bedroom with queen bed. Enjoy the cozy gas fireplace with real flames, while looking out the window toward the Wilmington Range. Radiant in-floor heating throughout the house also provides warmth and coziness, and in the hotter summer months, the natural thermal properties of logs keep the house cool, along with french bi-fold doors opening onto the deck for fresh air. The kitchen is fully equipped for you to make lovely meals if you so wish, with brand new stainless-steel appliances. Upstairs is the master suite area including loft and bath. The bedroom featuring a walkout balcony accessed via french doors, and mountain views from the queen size bed. The upstairs bathroom is entirely of slate tile and red cedar, with a large jacuzzi hot-tub, glass shower, and dual flush European style toilet. There is a large loft area, which can enjoyed as a lounging area for the master suite, or desk working area, or kids sleeping area with a comfy new futon that can lay out flat for children.

Exterior of the house features a huge deck, with Adirondack cedar chairs, overlooking the Ausable River, A BBQ grill for your use, kayaks for guests use on nearby ponds, and a firepit with plenty of Free Firewood to burn! (You must read and agree to the house rules regarding water and fire safety if using these amenities.) (Always wear life jackets when using boats, and when making campfires always keep your fire under control, not too big, and never leave unattended)

Just built in the fall of 2013, this home was lovingly built by life-long Adirondack resident and owner Johnathan Esper, with meticulous attention to log design born from the owner's fond memories of growing up in a log home. The log house is built overlooking the Ausable River, set amid some towering white pines on the steep river bank, set well back from the road frontage.

Guest access
This charming log chalet-style home is the perfect size for a week or weekend getaway to the Adirondack Mountains, and you'll feel you're in the Adirondacks whether at this home, or out enjoying the Adirondack region. The world class town of Lake Placid is just 15 minutes away, with fine dining and shopping, and it's the heart of the Adirondack High Peaks with the best access for hiking. Keene Valley, a hiker's destination, is also just 15 minutes away. And of course, Whiteface Mt ski area is just up the road 5 minutes away. The Ausable River is world famous for its fly fishing, and you can even enjoy your private fishing area on the bank in front of your vacation home. Wilmington is really located in a great area of the Adirondacks - it's the ski and mountain biking capital of the Adirondacks, and 15 minutes away from the best hiking in New York State.
