Warner’s Camp is a recently renovated, 1800's guesthouse. The house is located in the Adirondacks High Peaks area, directly adjacent to a freshwater river and swimming hole. Our cabin is perched so close to the river that you can hear and see it from nearly every room.

The house is only 10 minutes away from Whiteface Ski Resort, 25 minutes from Lake Placid, and 5 minutes from Keene.

Sleeping Arrangements

Warner’s Camp has three traditional bedrooms, plus a sunroom off the kitchen that doubles as a fourth bedroom, and a curtained off sleeping alcove near the living room that can be used as a private sleeping space. The master bedroom upstairs (Loft Bedroom) has a king bed. The second master bedroom (Green Bedroom) downstairs has a queen. The third bedroom (Map Bedroom) sleeps three with one double bed and one twin trundle. The fourth bedroom (Sunroom) and sleeping alcove (Alcove) each have a twin sleeper that can unfold into a queen bed. If coming with a large group, you are welcome to use the large sofa in the living room as an extra sleeping spot. The various sleeping arrangements offer a variety of options for your group, large or small. Please let us know in advance the amount of people coming, so that we can ensure enough linens are provided. 

Living Quarters

The living room sits in the oldest part of the home, featuring original exposed beams from the 1800’s and a wood burning stove. Firewood is provided, and your first fire is on us. This room is incredibly cozy in the winter, yet stays cool in the summer. The living room Roku TV is equipped with Netflix, Hulu, and other streaming services. In addition, we’ve stocked the cabin with technology classics: record player and rotary phone. Enjoy our record collection! The living room also has a writing desk, so you can plug in and get to work, or disconnect and write that novel.

The kitchen and dining room, which were added to the home in the 70’s, feature incredible river views via oversized windows. Watching the flowing river never gets old. We’ve updated the mid century kitchen with local black granite, marble accents, and brand new, retro style appliances (including a dishwasher and double ovens). The kitchen is fully stocked with whatever you might need to make a meal (waffle iron included). Make sure you try the local maple syrup.

Both bathrooms in the home are chock-full of character. The downstairs bath includes an antique clawfoot tub and shower. For your convenience, we have added a washer/dryer. The upstairs bath, recently installed, features a rustic galvanized bucket shower and classic tile finishes. Toiletries and linens are provided.

Outdoor Living

There is a screened in porch located off the the living room that juts out over the river. This is our favorite room in the home. Warner’s Camp also has two large front porches (great for watching the cyclers if a race is going on). The porch near the patio has a propane grill.

The riverview patio and beer garden is also very special place. Our gravel patio sits on top on a small cliff that looks over the Ausable River. We’ve lined the patio with large boulders. Enjoy the oversized picnic table and the fire pit surrounded Adirondack chairs. The fire pit is a great year round activity! We love crashing here with a beer in our snow gear after some early spring skiing.

Another great year round activity: our exterior barrel sauna! Fire up the stove and hop in for a steam after hiking, skiing, or swimming.

Our lot spans over 2 acres with 200 feet of water frontage. Walk down the paths towards the river and you’ll find a hammock suspended over the water, multiple sitting boulders, and finally, our (nearly) private swimming hole. Great for swimming, tubing, and fishing. The house comes equipped with four large inner tubes which you can use in our swimming hole, or take with you to another spot. Connect them to the large boulder in the center of the swimming hole and have yourself a lazy river party! Also a great solo activity.

Guest access
Full access to the house and riverfront property, aside from the barn.

Other things to note
>> To make our unique river property more accessible, we have made the decision to accept large groups in our home. We can sleep up to 12, but this puts one person on the sofa. We charge an extra nightly fee of $10 per person for each person after 6 people (Airbnb will add these fees on automatically before you book). We are happy to provide linens for up to 12 people, provided you tell us your group number in advance. If the sofa is not a suitable option for your group of 12, please consider a different property. Thank you!

>> Please ensure that all members of your group are made aware of our house rules. We expect you to return the property to us in the same condition in which you received it, aside from the bedding and towels, which we will turn over. You'll find our full checkout procedures printed in our guest guide. 

>> Our cleaners work hard to ensure the property is perfect for each group. Please respect their time by checking out promptly at 11am.

>> Please be mindful that this is a period home, rich in character. The staircase leading to the upper level (consisting of king bedroom and bathroom) is original and has a rather steep and narrow incline.

>> We are located in a somewhat remote area. The house is on Route 9N, a scenic state highway, and backs up to the Ausable River and miles of protected state parklands. You can see a couple neighboring homes from the front porch, while the river area out back feels very secluded. We love our location as we can quickly pop into town, but still have privacy.

>> Due to our location, cell service is spotty. Enable WiFi calling on your phone to make and receive calls. Our only option for Internet here is DSL. It usually works just fine for communication and entertainment streaming, but you might need to reset the router from time to time.

>> Expect to encounter wildlife. We regularly see trout, ducks, and otters in the river. Chipmunks are always scurrying around the property. If you’re lucky, you might see a deer or black bear. There will be bugs! A cost of being so close to the river. Consider packing bug spray, and please keep all screens to the house closed (even in the winter).

>> The lower level of the home stays quite cool in the summer. At night, the mountain air and river usually provide a cool breeze, so you can simply open the windows to cool off on a hot summer’s night. Each of the downstairs bedrooms has a fan, but no AC. We place an AC unit in the upstairs master bedroom during the summer months.

>> It can get very cold here in the winter! Our house will keep you cozy. We have an electric heating system, in addition to the wood burning stove — a very way to heat up the house! Use it if you’d like to, the house will stay warm either way.

Location

Upper Jay, New York, United States

The Adirondack State Park is a giant natural playground, with a seemingly never-ending supply of hiking, skiing, biking, and fresh water activities.

Our town of Upper Jay is a small hamlet conveniently located at the intersection of multiple towns and attractions in the High Peaks Region. Wilmington (the ski town home to Whiteface Mountain) is only 10 minutes away. Lake Placid is a 25 minute drive. The charming town of Keene is a mere 5 minute drive.

Keene, 5 Minute Drive

We adore the little town of Keene! Craft beer, kombucha, fancy sandwiches, and handcrafted furniture— it’s like Brooklyn meets the ADKs. We purchased Warner’s Camp in part due to its close proximity to Keene. Drive over, or bring your bike so you can ride down on a nice day.

Lake Placid, 25 Minute Drive

Shouldn’t need much of an introduction. For those unfamiliar with Lake Placid, it’s charming. A quaint Olympic Village with lakeside shops and restaurants. The entire town has a very nostalgic feel to it. Built up for the 1932 and 1980 Olympic Winter Games. You can drive through either Keene or Wilmington to reach Lake Placid from Warner’s Camp.
