Veuillez contacter le propriétaire pour une description en français. Please check the calendar for pricing details for your specific travel dates. - You're moments from it all: skiing, Ironman, Lake Placid, High Peaks, the Ausable. All on a secluded estate guaranteed to give you privacy and an opportunity to fulfill any Adirondack experience. The apartment is located on 9 acres of an authentic rustic home nestled in a wooded and intimate setting. - This convenient location is perfectly situated for skiers, hikers, cyclist, outdoor enthusiasts, and athletes training and participating in the Lake Placid Ironman. Minutes away are the Adirondack High Peaks, and key cycling routes throughout Essex County. The property is located with a commanding view of Whiteface and borders the mighty Ausable River. - The apartment includes cotton linens, Woolrich blankets and down comforters providing you a cozy sleep experience in your George Jacques custom made beds. A healthy supply of Turkish towels and Kiehls body/hair products round out supplies to keep comfort levels high. - Amenities include a full kitchen with appliances (microwave, toaster oven, refrigerator, Keurig) that provide high end basics for meal preparation. - This unique property includes a heated garage space for those frigid Adirondack winter morning's. And, you can store your gear/bike/skis/gear safely in the garage. -The apartment includes a glass shower and changing room/ lavatory area, sitting room and eat-in kitchen for hearty Adirondack meals. - For electronics there's a Logitech UE Boom for listening to your own music or stream Pandora, HDTV and a blu-ray DVD player. - View for free one of our hundreds of DVD titles from our collection as you unwind after a day of exploring. - Wireless internet is included. - There is an ample sampling of coffees, teas and hot chocolates for the Keurig machine. - The owner will check you in. - Access to home's 'grounds' with beaver pond, hammock, stone deck with Adirondack chairs and picnic table. - Custom requests welcome: need something special in your room, access to a computer, VoIP, printer or international calls? If you expect it in a luxury boutique hotel, I will try to have it for you. - Given the rustic setting of this property - it is not well suited for children. Guest Access The apartment is located above a stand-alone garage and offers complete privacy. Please feel free to utilize the gas grill, hammocks or west facing stone patio that will give memorable sunsets. The Neighborhood - Whiteface: an Olympic Venue. You can get there in about 4 minutes and be on the Gondola in 8. Whiteface has steepest vertical in the East, and exceptional out of bound Slide skiing. Buy your tickets in advance, online, and save some money. Ask me for mountain suggestions. Each evening you can watch the snow cats as they groom the slopes for the next day's adventure. - Nordic. If you are a cross-country addict or just enjoy getting out in the fresh air Mount Van Hoevenburg is a short drive away. - Fly Fishing. Literally down the driveway is the Ausable River and some of the best trout fishing in the East. I can help you with guide recommendation or river suggestions. - Cycling. You can take off right out of the driveway and ride for a 100 miles on the Lake Placid Ironman course; or, explore some local routes with almost no traffic and views that you'll be talking about on your ride home. - Hiking. We're 20 minutes from the heart of the High Peaks and can help you select your day's hike or get you on your way to become an ADK46er ! - Our location is ideally suited for those participating or attending either the Lake Placid Horse Show or any of the Lake Placid sporting events - Other amenities: If you'd like to lay low for a day we can help you book local spa reservations. Adventure lies outside your door and I can help you plan an epic stay. Getting Around There is no public transportation in the area. Other Things to Note - Driveway in the winter: Check in with me about snow/freezing rain conditions before your arrival. The driveway can sometimes be tricky during storms or after heavy snow accumulation.More
