A 1900 farmhouse that has been in the family for generations. Recently renovated to accommodate up to 5 guests, it is clean with simple furnishings and a SPECTACULAR VIEW! Located RIGHT ON NYS RTE 86 (close to the road) with easy access to nearby attractions.
The house is split in 2 and is designed for 2 families. I rent out "The View" using airbnb exclusively. My wife and I reside in the back portion of the house with a separate entrance and separate parking.

The space
The VIEW! The VIEW! The VIEW!
Downstairs is an open kitchen, dining, living room and bathroom complete with a shower and whirlpool tub. All sheets, blankets and towels are provided. The 3 bedrooms are located upstairs - 1 queen, 1 full, & 1 single. The 2 larger bedrooms now have air conditioning along with the downstairs living space (during summer and fall months. )
Outside, we have a fire pit with adirondack chairs to enjoy the view and a nice warm fire. We also have a BBQ grill available for those who'd rather grill! Come and enjoy the Adirondacks!
THIS HOUSE IS LOCATED RIGHT ON RT 86 AND CLOSE TO THE ROAD so you will hear some traffic mostly in the morning and late afternoon as people are traveling to and from work. Other times, too, of course. PLEASE VIEW THE PICTURES AS ADVERTISED ON MY AIRBNB PAGE.
We hope that our guests will enjoy the space and the view as we continue to make improvements!

Guest access
Our guests have full access to the FRONT half of this house (roadside), front yard, both side yards, and the field across the street! Also, the outside fire pit and BBQ grill! I live in the back part of the house with my wife and we have a separate entrance and driveway. Your portion of the house is separate and private from mine and has the BEST VIEW! The back of the house and buildings behind the house are private and not intended for guests. Thank you.

If you are looking to go to Lake Placid, please keep in mind my location. Being in Wilmington, I am about a 15 - 20 minute drive to Lake Placid! Most people don't mind this at all. Please also keep in mind that Whiteface Mountain is IN Wilmington and only about 8 minutes away.
The open field across the street is family property and is available to take small hikes, have a picnic, watch the wildlife, or just enjoy the view!
Cell phone service: we have excellent VERIZON cell service.

*NEW ITEMS since January 2019 include a couch, love seat, and a new mattress for the upstairs queen bed. We continually try to upgrade and improve the furnishings and equipment we have to offer the best value!

Hi we're John & Rachel! We are a little family of 3 with a love for hosting and making people's vacations the best we can on our end! I was born and raised in the Adirondacks. We have come to love this area and really enjoy hiking, camping, woodworking, and photography. We are pretty laid back, artistic, and adventurous. We enjoy the adventure of being a host, interacting with such a wide variety of people, and trying to make people feel at home.

During your stay
I will be available by phone or AirBnb messaging (by using WIFI available at the house) to answer any questions or needs.
I live in the back portion of the house with my own separate parking and building access (on the opposite side of the house). There is no shared space, guests have complete access to everything listed. I'm pretty busy most of the time, but if I happen to see you sitting outside having a good time, I might just stop by to say say hi and make sure you're comfortable or have any questions while still respecting your privacy. If you have any more questions about this, please feel free to message me!
