The log home is 1350 sq. ft , complete with beautiful, real, round log exterior walls, cedar and pine ceilings, hardwood floors, and giant log beams, with a huge 12'x24' ft exterior deck overlooking the Ausable River, and a master bedroom balcony over cedar logs, with direct views of Whiteface Mt and the Wilmingon Range. Just built in the fall of 2013, this brand new home was lovingly built by life-long Adirondack resident and owner and 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 and Wilmington Range across, set amid some towering white pines on the steep river bank. The house is set well in off the road and behind the neighbors' houses, for excellent privacy with no adjacent houses. The sounds of the West Branch of the Ausable River, or the wind through the pines from atop the cedar balcony, are the only thing one hears from the house, despite being located most conveniently only 30 seconds to the center of the small town of Wilmington and it's various shops. A staircase leads direct from the house down the steep riverbank right to the water's edge for good accessibility to the river. Exterior sofit lights cast spellbinding shadow patterns of the round log textures and cedar shake gables, making twilight a wonderful time to come home.
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 double 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 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 with bidet sprayer. 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.
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.

This place was simply amazing! We were looking for a place to escape for a quick weekend and this place was perfect for it. Brand new construction, well thought out and very detailed log cabin. Although its near other houses the way it was built you don't even notice, views look out over the adirondacks and are amazing to wake up to. The owner was very easy to work with everything was as described in the listing! We definitely will be back again someday soon! Very close to whiteface and lake placid.
I'm glad that this last-minute rental home worked for your family and you had a great experience in the Adirondacks, and thanks for taking good care of the house! Happy to give you (and any other return renters) a discount during your next Adirondack vacation!
Best regards, Johnathan Esper

My family had an amazing time on first adventure to this area and the log cabin experience added a lovely touch. We truly enjoyed this gorgeous home and the woodwork details inside. There was plenty of room for us, we were 2 adults and 2 kids. Our kids enjoyed the Futon upstairs for sleeping close by to us. Of course there is a TV there as well so that was nice for down time before sleep. The views were just amazing as well. Only negatives were heat took a while to get up to temperature, but that is being addressed. The driveway was very icy and a bit hazardous so be careful. I also did not care for the boulder that was used as a step to enter the home. I think this could be dangerous for certain people or children as well. Overall a lovely place though, well thought out and clean. Would definately consider staying there again next year
