  • Description

    Hot Tub! Log Cabin Sauna! Waterfront! Great Mountain Views! Otter Chalet is on 7 private waterfront acres along Lake Everest, right next to the Adirondack Wildlife Refuge. One of Wilmington's most popular private rentals, Otter Chalet has 2 large bedrooms, 3 full baths, a sleeping dorm with 3 thick, comfortable and queen-sized futons and Satellite TV, a sleeping loft with a queen futon, two 42" HDTV Flat Screen TVs with Satellite, and great views of Whiteface Mountain and the Ausable River. Otter Chalet can comfortably sleep 12.

    At Otter Chalet, the kids can safely camp outside, and draw their sleeping bags up to a roaring campfire, or camp inside in the dorm room, where they can play the Chalet's air hockey and foos-ball games, or watch Satellite TV. Log Cabin Wet Sauna, hot tub, satellite TV, DVD, VCR, stereo, high-speed wireless internet, microwave, barbecue, dishwasher, washer and dryer, and linens will help make Otter Chalet a convenient and hassle free vacation.

    Folks who stay at Otter Chalet may use the canoe and 3 kayaks provided on the river and Lake Everest without charge. Otter Chalet enjoys unimpeded views of Whiteface, Esther, Lookout and Marble Mountains, while the Wildlife Refuge next door includes an official New York State DEC Fishing Preserve within its Northern boundary, a guided, wildlife refuge hiking trail suitable for kids and dogs, and a lovely Adirondack meadow, suitable for picnics or snow football, surrounded by towering white pines.

    Otter Chalet is less than three miles driving from Whiteface Mountain, and within 10 miles of Lake Placid, the Olympic village, and the Adirondack High Peaks Region. Otter Chalet is on the edge of the Adirondack Wildlife Refuge, where your kids will get to meet wolves, bobcat, foxes, bald eagle and other birds of prey, while learning about their roles in nature.

    Canoe or kayak up and down the beautiful Ausable River, swim, fish for your dinner, or just sit back and observe as the local natural inhabitants play, browse, pursue and earn survival. We've seen Eagle, Hawk, Owl, Osprey, Loon, Heron, Merganser, Hummingbird, Pileated Woodpecker, Ermine, Bobcat, Fox, Coyote, Black Bear, Mink, Beaver, Porcupine, Deer, and Otter on Otter Chalet property, but the only people you'll see are folks paddling by in canoes and kayaks. Canoe into shallow water sloughs and channels on both sides of the river, where your kids will delight in seeing beaver, otter, frogs, painted turtles and herons.

    Hike any of the hundreds of trails in the region, mountain-bike, snow-shoe, cross-country ski up and down the river in front of the houses, downhill ski at Whiteface (or ride the gondola up with your mountain bike in the Summer), take fly fishing lessons, or just drive around and take in the incomparable beauty of Autumn in New York's Adirondack Mountains. In the evening, relax around the campfire outside, take in the stars, listen to the Wilmington Riverside rock & country concerts every Thursday night within 2 miles of the Lodge, or go into Lake Placid for dining and entertainment.

    Otter Chalet is a place to get away from it all, to rebuild, regroup, and face your busy lives with a renewed perspective. For those of you who are new to the Adirondacks, prepare to discover what we learned long ago (and weve hiked in parks all over the US, Canada and Alaska). There is no lovelier place in the world to vacation than the Adirondack Mountains: the Adirondacks has it all. From Canada or the U.S., call toll free 866-235-9655.
