Romance, Year-round Outdoor Adventure, Whiteface Views, Hot Tub, Fireplace!

Family-friendly chalet in Wilmington
2 bedrooms, 1 bath, sleeps 6
The '46er', named for those who have summited the highest peaks in the Adirondacks, keeps with the tradition of the 46ers.
She is well-equipped, well-oriented in a quiet and private setting, totally surrounded by beauty, begging you to stay when you visit.
Unlike just another impersonal rental property, you'll find the warmth and comfort of home, classy yet cozy.
The chalet is completely remodeled with hardwood floors, skylights, and a new fireplace insert.
It is nestled on a hillside facing Whiteface and the Stephenson Range. Whiteface Olympic Mountain, which offers the ultimate in winter sports, is only two miles away. It was voted the Best Ski Center in the North East! In the warmer months, Whiteface offers mountain biking, gondola rides and special events. Also within a few miles are world-class mountain biking trails accessed from Hardy Road, as well as the Wilmington Flume Trails. Don't miss enjoying a lovely afternoon on Lake Everest, canoeing or swimming at the town beach or visiting the amazing Wilmington Flume. If you love fly-fishing, you can't find a better location. Less than a mile away is the West Branch of the Ausable River which is famous for it's wily trout!! Wilmington is, indeed, an outdoor enthusiasts mecca!
Lake Placid Village, with all that it has to offer, is just ten beautiful miles away on one of the most picturesque roads in the Adirondacks. Here you can enjoy shopping, dining, arts and crafts, museums, The Olympic Center, golf, horse shows, movies, festivals, nightlife ... or 'in short' - the hustle and bustle of this special and lively Olympic Village.
When your spirit moves you beyond the chalet, so much awaits!
First you'll encounter the large, wrap around deck which sports Adirondacks chairs and an outdoor dining area with sometimes chickadees that will eat from your hand. You may not get much further for awhile.
The hot tub invites you for that romantic or relaxing dip after a day on the mountain. In the evening, you can sit by the stone ringed campfire and share the stories of your day. It is truly a magical place to be!
While the chalet can sleep a total of 6, please keep in mind that the living space is a total of 800 sq. ft. so guests may find it more comfortable with 4 or fewer folks.
Rooms open to patios. Bathrooms include a shower.
The recreational activities listed below are available either on-site or nearby; fees may apply.

5/5 Excellent

Quiet and peaceful
We had a great time! It was a quiet, peaceful location with an awesome view. We especially loved viewing the starry night from the hot tub! Thanks again!

5/5 Excellent

Spring break
We stayed in the 46er during spring break with 3 kids aged 6-9. We had a wonderful time - the loft area was a perfect hideaway space for the kids; the grounds offered privacy for outdoor fun in woods, around fire pit or in the hot tub. The chalet is very cozy but also very clean, efficient and well appointed. Location was great - minutes from Whiteface Mountain and easy access to Lake Placid and Keene valley. Lastly Susan was a pleasure to communicate with - very responsive and great guide to the local area. Will be back!

5/5 Excellent

We had an awesome time enjoying the hot tub and getting into nature. The house was super clean and cozy and smelled lovely. It was exactly what we wanted and needed away from it all in the middle of everything. We definitely will be returning in the future.

5/5 Excellent

Relaxing getaway
The chalet was perfect for my husband and I. We hiked and spent time in Lake Placid and Keane, but our favorite part was returning to the lovely chalet to relax. We loved the hot tub and fireplace, made meals in the sweet little kitchen and enjoyed coffee on the porch with stunning views. Thank you for an amazing experience!

5/5 Excellent

Winter wonderland
As soon as you walk in you know the host cleaned and sterilized well. As well as when opening the hot tub. The bed was comfortable and it was a perfect winter getaway. I highly recommend this place.
